Persona 3 and 4 are old and busted.
Junpei and Kanji will always be my niggas for life though.
>sitting in "that" seat
>looking out the window
So the logo of TAKEYOURHEART was actually just Potter's persona
>fatass waifu autists already coming up with fanfiction shit about how their waifu will make a cameo in P5
I used to think the same. Then I watched Persona 4 The Animation dubbed (which for no apparent reason removed honorifics) and got friggin disappointed.
BEARTeddie calling Nanako "Nana" instead of "Nana-chan".
When I first met Rei in persona q I wanted to date her but I couldnt because it didn't have any social links. And Zen would get mad at me
I at least want another game where you can date Rei and make her happy, she is a cute character
>the first chracter from Phantom's row
Oh just let people have fun. I don't think anyone expects the shit they're making up to be in the game, but it's fun to imagine.
Also I kinda get the feeling that, at the start ofthe game, Slave-kun is the only one with a proper persona, while the rest of his teammates are just sort of channeling his power until they develop their own.
That interview did talk about spreading your 'personality' to other people, which could also explain why everyone goes from seeming normal to seeming fucking mental in fights.
Jesus there are so many good choices for the OP, and you pick the same one that's been done at least 4 times already, christ
Also that info in the OP is cluttered as fuck, we need to prune some stuff
Is she an American or something? She looks pretty white (even for an anime character).
Guys, if potter's persona is actually named JOKER, what if... all the characters' persona are named after Kamen Riders? I mean hell, they already spoof Sentai, why not add another Tokusatsu franchise.
Is the Harry Potter-kun meme going to be ongoing?
He doesn't even look like Harry Potter and it's literally 9gag tier. We get it, he has round glasses.
I know that the 9gag P3/4-only audience latches onto this sort of low hanging fruit, so I really hope they give him a default name, even if most people change it, that we can call him
I doubt they'd do uncles again after P4.
normal sized. He just happens to wear a tophat because he's the other self of a gentlemen thief and all that.
See this image?
Why do they lack masks here besides the cat? I in the gameplay segment, they were wearing them but when we get to the all out attack they suddenly arent. In Persona 4 all character portraits showed up with the glasses besides teddie.
What does this mean?
>tying everything to P3/4
Now you're reaching
Jesus fuck that Potter looks Sho as fuck. It's like Soejima ran out of ideas.
No one thinks it sounds cool, but calling him 'Slave-kun" isn't cool or funny either. Go figure.
I think we should start calling him Phantom-kun honestly, but whatever float's people's boats.
characters that could fulfill the role of 'detective hunting you' as outlined in the previous thread
>Literally any of the Shadow Operatives
>Some new person
Stop getting my hopes up. You all fucking said it would be Nyarly back in Arena, and then it fucking wasn't. It was just another shitty Izanami-spawn.
P5 either takes place in 2011, 2016, or 2022 based on "4/11 Monday".
I would guess 2016 as 2022 is a bit too far away and 2011 would make it a samequel to P4. Still 2016 isn't as far in the future as recent Persona game have been.
If I had to guess
2 weeks before the JP release
>this place has been using it for months
>japan even uses it
>/9gag/ (like anyone even uses that website)
Fuck off. Call him what you will but you wont see it stop until the the game comes out.
That guy who possesses corpses and solves crimes
Ya I'm thinking the green eyes might be a giveaway.
Someone in another thread said the characters for her name were weird and that it's the kind of thing you would see a foreigner have. I have no idea if that was BS or not.
>Why would the detective not be an original character?
There almost certainly will be some wholly original detective character in the story. But such a character also hasn't been revealed so far, so people joke or think about theoretical if unlikely cameos.
Thank god they made blondie's eyes green. If they were blue there'd be people shouting OMG ITS LUCIFER YOU GUYS
Someone said they spotted a union jack on her bookbag or jacket or something. I haven't noticed it thought.
Clearly means Raidou. I mean, time travel, man.
>that doesn't make it a good or funny nickname.
Man you guys will fight about anything. I personally still like Potter-kun. Depending on if an official name is given in the Bluray that comes with DAN, Potter will be his last name on my playthrough.
they were pretty big in IS and EP
Plus they went through all the effort of setting up and establishing the ShadOps through the arena games, not just that they exist but the amount of political maneuverability they have, how far their reach extents etc.
It would be pretty weird for them to not get wind of whatever goes on in P5 and send someone down.
I was worried about 3/4 members showing, but after that trailer, I honestly think that we won't see any of the main casts from 3 or 4 again, I just can't see them getting in the mix of 5
Ultimax was the farewell to 3 and DAN is the farewell to 4
Never doubt Atlus.
