New screenshots show off title system

#1 Edited by FluxWaveZ (19346 posts) -

New screenshots posted on Siliconera show off the game's online title system where you can customize your title with preset words:

Players unlock words to use for their title as they play the game and fulfill certain objectives. Other new images posted show off the game's Challenge Mode, main menu, story dialogue and the fact that this guy is back and has become a detective.

Wonder how many members of the "Chie army" are going to use that dreadful "I ♥ Chie" title.

What's so dreadful about it?

The fact that it is a display of admiration for Chie Satonaka.

Will this game just come out already!

#8 Posted by MikeGosot (3227 posts) -

Carnal Chie Bro Fist will be my title.

#9 Posted by InfiniteGeass (2054 posts) -

I ♥ Yukiko is more like it.

We are no longer friends from this point on.

I love the Menus in this game. I assume it works similar to how all titles work in that it is a cosmetic label. Is this correct?

I'm actually not into fighting games, but this looks neat :]

#13 Posted by BigChief (503 posts) -

"Steak" better be one of the words you can use.

#14 Posted by Brodehouse (9952 posts) -

HAHAHAHAHAAHA HOLY SHIT

Bake 'em Away Toys.

Holy fucking shit.

GOD that show is basically the uniting strand of an entire generation.

Ha, I do not actually detest Chie (very much), but I will make it my own personal goal to utterly destroy anyone I play against with that title.

Yeah, the titles are purely cosmetic.

So is it gonna be lame where you can only use certain words in certain places or will I be able to write:

Can Beat To Chie.

?

It's not specified, but I'm pretty sure that you could use that exact combination. I'm assuming all words and terms (there will be around 3,000) will be able to be placed in any order in the three phrase sections.

@FluxWaveZ: Excellent!

Makes me wish Theatrhythm did it, or at least had dumb words like "bro" to choose from. My current byline is the positively tame "Friendly and deceptive Thief", ugh.

#19 Posted by JeanLuc (3585 posts) -

Gah I just want this game to come out already.

You need to think more outside the box.

#21 Posted by Akrid (1356 posts) -

Wow, that's a fair amount of 'care-actors'. And that's a really good title system!

#22 Posted by Apathylad (3066 posts) -

"Where's Yukari & Junpei?" is gonna be my title. That has to be in, right?

#23 Posted by RetroVirus (1473 posts) -

Here's to hoping for secret endurance run references!

#24 Posted by DonChipotle (2763 posts) -

God Fist Naoto

#25 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19346 posts) -

@RetroVirus: If there was a venue for ER references in a Persona game, this would be it. Though, I can't really think of any specific ones that could be directly associated with the ER instead of a general P4 phrase ("Funky Student", "Mysterious Fox", "Bufu"...).

Well just "Endurance Run" would be a good start. I would personally love a Hiimdaisy reference with "Disco" "Ninja" "Frog" though.

I hope they do the right thing and start everyone's title off as ghoul

They could use charlie, just thrown in there for no reason

"Charlie" and "Tunoku" would be great ones.

nah, pixie; ghoul was level 30 in strange journey for cryin out loud

#31 Posted by Cincaid (2956 posts) -

Probably alone in this, but I'd rather see a PS3/X360 release of P4:Golden than this. But wohoo for the fighting fans out there. :)

I'm not a fighting game fan by any means (I mean I enjoyed the story in mortal kombat but that's it), but this does continue the story of P4 and P3 where golden does not so...

You'd rather there be one game that exists instead of two? Plus, this is a Persona 4 sequel.

#34 Posted by Cincaid (2956 posts) -

@Animasta: Sounds like we're in the same position then; I too enjoyed the story in MK, but barely touched it after that. Might pick this up when it's cheaper, but I honestly can't see myself paying full price for it...no matter how big of a fan I am of the Persona franchise.

this story mode is also like, 40 hours or something crazy

#36 Posted by Cincaid (2956 posts) -

@FluxWaveZ: @Animasta: Hehe, fair enough. Also, I'm a sucker living in EU, so I'll have to wait even longer before it's released over here. By then I probably know more about the game, and if it's worth picking up!

#37 Posted by AngelN7 (2970 posts) -

Tres bien! too bad I suck(?) at fighting games to make use of those titles.

#38 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19346 posts) -

@AngelN7: Then you could have your title be "I cannot beat anyone".

#39 Posted by Phatmac (5726 posts) -

This is great! Can't wait to make some inappropriate titles. Or just stick with I <3 Chie.

#40 Posted by AngelN7 (2970 posts) -

@FluxWaveZ: That's too obvious there must be a "You cannot beat me!" card so when people see my 0-0 win/lose ratio they will know why.

So much this, I can't believe they included something like that.

#42 Posted by natetodamax (19207 posts) -

As much as I love Persona 4 (and 3 as well), it's hard for me to get too excited about this because I'm not a big fan of fighting games.

How about "Dominatrix" "Banana" "Head" or "No" "Dinner" "Tonight"?

#44 Posted by metalsnakezero (2297 posts) -

There got to be a "Cast Bufu" somewhere in the phase menu.

it's three words!

it should be Don't Cast Bufu

#46 Edited by IchiroYagiza (442 posts) -
I think this one speaks for itself...

Too bad you can only put 3 words...

#47 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19346 posts) -

@IchiroYagiza said:

They're phrases and not necessarily words, so phrases like "C'est La Vie" or "Captain Emo" would only take 1/3 of the available title sections.

#48 Posted by IchiroYagiza (442 posts) -

@FluxWaveZ: So... a possibility for that phrase can happen... (probably not, I guess... but if it becomes possible, that will be awesome XD)
