New Gameplay Details

#2 Posted by Aus_azn (2224 posts) -

Gah, I want this game, but really don't want to drop for a Vita to get it..........

#3 Posted by Video_Game_King (36272 posts) -

That's it. I have to get a Vita. There's no way I can get the PS2 version, knowing that this is floating out there.

I feel the exact same way. And here I was all ready to plop down money for a copy on ebay. Oh well, I guess patience is a virtue or some crap like that.

Augh. I have the PS2 version, but never finished it. (I'm in the same predicament with P3:FES and P3P for the PSP.) What. Do. I. Do?!

#7 Posted by wolf_blitzer85 (5256 posts) -

I played the hell out of the original and even though you get to see the gang in sweet skiing gear, I think I'll be able to live without it.

Now quit dicking around and give us Persona 5 damnit!

They've been working on it and they've teased in the latest Famitsu that they'll announce it in 2012 so expect a 2013-2014 release for Persona 5 in North America.

...can't wait. Still haven't played P4, but after watching the ER for a second time, I can't fuckin' wait.

@FluxWaveZ: I just heard they were teasing something for the next issue of Famitsu so fingers crossedn

Also: Hashino isn't directing P4:The Golden. Itou is.

SOLD. I cannot ignore this.

So yeah, 2 years after the endurance run ended you mention still not having picked up a copy of P4 (a 10$ title) and in the same breath manage to state you will be buying a 300$ handheld just for the P4 experience.

Edit not to be a jerk, but this was probably the most outrageous claim ive seen all day

#18 Posted by alternate (2702 posts) -

By the time Vita is cheap (about 2 years) I might just be ready to play through P4 again.

#19 Posted by Bigheart711 (1253 posts) -

I'll buy the Vita version since I loved playing the original P4. Also excited for P5 (even though not much is revealed as of now).

#20 Posted by TwilitEnd656 (617 posts) -

I am almost aroused by all these additions. Almost. Regardless, shut up and take more of my money now, Atlus! Just take it all!

#21 Posted by Starclopsofish (88 posts) -

I think the most interesting bit of info here is that the ski event takes place in January. Have they added a full new month to the game? And if so... a new dungeon?

He didn't watch the Endurance Run. His first exposure to P4 is through the anime. And frankly, I can't blame anyone for wanting to wait until the Vita version comes out to play the game because of all of the new content.

#23 Posted by Knave (548 posts) -

Considering that there will be 1.5 times more voice acting than the original, i wonder what else they're going to add. Maybe the social links will be voiced now? I don't see how else they would make so much more voiced content.

#24 Posted by WatanabeKazuma (989 posts) -

New Personas? Susano-O looks a bit goofy as he was so an afro is no biggie, he can't look further away from his depiction in earlier games. So will these shiny new Persona's replace their evolved forms as they were or are these simply an additional third option?

#25 Posted by benjaebe (2783 posts) -

I've played a lot...a lot of Persona 4 and was going to get a Vita for P4G anyway, but definitely seems like Atlus is adding enough to the Vita version to make it more than a cash-in and worth another playthrough or seven.

#26 Posted by MikeHawk (382 posts) -

I just finished Persona 4 last week. But somehow, Atlus finds a way to make me hyped for Persona 4 again. I'm hopeless...

#27 Posted by Beforet (2921 posts) -

I'm not too sure a ski trip makes this as much of an "instant buy" as it does for others here. Really, after the confirmation of no female protagonist I found myself deflated on the project. I might still buy it, but I won't buy a Vita for it like I bought a PSP for P3P.

It seems all that what you would want from the game is a female protagonist and without one you wouldn't be getting it regardless of what they would add.

#29 Posted by Beforet (2921 posts) -

@FluxWaveZ: Well, I've played the game 3 times and experienced it, when factoring in the ERs, 4 1/2 times. Can you blame me for needing some specific incentives to invest another hundred hours?

#30 Edited by FluxWaveZ (19334 posts) -

@Beforet: What you would want from it doesn't matter to me. However, I think it's unfair to point out specific things people are excited for in the new title and say that that's not enough incentive for you when your mind is set on a single, missing element that you would want to be there.

Well it's not. Sorry for saying so.

#32 Posted by ValiantGrizzly (498 posts) -

Oh man. I keep telling myself I won't buy a Vita.. but man.

MAN.

This is changing my mind. Never got a chance to play Persona 4. Watched the ER twice, and still would absolutely love to play this.

#33 Posted by LordXavierBritish (6320 posts) -

Oh shit, is that some Demon's Souls-esque online integration I spy.

sorry can't hear what you're saying over this dude with A SUN FOR AN AFRO

It sounds like the latter, based on a Tumblr translation I read.

The plot of P4 wouldn't work nearly as well with a female protagonist; to many events work as they do because the protagonist is male. Too much would have to be changed to get a female protagonist to work.
#36 Posted by Beforet (2921 posts) -

@mutha3: That's a pretty swag-ass afro, I'll admit. Do we have any idea what triggers the "Tier 3" personas, or do they just replace the old evolutions?

@Hailinel: Yeah I know, but it's still kind of a bummer. I guess it just shows how much the writing improved from P3 to P4 that they can't make major changes like that on a dime. Still, a bummer none the less.

This is probably true. The characters in p4 have way more defined roles and positions in their relationships-- changing the gender just wouldn't work, without some serious rewriting. The characters in P3 were distant enough that this was a non-issue

(Example: Look at Yosuke, now keep in mind what his relationship with the Protagonist is like-- now imagine if the protagonist was a girl.)

#38 Posted by Animasta (14691 posts) -

the only way they'd get me to buy this game and the vita would be a female protagonist, or allow me to date Kanji

#39 Posted by Creamypies (4064 posts) -

Shame this is only coming for the Vita... cos there's no chance I'm ever gonna play it unless it comes out elsewhere.

#40 Posted by Velamo05 (118 posts) -

Was it ever said if they were making a US release for Persona 4: the Golden? From the last I had heard they were only doing a Japan release/version D:

Though I guess it makes sense that they would anyway even if it hasn't been confirmed yet, I think there is actually a pretty sizeable Persona fanbase in the US.

#41 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19334 posts) -

@Velamo05: Persona 4: The Golden will be released in North America. Doubting that would be silly.

#42 Posted by Velamo05 (118 posts) -

@FluxWaveZ: True, and now I have to buy a Vita XD

#43 Posted by okand (73 posts) -

Will it be too much to wish for a timely European release?

#44 Posted by OldSnake (16 posts) -

.....I really hope Sony allows us to streamline our Vita games to our PS3s....
