Atlus has a message for Persona fans...

Hello.

It feels as though I can finally revive this [blog]. [cries]

The past few years, we’ve caused all of you fans to worry greatly. The Atlus group (company) that was always there, was lost, just like that, and for the sake of continuing as a brand, it’s almost as though we had no other choice [but to rely] on our products’ uniqueness that brings joy. It’s how we’ve faced the past few years.

This may be a bit of an exaggeration, but I believe that a product should have characteristics similar to what a person should have—something that can provide a feeling of stimulation or impact to someone, and perhaps even a ‘charm’ that could change one’s own sense of values.

Without simply stopping at what’s just fun, the desire for making those who get the experience to play it, retain something in their hearts… those are the thoughts and feelings that are important to us, as we’ve continued pursuing creativity.

That will not be changing.

We’ll keep working hard to be able to continue making games that will bring you joy, and nothing would make me happier than hearing your warm voices of encouragement.

Glad to see the team still retains passion about their products in spite of all that they have been through. This gives me so much hope for Persona 5. Although obviously, it won't be better than Persona 4 Golden (for reference, this is exactly what I said about Persona 4 after playing FES).

Love you too Atlus, and while I will always carry a bit of Persona 4 Golden with me, I'm still not seeing a P4UUSH localization...

I hope when Persona 5 releases it won't take long to localize in North America.

Looking forward to Persona Q as well.

Was hoping to have some information or something about Person 5

I am highly disappointed

I love Atlus. I hope all those Persona spin off games come to North America. I'll buy everyone. The 3DS game looks quite awesome.

The real question is...P3P or FES? I cannot decide and never played P3 because of it.

#14 Posted by darkspineslayer (20440 posts) -

@xh117: did you play Persona 4 though?

It's then basically a question of whether you value control in battle or having an actual overworld more.

#15 Posted by xh117 (84 posts) -

@darkspineslayer: played P4G, I heard you couldn't control your team individually and the overworld is slow to walk around in FES. P3P lacks in presentation/cutscenes and that impacts the story which is like the main focus of the game so its like you have to sacrifice something significant in each version.

FES. More content, plus it's actually a game instead of a glorified visual novel.

Yeah I think maybe I'll do FES for the first playthrough then maybe play the female MC for P3P if I'm not too burned out by it.

Since you have already played Persona 4, Persona 3 will test your patience, just a heads up. It is tonally different and mechanically much inferior to Persona 4 (which makes sense, since P4 built on and refined P3).

Thanks for the heads up, I can already see not being able to control your team individually to be annoying but hopefully it won't be too difficult on normal. Gonna go download it now.

That;s fine considering it was announced like 3-4 months ago?
