That cutscene makes the protagonist look exactly like Yu with different hair.

In any case, the gen bump was a surprise. I wonder if that has anything to do with it seemingly taking a little longer to come out than they originally thought.

- the plot takes a stunning twist when you realize you had the power all along
- every s.link level you get laid
- you can get a job hosting some russian transfer students (all female, all hot, you s.link with all of them -- at once)
- your persona is named steve or something, it doesnt matter, there's none of that boring combat in the game at all
- there is a llama
- the velvet room is just your bedroom where you fuse your cock into vaginas (igor's a little creepy being there but he totally rolls with it)
- the whole game is one giant cutscene that can't be skipped or fast-forwarded, only slowed down (during all the s.links, word)
- this all takes place in the middle of shibuya, harumi-cho, tokyo-kun, japan
- you beat the game by going to japan in real life and re-enacting it all; that's the game's final twist, it was all just a simulation to train you to achieve your dreams

This is the only way to unlock Shin Megami Tensei 4.
HOLY SHIT

Teaser looks teasing! Well, aside from Harry Potter's school having a regular school badge rather than BMW or Mercedes-Benz emblem. I was hoping for a Ford badge this time around! RUINED FOREVER.

I do wonder what the differences between the PS3 and PS4 versions will be. Not really looking forward to a brand new console when I'm still two generations behind, but some of the PS4's features could be nice.

Specific thoughts:
* What's the text in those headlines? From reading comments elsewhere they seem to be generic news items about typical bad stuff happening.
* Replaying the last shot, the Persona reflected on Harry's glasses looks like an anthropomorphic bird.
* Might actually be set in Tokyo for the first time ever? Is Harry a local, or is he transferring in from the country?

Man does the protagonist look punchable. Presumably he "wants emancipation" because he gets stuffed into a locker on a daily basis.

I like the design a lot.

Anyway, really excited about it taking place in Tokyo. I think all games should take place there.

I think it's more that Sony is desperate to get Japan to buy a PS4. Seemingly every game they've announced to today has a PS4 version, even if it's actually just a Vita title.

I've been listening to a lot of No More Whoppers, and hearing all about Japan's ludicrous societal quirks and the general reluctance to change anything ever, I'm hoping the last boss will be a monstrous anthropomorphized Katakana of the phrase, "It can't be helped".

There are no games for Next Gen.

And whenever there's games for Next Gen, they're all ports.


All that said, I'm pretty stoked for a new Persona, though I would have liked the trailer to have had some, you know. Substance to it.

Just to feed speculation, I took out the Persona bit from the end of the teaser. Seeing the flames in motion makes it easier to make out the silhouette than a static shot does.

Silly Zef, that's no Persona - that's the owl that's coming to deliver NotYu's letter from Hogwarts.

So in a little over two weeks we get to find out that flaming winged thing was designed by a TOKUSATSU LEGEND, right? (my guess: it's Vishnu)

Ha, of course I randomly picked that one

I revise my guess, I think it's Pazuzu.

PS4, huh? I would prefer a port to 360 or PC, but there's at least a chance that I will eventually buy a PS4 and play this on that some day. Because even if my PS3 could survive a 100-hour RPG, it would be too unpleasant an experience for me to play it on with the crazy jet-engine fan running the whole time.

Ugh. Now I have to buy a PS4. I don't wanna, but anything for you, Megaten-kun.

Crap, and not wanting to dig out my PS3 to play it was the justification I had for not picking up another dozens-of-hours-long Persona game.

That flaming figure looks to be doing a little jazz shuffle.

Persona 5 splits the difference between Boy Mode and Girl Mode by giving us the Avatar of Androgny.

I'll never think of this protag as anything other than Harry again. Harry Potter will totally be the name I give him.

Anyway, I'm glad to see...well, something from Persona 5. Some gameplay would be nice, but at least I can get some ideas of the direction of the narrative and locale here.
