What are the chances of Blue Jesus ever returning?
He's going to return in P4AU. He may not be brought back to life permanently, nor may it even be "him", or it could even be "his soul is now finally at peace", but he's going to be in the fucking game.
You can screencap this shit, and in a month or so (I forgot when it's out in Japan) I'll be proven right. They're not having the Persona 3 movies for nothing.
More likely than I'd like it to be. Keep him dead, don't make 2 whole fucking games about him sacrificing himself and everyone trying to cope with his death and then bring him back just because fans like him.

Why should I screencap something that everyone already said once?
But yeah, they will do something with him, maybe even just let his friends visit him, Elizabeths story arch of trying to save him has to go somewhere after all
They're not having the bullshit S.E.E.S reunion for nothing. I mean, is Sho really that big of a threat that Mitsuru decides that she needs a shota, an actress, a dog, and DA MAN, instead of all of the Kirijo Group's funding/resources and shit?
because just as they were there for his death, they'll fucking witness his reincarnation
This image could actually make sense. Maybe Elizabeth succeeded and is transferring his soul to her body, therefore she becomes able to use Thanatos.
This seems to be the consensus most people agree on, it does take away from P3s ending but it would at least be done in a tasteful manner, having to replace Igor and stuff
> MC in Elizabeth's body
Can't MC go in Marie's body? Then Marie would have 10/10 body and an actually interesting personality.
It would only be tasteful if none of SEES knew it had happened, and the only way we know about it is because in Persona 5, the protagonist meets him and we as an audience go "IT'S FUCKING MC" but the protagonist has no idea who he is and can't tell SEES about it.
Maybe it's implied Margaret and Igor are still Yu's velvet room attendants, which would explain why Yu doesn't know either.
They won't do that, I swear they wont
She hates the velvet room and her entire point was that she wanted to go out into the world and make memories with her friends
>tfw Persona 2 characters will never come back
Basically zero, presuming the games stay set in the present. You can't enact sweeping change on all of humanity so quickly. Because the only way he'll be free is if nobody on the planet ever has depressive/suicidal thoughts and feeling anymore.
Take a game set a few hundred or thousand years in the future, however, and maybe that'll give Elizabeth the time to accomplish that goal and make Nyx cease to exist.
And like every other character she'll go through a nice little phase like that and then learn to accept that the Velvet Room is the place she belongs.
I still don't even fucking GET the point of Marie being added to Golden. I know her thing was "becoming your true self" and getting memories and not worrying about the past, and evidently given the new epilogue she's human or at least away from the Velvet Room, but literally, what was the FUCKING POINT OF MARIE?
She's Izanami, or part of her, but literally NOBODY ASKED FOR MORE INFO ON IZANAMI, and if they fucking wanted an Izanami social link, they wanted a fucking Izanami social link
goddamn marie gets me so fucking pissed off i swear to god
Man, imagining Him and Elizabeth hanging out in that room for eternity makes me happy
Is a fact he'll return in story mode
I want to believe he'll be playable
WHERE IS PERSONA 5 ATLUS!!!!???? WHERE IS IT?????
YOU SAID THERE WOULD BE A 5!!!!!!!!!!!!!
>gets his shit stomped in by elizabeth

Persona 5 takes place in that new world.
I hope they don't bring him back. It would ruin the ending.
>>After annihilating Yu, He says "Fuck you" and disappears
>Elizabeth's plan was to replace Minato with Yu all this time
>becomes P4U2's main villain
FES is the best way to experience P3. It has buttloads of extra content and if you have a PS3, it looks great on a HDTV.
Portable is only if you want to play as FemMC as the game is mostly a downgrade. I recommend portable only after you beat FES and want more.
I want him back. Not because "muh fanboying over P3" but it just a really sad story, even back in original P4 they hinted there's probably a way to bring him back. That said, I do think that what many people are saying(have him the boss of Velvet room) is the best option considering Minato(or whatever his official name is) has God-tier powers. Have him come back in P4AU, join the fight and then when all is done he says his goodbye because he has work to do.
