I love Megaten but man I wish I had more free time to play these games. I'm playing P5R, I started SMT3 in HD as soon as it got released and put it aside because I wanted to play other games a bit more, and I still haven't played Devil Survivor 1 and 2 despite having them on the 3DS.

>it is a shame the story sucks.
I agree and disagree at the same time. The story is often very interesting or has interesting concepts and then the next scene is so retarded it cancels the positive aspects of the story. Rinse and repeat. I'm not even trying to start the dungeon where Haru joins the part yet because I'm fucking sick of Morgana and wants to punt him into the sun. I'm sick of shitty mascots, it worked well with Teddie because everything about him makes sense in the context of P4 but Morgana seems to only exist because Teddie is kind of a popular character.

the later persona games did a really good job at having useless characters. i don't mind morgana's personality but the whole game i was wondering why the fuck he is there and the explanation makes no sense imo. i really, REALLY hate makoto though. she is so boring and i have no fucking clue why she appeals to moids so much. all the obsessive sexualization of her just made me somehow hate her more because i don't see the appeal at all. i wish hifumi was in her place.

I'm sure Makoto is a party member JUST because she's related to Sae. Just make Sae a late party member herself since she's one of the most relevant NPCs of the game.

yea! mechanically pq is an eo game with a persona skin, but like i said eo doesn't have as much fluff as pq, that's the persona element. they're still lovely games that get better with each entry, so if you want to play them i'd recommend starting the 3ds titles in order of release. it doesn't matter for the plot or anything just the qol updates between games can be so huge and it may feel jarring to play older games once you get comfy with newer ones. some of the girl party member designs can be a little coomer but thankfully every class has different design options, 2 boys and 2 girls to choose from + 1 pallette swap for each, and the boy options aren't ugly cretins either they're just as cute.

The last Megaten game I played was SMT IV. I absolutely HATED the start until the major plot kicked in, and then for a while it was awesome SMT apocalyptic goodness. But after you have to choose between Jonathan and Walter, I got stuck with Lucifer and my interest completely dropped. I stopped playing shortly after the confrontation with Isabeau.
I never played Apocalypse because it looked too anime/moe even compared to IV. But I was pleasantly surprised that IV still felt like a SMT game, even looking at the designs now some of them had that Kazuma Kaneko vibe.

No. 300143

I hate how difficult it can get in SMT4 if you want the neutral route. I just didn't want to kill Isabeau. I liked SMT4A a lot, I liked the story and characters and feel like it's good that the atmosphere isn't the exact same as 4 or I would have found it too repetitive. I'm just mad that Nozomi has a shitty grandma sounding voice actress in English in 4A despite her sounding like a normal young woman in 4.

Hopefully this doesn't mean anything, I think they have milked P5 enough already.
It's a huge stretch, but if it ends up being real I hope it's a code for P5 theatre or something. They have just finished the P5 stage play, so they may move on with Strikers now. At least the stageplays are fun and they don't slow down the actual games development.

No. 300289

Do they usually register domains for things that aren't games? I wouldn't mind a game that's set during the P5 timeline (or in P5's universe) with new characters, but it's highly unlikely. I feel like P5's thief concept had so much potential but then the game itself doesn't explore it all that well and wastes time with a lot of useless things.

No. 300298

I'm not sure if it's the case for P5 too, but the P3 stageplay had its own domain. Theyre websites after all, so even though it's rarer to see them nowadays, Atlus and lots other companies still make websites to promo their games/events.

No. 300299

Many companies that produce and sell pretty much anything do this just in case, sometimes they even do it for trademarks and domains they're not actually using just so other companies can't use them and create confusion. I'm sure they're use it in that case though and it could be for anything, not just a game.

No. 300396

Oh I see, thank you for explaining. Everyone thinks it's a game already but it could indeed be a stage play. Or maybe it's that gacha game done by a shady chinese company, since it starts with a T (The Phantom X).

