The first Persona 4 Vita commercial is up. Also, scooters.

I hope we get to have illegal street races with scooters.

#2 Posted by PerfidiousSinn (748 posts) -

I hope the whole hot springs scene has copious amounts of fully animated cutscenes.

I also hope that there is a boss battle that takes place on scooters.

#3 Posted by Lykos (66 posts) -

Here's hoping they animate the cross dressing pageant as well. That event NEEDS to be shown I full animated glory.

I wonder, did they say if they would change the way you move around the real world, like they did for Persona 3 on PSP? I don't see why they would, considering the power of the Vita.

Either way, I thought I wouldn't get it because I already played it, but I'm actually getting hyped about Persona 4 again. One of the main reasons I want to get a Vita.

Yosuke's last S-Rank: Instead of a fist-fight, it's a one-on-one scooter race. Whoever wins gets all the bitches.

They said it would be the exact same game as the original with additions. So the map movement will not be changed. Atlus actually said they disliked what they had to do with P3P because it removed so much of the experience of the original game.

Damn you video game for making me get a Vita.

@FluxWaveZ: That's good to hear then. The cutscenes and navigation in P3P weren't as entertaining without all the polygonal stuff going on.

#12 Posted by JackSukeru (5911 posts) -

At first I was like "What is Charlie doing in the back of the scooter pack when he's the leader? Take charge man!"

But then I was like "Oh right, checking out the girls. Nevermind."

Colours. Scooters. Japanese.

They could strip the game down to Persona 3 Portable levels and I would still buy it if they did this.

I...I...I kinda want Persona 5 more...

I loved the Endurance Run but it kinda made me feel like i've already played the entire game, and I dont know if the new content will make the game feel any fresher.

#19 Posted by mpgeist (607 posts) -

I....might buy a Vita for this...maybe. Hopefully it has other good games so I can justify it.

#20 Posted by CaptainTightPants (2834 posts) -

So whats up with the scooters?

Yep. 
 
There's some sick-ass moped action going on in that trailer, though.

As soon as that comes out in a language I understand I'm buying a damn Vita, can't wait!

I was guessing that'd be all but confirmed, with the new costumes and all.

Hell, I wouldn't care if they were the worst armor in the game!

It was that way in P3P, well except for the Maid outfits that gave huge SP and armour boosts...naturally.

The scooters has thrown me slightly, I really wasn't expecting that!

I would also like to see all the main NPC's like the teachers to get character portraits,who don't already. Its something they revised in P3P and I appreciated the little touch, even if that was more necessitated through the lack of animated cut-scenes.

It´s just me or does the calendar shows more days now? more than what it did before at least and that´s very helpful. My extiment for this game can only go but up.

#31 Posted by Starclopsofish (88 posts) -

Which calendar? I just saw one weeks worth of weather in the trailer.

#32 Posted by Video_Game_King (36272 posts) -

Man, spring 2012 is gonna be fucking awesome for Japan.

#33 Posted by Ketch (32 posts) -

This game is going to be awesome.

#34 Posted by Akimoto (13 posts) -

White haired guy riding a white Vespa? Please Atlus, don't go there, Gintama is plenty self referential on it's own, I don't think it needs you to reference it :p

Also, even though I know next to nothing about the Vita, I kinda want one now

#35 Posted by Dtat (1623 posts) -

I really really wish they would release this version on PS3.

#36 Posted by Starclopsofish (88 posts) -

A new, slightly longer trailer. (A whopping 44 seconds lulz.)

I'd really like to see some actual meat and potatoes gameplay footage though. Curious about the new gameplay mechanics and the new shops, etc.

Website Andriasang featured a few new screens today. Looks like the gang did get to go to the beach after all. With all these new events, I'm really hoping there's more time for social linking.

It would probably be similar to the Dead Island TNT. BLUE TRUCK VS RED TRUCK. CHARLIE VS YOSUKE.

#39 Posted by Nux (2357 posts) -

I won' t buy a Vita just for this game! $500 is too much.

#40 Posted by Addfwyn (1922 posts) -

@Nux: Where does the $500 figure come from? I only paid 25,000¥ for mine, and I am pretty sure the western rates are around $250ish?

#41 Posted by VisariLoyalist (2992 posts) -

video is down anyone have a mirror?

I believe it came from the Bombcast. I could be crazy though.

#43 Posted by Zereta (1366 posts) -

I need this

You are:p

The Vita costs 250.