I'm sure Yu will appear. Or Elizabeth.
That's honestly the most likely scenario. Some side character appears for something unimportant, and little tidbits in the dialogue like "Did you hear? Risette is holding a concert nearby!"
>Atlus in charge of making original characters
Even with "anxious shy guy" alter ego.
Let's just call him Ripoff-kun.
People should just stop calling P3MC "MC" and start calling him by his canon name, which is Makoto.
Then we can simply refer P5MC as MC, until Persona 5 gets a movie/animu which names him.
>I was worried about 3/4 members showing,
We still have no idea what's going on with Sho. SO is poking their head in every corner, Elizabeth is stomping all over Japan and Theodore is confused as fuck while the known universe is being held together by a door.
I don't think they'll be heavily invested in P5's plot, but they may make a splash at a few points, I'm 90% certain Elizabeth will appear in some way.
>1 and 2 are self contained
>3 and 4 are self contained
>5 and 6 are also self contained and unrelated to previous persona games
Would you be mad?
>reading part of the Famitsu interview
>repeatedly says "juvenile school setting"
>this means absolutely fucking nothing
Clearly it means some kind of delinquent setting, which will be really cool.
P1 and P2 were linked.
P3 and P4 were linked after Arena.
So naturally P5 and the mythical P6 will be linked. At least after P6 comes out sometime when I'm in a geriatric ward, the technological singularity has come and gone, and we're all posthuman utility fogs.
Hey, remember when one of your party members was literally Doraemon? Like almost a decade ago now?
How can you possibly be this slow?
>throw personas canon out the window
I can dig it
Most of the heavy cameos for persona 3 on 4 happen on side games so i dont know why would you guys think that P4 would make a big cameo on P5 is probably some really small character like AI
If shadows can appear in the real world, I imagine other Persona users can do the same. It means the world is connected to the CU.
Or so I think. It's never really explained.
Name an original character who isn't similar to anyone else.
Sorry Anon but a movie doesn't mean it's canon. Atlus either has to officially call him Makoto in an interview, announcement, or in a game. I'd like it to be Makoto but that thing still stands.
Of course not. Only thing is an overarching story but Persona has always generally been self contained.
>mfw we finally get a delinquent waifu.
Atlus is not stupid continuity makes a series unfriendly to new players and lest be honest persona never had much off a overarching plot they change a lot of things from a tittle to the other.
Nah. I'm okay with pretty much anything. I have ideas for "that would be neat" but I trust Atlus to make something interesting regardless.
>Low-tier, I doubt you'll be fighting a god in this one.
>I doubt you'll be fighting a god
Dude, it's still a MT game. There's ALWAYS a god responsible.
That "delinquent" is the word they were looking for and not "juvenile."
>unironically hoping that 5 is linked to 3 and 4
Sorry but no.
>high on trailer hype
>want to replay a Persona game
>they all feel like shit since they aren't P5
>so i dont know why would you guys think that P4 would make a big cameo
I think it's a question of who thinks it's actually going to happen and who thinks "Hey that would be neat/stupid/funny."
At this point, we have no way of knowing. Atlus will do whatever it wants. They can continue the pattern or they can break it.
I already told you that I like Makoto and want it to be canon. Don't be retarded either.
Anon, Persona continuity always existed. Atlus just makes the games self-contained so that people can still enjoy one title and not worry about the others.
But if you bothered to play each of them, you'd see there is an overarching story.
>tfw we'll see a teen-aged Nanako when we inevitably take a trip to Inaba.
I can't wait.
I hope we have a run in with the law too, and see Naoto/Chie/both
Would you prefer a faggot instead?
I'm gonna keep wanting that and there's nothing you can do to do stop me.
I thought you were talking about P5, not P4. As for what causes the TV world to go wonky, all it takes is Inaba to start saying shit. Remember it's the Collective Unconsciousness of Inaba.
Don't forget the research for artificial persona users was done by SEBEC first, which was acquired by Nanjo and very likely shared by Kirijo.
I didn't necessarily mean as a boss.
Considering the P5 group is a bunch of "criminals", having her "catch us" and reprimand us, before finding out that we're hunting shadows too would be fun.
I saw someone else say 2018.
>Just entering puberty
>Still cute as a button with developing "assets"
I don't see any issue.
We've already seen one more in the video, plus there's the 4 characters on that one screen in the background from the last trailer. The top one was Morgana and the second one was Ryuuji, so the other two are presumably other party members.
Yu's power is fucking broken mate.
He sees nothing but Truths, meaning any and all Illusions are worthless against him, and you can not alter his memories, thoughts or anything else that would change what is true.