And then when P5 comes out he greets us, while sitting on a throne shaped like Messiah's back, with Thanatos' coffins on one side making him look like Messiah Persona himself. Maybe add Orpheus' instrument on the other side
Holiday 2014, dumbass.
P3 and P4 didn't get any info dropped until a couple months before their releases. We probably won't see anything at TGS, because that's still too early.
This is normal.
If you wanna fug Elizabeth, you're in luck, you horn dog you
You just have to do her requests, but they're spaced out between certain dates so be sure to check back in frequently
I have the shittiest stats im at the bottom in evrry single one, do i need a special requirement to fugg her?
Uuuuh i guess the older girl in the dorm,the one that appaers in arena but she only wants brainy dicks
Playing P4G again as Feathermen!
Trying to max all S.Links this time around on my second go. Doesn't look like I'm going to make it. Still need to form bonds with that old lady and Saki's brother.
He can only be free when humanity stops giving into despair and their calls for death cease. Until then Erberus will keep trying to get to Nyx. And there is darkness in every heart. For MC to return Narly has to lose and Phil must win
One thing I like in P4 is that you can friendzone girls.
P3 pisses me off when it's trying to make me feel guilty for getting Mitsuru ranks after maxing Fuuka. Stopping the Fall is more important than monogamy. I don't even like these bitches anyway.
>dat left hand
how does that even happen?
FES is shit compared to P3P and P4G
>No quick navigation
>Allies constantly getting tired
>Cant control party members
>Cant manually equip party members from the menu
Among many other things
The only flaw is no cutscenes.
PS2 emulation is easy as cake
Actually control your character on the overworld. Cutscenes?
Honestly not being able to control your other characters and the lack of quick moving killed FES for me after starting with P3P for some reason
>Allies constantly getting tired
This was a good thing in P3 that didn't carry over to P4.
Infinitely grinding because fuck you video games or not having to manage your party as well was shit in P4.
>No The Answer
>inb4 The Answer is shit
It's half decent and expands on plot elements that are referenced in other games, also pretty decent characterization for the P3 cast.
P3P lets you control your party members but it makes the game really easy, and P3 wasn't exactly hard on it's own either.
Quick navigation is okay I guess, walking to other areas wasn't mind numbingly boring or anything since they were all small anyway. Walking about the city is actually pretty cool too and is a hell of a lot better than the VN interface.
P3P is pretty much the exact same game with added gameplay features to make you do actions you probably would have done anyway along with less story.
Both are fine versions but I'd recommend FES to anyone who has a PS2 or can emulate it.
So what do you guys think the Red stands for in Persona 5? Blue represents the moon. Melancholy, sadness, etc. in P3.
P4 is yellow, representing the sun or the truth they are trying to find in the cloudy rainy days.
Is red blood?
> Minato sacrifices himself save humanity from killing itself via the embodiment of death.
> Yu fucks around with friends at the beach and stops his persona's wife from turning a small town into shadows.
sounds about right.
He'll be in as the (non playable) final boss of story mode. BBCP showed that Arcsys are now willing to include final bosses in their story modes. There'll be some shit with Nyarly either taking over his body or making a copy of him because he's the ultimate vessel or some shit, regardless he'll be the final boss and he'll have Messiah. And SHOnic The Edgehog will die at the end after seeing the error of his ways.
Screencap this, I'm right.
>P5 begins, MC's eyes slowly open
>Vision is blurred at first, but as it focuses you see it

tfw it will never ever be
Holy fuck man. Sometimes you're just supposed to figure these things out for yourself. Just use this since you sound like an annoying casual anyway, http://lmgtfy.com/?q=persona+3+portable
Here he is.
Let the buttblastedness begin.
Sorry that nobody likes your old-and-busted favourite RPG any more, grandpa. You'll just have to put it back on the shelf next to your blues records and mono-TV.
If it threatened humanity, SEES and the shadow ops would have just dealt with it.
