    How come even with all the changes Mitsuru is still top tier?

    • Firion Hope

      Because shes so badass

    • Freakmasta

      How come even with all the changes, Aigis is still top tier?

      But seriously, Aigis was already top tier in the 1st one. In this version, they gave her even MORE buffs, which doesn’t make sense!

    • Natat

      Mitsuru actually got her share of nerfs. But she’s still so damn solid and with only her normals she can shut down so many options and characters, she remains among the top tiers. Now, Narukami and Aigis… those make absolutely no sense.

    • Slayven19

      She got nerfed, but she is still very good because of her pokes and taking away that would be stupid. I’d rather they not nerf good characters for the sake of it, just make weaker characters better.

  • Demonspartanx20

    anyone know anything how good Naoto is in this game?

    • Primal Link

      All I know is that Naoto now has to ‘Reload’ after fireing a round

    • Afternoon Intergalactic

      They buffed her gun (faster start-up, more damage) but gave it a cool-down to make it not spammable. She now can use the gun as an ender for combos that don’t finish with double fangs. From as far as I know they also took out the SMP loop, but since her damage and options are better now it doesn’t affect her as much. Pretty sure her autocombo has a high/low mixup now too (5aa low and double fangs overhead) but not positive.

      • Kaetsu

        I’m so glad the gun has been buffed because it was really underpowered before.

  • Abysswalker90

    Huh, so Adachi is a confirmed playable character now.

    • Afternoon Intergalactic

        First video: 00:01

        EDIT: Oh shit. I mistook Junpei for Adachi. They look the same! o_o
        Sorry, forget I said anything.

  • Pdugna

    Persona avatars :D, OT though glad this game got a announcement for the west sooner rather then later, this fall is gunna be bad for me and games >.<.

  • Kaetsu

    Does anyone know if Yosuke got any buffs or nerfs?

    • Afternoon Intergalactic

      There’s a changelog floating around on the web somewhere, but with my rudimentary understanding of Yosuke he’s got new special moves, and his sukukaja lets him use a new super. Pretty sure his autocombo in sukukaja is also better with a really fast cross up(? it’s ambiguous without playing the game).

      Since I don’t play yosuke, I can’t tell if his options/moves are any better or worse from watching. Seems like he’s picked a lot though.

      • Kaetsu

        He’s my main :)

        • Ryan

          Yosuke has a new move called V slasher which allows him to get a knockdown off of every air combo or ground confirm, and the oki he gets off it is pretty solid. His meterless damage remains the same but he has more viable options to increase his damage with meter, since SB crescent slash has been buffed and sukukaja has been improved a lot. Sukukaja changes the properties of his 5a and makes it a ridiculous normal that crosses through them, and while he is in the mode he has access to a new free knife super (you can spend 25 meter for the SB version of that super). Yosuke is very strong in this version, among the high tiers.

    • Triplicity

      Overall buff. I want V Slasher and new Sukukaja already.

  • Magus KilIer

    One of those players is called STD
    That’s awesome

  • Don

    hhmmmm the red colored theme.. are they hinting at a P5A?? hahahaha

    that almost teddy comeback.. good stuff

  • Shadowman

    Did Teddy became more OP?!

  • For a second there when I saw the header image I could’ve sworn it was Mitsuru with a goatee.

  • ThatDamnCanadian

    That was some nice gameplay
