So what will happen in Persona 5's Velvet room?
>Igor will still be there, but they reuse his old VA's recordings
>Igor will be there with a new Jpn VA
>Elizabeth will be there as your guide
>Door.jpg will be freed and serve as your guide
>Door.jpg will be freed and serve as your guide
We can only hope
>Marie guides you via poems
Hate...I HATE YOU
Persona...is the opposite of HATE
Believe within. WITHIN!
That will guide you...towards the answer...
this is such a slippery slope
it could turn out perfect or it could turn into blatant fanservice that shits on p3's ending
either way its highly likely that they will bring him back
Maries whole point was that she wanted to leave the velvet room and become an ordinary person
shes also a weather reporter now, as much as I was afraid of ATLUS actually doing this I don't think they would go this far for their waifu, completely contradicting themselves
Means Persona will be even more casual then before.
OK guys get with me here
>Marie becomes new velvet room master
Loses the shitty poems, becomes a likable character and doesn't interfere with the story any more than Igor did
I know its a long shot but it would be nice right?
I'm gonna be completely honest. I played P3 on PSP and enjoyed it and I loved p4 and re-bought it when Golden came out. I never payed much attention to P3 so can someone give me a quick explanation on why MC is a door? I just remember redhead giving a speech then suddenly everyone "remembered" what had happened and ran off. Was there another ending I was supposed to get?
The sad thing about Marie is that I hate her so much that I can't even jack off to her. I mean she has a nice rack, I like the whole sock thing and she generally looks pretty hot but I just can't stop thinking about the shitty poems and the shoehorning.
Anyone else feel like this?
SHUT UP YOU CRAZY OLD CUNT
I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT A SUNDER IS
>I played P3 on PSP
It amazes me how almost everyone on the planet seems to have a PSP instead of a PS3.
Yes, P3 FES, has a 30 hour epilogue called The Answer. It explains everything that happens after the ending of P3. Look up the cutscenes on youtube or something.
P3P, the inferior version, does not have the epilogue.
Long story short. You played the wrong version m8.
VOTE NOW FOR THE LOVE OF YU
Minako is life. Minako is love
>Starting shit with fans of the Persona games
I'll love Yu alright.
With my penis and a hammer.
Nope, played the game with minimal influence from /v/ and I liked her for the most part. I thought she was pretty cute.
I can see why some wouldn't like her but I don't see why they go full autist like>>253682594
I had actually played the regular P3 on PS2 when it came out. I skipped out on FES because I didn't know the epilogue was such a big thing and thought it would only amount to about 30 minutes more of content. Then I bought P3P when it came out because I wanted to enjoy the game without the annoying inability to control party members.
There will be no Velvet Room, there'll be something completely different instead and it will have no ties to what came before.
What? Persona 3 already tossed out everything but Igor and the Velvet Room anyway, P5 might as well finish the job.
What do you want the new Velvet Room will be, /v/?
A penthouse with a skyline view for me.
An actual summation is this:
Nyx itself isn't an entirely evil entity. It came to Earth because people yearned for it, egged on by Strega and the fact that the MC returned to the city, reawakening a piece of Nyx in the process.
Or, really, it was the piece of Nyx inside of him that called him back to the city.Anyways, the only way to stop Nyx's true form is to perform the The Great Seal. MC becomes a door, but he's not blocking Nyx from getting to Earth. He's blocking all of humanity's malice and desire for self-destruction from reaching and summoning Nyx. The beginning of Arena shows that Elizabeth is routinely destroying this giant shadow as it tries to break through the great seal, protecting the soul of P3's MC.
Persona 3 MC's body is gone. Because of his promise a small part of his soul remained tethered to a physical form. Once that promise is fulfilled his soul leaves his physical body and inhabits the great seal/giant door.
>Mostly P3-P4 villains
>Couldn't even spell the name of the one P2 villain
>mfw I'm playing it as we speak (emulated)
>mfw it's fun to see where the series started
>mfw I'm enjoying it
That might be neat, I bet it'll be jail related though, since the jail theme and red is the central color. Maybe like a visitation room or something.
