Kotaku: The wicked-cool video game Persona 3 is perhaps best described as "Basically, Buffy The Vampire Slayer reimagined at a super fashionable Japanese high school." If you're anything like me, that description alone would be enough to make you want to play.
And what do you know? I've been playing Persona 3 Portable essentially nonstop for the last month and a half, and the more I play, the more I realize: This game isn't just like Buffy, it practically is Buffy. Not only do both stories involve supernatural extermination set in a high school (Gekkoukan/Sunnydale) that doubles as a gateway for demons (Hellmouth/Tartarus), their respective casts of characters are practically a 1:1 match.
Don't believe me? Check it out. Here now, the cast of Persona 3 and their Buffy counterparts.
