Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable brings one of the finest JRPGs of the last five years to your handheld. Gamers have been treated to two renditions of it on PS2, and now with Atlus' redux on PlayStation Portable, high school kids can take their PSPs to high school to... yeah, this is gonna get weird. One of the new additions to Persona 3 Portable is the ability to play through the story as a female character, which provides a whole new dynamic in how characters react to you. Kat Bailey has put in her fair share of time on the new version, and she's got plenty to say. Here's one choice quote regarding the new feature:
"Relationships also play out quite differently this time around. It's much easier to forge a close relationship with Yukari, and Junpei will frequently express bitterness at having to play second fiddle to a girl. Fans will also appreciate a small cameo by a certain Persona 4 character, which is only possible to attain in the female campaign."
