Looks amazing but still find the battle art design/UI so ghastly. It is sooo busy and 'pop outty'. urgh...is gonna give me a headache. The UI designer needs to look at the the word subtle in a dictionary.

But Persona 3/4 were GOAT's. This sounds like it'll be no different

Played through the Japanese version. The battle UIs were a snap and easy to navigate through. There are definitely far worse battle UIs out there and I was pretty impressed by Persona 5's. Stylish yet easy to use. You will see what I mean when the English version finally hit.

Fuck that noise, other games need to have UI's that don't look ashamed to exist.

The UI design is very much influenced by manga. As is 90% of the other stuff about this game. To remove it would be detrimental to the over all design philosophy of the game.

Also it looks fucking brilliant.

I was wondering if they would change the text that pops up when you get a sneak attack, ambush is definitely a better fit than chance.

I do miss the slightly more dynamic camera in the other games but after a few battles it all starts to flow nicely. Having dedicated buttons instead of menu navigation makes things super fast.

Don't look at recommended videos, even official trailers aren't safe anymore. So annoying (I didn't get spoiled but I heard on reddit they got a recommended video from this trailer that spoiled the game)

I've searched about the trophy list on google, and it's true that we're gonna have a
"Hardocre Roestta Fan"
equivalent? That trophy was so hard to get! T-T

Someone who played the Japanese version knows about it? I think it's the
"Enthusiastic Listener"
: http://www.playstationtrophies.org/game/persona-5-ps3-ps4-jp/trophies/

Ps.: Tagged it with spoiler tags just in case, but it's not related to story progression and the name doesn't spoiler story either.

About the game, I've already watched some trailers and this one is not much different: it looks AMAZING! One of the games I was looking forward the most this gen as a big fan of P4G.

Should I be watching these videos...or go into the game relatively blind...

It doesn't spoiler anything it seems. It's more a presentation of the UI and battle stuff. Many of it's content was already shown in other trailers.

Pretty sure nothing in this trailer could ever be interpreted as even mild spoilers if you have a cursory understanding of the series, but if you want to go in completely blind I guess skip it?

I think Atlus has done an excellent job of keeping spoilers to a minimum in their marketing of the game.

Broke my blackout to watch this and so glad I did. This game looks like everything great about Persona, but refined and evolved -- and with a fresh coat of paint too. Can't wait to jump in.

I couldn't disagree more with this. The loud, heavily stylized UI is one of the things I'm most excited for here! Other games should learn that it's okay to go for something other than straightforward and clinical.

This is a better trailer than most of the English ones. I still wish they wouldn't put so much weird dialogue in them though.

That trailer was.. pretty bad at explaining gameplay mechanics if that's what it's purpose was supposed to be. Very fast and a lot of visually distracting text and shapes everywhere. I feel like I learned next to nothing about the game as a non-Persona fan.

This game is fucking good no amazing. I'm just finishing up the 4th dungeon from the Japanese version and I was blown away by everything. Not quite used to their English voices though they sound funny to me.

The UI is great there's nothing confusing about it.

Absolutely worth the wait.

visually this game is gorgeous, the graphic design and ui elements are superb, but i never gonna get into it sadly, jrpgs are not for me since snes era. I feel sad when im not hyped for a game so praised as persona.

happy for the jrpg fans though!

Joker sounds weird.
And by weird I mean he doesn't sound like Lelouch.

I love everything but got to say am not a fan of the vocalist this time around. I wish they had kept the singer from P4/P4G as she had a lovely voice. While before I loved hearing the songs with the lyrics, here I'd prefer hearing the instrumental tracks.

Edit:
Fixed typo. The name of the P4/P4G singer is Shihoko Hirata, if anyone is interested.

P3 and P4 has different singers, though.

I got the trophy without even trying for it in the second last or third last dungeon of the game.

I've heard this one is considerably streamlined gameplay-wise, and the battle system is super fast-paced with way less "command trees" than other big complex JRPGs; might be a good game to try to jump back into the genre with?

Don't worry, I'll vouch for them.

Allows you to switch to anther character when you knock down an enemy. The character that gets the Baton gets an attack and recovery boost

So kind of like the second chance in Persona 4 after hitting shadows with their weakness, but you can swap characters? Sounds cool.
