All the Persona games are coming to Switch, except 1 because no one should be subjected to Persona 1 in the 21st century.

There's a rerun of the SMT If manga apparently. :thunk:

We were expecting so little, and it was still a letdown. The symphonic concert might at least be a good listen if they're streaming the whole thing as they should be. (plague)

Maybe so, but why no Persona 5 on PC? People have been asking for this for ages. Persona 4 sold well over expectations IIRC?

Well that’s awkward, just installed P1 on my new vita (after a night on the store going “hah no you can’t download this”)

I can see why it’s not looked at as fondly though. First two hours of gameplay have been a bit of a confusing mess. However I have never once felt like I was in over my head and ran into a slaughter.

P1 is good, actually.

Atlus seems to primarily focus on the Japanese domestic market and PC gaming still isn't really a thing over there. Their general reaction to the Persona series' recent overseas popularity is "huh, that's cool I guess".

That and there's probably moneyhatting by Sony involved (iirc Sony did the localization work for P5)

Probably mainly just that starting the anniversary announcement series with a nothingburger, especially when when that's the announcement for the actual anniversary, seems pretty weird. But other than that, there's no reason to think this was gonna be huge, no.

people really really want persona games on switch and xbox and pc and that has turned into there being rumors that was happening, but as best i can tell from trying to actually check these rumors out its just people going "I want this to happen and i think it will"

The first time I realized Makoto’s VA was in Deathloop there me for a loop (pun intended). I know she’s everywhere but for some reason the absolute lunacy of her character in that game contrasted with Makoto is funny; the only thing they have in common is that they’re 18 year old girls.

Although now I kinda want to see Makoto with that perfect high ponytail

CharlieFoxtrot
Mar 26, 2007


Holy poo poo that's her? I immediately recognized her voice in the Final Fantasy Origin trailer but totally did not clock that she was the VA for Fia.

There's an audio log where she's recording voice lines for a game in the game and doing a hilariously bad job of it... So meta

Cherami Leigh has pretty good range, yeah. She was also Mae in Shadows of Valentia and Rhea in FE Three Houses, who are fairly distinct from each other.

As a Fairy Tail fan, I was super excited to have Cherami Leigh in a Persona game.

Then she voiced Makoto. Disappoint. I remember when this game came out somebody on here was very critical of her performance, said it lacked passion or spirit or something. I mean..it kinda did but I figured that was just Makoto.

I had also just heard her voice in SoV which is why it was fresh in my head, that character is much more in line with what I’ve heard her in before. I also learned that she was the female MC voice in Cyberpunk, which I played but picked the male character so I never actually heard her voice. Looking at it on YT that one has her in an entirely different register, probably because she’s playing an actual adult.

She gives a good performance in P5R, her face turn wouldn’t have nearly as much meaning if she didn’t sell Makoto as both very principled and also very impulsive, like a weird little teen cop. It’s not her fault Makoto’s social link sucks. She’s also good in Strikers, she gets a lot of fun things to do in that game. It also doesn’t help that you spend the most time in P5 with two of the best VA performances in the game (Ann and Ryuji)

I'm playing Persona 5 for the first time and have a question for the thread since googling P5 questions is a spoiler minefield: what is the mechanic that determines the cash you receive via negotiations? It seems really swingy, my best guess is your first x captures are boosted, plus maybe a bonus if you have that persona in your roster at the time, is that it?

Also if anyone has some non-spoiler 'things I wish I knew' tips I'd appreciate it. I'm at the second palace and just got stopped by the peacock door chamber, and I'm grinding out encounters before I leave for reference.

Are you playing the original Persona 5 or Persona 5 Royal?

Try to get a Sandman with Pulinpa, Confuse Boost and maybe a high Luck stat before getting too far into Mementos. Confusing the minibosses is your main way of grinding for cash in the base game and your initial way of getting cash before you can max out the money boost in P5R.

Again a very likpatous story


I was watching the Story of Seasons LP on TheStrawHatNO's channel and thanks to Youtube recommendations I saw they're doing a P5R playthrough as well. I only played Strikers and know absolutely nothing about the original game so I figured I'd watch, since they're a really fun group. But I have to ask something because it's bugging the hell out of me.

It's established when the Phantom Thieves are running from the mind controlled townspeople in Okinawa that they can't do Phantom Thief stuff in the real world, since Zenkichi suggests that as a method of escape. So I'm completely lost how the cops were able to arrest and apprehend Joker from the cognitive world. Is this ever explained?

Love that this was an announcement ultimately for an announcement in December.

Pretty sure this isn't even the first time that's happened, either.

She was Olga in Ys 8 which took me a while to realise, because that's the most different I've ever heard her sound.

Yes, the game does eventually explain that.

Yup, Sandman's gonna be a Mementos mainstay in your party then.

In addition - there are special weather conditions that will appear periodically in the real world that impact the Metaverse. Flu season would be the best for grinding levels in Mementos.

Okay, good. I know it's a weird thing to get hung up on but it's just because Strikers explicitly addresses that issue, if I hadn't played it I wouldn't care. :v: That said I've already see two characters who weren't in Strikers so I'm interested to see who they are and what's up with them (well okay, I already know who one of them is from watching a few cutscenes from Q2, but the other is a complete mystery).
