And maybe a Switch port so I can play it on the train, as God intended me to? There's a strong belief amongst the community that there's going to be a 'Crimson' edition to the point where it's an accepted term. Complete game spoilers: Spoiler A lot of the complaints regarding the game's overall pace also make the belief there's a potential new version to come make sense. The points of extreme downtime over the summer, when you're 'dead' and ending on Christmas Eve means that there's plenty of room in the calendar to add or make changes. Hifumi being cut as a playable character also hints at there being more room for party members but also the whole Haru social link could be fixed as she's introduced too late in the game for her to have any meaningful role in the group. As for the Switch... I think it just depends. Persona started on the SNES but made a home on Sony machines because that's where all the JRPGs went. Atlus have published loads of RPG games on Nintendo handhelds so the relationship is there and the Switch is doing gangbusters in Japan so... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 10 hours ago, Majora said: Persona 5 was the first time I tried the series and I lasted about 40 hours before I had had my fill. There was actually a hell of a lot I liked about the game but there's simply no denying that you will spend a LOT of time watching cutscenes. If I sat down with the game for, say, two hours after work, there was no guarantee I would actually get to play it in any meaningful sense and it caused me to slowly drift away. You do kinda need to be prepared for long, long conversations and periods of time where you don't really get to do anything. I think with Persona, you have to have some investment in the story to really enjoy it. The characters and social links are a big part of what makes the series stand out and if you don't enjoy it, you won't have a good time. It's slightly different in that you have to manage your time in game so the dungeon crawling and grinding isn't the only mechanic for progression. It's why I still prefer P4G, because I enjoyed those characters and that setting a lot more. Objectively there might not be too much between the games but when almost half the game is spending time with party members and NPCs, with those conversations you mention, if it doesn't click for you then the grind feels twice as long. 10 hours ago, Jamie John said: P4G is far and away the better game. 5 was good, but at least 30 hours too long. I've got no desire to return to it. P4G, meanwhile, was the first JRPG I'd completed and enjoyed all the way through since FFIX. Pick it up on the Vita, if you have one. I've seen a lot of people say 5 was too long, but I think if it was paced better then people wouldn't feel the length () as much. Complete game spoilers for both P4G and P5: Spoiler For NG+, I clocked similar play times for both games and almost platinumed both (missed a fucking book in P4G) so I think it's a good sign that both games are roughly similar in terms of length. P4G having the rest of the year plus the Marie plot makes a big difference, but already by then you've spent a lot of time as a group and you know the antagonist. P5 tries to get you invested in the whole Shido thing but the Akechi twist seems half baked and honestly he should've joined earlier to make it less obvious/more of a blow to you. P5 is great in many ways, the battles are so fucking slick and movement feels a lot better. The ship dungeon is horrific padding and given how late in the game it is, it probably broke more than it should've. 1 hour ago, Qazimod said: This is just my opinion rather than a thing that’s actually happening but I get the feeling that most Persona stuff is finding a home on Sony machines whilst Nintendo gets the mainline SMT stuff (at the same time the Persona Q sequel seems to be P5-themed and the original PQ is a 3DS exclusive, so again take my speculation with a huge pinch of salt.) Personally I’d love to see a second home console release in the style of P3 FES with remixed events. Or just a release with alternative objectives that don’t overstay their welcome. I read this as "a second home console release of P3 FES" and was about to heavily agree. I still can't believe they're making all these HD models of Persona 3 for the dancing game and they're not using them for a full remake. I think we'll end up seeing mainline Persona games on Switch, partly because it's doing too well in Japan and partly because releasing P5C (and P3 and P4 *cough) gives them more time to work on Persona 6...
