Seems like VP DS has a seamless field. Sounds kind of like VP2 + FF12 or something.

That's what I thought of when I saw it too. I can't believe I got the right idea. :lol Still looks like it has the awesome combat though. Looking forward to playing both P4 and VPDS! :D Until then... I'm waiting for that DVD!
...

If VPDS does get localized that is, but S-E has been pretty good with DS games so hopefully that'll erase any worries VP sales bring about it being localized.

I can't say I would be too excited to play a isometric action RPG, top down or side scroll FTW.

VP DS' 2D work is really underwhelming. I expect much more from tri-Ace... oh well.

P4 in July already? Earlier than expected, but then again, they got the P3 engine to work with. I'm wondering if it might see a Wii port. By the time it gets out of Japan (if it gets out), it would be a bit silly to release it on the PS2 alone. Atlus did it with Baroque, so I think there's a fair chance for a Wii Persona 4.

WHERE IS KANEKO.

He's gone into complete hiding. The last time we saw him he said he was doing artwork for the next Devil Summoner,and then nothing has been know ever since then.

I was kind of hoping Persona 4 would have went with his artwork.

No, Sting did it with Baroque. Nothing to do with Atlus. :P

Did Atlus publish it in Japan? I think the Wii version was Atlus' idea. It seems kind of weird how Sting would decide to port it.

No, Atlus has nothing to do with Baroque outside of the US publishing.

- The game takes place in the country side away from the cities, which is interesting for SMT
- the theme is mystery suspense (:o P2-esque please)
- Supposed to be a mystery full of twists and turns
- There is a weather system and whenever there's fog, a murder happens
- 1.5 x the size of P3
- multiple endings
- 60-70 hours

can the ps2 die already? i like the ps2 but its actually hurting the ps3 since games that could be on the ps3 are on the ps2. NIS has moved on with disgaea 3 and persona 4 needs to be on ps3 instead.

Don't stay up for the trailer, whenever someone gets it it'll definitely be hosted. Don't worry about it.

More P4 details:

- Takes place in the countryside, a more nostalgic environment
- The theme is murder mystery/suspense, it's a mystery thriller with twists and turns
- Multiple endings

Somehow I doubt that the PS2's death would lead to more PS3 games

The sprites really are small in VPDS, the clean scans really make it clear... the combat looks really faithful though, hope it works well in real-time.

Disgaea 3 still looks like a PS1 game though.