Second his can see anything that is invisible, and possibly even see a Doppelganger/Form changer as their True form.
Now mix this with the fact his Personas can have immunities to PHYSICAL damage making him immune to any physical powerhouse can do nothing to him. Superman? Hulk? Goku? Maybe even Saitama? He's unkillable to them. Plus his truth powers might show him their weaknesses. Because they are a Truth that he can see.
It would be great if it's just these 4.
There is literally nothing worse than a bunch of vapid, arbitrary waifutrash characters shoved down our throat for merchandising purposes.
It would really show some class and commitment to quality to keep the group small.
Then you can replay the rest of the series before P5 comes out since they'll all look like th greatest shit in the world after that schlock
So is the MC's persona confirmed yet? I've heard some people saying it's Shax, but is that backed up with a source?
I was talking about P5, if shadows and such are in the real world the SO should be picking up reading of it happening. The explanation of them barely getting any from Inaba and not bothering to check it out was that it was in a pocket world.
I'd be astonished if there's only going to be those four the whole game.
Though it may be P1 style with characters coming and going rather than a growing crew you have to pick from..
Not even the reason why the characters can use their persona is consistent in the series, you can't call it a overarching story when even something so basic as that is inconsistent.you also have things like evokers for example it was added on P3 just because of the thematic how that would fit in a overarching story?
I hope not. She and the rest of SEES and the IT had their time in the sun and she will always be in my heart but it is time to move on.
It's hard to say. It could go a number of ways. For some reason, these shadows are harder to detect. Or it's not really in the real world, but in a form of the CU that overlaps the real world. Or the SO knows about it but is busy because Tokyo isn't the only place this happens.
I forgot about the shadow detecting. You're right. Honestly it would be weird if the Shadow Operatives DIDN'T know about it and weren't investigating it.
Mitsuru went as far as Inaba, so it wouldn't be strange if she looked at a big place like Tokyo.
P1-2 strong Philly and dancing will make him give your purses.
P3-4 Philly's a weak nigga so you gotta do it the old fashioned way. P3 you use special technology, P4 you go to the CU where you can easily access your inner self.
There. It doesn't need that much of an explanation.
Well guys it's settled. My mother texted me saying she saw the trailer and is now hyped.
Okay, I'll just tard out like you are doing. Jesus Christ take a xanax.
Her, Mitsuru, and Akihiko would be the top three, I'd think. Everyone else has lives to get on with and are reserve members.
The horror. The horror.
God in heaven I'd take up drinking if my ma texted me that.
>Owner of the bar the main characters plan their heists at makes snide comments about you
>Sometimes breaks the forth wall slightly, giving you good advice and insight if you can put things together
>Knows things he shouldn't and you never see his face, and his lines aren't voiced.
>Near the end of the game, if you max his social link, you find out it was Adachi the whole time.
Why do I want this?
Look when you watch as many power based animu as I have, you see possibilities to simple, even worthless powers that change the entire game.
It's why I will never play Infamous, it's uninspired compared to what I've seen before
Well no. Hashino is going to say 'Well she was busy with stuff. She learned to have a life."
And no one would buy that answer. Instead they'll just circumvent it by answering stupid ass questions like what is Morgana's favorite type of cat food.
Because it;s an example of something that could be cool, but isn't because it's not as creative or inspired.
One you see Psychic God Emeneim defibrillate his own heart to come back to life you just can't half ass this shit
>Blondie is in a catsuit during combat
this is gonna be a fetish game aint it
>The likely abundance of cat puns
God damn it, Atlus. They won't be able to stop themselves.
At this point DAN is worth it just (and unless the rest of the remixes are better, pretty much solely) for the mere thought of having Nanako dance to Lotus Juice music.
Right now the fucks given ratio is not in P4's favor at all, so maybe come back and talk about DAN in more detail later.
POST YFW IF THIS WAS THE BATTLE THEME
So then, what is everyone betting on to be the main mythology for the game? In P3 we had ancient Greek, and P4 was Japanese.
Based on what I've seen being guessed, the following are all candidates:
- Odin implications based on the burning eye on the mask
- Heart taking with Daevas and Nyarly with Angra Mainyu,
- Another anon mentioned Ammit - she eats the hearts of people who have been judged impure, and may be connected the same way as above.
Which are you hoping for, anons?
>old fashioned way
Yeah a previously unmentioned way that only came up when devs felt like it.
That was in the game only for aesthetic purposes.
>There. It doesn't need that much of an explanation.
It doesn't because persona don't really have a overarching plot.
So I guess we can make Type Moon jokes after all.
