Persona 4: The Golden's Intro Movie Drips With Style And Harmonica Riffs

If you want to get excited about the upcoming release of Persona 4: The Golden on the PS Vita, there are few better ways than watching its opening cinematic. It features a style-drenched, poppy run through the cast of characters, all accompanied by "Pursuing My True Self" by Shihoko Hirata.

If you are a regular reader, you know that I'm quite a fan of Persona 3 now that I'm finally playing it on Vita. I haven't played Persona 4 and know next to nothing about it, except that it's widely held to be better than Persona 3, and the Vita version will feature all new bonus stuff similar to Persona 3 Portable on the Vita.

Will I be able to wait until later this year to play this game, or will I have to download it and at least give it a run on PS3 before then? Only time will tell. In the meantime, let's just watch this excellent opening cinematic a few more times.

And hey, while you're here, here are the two openers for Persona 3 Portable, which leaves open the door that we might get a second video for P4 The Golden as well. These always ease the pain of dying and being kicked back to the menu.

Here's the first one.

And you know what? Despite searching high and low, I cannot find a video of the other one anywhere. It's the groovy one that starts out with the clean electric guitar, if anyone wants to look for it.

I might just have to say "screw it" and buy Persona 4 on PS3. I want to play this game already, and I'm nearly finished with Persona 3. Then again, there is so little delayed gratification in the world these days...


    Awesome graphics, but I preferred the original and the anime one (the first version, not that terrible second opening)

    Wait to play Persona 4 on Vita, it's going to have far more features than the original, so it'll be worth the wait.

    Persona 4 on PS2 you mean and not PS3? Wait for Vita :D

    The second opening for P3P is just the opening they used for the original Persona 3 when it was on the console. So if you just search Persona 3 opening you'll find it on YouTube. I like the P3P one better, just to add my two cents.
