Persona 4 The Golden Animation Preview HDyoutube thumb

In the wake of that Index thing, ATLUS needs all the capital it can get.

And let's face it, a lot of its non-Persona titles just don't bring in the dinero.

It's not that spin-offs fault that its games got so damn popular.

>It seems to be a dungeon crawler

It's an Etrian Odyssey game with Persona setting and characters. I mean that in a completely literal sense: it's counted as a spinoff for both franchises, it uses the same game engine as EOIV and EO Untold, and most of the non-writing staff are EO developers. Hell, even the title is a pun on how Etrian Odyssey's Japanese name is abbreviated to SQ.

I fucking love EO, so I might get this even though I've not played Persona 3 or 4. Depends on if the story is at all comprehensible to newcomers.

I've always been on the outside looking in with this series and I've liked what I've seen.

I've just been pondering something for a while. What would happen if the Atlus guys decided that the next Persona game in the future would be set in America? Like a Japanese student has family in Japan and has to live there for a while. Is this an idea worth thinking about? Or that they could pull off?

My understanding of the Persona games (which I haven't actually played, just watched P4(G)) is that they're heavy on social interaction, and part of the way that works well is due to general density. Some of our cities might be able to meet larger Japanese cities, but at least according to http://www.citymayors.com/statistics/largest-cities-density-125.html (which is outdated, from 2007, but first hit) our largest is quite a bit beyond Tokyo or Kyoto. Such standard story elements would thus be a bit harder to pull off, especially since in America more dense often means lower class, and the Persona casts seem to be mostly lower-middle to lower-upper class.

Which is not to say they couldn't do it, but there would be some changes and moving it to America without a super-amazing reason would likely alienate a large portion of the Japanese fanbase while gaining little American fanbase (maybe a small boost in other countries because of the change of scenery, but still small.)

It doesn't really. It's just something I was mulling about in my head. I was thinking about how a persona game could approach different cultures and how that affects social interactions. As I understand it(I've only seen incomplete playthorughs and wikis), each of the protagonists are the new kid in town and thought what if they ramped it up to a larger scale, like the new kid on a whole new country. I don't expect it to happen in the future or anything. I just thought it would be an interesting idea.

>>189815
I hope it wouldn't alienate Japanese fans, but if they're afraid it would it could be plausible to have it in both the US and Japan. I don't know.

P3 is getting its movie series and a few stage plays, but yeah, lotta P4 was in the works.

I just hope that whatever the team decides for P4's future that it doesn't involve Persona X Detective. I'm not sure how it all went down Japan-side but I kinda hope it didn't do well enough to warrant further consideration and goes the path of Trinity Soul.

I might be being a little too harsh, I've only read a review of what happened in it, but it sounds like it was awful.

Adachi has become kind of a limp dick of a villain, hasn't he? I know he doesn't exactly redeem himself at the end of the original game, so much as he just sorta concedes that he's been beat, but still.

You're mad that Nocturne or whatever isn't/wasn't isn't the hit P4 is, I get it, but don't do the /v/ thing where that relative success makes P4 poison or something. They still continued work on P5, the P4 spinoffs are done by other studios, they still made SMTIV/SJ/DeSu/etc, and they continued to surface the older stuff on PSN. The only thing that has happened from P3 and particularly 4's success? Atlus getting more money.
