Can't wait for The Breakfast Club x Persona 5 crossover.
Just finished watching the movie and I love it.
Watch more, he's not very good. And as soon as Marie enters into equation he's all MARIE MARIE MARIE all the time. He ends up being as bad as Arena Yu

Famitsu leak (may or may not be fake) :Famitsu leak (may or may not be fake): http://www.famitsu.com/cominy/?m=pc&a=page_fh_diary&target_c_diary_id=91325
For The Empress!
Wonder what kind of girl will have this arcana in P5.
>The social link system is probably going to be >even better than before!!! I read another >translation that said they were more “open” than the past titles.
>WHAT COULD THIS MEAN?
Looking forward to the "Pe-r-so-NA!" scene. Through nothing beats Makoto's awakening. The heavy breathing, the shadow's advance, creepy as shit smile he flashed when he shot himself. Did the female have a scene like that?
>In previous titles, the Persona summoning scene had the Japanese onomatopoeia of “カッ” (kka) which is something often used to depict a flash or clicking sound. In Persona 5, it’s “ブチッ” (buchi) which is a snapping sound (either physically or mentally)
I've been away from /pg/ for a long time, why the hell is it so popular now? We used to be 404'ing on a regular basis, P5 stuff aside what happened?
I'm okay with all of these.
Anne,of course,was there ever actual doubt?
Made an acid jazz/heist music playlist for people who want more of what Shoji Meguro is drawing from for the P5 soundtrack. Still WIP; i'll probably be adding a ton more songs.
Since the siliconera info roughly lined up with everything but the guns stuff, I'm going to say it's a rumor for now.
Sounds half assed as shit.
It just hit me how dead the cast's eyes look in the later on scenes whenever they fire their evolkers. That includes Makoto, I guess that smile and glow was death awakening. Yu just seemed confident as fuck when he awakened.
>it was amidst the time when people were trying to re-merge /pg/ and /smtg/.
only smtg wanted to re-merge
pg was slow, but it had its regulars. 40~50 people posting shit for a while and waiting for P5 stuff. it was never "dead", just slow, we always had the animes and the p4 milking in between anyway, unlike smtg and their shitty law chaos neutral daily discussions because atlus doesnt give a shit
Fucking ANZU. Sounds good, if you ask me.
Sudden rush of adrenaline and other chemicals
"Dude, Yuka-tan. It's like, we're shooting ourselves so we don't die."
I fucking screamed when I saw Igor in P5.
Thank Christ they brought him back.
Cool, thanks. I never knew I like this genre so much.
You get pretty tired after getting high m8. Using an Evoker is like a sped-up trip.
I'd argue /smtg/ was much more dead than /pg/. They spent a lot of time at page 10 before 750 posts.
Not to mention their shitposting is far cancerous more than the shitposting here
"Heey akihiko senpai have you ever thought that...that people die when they get killed?"
>It just hit me how dead the cast's eyes look in the later on scenes whenever they fire their evolkers
that's because they kick their ego in the balls to force-summon a purseowner
I haven't played/talked about Personer in a long time. My first time seeing that trailer and wow the new protag looks like a gigantic faggot. Yu Narukami is the only decent looking MC so far.
The new girl looks too much like Rise, they should have been more creative with the design. I also hope they use guns and the music is hip hop. Edgy as fuck but I love it
>Yu Narukami is the only decent looking MC so far.
>and wow the new protag looks like a gigantic faggot.
The fuck am I reading.
Yu has always looked like a faggot in everything before the anime played him off as a pimp.
This Protagonist looks alpha as fuck though.
I want The Phantom to cum inside me.
>muh skinny fuccboi is a pretty star
Also both MCs from your picture are ugly. Maya is seriously one of the ugliests persona girls and that's not because of the old artstyle, all P1 girls look better than her and except for Elly's stupid redesign and Yukino, all P2 girls and most female NPCs with portraits look better too.
Tatsuya is just a faggot. Nothing special about his design. If you lined up the P2 boys you wouldn't think he is the protagonist because of how bland his design is.
I dont want the "Face your shadow" shitty theme of Persona 4 in my Persona 5
They better explain this shit tomorrow or later on
They are going to be taking lots of elements from Persona 4 like how s links and shadow work, it's best to get over it. After all the arena games were all about indoctrinating the persona 3 cast into how the P4 cast say and do things. Soon, soon the P5 cast will meet the P4 cast and give up their thieving ways and then you too shall know the joys of bonds.anon. Join us.