Also the music better be punk rock.
Only problem is the amount of skills/ailments and the XP system.
>mfw going from P1 to P2
>mfw going from IS to EP
Those three games just tied right into each other, it was beautiful.
Help. I started Persona 2 IS a few months back, and I want to finish it and play P1 and P2 EP, only problem is I'm a modern-fag who can't stand random encounters in vidya rpgs.
Should I just watch a let's play or all the cutscenes via Youtube?
Get a PSP, run a PSX emulator on it and emulate P2 EP and play the PSP remakes of P1 and P2IS.
The only thing I really want for Persona 5 is dual audio, so that I don't have to wait 18 years to emulate undub shit on my PC.
Like I said, you can emulate PSX games on a PSP. Just play the original playstation release of EP as they never localized the PSP release. If you must play on your PC just use PPSSPP and a PSX emu.
>damn that soundtrack can go die in a fire
Why tho? It's fine
some shitty moe pandering waifu
who needs a cool creepy old man with a distinct design who's been in every game when you could just have some uninspired little girl who a bunch of idiots blindly love for no reason
NIgga, you're going to talk about P1 ost don't use that fucking battle theme. Imagine hearing that shit every 2 steps and then BRURUBRMUBRUBMRB DUDMDUDMU BURBRMBRUBM. Use some other stuff like
People don't like Marie mainly because of how she's worked into the story.
If she was made during the vanilla P4, I'm sure they would've found a better way to implement her into the story.
With P4 Golden Atlus was just like
"SHIT! HOW DO WE DEVELOP HER CHARACTER!?"
I fucking played it, the encounter rate is not as bad as you whiny five year olds keep saying.
The American version might as well not exist. Pretty standard fare for Atlus localizations.
If you play Golden first
like I did, she's fine. I'm pretty sure 95% of the hate for her just stems from her being new to that version.
I think that's the same reason people
incorrectlyprefer the old Chie voice.
>they had to lower the encounter rate because of murikans
Anyone notice igors living conditions are going down hill? First few games he has a room with a piano player and a painter and a singing bitch, then he has to live in a elevator, then a car, is the velvet room in Persona 5 going to be the handicapped stall at a mall foodcourt?
>>Sounds like an actual teenager in golden
Get your ears checked, m8. Golden chie's voice is only fit to play that one girl in the class that has braces and acne and glasses and is loud and annoying as fuck. No one likes that girl. Vanilla chie was a spunky likeable tomboy.
So I've been playing P3 FES, I'm at October, when do I get to bone Mitsuru?
Not even about weeaboo, just what's the point of playing a butchered as shit half-game?
Has nothing to do with the audio, has everything to do with bizarre localizations that completely rewrite characters and plots.
Are you talk persona revelations or shin megami tensei:persona?
After the school trip, you'll get to bone her.
But you gotta
>Have highest level of academics
>Score 1st place on any Exam
You wanna fuck the classiest bitches you gotta study hard bruh
>That is loud and annoying as fuck
you're literally describing Chie right now
>spunky likeable tomboy
no anon, that's a 40 year old woman, you can hear the 40 year old woman-ness in every word she says
P1 didn't even have voice acting.
Revelations was the US name for the PS1 version, right? That one.
Atlus games I play all the time. Atlus USA I wrote off as a lost cause decades ago.
Oh here we go... I thought Fitsgerald's performance fit Chie pretty good. If she wanted to sound liek what you're describing we could have got May Kanker. Not saying Rooney was bad, just some of the lines she delivered sounded a little TOO old for a 16 year old girl... Though I blame that somewhat on the director.
Mark my words: Elizabeth will find a way to free the logical, persona/arcana-knowledgable part of MC's soul while leaving his emotional, friendship and bond-based part back as the seal. That way, MC can still reappear while not negating the message of P3 and his sacrifice. He'll still be the same apathetic blank slate that we've come to know and love.
