    So P5R came out in Japan and there's already some impressions floating around from importers. From the sounds of it the new content is cool, but the base game remains largely unchanged, so you basically have to beat the whole game again just to get to the new content. Like the only mentions i've seen of changed stuff in this base game is some gross stuff they added to the first palace and a some kind of cool change to boss of the last palace.

    I was ready to defend the re-release if the changes were substantial enough but it honestly sounds like it would have been smarter to just release the new semester as a dlc. Or hell even as a cheaper standalone game if the original game didn't have the dlc hooks implemented.

    They added a challenge mode, rebalanced a bunch of skills (you can use technicals to knock down under certain circumstances, pulinpa is not OP anymore etc.), added Baton pass to everyone by default, added some new mini games that enhance it and add bonding points, you can go out at night after palaces, they reduced load times, added more dialogue all over the place, added new character portraits, added new personas, added some new cut scenes (not just at the end), changed up all the boss fights.

    It's a TON of new stuff all over the place, way more than golden added to P4.

    That said, it's still mostly the same story of course.

    I'm hearing they added some things with Shiho that some players may find disturbing.
    Namely that you run into Kamoshida's cognition version of her in the first palace—in which she is wearing a bunny outfit and behaves as you would expect when conceptualized by her sexual abuser—and that she's part of the boss fight

    what

    Mind you I've only seen a screenshot of the character in question and everything else is based on people who've imported the Royal version
    But to the best of my understanding, you run into Cognition Shiho very similarly to how you run into Cognition Anne, where Shiho's dressed in a bunny outfit and behaving very coquettishly toward her rapist

    She has also been incorporated into the actual boss fight as an additional target who aids Kamoshida

    Unless there's something I'm forgetting from the original game (and there could be, it's been a couple of years) this is more than you see of the actual Shiho who tries to kill herself

    Just wanted to put this out here because I figured some folks might be upset if they got blindsided with that particular change

    spoilers I saw, but I'm not sure are actually real, so YMMV. includes original game spoilers
    supposedly it plays out exactly the same, he dies on the ship.

    then after beating shido the game changes so that all of the phantom thieves get their ideal world from Yaldabaoth, which for joker means they bring akechi back to life, I guess.

    The Akechi who joins your party in the new content is a fake created by the protagonist's regret for how things went down.

    Is there any chance this (now 10 day) countdown is going to announce a Switch version, too, or is that just a desperate pipe dream by overly hopeful people?

    I assume it’s just a western release date.

    Yeah I think you’re right. I wouldn’t be surprised if we get days for P5R and P5S, though, I guess.

    So I started playing P5! It's my first Fursona first Persona! (Well technically, I watched a let's play of P4G and 2 P5 playthroughs up through the third palace, but no further, I've just never actually played them)

    I wanted to play this for a long time, despite not really being a JRPG guy ever. I actually almost bought a PS4 last year for my birthday, for P5 and Spider-Man (got a Switch instead, so yes hi I'm the bitter one that thought P5S would be a P5 port). But now, it's on PS Now, so I can play it on my PC with an Xbone controller and some somewhat shady third-party software to make it think that the back button is the touchpad button.
    Random, scattered thoughts, from just before the end of the fourth palace:
    Current Confidant Tier List (probably bad):
    • S: Ohya (tentative for now, if she starts being a creeper she's dropping)
    • A+: Ryuji (Was S-tier up until now but he's been a real perv lately, come on dude), Takemi (would be S-tier but the whole "selling experimental drugs to kids because ¯\_(ツ)_/¯" is a little off-putting personally)
    • A: Sojiro, Kawakami (god I hope it doesn't get like super creepy, I know that it is pretty creepy), Ann (she's cool, currently who I'm planning on actually dating), No Good Tora (good, actually)
    • B: Yusuke (If it weren't for the whole "nude model for me or I'm calling the police" thing he would be at least A), Fortune Teller (making me drop 100k sucks ass but at least her path seems cool)
    • C: Igor, Mishima (nice but boring), Hifumi (still too early to seriously place but so far not impressed), Makoto (total cop, also I get tired of her always being the smartest one in the room)
    • D: Morgana (only out of F tier because I'm kinda interested in his whole mystery), Wardens (if there was any sort of assistance on how to actually get these fusions without spending 10s of thousands or looking it up online this would be a lot better but I still don't give a shit about them as characters)
    • F: Sae
    • Akechi: Akechi
    • Unranked because locking him behind level 4 guts is bullshit and I still haven't gotten there: Iwai

    Other stuff
    • So far I really dig this game. The style, the music, the level design, all rad as hell. I'm playing on normal, and thought about bumping it up to hard until I finally started getting my ass beat in Kaneshiro's palace lol. It's not too hard, though sometimes the Mementos bosses wreck me out of nowhere.
    • Current main party is Ryuji, Ann, and Makoto, with swapping out Ann for Morgana and Ryuji for Yusuke as SP/resists dictate. I'm so glad that the backup members still get XP so I can actually use them.
    • 3 deaths so far, once to Madarame, once to a random enemy in Kaneshiro's palace that had Mamudo, once to the first miniboss in Futaba's palace while I was trying to conserve SP. I dunno if I'll bump it up to hard at all anymore.
    • Persona question: What's the point of all the physical attacker personas? Like 99% of the time I'd much rather be using elemental attacks for weaknesses, it just seems so redundant to have so many of them when I have Ryuji and Yusuke, and many of them seem bad. Like, I have Kin-Ki and Flauros but I never end up using them.
    • Speaking of Personas, so far my favorite is probably High Pixie, she carried me through two palaces lol

    It's late, I can probably think of more stuff later but so far this game is pretty sick (PS please delete the gay rapists from the game and delete the person who wrote them)

    I can't wait for the official Persona announcement tomorrow where we'll find out that Persona 5 Royal will be coming to the US around October 2020 and will never be coming on the Switch. Also, no news on Persona 5 Musou along with nothing on Shin Megami Tensei 5 or anything else.

    They would have announced it when they revealed P5R, or prior to the game actually being out in Japan

    I like ATLUS and all but they need to chill on this 2 week lead in to announce a date for a game that was already announced and is already out in Japan.

    Do they think their target audience isn't already aware of all this stuff?

    Especially when the target audience is waiting for a bunch of other shit that they keep not commenting on.

    What are they waiting on?

    The musou game? Cause they showed off a new trailer of that not too long ago.

    I agree a countdown was maybe a little much but they were about as clear as they could be about it just being for the P5R release date while still keeping the whole ~mystique~

    Folks just have unrealistic expectations for literally every Persona related announcement or news when Atlus is being pretty clear about what is actually happening

    BlankZoe on
    CYpGAPn.png
  • DrezDrez Registered User regular
    People are hopeful that the things they want will be addressed. ATLUS is fully aware of these desires and fans are equally fully aware that ATLUS is fully aware so they keep assuming that ATLUS isn't going to tease nothing but a release date 14 days in advance.

    I'm sorry but I find that irritating. I keep trying to think "well, maybe ATLUS is doing something more than just being irritating again" but nope.

    As to what people are waiting for, obviously a Switch version of Steambot Chronicles.

    You know all of the outfits music and Persona dlc from Persona 5?

    Royal doesn't include it. And they're selling it again. And you if you bought it for P5, you don't get to transfer it.

    So, guess I'm holding out for the P5R Ultimate edition bundle (and a sale), because FUCK all that.
