The Persona 5 Thread

Post by Robbie » Thu Feb 12, 2015 1:22 pm

A thread for discussion about Persona 5 and information if you so desire to read.

Developer: Atlus
Consoles: PS3 & PS4
Release Date: 2015

Trailer:


Gameplay:
Like some of the previous entries in the Persona series, Persona 5 is a role-playing game in which players live out a year in the life of a high school boy who gains the ability to summon facets of his psyche, known as Personas. Dungeon exploration features additional elements from previous iterations, such as jumping across gaps or dashing between cover. Dungeons feature a mixture of fixed environments tied into the plot and theme, and randomly generated environments. Battles are based on a turn-based attack system, with the characters wielding both their Personas and two weapon types: a gun and a melee weapon. The Social Link element also returns.

Plot:
The story focuses on the Protagonist after he is transferred to Shujin High School in Tokyo. Staying with friends of his parents, he meets up with two other students and a talking, shape-shifting cat. During his time there, feeling suppressed by his environment, he moonlights as a cat burglar dubbed "The Phantom", working with his friends to carry out heists and encountering mysterious phenomena along the way.

So yeah I'm looking forward to the game, I've only played 4 but I quite enjoyed it so I'll be buying this for PS4!

Definitely gonna be getting a PS4 now, Played P3, and just bought P4G, and despite what people say I much prefer it to P3. Also have PQ as well.
PS4 is looking great for me actually, with Street Fighter 5 also being exclusive to it.

I really hope that the MC isn't a dick. One of the reasons I prefer 4 over 3 is because Minato is a douche.
Also, leave it to Atlus to show 2 minutes of menu screens and still be able to hype up an audience. I have a fetish for menu design and Atlus just hit my spot.

Finally, P4D actually looks pretty good, and with my new Vita in hand, I'll probably buy it. Persona has great music, so a rhythm game actually sounds really nice.

On a side note, in before Persona 6 has a green theme. We've had blue with P3, Yellow with P4, and now red with P5. I like this trend.

It looks amazing so far, love the design of the main character and his main Persona. P3P and P4G are my favourite games of all time so this game has a lot to live up to for me but it's gonna be hype either way

The only thing that concerns me is that it doesn't appear from first glance that the MC is a transfer student, but I could be wrong. One of my favourite things about 3 and 4 was that you played as the new guy and had to build bonds with people from scratch. Would suck if this guy started of with friends rather than having to make them.

Either way there isn't enough information yet to know whether this will be the case.

Never played a Persona game, a small part of me feels like I'm missing out.

Was tempted by the recent 3DS game as that did look kind of interesting but haven't got round to buying it yet.

Looks good, only played P3 (attempted P1 but just eh so skipped to the hype) and Ultimax and I guess I'll grab P4G sooner or later then maybe Q, but looking forward to this. The gameplay looks interesting and visually it looks great, can't wait to pick it up.

I feel dumb. Where was this confirmed though? I only saw the trailer. Either way, I'm feeling great about this game now. PS4 is a must this Christmas for me, I hadn't played on a Sony console since the PS2, and after recently buying a Vita I must say I missed out by choosing a 360 in my high school years. Also paid dolla for live every month, so thanks Microsoft :/

Really liking Arsene's design, pretty similar thematically to Izanagi and that's definitely not a bad thing

Considering it, because I can't be arsed to wait for the localisation. I waited 4 years for Digimon World: Re:Digitise, I've been waiting 3 years for Yakuza 5, frankly, I'm tired of waiting for games to get translated.

Unless the localisation gets confirmed for like a couple months after. I can wait a couple months but I'm not waiting more than a year, cause gooseberry fool that noise.

Current statement is sometime in 2016 for NA release now, so yeah, the localisation for that import is going to take a bit longer than they planned (not surprising). It'll just be a case of wait and see for now.

Still, really interested by all the environments we've seen and the jumping into artwork shown in the trailer. More variety in dungeons would definitely be a big plus.

Posting here because no SMT thread

SMT4 Final has been announced, being a pseudo sequel of sorts. It's had some updated demon designs, like Lucifer not looking so much like an alien. also it looks like Nozomi is a more major character, finally

remember that Strength is a useless stat and never pump it. And just reload the game if you start the fight with Minotaur with Walter as an assist, you aint winning that