> the new protag looks like a gigantic faggot
Look at this fucker
He can wet panties on a 500 miles radius just by smiling
hes the sexiest persona protag so far
Yu got swag after the anime
But potter got style and mojo
look at this shit. she looks like some generic unimportant NPC. even Jun looks more like a protagonist
>Tatsuya looks less generic than Yu, tho
>High as fuck for japs standarts
>Only person in Inaba to pop his collar and open his shirt
>Everyone else just wear their uniforms correctly like the chumps they are so he pops out even more
Sure thing bud
He is fun and slightly autistic as a navigator (says Akihiko looks stylish, barks when you fight as or against Ken&Koro, tells you to mercykill your oppnent in french).
He doesn't deserve to be that low. Not lower than P4GA Yu.
I played all the Persona games, all the protags look like faggots. The only one that actually looks like a guy is Yu. Yeah he has a bowlcut but you can at least tell the gender. And he's actually a pimp.
The Japanese did always like the skinny bishounen bitches. I just wish they would look cool. Rise is warm
>I dont want the "Face your shadow" shitty theme of Persona 4
>of Persona 4
>/pg/ was fairly dead for a while
>We used to be 404'ing on a regular basis,
Literally the only time we were close to dying was between Arena and P4G release. Other than that we usually burned through a thread in a day or two.
Jesus Christ, someone please put trigger warnings on these retarded opinions.
I like how the older a fanbase gets, the more paranoid it becomes. Everything is a conspiracy to make things the way you don't like it.
I've wondered something
Yukiko appears to work very often, especially early in P4
But she doesn't show any signs of having significant money or spending it, like Yosuke does when buying his bike, Teddie's clothes, Teddie's food.
She also seems way too young to have an agreement with her parents to work in exchange for rent, since no parents would do that before their kid is finished with high school.
Does that mean >she does it for free
Turns out the author for P3 and P4 and P5 was bullshitting. He doesn't want to touch the old games out of respect, he just doesn't want to give up his treasure trove of old plots to work with. Persona Q was a rip off of Maki's plot, Persona arena ultimax was a rip off of Nyral and god knows what kind of shit he'll steal from the old games to use for Kanami's plot in DAN. Atlus is letting him do it because it's making them money and the general fanbase usually does not care for the original games enough to realize the similarities in the new games. It's the perfect crime!
Holy shit you don't even need to, the MC personas are so good you won't even need any others til halfway through the game.
And most people consider P1 to age worse than P2 since it has first person dungeons.
Here is thine reply
>And most people consider P1 to age worse than P2 since it has first person dungeons.
The first person dungeons in the P1 psp remake are quite okay to play
>If yes I will play it, the random fights dont bother me much
you will regret saying that when you see the absurd encounter rate in both versions
For the most part. You can use the MC personas through the majority of the game, only a few of the extra personae are useful, and most of the time you'll just get them to max the rank and return to Igor. For instance, Poltergeist being maxed and returned gives you an incense.
I think there are some things that require talking to demons about though, such as to encounter rumor demons at the factory and to get information, etc. But it's not really crucial.
>Shoots like a gun
>Sounds like a gun
>Kills like a gun
It is a gun
I'm glad they're doing that too. The blank expressions for everything was unnerving.
Funniest part is that Soejima and Meguro were oldfags and are witnessing the reshashing but say nothing. That's why we won't get shit for P1's 20th anniversary because then people will realize that its contents were being reused repeatedly by P-Studio.
How can guns be fake if our enemies are personas
It's weird that they put "gun" in quotes like that. It makes it sound less like they're fake guns and more like they're not really guns at all. That would be a fitting description of evokers.
So they aren't guns
But they are not toys
Customizable battle evokers?
>That's why we won't get shit for P1's 20th anniversary because then people will realize that its contents were being reused repeatedly by P-Studio.
That would be assuming people would care. Like there would be a mass revolt, with people claiming "wait, the themes in this series are being used consistently! Let's burn Atlus down!"
That's why they would never remake the old games and sell them, even though that's exactly what they did.
