Spoilers for P4:A but not really, if you listen to the bombcast

Persona 4:Arena seems to be a great set-up for persona 5. If that's the case, the cast of great characters from persona 3 and 4 will return in 5.

The only question is: How much would you pay for every reference, spoken or writen, of the imposter ''Yu Narukami'' be replaced by Charlie Tunoku?

I would put down 10$ for DLC that did that, how about you?

None.

#3 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19350 posts) -

$0

And I still don't agree that P4A sets things up for Persona 5.

#4 Posted by laserbolts (5323 posts) -

I wouldn't pay for that.

#5 Posted by YI_Orange (1151 posts) -

Nothing. That's not his name. His name is either Yu Narukami or something meaning "Main Character"

#6 Posted by Hailinel (24961 posts) -

I wouldn't pay anything for that. Or rather, it doesn't matter what price it is, because I wouldn't buy it.

#7 Edited by Zripwud (247 posts) -

Yu Narukami is pretty cool in The Animation, so I'm keen to call him that. Even on my next playthrough! Borrowed VITA or PS2 emulator... we will see!

#8 Posted by Karkarov (3131 posts) -

I am thinking I would pay zero dollars. In fact, I am thinking for me to tolerate it at all Atlus will need to pay me.

Why not? It seems pretty clear that's what they're doing.
#10 Posted by ImmortalSaiyan (4683 posts) -

None. I'm fine with the name he was given. If I could change the name it would be to what I named him, not Charlie.

Fuck you guys, I would pay for that

#13 Posted by LordAndrew (14426 posts) -

Can I pay to have him renamed "Horse Armor"? That would be a worthy purchase.

#14 Posted by JeanLuc (3586 posts) -

No. His real name is fine. Plus its neat for Charlie Tunoku to be like our secret nickname for him.

How is it clear? They could do another spin-off game or they could further explore the story in the eventual P4A iteration.

#16 Edited by IrrelevantJohn (1074 posts) -

If Persona 5 is a continuation of 3 and 4 I would be fucking disappointed. One of the reasons why the persona games are awesome is it's charm, it won't work a second time.

Also he will never have a name. He was called Souji Seta before the name Yu Narukami was even used... You could even say there are 2 impostors now.

Another spin-off maybe, but not another fighting game. They can't use the same excuse for having the characters fight each other again.

This is assuming there will be another P4A, or any other game spin-off/sequel before P5. It's more likely that Eerie Voice and Malevolent Entity will not be seen again until P5.
#24 Posted by Bocam (3761 posts) -

@JeanLuc: At the end of Golden there's an epilogue that takes place a year after the true end. Yosuke mentions that the last time Yu came back during those "May vacation days" (Golden Week) that there was too much going on to hang out. P4A's story only took one day. Also, this is an Aksys joint, there's going to be another game.

#25 Posted by j0lter (237 posts) -

I would prefer that Persona 5 has its own new set of characters, but it makes references to previous characters or even introduces them for brief moments like in Persona 4 when they visited the old high school from Persona 3 with Chihiro.

#26 Posted by Hailinel (24961 posts) -
@Bocam There can only be another game if Atlus partners with Arc System Works to make another.
#27 Posted by punkxblaze (2987 posts) -

I'd buy that for a dollar.

Hmm, doesn't mean those other days have be told in a fighting game. And yeah I assume there will be some sort of sequel/upgrade for P4A but I figure the story will be less important or not even a factor. Like I said, you can't give the same excuse for why they fight each other. In fact there's no reason to fight each other. The direction they seem to be taking the story wouldn't work that well as another fighting game. But maybe I'm wrong.

I don't see how that's more likely. To me, it just seems that fans want the story to be continued in P5 but it doesn't seem like anything supports that. I'll take the levelheaded approach and won't take assume any determined position.

It's not level-headed to come to a rational conclusion?

I've yet to see anyone explain how P4A's story beats will be a fundamental part of Persona 5 through evidence, so I do not believe that is a rational conclusion at all.

Who? you mean [put your name here] that's the MC of Persona 4 right? at least it's to me.

The next game will just be a straight up visual novel or a Sims-like game.

Persona 5 should be it own thing with its own characters that MAYBE collides with p3/4 near the end.

P4A sets up P4A2, not P5. Heard it here first folks.

#37 Posted by htr10 (336 posts) -

This thread is proof that the Giant Bomb community has lost its way. Every response should be 'yes, I would pay a minimum of $100, possibly thousands more, to have him named Charlie or at the very least, murder with my bare gnashing teeth anyone who refuses to acknowledge Charlie as P4's main character's name'. This should be every response to this thread.

The game ends on a cliffhanger with no P4A2 or other spin-off announced. Maybe there will be, but that's not enough to suggest that this won't carry into P5.

And it's not enough to only think that P5 is the possible continuation for P4A's story hooks. The fact that a game's not been announced doesn't mean anything, as if we take announcement timelines into account, Persona 5 was announced before anyone even knew about Persona 4 Arena.

I'm not taking a stance either way, so I'm not saying that P4A won't be continued in Persona 5, but I'm not saying it will either as there's nothing to base that thought upon.

#40 Edited by falling_fast (2230 posts) -

I'd put down a few dollars for that, because why not.

but really, I hope that all the characters in persona 5 (except for Igor I guess) will be new.

also, maybe add in the option to make the main character female like that psp port of persona 3 had.

Aside from a cliffhanger, previously noted, that is obviously meant to bridge into a new game?

You're going in circles. I already stated that that new game could potentially be Persona 4 Arena 2 or another spin-off and you've not stated anything that could prove to the contrary except for a weak argument revolving around announcement dates. Heck, they could leave it a cliffhanger for a number of years without doing anything with the P4A set-up.

The cliffhanger isn't a weak argument. What I'm suggesting, however, is a possibility that you seem to think of as foolish.

He may be called Yu Narukami, but he is Charlie Tunoku in my heart. I don't need to pay for DLC to tell me that!

This is the Persona series. If it's relevant to the P5 storyline, they will sum up what happened in P4A in excruciating detail, probably three or four times.

There's really not a whole lot to say, anyways. It's basically a single P4 dungeon with a twist.

Also, I wouldn't pay anything for Charlie Tunoku. He's Yu Narukami for me now. I still say Charlie sometimes when referring directly to stuff in Persona 4, but I've played enough P4A (and the anime will make it even easier) that he's just Yu to me.

@Hailinel: @FluxWaveZ: To your arguments, based on Arc's track record, I think a Persona 4 Arena 2 is likely. I can envision a scenario where P5 is it's own thing and this theoretical P4A2 continues the story of those characters. Maybe the central antagonist will be the same across both games, but the P5 cast and P4A cast may not meet or deal with it in the same area. I personally wish P5 would continue the P4A story and center around the existing characters, but I wouldn't put them off introducing a new cast in P5 and using P4A as a way to let people enjoy the past crew.

#48 Posted by Encephalon (1266 posts) -

None. Charlie Tunoku is a fun in-joke, there's no need to take it to extremes.

#49 Posted by mutha3 (4985 posts) -

I wouldn't pay for it, because that's a bullshit proposition, but I'm pretty bummed that they don't allow you to name him in P4A.
