Are you ready to be a lesbian, /v/?
Persona 5 Thread
>Tokyo Game Show
>Relevant to console market in 2014
They should just do a broadcast on nico and save money on the booth space. Also fuck Sega and fuck Sony for making another Persona anime jesus christ Kaz.
Who even is this? I really doubt the protagonist of P5 will be a girl though. Even if she is, there's no way she'll be lesbian. This is Japan we're talking about, where, LGBT issues aren't taken well.
Fake. Look at the P, the 5, and the "A" in Tokyo Game Show. None of it looks remotely professional. I wouldn't be surprised if that line art was taken from somewhere else, either.
I'm not talking about the language; I'm talking about the graphic design. None of it looks consistent with the actual design they've put out, or even the official logo.
Also, I found out the picture is just a retrace of this can art.
I decided to make a cosplay of P5's protag once they're revealed.
>mfw there will be a female protagonist only
We went through this a few hours ago. It's fake as fuck, OP has just added a fucking generic girl on the cover. Persona (????) is not how it's actually written.
So fuck you, OP. Go take your fakes to the Smash 4 threads instead, maybe they won't recognise it.
>Japan still has no fundamental law protecting the livelihood or rights of non-Japanese. A bill for the protection of rights for handicapped and women, which also covers discrimination by race and ethnicity, was defeated in 2003. Debate is continuing within the government and ruling party on whether to resubmit it. Still, a “Human Rights Committee”, entrusted with the duties of hearing and investigating violations of human rights, has engendered great criticism from conservatives on the issue of appointing foreigners as committee members. The government eventually did a volte-face, saying that “only residents who have the right to vote for people in the local assemblies” are allowed, thus limiting appointments to Japanese.
You were saying
Well, it looks like NeoGAF made that image as a joke to see how many people would fall for an image that took parts from an already disproven fake. Considering it was posted here, it looks like someone got fooled.
>implying I was the anon you responded to
Oh no, SJWs have no power in Japan? Thank god, people can actually make games with lesbian main characters without getting shat on for "not doing it right".
Then explain the success of the Atelier and Neptunia series
>And also impliying that nips care about self inserting
They only care about the girls design and if they pander to their fetishes not if they can self insert or not
except people fucking love FeMC and wish she was canon. you can't really go by those stupid japanese popularity lists because they just suck the dick of whatever is popular or current. shit man Kira and Lacus still top popularity charts in Japan for Gundam and they are two of the worst written characters ever.
Atelier and Neptunia are about cute girls doing cute things, that is their primary purpose and what their audience wants. Persona 3 and especially 4 have become part dating sim.
true, self inserting is a more western phenomenon. that's why the vast majority of Japanese games dont allow you to create and design your own character whereas most western games seem to be going that way
Yeah, Persona 5 needs to break the male streak with a female protagonist. Hopefully that will happen.
Since P3 and P4 they audience is basically 50:50 female and male and P5 it's a very awaited game if they make a with a female protag japan won't flip their shit like it would happen here
have you ever actually played a dating sim anon? I know you hear that term get thrown around a lot on here in regards to Persona but the people who say that are idiots who don't know what they are talking about. people who actually like dating sims would find this extremely lacking. Dating sims have a focus on affecting the outcome of the story with a much larger harem of girls to go for. Persona 3 only really had three dateable girls and even in P4 the vast majority of social links are not dating related at all. the games focus on multiple endings and usually have some kind of payoff in regards to what happened. western players who's only experience is Persona think "ooh I guess I like dating sims now" but in reality a Persona fan would be bored to tears with a real dating sim and a dating sim fan would find it far too barebones and lacking much control. believe it or not the two things dont have much overlap in fans at all.
yeah I noticed my mistake right after I typed that but still, five girls out of twenty one or so arcana is still slightly less than a quarter. the vast majority of your time in those games is not spent dating but helping people with all sorts of things. even the dateable girls generally dont tend to resemble actual relationships until late in their link. my point still stands it's not a fucking dating sim
>oh shit atlus actually revealed something about P5
>it's just fanart
Are they ever going to talk about this damn game? I don't even care about Persona, but it's not like Atlus makes anything else now. Maybe this one will actually have good gameplay.
>a japanses company
>delaying a popular game
While here it's not really a big deal in Japan it would be like comiting sudoku
shit i hope it's true anyway
Still probably going to be 3D models. We all know how much they love reusing assets so P5 might kick off SMT/other spinoff games on consoles again.
does anybody else get the suspicion these fake threads are to trick spoilerphobes into leaving /v/ until the game comes out? I know a lot of people claim they are leaving once info starts flowing in but talk is cheap and I question the willpower
Hey, at least it's not Thailand, where they are so xenophobic that they will kill you for being a foreigner.
If you want a white-friendly Asian place to visit then go to Hong Kong.
nah I am sure tons of Persona fans will leave until the release of the game in Japan since you know there is weabs that don't want the game in english so some idiot will post spoilers on /v/
Is everybody ready for Stone Ocean the RPG now that they blatantly copied Diamond Is Unbreakable for Persona 4?
