Kenichi Suzumura is one of the biggest male seiyuu in Japan. Him voicing Sho was always suspicious to me.

Also, he hosted the Ultimax launch stream.
Which other seiyuu handles hosting duties for Persona 4 streams? Daisuke Namikawa, who voices Yu.

If Jack the Tripper is really telling the truth about Sho's developer codename being "P5HERO", that would leave us with only 4 possibilities:

1. The developers are cleverly trolling data miners
or
2. They are actually serious about making Sho the next main protag and crashing this series with no survivors
or
3. They will headline Sho for P5 only as bait, where his playable role will be minimal and soon replaced by a Raiden
or
4. Persona 5 will have multiple playable protagonists, each with a seperate and equally sized segment for him/her self, and Sho will be one of them

I'm not too optimistic at this point, so I'm prepared for the worst (number 2).

Everything is too suspicious. For starters, it reeks of red herring because it's too "in your face". On the other hand, they probably expect the most avid japanese Persona fans to beat Ultimax's story mode before P5 trailer so it could be in-game teaser.
For example Atlus showed SMT4 trailer two weeks after they packed the teaser with Soul Hackers 3DS.

I saw this at twitter earlier and didn't gave much importance, but it adds credibility to Sho being the protag.

https://twitter.com/wakoyou/status/504998615157198850

Basically P3, P4 and P5 are confirmed to be the same world. P3 already continued from P2, so unless Hashino is 100% determined to erase P1 and P2, it means it's not just the same universe, but same world as in how P3 and P4 are now closely connected by having both casts interacting.

Personally I wouldn't mind. I don't have a PS3 and this way I won't need to buy one for P5, because I won't give a shit about it.

If P5 really continues from Arena the door certainly won't keep on being a door forever.

I think it's what I would hate the most about that scenario. MC is my waifu too and I want them to leave him alone. We already got PQ to see him once again, I don't want him to become another Yu.

Is anyone here ACTUALLY thinking that P5 is gonna be a flop?

I mean its the same people who are in charge of the previous main Persona games and they clearly care about making a good game. Their last major game was Catherine and that turned out okay, right?

Even if Sho does become the new protag of P5 for lack of a better reason, I'm pretty sure they have a legitimate reason for putting an existing character as the protagonist of the new game.

Keep in mind that Sho IS designed by the same guy who made all the other Persona characters and P5 IS directed by the same guy who made the other main Persona games.

Dunno bout Shoji Meguro as that guy is working on Dancing All Night and that must be some hidden agenda or he REALLY likes making music for Persona games

Chie is a fucking slut. Just imagine the amount of sausage she had between those lips. She was probably the town bike before you came around and she was instantly lusting after your salami next.

Her phonenumber is probably all over public toilets with the annotation that she's willing to do anything for a beefbowl.

And remember those 3 guys from her S rank? As soon as you enter the train to go back home those guys probably rape her and NTR the shit out of her, turning her into a sexslave so they don't have to pay for the meat to take turns on her

>>78387340

Not thinking it will flop. But I do think I won't like it.
Yes they did great games, but it's also a fact that they keep going safer and safer. They keep making the games easier, with more pandering and waifushit.
I somehow understand it, they are a pretty small company. But with P3 they got some success, so for the next game they toned down everything that the fans disliked and multiplied the dating sim stuff that made P3 successful.
P4 now is a real success. So even if P5 is unrelated to the P4 cast, I think it will be even more "safe." I expect lots of friendship, even more silly antics and absolutely nothing that could make otaku feel inadequate.

I played the games in this order P4>P3>P2. But the order I liked them is actually the complete opposite. Every new game lost something good the former had in the name of otaku pandering.

Sho is a refreshing change from le broswagonist. His personality would make for some pretty funny dynamics and dialogue choices. If he's really confirmed to be the P5 protagonist, I just hope the game won't have much to do with the previous ones.

Everyone knows p4 is the weakest plotwise.
It's alot better than a good handful of games don't get me wrong and I still got my kicks from it. but its objectively the worst.

also nanako revival. If they kept her dead it would have had some value. Or actually did something with naoto's whole gender confusion nonsense. Persona4 was missed opportunities.

