I wonder if they going to bring back some elements/story from the older games (Persona 2 IS and EP) with JOKER being mention. Hell the ending of trailer with flames around the MC reminiscent of a scene in IS's Opening when Tatsuya does the same thing with a mask.

I wonder what all that figure skating motif is about...

And the heroine isn't going to be DLC, right?

People keep saying that it looks like Social Links are removed, but in Japan Social Links are called Community. I'm pretty sure "Cooperation" might just be a new name for the feature.

Wow, I can't believe they're going back to megaten roots of having a 'melee' weapon + firearm. Hopefully they go back to slash/bash/pierce types of physical attacks (so you know you can commonly have enemies who are immune to some type of physicals), otherwise what's the point?

I'm most disappointed by the girl's 3d model, as it looks so bad compared to the MC's. Her anime form though is <3, and the menus are just badass.

Will hold out with further thoughts until some more info is out. Right now I'm more hyped about Dancing All Night, but that might just be because it's closer.

Because Atlus wants the series to remain a casualized SMT?

They may have only brought it back moreso to give the player a little more variety in approaching battles. But I do hope you're right.

On rewatch (with HQ) the models are looking better than I originally gave them credit. Looks like more like slightly downgraded Catherine, P5 is doing a lot more than that game did technically. So it's a fair trade-off I suppose.

One thing I noticed: Monday April 11. Assuming that isn't temporary, the game most likely takes place in 2016.

The game looks like the balance between SMT4 & P3/4 (for battle system). They took the larger fields & level design for sure from it. I don't mind the battle system not changing at the base. But I'm definitely interested in what new systems/tweaks they introduce to it.

I don't think that's the case. They said they've been working on a new internal engine for a while for the next Persona for years. From a creative point of view, they probably just used it as inspiration.

Finally some gameplay. The graphics are similar to Catherine's, but it's hard to tell if they look as good. City seems a lot bigger than the previous ones. Igor is back (I told you!) with lolis. The protagonists definitely seem more "ill-mannered" than the previous ones. They may even be criminals.

So far so good.

Oh really? That's kind of a waste, but what they have certainly looks good enough for a late gen title.

I have no knowledge on engines, but 2 engines wouldn't work together? I guess it's best they moved away from Gamebryo when working on a meatier game anyway.

The trailer loooks so amazing I wanna cry aaaaah.
Now I finally have a reason to get a PS4 (because I might as well get All-Out on it fufufu)

I guess there're no more infos about cast/release date yet (I can't read Japanese so maybe people can tell me otehrwise). But hopefully we'll get more infos soon
I definitely can't wait <333

I swear the menu transition was the most awesome part of the trailer. Oh also that fast-movement dungeons too!

N-now if only they're going to make the new SMT to be like this too ;_;

Also uh, is that MC transformed himself into persona at the end of the trailer?

That actually looked more like a stylized version of EO grid-based dungeon crawling to me

Finally! This was as well worth the wait .

General thoughts from the info we've been given and the trailer:

- Igor's back! And with Loli's as his new attendants! I wonder if this means he's finally been recasted or if they'll still just reuse lines and have the twin Loli's do most of the new exposition? Be interesting to see what the Loli's are like compared to the past attendants, and how their Social Link/"Cooperation" might work out. The Velvet Room looking like a prison cell fits well with the themes of the game and the protagonists dressing as Phantom Thief's.

- Speaking of, I wonder if the whole Phantom Thief thing is something the protagonists get thrown into because of the threat they're facing or if they're genuinely criminals wanted by the general public in their Phantom guises? Though the idea of dressing up as someone else and breaking the law's society sets against you would go well alongside the established themes of the game. It would also make sense with the comment about them being more "ill-behaved" compared to the casts of previous games.

- I definitely like Anzu's outfit as a Phantom Thief .

- I thought the graphics looked pretty good, and very reminiscent of Catherine even if it's a completely different engine .

- Jun Fukuyama as the Persona 5 MC is cool, and I can't wait to hear about the rest of the cast. I wonder if he'll also end up voicing another major character?

- The MC is definitely quite expressive, particularly when wearing his mask, and it'll be interesting to see how that translates, if at all, into gameplay.

- Man, those are some stylish menu's .

- So Cooperation is the Social Link equivalent for Persona 5? Or at least what it's being called in the Japanese version. I wonder if it'll basically still work the same or what new features might be added to it? I kinda get the feeling it might be party-centric, but that's probably wrong. It'll be interesting to see if we'll get more additions to the party then just the four characters introduced in the trailer.

- The MC's first Persona, which I assume is what the thing behind the MC in that promotional art is, looks pretty awesome and kinda reminds me of Izanagi in a way. Be even more awesome if the MC can actually turn into him .

Well done, Atlus. I'm loving the style so far.

On the other hand I seem to recall reading somewhere that that Persona team was using Catherine to learn how to develop for the (then) new consoles. I wouldn't be surprised if this is actually the same engine from Catherine properly expanded and altered to fit into the gameplay of the Persona series. The overall aesthetic and the type of motions instantly reminded me of that particular game (not surprising since it's the same team). As a Software Developer myself I would risk betting on them forking and expanding the engine they already have for the PS3 instead of building yet another new engine (Atlus doesn't strike me as doing that unlike Square Enix ).

Wonder if that means something
