Do you think that there will be a P5-related Easter Egg in P4G/P4A?

Absolutely not.

If anything, it would be a reference to a side project like a Catherine 2 or something, but I doubt there'd be that either as it seems that, at least after Persona 4 Arena, the Persona team will be actively working on Persona 5. I can't see them as the type to hint at such an important title like P5 in a game of theirs.

In P3P, you could find Vincent, who had a few lines of dialogue that hinted about what Catherine was going to be about.

Do you think that there will be a similar treatment in any of the upcoming Persona games, ostensibly for P5?

Vincent is going to be a hidden boss a la Demifiend

Maybe they did it in P3P I would think such easter egg should be in P4G rather than the fighting game where there isn't a place to do it subtly.

@Bocam: I wanted him to be a playable character so much. His Persona could be a block.

Only if it was somthing like they did with Vincent in P3P.

#8 Posted by supamon (1333 posts) -

It would be cool but I doubt it. I'd rather they make a Vinny/Jeff on a couch easter egg!

Yeah, that's all I meant. Nothing in the story or anything, just something on the side.

Did mini-Mitsuru ever appear in Persona 2? (Either one counts.)

@FluxWaveZ: ...I don't know how you'd make a Catherine 2, but I'm totally ready for more.
#12 Posted by Phatmac (5726 posts) -

Nah, I doubt it.

#13 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19344 posts) -

@TooWalrus: A while back, Index did refer to Catherine as a new IP they were planning to do more with, so it's a possibility.

@Video_Game_King: No but the Nanjo group from the 1st Persona showed up in Persona 3.

If you watched the TV a bunch in the lobby of the dorm in P3, there were references to characters in P1 and P2 mentioned.

well in persona 3 the mom was named after persona 2 so who knows

And Inaba is Masao from P1's last name.

It would had to be something that is subtle.

Probably not, but god I hope so. I would welcome anything to do with P5 at this point. I love Persona 4, but I've been ready to move on for years.

#22 Posted by Dagbiker (6976 posts) -

If there is, we wouldnt know it until P5 comes out.

That's not necessarily true. When "Man Drinking Alone" showed up we could all tell it was the Persona Team's new game.

Right, But I doubt they would announce a game like that.

What do you mean? That happened before Catherine was teased or anything. 
 
I mean, I don't think it'll explicitly state "Hey, Persona 5 is coming out", but just a small hint to get discussion going before they announce it for real.

Considering we wont see the game till probably 2014 I don't need a teaser reminding me I don't have the game yet

I agree 100%! For Pete's sake, I'm re-watching the P4 endurance run for the fifth time now... (it's the perfect background noise when playing something).

#30 Posted by SaberSaurus (4 posts) -

Don't know if it counts as an Easter Egg but, Maybe an alternate Opening?

#31 Posted by jebara (64 posts) -

How about both, but P4G is the more likely of the two.

#32 Posted by Dizzyhippos (1456 posts) -

Probably not, your assuming theres anything done on P5

Atlus has been talking about it for a while. They've said whose working on it, that it'll be on a custom engine, etc.
#34 Posted by Hunter5024 (5688 posts) -

I don't think they will, but it sure would be cool. I feel like with how little information is out there that the earliest we could possibly expect p5 is holiday 2013 for Japan. That's too long.

ya but there's a difference between talking about all the stuff your doing and it being ready for public consumption, although for just an easter egg I could see them just having a character walking around in the background or something. If there is one I really hope its the kind that we don't realize is there until P5 is out
