Persona 5 main staff revealed(guess what)

#1 Posted by mutha3 (4985 posts) -

Man, today is Persona day in Famitsu. 
 
Well, it was incredibly obvious, but Famitsu revealed who the main staff behind Persona 5 will be. Hashino as the director, Meguro for sound and Soejima for art direction.
 
I guess its nice to get a reminder that P5 is a thing that actually exist. Expect more news at TGS.

THIS IS GETTING BETTER AND BETTER. All this Persona 4 news, one of my favourite games of all time, and now Persona 5 news.

See you at Spaceworld

It s great.

Even though they just announced that it feels good to know that it's in familiar hands. No surprise really given the great amount of attention the series has received over the past three years.

Glad they got the band back together but can we get some info on the game

I'm not sure if they'll say anything at TGS. Does Atlus really show anything there? From what I remember they seem to just have major announcements through magazines.

SWEET.

Man I hope the game has graphics similar to Catherine. I also hope the game feels "open world-y" in its design. Imagine getting out of your room, walking in the house, then exiting the house and riding your bicycle all the way to school, then go up the stairs to your classroom, all of this without a single loading screen. Yeah, that would be pretty cool.

@neoepoch: Its even more uncharacteristic of them to drop a name, and then stay radio silent. This the first they've directly come out and acknowledged P5 in something like Famitsu.  They DO usually show something there, btw, just not much in the way of announcements
 
Anway, Persona is definitely big enough of a name these days to appear in TGS. Actually, a P5 would probably be one of the bigger titles.

The final piece is having Yuri Lowenthal, Troy Baker and Johnny Bosch on the VA team.

When you said "main cast" I half expected concept art of the main characters. 
 
But this is cool too.

Ah ok then. That makes sense. Much obliged.

Man, I want Persona 5 already. I can't wait for more info!
#17 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19308 posts) -

Wow, and I totally thought Persona 5 was going to be absent, yet again, at TGS this year before today. Maybe that's won't be the case...

#18 Posted by Sooty (8082 posts) -

As somebody that has never been into JRPGs until Persona 4 I cannot freaking wait. Atlus are just like no other.

#19 Posted by Cloudenvy (5891 posts) -

Shocker!

#20 Posted by Marokai (2808 posts) -

I'm just happy to hear anything about Persona 5. It makes the other news about Persona related jazz today much more enjoyable to think about, IMO, knowing that P5 is moving along.

Maybe on the P4 stuff, but P5? I don't think we'll hear about it until next year.

So do we know what systems will get it?

At this point, anything but the PS3 (and maybe 360) would be insane.

I'm not saying that saying that you do. But I'm not gonna say you don't.

Alright, I'll send the check, give you and your team a year and than Endurance Run.

Like everyone else, am super excited at the possibility of there being something, anything, about P5 at TGS. We shall see. It's good to see that it'll be in the same good hands as always.

For the record, Atlus won't be having any official presence on the show floor itself, judging by the attendee listings on the official site. Of course, there's always room for them to make an announcement in conjunction with the show timing-wise, but probably not on the show floor proper. Naturally, since I'll be going, I'll be among the first to hear if that changes, but I'm personally not expecting anything Persona-related there aside from anything the figure makers might bring and maybe stuff from Arc Systems, who will be there.

@mutha3: Yeah, I just caught wind of that, too. There will probably lines from hell to wade through, but I'll try to give the game a whirl while I'm there and write something up about it. Might as well, at least.

@Pepsiman: I would like, no need confirmation of whether or not the 'free pray' thing still exists in the TGS build.