Considering SEES is canonically way more powerful than IT, they'd probably have beaten Izanami pretty easily.
>Huge bosses are gang leaders trying to impose their rule with backup from the teachers
That's assuming that they could've even gotten to Izanami. Even though they're way better than the IT, if she went to the TV world or where ever, there would be no fucking way that the Shadow Ops could know about that. They could probably keep a small area safe, but that's about it.
Yet yet you're still here instead of making an SMT thread, afriad it will get no responses, is that it? Sorry man but there's a reason SMT is on it's deathbed and Persona is getting a further 3 games in the space of a year or two.
that doesnt mean shit
call of duty keeps getting games that doesnt mean it is good
stop being a casual and play real smt games
i bet you even play golden in easy mode
haha go be a casual somewhere else
Persona 5 is a Real Time Strategy game. Atlus announces that mainline SMT is their RPG series, and the Persona series will be where they experiment with other genres (thus explaining the P4 fighter and Rhythm game).
Why are you so buttblasted that literally fucking Pokemon is better than SMT? You can enjoy camel shit all you want, but don't try to pass it off as the second coming of Jesus Christ.
EPP is the PSP remake of EP that was only released in Nippon retard. and there is no sign of a fan translation or a NA port.
Man, some people, amirite?
>Shit Megami Tardsei will never, ever, EVER sell a system
stay mad memelords
They cleaned up the battle system like in ISP, remixed soundtrack, and added an epilogue that explained why the demons became shadows. Really want to play the remake since I played ISP, but had to settle for inferior OG version of EP
Yeah it's not like they let you choose what soundtrack you can listen to or anything.
I think you're the real fag here, the Persona fanbase doesn't want you and the SMT fanbase definitely doesn't either.
How does it feel to be a fan of literally one of the worst franchises in videogame history?
probably feels bad huh memelord?
I remember all the rage in the chat when the announcements we got were Q and DAN. Teddie going full retard with KUMAKUMAKUMAKUMA for minutes straight didn't help either.
Fucking Atlus, master rusemen.
>Mitsuru decides that she needs a shota, an actress, a dog, and DA MAN, instead of all of the Kirijo Group's funding/resources and shit?
what the fuck
they fought nyx itself and have experience in dealing with shadows, they're capable enough
>that fucking old lady who was blocking the PQ trailer
Nah nigga, that's not what I'm saying
I fully recognize their capabilities, but either Atlus is really downplaying Sho at the moment, meaning he's more of a threat than he seems, or else the ME is prominent from the get go of the story
what did you just say you fagget
>kanjifags are this delusional
Ok hes fucking Teddie while Rise watch.
>mfw I hit a new PR while lifting
>mfw I was thinking about Marie saying she wanted to be with me forever and ever and confessing her love for me
What is happening to me.
Whoever you were talking to was retarded
It's darker and takes place in a city so I guess that probably means edgy to you. You're still going to go to hot springs and have social links with Cute Grill with emotioal problems #3958 so I wouldn't say it's too different at all.
The whole gun to your head to summon your Persona thing is kinda fucking stupid, but that's about it.
HS rips of P4GA usually come out around 19:00 UTC which is basically two hours after the episode airs.
I want P3MC in the velvet room in P5 just to have Akira Ishida's lovely voice guide me on my journey.
I-I mean, Atlus would include dual audio finally, r-right?
>my ACTUAL face when I realized the other day that Elizabeth's costume is based on a design from the movie The Fifth Element
it must have been the gun to the head part like this guy said >>256669097
pretty sure that's the edgy that people refer to, but I don't know shit. Anywho, gonna pick up p3p on psn since it's like $5 right now.
I'd emulate it but my computer is slowly turning into a toaster and doesn't emulate well regardless of what's being emulated.
>I want P3MC in the velvet room in P5 just to have Akira Ishida's lovely voice guide me on my journey.
Nigga what? I emulated P3 on my Q6600 and 8800GT years ago. Emulation improved a lot since then so it should be doable unless you really have a shit tier PC.
FES is just better, overall, especially for the first playthrough
>YFW MC & Mitsuru is married in real life in the dubbed version.
iunno what to say man, my pc is wearing down. not too sure what needs to be replaced but I'm guessing that the shit that I have to put up with is because ether a failing hard drive or something. That and even if I get some minor slow down or stutters on a game that hardly involves interaction, well that just pisses me off.
Are you new or something? Your posts are really tryhard, I'm sure you'll adjust eventually though. Also Ikutsuki is a villain and is tricking you all.
Guy who tells the shitty jokes in your dorm, teacher like dude. When you kill all those Shadows on full moons it's actually a bad thing and some god dude awakens and is going to kill everyone.
Ah so hes the bad guy? Is there a way i can not help him?
Would this toaster somehow be capable of emulating PS2?
I did my first playthrough on P3P. Do you have to complete The Journey to unlock The Answer?
So who do you think would win:
Minato or the Lightning Returns version of Lightning?
Yeah you need to do most of the Elizabeth requests(I think it's at least 40 of them) and have completed a social link with at least 2 of the main characters, that puts you on the good ending route. I'd also reccomend leveling up Ken he's really useful for that part of the game but using whoever you want is fine too.
>unlocked after completing Elizabeth's story mode
>wears a suit like Igor
>uses Thanatos, Orpheus Telos, and Messiah
>for whatever reason he stays in the velvet room with Liz and Margaret
>appears in P5 to replace Igor
Playing P3FES right now, coming up on the full moon after you get Fuuka. Everybody is a boring plank of wood except Junpei and Yukari to a degree and it sucks. I have no idea why people like Akihiko.
You get him later on in the story. Not that you'll get that far away, you seem pretty shit at video games asking all these questions n shit. Didn't someone link you to a guide? Just use that or something.
Because he's been waiting for this.
Thats just plain rude i just asked thing because is my first persona game jeez yall niggas have to know that everyone you know doesnt go to other peoples minds
>Spoiling the game for yourself
>Asking useless questions like "guys where is X?"
You may as well just use a guide if you want your hand holded the entire way through the game. Not shitting on you or anything, I just think you'll enjoy it a lot more that way when things get a bit too complex for you.
›You will never fuck Laura Bailey cosplaying as Rise.
Its not useless shit the deadline is tomorrow
Ring a ding baby
>you will never fuck Michelle Ruff cosplaying as Yukari
I don't wanna live like this
Naoto is pure.
>someone discovers her secret
>sex in exchange for silence
>rinse and repeat
I like boyish girls more.
Naoto has severe autism. no way has she ever fugged anybody
Yukiko seems reserved enough but in the end shes really pretty and all the guys are competeing for her so i dont know
rest are sluts
It's just an elaborate jojo reference.
You know, now that I think of it - how the fuck did he suddenly know "well, yeah, gotta float up there, beat up an egg, and then turn into a door to save mankind"? It felt kinda surreal.
MC became a door and is protecting the universe and his friends,while Tatsuya is in the other side being raped for all eternity by Nyarly.I don't know if can call that succeed
Yeah, something about needing to be reminded about the threat of death and being stressed out to summon a Persona feels pretty damn stupid considering they very well know it's essentially a toy gun.
yeah its edgy but its not reason to hate the game. we all have an edgy 14 year old buried deep inside of us, after all
I agree, it's pretty dumb. As a reference it's ok but since it's sort of the bread and butter of P3's fighting system, it's pretty fuckin dumb. Glad P4 just went with meh card smashing instead of Sudoku knife gut persona summoning.
What's the relation between Shin Megami Tensei and Persona? I always see them mentioned together, are they like offshoots of each other or are they in the same universe or what? I've never played a persona game, but I have played SMT4 and was just wondering.
Well, they did pretty much say later on that Evokers have a Plume of Dusk inside them, so using a tool to summon their Persona is pretty much alright. Still, them being guns is pretty stupid and impractical. I mean fuck, Koromaru's Evoker is probably the most practical.
