>>324296269 Everything that hasn't come out of Atlus' mouth is just pure speculation. It's been confirmed in both interviews and on they're twitter when Morgana took over that they're would be more members.
>>324296660 They probably just are the same characters from another universe. The whole game is themed exactly like P2. Maybe, just MAYBE, the protagonist will end alone and with no memories nor love :^(
They need two more party members so that you can have a completely unique party with Yusuke that doesn't include the first three. He's just an awkward fifth wheel otherwise. I don't see much more than that, though. The party feels really tight-knit.
Why aren't they marketing this game in the U.S. at all? PQ got more marketing than this game. Fucking #FE is getting more marketing. There still hasn't been a single English trailer and hasn't been mentioned a single time at E3/Gamescom/PSX or any convention besides TGS.
I feel like this series could be popular in the west if anyone outside of weebs knew it existed
>>324293216 I doubt it, but I wouldn't care either way. They should have sticked with 4 and not reveal Yusuke anyway. Persona 4 really dropped the ball there by showing all party members in the fucking intro.
>>324297103 Dude, they both come on the same type of bluray disc. No reason to leave it out. The other assets in both versions are possibly the same too, they could've just made the engine support both architectures and turned down the output resolution and made some minor tweaks considering how stylized the art direction is. That said, it would be very surprising if they put in dual audio.
>>324293892 >Yusuke is an honor student in an art course at the Kosei Public High School. Orphaned at a young age, he was found to have artistic talents and he is currently a live-in disciple of a famous Japanese painter by the name of Madarame.
ugh he sounds like he is going to be the worst. Can't wait for his MUH PARENTS MUH ART social link
>>324297729 that's probably the most true usually i don't give a fuck about spoilers but with persona 4 it was like "okay i know how it ends anyways, i don't give a fuck about this last ten hours of grinding"
>>324296816 Watching that last P5 trailer makes the MC seem like a bit of a loner. The P2 vibes kinda come from the whole mask theme, the red motiff (though that's more of a Persona 2 psp thing,) and the MC's attitude. Not to mention that real demons in P5 could mean that Philemon and Nyarly could be returning, which could make P5 a legitimate continuation of P2 and P1. It'd be grear to see devil summoners return.
Shit that makes the MC seem like a loner: >Walks around the city alone >spends time in batting cages alone >seems to keep to himself while with his friends >practices Jeet Kune Do by himself
He'll probably realize that friends are important, but I hope he also realizes that he shouldn't be over reliant on them (unlike what's portrayed in adaptations of P4 and P3.)
>>324297357 >I put 1000.something hours into persona 3 FES 1,000 hours into a fully single player game is fucking insane. Christ, I don't think I could even stomach a 3rd play-through of either P3 and P4.
>>324297357 How do you even spend 1000 hours on either 3 or 4? I can't even justify replaying either to do the small content changes on second playthroughs.
>>324297367 Because it's not really being marketed in Japan yet, do Atlus' hands are tied in a lot of ways, and if they don't have voices recorded yet or some playable build with text inserted, they really can't release trailer 3 in English, either. PQ's marketing didn't even really pick up in the US until about two months before release.
>>324297614 You're right. There is no incentive, other than to help push the PS4 version, which Sony might encourage doing. But if nothing else, I could see it happening with P5. Assuming the dual audio poll Atlus did a while back came out favorable, it'd be the first game that hadn't entered serious English production before the poll was made. At least, I hope so, considering they got enough results in just four hours.
They should let you designate specific characters as the navigator, and have them learn navigator specific skills the more they do it. Like passive potential buffs or benefits they could give the rest of the party during combat, or treasure locators and other field related abilities
But I guess then they'd have to record navigator dialog for every character so
>>324298554 I mean, I can get some other games with hella modding capability or something. But Persona is a game you play once for the story, maybe again to get all the S.Links up, and maybe again if you're playing P4G and are an achievement whore. That would be, at most, maybe 400 hours. 1000 is pretty fucking insane.
>>324298968 They haven't, so like I said, with the response being so overwhelming, I hope it was in DA's favor. Atlus USA's pre-order and first-print bonuses have been junk lately, anyway, so I'd be perfectly okay with axing them in favor of focusing on actually good collector's editions.
>>324295103 Except for a few characters P3 have worse character development, doesn't really help that the males don't have any proper S-links.
>>324293216 There will be more characters, in trailer 3 you can clearly hear another female voice in the beginning that sounds neither like Morgana or Ann, you can also see a girl running down the pyramid along with the other party members.
>>324298761 Thieves always have a support member, monitoring the situation for their heists, to inform them of anything they need to know and if anything changes. It is very likely they will have a navigator of some sort.
