European release date confirmed for Persona 4

Square-Enix finally fixed their sights on a largely rumoured 13th March 2009 date for the European release of Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4. The critically acclaimed RPG will come with a bonus 24 song CD and at the moment is holding a budget price of £17.99 on most online retailers.

The game centers around a small town where strange murders are happening. For some reason, these tend to correspond to the weather in the town. Just like in Persona 3, you have to balance your school life but with Persona 4, the pace will pick up as there is no telling when the weather will turn bad.

Trailer: Muramasa: The Demon Blade

This period of gaming may well be quiet for those without RPG tendancies, but in the future, things are looking rosier. Take this for example. Here's a gameplay trailer for Muramasa: The Demon Blade for the Wii. The game is made by Vanillaware, the makers of Odin Sphere. Now you know why it looks so similar. Judging by the visuals, we're seriously hoping this game triumphs in the gameplay department as well as the visual content.
