Not to mention that it's very difficult to see which are links vs just regular text in the description box.
@wemmick And this is why I (and others) have been asking for y'all to bring back the red links (and names, and really wherever it extended to in the old design) since the day we got this new look.
Not only would it bring back some lost personality, it would also fix this problem (which extends to the forums and the wiki) of not being able to easily distinguish between and underlined text, unless you hover over them. Please bring back the color! I haven't been constantly posting about this issue here since that would be annoying, and I assumed it was something you've been looking at. But nothing's really happened on that front to my knowledge, so I'm mentioning it once more.
Not to be all negative, I have to say the new video page looks much better in my eyes. And as long as you also bring back the embiggen feature or something similar (which you've acknowledged, thank you), I'm all good on that front.
I'm VERY conflicted. On one hand I'm immensely happy that this game is finally being brought over, but on the other, NISA's track record is very spotty, like you alluded to, and so I really hope they do right by the game, and the series as a whole.
And yeah, I'm also looking forward to that panel tomorrow. It sounds promising and exactly like something I hoped would happen in a case like this; that they'd bring on some of the very talented people who worked on the previous titles (many of whom are currently working as freelancers, and no longer beholden to XSEED).
Speaking of which, I hope this tweet from Rean's English voice actor means what I think it means:
The same wonderful booth director behind the first 2 games was on board for the trailer, so I had no doubt she would get exactly what she needed out of me!
Thanks a lot for your hard work, folks. There's a lot I like about the redesign, but here's something I hope could be brought back, improved, or implemented:
I really, really miss the red text. It looked great and made for better legibility, in my opinion. And right now, linking to text is from underlined text, unless you mouse over it.
This problem extends to the wiki. If there's, for example, something like a term or a character that has its own page on the wiki that I've wanted to highlight in my submission, I've usually linked the word to it. Sometimes it's for a perfectly valid reason, and sometimes I did it for laughs, like I've seen many users and crew members do (in their reviews for example). Now it looks like, from the outside looking in, that I've just been underlining words seemingly at random. I'm probably guilty of overdoing it, but I personally thought it was useful, and a lot of fun to do. It certainly got me to browse the wiki a lot more.
If there's something else I don't especially love is how large the top slot is on the front page, but I'm just reiterating what others have already said. The crew is seriously gonna have to up their thumbnail-picking skills if this is what we're stuck with, since very often the image looks so stretched out and pixelated while on desktop (which is what I'm using 95% of the time) that it's kind of painful to look at.
Finally, I'd also like to request the "Mark As Watched" feature. It's something I've wanted for a long while, and now that we're revamping things, this could be the time to implement it. I'd get a ton of use out of it, at least.
Really digging the animation! I love the art style they've used here. And it's something of a dream come true for me personally to hear all three main singers from their respective games (plus Lotus Juice!) collaborating.
These are all fresh off a live stream Atlus held at Tokyo Game Show 2018, earlier today.
Here's some gameplay from the opening moments of the game. It's all in Japanese, but I think you'll get the gist, especially if you've played the first one.
And here's a very lengthy and tough fight against an FOE from later on in the game (fight starts at 9:40).
They also previewed some songs from the game, the latter four seem to be battle themes.
0:00 Cinematic Tale
1:39 Invitation to Freedom (Persona 5)
2:49 Remember, We Got Your Back (Persona 4)
3:53 Wait and See (Persona 3)
4:54 Pull the Trigger (Persona 3 Portable)
We were also shown the results to the character popularity poll that was held earlier this month, in which anyone with a Twitter account could vote.
Persona Q2 is coming out in Japan on November 29th, so in about two months. There's been no word on the Western release (that's surely happening) as of yet.
If I had to guess, we'll probably get a date or a time frame at the very least, around the time that the new Dancing games are released. When they were revealed, they were initially slated for early next year, but they've since been moved to December 4th, 2018.
