Basically nothing happens in this trailer and I'm still overwhelmed.

I like the design of the protagonist (turtlenecks are underrated) though I wish they'd shown a bit more about the game's world/themes.

That is awesome news about the PS4. This game is the main reason why my PS3 is still hooked up.

Basically nothing happens in this trailer and I'm just a bit unsure of what makes this a trailer.

Set in the big city presumably- which is the case with the other Shin Megami Tensei games.

Pure Stereotypes- More distinctly awkward up front than previous leads? If they emphasized that - and you had to develop from a more awkward- less neutral place- that could be interesting.

Fire Glasses!

All of that is round about speculation- and though I'm glad to have a bit more subtlety than the Persona Q trailers (Which are fan service heavy - which the game will be- which is fine.)- I'm hoping future trailers are a bit more informative than the first and second one's have been.

Is it weird that I'm really interested to see what weapon types the characters use?

It's going to be hard to beat the folding chair.

Has Dan played a Persona game? Or has it been dismissed as anime bullshit? Super looking forward to P5. Hopefully Atlus won't release it 4-10 months later in Europe..

The emphasis on isolation in the middle of the big city reminds me a lot of The World Ends With You... albeit with a not-whiny protagonist (I assume?).

@fobwashed: So you didn't even make it to your first battle? :P I'd say that you didn't put in enough time but, seriously, some games just aren't for everyone. Besides, if you watched the Endurance Run of P4 you pretty much know what this series is about.

wonder if there will be any notable differences in ps4/3. i was going to buy a ps3 for this...and maybe demon souls.

animation looks good! i don't remember seeing that many people on screen in the persona 3 or 4.

Well, one of them, I literally haven't even gotten around to opening. I played 3 hours or so of that PEZ or FEZ or whatever one. I just don't have the time to commit to a super long RPG but I really wanted to so I bought them in hopes of playing them someday =P

Dan Ryckert's first Endurance Run?

I still stand by my statement that Dan and Drew should be made to play this at some point.

Also, I like the looks of this guy. Can't wait to see what kind of Personas he and his future party are packing.

I just read a near-frame-by-frame breakdown of this trailer over on io9, and then I stopped and asked myself what I'd come to that I was reading that level of speculation on a teaser trailer for a game---AND THEN I REMEMBERED ITS PERSONA AND AMAZING!

I feel no guilt in loving.

This game is probably going to be about phones huh. And as for another Endurance Run, the P4 one is my favourite content on the site and can't likely be replicated. I mean, people don't ask for another Mona Lisa!

I like me a good tactical turtleneck.

Looks like Naoto but with black hair. And like she put more effort into the being a man thing.

Where's the gameplayyyyyy? The build to this has been way too long for me to be satisfied with little animated teasers. But still, with my PS3 now broken, at least I have something to justify owning a PS4 on the way.

I'm guessing that the theme here is smartphones turn people into shadows or something.
