@vinny Don't pack your PS3 yet !

Oh man this last hours was absolute terrible in terms of reactions to this whole event. But man still so far away....

It looks rather dark and grim I just hope they won't cut Social links and stuff.

Get hyyyyyyyype for emancipation!

Endurance run? Endurance run!

Man, I'm such a slave. Sat there in mumble for like 6 hours leading up to this and the trolling was PHYSICALLY PAINFUL.

But you know what? I'll probably end up buying Persona Q AND P4A2, maybe even that silly dancing game. So in the end, they announced 3-4 games I want, one of them being Persona-goddamn-5.

Good for you Atlus / P-Studio. You got me : )

#13 Edited by Marokai (2629 posts) -

It's honestly hard to get super excited about something that will probably be 2015 for the US, especially since they showed so little.

NOTHING STOPS THE ENDURANCE RUN!

I'm glad those twenty minutes spent sitting through Japanese Teddy's inane rambling didn't go to waste. Yay Persona 5!

Persona was always dark. P4 was the lightest in tone but it was also the most popular. I really hope they go back to the darker themes. Also there is suppose to be an interview event right after this. I will try to update but I think the people on gaf are so fast with this stuff it might be faster to read minute to minute update there.

gaf is excited as wll xd

I think we could see a worldwide release with that one. But we will see.

Also: Persona is trending worldwide on twitter :P

#26 Posted by SubwayD (443 posts) -

I hope they've got Atlus US and whoever does their EU work on board. Get them working on the translations right off the bat.

Persona is big enough for a global release... right?

Oh no. It's going to be 2016 for Europe, isn't it? :(

#27 Posted by Cincaid (2948 posts) -

I reaaaaally hope we don't have wait too long for a western release, hopefully early/mid 2015 at least. And I guess this is a perfect excuse for me to pick up a PS3 by then, if it turns out it's exclusive and not coming to 360. Not too miffed, since it'll probably be quite cheap by then, and I have plenty of PS3-exclusives to look forward to!

#28 Posted by BenderUnit22 (1361 posts) -

PS3? Guess I'll have to have that thing hooked up even longer than I thought.

ps4 release about 4-5months apart and that was before p4 became as big as it is now. I would say NA will get it about 4 months after we do. In the main time, I wait for next winter.

#30 Posted by jimmyfenix (3676 posts) -

The PS3 will be beside the PS4 for the time being. So many games !

#31 Posted by Royce_McCutcheon (177 posts) -

Watch it turn out to be garbage now.

#32 Edited by DukesT3 (1853 posts) -

Well OF COURSE its for ps3 a full year into the ps4 cycle! That team don't give a FUUUUUCK.

No, I mean, seriously this is fucking HYPE and sadly I'm sure Winter '14 is for Japan only and and the States won't see it until August '15 =(

Hopefully I'll beat p4 on the vita till then.

Winter typically means Q4.

#37 Edited by SpunkyHePanda (1521 posts) -

I am so slave.

You could say they didn't show anything, but it was all I needed. One of the coolest teasers I've ever seen.

I'm assuming all those chairs mean more high school?

#38 Posted by Maystack (898 posts) -

No, I only sold my PS3 a few months ago. I am a fool!

#39 Posted by SamDrugbringer (1099 posts) -

PS3 FUUUUU

Are they going to make me buy a PS3 to play this? I bought a PS2 (My old one had broken years ago) to play Persona 4....

#40 Posted by Leonshade (61 posts) -

If it was Q1, why wouldn't they have announced an exact release date? I'm thinking Q4.

#41 Posted by Superkenon (1189 posts) -

This is the beginning of the end, and I'm pretty psyched.

And hungry as hell for info.

#42 Edited by Darji (5295 posts) -

Oh man I just hope my Launch PS3 will still hold out until then. There are a lot of JRPGs coming next year^^

#43 Posted by MentalDisruption (1618 posts) -

I am a slave p5, you know me so well. Man there's no way I can wait until 2014. I really hope they shock us and do a worldwide release. Waiting for this and the next Arena is going to kill me.

#44 Posted by MildMolasses (3192 posts) -

I'm glad to see that this is actually happening. The only other word had seen about the event was a Persona rhythm game which is probably not was people are looking for.

A little late to the generational party though, aren't you, ATLUS?

#45 Posted by Mayu_Zane (602 posts) -

Looks like the new color scheme is red.

I am not sure if this means the game's going to take on a more 'horror' vibe.

#46 Posted by Happenstance (455 posts) -

@darji: Thats what im slightly worried about. I already had to replace the bluray laser once this year.

They also announced a chibi RPG for the 3DS starring Persona 3 and Persona 4 characters.

Persona 4 came out a year after PS3 launched as well, so it's not surprising.

Who knows, maybe the Gaikai stuff will be up and running when the game finally comes to the west and you'll be able to play it on PS4.

#50 Posted by golguin (3644 posts) -

They have to make a 360 version as well right? The announcement was made for the Japanese so there would be no reason to mention the 360 version in the trailer. Someone tell me there will be a 360 version.