Bonus if he gets his own little storyline wondering where he came from or whatever.
They also completely shoot that in the foot by using Western conventions like addressing each other by first names where last names would be appropriate, killing the point of using honorifics in the first place
One sounds too old, and one sounds too fucking young. How come some people think vanilla chie is "old" but never comment on yukiko's voice? It's even lower pitched than vanilla chie's.
Enjoy these Persona 5 threads while they last.
As soon as Atlus shows off the trailer and we see the cast....
>Damn that girl at 0:49 tho
>Oh shit, that third girl from the left is hot as fuck
>So 4th girl or 2nd girl?
hugthat blond girl /v/?
Mode7 just helped me fix the minipsf2 files for the DDS soundtrack.
Oh my god spider's string 1-6 its so fucking good.
Some but not all characters call each other by their last names though. And the only ones i can think of that call each other by their first names from the start are like yukiko and chie since they're friends.
>one of those visitation rooms where there's glass separating the two people and they have to talk through phones
>Igor/new VR fuser slides the fused persona card through a opening at the bottom of the glass
This is the first possible Velvet Room idea that I found to be both plausible and interesting.
Yeah the americanized version is revelations, that was a mess.
I hope eriko is the main character of persona 5 she's my favourite!
tl;dr there are a shitton of songs not on the OST and I'm playing them right now.
Margaret reaction to Marie's behavior was fucking priceless
>not pandoras final battle
that's probably the most grievous one
>wasting your time learning a language for dweeb nerds
There's enough of them around to translate anything worth playing or seeing
The gas attendant's reaction, oh gosh.
>wait how does this kid know what the fuck
This one goddamn scene is always used against new Chie, I like new Chie more and even I agree that was overdone. But using that scene as an argument is like using "Aha, is this our chance" for old Chie.
But it's fucking better than old lady/man Chie. I remember turning on Persona 4 for the first time and hearing Chie, holy shit.
Roughly in eternal punishment she's 22 and a model.
P4G anime is NG+, it's pretty hilarious how everyone reacts to Yu at the beginning.
The only thing P4 did better is that the menus look a bit sleeker. It's debatable whether or not having control over your party members is better.
Well, the true ending was kinda cool so there's that too.
>a dark song that fits the tone of the rest of the game and the fight
>some terrible guitar song that sounds like a dynasty warriors song
Get your ears examined
Making it NG+ is such a great idea, considering how it's the second version of an already existing series. I might buy a Crunchyroll account sub to check out the first ep or something.
It's good for some giggles.
doubt it I am sure they cut a lot of shit from P4 since hardware limits but now they are working on the ps3 so they can do more shit trust me I also have hopes low but I am sure it won't be that bad also they are using a specific engine created to make the game so I am interested of how is going to look
In P4 Arena, Elizabeth says her main goal is to try and free P3 MC from being a Door.
At the end of her story she gets the Wild Card, a sign of a journey about to begin.
I'm thinking that Elizabeth will learn the true meaning of friendship or something, and defeat Nyarlothetop in P4AU, and use him as the seal, and free P3's soul.
But since P3's body is long since gone and rotted, MC can't return to the living world, so he and Elizabeth will guide others through their journeys so that they may find the answer as well.
/ fanficition. Sorry.
If persona 5 doesn't habe prime personas I'm done with this
The OG games are generally better than the animu crossovers anyways. There's a few exceptions but OGs, OGG, and 2nd OG are better than most of the games in the franchise.
I like SRW a lot, but I prefer Final Fantasy Tactics
Fire Emblem is shit though
I just want to know where P5 is gonna take place.
P3 was in some sort of Island city
P4 was some Jap country side
I can't see how having control over your party members is debateable. P3 RNG for party member decisions was fucking backwards at time, and super frusterating. With P4, you have the choice to do whatever, and in any case, you could set them to do whatever they want.
the final battle theme from the revalations sounds like the final boss area on the map, leading up to the final boss.
hey remember that song that played BEFORE the final boss theme? no? that's what that song is to me.
