In 1996 Atlus debuted its Shin Megami Tensei: Persona series to Japan with massive success, then slowly gained fame in the US in the early part of the 2000’s.

Persona 4 Arena, a fighting game, was released in 2012, and the first four were re-released on PSP and PS Vita with Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden.
