Seeing how Persona 3 and 4 was in the same universe and there was a possible sequel hook at the end of 4. If characters from those two games show up who do you want to appear? I would like Fuuka,Chie,Yosuke,Teddie,and Aigis.

#2 Posted by Apathylad (3066 posts) -

I doubt it.

#3 Posted by LiquidPrince (15950 posts) -

I don't think so, save for some cameos.

#4 Posted by thekingoftoilets (193 posts) -

 I would say no, but it will most likely (and hopefully) be placed in the same Japan. I hope they try to tie in the schools or chars from P4 & P3 with a field trip or news or anything.

#5 Posted by Catolf (2653 posts) -

it'll be college.. sitting in the middle of the schools.
 
Gekkokan high _______________ Whatever school they were in, in P4.
 
So yes, cameo's, and I believe it'll be about rescuing the protagonist of 3

#6 Posted by Fusionman (8 posts) -

Hey guys who think it will happen, can I know WHO you want to appear?

#7 Posted by Hourai (2795 posts) -

No.

#8 Posted by Ace829 (2083 posts) -

Maybe it'll be all the characters in both 3 and 4 in one of the greatest crossover RPGs of all time!?

#9 Posted by OwnlyUzinWonHan (1480 posts) -

Grown up Nanako, stealing someone's idea and calling it my own.

#10 Edited by mutha3 (4985 posts) -

There'll probably be some minor cameos.
 
Personally, I like the idea of Junes overtaking Jika Net Tanaka and having Yosuke be the one who sells crap on TV, except he's turned from a whiny teenager into a badass.
 
That would be pretty rad.

#11 Posted by Dtat (1623 posts) -

I'd want to see Aigis for one. Other characters I'm not so sure. I love me some Chie and Naoto, but it seems unnecesary. Wait, you know what? I'm totally all for more cameos! As long as the keep the same voice actors, bring it on!
#12 Posted by Catolf (2653 posts) -

Maybe it's one where Chie works with Dojima as a cop and you see her in a guest appearance. Or with Akihiko, in the Persona Anime he was a cop I do believe.
Kanji is running the textile shop (or his own custom doll shop) and making LOADS of cash and everyone loves him and he's happy (CAUSE I WISH IT SO)
and all the character's find their calling, or even run a shop you can go too and buy things from them.

THIS, for a series finale. A mixed party with both Junpei and Yosuke broing out would be rad.
#14 Posted by ArbitraryWater (11744 posts) -

It will be like the Persona 2 reference in P3 and the Persona 3 reference in P4: A name drop, maybe some cameos from some minor characters but nothing really major.

#15 Posted by slackrabbit (10 posts) -

If a chacacter were to return, it would have to be someone who has now grown and moved on. 
E.g. Aigis would be a strategic leader in the way that the School Principal lead Sees strategically in Persona 3 but was only a background character. 
Another option to throw people and add an 'air of mystery' is to have one of the characters as igors assistant....again in the background but you'd be asking yourself '??? Why are they there?'.
#16 Posted by tranquilchaos (575 posts) -

Cameos are always fun.

#17 Posted by metalsnakezero (2297 posts) -

The cameos would have to make sense in some ways. I think it's possible for Naoto and Rise to appear since they both travel around Japan due to there jobs and may run in to the P5 characters during their investigation of some strange events.

#18 Posted by Capella (68 posts) -

Definitely there will be cameos - that's how the series has always done it so far. Now if there were cameos from Trinity Soul, that would be weird/interesting (chronologically that show takes place after P4, so)... Really, I want Nyarlathotep and Philemon to show up again. Reunify the canon, Atlus!
 
Also on the Nanako for P5 boat.

#19 Posted by MattyFTM (14385 posts) -

I wouldn't be surprised to see cameo's, but nothing more than that.

Persona 5 should just be a direct sequel to Persona 4 IMO.

#21 Posted by rjayb89 (7722 posts) -

It's just gonna be like Case Closed but with Dojima.

#22 Posted by Fusionman (8 posts) -

Well Persona 4 DID end with a sequel hook. The TVs still work. Why would they still be? Does Izanami still have something planned? Who knows her death could be the start of her master plan.

#23 Posted by trophyhunter (5800 posts) -

Grown up Noniko

#24 Posted by masterherocard (419 posts) -

I doubt that p5 will be a direct sequel to p4 (though I do like those characters), but i'm sure that some of the previous characters will show up to some capacity. 
P3 characters showed up in P4, right?