>"do you want emanicpation?"
JoJo 6 Stone Ocean confirmed for Persona 5
What does that have to do with a lesbian protag, though? It was in P3, it was in other games, it's a popular theme in animu. You really, REALLY think there's no chance for a lesbian protag, given it has happened before in the very same series?
That could actually look good, if they changed the models a little bit and add some nice high-res textures, but I'll laugh if we seriously get a PS3 game launching after the PS4 that still uses PS2 models.
Never said it was going to look bad. They just aren't going to put all that time in make tons of new persona when they could just copy paste the ones from the previous games like they always do.
Yeah, Stone Ocean is about a prison for girls with an insane priest ruining all the fun.
Guessing this is absolutely what P5 is going to be.
i meant same demons/personas whatever but with better graphics/textures.
they´ll have to do it soon or later,that way they can use those models for other smt games for ps3 like raidou for example.
The fuck? My oncle runs 2 hostess bar in Thailand I go over there once a year and everybody is nice and friendly.
Maybe because it's a tourist zone, but even locals are cool as fuck
That's just porn, people change their tune when they actually have to live next to and see people who may not fit their definition of "normal".
Also, Japan is going through a population crisis, something that wouldn't do at least gay men any favors.
True Japan isn't very progressive on LGBT issues but Yuri/Yaoi are very popular irregardless, neither do they have puritanical repulsion to same sex romances many westerners may have.
does anyone even wanna play this after 4?i mean i thought they were kidding about the scooby doo jokes but when i played it god dam,3 was such a drastic change since i started on 2 but 4 is a god dam cringe fest
Elizabeth and Aigis were both added after the fact and Ms. Toriumi I don't know what the fuck you are talking about. if you are talking about the teacher you play the MMO with that's not romantic and she's the math teacher with the afro anyways. even if I give you that entire list my initial point still stands that it's well below even half the social links. seriously
>being this autistic over an exact number to the point of including two who were additional
Is there any chance at all that P5 will be on the 360?
I don't want to buy a ps3 for just one game
>if you are talking about the teacher you play the MMO with that's not romantic and she's the math teacher with the afro anyways.
everything about that sentence is wrong nigguh
Someone didn't play correctly
>she's the math teacher with the afro anyways
Or at all, apparently.
You have two choices.
Wait until P5 inevitably gets a PS4 port and stay far away from /v/, youtube, or the internet for that matter to avoid spoliers
Just get the PS3 for cheap and call it a day. Then once you get bored with P5 sell the PS3.
>only the guys are romance
It's over, Persona is now a otome like SMT.
No, she doesn't have an S.Link, but you can still fuck her by doing all of her requests.
You get that scene by talking to her in the teachers office on the very last day, if you have rank 10.
Everyone has one last thing to say to you at the very end of the game if you maxed them out right before
you become a door. The social link pretty much tells you that it's Toriumi and you have to talk to her in the faculty office.
idk how I missed that... though I did max her out pretty early in the game so that would explain things.
Damn I miss persona 3, I really wish I could play it on vita (real persona 3 not that psp dumbed down version)
they might do it since the FEMC was one of the most popular persona characters in japan and it was well received
Thai's are the least aggressive SEA people. Seriously, they are almost entirely incapable of mugging or assaulting.
That being said they'll scam you out of all your money, but at least you can prevent that.
4 attracted more casuals and waifufags. This will ultimately affect P5 because Atlus knows how much of a cash cow P4 was and they want to attract that same audience that ate that shit up.
>implying they would cut out yuri possibilities after they made aigis and elizabeth lesbian in p3p
>Because 4 is casual shit made for waifu fags.
They just continued what they started with 3
>At least 3 had good characters and writing. Only good character in 4 was Kanji.
neither has exceptional writing really.
Can't have a single Persona thread without P2 hipsters, Chie dump or SMT fujoshits.
Can OP be reported for spam?
This shit is just sad.
P2 battle system is unbearably slow even when you turn portraits off and use autobattle, then there's the random encounters so you have to put up with that shit every 5 feet. There's a difference between being difficult and being tedious.
>tfw no 3D
>tfw can't walk around town or school
>tfw no cutscenes
You are talking about 3 or 4? 3 had Strega, the full moon bosses, Ikutsuki betrayal, Ryoji, Shiji's death.
4 was; save someone, we learned nothing! so funneh anime slice of life scene, repeat until Namatame.
Yeah, Persona wound never have gay shit.
Chiefags are definitely the worst, then Naotofags and Aigisfags.
>I'll actually been playing Persona 5 in a year or so
i am sorry now i feel dumb and retarded
Forgive me, but who exactly is this supposed to be? Reverse image search gives nothing.
People are still talking about Persona 3 and 4 to this day, it's a bit hard to comprehend.
>Brand new set of waifus
>Brand new long ass game
I'm really excited, admittedly the wait has been as long as some others though, as I actually only got into Persona a year or 2 ago, Started with 4, then went back and played 3 and 2, liked them all honestly.
No I really do.
Yukari is my waifu, but Elizabeth and Mitsuru are pretty close behind her.