As soon as you've finished their dungeon, that's it. Character development is over, finished, done.

None of the characters have had any development since their dungeons finished, they're just the same wacky anime stereotypes.

Sho is P5 hero.

Yu HAS to be in it too.

I'm still going with P5 set in Yu's senior year at his new high school. Sho enrolls as an underclassman. Interpret Margaret's comments literally.
>>
>>78393123
And outside of those s.links, there is absolutely no character development. It's like they never happened, because Atlus wrote the games as if they didn't.

Just look at how everyone acts in Arena. Hell, it infects the P3 characters in Arena too, they're all reduced to wacky stereotypes.

Akihiko turns from a hardworking kind person who's had to deal with a lot of shit in his life, and went through a grieving period with Minato and turns into "LOL I'M FUCKING BATMAN"

Rise: I dont want people to think im a prostitute but i realise that risette has and is a part of my life.
Naoto: Im genderconfused. No wait no Im not lets play nancy drew adventures.
Kanjis: His was cute, but again nothing amazing. and kanjis my nigga
Dojimas was my favorite character in that whole game because he felt the most real, although its generic father empty bond with daughter it felt solid compared to the rest.

>>78392924
>>78393356
What this anon said. Not targeting persona 4 exclusively each game has its fair share of generic moeblob stuff but it was the worst offender when it came to anime tropes.

I wanted to enjoy it as much as the others anon but it just didn't hold up. The dungeons were a nice touch made the game feel personalized, but there was only a small handful and you never needed to grind and they could all be completed in one sitting. Combat was polished over p3 but was easy and felt simplified. Persona designs were some of my favorites though and the models were nice so I'll give them credit where its due.

>>78394135
Edge is acceptable when done in moderation and properly. I like how buzzword its been made. Are games not allowed to have emotional exposition outside of MUH WAIFU and HIGHSCHOOL SHENANIGANS? Part of the reason all the previous entries are better because its not happy go lucky scooby doo bullshit all the time.

I suppose Sho being the 'hero' of P5 doesn't necessarily mean he's the player character although it's likely. Atlus had to put that name in there knowing people would find it.

It'll be interesting to see whether they give Sho dialogue and a set personality matching him in Ultimax, cutting out most or all of the player dialogue decision-making.
>>
>>78394473
I personally like edgy.
I hope P5 is.
If it's not, I don't care. I know I will enjoy it even if Sho is the true P5HERO
>>
i was on r/megaten and apparently a PR rep from Atlus says there is no on disc character DLC in the US version of P4AU
>>
>>78394875
heh that atlus backpedaling

at this point it'd be more work for them NOT to have it on-disk

also please don't go to reddit
>>
>>78394730
>Atlus had to put that name in there knowing people would find it.

I don't think Atlus expected gaijins to take apart the game even before the release date.
>>
>>78394875
Then it'll be good if I make sure if he's telling the truth then once it comes out, right? Because ATLUS lied many times and I won't be surprised if they are lying again.
>>
I really really hope you guys are joking about the Sho thing, and it's an elaborate joke.
>>
>People forgetting that Atlus gets off on our tears.

So much for let's positive thinking.
>>
>>78395075
It's in the fucking game
You should be hoping Atlus is joking
>>
Wow now everyone is thinking that persona is shit after this, I mean we aren't sure if sho is gonna be the protagonist and you guys saying that we're gonna get the same cast lol
>>
>>78395075
it's not

see >>78383513
>>
>>78395031

The name is just too much of a tease. Every other character in the list is just called by their normal name. Yu isn't 'P4HERO'.

Furthermore the game was coded by Arcsys so it's not like Atlus imported a bunch of P5 assets themselves and forgot to rename them.

They were anticipating it. Bank on it.
>>
>>78395171
Maybe they edited it as a joke? Shit, let me download it and check.
>>
>>78395250
No, it's literally the internal codename. There's no way they assumed that someone would unencrypt and rummage through the game files.

