Persona 4 Golden has bug catching, kinda like Animal Crossing

#1 Edited by FluxWaveZ (19818 posts) -

So catching insects in P4G gets you bait for use in the game's fishing element.

Now, this is a really minor thing to make a thread about, and this might seem silly, but I can't help but compare this game to Animal Crossing even more (like I had mentioned before):

  • There's gardening.
  • You build relationships via Social Links (you do the same in AC by talking to neighbors).
  • P4G will let players visit other towns.
  • Different seasons accompanied with related events.
  • The different seasons have different outdoor music.
  • Side quests that involve helping other residents.
  • And now, there's fishing.

I don't know, it's silly, but the similarities are there. I guess when one of the game's focus is simply living a normal life, similarities will arise to a game that's only based around that.

Also, Rise Kujikawa has a new, third tier evolved Persona, like everyone else. It's called Kouzeon and looks appropriately ridiculous. 

Also, since there are screenshots of Rise appearing in battle with the others, I'm guessing she'll have skills similar to what Fuuka had in P3FES that players will be able to use.

@punisherkaos: I think Rise's naked, angelic self is thrusting her soul into Narukami's to revive him.

Maybe I should just go ahead and buy a Vita now.

@Hailinel: I thought the same thing, but since they revealed the white vita, I think I'll wait as long as I can in case that comes to the US.

Persona 4 + Animal Crossing = Best game ever?

This version of Persona 4 keep sounding better. Anyone know if the original VA's are going to be there for golden? Would be jarring if the new scenes has different actors.

Also, your Social Links will call you and ask you to retrieve the Game Boy they lent to a friend.

And then after it turns out that you needed to talk to five other people who subsequently managed to borrow the Game Boy, you're rewarded with some sweet stationary, right? And then they passive aggressively tell you to send letters to them that they actually can't read because that's considered the social thing to do?

I always thought Persona 4 was missing a bug catching mechanic.

Sounds like fun. This is still the only game to make be even consider getting a Vita.

No Idea why I already had this image saved to my hard drive but it seems relevant.
