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.

I don't really care for Akihiko and Mitsuru's designs, they both look really silly and I don't understand why Akihiko is not wearing a shirt or why Mitsuru looks like she walked out of a bad 90s comic.

Well, I'd guess it's because he's a boxer, and typically boxers don't wear a shirt when they fight?

Was he not a boxer in P3 also?

Can we still get rid of Lowenthal, please? I know the guy's pretty much assured given he works for peanuts, but I hate his voice and everything having to do with his voice-acting.

As cool of an idea as this is I can't imagine them giving him a practical moveset considering he neither has no persona or real fighting skills beyond "gun".

Sounds like Teddie and Rise's original voice actors aren't in.


No, that's Laura Bailey as Rise, still. However Teddie is being voiced by Sam Riegel now and man is it annoying.

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.

/I know too much about English VA's.

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.

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.

I know the voice actor for Adachi is the same guy that did the main character's voice in battle and stuff but it looks like he's doing everything for him now. When he talks in the story I can't not hear Adachi saying it...

I can because whenever I remember Adachi's voice it's whenever he's loving nuts since that's when he's most memorable..

According to something I read, Teddie's name in Japanese is just "Kuma." "Bear." Probably wouldn't have translated as well... hm. Couldn't they have called him "Barry?"

No, because that would not be as great as "Teddie".

It really doesn't sound like Mela Lee at all, it sounds more like Wendee Lee in all honesty.

EDIT: Yeah, I listened again it's definitely Wendee Lee.

DOUBLE EDIT: Unless they list the voice cast in the game in which case I need to pay attention to the credits.

EDIT EDIT EDIT: They do not list the voice cast, so I'm sticking with my current assumption.

Super Jump from the beam and then air dash towards Liz when you hit the peak of your jump, you should basically be right in front of her when Ziodyne is clearing up.

So, any bets on what the other members of SEES look like now that they're older and can pick their own clothing? Because, really, Akihiko's design still floors me.

I have to assume only Akihiko and Mitsuru did this stupid crap as they're the only ones eccentric enough to think those are good.

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.

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.

So, we finally have some PerSHOna gameplay footage:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIMPXC64hjo

Some pretty interesting stuff there, teleports, some of his persona attacks track, a command throw, and a fullscreen projectile super. Oh, and a counter super that does 2500 damage and turns the entire screen and Sho black.

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.

You don't unlock anything by doing the story mode, every character is unlocked for playability automatically. About the only thing you do get from it is trophies and story content.

I can finally play this since I finished P4G. Which story modes are recommended? Is there an order in which to play them?

You unlock the story modes as you play through other characters stories, just play whoever you want, they very rarely interconnect in the same way as another.
