Persona 4: Golden | Review

Posted on December 18, 2012 by Kirk Williford


That’s perhaps the easiest and most accurate way to describe Atlus’ remake of one of the best RPGs on the PS2.

Rise of the Hutt Cartel brings high level players five new levels to experience with the new level 55 cap. On top of this is new story missions and a planet, Makeb, designed for the game’s most advanced characters. Aside from the new fully voiced story content Bioware haven’t revealed what new features this expansion will bring. Stay tuned for more!
