@fluxwavez: Does Sho's voice sound like Vic Mignogna (Junpei) to you?

@irrelevantjohn: I've seen a couple of people mention that and, having listened to his voice again, I think it does, sure. I don't think it's actually him, though.

@fluxwavez: At first I thought it might be him, but some of the later voice clips sound like a different voice actor. I'm sure he's voicing Junpei though, so it wouldn't surprise too much.

Looking forward to the game. We still don't have a NA date right?

Sho and P.Sho sounds different in the JP version as well. Sho is the character that fools around with terrible puns and P.Sho is the more serious sounding type.

It's probably him just using a different pitch and tone.

Last I heard, we're looking at late September.

So has it been confirmed yet that the rest of the P3 english voice cast is coming back for this game? because I can say Yikari sounds like Yukari but we never got a clean sample of Junpei to see if it's Junpei. Also I would find it funny if Ken's voice hasn't changed since elementary school.

#9 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19388 posts) -

@uppercaseccc: Michelle Ruff confirmed herself that she is reprising Yukari's role, but nothing has been said about Junpei's actor or Ken's. I'd imagine if they were different, Atlus USA would have already said so like they with P4A when Chie and Teddie's did.

@fluxwavez: I would actually be fine if they replaced Ken's VO because if he is supposed to be about 14 his voice change time would be at it's peak

#11 Posted by Bocam (3822 posts) -

I'm just here to say that the english voices sound like shit. jk

#12 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19388 posts) -

@uppercaseccc: Yeah, maybe his role specifically would need to be recast. I forgot to mention that Fuuka's voice change wasn't actually mentioned before P4A released, so Ken's VA might have very well been changed.

#13 Edited by Uppercaseccc (116 posts) -

@fluxwavez: Man Fukka's new VO is so much better than her old one I say this because fukka old VO just took me out of that game world so mutch

#14 Edited by thdemn (98 posts) -

I could have sworn Sho's VO to be Todd Haberkorn. His serious state at least sounded a lot like Prince Ling

#15 Posted by Superkenon (1506 posts) -

Vic Mignogna's still fairly active (even voiced Kou in the P4 anime, apparently), so I'd be surprised if they couldn't get him to reprise his role here. But who knows (the faint little you can hear of Junpei in this video sure sounds like him though).

@uppercaseccc: As much as I'm still tired of Wendee Lee, her Fuuka in P4A is definitely a lot easier to listen to. I kinda wonder if they did the VA switch there solely because P3-Fuuka seemed so universally reviled.

Voice for Sho Minazuki confirmed:

I was gonna comment that he sounds like Ling Yao from FMA: Brotherhood. I watch too much anime :(

Voice for Sho Minazuki confirmed:

I did like the voice for Death the Kid in Soul Eater, so I think he'll be a decent fit.

Also, unless they do some re-balancing for Yosuke, I get the feeling shadow Yosuke could be pretty overpowered. I always found Yosuke's awakened special move to one of the best, given how fast it makes you and how easily you could juggle characters with the automatic combo. If you have instant access to it in the shadow form, I can imagine a few people will try to spam it.

#19 Posted by thdemn (98 posts) -

I feel like I should do a could ear victory lap. That aside, I actually Akihiko has the ability to just take this, especially with his shadow form. Giving him more health, and his new juggle stuff? Aki's got the ability to wreck house.

And as long as Mitsuru and Aigis get taken down a peg, I am on board.

Not really. Keep in note, the game's been out in arcades for months and it's already at version 1.11. Sukukaja works very differently from how it did in P4A (its duration has been extremely shortened, for example), and one would still need 100 SP as a Shadow to activate it. Also, Sukukaja really wasn't one of the objective best Awakening supers in P4A.

You know what, I don't think I've bought a fighting game since MK9 but I might just say fuck it and pick this up. I came super close to buying the last one but skipped out because I'd never played an Arc game before and people always describe them as some sort of variation on "Complex". But goddamnit life's too short to not try this one out!

Ah, I remember his voice now from watching the english dub of xxxHolic.

@euandewar: I wouldn't necessarily call them more complicated than other games, just more going on. That said P4A was also my first ArcSys game and I found it fairly easy to pick up and start playing. It also helps that it's Persona so most of the characters play how you would expect them to; Kanji is the grappler, Yukiko is zoning/projectile based, Chie is heavy physical and rush down and so on. The tutorials and challenges in game are also pretty good, though I think they left out a few of the more nuanced mechanics like fatal counters which unless you're planning to get really into it isn't a big deal.

If you're interested in the story stuff you should definitely get it (I think they're doing a special edition that has the story mode from P4A in it for $10 more or something, might be looking into) as that stuff is fairly easy to plow though, and if you're interested in it because you want to try an ArcSys game this is one of the easiest to get into.

That Junpei and Sho footage is making my main, Kanji, look a little less appealing....

I can't wait to get in the lab!!!!!

Also, Sukukaja really wasn't one of the objective best Awakening supers in P4A.

I would say it was definitely one of the better awakened supers for low-mid tier players like myself, as it would allow for a quick and easy combo that could overwhelm similarly skilled players, but of course the higher end of the spectrum would deal with more advanced techniques. Hearing that it requires 100 SP and has been nerfed makes it sound more balanced.