There are lots of people into SRPGs, but I can't keep laughing at how Atlus overshadowed their own announcement by showing P5T alongside P3RE kek How did they think it was good marketing?
I have seen a total of 4 people talking about it. I loved the PQ art, but this one looks kinda ugly imo because of the exaggerated limbs.

I’m very excited for P3RE though, it needs some polishing (hopefully they will fix that in the 6-8 months it has left to come out) and I dislike the clash between the P3-style models and P5-style portraits, but I’m pretty content with the bit we have seen. Really digging the whole water/drowning theme it has going on.
The change to pre-rendered cutscenes gives me hope that FeMC will be on it as well since replacing models and changing it a bit is way easier than animating another character.

No. 301762

Have they officially announced P3remake yet or is it still just a leak? If they don't reveal Femc during the official announcement, we might have to accept the fact she's not in it. She's too big of a feature to just receive a "Oh, by the way" announcement later on.

No. 301769

Leak, it will be officially announced later today. But it’s just a teaser, my bets are that they will show a full MC-only trailer during Atlus' expo in July, and then in October they will give FeMC her own trailer.

Would be weird to not include her after all the pushing they have given her, and even though it would be on brand for Atlus to ignore half of the game, I prefer to stay positive.

No. 301770

>I loved the PQ art, but this one looks kinda ugly imo because of the exaggerated limbs
Exactly! They could have just used the PQ style but with higher quality, but then they decided to teak it into those things and it's kinda ruined. I still think we didn't need a SRPG with P5 style and the same exact story as P5 and Strikers (and the gacha shit).

P3RE looks good to me, I don't think the portraits clash that much honestly. The theme looks very cool as you said.

No. 301771

The main reason I'm not optimistic about Femc being in it is that she isn't on the box art. If she's an option, why is it only showing the male Mc on the box art instead of both of them?

No. 301772

But the box art hasn't been shown yet…? But I have seen people saying that they will do a pokemon and sell the MC/FeMC versions as separate games kek. Again, I wouldn't be surprised if they cut her off, but the opposite possibility is always here. I guess they will start adding FeMC to the promotional pics after she's announced.

It's not a matter of needing a remake, iirc P3 won a poll of which game fans wanted to see get a remake. Most of the games that had higher scores were games that didn't need a remake or that had a recent remaster like P4 or SMT4 and 4A. I voted for DDS…

It's not even just that, in that case that would also mean they're removing a few personas you can use in battle as well.

yeah it kind of took away what made p3 stand on its own.

Not a Megaten game but still an Atlus game so… Does anyone else think that Metaphor game looks tacky as hell? I saw the trailer yesterday, watched it and I just couldn't bring myself to care about it but the playable characters look kind of ugly. And for some reason since it's the same devs as P3, 4 and 5 they just HAD to make an ugly mascot looking thing a playable character as well AND they're probably going to put a similar calendar system. Which only really worked for P3 imo but oh well. Praying that the new team that manages the Persona series will stop it with the retarded mascots.

No. 301871

Just came here to see if anyone's talking about it, I'll post the trailer.
It looks really good technically (menus are cool and the animations seem very original, although very clearly inspired by P5's style) but it's seems awfully derivative. The fairy mascot reminds me of Berserk, SOME characters you see look kinda cool but the ones who seem to be playable are so ugly and all over the place. The gameplay also looks like the average Persona game. And everything looks so.. brown and dull.

No. 301875

I agree with it being derivative, I noticed this because of the spell names as well, I think you can see a list at some point with "matarukaja" or another buff or debuff spell. It's disappointing, coming from a new IP, I remember Catherine giving off a very different vibe compared to Megaten despite the obvious inspiration. I still want my sequel with a female cast.

No. 301943

i'm on the fence about this one. the comments are all super positive but i was like hmm we'll see. maybe i'll play it, idk. i think maybe they're trying to combine persona-style gameplay and characters with a sort of smt story and setting. agree with the characters being ugly, i think the fairy is cute tho. looks like another amanozako from smt 5 to me.

