I like how the unboxing showed the artbook but not the track list

Also how the artbook also doesn't appear to contain Goro's thief form/persona.

That's cool not like the Fire Emblem Fates one who include one of the final bosses of the game so spoilers before you ever played the game and got curious about the artwork first rofl

Yah, they went spoiler free with the artbook.
I guess they will release a thicker (more expensive) one later.

But it's ok, I got all the Soejima artbooks I've got my hands on.

Lol I put hundreds of hours into this series and I still couldn't tell you what all the buffs and debuffs do without reading the description.

The only thing that stuck for me is Agi, Bufu, Hama, etc.
It took me a long time to rmember what they were, and I still forget sometimes. Though I have a few mnemonic tips:

Spells ending in "unda" are debuffs, and "unda" sounds like "under". Like you are making their stats go under the normal level. Once you remember unda, you'll know that "kaja" spells are the buffs.

"Taru" spells are atTAck. "Suku" spells are speed (both start with "s") meaning hit/evasion, and then you know "raku" is defense by process of elimination.

I can never remember most of the status spells, though. Other than Poisma, Enervation, and Foolish Whisper because those make some sense.

I think I might go for 審判, 'Judgement', for the team name, even though it might be a bit too plain.

"Shinpan" sounds kind of lame, though. I'd go with maybe 刑罰 "keibatsu" or 判断 "handan" for judgement.

The artbook and the back cover of the box look so sexy. Makes me almost regret I canceled my preorder for the 20th anniversary edition and switched to digital. But with shipping it was stupidly expensive, and I want to start playing right away on the 14th.

You mean Masquerade. :p

Actually I like more Masked circle, but well, I'm the one who really liked Eikichi's Michelle name. The "circle" remind me to Dennou Coil, actually xD


Oh my god, outside P1 and P2 Batsu
and its lack of official traduction
, everything about PSP P2 Tsumi is sooo wrong.

Before we got more information about P5 I called the group "The Masquerade"

So im probably going with that.

In my playthrough of P5:

"Have you heard about the vigilantes going around brainwashing people?"

"All of Tokyo has learned to fear them. I've heard they go by the name... The Sneakmans"

That suspicious group of thieves "XxSephiroth420xX", have been wreaking havoc all over town.

Not to spoil anyone's fun, but I'm pretty sure naming your team only applies to the online aspect of the game.

In the main story I'm 99% sure you're going to be the Phantom Thieves of Hearts.

Hopefully the localization makes that title a bit less clunky in English.

Here is a youtube version of that webm
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=05G0Mua0MTE

And in case you are wondering it's a direct feed of the title screen

I can't, guys. I'll spoil the shit out of this game and I know it. I'm too weak.

Also, there's no doubt in my mind of what'll be the name of my gang. The Phantom Troupe is coming to Tokyo.

(pretend I shopped the Persona 5 protagonists in there somewhere)

Welp I just did it

I pre-ordered the JPN game, without knowing japanese outside of hiragana and katakana and some basic words.

Yet I feel no regrets...

that makes it even better

Get in the spoiler bunker.

It's so gorgeous, tear.

It's nice to get a better look at the oh-so-mysterious ninth team member's mask. When people were talking about a plague doctor mask, I had pictured the creepy historical version, not the masquerade version. D'oh.

It doesn't seem to be quite as phallic as Geralt's, though I'm sure it will be as pretty.



(I'm assuming this doesn't have to be spoiler tagged, as the title screen gif has been going around GAF all week.)

I don't have the 88 dollars for the Japanese version 8D
I was considering getting the downloadable version off of psn, but $105 is pretty steep to pay for the yen psn cards to get it.

We'll see how long I can hold out.

Don't worry. Not to spoil anything, but Goro's thief outfit has a big floppy dong on it.

The main menu music is glorious ...im too weak im gonna spoil myself with all or buy/ play the japanese version before the year ends

And yeah the only ones who treat Goro as a big ass spoiler is Atlus themselves , looking to the menu video in a big screen it seems Goro mask had a long nose ...

Alright, even as a spoiler hunter, I'd say we should probably not have any more stuff like the title screen openly spoiled in the thread.

I can't remember if Atlus released the titlescreen themselves or not.

Regardless, everyone should keep in mind that if it wasn't released by Atlus, it belongs in spoiler tags.

It's best to not even be here or on Youtube. Waiting until the English release is a true test of spoiler dodging. What's inevitable is that some things will get spoiled. Maybe you casually search something for cool Persona fan art and BLAM! Suddenly you're seeing stuff you don't wanna see. It sucks but that's the situation.

They kind of did. There was a smallish screen in famitsu, and it was shown during a famitsu stream.

Either way, I wouldn't consider the title screen too bad, but with unofficial media incoming, it should not be embeded and properly tagged.

Spoiling the title screen sounds way too ridiculous a concept for me. It's the thing you see when you boot the game that asks you to press a button to start. Spoiler culture has gone too far.

The game box is a spoiler too. It shows all of your party members.

Or does it?

No it's not game ruining stuff, but in a game with as much visual style as this, I can understand why people would like to be surprised by it. It's not hard to just spoiler tag this sort of stuff.

'Merica
Two questions (The link is to the anime episode, if you're trying to avoid it don't click it)

1) Has anyone posted the OST yet somewhere?

2) If so, does it have a clean version of this song? I know it's originally from PV2 but was curious if they released the lyric version anywhere.

Sweet Mother.... I never thought I would see that guy ever again.... I can't believe I never discussed him at all. Isn't he based off something??? Oh and...
I loved that moment when you hear his voice in Persona 4 when you visit the P3 Dorm