>Burn my Dread
Why not TBFES and Mist?
In P3 it felt like learning how the characters would attack was part of learning the characters and you had to work that into your strategy. The RNG was very limited if you used the orders.
>defeat Nyarlothetop in P4AU, and use him as the seal
>Nyarlathotep will become the seal separating Nyarlathotep and Nyarlathotep
>Piercy is MIA
>The Tatsuya you knew is in a world that is completely destroyed, leaving one oblivious to the events behind - likely a detective in his mid-late 20s at this point
>Persona's MC is a door, and will likely remain this way
>P4's protagonist moved back home but still keeps contact with his friends, regularly rendezvousing with them in order to kill Shadows for shits and giggles
Z1 and Alpha 1-3 and Gaiden are probably the best out of all the anime ones. I'd add W too but honestly as much as I like it it's got a bunch of kind of hilarious bugs in it. MX is cool too.
OG only started being good with Gaiden, and even then it's not as good as the main series or Masoukishin.
Yeah, god forbid you prove you have no fucking clue what you're talking about and just assume it's shit because IT'S ALL JAPANESE AND SHIT
Eh, if we're going for quality, the PSP titles are probably the best, especially the Z2 duology and Masoukishin 2. The DS games and UX on the 3DS are also pretty great.
F and Final.
Port Island was some kind of manmade transport hub that acted as a front of Kirijo's horrific machinations. Two was even worse about it (But that was because lelrumors).
If anything 4 was the odd one out because it really was just an ordinary town, besides apparently being a gate to the underworld.
>goes around claiming they are the best SRPG ever
>assumes people didn't play them
>pulls out OMG YOU HATE THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE JAPANESE
>in a Persona thread
so you are retarded, I am sorry for you
>playing persona 4
>get to the evening scene at amagi inn
>mfw mc-kun and those other faggots pass up the opportunity to go balls deep in major kashiwagi and hanako
BULL. FUCKING. SHIT.
YES I MAD.
UX is the only one of the more recent ones I actually haven't played, I don't have a Japanese 3DS. I'm still debating whether I want to spend the money on shipping to get a physical copy of Z3.1, or just buy a Jap point card and download it. I'll probably just get it when Z3.2 comes out.
>yfw some of the romance scene lines were so fucking doujin tier
Except Erebus is literally Nyarlathotep.
Nyx is arguable though, the only hints at it were supposedly Source Books and Tatsuyas Scenario in EPP.
In japan anyone older than like 20 is considered a used up stinky old hag that you would never want.
Just get a JP 3DS, you need one anyway for DQM
What else am I supposed to assume when people say stupid shit about them that indicates they have no idea about the franchise? And it's not like Persona threads don't have an overdose of shitposters
like all the people claiming 3 is any good
Now I get it.
>you meet Randolph Carter, strongest persona user
>Cthulhu will rise one day
>all demons are actually shadows, they look like demons because HUMAN MIND and MYTHOLOGY
Probably a shit load more.
There's a whimsical adventure that involves Not-Abdul Alhazred, Angra Mainyu, and a cat.
Tl;Dr apparently every demon in the series were just rumor demons given life by Nyarlathotep, and when he got wrecked in EP they all sort of went away except for those with extremely strong basis for the rumor IE: Izanami (Being religion and all that)
Also apparently when Nyarly was kill he literally split into every single shadow in existence. I'm not sure how much this rumor holds true but because it's a rumor it has to be true. Plus it makes sense I guess
I like seeing the fancy animations on my TV
I just hope Z3.2 has Gunleon in it (I mean it probably will, but still), that'll make me buy both parts in a heartbeat.
I should probably actually finish Z2.1 and 2.2, I got burnt out on SRW after playing like 6 of them in a row
I could see Door Jesus acting in the Velvet Room. As long as it isn't Marie.
>they pass up the opportunity to go balls deep in each other
Isn't there something about dying in the collective uncousfnsdgj where you can turn into a shinigami making Sudou the Reaper from P3 true? I remember people talking about it
There must be that one bastard who force her into P4, arena and now into every fucking single scene in anime. Just what the fuck is this shit ? Same thing with following episode.
>no option to take up kanji on his offer of a no-strings attached blowjob when you max his social link
that jacket is so fucking rad why are high collars so fucking rad
I have no idea, I've had the translation logs bookmarked for almost a year now and never got around to actually finishing them.
Don't suppose you could go into greater detail?
>Snow Queen Quest
Man thantos tower has demons and traps that seal personas, also items only heal 10% of what they normally do, that place is some fuck.
So that's where the unseal persona ability is used? I've had it for awhile and never used it yet.
Good now I'm moving the goal posts if persona 5 doesn't have rumour spreading as a mechanic I'm done.
What how he's just a pile of butterflys these days?
Then why is it the same for the guy from persona 1 and maya and tatusya of persona 2?
sorry meant to reply to >>253696571
Why did he allow it to change in 3 and 4 then but have 3 people see the same damn room, something doesn't add up.
is this serious? I guess this is how it feels like when Asians stereotype white people.
>80 year old voice actors
They could fall at any moment.
My guess is it's something to do with it being multiple people with the Wild Card rather than just one. More people needed more room and more attendants, that or maybe that each person actually saw the room differently, but we the player saw it in a specific way due to controlling multiple people at once
The real answer is the devs got bored of the original look and wanted something new.
Death is a hunter unbeknowest to his prey...
what were your thoughts on first person camera views?
honestly without playing the games first person camera dungeon crawling is really confusing but after you get used to it it becomes much better than third person(at least for atlus).
Hearse, shit was chill as fuck
>You will never have Margaret mix you a Margarita to have with Igor
I liked it, the only real problems with the game were the ungodly encounter rates (Which is normally fine, except..), stacking ailments, and the fact that the AI actually tries to kill you.
I don't care how hard I've grinded, if I get hit with 5 Mabufudynes in a row I'll cave eventually.
So, what do you expect the new MC will look like guys?
Red hair like Tatsuya?
I hope he's sort of a delinquent or some shit and has a pompadour
But in all seriousness, I hope to god he is not limited to one weapon type like the P4 protagonist was.
I liked it.But i know it's not coming back.
>Shadows are Nyarly
>Edogawa is Nyarly
>Every antagonist is either Nyarly or sponsored by Nyarly
>Everyone is Nyarly
>Those who aren't are Philemon
I'm not sure if I'm even joking.
Actually, I'm kinda curious about something.
Since Persona usually has some similarities with JJBA, do you think Persona 5 will have some references to part of JJBA?
Like maybe a boss that has a major split personality disorder ala Doppio/Diavolo.
Door-kun should be there with absolutely 0 explanation as to why. Just leave it up to the imagination of the fanbase. But knowing atlus they'd fuck it up and somehow incorporate Teddoe (Atlus' lightning) somehow
PersonaQ has some JoJo posing in the intro so I guess anything is possible.
>when Nyarly was kill he literally split into every single shadow in existence
Doesn't that mean that Teddie is also Nyarly?
Actually, that's one of the things I didn't like about P4. Why the fuck was Teddie different from shadows, even before he met IT?
And how did he grow a body? That's some bullshit right there.
Maybe one of your teammates will have an incredibly overpowered Persona that he barely ever uses
, then betrays you and sides with the main villain, which Fugo was supposed to do instead of just being written out.
Atlus has said that they will not be recasting him and will be reusing lines from past games, japan is autistic like that, when namco released a kinnikuman game with out the original VA they would not buy it out of respect since he has been doing the voice for years. The reason Heihaci was deaged was to explain the new heihachi va and are planning to keep him young when using new lines
So what Mythology do you think Altus will go for this time?
Are there any stories related to imprisonment?
More specifically about doing some major action, like going against a god's wish or something.
