Reading Material: Persona 4: Official Design Works
While less of a heavy read and more a frolic through the artistic process of Shigenori Soejima, this art book deserves pride of place on any Persona fan’s bookshelf. The book offers detailed biographies, early concept pieces, an interview with the game’s art director, and even some new, post-game art pieces. It’s also less expensive than you might think, with prices starting at just under £20 on Amazon, or in specialist shops, like Travelling Man in Manchester City Centre. Fans will not be disappointed in the lovely content, although I would have liked a larger environment section to dissect.
Also, don’t forget that Persona 4: Golden is released on the PSVita on February 22nd, with Persona 4 Arena scheduled for release later this year.