Bitch, I know it.
Don't you doubt my love of the Yuca-tan, I had a dream I was her fucking my real self, shit was amazing.
Yeah, that's probably accurate. I want to say Risefans are the worst, but that's only because I don't like Rise herself, her fans are actually pretty decent. Chiefags are as vocal as Risefags, but they are much more insistent that their girl is a million times better than all others.
Chiefags < Risefags < Aifags <Yukikofags < Naotofags < Mariefags < Margaretfags
Kanji is all man. Yosuke was 100x gayer than Kanji liking dudes.
I like Chie the most out of the Persona 4 girls honestly, but I don't care if people have other tastes.
Besides Naotofags, I really don't get Naotofags.
>being in a Persona thread and getting mad when someone spoils something
And neither is yours, complaining about a girl in a video game is not relavent to the topic, nor the video games in general. At least people posting a girl that are FROM the video games is better.
Make sure you don't kill Ryoji
Minato dies at the end
Junpei falls in love with Chidori after she sacrifices her life to heal his gun shot wound.
Ken comes back the to SEES like nothing ever happened.
Every single Persona related thread will end in discussion of every game, you seriously can't come here and not expect discussion about 3 and 4. Especially about a game that has no info yet.
Nice projections m8, but your shitposting is the real new here. It's just some advice, newfriend.
I'm pretty god damn sure that SMT4 was always planned as a 3DS exclusive. Besides, SMT4 panders to S/MT nostalgiafags and those games were mostly on Nintendo consoles as well.
lel Tatsuya a shit i bet he must love sucking philemons dick in the other side
>yfw Persona5 makes a return to first-person dungeon crawling
>Mainline SMT is not suffering because of otaku pandering
>SMT4 was always planned as a 3DS exclusive.
SMT3 came out in 2003. Why would they just put SMT4 on hold until a console with terrible hardware they didn't know would come out came out?
>SMT not suffering because of nostalgia fags and fujo pandering.
>ignoring how a Social Justice women's group got blown the fuck out by the jap govt
>LGBT is social justice and would not fair any better
That piece of information was perfectly in context.
You're implying that SMT4 has been in development right after SMT3 was released, when we don't know that. There's nothing to suggest that SMT4 was in development before the 3DS was announced, so saying that it was put on hold is stupid.
8 months tops. Probably a lot less. My guess is that SMT4 and Persona Q's success will lead them to expedite the release here but mark the price up by including some worthless extras.
>Everyone masturbates over qt grill in trailer
>Everyone waifus her
>People defend her before the game is even released
>Finish her S-Link
>It turns out she's a trap
And these are Personafags, so nothing changes.
My money is ready
Day one purchase
So fucking hype
>Yosuke is gay as fuck
>still goes WOAH BRO DONT TOUCH MY PENIS whenever kanji gets close to him
Yosuke is retarded, I hope the main Bro character in 5 isnt as shitty
For every person that yells SLUT there's a Risefag there to respond that she isn't.
You'd barely know it. The occasional Mariefag pops out to troll, but then quickly goes back into hiding.
Ikutsuki is evil.
>play as girl
>choose your husbando
Reminder to quit 4chan as soon as P5 comes out in Japan.
yea i did the same
I'm gonna leave when it comes out in nipland and come back when I've beat it
i'm in the UK so depending on how long it takes to get a localisation I may have to import from murrika
How did no rumors of Adachi being an absolute cunt not spread? He doesn't seem like the kind of person that's good at hiding it.
I'm surprised he didn't end up raping Nanako while Dojima was passed out.
I'm going to do the same thing, last about 2 weeks and then randomly browse 4chan one day when I'm bored, completely forgetting that P5 is out and the very first thread I see will be "So-and-so dies!"
>spaghetti prone magician
that shit always gets me
>Start playing old game
>See someone mention X dies
>Whatever, I don't even know who X is, I'll forget it by the time I even meet him
>Meet character X weeks later
>Single thought comes to mind
>X dies X dies X dies X dies X dies
>That's all I can think about until he dies
they were already making the game but then decided to just say fuck it and not port over the game to ps3 because at the time ps3 was still backwards compatible
hell Devil Summoner 2 came out in the states in 2009. just what the hell
it really sucks that ps4 isn't backwards compatible. i want to get p5 but no ps3 and seems pointless to get a last gen system at this point
>seems pointless to get a last gen system at this point
Not really. You can get a ps3 really cheap these days. I had a choice between a ps3 and a ps4. And I bought the PS3. It's never too late to buy any console.
Now is the BEST time to get a last gen system. When it's cheaper and you can still get all the games.
It's only bad if you prefer playing multiplayer or something. I really couldn't give a damn about multiplayer console games.
>mfw I got a PS3 for free a month back
Disk drive is borked but I could replace that, came with a 300gb hdd so I'm just going to download P5 off of PSN.
>Every time X appears all I can think of is "X dies"
>Get angry every time X appears because of the spoiler
>Start to hate X as a result of getting angry every time he appears
>When X finally dies I'm happy
