I think I'll skip the Arena games this time round. Those story modes were just awful.
In for Dancing and Q2 though.
Gotta save something for the sequel.
The Persona 5 soundtrack does not suit a rhythm game at all... Christ.
A new Arena makes sense. Wonder if they'll be gentle with the 3/4 cast crossovers like P4A Vanilla was, or if we'll get most of the Investigation Team from the get-go.
I'm disappointed that we seem to be getting the same type of spin-offs with P5, too. I wanted an Ace Attorney type of point and click game with Sae and the detective characters from the series, something different, I don't know.
You'll never see it coming
Technically using 3D models should make their job easier than making new HD sprite-based characters so I think they will use that
I want it to look like Xrd. I'll take a reduced roster if that's what it takes.
Like, the Phantom Thieves + Aigis + Yu + token OC would be just fine.
I'd be okay with all of that. I mean, if Atlus didn't want to port P5 itself to the Switch, I'd be 100% okay with getting multiplat spin-offs, still want to play this stuff on the go, so that's why I bring that up.
So Persona 5: Dancing / Persona 5: Ultimax / Persona 5: After Golden / Persona 5: Racing (?) lol
Again though, I'm cool with all of this, if it all happened, I'd try to pick them up. Idk about a Racing game, but I think everyone would say the same thing about a rhythm game, lol. Ultimax is definitely the coolest one here, and After Golden sounds like a P4 crossover game, PQ style, except maybe without the chibi designs and EO dungeons.
Man I'd love to live in that world where this Vita port is a reasonable thing to make...
Could P5R be Persona 5: Ruby?
I was hoping they would at least wait a little before announcing the Vita port. I've barely even had the time to start P5.
Will be passing on the spinoffs. They were too flanderized/anime-ized for me.
Unlike P4G, this one would be a fairly heavy downgrade, curious to see how it'd look. I'm basically imagining P5 using P4 graphics more or less, but that probably doesn't work very well. Either way, doubt it related to a port of P5, be surprised if we hear anything about such a thing for another 2 years or more. At which point, I'm not even sure if Vita will still be a blip on the radar anymore.
Yeah, I'm expecting another ten year plan of spin-offs. I don't necessarily mind it, but I'd love if the time from P5 to P6 was more P3 to P4 than P4 to P5.
They couldn't be cooking up those spin-offs quick enough. If you thought 4 got it bad, be prepared for Atlus to double down even harder where 5 is concerned.
I look forward to playing Persona 6 when I'm a pensioner.
They did "downgrade" P3 to PSP, so it's not like it's unprecedented. I'm really hoping for a portable version.
save for free-to-play mobile with microtransactions. Not that I'd rule out mobile as a platform for a follow-up or spinoff, just don't turn it into a microtransaction cow. D:
