TokyoMonoHaraShi, a game similar to the Persona series is under development for the PSP by Atlus.

Prologue

Tokyo Mono Hara Shi: Karasu No Mori Gakuen KitanTokyo Mono Hara Shi: Karasu No Mori Gakuen KitanTokyo Mono Hara Shi: Karasu No Mori Gakuen Kitan

A little note called Hako is being kept somewhere in Shinjuku, where it was sealed to prevent bad things from happening. However, someone opened it and you'll be able to find out the reasons behind this through a series of mysteries inside the game.

Kamifuda

Tokyo Mono Hara Shi: Karasu No Mori Gakuen Kitan

A type of cards that have spells written on it and can turn living things into ghost, which take the forms of bat, dog and lizard based on some of the concept arts revealed in the mag. An organization called OXAS, where our hero is a member, makes it their responsibilities to collect these dangerous cards.

Game Flow

Tokyo Mono Hara Shi: Karasu No Mori Gakuen Kitan

Shichidai Kazuki, the main character, is identified as someone who possess the special abilities to find out the "real truth" and together with Chimeki Zero (image above) and Mutoo Ichiru, they go to Fuji to earn the rights to become Fusatsu Master, the members behind OXAS. After several daunting tests, in which they fight off countless ghosts and build up a nice bond between them, Kazuki and his friends succeeded and decided to move into Karasu No Mori School in Tokyo to start their career collecting Kamifuda.

Game System

Tokyo Mono Hara Shi: Karasu No Mori Gakuen Kitan

The game consists of school life for story progression and 3D dungeon for fighting ghosts. The former is basically searching the school for Kamifuda while talking to people for clues. A list of possible reactions are displayed on screen for players to select during these conversation.

Once inside a dungeon, the game switches to first-person view and players are required to make use of their special abilities to solve the various puzzles and gimmicks. Battle is AP-based and will starts when they run into ghost.

TokyoMonoHaraShi is currently more than 60% done and will be out in Japan this spring.

And here is the opening.

It looks like what Persona shoud have been.

I'll be looking out for this, but it looks like the type of title that stays in Japan.

I would say the same for Persona, so we will just have to see how things turn out.

This looks like a game I'll be keeping an eye out to find. I still want to get Persona for PSP, even though I know it is generally regarded as rubbish.

Definitely looking cool. Something that'd fill my "personal" time quite nicely.

Really don't like the character designs, and the dungeon crawling in persona 3 was pretty bleh, the rest of the game is what made it great, luckily they limited it to about 10 floors per dungeon in Persona 4, keep dungeon crawling out of my normal games.