You're giving atlus way too much credit

>>78395438

Hey Jack, did you decrypt the original pre-load's EBOOT, or just the 1.01 version? Would be interesting if they have any differences.

You shouldn't be so cocky about what you think, if he's the P5 protag you'll end up like this dude.

>>78395150
The True End trophy is called A New Journey
He gets a WIld Card and is a new guest in the VR
This doesn't sound like a joke.

They might not have expected it in a couple of days time, but they knew it would happen.

I dont think show is the MC but if he is them i can see it working he is the lowest of the low pure shit and the game will shoe that even a turd like him can accomplish something

What I'm saying is based on the assumption that it's genuine.
>>
>>78395551
People we're calling it even then...
WE DIDN'T WE LISTEN /PG/, WE COULD'VE BEEN READY FOR THIS
>>
>>78395250

What I mean is they probably hoped for people to find out a bit later. But I'm sure they wanted the fans to see it.
>>
>>78395573
Yeah and people did it for P3P to find out Vincent's name back in like 2010

datamining is not new, P4U2 had new encryption on it

to think that atlus anticipated people looking through the game and put something in to fuck with people is ridiculous
>>
>>78395747
I LISTENED
I THOUGHT I WAS READY
>>
>>78395804

It's ridiculous to just assume they didn't, for that matter.

I dunno why you're so adamant that they couldn't have done it deliberately to tease fans. Atlus plays around with their fans like that all the time.

Nonetheless, I wasn't even surprised at this point.
>>
>>78395936
>It's ridiculous to just assume they didn't, for that matter.

No, it kind of isn't. Have you ever heard of Occam's Razor

and atlus does do teases and stuff but never to the extent of changing an internal filename in the encrypted game

again, you're placing way too much faith in atlus and I don't want to argue with someone who just insists "b-but it could be all put there by atlus to tease the fans!"
>>
>>78395936

Anyway both cases make it seem they are not joking. When Atlus teases something it always ends happening.

Will this work?
>>
>>78396583

They may not want to, but they know fans will anyway. So why not put a little something extra in there as well to see if they find it?

The end of Ultimax already strongly suggests Sho is coming back, in P5 or something else, so it's not like they are totally spoiling the game with such a vague reference.

I don't think so. His name is not really important, but it was already used in a canon game. It would be rather pointless.

I'm not excluding the possibility that P5 will have multiple central party members (so Sho could just be one "hero" out of like 3 or something) but yeah, Hero is a pretty clear indication of protagonist status

Isn't it also the first time in the franchise we got a two-parts fighting spin-off?

Y'know, if you tone down his hair, Sho ain't actually all that edgy.
>>
>>78398068
And what would be so terrible about him being the protagonist?
>>
>>78398068

I'm ok because I had no expectations or interest toward P5. Now I'm being told I was right in not caring about it.
>>
>>78398068
He was healed out of his edge, people wanted protag to have a canon name and P5 to have a darker theme, because P4 was too happy.
Atlus is doing everything to please you guys.

I want /mu/ to leave.

>Sho will be P5 MC or at least will play a central role
>Arenas story mode was there to set the plot of P5 up and link P3 and P4s characters to it

>Labrys will probably be a party member

The only good thing to come out of it, I would have been disappointed if they would have dropped her after Arena

>yfw you can romance her

But he is. His hairstyle, scarf and double sword are still terrible.

>>78398068
Well I'm okay with Sho but please Atlus there is enough p3/p4

>>78398332
that lowers your xp gain

At this point, I'd rather have them adding more connections to fucking DemiKids.

>Atlus is trying Persona into another generic Jap RPG

You fags asked for this.

Is there any actual reason to think that anyone is coming back for P5?
>>
>>78398239
Bullshit. There was no hot spring scene with the entire female cast in ultimax!

>>78398440
>Atlus is trying Persona into another generic Jap RPG
What, like the first game?
>>
>>78398213

All the protagonists are pretty boys. Sho is not pretty enough. Would not fuck.
