Significant Persona project announcement due May 2
posted on 04.27.14 at 01:02 AM EDT by (@salromano)
Watch the "Shadow Hour TV Persona Hour" broadcast next Friday.

Persona 3 The Movie #2

Atlus will host a “Shadow Hour TV Persona Hour” Niconico live broadcast on May 2 at 11:30 p.m. Japan time.

The first half of the broadcast will include a preview of the June 7-due anime movie Persona 3 The Movie #2: Midsummer Knight’s Dream, as well as a digest of the previously released Persona 3 The Movie #1: Spring of Birth.

The second half of the broadcast will feature wonderful guests presenting the latest information on the series, with significant announcements such as a new Persona project scheduled.

Now, it’s entirely possible this project is not game-related at all. So keep your expectations in check. The broadcast will be live-streamed here.

Thanks, Game Jouhou.

    I swear if they don’t show or say anything new about persona 5 I’m gonna do things…

    • Eternal Wing

      How can you think this is related to Persona 5? It’s most likely Persona anime stuff.

      • pixxxelz

        But is coming out this year! And we don’t know anything about it yet

        • Eternal Wing

          Well, the thing is the live broadcast is not even being metioned by Persona official Twitter.

      • surakian

        We’re almost midway through 2014 with nothing on the game even though P5 comes out this year in Japan. That’s why.

        • Eternal Wing

          Atlus always shows their games about 3 months before the release dates (example: Persona4, Catherine, feel free to check the source).
          Not to mention the show is being hosted by the anime production of Persona 3 The Movie.

          • surakian

            I know…I’m just being overly hopeful xD

        • Wolf Star

          Persona 5 comes out winter 2014 in Japan that’s what it says in the trailer. Also p5 for US comes out in 2015. It’s gonna take a while.

          • surakian

            Yeah, I know. “P5 comes out this year in Japan”

        • Anime10121

          Its not guaranteed that it’ll be out this year in Japan, Winter 2014 means the entire winter of 2014 which starts at the end of December and ends in March of 2015…

      • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

        Dammit! That makes me lower my expectations to 0. Dammit all to hell.

      • OverlordZetta

        Persona 4 Arena The Animation, anyone?

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      What things. >;3

  • PrinceHeir

    Mostly a Persona 3 game on Vita :P

    Persona 3 Dream.

    • azureknight

      I feel guilty for wanting this, but I want it so badly.

    • michel

      Hahah, I wish!…

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Nah. That would be pushing it.

    • Blueberry

      Persona 3 Dream indeed! :)))))

    • OverlordZetta

      I’d be cool with it. P3P was lacking in many areas, they could do well making a proper port that doesn’t have to cut corners just to exist.

  • surakian

    If there is no new Persona 5 trailer, make me slave (obviously I probably will be)

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Could be. It’s the most likely thing imo.

  • Impressionnant

    Most likely another spin-off.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      It is possible but I don’t see it.

      • DAT Bird From DAT Cage

        Possible to Pachinka u

      • OverlordZetta

        So you think 6 being announced is more likely?

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          Nope. That is at the very bottom of the list of being likely.

    • OverlordZetta

      You mean most definitely. The only alternative is 6, which isn’t happening, unless it’s not related to any game at all.

      • Impressionnant

        Well, it’s either a spin-off or a remake. I’m actually surprised they haven’t remade P3, to coincide with the movies.

  • $61526767

    > Persona mobile
    > Another milked persona enhance version

    I don’t know what could it be, but my body is getting a weird feeling. I’m all for it!

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      > NOOOOOOO (there already is one, btw).
      > Maybe, but I doubt it.

  • ocaritna

    May I dream Persona Collection on Vita?

    • $61526767

      IF that were true, i would be throwing my money and credit cards till i have it.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      That would be great, but no.

    • Blueberry

      My money is on the table. Take it Atlus!!!

  • bloodiOS

    I’m thinking a new Persona spin-off as an exclusive launch title for the Xbox One in Japan.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Hahahahah. No.

    • MrFinalgamer

      That would be some shit…

  • FlareKnight

    Oh boy, time to prepare for some more Atlus trolling. Though not sure they can top the last major stream they did XD.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      What do you mean?

      • FlareKnight

        The whole Persona 5 (and all the other games) announcements coming via that super trolling stream they had going. Whole thing seemed designed to drive everyone crazy until finally…once it appeared it was all over they dropped the P5 bomb.

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          Right… well that one was actually for games and had multiple announcements. This is a single non-game related announcement.

  • Elvick

    Persona 3: Complete. Or Persona 2: Complete. I want both.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Skip the P3C (FES is good enough besides the couple extras P added). P2C I would love though.

      • Blueberry

        P3FES is good enough, I agree, but only for those who can play it. When the have the pipeline to Vita after P4G, they totally should use it to let us PS2/PS3-less players able to play that Persona 3 goodness.
        P2C would require more work to get up to Vita/PS3/PS4 quality since they can’t just upscale the 2D art of the PSP ports. Though they definitely should release both P2 PSP games in the west in one way or another.

    • OverlordZetta

      True, full blown remakes of 1 or 2 would be awesome.

  • Audie Bakerson

    Hopefully they don’t try writing anything in English this time…

    • surakian

      “You are slave. Want emancipation?” is the pinnacle of the English language. Excuse you. lol

  • shogunknight

    I think it will be more info on persona 5. Like the character reveal or something else

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      That would be my guess too.

    • OverlordZetta

      That’s not a new project announcement, though, it’s revealing more about an existing one.

  • Raoni Marques

    Persona 4-2. Calling it now (and wishing it’s true, even though it’s never going to happen)

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Haha. No. That is what P4A and P4A2 and P4D and PxDN are.

      • DAT Bird From DAT Cage

        Haha

        No

        Pachinkaing your gar

    • OverlordZetta

      It would be more like Persona 4-5 at this point, with two fighting games and a rhythm game taking up 2 through 4. Maybe even Persona 4-6 depending on if they can make Q canon.

      You can deny it all you want, but them’s the breaks.

      • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

        4-6 because of Naoto LN/Manga not Q. Because Q is confirmed to not be canon.

        • OverlordZetta

          Q hasn’t been confirmed as any such thing yet.

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            Yah it has.

            • OverlordZetta

              In what way?

              If they end it with “and everyone was returned to their proper times without their memories,” boom -it’s canon.

              • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                If they lose their memories then what kind of canon would that be. That would be bullshit and you know it.

                • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                  But… That already happens anyway? XD

                  • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                    How?

                    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                      What do you mean “How?” ? Their memories were erased in the bad end and they returned back to their daily lives, ignorant of the upcoming apocalypse (except for Aegis anyway). So if you’re claiming them doing that would be bullshit, it’s a bit too late for that, lol.

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      You are referring to P3 then eh. I forget what happens at the end beside Minato dying. I wouldn’t really call it memory being erased but eh.

    • Rogerrmark

      Since the Persona Team is probably fully ocuppied with P5 now and Etrian Odyssey’s team is making Persona Q..not sure. Maybe another port.

    • MrFinalgamer

      If it’s this…kill me now

  • OverlordZetta

    P3 Vita, P4A Vita, or something out of left field like Q or Dancing again.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      P4A Vita would be lovely. Hopefully P4A2 soon after.

      • OverlordZetta

        I’d certainly love it, but you never know.

        I’m meaning more towards P3 Vita or something out of left field. Might be an announcement for an anime adaptation of Arena even.

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          Since it is on an anime thing, I am thinking it will be an anime thing. Which is saddening but eh. Anime version of Arena wouldn’t be surprising.

  • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

    My hopes went up but then I was brought down to earth. This will be interesting to see nonetheless.

  • Jason

    Any Persona news makes me happy :-)

  • ヴィンチェンゾ Vincenzo

    The broadcast will focus on P3 Film, so I guess it will be some kind of full content version of the game, hopefully on Vita.

    • Logash

      I would also not mind this because the only experience I have with Persona 3 is P3P and even though I beat it, I would love to have the full visual experience on a portable system like the Vita.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Or something else completely like an anime adaption of something or something else. Why do people think it is P3?

      • ヴィンチェンゾ Vincenzo

        I personally think about it because it would complete this P3 revival project, that is, the success of the film would boost the sales of this possible “complete” verion of P3, and I think Vita could be the platform because of P4G. Although, it could be something not relatied to an actual videogame project as well, so I am conscious hype might not be fulfilled.

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          Like I said FES is the complete version minus two things that are superfluous.

          • ヴィンチェンゾ Vincenzo

            I don’t think being able to control the whole party is superflous

            • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

              Yah it is. It is a luxury.

  • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

    I certainly wouldn’t be surprised if there was a P3 announced for PS3/Vita at this rate.

    • OverlordZetta

      They’re definitely not announcing another PS3 Persona (and not one that’s a remake) with how long 5 is taking.

      • Blueberry

        I certainly hope it is though! They would probably only need a team of like five people working full-time on a P3VITA port since they already have the porting pipeline after P4G.

      • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

        I doubt another P3 game would detract them from P5. P5 isn’t FFXV, man.

        • OverlordZetta

          It’s not that I think it would detract, it’s that clearly them + making PS3 game = long time.

          • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

            Unless they’ve been keeping a tight lid on it and they’ve been working on it all along.

            D’ohoho

            • OverlordZetta

              Perhaps! I won’t deny that possibility. I wouldn’t count on it, but stranger things have happened.

              • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                Yeah, I wouldn’t count on it either, lol. Anything can happen though, I guess :p

    • Blueberry

      I’ve wanted a P3 for VITA for several years! Persona 3 would be so wonderful. I’ve been wanting to play P3 since 2009 but I haven’t bought PS2/PS3 for environmental and economic reasons. I couldn’t accept that P3P didn’t have those lovely cutscenes, it’s probably fine for a second play through but I just won’t be the full experience.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Why do people think this? Because of the movies?!

      • Manny Being Manny

        Probably because they’re announcing it during a Persona 3 event.

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          Persona 3 Movie/Anime event…

          • MrFinalgamer

            It’ll be redundant as fuck to have an anime based on the movie, unless the Anime adapts The Answer, or FeMC…actually, I would like to see that XD

            • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

              Makes more sense than talking about a video game. But FeMC is not canon.

      • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

        No… Because P3 is one of their most successful Persona titles, that’s why.

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          Right because they need a 4th version of it?

          • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

            There are a lot of things they don’t necessarily “need”, but they create them anyway. As far as I’m concerned, they didn’t need Persona 3 Portable since F.E.S. was good enough to finish it, but P3P came out anyway. They also didn’t need these movies for P3, yet here they are.

            • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

              Well P3P was nice to have because it was a version of Persona 3 you could take on the go. Otherwise no it wasn’t. The movies are nice for people who want to experience the story but not play a 100 hour RPG that some say is difficult.

              • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                Well, more like it was a watered down version of P3 you could take on the go. I’d love to see a more complete version on the Vita, like P4G was. It kept what made P4 great and just added to it rather than take away from it like P3P did with P3.

                Still, while the movies may be great on their own… They are hardly considered a substitute for the game(s).

                • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                  You could still play it, and get the main story. *shrug* Plus it added the much needed player controlled characters. It is just not necessary.

                  *shrug* Some people will think it just that. I am sure the movies cover the story well enough. The only thing you will miss are the S.Links which are just add-ons.

                  • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                    Well yes, you could get the main story and it added player controlled characters, but look at what cost. They changed a bit to fit it on the PSP UMD, so it would be nice to have something more like P3/FES while having those additional features and characters added in P3P :p

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      It just isn’t a good idea.

                    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                      Well, that’s not for us to decide. We’re just consumers, soooo… Yeah. Japan has a tendency to constantly push out shit that people don’t need any more of though. Just take a look at One Year War material for Mobile Suit Gundam. Ughhhhh.

                      Enough already, Japan!

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      Yes because we consumers are so stupid (some of us are, but that isn’t the point) and don’t know what we want or what makes sense. I am not sure what you are referring to with One Year War and Gundam but… ok. xD

                    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                      I’m just saying a lot of the time, businesses make really stupid decisions, regardless of what the consumers want or don’t want. As for the Gundam comparison… They’ve released over 20 One Year War games, telling the same fucking story, over and over again.

                      They’ve also released a lot of gunpla of the same unit from the series when they could be focusing on releasing gunpla or games of less explored stories.

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      Yah… businesses are stupid and focus on money first and foremost. At least AAA companies.

                      I still am not very keen on the Gundam thing. I know next to nothing about Gundam. I also have no idea what gunpla are.

                    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

                      >Yah… businesses are stupid and focus on money first and foremost.

                      Which is exactly why I said I wouldn’t be surprised if this was another P3 game. P3 is one of their most successful Persona games, along with P4, and since P4 is getting love already with all of the different iterations, it wouldn’t surprise me if they cashed in on another P3 game for Vita (and/or PS3) right now due to the movies and whatnot.

                      You could probably expect it to be released about 5-6 months after the third movie has been shown in theaters.

                    • MrFinalgamer

                      And they could market it as:

                      “Still sad as fuck about what happened? Don’t understand why he died? Play P3P:FES, and see why he died…oh and you can date Akihiko with a new female story!”

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      I don’t see it happening, there is no point in it, but who knows man. I just don’t see it happening especially not at this event.

          • OverlordZetta

            We didn’t really need P3P – some might argue we REALLY didn’t need it given the downgrades, and considering those, a “proper” handheld P3 might actually make sense.

            • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

              We don’t need P3P but it was nice to take it with you. The downgrades were there because PSP is not good enough I guess. But no a “proper” P3 for portables does not make sense. 3 versions of a game are enough.

          • azureknight

            P3 Vita is the version we deserve, but not the one we need right now.

            • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

              It would be pretty silly if you ask me.

      • Samsara09

        persona 3 deserves a vita remake as much as persona 4.
        i hope Atlus realized that.Besides,I am gonna buy a vita.

        With persona 3 golden,persona 4,tales of hearts R and possibly Innocence R…we already have some of the best rpgs around in the vita.

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          Persona 3 already has a portable version. It doesn’t need a Vita version. And for the second time it will not be called Golden if it happens which I severely doubt at least with this event.

  • EX+

    Probably P3 for the VITA or something.
    All I know is that I want that Persona 5 to be shown a bit.

    • Logash

      All I want is one pic of one character. That will hold me off.

      • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

        lol Just ONE pic of ONE character. xD

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Why do people keep saying this! >.>
      Yah… everybody does.

      • MrFinalgamer

        Because the thing with P3 is that there’s no good version to play. Kind of like with P1. You either choose better music, or the better translation. With P3 is either the better battles system, or the better presentation (graphics, and the animated cutscenes)

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          P1 is a matter of opinion. Just saying.

          P3 FES is the better version as it includes The Answer. Only good thing in Portable besides being portable is the player controlled characters and minor extra content.

          • MrFinalgamer

            While they might only be a few, you gotta realize that you spend a good amount of time in dungeons, and using the gameplay. So fixing only one thing that is used for +30 hours is a needed fix.

            • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

              Not really. You can still play the game and beat it. It is a luxury and doesn’t constitute a WHOLE NEW game.

  • hisuikohaku

    Persona and Persona 2 characters on Ultimax, come on ATLUS.

  • Karl Patrick Jamero

    am I the only who thinks that another Arena Ultimax announcement is going to be made… Yukari and Junpei appeared in Arena last November, coinciding with the first P3 movie’s release… so could it be a Ken announcement this time? :p

    • OverlordZetta

      That’s not a new Persona project.

      They could still announce Ken during all this, but that wouldn’t be what this is referring to.

      • Karl Patrick Jamero

        true… still, anythings possible :D

  • Eder García

    “a new Persona project scheduled.” “it’s entirely possible this project is not game-related at all” … my logic guess: a concert or something TV related. everybody’s guess: new Persona game for Vita. unexpected guess: new Persona game for WiiU or 3DS

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Anime thing, or concert, or something. Yah those seem likely. My guess is not a new game for Vita I am smarter than to think it is that. lol Wii U or 3DS? Hahahah. That’s funny.

      • OverlordZetta

        Hey, Atlus actually does make a lot of 3DS games. Including an upcoming Persona one.

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          “Wii U” then. But no. It won’t be that.

          • Eder García

            how about Persona characters in SMT x FE?

            • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

              Nope. SMT =/= Persona

  • ayb_91

    If it is about Persona, then my wallet is ready. :3

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      What if it is a show exclusive to Japan? Your wallet is ready to buy a ticket and lodgings in a hotel as well as pay for the ticket and the fare back?

      • ayb_91

        Lol. Yeah why not? And why you always feel down? If you feel down, then don’t let the others to feel the same as you.

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          You must have a lot of money just lying around that trip without doing anything would probably cost you around $1k. I feel down because I do, don’t worry too much, if people feel as I do then that is no fault of mine.

          • ayb_91

            I hope you feel better. You and all of people. Peace.

  • Lucas Bueno

    Assuming its not TV related we have 3 options here

  • 罪罰

    Don’t get your hopes up, maybe it’s a play like Persona 4 had.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Probs man. I was hype but thanks to people like you I calmed myself back down to realization land and while it won’t be anything great I GUESS it is interesting… maybe… a little? No… who the fuck am I kidding it is pointless for people like me.

      • 罪罰

        Persona 3 on Vita is just too much, they’re busy with P5.

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          Exactly. Try to get that through some of the peoples’ heads here though.

          • 罪罰

            I’d rather break a brick with my tongue.

            • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

              A brick made of diamond? ;p

        • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

          Y’know, nothing precludes another studio porting P3. It’d only help their capitalization of the P3 franchise, what with the movies and all to do so. It need not be the main team, just a thought.

          • 罪罰

            Atlus isn’t a big studio that can afford to hire a whole studio to do something.

            • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

              Sega can…

            • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

              Atlus is owned by SEGA, they totally can afford it. Or did you forget this is the same company that has Arc Systems doing P4A and Ultimax; as well as P4: Dancing all Night?

  • Gammer21

    What about persona 5 on ps3/4 I hope so because putting It only on ps3 is shooting themselves in the foot (Sony not atlus)

    • persona13

      Not sure why so many people are so butthurt about Persona 5 not being on PS4. The PS3 still has a much larger user base than the PS4 and Atlus has never been a company that jumps at next gen so fast.

      • Sevyne

        Yeah, it’s really strange to me that anyone expected it to be on PS4. Sure, it would have been a pleasant surprise to me if it was, but I think it was always a given that it would be on PS3.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Nope. And how is it not Atlus shooting themselves in the foot?

      • Gammer21

        Hmm your right it both parties fault

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          Please tell me how Sony is at all at fault.

          • Gammer21

            They say in what system that the game is being made so u think a franchise as popular as person would help sell psv in Japan they would make it be on the new console

            • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

              I really don’t think Sony has any say where Atlus puts the game. Atlus just wanted to put it on PS3 because that is what they had been developing it for.

              • Gammer21

                You might be right but at the same time my opinion is that it should be both that way it’s best of both worlds

                • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                  I would love it to be on PS4 because I don’t own PS3 and I never will at this point. At least not for a long time. It just isn’t going to happen at least not at release and not for a while after.

                  • Gammer21

                    Yes sadly I had a ps3 but then sold it to get my ps4 so like u just up s**ts Creek without a paddle lol

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      I’ve never owned one. If I did I wouldn’t of sold it.

  • MrFinalgamer

    Proper remakes for Persona 2, or go bust! Although it’ll be either P3P: FES or some stupid play…

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      It won’t be a game. A stupid play is more likely.

  • nyobzoo

    persona 5 on both PS3/4

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Nope.

  • Sevyne

    As Sal says in the article, “Now, it’s entirely possible this project is not game-related at all. So keep your expectations in check.” This 100 times over.

    I have a feeling that this whole thing is going to end up with a bunch of people complaining that it isn’t a game, and it’s going to be incredibly annoying reading those comments when the time comes. Anybody here that has realistic expectations, brace yourselves for the shitstorm.

    I mean, we all know it’s Persona On Ice anyway.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      I am going to love reading the comments. I love seeing people being upset when I told them what it would be. Persona On Ice? xD Nah. But it will be a stupid show that is completely worthless.

      • Sevyne

        The Persona On Ice thing was just a joke, but it’ll probably be a show or manga or something.

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          I don’t see it being a manga.

          • Sevyne

            Probably not, but I’m just keeping my expectations in a reasonable place.

            • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

              That is why you expect it to be a show. Live show that nobody but Japan will have any reason to get hype for if even them… Persona live shows are just weird imo.

            • Samsara09

              Man,let yourself dream a little!You may get disappointed in may 2,but the joy of the dream itself is well worth it.

              You won’t be whining here in web either.You are too smart for this,I think.

              • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                No, no it isn’t. Better to not be crushed. Sevyne is being smart like me.

                • Samsara09

                  yeah,I might feel crushed,but I had fun a week dreaming about it.That’s fun…and,at least for me,will more than compensate for the probable disappointment.

                  Of course,it is just a week.If it were a month,a year or a decade it would be increasingly annoying…

                  • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                    Crushed or not crushed. I would take not crushed every time.

                    • Samsara09

                      your choice.I will respect it,sir.

              • Sevyne

                I’d rather be pleasantly surprised than crushingly disappointed. Pretty sure the best thing to do is keep expectations within reason.

                If it’s anything cool that’s game related then that’s neat, but I think they have enough on their plate with Persona already. It’s probably not really much.

                • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                  Exactly my thoughts Sevyne. I didn’t think I would ever meet somebody who shares my ideas (at least on this subject).

                  • Sevyne

                    Yeah, I’m not trying to be negative or anything (if people want to enjoy dreaming up great things then that’s fine). I just don’t want people to overhype themselves and then get all vocally pissed when it isn’t what they hyped themselves over.

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      I still think it is fun to watch them bitch about it. xD

                    • Sevyne

                      Some of it can be kind of amusing.

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      It’s like they WERE warned and yet they still blame it on the company or the site (messenger). I mean they (companies) shouldn’t hype things up so much if it is something nobody will care about but still.

                    • Samsara09

                      only a kid does this.People should be ashamed.

                      Well,Atlus promised 3 important annoucements before…and remember,the last one was persona 5.

                      I am not implying that this means Atlus is an 100% honest company that doesn’t induce hype on the fans just to troll them with a shitty reveal…but we should see how this plays out.

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      1) They’ve done some troll-y announcements. 2) This is an anime focused event.

                    • Samsara09

                      “The second half of the broadcast will feature wonderful guests presenting the latest information on the series, with significant announcements such as a new Persona project scheduled.”

                      this can be anything,indeed.but let’s just wait.People said in that big annoucement I spoke of that it wasn’t persona 5.It was impossible,they said.

                      Sorry for editing.Bad habit of mine.

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      Mhm. The first half being focused on anime lends itself to the project being the sane.

                    • Sevyne

                      You may not throw a tantrum over it if it’s not what you expect, but you’d be surprised at how many will (not only talking about this site either).

                    • Samsara09

                      I know,people are idiots.Still,it is gonna be fun seeing that.
                      “Tantrum”…I liked your choice of words.

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      This site is pretty tame usually. Just go to NeoSHIT for it.

                    • Sevyne

                      Yeah, the gaf will probably have a meltdown.

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      *nods* I don’t know about 4ch but I am sure they will be good for it too. And Tumblr even, maybe. I dunno about Reddit. Possibly IGN?

                    • Samsara09

                      the entire internet will burst into flames,and we,the smart ones,will be watching it all,with popcorn in hands.

                      Don’t worry!Can’t be that bad.

                      Well,I have classes this week.It is bad enough!Doubt you got something worse than this.

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      Classes are part of it. A specific one.

                    • Samsara09

                      Thankfully thusday doesn’t have classes,it is a holiday,at least to me :D

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      I wish I could have thursday off. :(

                    • Samsara09

                      hahahahahahaha,guess I just got a reason to enjoy my day off.Better not waste it.

                      oh well,think positively!It can’t get worse.

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      It can get worse. Which would lead people to say I shouldn’t be so down as there are people worse off than me. But I don’t care.

                    • Sevyne

                      Gamefaqs will be amongst the worst of them too.

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      Yah… To think I was once a avid member of Gamefaqs. Met a friend on there even.

                    • Samsara09

                      I was a member,for a short while.Had some “fun” with their power mad mods and decided to ditch it once I saw it was corrupted beyond salvation.

                    • Samsara09

                      don’t even mention….I HATE their boards.Too many whiny bastards and trolls.

                    • Samsara09

                      don’t even mention that site.Most of it’s members are downright pathetic.

                      When tales of R’s localization was annoucement,there was a guy there that said the 2D DS version had better graphics.

                      and many others who said the DS versions was WAY superior…

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      Notice the “SHIT” in the name. I absolutely despise the site.

                    • Samsara09

                      man,I did.Just saying why I dislike it too.
                      Do you know a worse story than the one I told you?

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      I try not to think about it. I just know they are whiny brats and don’t need to be trusted.

                    • Samsara09

                      yeah,got tricked with their rumors once or twice.

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      Which is partially why I don’t get hype for rumors and teases.

                    • Samsara09

                      couldn’t be helped…I don’t remember the rumors though.Probably related to vesperia PS3.For some time,I was quite anxious for it.But yeah,when you get older,you start getting better on letting it go.

                      Still,this is an interesting tease!

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      I just stopped believing rumors and teases. This one is interesting but I doubt it will produce much.

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      Well, I’m not getting my hopes up that it will be gaming related. I’ll just say it would be nice if it was though, lol.

      • Sevyne

        Oh for sure. It would be nice.

    • azureknight

      Now that I think about it some more, maybe it’s an anime film adaptation of The Answer?

    • Samsara09

      I am not a kid.If this isn’t for persona 3 golden,i am not going to cry or whine in the web.

      besides,Atlus is quite an honest company.They said this was a “super important” annoucement.

      They may troll,like they did with the persona 5 announcement,but it doesn’t compare to what companies like SE do.Still,Atlus was sure funny that day.

    • 罪罰

      Japan has ice skating plays?

      • Sevyne

        This is why the announcement is so significant! It’ll be the grand debut of plays on ice in Japan!

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          lol Stop with the lies. xD

          • Sevyne

            haha! They all know I’m just messin around.

            • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

              Don’t listen to Ondore’s lies!

    • MrFinalgamer

      Oh I know that, it’s always nice to dream! But if this is related to P4 in any way, whether it be a sequel, or something…ATLUS will be short on staff…

      • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

        It’s a show. That can be done by whoever.

  • Samsara09

    Well,everyone,hype train is calling!What if they are gonna announce persona 3 GOLDEN,or,as buddy pointed down there,BLUE!?
    wouldn’t that be gold?There is a chance they won’t,but dreaming doesn’t hurt!Man,Atlus saved my week.Thought it was gonna be boring.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      1) It isn’t happening. 2) It would not be called Golden. Sheesh people. Do you not realize the color schemes of the games?

      • Samsara09

        ah yes!Persona 3:Blue

        OH!I was wondering why golden.yes,persona 4 was yellow.Man,I really am rather dim-witted sometimes.Still,thanks.

        Also,”not happening”?says who?You?You an oracle?Let’s think POSITIVE.

