Seems strange they didn't add an E button to this honestly.

I was wondering the same thing.

I am also wondering why the hell they made Throw C+D, and made Guard Cancels and Dust-like attacks A+B. That's so completely backwards, it just boggles my mind.

Trying to go from KOF to this game would be a nightmare.

Yeah when I saw the system mechanics I was basically wondering why there wasn't an extra button, even if it was just Dust (sweep/overhead). Diagonal presses seem really annoying to me.

FWIW apparently the guy who designed this game was like the lead programmer of the GG series or something.

You can wax on wax off all you like, I'm still clubbing your ass.

Also note the cast gets a few of their moves from the GG side of things, such as Phenthesilea's whip stems from Axl Low, and how Izanagi borrows some of Ky's specials.

Metis is a part of Aigis' psyche.

Well, Aigis isn't the only Anti-Shadow robot created. Could be another one managed to escape the rubble.

Or maybe some crazy scientist on Persona Hill decided to get fancy and make another robot. I don't care what the backstory is, I'd just like to see a picture. Also still crossing fingers for Yukari.

If I recall correctly, it's the summer uniform from P4. So I'm guessing she's some sort of P4 version of Aigis. Whatever, I'll probably end up ignoring her anyways.

Besides hair/eye color? I don't really see it. I think it would be hilarious if it turns out this is Teddie's answer to Aigis.

I was more thinking along the lines of something really visually frantic and over-designed, like it seemed pretty out of place. Then again Aigis is a gun toting robot already so I guess those two can hang out and talk about robot stuff.

She's obviously a Midnight Channel projection based on all the nerds that really, really, really like robot girls, specifically the ones who played P4 expecting it to feature another HAWT FEMBOT like Aigis and were disappointed to find there wasn't one.

Apparently she's the student council president at Yasogami High and is trying to get Teddie to stop the tournament. Also, in one of the Persona 3 dramas that was about Aigis, apparently Labrys/Labrith was mentioned as one of the other anti-shadow robots.

Or so I hear, at least

Isn't Mitsuru's reason for being in Inaba is that she's looking for a certain "something"? Labrys is probably that something. But really, another robot girl? That's supposedly been the student council president at Yasogami High? I can take alot of bullshit and go with it but this is crossing the line.

Policenaut

Famitsu released some official screenshots of Labrys, click the picture to see them and some new screens of the color variations/Mitsuru's super?



Sure, another robot girl. Why not? It's not like Persona has 5 games worth of material to draw additional characters from. Maya who? Junpei what? Eikichi huh? Nope, robot girl.

She probably will, she has that persona charges/life under her lifebar the rest of the characters do. Or she does something different (Boss character bullshit?), but it will function the same way as personas and can't be used if she's out of charges.

Hey, they remembered Maya, Eikichi, Baofu and Yukino:


I mean, yeah, Naoto-as-Yukino and Yosuke-as-Eikichi are the only ones that are easily identifiable (Mitsuru-as-Maya is pretty much impossible to identify, while you can really only tell that Kanji-is-Baofu because his persona is dressed up as Odysseus)...