My take on the situation is that he managed to grow an Ego because of some sort of reason, maybe Philemon decided to make him one of the chosen one or maybe Nyarlathotep just didn't really like that fraction or really any reason. The point is he managed to grow an Ego similar to how Labrys did, and maybe just molded it into an "Ideal" human form?
It would make sense that since his Shadow was pretty much a lazy Nyarls and by rejecting it he managed to get a Persona instead of accepting it. I'm tired as fuck so everything is starting to seem like an Evangelion/Kingdom hearts conspiracy
Tl;Dr he's already half Philemon
Philemon needs to stop being a bitch.
Why are the newer Personas shitting on these demi-gods?
>All mighty being in P1/2
>A fucking butterfly in P3/4
>Root of all evil in P1/2
>Reduced to making a shadow of a fucking dog in P4AU
P5 better fix this.
Am I the only one who would've been fine with all the VAs of the Hiimdaisy comic dub voicing the new characters in Golden? The voices actually suited the characters pretty damn well
Just an option the have a pompadour would make me happy, be it a costume or optional hair style.
I want depressed suicidal Dandy to be the MC
>having to do SL with a guy who only says the same word and has a helmet he never wears and some old delusional guy who thinks he's a robot
Everyone should because if you stopped being ignorant you would realize that in Japan when a voice actor dies their character is retired in respect. Stop being a fucking moron.
>Everyone should because if you stopped being ignorant you would realize that in Japan when a voice actor dies their character is retired in respect.
No they are not.
Nope. You have no evidence beyond uncommon exceptions.
a handful of the sum is not enough for a conclusive rule. especially when such a character is recurring in a game.
Do you think Nintendo's going to stop making Mario games when Martinet is dead? Fuck off retard.
Only very rare cases do they just get new VA. Sayla from Gundam was written out and only showed up as a bloody mute for most of the UC Gundam series despite her character being quite important for Char because her VA first went to a trip in Africa then died. They only got her a new VA for Gundam Origins since it's a retelling of 0079 before her VA died.
Why would you hire a 80+ year old voice actress for a mascot character? Even if it sold like shit there was no real guarantee she'd be available for a sequel, let alone an entire series?
>Take place in Inaba
>You see the whole persona 4 cast again
GOD DAMN IT!
Bitch please, you wouldn't have your "fag mastah" without P1 and P2. Learn some respect you bunt, your ilk doesn't even respect the Megami Tensei franchise for the most part and focuses on Persona, the least you can do it respect the damn series.
Or are you saying P4 would've happened regardless of the past games?
That reference implies way too much, especially when you replay the Nanjo route in EP after playing P3. You have artificial persona users, the blobby kegare, and the rumor about robots.
Also the events of EP happened the same year as the Kirijo explosion.
>Music better be punk rock
I was thinking that p5 will be punk inspired too since aggression and rebelling against the established is pretty much theme. Hopefully the artstyle wont be too edgy as fuck.
And then they gave Captain Bright a new VA for Gundam Unicorn. Kabuto Kouji got a new VA when his old one retired too.
Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't, that's all there really is to it.
Wasn't the appriser sealed along with the maternal being?
What are the odds that the seal is broken and the malevolent entity decides on the appriser or MC-kun as a permanent host in ultimax?
Posting best girl.
His consciousness didn't remain intact? When the maternal being spoke after the battle the tone was overly familiar and sympathetic for a being meant to bring destruction.
I guess that WOULD be explained as another reason for it to be known as the material being though.
Why can't you be an idort like Teddie, /v/?
It'd be neat if they worked it so that door-kun isn't 100% free, but his presence in the Velvet Room was a projection of his consciousness and he does all his speaking through Elizabeth. Just like there were all those covered up doors in the Velvet Room in P3, there'd be this one door in the corner of the room with a sheet draped halfway over it, but you can totally tell it's THE door.
Then, you could fight him as a two stage optional boss in the endgame, one as himself, and the other as the door
>no waifu shit
>all grills look like tumblr rejects
>le so fanny memes
yeah I dont even want to get it anymore.
The new anime is a reaction face goldmine, just like the first one.
