Here is the main character of Persona 5:



Her name is Hikari Daijobonakamuramishimotowatanabe and she goes to Yumenoyasashisakana Utsuruzenbuoikakushiteruzuruiyone High School.

The premise of the game is that, one day, Hikari's high school is taken over by five chairs who are possessed by five Shinto demon gods. The chairs enslave five students, including Hikari, and force them to build even more chairs so that the rest of the Shinto pantheon can possess them and eventually take over all of Japan.

While under the enslavement of the Shinto Chairs, Hikari and her friends gain special powers. They can sit in any chair in the world and instantly gain four extra demon chair limbs. The game also allows you to fuse your character with other types of furniture including tables, desks, cupboards, and sex slings.
I'd buy it.

What did I wake up to? I'm glad they finally announced P5. But no media? Not even a freaking screenshot? Have 0 interest in the 3DS and dance game. Also I prey to god that winter date is a worldwide release date. Are we really going to wait until 2015 to play this in the west?

Well there was no info about an English release at all and worldwide seems very unlikely but yeah there was no screenshots or media or anything. Just this teaser: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mZssK05WYo

Is whoever does the Twitch stream, also streaming the talk-show?
Yes. Some people asked, so I will stream some or all of it.

Also, that was one of the most incredible things I've ever experienced. Thank you all for getting me into the top ten at Twitch, if only for once.

So when they say Winter 2014, that means Jan-Mar right?

So if we add 6 months for localization that means we'll get it next fall I guess?

i LOVED the music that played for the teaser trailer, so smooth and mysterious

5 chairs for what in assuming are 5 party members slaved by something.

This WILL come out over here, Atlus said it will be bussiness as usual, and i'll be damned if some company that is a ghost of its former self will stand in the way.

EMANCIPATION COME 2014!!

I think the message will be "we're slaves in society" or something :p

Totally want Persona Q, Arena and of course Persona 5. Love that I have both systems already so I can share the persona love.

That was such a rollercoaster ride. First time I've ever worked myself up into a sweat watching a stream...

Looks like I'll have to rebuy a PS3 for this game

Nah, you got that a little backwards. Spring 2014 is Jan-Apr(?), Summer would be May-Aug, Fall and winter are sometimes interchangeable but normally designate the last few months in a year. So Winter 2014 means Oct-Dec 2014, which would lead to a 2015 USA release, if it's not a simultaneous release.

Winter =/= holiday. I doubt it's coming in the next 4 months, but it doesn't mean it's guaranteed holidays.

I don't know what the precedent for Atlus/Persona is, but it would be odd if this game was coming out by March and we have nothing but a picture of some chairs. I think it's safe to assume it's in the October-December 2014 window. Then we can be pleasantly surprised if it's early, but not disappointed if it's not.

Eh, you guys brought everything on yourselves.
Yeah, it's totally reasonable to shit talk a company for not announcing a game you want during the announcement in which they announce the game. Maybe save the vitriol for the end of the stream so you don't look dumb? If they were gonna announce P5, it was either going to be at the very beginning of the stream or the very end. They went with the end, that doesn't mean it's ok to lose your shit. It's kind of embarrassing.

The talk show is over capacity, so I'm not gonna bother. Apparently, nobody else can get in either.

The dancing game is out end of 2014.

This will be December 2014-Jan 2015 for sure

so we get 2 games for PS3, Persona 5 and another Arena game

a dancing rhythm game for Vita and a chibi dungeon crawler for 3DS

am a bit surprised that neither PS3 game was also announced for 360, did Catherine and the first Arena sell that badly?

BBCP is PS3 exclusive so maybe ASW just doesn't like the 360 anymore?