As real as these guns then I suppose
That "protag being slient is just a ruse" thing would be nice
>are the guns real or not real
They are holograms you fucker
Shadows get hurt because they're all technology and shit too
All the heists happens in the cyberspace
>It is hinted at in the Famitsu feature that both the protagonist and his friends have lost their homes
Damn it what's the TRUTH.
Not actually my sword or vita, just reposted that from a /v/ thread a while back about posting vidya with your gun/weapon
>Customizable battle evokers?
I want a rocket-launcher themed evoker. Rocket jumping Persona summoning!
We Matrix now?
>That's why they would never remake the old games and sell them, even though that's exactly what they did.
I would hardly call them remakes. I'd call them "enhanced" ports at best.
They have so much in common with atlus,then. I do wonder how many of the models will replicate the ones from catherine. I wonder who will get the tranny's. I can't believe that guy lost it to her and didn't notice. How could he not notice a dick, were they fucking in the dark like cavemen? nobody has done that sense the 90's Or so I've been told.
>The demons are digital demons
I can dig it
>You are Slave. Want emancipation? Steal the truth and escape the Matrix
Shit niggas i think we are on something here
I thought strange when the Wachowski brothers appeared at the Atlus HQ
I wish the new game would have a lot more hip hop songs. Those were really cute and cool
What persona did the death or changing your reality theme?
Oh wait you are right
Meanwhile persona 4 had the reach out the truth and face yourself theme (both recurring from P1 and P2)
You do know Persona recycled many themes from other SMT games before them right
P3 specially. We had plenty of mainline games with death and changing reality as a theme
Sorry for bursting your bubble, P3 is not the original masterpiece you love to believe it is
Everything is data.
>So buttmad he have to use SMT examples
Oh boy I didn't know I would leave you grappling at straws
>he thinks female majins aren't real
>p3 is fresh and original and best game ever!!! death themes so original
>we had plenty of games like that bef-
>NUH UH YOU'RE USING SMT GAMES INSTEAD OF PERSONA LIKE YOU NEVER SAID LALALALA I WIN HAHA
Next you gonna say "Persona copied from jojo"
yes but can bullets defeat THESE samurai?
SMTIV Law ending.
The Filth shall be eradicated and the Lord's will be done.
It's impossible to argue with P3fags, jesus christ. Keep thinking your teenager drama anime with waifu simulation is the best work of the last two centuries surpassing the boundaries of art, movies, books and games in one big masterpiece. Ignorance is truly a bliss.
We are all P5 fags now
We joined in happy union
Don't let curves fool you. Animes have very feminine guys.
So are they bringing water back to to persona ? and nuclear ?
>But I really doubt they can make P5 better than P4.
>The characters in P4 are too good.
>The Characters in P4
Bearsona right guys? XD
Phantom will probably be using some sort of special firepower that only damages Shadows and doesn't leave any traces like normal gunfire would. Because stealth.
>negotiating for xp
We know more than likely there's going to be a school trip at some point in the story. What are some places you would like to go? Also, do you think there should be an option to skip the trip in favor of having other options available during those days?
Honestly, there's just no way they can make the new cast as good and as memorable as P4's cast. Yukiko is not that great, but Kanji, Teddie, Adachi, Naoto, Yosuke, Nanako are. The best characters, or at least the most likable in the whole series.
I can't wait to clear the game with 0 alerts.
>Also, do you think there should be an option to skip the trip in favor of having other options available during those days?
Only if one of those options is to
spend a long timewith anzu
>Playing Persona 5
>Suddenly Beach trip
>Oh not operation babe hunt 3.0 god please no
>OPERATION BABE HUNT 3.0
So big question about persona 5
are we getting mystery food X does Anne suck a cooking ?
Nigga ALL the P4 characters were great. You can argue that Yukiko wasnt all that, but still. Compared to the boring one-dimensional unlikable faggots from P1-P3, it was the best overall cast.
It's gonna take a miracle to top the P4 characters
p4 didnt had an operation babe hunt. till golden. then they added two.
In Persona, there were 5 characters who suck at cooking. Maya, Fuuka, Yukiko, Chie, and Rise. Maya only is really suggested to suck I believe (she eats canned crab a lot), Fuuka only really in her link, and we know how it is in 4. I can see them skipping it this time around. It's not like all the girls suck.
> Famitsu allegedly leaking on a Monday
I guess the daring magazine heist happened after all.
