2 TOWNS AND COMBAT MOPEDS GAME OF THE YEAR.

I'm curious how they will work this stuff into the time frame of P4's story, or is it getting more months or something like that?

That's it, I'm getting a goddamn Vita somehow, fucking Atlus. So any news about a european/north american release? Anything at all? If only they'd release this on PS3, anyone think that's possible?

This is day 1 for me.

So yes, the party members will be able to use their scooters in battle as a special attack. A neighbouring town and the sea will be available to visit once the main character gets his license. The game's new opening animation will be produced by the animation studio "Mad House".

 I assume this is Naoto asking Yu for permission to bring her bike out

Persona 4 battles on motorcycles? Sign me up!

And there's my justification for wanting a Vita.

hrm, seems I may be alone in not being thrilled about these scooters. I like everything else, it just seems like the scooter is a weird gimmick.

@FluxWaveZ:

I'm getting a Katamari vibe from some of those screens. I don't want a Vita but I want to play this!

#13 Posted by JeanLuc (3565 posts) -

Stop adding new features into one of my favorite games Atlus. I don't want to buy a Vita dammit!

There were parts in the game where you would skip plenty of time. Maybe in those pockets of free time?

Need to hear NA release dammit.

Now all this game needs is gratuitous sex and violence. Gratuitous sexy violence.

I hear that Yu-Gi-Oh 5Ds stuff is pretty crazy.

Here's a translation thingy, it tells us about "Bike Pursuit".  It works like the follow-up moves in P4, except its ON A GODDAMN MOTORCYCLE(and with party members not in your current dungeon exploring team).
 
Pretty clever way of involving  party members you don't use!
 
@Beforet
Not quite! Yu-Gi-Oh is about teenagers beating each other through cardgames on motorcycles!

I can't wait to have Persona 4 trophies on my PSN account.

#19 Posted by WilltheMagicAsian (1544 posts) -

Man, I really can't justify a Vita just for this game, maybe if it gets "homebrew" support in the future I'd be more keen to pick one up.

SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!!

#21 Posted by Vexxan (4612 posts) -

There's no limit for how awesome this game will be.

I thought of that as well, but I am mostly curious if they confirmed anything. I think more than anything I am just hoping they incorporate the events into the game well and are not just random things. Most event like stuff in P4 had some nice character development if it didn't push the main story further so I am hoping that the new stuff feels like that and not just there for the sake of being there.

Jesus, is it really that much to ask to get this on the PS3 PSN store?

Sony could be making so much more money.

#24 Posted by Raye (44 posts) -

Wow, this feature completely came out of left field! Damn it, Atlus... I'm looking to SAVE money, not reasons to spend it. ;-;

#25 Posted by Dizzyhippos (1353 posts) -

Not to be a wet blanket but have they even confirmed this outside of japan?

#26 Posted by Sanj (2342 posts) -

Wait, a new town!? Scooters?!? Need to play this. GIMME A WESTERN RELEASE DATE.

I am sure it will be. Persona is like Atlus' only RPG series to do almost-out-of-niche-territory sales outside of Japan I believe. I wouldn't worry much about it at all, we've gotten everything else Persona related that has came out over the past few years.

Why do I suddenly have the urge to listen to Quadrophenia?

#29 Posted by Simplexity (1382 posts) -

Fuck off Atlus stop trying to make me buy a Vita, it is not going to happen god damnit.

#30 Posted by CornishRocker (397 posts) -

Dammit, Atlus, I swore I'd never get another handheld platform.

Sweet ass scooter.

I know right. Why even make the game unless there's smokin hot, underage, cartoon snatch waiting for you around every corner!

#33 Edited by AxleStukov (114 posts) -

Naoto... how did you even get an Uzi as a teenager in Japan?

You know on second thought, considering they're managing to smuggle bikes inside the TV world, that's probably not the first question I should be asking.

#34 Edited by FluxWaveZ (19305 posts) -

@AxleStukov: Well, she has a pistol, a Uzi, a shotgun and probably more, so it must be because of her status as ace detective or something.

#35 Posted by obcdexter (569 posts) -

All right, all right! I'll buy your damn console!

... and charge it to a biiiiiitch

Don't mess with Naoto. She'll fill you with holes.

Is this game longer than one year to squeeze in all this new stuff?

There were a few significant time skips in Persona 4 where these events could take place in. Perhaps some normal days could simply be replaced by these events, too.
