GET HYPE MOTHERS(New Persona 4 project?)

#1 Edited by mutha3 (4985 posts) -

 Okay, lets try that again:P

 http://www.mayonaka-tv.jp/

Mayonaka tv is the Japanese name for the midnight channel, for those unaware!Seems like Atlus is working on something Persona 4 related. Persona 4 Portable? probably, but I'm holding out  hope that its something entirely new. I could live with a P4-2. Or hell, outside the realm of video games. Like....a P4 live action movie(would be funny).

Or a P4 anime.(maybe.)
EDIT:
What we know:
-Page source links back to Sony.JP. Definitely isn't a 3DS title.
-It seems something called" the P4A committee" is involved, Persona 4 Anime committee?

The project is called "Persona 4 animation". Its anime, folk. But is it an anime movie or a series?

And once more, the timer is counting down to 04/11/2011, the date that Persona 4 starts on.

This is fantastic news.  I don't even care what it turns out to be, it's still fantastic.

I can't get massively hyped for a PSP port tbh. 

#5 Posted by Underachiever007 (2468 posts) -

I still find this interesting, despite the lack of swearing.

#6 Posted by BrickRoad (702 posts) -

Persona 4 was my favourite RPG of recent years. I'd love it to be P4-2, but even if it's PS4P that'd be cool too. Also, you should've put Motherboyxxx'ers, just so Arrested Development fans could nod to each other.

#7 Posted by MiniPato (2741 posts) -

Boo if it's an anime retelling or prequel to Persona 4. I already beat Persona 4 and watched someone else play through Persona 4. I don't want to watch Persona 4 again.

#8 Posted by CaptRoFL (77 posts) -

I dunno.
Seems like an ordinary TV channel to me, OR IS IT?

We don't know what it is yet, though.

Valuable information lost the first time:

-The counter will run out at the same day P4 takes place
-Swearing is not allowed in thread titles on Giant Bomb
-some guy was disappointed at giant bomb because of the thread
#10 Posted by AlisterCat (5575 posts) -

It's counting down in seconds, and the second equal roughly 41 hours. So it'll expire in 2 days... the 11th. The colour scheme, the date... it can't not be Persona 4.

#11 Posted by keyhunter (3207 posts) -

I refuse to care about anything less than a P5 or a P4-2

Come on Adachi prequel...

#13 Edited by Soren (291 posts) -

Shitty cellphone game revolving around an origin story for the scar on Kanji's temple or bust.


But seriously, i'd be cool with anything other then another goddamn remake at this point.

Edit: So if this was a spin-off would that make it a spin-off of a spin-off of a spin-off?


#14 Posted by Venatio (4491 posts) -

P4:FES, P4P, P4-2? I'd buy any of those


P4 anime? I'd watch it

Any P4 game this year puts Atlus on what, 7 titles this year?  Catherine, P2, both Devil Survivor games and both Sting games plus this.

#17 Posted by Asian2Go (181 posts) -

Anything new relating to Persona 4 is A-OK in my book.

Its a bit of a stretch to consider sting titles the same as Atlus' though! you might as well include all the game Atlus publishes if ya do that:P

And you forgot Radiant Historia(shame on you).

Dude that would be awesome, he needs his backstory filled it.
If this is an anime it would be the first one I've watched since I was a high school freshman.

As someone who has not played P4, and whose backwards compatible PS3 does not work well (and has no PS2), I'd love a P4P. 


But I'd also love a Persona 4-2. 

Now is when I need to pitch my idea for a P4-2 to Atlus. 

This time, you play as Funky Student (voiced by Ice Cube) as he travels across Japan alongside the crew from P4 (mainly Kanji, Chie, and Yosuke), and the newly voiced Mysterious Fox (who now goes by Funky Fox (or FF), and is voiced by Ice T (also, his only lines are stuff like "yip")) as they solve mysteries and stuff.

So you basically want Scooby Doo in Japan?
#25 Posted by Make_Me_Mad (3102 posts) -

I think the real question is, if it's a remake, do we get a female version of the Protagonist?

And who would you be able to nail now?  The possibilities are endless.

#26 Edited by thehexeditor (1404 posts) -

I emerge from my Persona 3 Portable Manic complete run marathon session to this news? Can't be a coincidence.