Oh right. Never mind me, I get it now. P2's fusions required too much negotiating for cards, which didn't contribute to XP growth so game progression slowed to a halt every time you wanted to fuse something.
Yeah, that sucked.
>Operation babe hunt was all nice and cool in P3
I thought it was annoying in P3 too (introducing Aigis on it might have helped, fuck Aigis)
Just like the hotsprings scene. But i know i can't do shit because japs love this kind of shit.
We always were. Soejima is an anagram for Kojima. In some secret language.
>So is there any hope of this not just being on fuckin PS ?
I mean sure anon, you will get to play Persona5 on your WiiU! And on your PC too! Even XBOX will have one version! Atlus wants everybody joining in the fun!
She really doesn't look much like Rise other than the hair.
For what handheld?
Nah we dont even know if the vita could run p5 without some downgrades.
And even if it could the vita is not exactly thriving to warrant a life-cycle long enough for a port
mfw The Bouncer had absolutely nothing to do with bouncing after the opening level
Oh there's going to be a handheld version eventually.
I'd wager money they have written P5's engine in such a way as to facilitate future handheld ports.
Where vita, 3DS or whatever is unknown.
>Sunny saves world and makes super jets
>Nanako gets saved and watches TV
Another reason why lovers a shit
are you fuckers dumb or something
yeah sure P5 will probably be playable on Vita TV. Via remoteplay, which sony will start pushing with the big titles. nothing else. it won't matter how powerful the game end up being, via remoteplay the Vita TV will handle it
and obviously no fucking 3DS versions
As long as the Vita keeps chugging along in Japan that's all that matters.
Downgrades didn't stop them from doing P3P. It wouldn't even need to be as dramatic.
Most of the Nintendo ones are also exclusives. Xbox games are the rare exceptions.
But if they do downgrade it like P3P people will still recommend the P5/P5 Improved edition like they do with P3 FES at any rate
I agree with Xbox because Xbox sucks.
But I'm sure people would buy it if it was ported to nintendo.
Shin megami tensei was on the 3ds and it's the same studio so I'm sure fans of the series would want to play Persona.
Same for 999 or virtue last reward and dengan rompa
So? Is there any reason to think Atlus has changed their business model? Sony will do what Sony wants, but Atlus is going go want to cash in with an enhanced portable remake.
They've been doing that over and over for years.
>Hashino is choosing to remain quiet about why Personas are appearing as actual enemies and where the protagonist has his fights.
If I was dealing with retards like that I would keep quiet too.
FOR FUCK'S SAKE I DIDN'T STOP LURKING /v/ AND /vitagen/ JUST TO SEE CONSOLE WARS HERE
FUCK OFF BACK TO /v/ FAGGOTS
I know, but seeing 3ds fanboys shilling their favourite handheld in every unrelated thread is so fucking tiring and annoying after years of this shit.
They should go back to 3dsgen and bump it before it dies for a week again once again.
The point was that 999 and virtue last reward are on 3ds and that danganronpa isn't even though it's the same studio.
Just like shin megami tensei is and persona isn't.
But it's not really a console war. We're not insulting other consoles and saying they're shit. We're just saying we'd like the game to be on more than the ps.
I could be wrong on this because I havent played P3 in a while. But wasn't Yukari scared/insecure when it comes to men because reasons. Junpei and her were the more realistic average characters that you would actually meet in high school.
And I don't really see how she's a bitch. She makes fun of Junpei sometimes, but everyone does, it's nothing serious. She genuinely cares about everyone and I fucking loved it when she slapped Mitsuru (who is supposed to be the most mature one) when she was losing her way. She got over all her issues by the end and entered the harem.
P4:Arena sold like fucking shit on it and the console is dead in Japan along with the One, porting to it makes no financial sense even if it would be relatively simple
It would require a massive overhaul of how the game plays thanks to the retarded controller and unique console architecture, is dead in the West and East with only Nintendo games making any decent money on it, and Nintendo aren't known for being very helpful for third party devs trying to port to it nowadays after Ubisoft and EA dropped it and they gave up trying
Would require a massive investment to appeal to a very niche Western audience (PC gamers with no PS3/4) that doesn't exist in Japan where the majority of sales will occur
Not strong enough, would require total rework of the entire game to work
Would do well financially and will probably get a port at some point considering the hard on Atlus has for sony handhelds
You satisfied now?