>>324299426 >the twink Yosuke keeps in his closet >>324299450 They do, yes. This is one game where having an outside participant would actually be justified by the plot instead of grafted on for arbitrary reasons. I just find the running battle commentary annoying. At least they offered options to tone them down.
>>324300005 In 2016, we plan to safely release one of our biggest games to date, Persona 5. When the game was delayed, we stated that we were going to do various finetuning to the game to ensure it was a quality product. However, I feel we’re almost at that point now. Please look forward to the next Persona 5 update soon! =Hashino I think we'll be alright. I hope.
>>324300085 >>324300380 I think it looks like they're going for a mix. The end of the latest trailer showed shit will at least get pretty serious, but a lot of the environments and character designs look pretty light hearted.
>>324299450 Why is Bentley such a bro? >Sly 1: Gets over his fears of danger to help Sly, and provides some great foil moments to him >Sly 2: Total badass bro, comes up with excellent plans, loves justice and honor, backs up his friends, gets his ass in gear once his friends are in danger, gets crippled but is like "lol worth it" >Sly 3: Badass as hell. Turned his disability into his greatest weapon. Competes with a genius more intelligent than him and yet STILL beats him, protects his friends valiantly and gets mad mouse pussy
Having more party members than you can use at the same time (be it via switching when someone dies,everyone fighting together or something else) is always a negative for me, specially if the ones left out don't get exp. If they keep the same system as the other Personas, 4 party members and a navigator for the whole game is more than enough.
>>324301054 Fuck, now I'm hyped. Just realized that Persona is going Sly with 5. You play a gentleman thief backed up by your team of bros performing heists, gonna be fucking awesome. I wonder how the heists will work, if it will be like P3 with something akin to Tartarus(I hope not) or if each heist will have it's own dungeon, kinda like P4(hopefully). The dungeon design looks much better than both P3 and P4 with traps and platforming. It also looks like there's some kind of "stealth" system involved where you can sneak past the bad guys.
>>324300997 >implying Izanami added anything more to the plot then just being the obligatory deity.
Will we ever have another Persona where the big bad makes themselves known as a credible threat during the main parts of the game instead of just popping up at the end. I swear P1 is the only game that did this.
>Tales of Graces reveal trailer >"do you think that Asbel will be the only playable character?" >Tales of Xillia reveal trailer >"do you think that Jude and Milla will be the only playable characters?" >we already know that there is a fuckhuge list of AAA list voice actors confirmed for P5. You can even see another female character running with the party in the latest trailer >"do you think these five will be the only playable characters?" Hitler please come back. We need you. Why do these people exist.
>>324301584 Well, the guy I was replying to is wrong about there being no real gravitas to the threat in P4, since Izanami wanted to merge this world with the tv world, turning everyone into shadows. You are right in what you saying however that the big bad just pops up during the ending, both P3 and P4 suffers from this. I also hope they go in a different direction in 5.
>>324301472 I'm guessing the stealth is now the new sneak attack system- either the dungeons are open-ish, like you need to complete objectives before you can kill the boss, or they're linear. I hope it's the former, as this means that sneaking around is going to be necessary. I want the enemies to be fairly tough so that sneaking and taking them out is always the best option, which will make dungeon traversal much more entertaining.
>>324296660 They look like they have different personalities although both are "cool guys", Tatsuya was the quiet delinquent nobody messes with while P5 protag seems to a show-off when he's using the mask and Clark Kent went he isn't.
>P3 was saving the whole goddamn world, P4 was just stopping a local murderer in a small town.
But that's the best part and one of the things that made it stand out in the slew of RPG's. They should have gotten rid of the whole Izanami plot altogether and make Adachi a more independent villain. Or at the very least, make her into a BOB-like force, than your typical final boss.
>>324302473 That's the thing. They culd have ended P4 with Adachi and Ameno-Sagiri and it would have worked. Ameno was the one that created the fog and the TV World and Adachi used it to his advantage (literally the Joker and Nyarly dynamic from P2), but they didn't, they shoehorned in Izanami for really no reason. She is almost Necron tier.
>>324303047 Either way I just don't understand what went into the writing in this one. Atleast in P3 they gave Nyx a little foreshadowing. With Izanami she just exists outside of the plot and doesn't really push it forward. Hell when you do meet her the plot is actually done. Adachi/Ameno-Sagiri is where P4 should have ended because it's where the story ends.
>>324296603 Not much Perhaps 720 on the PS3 and 1080p on the PS4 whether both will be 60fps remains to be seen. So far we know the PS4 is running at unlocked 60fps Also the PS4 might come with AAx4 while the PS3 will be AAx2 like Catherine.
