Yeah, there's really not a lot to say about the game at this point. The most we know is "Oh hey, there's punching and some spirits that fight with you like JoJo." But whatever, I've got Naoto and Chie, all I need is Adachi to sweeten the pot.

So what are the chances of this getting localized with the English voice actors? I like the idea of a P4 fighting game, but I don't know how excited I can get if I can't hear Kanji yell "Get bent!" while smashing a guy with a folding chair.

It's Atlus and ArcSys, so odds are very high.

Wow those titles sound even dumber when they're spoken in English, especially Yu's, I loving hate Yu's. Anyways it seems like every female VA changed, Erin Fitzgerald as Chie sounds significantly different than I imagined in my head, Yukiko sounds a bit like... I can't put my finger on the VA, but it does not sound like Amanda Winn-Lee at all, and Naoto is definitely Michelle Ruff, which I honestly don't mind. I though Kanji's voice was changed at first until I realized that Troy Baker sort of went into Shadow Kanji territory with that voice, which is bizarre given that you'd think Kanji is the one character whose voice wouldn't need to be changed much for this game. Literally the only female VA from the main group they seemed to have got back was Laura Bailey for Rise and really, Laura Bailey is in like everything at this point so this should come as no surprise.

And yes, that is in fact Patrick Seitz (Ragna - Blazblue, Dracula - Castlevania, Bob - Tekken 6) as the announcer, which is pretty drat great. Sam Riegel as Teddie isn't really doing it for me, I honestly find it kind of hard to believe that Dave Wittenberg was not attainable in some way.


Cleretic posted:

Is that really Yuri Lownthall still voicing Yosuke? I thought I'd gotten good at picking Lowenthall's voice, but he actually sounds tangibly different this time.

Yes, that is Lowenthal's voice, no it does not sound different, he's just fast-paced now because he's in a fighting game and kind of has to be.

Except Amanda's been talking about recording for this game on her Facebook (she's also said some uh... interesting things about the fate of the anime dub) so that is indeed 100% her.

Alright, I did not know that, thanks.

quote:

Also Naoto's voice to me is very obviously her original VA? I'm confused as to why you guys would think otherwise, I only hear a very vague resemblance to Michelle Ruff to be honest.

Because that's clearly not her. I've heard Susan Dalian enough to know her voice from Storm, Haku and Naoto, Naoto's voice in the trailer is too high pitched from what I heard to be her and Michelle Ruff's been in way more stuff, so she's much easier to recognize. Now, I'm more than likely just jumping to conclusions since I've only heard one line from that trailer so I'll retract my statement until I get a more definitive sound clip.

EDIT:

Lucinice posted:

The voice acting industry sounds like a bad industry to work in.

Japanese VA's are actually kind of treated like stars over there, however in the West it's not very kind to you unless you're a part of one of the high profile cartoons like anything on Fox or Disney Movies. I've listened to some commentary on Anime DVD's and while they do love their job, the western VAs acknowledge that it doesn't really make much, I believe either Chris Patton or Jay Hickman stated that they had to sleep in their car at one point.

DOUBLE EDIT: Mind you, Steve Blum is probably living well due to being a rather high profile VA due to voicing over 200 characters in the past two decades.

Can I get a recommendation of offensive-based characters with no gimmicks? I've been looking, but I don't think I can find a good idea of who I'd like to use with good speed and simplicity. I think Akihiko or Chie, but I can't be certain if those two are good choices for what I'm looking for.

The bad guy is currently unknown, but it's currently speculated that it's Nyarlathotep, the villain from P1 and P2. He fits the bill too, since he can manipulate people and would know much about the Persona-users and Shadows.

I was under the impression that it's two guys though. One is the guy who most of the P4 cast encounters when Labrys gets hacked and has the robot voice, the other is what I think is Nyarlathotep with the fake shadow versions of Naoto and the P3 Cast and sending Labrys to attack them.

I mean, it's quite possible it's just Nyarlathotep, but someone had to put together the hijacking at the start and I believe that Nyarls wouldn't have had the robot voice had he possessed Labrys directly, so there's obviously another dude working with him that's human.

TechnoSyndrome posted:

Releasing games for consoles people own is a logical decision, but it didn't stop them from making Persona 4 Golden a Vita exclusive.

This is because Japan loves handheld games more than anything else and rather than gimp the game out a lot for PSP, they just went with the new handheld that could keep all of the stuff in the game while adding more, it's pretty simple. Atlus and ArcSys are not agreeing to putting P4A2 on PS4, that would be loving stupid. No one's buying a PS4 for P4A2, especially not in either America or Japan where the former scene is still going to be using PS3's and 360's for the forseeable future and in Japan where arcades are still very much alive.

I doubt even GG Xrd is going on future consoles and not PS3/360.

That super looks precise as hell though. It couldn't counter the regular attacks and it seemed they specifically needed Kanji's jump B for it to activate.

This game isn't really like a traditional ArcSys fighter, you get two dedicated attack buttons with your actual characters and two attack buttons for your persona. You also have to manage your Persona as if it gets broken you lose quite a few options in terms of special attacks and even super moves. Also, you might want to find a button combination your hands are comfortable with because there are several mechanics which require you to press two or more buttons at the same time and it could really be awkward to try and do some at key moments.

Hitbox should never be an issue, make the character bigger, add some armor to them, anything that makes it necessary to make the hitbox bigger if it needs to be. A common complaint I've seen for not adding Jubei to Blazblue is his hitbox would be too small and that's not an excuse because he fights with armor, or you can make him bigger if need be.

It's a fighting game, as long as you're not making them giants or midgets you can take some liberty with character sizes.

Adachi was resigned to his loss at the end of P4, there's no point in bringing him back as a villain. His appearances from after that will probably be strictly from other villains taking his form or relegated to events from P4 like the DLC Campaign coming for this game. He's going to be playable it seems, we're just waiting for official word at this point.

You're probably not gonna see it in this game, they said the character would APPEAR in the story mode for the P3 characters, not be playable. I highly doubt Chidori's taking any active role in the Shadow Group stuff given her Persona is kind of unstable. I can't imagine her taking any part in the game's actual events, really.

From this Episode P3 and Episode P4 stuff, it seems like they might be splitting up the story mode into segments like what they did with Chronophantasma. If there was a third faction I'd imagine it'll probably be Sho's or something.

That doesn't apply to any other character though, shadow mode or regular has the same amount of persona cards. There are a couple inferences you can make from him having so few cards though, he should have and interesting gimmick or two.