It's very different from her JP VA, but it fitted her very well hahah.

It surprised me they’re changing ALL the VAs though, Junpei’s was going away for sure due to being a sexual harasser, but I thought the rest would stay. I listened to bits from the new VAs and they seem fitting for the most part, the only one I got my doubts on is Akihiko.

when i first played p3 FES, i had a crush on junpei and hated yukari. i have no idea why but i was 16 and literally retarded. i think i changed my mind when i was 18. yukari is super cute and i like her attitude and backstory. i love her design too. junpei is just a retarded coombrained moid. there's absolutely no fucking way the dude's hard drive isn't full of the most depraved shit known to man. what was i tinking.

Mitsuru deserved better than this… Why did they even felt the need to replace the whole cast, specially when Tara did such a good job as Mitsuru and Elizabeth? I don't even believe she's gay, with that ~queer~ on her bio she's most likely a spicy straight TRA.

Glad you saw the light haha Yukari is one of the best P3 characters. I specially loved her S-Link with FeMC, I just know she would browse LC. I don't get how people can like Junpei, he was kinda ok during the Chidori arc and a bit on his S-link, but everything before and after that is unbearable.

New Persona models (and new Persona games in general) are so soulless.
It's so bright and saturated… I loved the dingy vibes of Persona 3, but ofc they're trying to morph it into P5. Ugh. And no femc alone makes me not want to play this - along with the fact that Kenji as a character hasn't been erased from this game entirely kek

i agree, kanji is one of my fav p4 characters. and he's hilarious and super loveable in the p4 anime.

yukari was kind of supposed to be somewhat "bitchy" though… she had no idea what really happened to cause her dad's death and her mom and her had a strained relationship. she literally doesn't trust mitsuru from the get-go due to her father owning the company her dad worked at so she has her defenses up, it's completely understandable. when she gets her ultimate persona it's because she reaches out to have a real friendship with mitsuru, she softens up and becomes kinder it's literally her character arc. coomers just self-insert into junpei when literally any self-respecting woman would be a bitch to him. moids don't fucking understand or appreciate well written female characters. that's why makotoad was such a hit for p5 faggots, she's got the personality of a string bean and seems easily manipulated because she kinda fucking is.

i miss the soul of the earlier persona games, especially the 2 duology.

and same, i thought the kitchen scene with yukari looks cute but it's kinda odd seeing everything so clean looking and HD. to be fair i'm extremely biased in general to older graphics and retro style games anyway. if they ever touch p1 or p2 again i'd hope it'd be as close to the originals as possible and nothing fancy and shiny like this. then again i don't really like how zoomers have gotten into p2 the past years but it's because i'm selfish and dun wanna share my special niche weeb game with them.

They didn't even try to be subtle, I remember when P5 wasn't even released yet and the very first trailer where we saw Yusuke for half a second everyone was shitting themselves and spamming "OMG OMG JUN??? JUN??? OMG HE LOOKS LIKE JUN!!!" on tumblr. But Yusuke only looks like Jun, Akechi's role is more similar to Jun's. Then there's Ann being Lisa 2.0 and her most direct and personal antagonist also being a deranged pedo who targeted her friend, Makoto and Sae being Tatsuya 2.0 and Katsuya 2.0 but way more boring. Honestly I think it's stupid to claim Atlus is pretending that they forgot about P1 and P2 when P5 is so inspired by P2 and P3 is basically a Snow Queen Quest sequel.

I almost always use the P2 and SMT if… costumes just because I'm getting sick of the horrible P5R battle theme. The original battle theme in P5 is so much better but there's no way to exclusively hear it unfortunately. And the Seven Sisters' uniform look great on top of that.

No I get it. I like the song from P5 vanilla but I don't like having a battle theme with lyrics. It's annoying because you also have the playable characters and bosses talking all the fucking time during battles, it gets distracting. That also applies to P4, but it didn't bother me at all in P3 for some reason.

do you use japanese or english voices? my first playthrough i had english on and the battles became so fucking annoying so the 2nd time i played p5 and now with p5r i have had japanese on simply because its less annoying when i don't understand what they're saying lol.

>that was why we got no raidou costumes on the switch?
I think so. iirc the Korean version of the SMT3 remaster doesn't have Raidou at all either which is really weird because I'm sure Dante is still an optional DLC for them so it's not like Dante replaces Raidou entirely in that case.

>do you use japanese or english voices?

I started playing P5 vanilla at a guy's place (a friend of a friend) and he was retarded so he didn't believe me when I said he could download a patch for free to get the Japanese voice acting until I was 20h into the game. He accidentally deleted my save file so I beat Madarame and did some stuff after that almost only in English and it sounded so fucking bad. Thank god I didn't reach the arc where Futaba is introduced because her American voice actress said she made her sound like she's autistic on purpose because that's her headcanon iirc. The same voice actress who made Asahi in SMT4A sound way too fucking annoying despite Asahi being a great character imo.

I'm in the middle of P5R right now and I'm playing it with a French translation and with the Japanese voice acting and it's so much better. Ryuji sounded stupid and childish in English, and now in Japanese and French he actually sounds like a troublemaker who ACTUALLY swears every five seconds. Even Morgana swears once or twice to insult him which is funny as fuck. It's insane how obsessed with censorship and making games family friendly American localizers are. Hearing Ryuji saying "effing" out loud instead of "fuck" and "fucking" all the time in a game where the first story is explicitly about a pedophile assaulting his teenage students was super weird like. What a strange sense of priority. It's not exactly a family friendly game and late teenagers, who are parts of the target demographic, swear way more than that irl.

No. 302947

>and now in Japanese and French Ryuji actually sounds like a troublemaker who ACTUALLY swears every five seconds

NTA but I'm glad to hear he swears like a sailor in French too, I'm playing P5R in Spanish and they translated him the same way. I dunno if the EU localization is better or worse than the US one since my JP level is akin to a preschooler, but at least I’m glad that for P5R they didn’t fully follow the English one and actually made the characters talk normally. I’m enjoying the game much more thanks to the new translation, ENG was so stale.

In the other hand, the EU translations for P3P, P4G and P4U suck so much because they made a direct translation from ENG and called it a day (they didn’t even bother to check the JP scrip, the ENG P4U translation is butchered and the same mistakes are present in the EU one). Also in ESP, for the female route in P3P they didn’t even change the male gendered adjectives/nouns towards her most of the time lmao.

I played P3P and P5G in English in their original consoles so I didn't know that. That sucks, especially because they were translated in other languages after P5R iirc.

Now the fandom has more of a female fanbase which would be amazing if most of them weren't gendies and/or fujoshis. I was talking on Twitter with another woman who's into the series and she said the only reason she played it was because you could romance Jun and she loves kweer representation.
I feel like a lot of modern P2 fans are like that, as well as forcing gendie shit onto random characters whilst ignoring 99% of their actual characterization (as well as the plot). Sorry for my autistic ranting nonnas… I think I need to just stick to mainline SMT.

I skimmed your links and they seem interesting, I need to sit down to read them more thoroughly. Something about these kinds of sites warm my heart.

I found about this P2 site a while ago and I liked it (I found it cute how it was IS only in 1999 and then in 200 it turned into IS+EP). The little drawings are adorable and it has info I haven't seen anywhere else, like translations of parts of the P2 fanbook.


First the novels of another game I like and now the P2 anthologies, I shouldn't have skipped my french classes kek
Over here they barely licence any manga even if its source is popular (the P5 one got licensed 4 months ago for example).

I'm curious though, is the french edition the same size as the japanese one? I imported some anthologies from japan and it surprised me they're a chunk bigger than your usual manga.

I’m finishing P5R right now (just started the 3rd semester) and ugh, I don’t even know if I want P6 anymore. I played this series in release order since the PSP versions of P1-3 are awfully easy to pirate, I loved P1-2, P3 is the weird middle child (but I ended up loving it thanks to all its supplementary media), but P4-5 were unbearable for me.

Specially P5, it just drags itself for 130 hours with content that barely has substance, the characters lose all their personality and just become a static anime trope after their arcs that last like 5 minutes, and the game itself seems like it’s too scared to actually make any social commentary in case it offends anyone. I just hope this very last arc is at least mildly interesting. And P4 wasn't much better, but at least the story was a bit more entertaining until they blamed it all on a god

From what I know, the head writer for Persona changed (he was the one who wrote the 3rd semester and P5S, I think? But since I haven’t played these yet I can’t comment on the quality) so that gives me a bit of hope, but if P6 decides to follow P5’s footsteps and ends up being another +100h game with a stale story I’m calling it a day and just stick to P1-3.

Yeah, all Google pulls up nowadays are AI-generated articles made to rank high on SEO unfortunately . I usually use these search engines if I want to find old/obscure pages

https://www.oldavista.com/ - Where I found that P2 site, it searchs for archives of defunct websites.
https://www.marginalia.nu/ - It searches for sites that are still up but badly optimised for current-day web standards, personal sites, and similar.
https://wiby.me/ - I don't use this one much, but it exists as well.

Neither of them are fully optimized, so they miss lots of potential results and such, but they can be a good start

Which game? And to answer your question, I assume it's the same size. The manga has three volumes so it wasn't compiled into just one or two by the publishing company. I don't know where you're from but I'm going to guess you're American because whenever I see Americans posting the manga they read with pictures of the actual translated books they almost always look larger than what we have and what Japan has.

>the characters lose all their personality and just become a static anime trope after their arcs that last like 5 minutes
I'm not tha far into the game but imo Makoto COMPLETELY ruins the main characters' dynamic once she becomes more important. She's bland and stupid as fuck but just like Naoto she's the one character that parrots what other characters say but with a calm voice so all the characters go "omg you're sooooo smart". Morgana is shit too.

No. 305561

i love to hate makoto, i hate how scrotes coom over her so hard, just shows they like bland, passive women. i've heard hifumi was supposed to originally be on the team but they scrapped that for boring ass makotoad. that would have been eons better.

No. 305565

Totally agree. I played P5 when I was a teenager and didn't really like anyone, now that I'm playing Royal as an adult for whatever reason I started liking Ryuji, Ann and Yusuke a lot more. Especially Ann. Still dislike Makoto though. She really does ruin the dynamic, I hate how she's written. It's a shame because I think she had the potential to be a better character. I think her feelings of uselessness, how she feels pressured by and like a leech on her sister but there's only so much she can do as a student, how she impulsively tries to prove that she's not useless etc are very fitting of a character her age, but she turns into a complete Mary Sue after that. Feels very forced. She makes me think of a worse Twilight Sparkle kek.

No. 305566

Same nonna. I remember when it first came out and my brother and his friends thought Makoto was the end all be all. She's literally a worse version of Sae. Also I don't know how much of Hifumi's character was changed, but if she was the same, she would've been such a cool teammate

No. 305567

>her feelings of uselessness, how she feels pressured
Kinda tinfoilish, but maybe that was some leftover remnants of Hifumi's teammate storyline? Iirc Hifumi's mom was a big pressure on Hifumi in her confidant story and I can see Hifumi thinking of herself being useless. I honestly forgot Makoto felt useless because of the Mary Sue stuff and I have a hard time seeing her as being insecure and impulsive

Team Hifumi ♥
i would bet that's where her out of nowhere "omg im so useless (sad face)" comes from, leftovers from Hifumi's character arc. Like, Makoto is student council president and does very well academically and the fatty principal fat fat literally asks her to stalk akira, ryuji, and ann for no apparent reason imo. she's a complete mary sue and useless in battle, moids just like her stupid ass coom costume (fwiw i don't like ann's costume either, it's creepy to see high schoolers in latex). Hifumi is a badass shogi player, elegant, beautiful, and well-read. Makoto is just one of those idiots who has no interests and can regurgitate information robotically on an exam.

I hated it because it was obvious Atlus just wanted to copy Tatsuya and Katsuya's relationship, even just a little, but they somehow managed to make it uninteresting all because Makoto herself is uninteresting. And she proved Sae's point by getting in trouble with some shitty yakuza willingly. Sae isn't playable and she feels more relevant than her playable sister.

No. 305589

Hifumi was never meant to be a teammate unfortunately. Makoto's beta design had long hair and her costume was like a traditional japanese warrior, but then they scrapped that and kinda recicled the design and vibe to make Hifumi. Atlus actually does this a lot with their designs, I think it's cool.

I'm not from the US, but yeah it may be a regional thing, now that you mention it when I see manga shelves from the US the sizing seems to be pretty inconsistent. The only manga I have bought from Japan are anthologies and all of them are bigger than our usual manga size, so I assumed it had to do with the kind of comic. Unfortunately P2 is the only Persona entry who doesn't have a manga adaptation of its story, all its comics are anthologies so that's why I asked.

(The novels I mentioned are Kirby ones. Yeah it has novels kek)

No. 305737

Anthologies are always bigger, including in Japan. No idea why. Yeah the P2 manga is more like a spinoff with other characters but they're studying in Tatsuya and Lisa's school. I should read it again someday and give a summary if it's not available in English. There's a Katsuya cameo though but I think that's it.

Thanks for replying, I'm glad they're keeping the original size then, they're a joy to read. Doujin/zines and anthologies kind of spoiled me and now I hate reading on the usual A5 size, I feel like a grandma with poor eyesight kek
I remember reading a fan translation some time ago, but it was only one of the volumes if I recall correctly. Both the story and some of the artists’ styles were super cute, I should track them again. I have also seen screenshots of the EP gang, so I’m guessing they made anthologies for that game too, but maybe they’re stuck in Japan.

No. 305911

Anthologies tend to not make it outside of Japan even if they're adaptations of a known IP. I'm abroad right now but as soon as I'm home I'll read the manga again because it's been a while and I'll post a summary. This way you and other curious anons could learn more about it.

I love VNs, maybe I can endure the battle system then, I will try playing it when I finish with my small backlog.

P5R third semester is basically Maki's story from the SEBEC route. Except this time the Kandori (Maruki) is a nice person and instead of Nyarlathotep, it's Azathoth, Nyarly's father.

P5 in general is essentially a mix of both IS and EP. >>302821 And nonnie here is right that P3 is basically an SQQ sequel.

Sumaru is based on Yokohama, but thanks to hidden files in P5R and that Strikers game, Sumaru City basically doesn't exist anymore and now it's only Yokohama. IIRC P3's Iwatodai was based on Kobe but changed it to be Tokyo which makes the lore even weirder considering how so much crap is left unnoticed since it's in Tokyo now.

IV was my intro to SMT as a whole and my favorite thing about it was how varied the demon designs were, ranging from cute pets to hyper-designed monsters, there's pretty much a demon for everyone.

If anything they cut her off because there's one (two if you count Elizabeth) same-sex romance route if you play as FeMC, I don't think dating men as a woman is a problem to them.
Though the most likely reason they're remaking just the main male route its because RE is just a test on how to use UE on Persona games, they said RE is here to mark a new era for the series, so they just want to get out there the bare minimum to make P-studio get used to the engine and the new director/composer. I wouldn't be surprised if later they release a complete remake edition with FeMC and/or The Answer.
That said I wish they could cater to the female fans more, specially when the majority of the fandom and the ones who do the most fanwork/free advertising are female in Japan.

Nonnas I'm interested in playing Persona 3 but the different versions confuse me. It looks like FemC is only available on P3P, but the maps are more fully fleshed out on P3 on PS2. Is it worth having fewer explorable environments for FemC? Should I play both? I've only played Persona 5 but I enjoyed it so much, I really want to get into the rest of the series. (Also, anyone remember Tokyo Mirage Sessions? What a weird game. An SMT/Fire Emblem mashup? I had a lot of fun with it though, especially as a Wii U games.)

This is old news but Atlus games have such a weird attitude towards women, like TMS and P5 both criticize the sexualization of girls but also indulge in it too. Especially P5. What a way to shit on the message of the entire first palace of the game by having the rest of the game continue to treat Ann as someone defined by her sexual attractiveness to men. Plus Makoto's outfit, the unnecessary boob jiggle in Haru's teamup scenes. And you have to see these over and over in the battle scenes.


I like Makoto but I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought she turned into a Mary Sue. I'm a sucker for "rule-following good student learns to be their own person," but she gets treated like such a genius by the rest of the cast for making common sense observations in a calm voice. And she definitely changes the vibe once she joins. Futaba is another one I like but who completely changed the chemistry of the team. It felt like the game totally halted to focus on her once she was introduced, and she replaced Morgana as the commentary character. Such weird decisions around the characters in this game.

Play P3P (today is its 14th anniversary btw!) & then Reload for a complete experience. Due to P3P's format, you will miss lots of little information that the 3D models give you, on top of missing cutscenes. It was my introduction to Persona & with all its faults I still enjoyed it & today P3 is my favorite out all games, playing as a female character is so refreshing. I would either watch the cutscenes on YT or the anime after playing, and look a playthru of The Answer for story closure.
Since you're coming from P5, keep in mind the game is 14 years old like I said before, and it was the game that kicked off Persona like we know today, so its age shows. Don't expect 345879 activities to do or puzzles inside dugneons, P3's gameplay is very simple and outside S-Links & exploring the main dugneon from time to time you don't have anything else to do.

I had negative interest in P5T, I disliked P5 and I can't get into TRPGs, but I downloaded the huge data leak this morning (I think it's a mix of in-game assets with some arwork pages) and just sat down to look everything & woah I can't believe I want the game now.
I only watched…. one trailer and half, so I don't know how the story goes, but going thru the out of context art/cut-ins made it seem interesting, not anything groundbreaking but I got really curious about some of the characters' relationships. The DLC episode has the most cut-ins and seems like a pretty cute story, so I think I will wait for the base game to get a price drop since the dlc looks like a must-have.
I wasn't a fan of the art either, but looking at the in-game art and sprites made it work really well, I love how expresive they are (the translation to 3D isn't good though, but as 2D it works wonders), some of the concept art is totally eye candy.

I just got P3 Reload, I'm not an old fan because I've only played P5 and Catherine when it comes to Atlus games. The visuals are beautiful and I was excited because everyone online kept saying how much better and deeper the story/writing/social links were in p3 and now I'm playing it and… it's very coomery? I feel like there's a lot of moidy jokes about "getting girls" and being perverts with the female characters… is this how it's going to be? P5 had its moments but it wasn't this bad imo but maybe it's because I expected it to be more mature.

Aw shit sorry I hurt your feelings by talking about P3 in a Megaten thread, I didn't realize I needed to play every single fucking Atlus game to be able to talk about the newest one on an imageboard. God I hate fuckers like you, omg anon only played one game so she can't talk about any of the other ones!! Are you going to go scream fake fan now or something? Redditor sounding ass.

Personatards are literal subhumans. Best not to take them seriously

I haven't played Reload yet, but at least in the original it gets better as the game goes on. Junpei mellows down a bit later and the fanservicey scenes are mostly in the initial months were there's barely any plot going on.

Oh good to know. The gameplay and concept is fun and interesting so far and I'm glad the coomery shit goes away later. Apparently Reload is pretty faithful to the original so hopefully I won't find some extra coomer content.

Looks like they're re-releasing SMT 5 with a bunch of new content and probably a new ending too.

Might pick it up when it goes on sale, wasn't a fan of the original game but I'm glad we can play it on actual consoles now and I love the designs for the new villains. I don't find having another Atlus re-release girl for the… 7th? time as much as other people seem to do, but it's wild they added another character when the original cast was bare bones at best.
I find interesting they took notes from Devil Survivor 2 for this, I hope the new story fleshes out the original characters even with the new girl around.

I have the OG SMTV and got the law ending after doing all the sidequests except the Shiva boss fight, I think I'll just stick to it and get the other endings later and maybe get this one once it's cheaper for the new route if it's different enough. I feel like I'm the only one who didn't mind the story being barebone, my only issue was how it became non existent in the third area after Sahori's death and until you beat the boss in the dungeon right before Ueno. And I just disliked the third area in general anyway.

Human demon summoners will be playable so it's likely we'll get more development for the already established characters. At least the new girl and Atsuta are playable at some point. I wouldn't be surprised if that were the case with Tao as well.

nonnas i'm desperate. where is the p3 fanfic. i thought there'd be an influx of new fanfic after reload, but it's been over a month now and there's hardly anything, i'm losing my mind. i've read all the good stuff a zillion times. i tried looking for old fic on livejournal and dreamwidth, too, but it's a mess to navigate and half of the entries and journals are purged.

i will read anything at this point. fuck me up. or even doujin?? like where is it.

Oh that's a shame to hear I expected the P3 tag to be revived as well, I usually only check P3 fics every few months since my favorite ship tag moves slowly so I haven't checked the tag in awhile.
You mentioned DW/LJ already, but these have some P3 fics
This person has only scanned/translated P2 douins and novels so far, but I think she might scan some P3 ones in the future
Some P3 doujins, the Mediafire links still work (it includes the first Ryomina doujin by the P3 mangaka) - https://pandora-scans.livejournal.com/6955.html

I also got picrel, first one are 3 connected aikoto doujins & second one is the MC using Aigis to spy on the male party members. I don't have a scanner so all I can offer are those phone photos, but if you want I dont have any problems uploading it to catbox or something (I can't give you the link to my drive here since its connected to my actual email)

in p3/p4 the coomery stuff is really just junpei/yosuke with the peak being beach scene/camping trip. persona is not too bad as far as coomerisms go. also in p3's beach scene they make fun of a tranny being a pedo towards them but i wouldn't be surprised if they changed that in reload.
if you want a more mature experience i recommend the p2 duology, if you don't mind random encounter battles in dungeons. fwiw i hate randoms but the story and characters were so cool and different it was worth it, and innocent sin is easy asf. if only fatlus would bring back cool adult characters for p6 but they will likely keep going in the uwu anime cliché high school direction because most anime fans are pedos or actual children, sigh.

I know no shit about the whole emo scene but it looks so nice. I wish I had a PC to be able to play with it, Atlus did us REALLY dirty when it comes to costumes in P3RE, even removing some that were in the original games (where are the santa outfits!?). My favs are Aigis, Makoto and Yukari and they killed it in that mod, they look so cute. Saw some fanart of it already, I hope it continues.

Also talking about fanart, even thought P3RE sold a million copies, it seems it hasn't attracted too many new people to the fandom…? I have seen lots of people starting P3/Persona with it, but when it comes to fan content there is not much new blood. In a way it makes me glad since it means less dumb discourse made up by newies, but I'm also a bit sad about it.

The new trailer is awesome. New Nahobino form is really cute. I wonder if Aogami dies at some point… Did something happen to Yuzuru too? That would explain why Tsukuyomi coupled with the Protagonist instead.

Because they're insecure as usual. But basically it's a mechanic where you can bond with Aogami and improve your skills as result and there are a lot of occasions for it.