Back in the day Atlus made this game called SMT: if... It was a what if scenario where a school gets sucked into the makai instead of all the demons coming outside after Thorman dropped all the freedom of murrika on Japan.
SMT: if... kicked off the purse owner franchise.
Most (all?) of Atlus' JRPGs basically are the Megami Tensei franchise. They have similar themes and shit with all the demons and stuff.
Shin Megami Tensei is one subcategory in that franchise (referred to as the mainline games). These consist of SMT1, 2, 3 (Nocturne), 4 and SJ.
Persona, for example, is another subcategory of the Megami Tensei franchise.
People do get confused though, and that's because Atlus USA are fucking retarded. They pretty much decided that they should just add Shin Megami Tensei to the game's titles for brand recognition, while they have nothing to do with that series of games. Persona is just fucking Persona, same with Devil Summoner and Digital Devil Saga.
I'm a dirty what anon? A dirty what? A
Ikutsuki is a traitor and kills Mitsuru's dad
Ryouji is the Death shadow/the mysterious boy
Aigis had to seal Death inside you when you were a child
MC dies in the end
Shinjiro gets shot dead by Revolver Jesus
MC is a loser because he didn't live by Maya's life slogan.
There isn't a single problem in the persona universe that can't be solved by Let's Positive Thinking. In fact all of Persona 3 can be solved with this.
This is why Maya got the universe named after her. This is why Pierced Ear is a baller trippin across digital and realest worlds. This is why Protag seduces a goddess with funky fresh disco dancing.
MC is a door because his friends were shit and he's apathetic.
And instead of using it's infinite potential, he turned himself into a door. Awesome.
Meanwhile the world was in danger again, two years later in P4, is now with P4U2 and will be again with P4D.
Minako and death-kun.
A lot of good that card did him. Now a robot girl has to solve everything and learn how to think positive in a backwater town where Nyarlathotep might have just shown up again.
Good going MC. You undid all the good that Maya and company did and unleashed the creeping chaos back on the world. Good job. We should just call Persona 3 Let's Negative Thinking because that's all MC could do.
Ikutsuki is the punmeister in the suit and glasses.
Mitsuru is the rich girl with red hair.
Aigis is a robot girl introduced later.
Shinjiro is white haired boxer man's friend, also introduced later.
The mysterious boy is the weird ghost kid in the pajamas. He disappears after a while and reappears a while later as Ryouji.
If you're too retarded to even know their names you should probably just stop playing.
why are you here if you didnt play the game?
anyway hes death incarnate and because he existed a god will come to smite all the humans. then the cute guy with the blue hair seals away the god
Minako is love.
i want naoto to tip her hat at me
where the fuck did Ryoji sleep at night? where did he "spawn" in the overworld? How did he get enrolled into a school after 1 day of being on planet earth? none of that shit makes sense
Ryoji is Pharos, he probably slept inside MC since he's been inside him the whole time.
He's a supernatural being I'm sure there was
some mind control going on.
>they should stop making the MCs in a fucking JRPG all special
I want Naoto to
dress up asKino.
look at this greasy fucking seat sniffer.
all the fanart of him is Bishounen as fuck but the render looks like hes the scum of the earth. legs longer than a Louisa May Alcott novel for fucks sake
how the fuck this guy ever got any of the SEES girls looking like that is beyond me.
hes so cool
>Has 6 persona cards that can't break (can still break the persona) but needs to recharge after a persona use ad if the card was broken
>Whenever you use a persona attack doing a command while another persona is out will cause Once More allowing him to chain persona attacks
>supers are fusion moves and cost 2 cards and can't be chained if one of the needed persona's are already out.
>Instant kill is Armageddon that shows a seeable crater from space
>ugh that's even worse. I bet he stare rapes womyn
i never realized that the reason i didnt like fuuka was her annoying dub voice until i watched the movie
of course Junpei, yukari and mitsuru were insufferable in japanese. no way would i ever play the undub
The animation in P4G is better, but it's rushed as hell, and goes overboard where it shouldn't. First episode Yu's Persona slaughters an ungodly swarm of shadows like that starting Persona was special or powerful at that point. It was annoying.
>The animation in P4G is better, but it's rushed as hell, and goes overboard where it shouldn't. First episode Yu's Persona slaughters an ungodly swarm of shadows like that starting Persona was special or powerful at that point. It was annoying.
That's cause the Golden Anime is basically New Game + for Narukami.
so give you one persona and take away strategics with multiple demons that the smt/persona series is known for? sounds good now all we need to do is lower the difficulty immensely to compensate!
well I mean they are setting everything up for his return a tartarus V2, and a dark hour v2 he might get back but it won't be forever and will unlocked as a fight able character when you finish story mode
I never liked her much, but what I do I know.
I can buy that. I really can. I actually liked it at first, before he summoned his Persona, because he was taking a different personality route. It was sort of funny actually. But it still felt rushed, even without the Persona thing annoying me.
It's okay, but it's only good for the expanded story elements you can just watch on YouTube. The Answer isn't even worth replaying once you've seen it once.
>P3P lets you control your party members but it makes the game really easy
Persona 3 isn't hard anyway, and it's not like taking away control makes the game more difficult in any meaningful way. It doesn't turn the game into Nocturne and add more depth to the dungeons or combat, the game is better with added control.
P4GA is shoehorning her into all of the Golden events, even the ones she wasn't in (i.e. most of them) like the school band, beach trip, miracle quiz etc. >>256653704 sums it up pretty accurately.
And it sucks because I wanted to see an Adachi social link and maybe even an accomplice ending.
It really is inevitable, the blue haired messiah will eventually return in some form.
Hopefully they can do it with some style so it doesn't just end up with him just appearing P5 or some shit like that.
I opt not to control the characters even in P3. I've got to be honest, I like just controlling the MC/FeMC. The other party members having their own A.I. control makes them more characters for me, somehow, even if their A.I. can be pants on head at times.
Not to mention the game is balanced and designed around this fact and without it you lose an entire strategic portion of the gameplay and it just becomes Persona 4 2.0: Somehow even fucking simpler and easier addition.
FES is how the game is meant to be played, simple as that.
And he already had some pretty great potential in the first place.
The Movie implies that he'd been experiencing the dark hour every night since he was 6, which I would think would have strengthened him to it since he's had to endure it for so long.
Couple that with the fact that Persona-user's power (at least in P3) is reliant on them reaching that stage of calm acceptance before death, and the movie makes it quite clear that P3 does not give a fuck about death, so he's in that state at all times.
Then you've got the wildcard on top of that, then you've got the fact that Death was inside him for 10 years, and all those factors combine to give him the potential to be OP as fuck
Margaret seems to imply that Yu hasn't reached his full potential by the end of Persona 4, so it's possible that Yu might be able to reach those levels of power... I bet Elizabeth would be very interested in that.
>playing the Answer
>bring yukari because she has full party heals, she even specifially says so
>she only uses them if everyone is dying
>this causes endless rage/death
>have to be over-leveled for every boss until i get mediarama
>get the satisfaction of kicking her out to the curb for Ken
Let's be honest, that sort of behavior makes perfect sense for Yukari. She was a dumb bitch in the opening game, remained a dumb bitch throughout the game and finished the game as a dumb bitch.
Fuuka, Mitsuru, Aegis and Elizabeth are all superior.
>heal before bossfights with the teleporter
>spam mediarama with my massive well of SP
>let retards chip away at the bosses health
>win the gaym
P3 was easy
until the Nyx fight when my teammates began hurling themselves into the face of death and i had to put them all on heal and win by myself and they still sometimes would
Why does it seem like most of the personas you can fuse and get from shuffle time are more focused on status ailments or physical attacks.
The only persona i fused around my level with an elemental attack was Odin
>entire strategic portion
It's really not that strategic and it really isn't as big of a change people make it out to be.
P3P would be the definitive version if not for cutscenes and The Answer. As it is, it's just the slightly better, but optional version.
