"Persona 3 is the most exciting, challenging, and ambitious title in the SMT series to date!" said Yu Namba, Project Lead for P3. "While still faithful to its roots, it takes the series in a bold new direction with the implementation of the Social Link system, where your relationship with not just party members but also a huge cast of characters is critical to your success! Tired of endless random battles and character leveling? Then, focus on your Social Links instead... How you play the game is up to you!"
