RPGamer writes: "Now that everyone has had time to reflect upon the critically acclaimed Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3, Atlus USA is ready to reveal its true power. Persona 3 FES is a "director's cut" of the original dungeon crawler/dating sim and contains enough new material to justify a $29.99 re-release.
The upcoming release consists of two chapters on a single disc: The Journey and The Answer. The Journey (originally known as Episode Yourself) is an enhanced version of the story told in Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 that includes new quests, social events, Persona, costumes, synthesis combinations, and a Hard mode. The Journey also contains an upgraded Weapon Fusion system to help deal with the new challenges. Atlus promises surprises as well, so completionists who've sunk countless hours into Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 will have to return to the hallowed ranks of the Special Extracurricular Execution Squad to find out what they're missing."