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          That name is pretty boring. They’d use a cooler color name than Blue.

          • Samsara09

            indeed!

            • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

              Aquamarine

              • Samsara09

                Sapphire?

                • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                  Cobalt?

                  • Samsara09

                    I don’t know anything more blue.Golden is a finer way to say yellow…so it won’t be blue.
                    Either sapphire,Aquamarine or Cobalt.

                    Aquamarine is too long.probably sapphire.Cobalt seems so casual.That is why i doubt Cobalt.

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      Navy. Sky/Baby/Pale (all pretty much the same imo).

                    • Samsara09

                      well,golden is yellow.they just used a more beautiful way to refer to it.
                      For instance,if persona 3 was gray,they would call it silver.

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      Royal, Periwinkle, Azure, or as Tetsu said Midnight. Which would they use though?

                    • Samsara09

                      Maybe Azure or sapphire.This is fun!Hope you are enjoying this little guess game.

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      I like Azure, Cobalt, Navy, Sapphire, and I guess Midnight.

                    • Samsara09

                      maybe persona 3:Midnight?
                      wait…the dark hour began at midnight,didn’t it?That would be meaningful

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      Would make sense considering the games story.

                    • Samsara09

                      indeed.Well,let’s see what will it be.

                      If it is not for a remake that corrects both FES and Portable’s mistakes while merging the strongest points of each,guess that means it wasn’t the time for it.

                      Well,mine are empty words,for I am not an oracle.

                      Well,I promise you it is.

                      Even if I am wrong,I still had fun making that guess game and this promise.

                      Considering what some of these Japanese titles are actually translated to and the subtitles for them are, it’s not long at all actually, lol.

                      oh well!
                      Maybe midnight Azure?

      I see a lot of talk of colors in the responding comments below, but I always thought “Golden” was in reference to Golden Week, like how FES was for Festival. Ya know, weird titling and such. Maybe I’m wrong on that though.

      • 罪罰

        You are correct.

        • Sevyne

          Good. So I’m not just crazy!

        FES was for Festival yes. As for Golden Week I wouldn’t know but maybe. But it is also a tie to the game’s color.

        Funny you should bring that up now since this week is Golden Week :p

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          Golden Week is weird. I would consider next week Golden Week though not this one but it is hard to say because of how it falls this year. Tuesday and then Saturday Sunday and Monday. I guess that is this week rather than next huh… well either way it is odd. It isn’t even a week thing which is weirder.

    • MrFinalgamer

      How about something more…to the point? Like Persona 3 FES: Portable, or P3FESP for short XD

      • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

        That name would be stupid as shit.

  • Kobracon

    Ooooh 4 days before my birthday too. Awesome

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      :O We share a birthday Kobra.

      • Kobracon

        No kidding? 6th May? Small world…

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          Si. The day after Cinco de Mayo.

          • Kobracon

            *wiki’s Cinco de Mayo*

            ….oh ok. Cool ^_^

            • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

              lol Cinco de Mayo is literally 5th of May. A Spanish holiday celebrated in honor of those who died fighting the French..

  • Karl Patrick Jamero

    it was said that P3 will have three movies… considering the answer was kind of short, in terms of events… I guess, the answer four-part OVA?

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      It will be a four part movie series more than likely. Don’t know what ova you would be talking about.

      • Karl Patrick Jamero

        I just based it off of Namco Bandai’s Tales of Symphonia wherein they had an 11-part OVA to convey the whole Symphonia story… I mean the movies have three, and since I think P3: The Answer is not that long… event-wise… I think a four part, one episode long OVA would be the project

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          The main story is four movies. The Answer could be an one episode OVA.

          • Karl Patrick Jamero

            wait really? P3 would have 4 movies?

            • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

              Supposed to be, yes.

  • artemisthemp

    Persona 3 Golden :P

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Nope. And as I said before even if it was another P3 remake it wouldn’t be called Golden.

  • DAT Bird From DAT Cage

    It’s probably a poker machine with Persona themes

  • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar
