  • Jaeger Knighty

    Yu is bound to be like: “Not this again.”

    • Richard N

      Hell I’m feeling that way. Will they ever get to just be normal kids again? Probably not…

      • Not as long as Atlus keep the Persona 3 and Persona 4 spin-off’s coming.

        • Kaetsu

          I actually hope they do. I still want more numbered games like 5,6,7,e.t.c but I honestly still want Atlus to milk the Persona 4/3 games. I love the P4/3 cast to death. I can’t stand to see them go!

          • Well then, your the complete opposite to me. Not the loving P3/4 cast thing, them and their goofy-ness is the reason I love Persona in the first place. I don’t mind all the spin-offs, really, I just want Atlus to focus on Persona 5.

          • Arcana Wiz

            Dancing game – Sega, the project diva makers

            Persona q – EO team, this team dont usually work with persona games…

            Persona Arena – Arcsys(another company), makers of Blazblue and Guilty gear

            All these games cant delay P5 cause it’s different people from the P5 devs….

          • Yeah, but different team or not, they still get input from the Director and several other important Persona Staff. I get your point, though. The spin-off’s shouldn’t delay Persona 5 in any way.

        • Julio D. Zulkarnain

          If Adachi’s in it then gimme. Speaking of which, where is he? I didn’t see him in the opening. Is he…*gulp*…DLC?

          • JustThisOne

            Can’t reveal all the cards before you play, yo! :3

          • greeeed

            Adachi in prison

            (game have canon story so unless he run or shadow attack his prison we will not see him)

          • Ben Sylvia

            According to TVTropes (don’t know where whoever added it to it got from, so..) The Adachi that’s playable is a past version of him, present due to shenanigans created by that funky red mist.

            Okay so that’s been removed from his entry on the game’s character page. IDK

    • AuraGuyChris

      Oh, he shouldn’t worry about this. He’s pretty used to the whole thing by now.

      He should be worrying about his dance debut in national TV instead.

    • fyi1191

      To me, his face expression there implies,
      Yu : I got no time for this. > I got a dance off coming up!

  • JustThisOne

    :< I hope he eventually gets a drink. Watching this made me thirsty.

  • Kaetsu

    Friends! They are Rivals!

  • Espoir

    I’m surprised Rise isn’t practicing for her dancing debut.

    • Logeres

      I didn’t see her, so I assume she does.

      Yu would’ve too, but he’s too OCD to consider practicing during both the day and the evening.

      • Bec66

        You seriously didn’t notice her in a bikini with her arms wrapped around general teddie?

        • DragKudo

          That isn’t the real rise though that’s just a shadow.

          • The eyes weren’t yellow though.

          • DragKudo

            Shadows can hide there eyes. Rise in the first game was a fake and she didn’t have yellow eyes. She was just an extension of shadow Labrys.

  • Byron Kerrison II

    Naoto’s about ready to put moar bullets in people’s skulls.

  • Warren

    That Mitsuru and Yukiko! Fire and Ice together again making Steam!

    And Kanjis Bear Back!

  • MrJechgo

    Think you can replace that video with a HD version if you ever find one? The quality… isn’t really optimal ATM.

  • personablaze

    Mitsuru looking fabulous~

    Can’t wait to try out yukari and junpei.

  • Jesse

    Anyone else notice the Catherine calender at ~2:08?

  • Sperium3000

    You know, they should hire a night watcher for the midnight channel, given this is the second time IN THE SAME WEEK someone just up and takes it over.

  • Nice Boat Quatro

    It’s official. Persona took over Siliconera this week

    • Hellooooooo there.

    • Servant BerserCAR

      Confirmed. It is not an emancipation, it’s an invasion.

  • junir

    He’ll always be “Stupei The Lame Defective” to me…

  • Afternoon Intergalactic

    Yu must be getting some massive Deja vu. I’m so hyped for this game.

  • Abysswalker90

    So, Shadow Labrys is still the one pulling the strings? Interesting..

    • Hashim Kutbi

      I don’t think so. any shadow can disguise it self so maybe that’s way there’s another general teddy.

  • Randgriz

    Are these fighting games important to the lore, i dont want to miss out…

    • DyLaN

      Considering P4A is essentially P3/4-2 and this is the sequel of Arena…. Yes.

    • Arcana Wiz

      Yes, they have a long history and are canon sequels for P4 and P3.

  • I appreciate how everyone gets to look cool in the trailer… except for Teddie. He just licks a popsicle and gets blown up by a dozen missiles.

    • DragKudo

      And survives.. If that isn’t cool then i don’t know what is.

  • Rake

    For anyone who wants to know. Sho has a persona named Tsukuyomi.

    • BalmungX

      Really? If it’s true then the main gods are all in now

  • greeeed

    red night… I guess the encore battle will be in dark hour(real world) instead of TV world?

  • Allec Ribeiro

    Still kinda disappointed that they’ve added only four new characters, not counting the shadows—and as cool as those are, with the different movesets and all, they’re don’t feel like new characters to me. Would make sense for an expansion, but this is supposed to be a sequel… oh well, looking forward to the story mode at the very least.

    • Rake

      Considering that this game is heavily based on skill, it’s wise to add a few characters and work more on balancing, updating move-sets, and making each character feel unique in their own way.

      I have no problem with that, in the future P4A could be one of the Top Fighting games out there.

      • Allec Ribeiro

        True that. I care more for the plot and generally being able to play with more characters than balance, which is why I am disappointed, but it will surely be a good sequel to actual fighting game fans, haha.

    • Arcana Wiz

      ……. you know, isnt uncommon Arcsys release new characters later…. and the console version is only in summer, whp say that they wont reveal a new character for the console version and a update in the arcades?

      • Allec Ribeiro

        I really hope they do! :D

  • Hashim Kutbi

    Dark hour in Inaba?
    this is getting really scary :(

  • So now Yu has a Catherine calendar instead of a P3? FUCKYEAH lol

    • ArminJrpg

      LOL he is a Perv XD

  • leingod

    I know I’ve said this countless times but… Vita! :D

  • Sardorim

    Yes, Yukari is a Superhero! Neo Fetherwoman Pink on her quest to restore her one true love – Neo Featherman White aka Makoto!

  • LibraryOfAlexandira .

    Sho’s going to be the atoner character, calling it.

    • AnotherTime

      Yu: What are…what are you after here?
      Sho: Do I really have to spell it out for you, idiot? I’m here to take all of you…and sharpen my blades on your necks!