No, thats the upcoming Persona vs. Persona 3, Fate of one franchise.

I highly doubt Persona 5 is actually going to be a Persona 4-2.
#27 Edited by AndrewB (7621 posts) -

Personally, I'm holding out for Persona 6.
 
Naw, they'll tone down the cameos but leave in at least one or two nods (like Chihiro showing up in 4 as sort of a throwaway character).

Dude Persona 4 sold like GOLD in America! Atlus could easily follow on the sequel hook for a quick buck. Except it'll be a good buck.

I'm certain people are more excited for an actual successor to that game and not a sequel, from the look of things.  And I would personally not like that very much as I disliked the path of the True Ending in Persona 4 and a continuation of that would be highly unnecessary, even more-so than what The Answer did in P3 FES. 
#30 Posted by AuthenticM (3732 posts) -

Cameos, yes, but nothing more.

#31 Posted by Fusionman (8 posts) -

Well we basically all agree that we're getting cameos. Who will be the cameos?

#32 Posted by Make_Me_Mad (3100 posts) -

An older Nanako will sing the Junes song in any commercials you see.

#33 Posted by RandomInternetUser (6789 posts) -

Cameos probably, but as much as I love the Persona 4 cast, I think it might be a bit strange to see them get their selves into another mystery.  I sure as hell wouldn't complain though!

This but I do, however, think that the TV salesman guy will be in 5.

Cameos, and who's in it depends on how far in the future it is from the other 2

#37 Posted by Hailinel (24834 posts) -

It's possible, but Atlus may also just do something akin to how Persona and Persona 2 were referenced in P3, with oblique references here and there that you would only really get if you were familiar with the games being referenced.  (Example:  The reporter " Trish" that is sometimes seen on the TV in the dorm common room, the names of the online game characters in the male character's Hermit S. Link.)

Igor will be in Persona 5.

Igor was in 3 though. He's a servant of a creature named Philemon.  Philemon is represented by butterflies and was in Persona 1 and 2.

I, personally, want to see some Endurance Run references in there.  
 
But to answer your question;

This. You'll probably run in to "Officer Satonaka" or something.
#41 Posted by InTheEnd (268 posts) -

Why does everyone want Nanako to be the next main character? It seems redundant as you're just making her a silent protagonist. I thought the whole idea behind the main's was to create a blank slate that the player fills, influencing the game through that character.

Who's saying they want her to be the next main character?  I believe they're saying that they want a cameo of an older Nanako, which I wouldn't mind at all.
#43 Posted by papercut (3499 posts) -

3, no. 4, yes.

#44 Posted by Chris2KLee (2336 posts) -

I could see a cameo, like in Persona 4. Rise and Naoto are possible, as their backgrounds would allow them to travel to other towns more.

#45 Posted by PenguinDust (12522 posts) -

If I was allowed to have my input in the development of the game, I would choose for high school age Nanako from P4 to be a member of your party in P5.  However, I have a feeling all we're going to get is a couple of cameos from 3rd tier characters (non-playable social links & teachers).  

#46 Edited by MikeFightNight (1110 posts) -

Mark my words that you will for sure see Rise on T.V a poster or bump into her in the "big city".   
 
As someone who played Persona 4 and just picked up P3P I think i'm liking the characters in 3 a little more then 4 (they both have there strengths).  I never played through 3 before but I can see a lot of similarities between the two as far as story and characters.
 
Also I really hope that P5 comes out on the Ps3 and is not some exclusive PSP game.

#47 Posted by nick69 (625 posts) -

There are most likely just going to be cameos of p3's and/or p4's characters. 

I don't want a returning cast, I want a brand new story. 

#48 Edited by ryanwho (12082 posts) -

I wouldn't mind grown up Nanako because that would require a significant leap into the future. 10 years at least from when P4 took place (2011? Don't remember).

#49 Posted by Talon64 (174 posts) -

The Persona 2 games had characters return from the original Persona game, so I'd like to see one or two characters from P3/P4 return for P5. But that's if it's in the same universe, who knows?

#50 Posted by EVHKwick (452 posts) -

Technically there were references to Persona 2 in Persona 3 through the Hermit S-Link, so I'd say it's damn possible.
