@hunter5024: In North America, right? I'll take that bet. I'm not 100% certain, but I still bet it'll be PS3 exclusive because all current signs point to that.
FluxWaveZ's forum posts
There is no precedent for that, except these two precedents which totally don't count.
I wouldn't call P4A and Catherine precedents given how much their situations differ from Persona 5's.
Some story details (POTENTIAL SPOILERS BELOW):
Persona General posted some bullet points made on 2ch about arcade mode concerning Sho, Persona Sho, and Adachi. Anons translated and this is what they say.
Minazuki's bullet points:
His puns are reminiscent of Ikutsuki
A Plume of Dusk can be sensed from him
When defeated by Teddie, he mentions "drawing out (Teddie's) hometown"
When defeated by Sanada, he says "If it's your friends, they're coming, thanks to you guys!!"
Often mentions "him"
He appears to be jealous of those who possess Personas
The last boss for Yu, Naoto, Teddie, Aigis, Junpei and Sanada.
Persona Sho's bullet points:
Persona is Tsukiyomi
A Plume of Dusk can be sensed from him
Says to Labrys "You and I are the same, that's why I chose you".
His objective is to "remake the world"?
"What that child desires isn't revenge."
The last boss of Hanamura, Mitsuru and Labrys.
Adachi's bullet points:
He appears in Yu's, Sanada's and Yukari's scenarios.
Minazuki and Adachi have nothing to do with one another (They're aware of each other but they're not in cahoots)
When asked if he's a fake, he replies that he's the real deal.
"If you spend too much fighting, you might not be able to return things to normal"; he appears to understand the truth of the situation.
He appears to have business at the top of the tower.
Sanada and Yukari have no idea who he is.
Labrys: "I won… I won! But, that reading… Is that a Plume of Dusk? No way… You’re definitely human… What the…?"
Sho: "Heh Heh Heh… That is correct. I am just like you. That is why I chose you. But it seems you were nothing but a hindrance in the end. Of course, it does not matter… It is already too late."
Sho: "There is nothing you can do anymore, it can’t be undone… The world will now change!!"
What I'm most curious about is if they're gonna stick to their anime/ almost-chibi style character designs or are they gonna be more realistically proportioned as seen in the characters in Catherine. Either way, it's not that big of a deal since I'll playing it regardless.
If this Dengeki PlayStation interview leak was accurate:
- The game will feature “life-sized” character models in the environments to make it look more realistic.
It will be announced for 360 when they give it a Western date, it runs on the Catherine engine which has been ported to 360 ezpz
First off, Persona 5 does not run on Catherine's engine. Catherine's engine was Gamebryo, and Katsura Hashino straight up said in 2012 that they ditched that engine to build their own for the next Persona game in order to streamline development.
Secondly, I heavily doubt Persona 5 will be coming to the 360.
Why would they make a game thats twice the length of Catherine? Have you played previous persona games? Its gonna be 50-70+ hours with alot of dialogue, probably spanning another year in whichever school system they put it in
Persona 1 and Persona 2 weren't 50-70+ hour games unless you grinded like a crazy person.
The first live stream is currently being held since the game's been released, so I thought it'd be a good idea to make a thread compiling live stream pages and certain videos of P4A2:
