Not much is known about the game yet other than what we have seen. I've seen some people compare it to Etrian Odyssey. But I'm not familiar enough with this title to make any real comparisons. This isn't the first Persona games to mix the characters from other games but it's the first "traditional" title we have ever seen. I'm excited for this game and all of the other new Persona games coming out. Even Persona 4: Dancing All Night, which I can't see getting a western release. All we can do now is keep our eyes open for more new on the games.
The Nintendo eShop for the Wii U and 3DS id back up and running after being down. Nintendo has confirmed that it is back up and that they will continue to monitor the situation. This is what Nintendo had said on their facebook page regarding to the doen time;
"Thank you very much for your patience while we perform maintenance on the Nintendo eShop and Nintendo Network. We sincerely appreciate your ongoing support. We wanted to share some details on what is causing this downtime, and update you on the current outage in service.
The initial outage was primarily caused by a one-time surge in demand over the recent holidays, compounded by the following:
1) An influx of new Nintendo Network accounts being created and accessing the Nintendo eShop.
2) Existing Nintendo 3DS account information being moved to new Nintendo Network accounts.
We are continuing to adjust our network to meet the needs of all our services and applications. To ensure our global audience has an expected level of consistency in service, we took the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS offline. We expect to have it back online no later than 4 a.m. ET on Dec. 29, but may have to perform more maintenance in the future.
We truly apologize for the inconsistencies in our online services. We are working hard around the clock to fully restore these functions, and will continue to keep you updated on our progress."
