The game has been announced. And it's never too early to begin unreasonable speculation and compile ludicrous desires for things the game should include. So therefore, here's things I want to see in this game:

  1. Alternate costumes: I want Bancho-chan Souji in this game.
  2. Mitsuru as a playable character with Execution finisher.
  3. Galactic Punt. 'nuff said.
  4. Rise as the game's system voice.
  5. Kanji must say "Get bent!" as a win quote.
  6. Speaking of Kanji, his specials should have a dedicated Manliness Meter.
  7. Takaya the Pale Japanese Jesus as a sub-boss.
  8. Tanaka as proprietor of an unlockables shop.

That's all I can think of off the top of my head. What do you all want, no matter how unreasonable the demand?

Where's Jack Frost, ho?!

Here are some scans.

So from the looks of it, 10 characters total, going to be kids v kids with their personas as special attacks. ArcSystems definitely had a bit of work on the character designs, giving them a lot more, er, sharper edges. Also it will apparently have a BlazBlue style story mode meaning fight, dialogue, fight, dialogue, some potential decision making that might let you skip a fight and/or give you a bad or gag reel ending.

Playable Namatame.  Even if it's only two months later, and he'll probably still be in jail for all the kidnapping, I want him in there somehow.

Playable Dojima and Nanako would be hilariously nonsensical.

All of the S. Links from the games as assist characters.  Call in Kou and Daisuke for a tackle/barrage of balls, and call in Devil Nurse to... distract... the competition while you wail on them.

Edit: Also, playable Velvet Room characters.  Elizabeth, Margaret and Theodore, and Igor needs to be a secret boss.  And from the looks of those scans, Chie has God's Hand!  Fantastic!

@Turambar: that could only be so far, they might add in more characters (this isn't supposed to be out for a while is it?)

I want adachi, either as a playable character or a boss or both or whatever. and Naoto. and Akihiko.

AND MAYBE IGOR

Yo anime fighters!

This is such a bizarre announcement. I hope the fighting game community picks this up.

#7 Posted by Kraank (74 posts) -

I want Akihiko. He's captain of the boxing team, so that fights into a fighting game lol.

#8 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19371 posts) -
  1. Minato needs to be a character.
  2. I want there to be a single player story campaign ala BlazBlue that doesn't suck. Maybe even with some RPG elements.
  3. I want at least 20 different playable characters.
  4. Of course, I want the fighting system to be good and appropriately complex.
  5. I want a good online component.
  6. I want Fuuka, Teddie and Rise commenting on matches at once, maybe even talking with each other. So not just one commentator.
  7. I want at least 12 different stages.
  8. I want some good music.

Whoa, there. The game isn't coming out until next year. There's no way you can just assume there'll be 10 characters from scans at this point.   

Also it will apparently have a BlazBlue style story mode meaning fight, dialogue, fight, dialogue, some potential decision making that might let you skip a fight and/or give you a bad or gag reel ending.

Where did you get that info?

CHIDORI!!!

I think her hatchet-on-a-chain weapon would help her stand out especially since I love Axl Low from GG. And her persona wants to kill her so that's a plus.

She's practically an Arc System Works character already.

@endaround: Thanks a lot! 
 
Oh, and two more wishes: 
 
  • Combined with my hope that the music is good, I hope my two favorite game composers, Meguro and Ishiwatari working together, make it super good.
  • I hope Kanji (and Yosuke and Souji) have their cross-dressing clothes as costume alts.

I want to be able to name the MCs what ever I want in my game. Let's be honest, who here isn't going to call him Charlie?

Whoa, there. The game isn't coming out until next year. There's no way you can just assume there'll be 10 characters from scans at this point.

The console version may have more than 10, but, remember that the arcade version is Spring 2012, which is maybe early or late spring, the screen shots show only 10 slots, Arc Systems games don't tend to overload on characters the way Capcom fighting games do (the original BlazBlue only had 12 characters), so, hoping for 20+ characters is probably pretty unreasonable. So I don't think it's crazy at all for him to assume that there will be 10 characters when the screen shots at this time point to such and a lot of development time has to be dedicated to nothing but balance changing and testing. I'm not saying by console release we won't see maybe a bit more, but, I'd check your expectations at maybe being lucky to see even 15 characters by the time it hits consoles, and be completely prepared to see only 10 or 12.

Don't forget the possibility of DLC characters, as was the case for Continuum Shift.

As long as Shinji and Tanaka are in the game, I'll be happy <3

True. Though, it is hard to say if they would just continue support with DLC characters on the first one, or do a second version of the game first before doing that. Either way, though, yeah, we could still start with a console version only having maybe around 12 characters, and still end up getting another 4 or so through DLC. So I could see maybe by the end of any/all DLC maybe having NEAR 20, but I still can't picture Arc System and Atlus wedging in over 20 characters into the game, let alone for the release. Not that I would complain though if they did, least so long as all of the characters were balanced as worth it, the Persona universe certainly has the characters to support it after all.

