I have no idea about Yusuke. Originally I thought that his CM killed any chance of him being dateable, but considering that he gives the MC the same treatment in The Day Breakers that Anne gets in his trailer, there might be a slight chance that he is indeed dateable.

That seemed like just fujobait.

I want to say it's going to be amazing, but I think we would have heard murmurings by now if it was something incredible, sadly.

Some dude in my Twitter feed played and found it boring. He seemed to think that Tadashi's involvement was minimal.

So, in regards to Goro, I'm starting to think he'll be more than just a party member. They're going to such an extent to portray him as a side character that I think there has to be more to it. Maybe he joins the party at one crucial moment and then leaves, or maybe he joins and leaves intermittently. Or maybe you play as Goro in Ciri-esque scenes in between chapters. I dunno.

But if it turns out that he's just a normal party member who joins in October and that's all, then all of this hiding is going to seem very, very silly.

If they really wanted to embrace his role as the detective chasing the thiefs, then leaving intermittently would work. It's not strange for the detective to help out when the threat is larger than the thiefs, then once it's done he goes right back to trying to catch them.

I'm not expecting anything too special, but I guess there's some cool ways they could mix it up.

And honestly game having a certain writer doesn't really guarantee a bad or good story. It's still a team effort with multiple people having input, with ultimately the director making decisions.

They'll definitely just play that piano ad with subtitles. "We don't use yen in America", you say? Who cares!?
Nah.
John Hardin will make his own version of the song.
I'm sure he is busy writing the lyrics as we speak.

I think Haru will be great.

Only character I think I'll dislike is Futaba. And maybe Morgana.

I don't like the idea of blocking the share button either. I have three backups from each of my hdd upgrades and resets of the PS4, each with at least 50 gigs of captures. So the utility of the feature isn't lost on me.

I'm sure part of it is about copyright and licensing as well. Type-0 blocked the share button whenever Zero started playing, even when it was just a character singing the song in universe which just seems silly to me.

Haru and Ryuji seem like two characters who will be far more popular in the west, and Futaba is like to be popular everywhere.

Very curious to see how opinions change about the cast as a whole once the game is out.

Ugh. On top of YouTube videos, this happens all the time at TVTropes. People don't know (or care) how to spoiler tag correctly. : \

The small snippets I've seen of Futaba since her reveal have actually been pretty promising.

The only worrisome character, to me, is Ryuji. His whole shtick is that he isn't too bright, so that could either be real annoying or endearing.

He will likely be the least popular character in the west.

He'll probably get endearing once/if he stops making those gawking monkey faces.

P5 will definitely be out there tuesday or wednesday, some people always get games early one way or another.

Poor girl.
I wonder how polling will look by the time it lands in NA.
Well Ryuji will probably drop to 9th place since Crow would have been revealed by then. :p
I think Haru will probably do better with the US/EU audience.
I think Haru will be great.

Agreed.
Surprised that Futaba wasn't first/second place.
I was pretty sure that Japan would love the type of character that Futaba is

i never listen to an OST out of context first.

well, i try not to

That's the one thing I'm always 100% fine with spoiling. I've bought some games because I listened to their OST out of context like Undertale and Bravely Default.

I don't mind spoiling the OST except for the final boss and credits themes, personally.

Fun fact:
The wait time in-between the JP and NA/EU/CN release is longer than the wait-time in-between the release date announcement for JP and the JP release.

I figured you'd be importing.

The language doesn't worry me (Igor is still killing me, though), but I can't afford it right now. I hope I'll get to play P6 in Japanese on release when it comes out in the distant future.

I wonder when we'll get more English footage, or at least voice actor reveals.

Current prevailing theory is 4 months out, just based on when Atlus USA started promoting other titles. So, probably sometime in late October, early November. Also makes sense because SMTIV:A comes out at the end of September, so it'll be time for them to start hyping up their next game.

Yeah, after Apocalypse, the only thing Atlus has before Persona 5 is Rock of Ages, so October seems likely.

They won't announce voice actors though, we'll just get footage and have to figure it out from that, or look for confirmations from the vo's themselves.

Hahahah I guess the importers are gonna be like "we know something you don't know XD" as others still speculate about the game as importers learn about the story in P5.

Playable in 3 days and 19 hours, my body IS READY.



I'm ready guys.

A fortune well-spent, hopefully.

Yeah the price is damn salty when buying from JP PSN, I had to buy a 10 000 yen card for 100€.
But this should be worth it.

But going digital means you don't get that 20th Anniversary box.


As a general reminder for people going digital too: If you want to play it at midnight, you have to preoder by the 14th, otherwise you'll have to wait for PSN to update normally.

I was struggling because I really wanted the box, but I also have a 4 day weekend from thursday to sunday. I went for digital so I can use the time for Persona 5.

I'll get it when the localized version is released.
