Persona 4… The Play?


Persona 4 has been getting some attention over the past few months. It is getting a port on the Playstation Vita, a fighting game on the Playstation 3, a new anime and a new manga. Now the popular entry of the Persona franchise is heading for the stage. That’s right, it is becoming a play… sort of.

Visualive Persona 4 will be its name as it reflects the type of stage show that it i. Visualive is a type of stage show where it combines both live performance and special effects. Behind the production will be Marvelous AQL in association with Atlus, the developers and publishers of the Persona series.

Fans of the series will also get their own input. Due to the main character being named by the player in the game, the same principle will be applied for the stage adaptation. This means that, for each performance, the name of the protagonist will change, according to the fans. The adaptation will run from March 15 to March 20 2012 at the Sunshine Theater in Ikebukuro, Japan. Ticket prices will be between ¥7,000 to ¥10,000. If yu are interested (and can read Japanese), then maybe you would want to visit the official site, which includes info on the cast.

Here is a poster for the event:

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