Edit: you know, thinking about DLC characters, I'd be curious if they would limit DLC characters the way they're bound to limit the starting roster. Rather, what I mean by that is - this is rather story driven, taking place 2 months after P4, which takes place however long after P3 (I forget and am too lazy/tired to look it up right now), and as such some characters would probably be off limits just because they wouldn't make sense, but, I'd be curious if for DLC characters they would care less about keeping it with the timeline/story and just add ones that would be fun to see. I imagine not, but, I'd kind of like to see that myself. Kind of how in Guilty Gear XX games they started adding secret characters that would make no sense as being playable from a story perspective (such as adding dead characters, or earlier versions of characters such as Order Sol).

#19 Posted by ImmortalSaiyan (4690 posts) -

If they do a Blazblue esque storymode I hope it's written by atlus. The writing in that mode for Blazblue was awful. Persona deserves better.  

#20 Posted by SuperWristBands (2266 posts) -

Based on those scans I am going to assume Aigis is in the game and that's all I want.

This game announcement has made me so excited.

#21 Posted by ImmortalSaiyan (4690 posts) -
@Sasran
Me too. I'm more exicted for this then I have been for a game in a long while. Feels wierd.

Yes! That's the exact feeling I have. Probably has to do with Persona 3 being my #1 RPG and if asked, would be among the first titles that pops into my head of what my favourite game is. Then there is the whole Arc System Works making it so it'll probably be amazing. It all leaves me feeling good.

#23 Posted by ImmortalSaiyan (4690 posts) -
@Sasran: I feel that way about Persona 4. I love the idea of being able to revisit those characters without the iffy proposition on a direct sequel. It's a odd idea but feels right.

I want to main Adachi.

I doubt they will throw Persona 2 characters in, at least not initially. They would make great DLC though.
#28 Posted by Capella (68 posts) -

Too bad it's only Persona 3 and 4, but still. Persona 4 is one of my favorite things. Blazblue is also one of my favorite things. Please, nobody wake me up, I want to dream this forever.

My wish is: a musical collaboration between Shoji Meguro and Daisuke Ishiwatari in there. Somehow.

So no Hitler?

Also how about a Mara X-ray move?

#30 Posted by LetsRockBaby (241 posts) -

I want a well-written story mode and playable Adachi. Think it'd also be neat if there was some sort of Ishiwatari-ized version of Mass Destruction. Nothing would get me more in the mood to kick some ass than "BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY" coming out of my TV.

I want mister morooka in the game. And his super is the panty check.

Probably anyone that didn't watch the Endurance Run, like me for instance.

Funky Student/ Mysterious Fox combo as a playable character.

#34 Posted by PenguinDust (12554 posts) -

Two words:  Maid costumes!

#35 Posted by Master_Funk (738 posts) -

Mysterious Fox vs Koromaru would be awesome

#36 Posted by Bocam (3785 posts) -

@TeflonBilly: Mara would be Adachi's special.

#37 Posted by Winternet (8025 posts) -

As long as I can play with Nanako everything will be just fine.

#38 Posted by Vexxan (4623 posts) -

Chie's all I need.

#39 Posted by Vade (393 posts) -

Do not need story mode.
Do not need arcade mode.
Do not need the game to be faithful to the source material. 
 
I just want it to play more like Guilty Gear than BlazBlue.

#40 Posted by Drifballoon (30 posts) -

Mysterious Fox with a tiny hitbox and a healing super to make it the most annoying character to fight but extremely satisfying to play as.

#41 Posted by TehFlan (1944 posts) -

Junes should be a stage, and Nanako should be singing "Everyday's great at your Junes." repeatedly for the entirety of every match fought there.

#42 Posted by kingzetta (4307 posts) -

Is Adachi going to rape someone as his finisher?

#43 Posted by Cornman89 (1579 posts) -

MC must speak only in hmph's.

#44 Posted by makari (600 posts) -

Secret stage is the Meat Dimension. Think Final Destination from SSB except the void is filled with meat produce at different stages of production.

#45 Posted by Simulacrum (462 posts) -

Igor needs to be playable.

#46 Posted by Make_Me_Mad (3108 posts) -

Just remembered, but I kind of want Mitsuo to be in it.  I guess he could use his shadow in place of a Persona...

#47 Posted by ShadowKing7 (753 posts) -

I want Mysterious Fox up in this bitch!
#48 Posted by drac96 (673 posts) -

I want Shinjiro to be in this so much more than any other character.

Charlie's name should be Charlie.

I'm pretty sure the Famitsu scans displayed his name as Shujinko, which is just Japanese for "Protagonist."

If he is given a name, I wouldn't be surprised if they used either Souji Seta or Yu Narukami.