>ranged and melee weapon for every character
>waifu trash and S-Links are gone
>randomly generated dungeons are gone
Given you seem to think that Yu is some kind of invincible god despite him not showing any of the abilities or attributes to the degree you mentioned, I'd say that yes you do have to spell out your insane and twisted logic.
>It doesn't because persona don't really have a overarching plot.
The Kirijo-Nanjo stuff is part of the overarching plot. You can't tell me that the effects of the Philemon and Nyarlathotep bet didn't have lingering consequences in the later games.
I'll give you P4 because that game is literally just contained, but the first three games are tightly connected.
if I make my PQ team out of mitsuru, shinjiro, yukiko, and kanji, for solely character reasons and not gameplay reasons, it means i'm pretty much a sucker for perfect girls and tough guys with a soft inside, right?
I'd guess seven total, given the unnamed other party member in the second trailer and the faces on the screen in the first, in addition to the fact that the cat is associated with lust, meaning each party member could potentially have their own deadly sin.
Pic related, MC's persona
2 ravens, Thunin and Munin, I think.
Can we make a separate general for Persona 3 and 4? I'm not against that fandom, but it's kind of off-topic when discussing Shin Megami Tensei: Persona. Especially because nobody even talks about the actual game anyway, but just headcanon stuff.
I wouldn't call P3 "tightly" connected to its predecessors, but it's got connections and is clearly in the same universe. For that matter P4 is bound to P3 even without Arena. You actually go to Tatsumi Port Island and you meet or see NPCs from P3.
All the persona games are interrelated, but it's important for the series future that it never feel like new titles are getting weighed down by all the old lore, characters, and history. Each game should be able to strike out on its own and do what it wants. Within reason of course.
More importantly the only actual substance Yu has as a character is the fact that he ISN'T some elder god tier gary stu, he's a gary stu that's completely worthless without the bonds he's made.
At least until Ultimax occurred, though the writers for Ultimax probably wrote his dialogue after watching five minutes of the first Golden Animation Episode.
Sure! Go make a /p5g/. And link it here.
Or you could go back to /v/, and just make a persona 5 thread there, where your usually going on about one topic, while generals have several.
>I wouldn't call P3 "tightly" connected to its predecessors,
I only say tightly connected because the events of P3 is the fallout from the events of P1 and P2. It doesn't require character appearances but just mentioning the Nanjo Group and artificial persona users gives you the clues on what lead to this.
P5 probably takes place in the same universe but it's its own story.
Then a few years later we'll get Persona 5 arena where the protagonists have to steal a trophy and the P3 and 4 casts end up fighting them for it and there'll be a new toaster and Teddie and Morgana will try to compete in irritation.
Look foward to it.
Eh, I'm not done but these guys seem to have at least played 3 and 4. Which I cant say for IGN and other analysis videos.
They just kind of speculate about what they liked about the gameplay and where's they'd like it to go. No really worth it, since they still dont know shit about the entire franchise.
Except for removing waifus and S. Links, they'd be crazy to remove that
The S. Links are likely to be mor complex though, some Catherine-level character and storytelling
I don't even care if I'm baited but can all the people who think or even want Naoto to appear in Persona 5 actually die?
>I don't even care if I'm baited but can all the people who think or even want Naoto to appear in Persona 5 actually die?
That's pretty harsh. Did you dislike the cameos of P3 in P4?
You know what? Before this trailer, I used to personally be offended when someone shit talked P3 or P4, but now? I couldn't give less of a fuck about them
Hell, I'd probably join in.
I'm still hyped as fuck for the P3 movies though, but that's all
No, I just don't think that Naoto was a particularly interesting or important enough character to warrant it.
Also when Persona 4 came out there was significantly less persona 3 related media out, we weren't as sick of the characters. On top of that, the cameos weren't from the main party.
Why would you join in? What inspired this change of heart? Something being amazing can lessen one's personal enjoyment of something else, but you shouldn't try to bring down other peoples' enjoyment of something. Shame on you.
>I don't want this thing therefore people who want this thing should actually die
>I don't want this thing
That's okay. No problem there.
>can the people who want this thing actually die?
That's a bit overboard. You should reconsider your priorities.
>She's supposedly originally from Finland
Source or stop spreading misinformation like some P2faggot.
Just because it's about crime doesn't mean she's going to be in it, nor does she make more sense than goddamn Bebe to make a cameo.
Her last name can be interpreted as finnish as people like>>93701412 is saying. Whether she actually is finnish or not is still up for interpretation. Signs point towards "yes", but even how much finnish she is remains unknown, she could be born in japan to second generation finnish parents, so it's a lot of assuming on both sides.
