this is so weird: 
 
  

  
 
  
  
Seeing Yu talk in the anime was a bit of a mindfuck, but seeing the portrait from the game? Man.  Hope they give him more expressions than his blank :| face. Less crazy news: Animated cutscenes! Glad to see they won't just be relying on stills and portraits like I originally thought.

I think the stranger part is how their mouths move in the non-anime cutscenes. That shit ain't right!

Is it weird that this just makes me want to play this game less?

lol, I dig it. Gives me Fire emblem vibes! It does look mad awkward.
 
It seems like Yosuke is giving Charlie some shit about his obsession with Nanako near the end there. Awesome.

@mutha3:

Social Links give me enough Fire Emblem vibes in Persona 4. (I'm aware that this game probably won't have Social Links, but I'm just saying.)

I'm diggin' it.

#7 Posted by Rehtayne (127 posts) -

Not bad. Pretty excited to play through this story mode.

#8 Posted by Canteu (2821 posts) -

Did you know, the MC of persona 3 was voiced by Yosuke?

MC could always talk. He said persona's names. That's totally talking!

#9 Posted by MikkaQ (10288 posts) -

Ew weird, Charlie don't talk.

#10 Posted by Animasta (14691 posts) -

I'm so excited

#11 Posted by Hailinel (24802 posts) -

Lol at people that still call Yu "Charlie".

Kidding aside, it doesn't surprise me, as the animated portraits fall in line with ASW's BlazBlue games.

#12 Posted by Vexxan (4620 posts) -

Not digging the talking portraits.

Cool, but I'm still reluctant to buy AN ARCADE CABINET

Well you don't have to for this

#15 Posted by dungbootle (2457 posts) -

I'll only be upset if the English language Charlie isn't voiced by Vinny and Jeff simultaneously.

Man, Brosuke's Japanese voice sucks.

This is the fighting game, not the Vita re-release.

you don't need an arcade cabinet either! the arcades are not getting this story mode as far as I know :)

#21 Posted by spazmaster666 (1967 posts) -

While he doesn't "talk" in the sense that he has no voiced dialogue in the game, he certainly has dialogue and he certainly speaks (i.e. when he calls on persona during battle) so it's not like they has no voice in the game at all.

I actually knew that. I just didn't know what to edit into my post.

So JYB is gonna be his VA? that's A...

#24 Posted by Nux (2360 posts) -

It's not that weird, he spoke all the time in the anime. What's going to be weird is him speaking in the english verson. Personally I like his japanese VA and I don't know how I feel about an english VA for him.

Are we suddenly pretending that Charlie is not his name now? :|

I was never gonna play this game, but now I'm extra not gonna play this game!

I am pretty used to Charlie having a voice since I watched the anime.

I will never call Yu 'Charlie' XP

That's because his name is Charlie. The Endurance Run is canon and I won't have anyone suggest otherwise, by punishment of death ... or possibly harsh words.

#31 Posted by metalsnakezero (2295 posts) -

Yu got some expression in him and the moving mouths aren't so bad.

I know! He sounds like a bitch! that might fit Junpei, but Brosuke's more of a dick, while Junpei is a bitch..
 
Speaking of VA,  I do hope they give Charlie a new VA. I don't want him to sound exactly like Adachi!

Guys: Bosch has some range. He can do more than his Izaya voice.

#34 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19339 posts) -

Yosuke's so hyped to get back in the Midnight Channel. I bet he's the killer.

#35 Posted by Commisar123 (1792 posts) -

I don't know works for me, at least in Japanese because I heard him talk in the anime. It will be stranger in the English version as I have no idea who they will hire for it. I mean the only people I ever heard reading Yu's lines are Jeff and Vinny. Still that's fine with me, he just sounded really depressing.

Probably not, based on what some Atlus USA guy said:(

He does? I think the only VA I can pick out more easily than him are Yuri Lowenthall and Nolan North.

I don't think so, he's still in jail.

Not that I know of, but if there is it's totally Yosuke.

Tell that to Atlus and you're likely to get a Bufu to the face.

#44 Posted by JeanLuc (3584 posts) -

I've watched the anime so hearing Yu talk doesn't bother me. The mouth moving thing is totally weird at first but really I'm fine with it.

#45 Posted by Devoid (429 posts) -

Having their mouths move when they talk is fine (it's giving me BlazBlue nostalgia) - as long as they stay the hell away from that 'idle animation' stuff that Record of Agarest War: Zero had.

..Which it looks like they aren't doing, so I'm bringing this up for no reason.

"He can talk!"

"He can talk?"

"He can talk!"

#47 Posted by Phatmac (5726 posts) -

I'm really glad that their letting Charlie speak. During the Endurance Run, Charlie's silence during certain cutscenes really bothered me. I'm starting to dislike the silent protagonist choice in games, especially ones that want you to be emotionally engaged. I'm hoping that Persona 5 and more Atlus games have more talkative protagonists. I'd go a step further and give the protagonist a last name so his friends can actually say some part of your name. I love how Mass Effect does Shepard's style of a protagonist, I'm glad Charlie is talking more is all I'm saying.

#48 Posted by Pepsiman (2477 posts) -

Ha, I noticed this just going through the standard arcade mode storyline, yet never thought people might actually be interested in hearing about it. Living in Japan puts me in such a strange bubble when it comes to stuff like that.

#49 Posted by Winternet (8019 posts) -

That isn't Charlie. It's just some guy who looks like him.