I think it will be Persona 4 3DS.
If it is, I bet that there will not be a new female protagonist route but instead additional bonus content for the original game (that doesn't involve new main story hooks or anything like that) as well as a completely faithful adaptation with 3D effects.

Adachi's backstory would only be interesting if presented in the form of a social link. Actually, any of the character's stories would be boring unless they were presented in social link style.


Persona 4 Portable with new girl protagonist and new Social Links including Jeffrey and Vincent social links. Get on it!

Yeah. I'm guessing it'll be a PSP port, though...
#29 Posted by Fallen189 (5010 posts) -

Persona 4-2. You play a samey game with magical dress changes.


Realistically, I'd ancticipate P4 NGP, or P4P. I doubt it's a new project with all the indications pointing towards the Persona 4 license.

I'd LIKE to see a prequel focusing on adachis backstory. Or Dojima.

@endaround: Yeah, except with the writer(s) of Persona 4, it'd actually be funny and enjoyable, unlike Scooby Doo. 

Also, there would be no shady real estate deals, unlike in Scooby Doo.

Is it wrong that I kinda want A P4-2?

#33 Posted by endaround (2146 posts) -
@mutha3: Atlus was in the process of acquiring Sting, I thought that went through but then with Atlus's holding company stepping out front  I'm not sure.  But they are basically just another studio for Atlus at this point.  As for Radiant Historia, I'm talking about games coming out in Japan. Radiant Historia came out last November in Japan.  I mean its questionable if P2 will come out in the US this year.
#34 Posted by mutha3 (4985 posts) -

Guys.

Taking a look at the source page reveals this.





3DS? It also says "P4A Commitee".

It may just be me, but that sounds like a weird japanese title.
#35 Posted by MiniPato (2741 posts) -

Persona 4-2. This time you find the real real REAL killer!

Pfft. I haven't turned my PSP on in like 3 years. And a PSP port of P4 isn't going to change that. Also I'm having de ja vu.

My moneys on P4:P. It makes the most sense.
I'd love to see a proper sequal, but the explosion in the community if there's no ER will be horrible to live through.

Especially if it's going to be in the same style as P3P. :\

@mutha3: I had a look at the source code. Can't find anything conclusive. Tried to download and take apart the flash file but I can't seem to get it to download it. One of the js files is 'sony.co.jp' and there are links to sites like  http://www.persona-ts.net/
#41 Posted by SubwayD (501 posts) -

If this is a PSP port, I'm going to have a blow out in my pants.

P3P has been so good.

What? Lame, I was hoping it'd be for a system I already have! 

Well, I suppose it'd be as good a reason as any to buy a 3DS...

I don't want a P4P (unless it's for the 3DS and, even then, I don't want it to turn out like crap in the presentation department like P3P). I don't want a P4-2 at all. I definitely don't want a P4 live action movie or anime. Still, it's interesting.

The abbreviation here is P4A, though. It at least, probably isn't a PSP port.

Hm..? Why does a sequel sound less appealing than a 3DS port to you?

 Just curious.
#46 Posted by thehexeditor (1404 posts) -

Also it seems like whoever filmed the footage for that "Do you know Mayonaka TV?" video was also responsible for the live action Catherine commercials in Japan (the ones where they interview single people and couples) Does anyone have youtube links to them so people can see how similar they are in terms of camerawork?

#47 Posted by Hailinel (24856 posts) -

For the people that want a sequel over a remake, in what way would a sequel be possible?  All of the threads are tied up at the end of the game, and they don't leave any room for something like P3 FES's "The Answer" (which was terrible, by the way.)

#48 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19346 posts) -
@mutha3: Because I don't want a direct sequel to Persona 4. I think the story was good enough on its own and it would just feel weird to revisit the same characters and locations that you got to know in the first one and left in the end of the game.
#49 Posted by eldiax (632 posts) -

OMG I'm so hyped for this even though I haven't the slightest idea about what will this actually be!

They could easily just make up a new conflict but bring back the same characters. If they were gonna do it, they could do it.

I don't think they will. It's not Atlus's style. They might do a portable version for PSP or 3DS, but the next full Persona will be a completely new game.