>>324303708 >your first persona is a mythical figure that is always associated with another mythical figure you haven't met yet >professor plot literally tells you their story if you weren't already aware Izanagi's wife is somewhat important
Come on. She's not THAT bad. She was shown in the first 5 minutes of the game and you could have figured there was something off about the gas attendant. Necron literally comes out of nowhere.
Still, I dislike Izanagi more. Necron was just one boss, but Izanami has a whole fucking dungeon + additional days. She wasn't so much bad for the story, as she was for the structure of the game. By the time you're done with her, Adachi is a distant memory despite being the guy you were looking for entire game. They really had a cool idea with Adachi being the failed reflection of Protag, but that didn't really go anywhere.
>>324304305 They mentioned there won't really be a main antagonist. The story looks like it'll be the protagonists doing what they think is right, then probably fucking up somewhere and having to fix it.
>>324302909 >they shoehorned in Izanami for really no reason
She's the one who gave Adachi and the Protagonist the ability to enter the TV in the first place, she's integral to the whole story. Even if you were wrap the story up with Amano-Sagiri it would just make it anti-climatic as hell. The way the true ending is set up is that you're at end of the game but you know that there is still one loose end untied, it's a mystery and you're being urged to use SOME part of your brain.
>>324304305 Hard to say. Thematically they seem to be a group of delinquents who want to actively be criminals and break into the scene with high profile heists. Prison as an inevitable fate for the protagonist is a heavy theme, are there any mythical figures linked with being a prisoner or a jailer?
>>324304305 I remember there was an interview that said that P5 wouldn't really have a single main antagonist however you would "gain the attention of the main one" as the Phantom thieves go on their quest to steal hearts. So clealry the diety in question has nothing to do with the events of the game but is interested in what you are doing and since he/she is the antag, they clearly don't like what your doing. Basically it won't be a Nyx/Izanami style antag, this one clearly has their own agenda.
>>324304872 From playing SMT II and Nocturne it seems like most demons like or dislike different answers based on their type, but also that sometimes they just go against those general guidelines and tell you to fuck off.
>>324305050 That could be really interesting actually, like a divine being of light and good tells the protagonist they've lived an unjust life of sin, and Potter-Kuhn argues his case against it or refuses to be judged.
>>324305050 An angel sure, but I highly doubt YHVH since he doesn't exist in the Persona universe, he is replaced with Philemon in this case and he has been MIA sine P2EP.
Going by how the plot is the Phantom Thieves taking the hearts of those who are bad (at least in their eyes), I want to say its Nyarly since the bad side of Humanity is his expertise, but I know that won't happen.
>>324305436 >he has been MIA sine P2EP. Soejima and Hashino confirmed the blue butterfly save point in P4 is him watching over Yu, he isn't MIA at all. In fact P5 is so far the only game with no hints of a butterfly. Even spin-offs had it.
>>324305090 A Yakuza 4 route could be really interesting. Or the kid's take on the adult's argument that they should grow up to be upstanding responsible citizens, while the people actually running society are corrupt to the core and got their power and positions through corruption.
>>324306582 >Do you REALLY believe just because there are less characters, they're going to be more developed ? I had hoped, but with the recent rash of disappointing games I am assuming they're going to be just as shallow.
>>324306582 Now to be honest 5 characters could be done well if Atlus had competent writers, but in this case we all know that won't happen. Anyways since the Seven Deadly Sins seem to play a part in the plot we can assume that there willl be 7 characters.
>>324307715 isn't it obvious that they aren't going to reveal them and they'll let them be surprises for when you play the game...? They gain nothing by revealing them now, it's not as if anyone who isn't already going to buy the game would be swayed by the reveal of a new party member.
memes aside, It's silly to think that will be getting some sort of P2 continuity, that story is done. Each Persona is becoming more self contained (P3 being the last one with serious connections to its predecessors) but that doesn't mean the writers can't give us a story of similar quality to P2 instead of pulling shit from their asses half of the time.
>>324308056 Retards like you were the ones who were saying P5 was OBVIOUSLY coming out in 2015 and the rest of us who noticed the obvious signs of of a delay (namely the total lack of promotion of the game for months on end) were just dumb newfags who "have clearly never been through an Atlus hype cycle before."
There was plenty of promotional images for all the P3 and P4 party members to go around despite "spoiling" them because they know that's something people want to see and that's what you do to promote your game. If we don't start seeing more characters soon it's becoming more and more likely that what we're seeing is all we're getting. It wouldn't shock me if social links were stripped down too since we have seen almost nothing of that side of the game in the promotional materials and it's a pretty big part of the game to just be a simple omission.
>>324310301 >childhood love interest shows up halfway >hey, last time I saw you you were gang raped by marauding soldiers until they had enough of you and then split your innards in half. what happened? >I got better
One of the funniest scenes in literature
