So wait if I'm reading that right, we start out with Persona 5 characters no matter what?

I swear if they add FeMC and not let her be the main character...

Trying to do 3 routes for all 3 teams would be a major pain, and I think that Bogged down the first Persona Q a lot from what I've heard.

I’d hope that this really does become a regular thing just so we can see each Q game juggle an increasingly larger cast.

It be really funny. [lol]

I learned just a couple days ago that apparently, the reason why the P1 and 2 characters don't show up much anymore is because their creator left Atlus long ago, it's rumored on bad terms.

[up][up] I already made that joke. Unless you were referencing it?

Anyway, I figured that the game would only be one path this time. And I would honestly prefer that. Have everyone be on speaking terms and no alternate paths and scenarios for no reason.

Uh Satomi Tadashi not only worked on DDS story but he also dod the new scenario for EPP ad the non-canon Japanese only ones for ISP.

I also saw his recent Persnaesque game Caligula adapted anime and it's MC story route episode was pretty gud. In that the main character was an Escapist creator of the Vocaloid u and fillsd her with absurd ideas like Japanese High School being an ideal, etc. which was driving her insane. His fantasy self being his workmate who is attractive, knowledgeable, has social skills, etc. None of which he has.

Apparently Persona 3 Portable's Female Protagonist will be an MVP in the story. Read about it here, here, and here.

EDIT: I also wanna talk about this, but I'll do it after the Super Smash Bros Ultimate Direct.

I'm back from the Direct, so here's a couple of things I wanna share from this article;

  • Hikari is voiced by Misato Fukuen (Currently most well known for Himiko Toga), while Nagi is voiced by Kikuko Inoue, so at least we know that Nagi is 17 years old.
  • "You can remove the protagonist, unlike the first game, and freely customize your party." I hope this also means we can change who's in the party without having to leave the labyrinths.
  • "there is no mechanic where you choose to start the story from the perspective of the Persona 3 or Persona 4 cast" I figured that that would be the case. Some people might not like it, but I'm happy that this is the way it is. Now there won't be any unnecessary alternate routes.

There's a couple of more things in the article, but these are the points wanted to bring up.

Nice. I don't think that the marriage thing from the first Persona Q will show up in Q2, but if it does I think it will be hilarious to see the two Protagonists of Persona 3 married to each other.

This might come as paranoid-driven, but there is something about Nagi I don't trust. She has the diva which probably one shouldn't have in a movie-themed setting. The fact that she is voiced by Kikuko Inoue makes me think of White-Dwarf Starlet. Also the eyes.

Look here for scans and other stuff. The Shadow with a tie in the trailer is called Doe.

Wasn’t one of the more popular ships for P3 the M Cs together?

Aug 8th 2018 at 2:09:24 PM

[up][up] You can drop Joker in favor of someone else this time, unlike in PQ1.

[up]That probably is the case, but the male and female protagonists together is likely nowhere near as popular as the female protagonist and Shinjiro (In part because maxing out his link saves him).

Saves him by putting him into a coma for a few months, after which he wakes up for about an hour and dies anyway.

Yeah, even if it's only for a couple of months Shinji gets to live.

All in all it was just there to allow Shinjiro say goodbye to the female MC. I like the character and everything but I couldn't care less about his ship with her.

Speaking of shipping, prior to P5 release it was decently popular to pair P 5 MC with Fe MC. I wonder if we will see more of that now.

(I'm just happy that Fe MC and Rise will interact, I always thought they would get along well in the hypothetical "Fe MC meets IT" scenario).

Something I wanted to ask you guys about the potential main antagonist of Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth (Spoilers for the first Q game); Considering Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth used a Greek god who was also an aspect of death in order to connect itself to Persona 3, do you guys think Q2 will use a popular thief as its main antagonist in order to connect itself to Persona 5? And if so, who do you think it'll be?

There are two ideas I thought up for who Q2's main antagonist could be;

  1. Famous filmmaker Georges Méliès, to tie into the movie theme. I don't think it'll be the case though, as A) I can't really think of a good reason as to why Georges would be an antagonist and B) I don't think the Persona series would ever use a real-life person as a major character unless they were only an apparition of said person (Like Hitler in Persona 2).
  2. James Moriarty, the "Napoleon of crime" himself, to tie into Persona 5's thief theme.

If we're going with a human antagonist, I'm guessing a fictional phenomenally famous director who is an huge plagiarist. Hell, throw in some Weinstein-inspired sexual harassment for increased relevance.

I was thinking something more similar to Yaldabaoth.

Maybe the Strange Journey version of the Demi Urge will be the main antagonist for PQ 2.