Shit, this is the kind of music you play to chill in a casino or something. Delicious.
Also, it reminds me a bit of beach levels of Sonic games for a reason....
While I do think those are fair points, people are going to want to speculate or pretend or hope for characters they want to return regardless.
I also do think that P5 will feature some sort of cameo, regardless if I or others want them or not. It seems inevitable though obviously not ruled out as well.
Same. I'll enjoy P5 (hopefully) , but I won't give up my love for the previous games and their characters.
I doubt the story will end with the team still being thieves. I mean you just know at some point if thievery is their main thing something will go horribly wrong, probably involving Deity-No-Okami, and they'll have to save the world.
If anyone from Persona 4 or 3 has any part in the story or is part of a game mechanic like the FUCKING IDIOTS who want Naoto to show up in dungeons like the reaper I will LITERALLY kill myself. If it's a small cameo then I won't. Screencap this /pg/ I will literally kill myself if naoto is in this game as a major character.
I don't wish death on people who want otherwise but it would be nice if P5 was entirely it's own thing, I've grown tired of the P3/4 cast and I'm still terrified that Atlus at some point is going to pull the trigger and reverse P3MC's fate.
What is the best Ultimax lobby music and why is it Sun?
That doesn't mean it's Finnish. He's pulling shit out of his ass.
If you are foreign in Japan, you are not allowed to have kanji or hiragana in your name. I'm not even joking when I say this. The only way you can get your name or your child's name in glorious Kanji/hiragana is if you marry a Japanese person.
Imagine if stats could be more influential in the gameplay.
>better your charm is, the better you can negotiate, flatter and charm yourself out of trouble or influence the right people to make your heists go that much smoother.
>with more courage, you could raise the stakes by accessing more risky choices during heists that yield a greater reward if pulled off
Yeah, but maybe they're forced to put their masks back on? Like if one of their friends gets kidnapped or something. The costumes seem to be related to their personas so maybe they have to dress up to save their friend.
>While I do think those are fair points, people are going to want to speculate or pretend or hope for characters they want to return regardless.
This is especially true when we don't really have a lot of details still. Sure, we learned a lot today, but the overall plot, the whole cast, the actual gameplay, we can't really confirm anything at this point. Which will inevitably lead to speculation, serious and not.
I'd like Naoto to be a major character in the game.
That being said, I don't want her to be a major character in the game. You're taking people having fun thinking "boy it'd be cool if a character I like is in this game!" too seriously.
>The only way you can get your name or your child's name in glorious Kanji/hiragana is if you marry a Japanese person.
Which is still highly assuming, she could be half finnish, half nip. I agree that people are jumping the gun hard on her being white, but at the same time she does look like a japanese caricature of a white person.
That'd be pretty cool.
>If you courage is high enough you can jump across the chandeliers to get behind the enemies and get player advantage rather than being forced to face them head on
Takamaki is not a normal Japanese family name. Takamäki is, however, a normal Finnish one. Most likely Atlus was just being creative with the family names though, and this is just a coincidence.
So with how much freerunning/skating there was in the trailer, along with Potter's sneaking/cover move he did, how likely is it that there are some sections of the game where we can freerun and jump up walls?
Exactly. We only have so much to work off of. People are going to discuss what they want to discuss in regards to Persona 5 or any other Persona related topic they want to discuss. This is /vg/ and we should be having civil discussions as best as possible as a community we are.
>Takamaki is not a normal Japanese family name
According to fucking who? Look it up in a name dictionary and you'll find it, unless you're using some weird definition of what is and isn't a 'real' name.
Would you give a white person some kind of special treatment for having decent taste? Just wondering.
It's literally racist to be "surprised" when a black person isn't retarded.
>It's literally racist to be "surprised" when a black person isn't retarded.
I live in the south, I can attest to you how surprised I am every time I see a non-retarded black person.
And it gets weirder depending on the region you're from. I think the average person (or entry weeb) assumes if it's not Miyamoto or Yamada or something it's not a real Japanese surname.
>P5 trailer comes around
>people suddenly forget what a shadow looks like
Reminder that if you FES you have massive shit taste, a good intro doesn't use anything from the base game, the entirety of the FES intro is cut scenes and gameplay
I say vanilla P4
>I hope Souji Seta appears as a teacher in the school
First Woolie, now Danny Brown. Are all black people Chiefags?
The Endurance one for sure.
Until he goes to sleep, and then he'll wake up and keep doing it for about a week until he goes back to /v/.
Blonde hair and Green/blue eyes are usually an indicator of whiteness.
What is it about men of African descent and Chie?
For the record Chie is best Persona 4
