why



Dancing with Kanji? I don't see how that could be bad, that'll be hilarious.

Besides, persona music is actually really good so while its probably not going to be an amazing game seeing as its basically a reskinned miku game it won't be all bad.

Besides, there's nothing wrong with what basically amounts to a Rise-centric spinoff

I do wonder why there was so much gratuitous English in the trailer though....

It fits considering the Main themes and vocal stuff in P3/P4 was for the most part in English save for the end songs.

I just find it funny that the Vita gets a rhythm game, while the 3DS gets an actual RPG.

And yes, I know Vita has Golden, but you know Sony fans are pissed.

But they're getting P5 on PS3 so there's nothing to complain about.

Three Persona games in the near future is fine, two games on Sony and one for Nintendo, its the only Persona game on a Nintendo system at least.

Basically PQ is an Etrian Odyssey game (or they share the same engine, from what I hear) and those have been DS exclusive since forever.

Also it seems that P4U2 won't be coming to the 360 if the latest videos are anything to go by.

Well, according to a twitter post, PQ is canon. And it's supposed to properly conclude P4 and P3's storyline or something.

So, that's one thing to get Sony fans disappointed.

I kinda didn't want to have P3/P4's world conclude but it had to eventually I guess.

Doesn't explain why P3 Protag and Shinjiro are alive. Or why Tartarus is back, or why Theo is present... though that could be explained by there just being more Velvet Room Assistants than we ever see.

I just realized something.

If PQ is supposed to be canon, and Marie appears to be present, that essentially makes P4G's additions completely canon.

I'm not really sure if I like this or not, Marie really isn't a good character at all.

Again, this was just a twitter post. From a fan.

Take the canon statement with a HUGE grain of salt.

The fan bit was left out in the post where you mentioned the twitter post.

That would've been nice to know beforehand.

Taken from the Megami Tensei wiki:

Quote
The story of Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth revolves around a rumor that involves the so-called "Seven Wonders of Yasogami High" and a mysterious clock tower and a labyrinth that appear out of nowhere on the school yard during the Culture Festival of Yasogami High School. According to said rumors, whoever hears the sound of the tower's bell will die. The bell's chime was also heard in Tartarus by the members of SEES, who find themselves transported to Yasogami High. The only way to return the world to its original state seems to be hidden within Zen and Rei - however, both Zen and Rei have lost their memories.

The gameplay of this title is deeply grounded in its Etrian Odyssey roots: Players explore a seemingly endless labyrinth in a first person perspective and battle Shadows in a turn-based fashion just like in Persona 3 and Persona 4. However, players can use a five-man party consisting of the casts from the previous games.

Persona Q gives players the choice to control either the Protagonist from Persona 3 or the protagonist from Persona 4. The dialouge and events will vary depending on the players choices to follow either the Persona 3's SEES or Persona 4's Investigation Team.

Not sure how I feel about the EO-style of exploration.

I know, but to me, that style fits much better for the EO series.

Regardless, I don't really care anyway. Just a slight nitpick.

Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth Teaser


Coming in Fall. Such a quick turnaround from Japan's release, that's exciting. Same with P4A2.

Dancing All Night is scheduled for 2015.

Nothing on P5 yet, but that's expected.

I really haven't touched the franchise since SMT IV so can someone tell me how the P3 protagonist is in this; considering P3's ending. Did I miss a huge plot point somewhere?  :o

Side games sometimes don't follow continuity.  Otherwise Shinjiro wouldn't be there either, especially since the FemPersona 3 Protagonist/Minako is not in there.

Good point, I hope they don't undo the ending of the third game; it would kinda spit in the face of the whole theme it had going.

On the topic of Persona; a while ago I watched an episode of Persona: Trinity Soul and yeah---who  decided it was smart to introduce a plot point that only young people can use persona? What about the multiple adult characters in the series who used them with no ill effects? The persona games are all in the same canon (and arguably in the same canon with the main series and other spin offs.) so I'm guessing this is just a mistake on the anime's part?

Yeah especially since it's not exactly canon as far as the continuity of the games.

Glad to hear it, Trinity Soul wasn't very good from what I saw and I doubt I'll make any effort to watch any more animated entries from the franchise.

Canon in the SMT is an odd thing though, so many of the spin offs are clearly related to the main series even if it's not the same earth, the female protagonist of SMT: If... is in one of the Persona entries (Persona 2 Innocent Sin?) if I remember correctly. Like Zelda I gave up trying to piece the whole franchise into some cohesive whole, so much easier to accept the Amala Network from Nocturne as the multiverse of the franchise and leave it at that.  8D

Okay, P5 is also due in 2015.

Makes sense since it'll be out in Japan at the end of the year.

Guessing it'll be on PlayStation 4? Little behind on persona news lately.

At least watch the Persona 4 anime, while short and obviously they don't get too deep in every single nook and cranny and skip over some things, it's worth it for the main character and how he reacts to things.
