Should Philemon have a bigger role in Persona 5?
Philemon in the Persona series acts as a guide, observer, unlocks your personae, and somewhat of a guardian to different extents in each game.
Philemon has the most appearances in Persona 1 and both Persona 2 games. His presences is shown through his butterfly form in Persona 3 and Persona 4.
Philemon has many forms and he is Igor's master. He test humanities worth to exist and believes they can be saved. So my question is what should his role in Persona 5 be?
What would you like Philemons role to be? Do you wish to learn more about Philemon and his part in everything that has happened in Persona world?
I don't care about him. I haven't found Philemon's presence in Persona 3 or 4 to be lacking or to be a good thing. Then again, I haven't played P1 or 2.
Persona 2 is likely the best in story in my opinion and can get you emotional at certain parts. When Persona 2: Innocent Sin comes out for psp I suggest picking it up if you have a psp.
I hope they port it as download for the PS3 though... It's a fantastic game!
I had not even realized he was a character, but this is likely due to the fact that I've never played the first two (or three?) games. I've been meaning to play them on my PSP, but I've misplaced my memory stick...
My first impression is "yes," because if he's as important to the universe as I perceive, his presence is more than welcome! However, maybe the mystery enhances his character.
Warning for you: Persona 1 on the PSP, being an older gen game can really get annoying.... Hardest one of them all as well. Persona 2: Innocent Sin will be out at the end of this year for the PSP with better player support. I suggest reading up on the first one or watching tube videos. Don't want to spoil Persona 2 though.
Well, seeing how you've played P1/2, you do realize that the Nyarlothep/Philemon storyline wrapped up neatly?I guess an appearance isn' t totally out of the question,though.....As for your spoiler in the OP...
It seemed pretty dang obivous to me that the reason Philemon had Tatsuya's face when he punched off the mask is not because he was some bizarro world Tatsuya(no idea where you got that idea from!) but because Philemon is a reflection of Humanity, and thus the person he's talking with. He had the same hair colour as the MC in P1, remember?
I would like for them to work a few references in, maybe a nod here or there. He doesn't have to be a huge part of the story, but it would be nice to throw him in there as a subtle link to the first couple of games.He has never left, the butterfly motif is all you need really. It pretty much alludes to the fact that he is still around, albeit behind the scenes.
