yeah... where is she gonna awaken? I forget the timeline, but Casino opens up on October 29.
Going off her being involved with Akechi in at least the one screen shot, she could (possibly) be an off-screen awakening?

Alternatively, she could be someone who 'opposes' what the thieves are doing for quite some time, until event XYZ happens and she joins up?


Also on the Haru/Morgana all out attack....does anyone else think that's possibly indicating we get to 'play' as the two of them running around in the dungeon at the same time as the main party?

I guess I’m in again (hopefully there will be a new Trophy list)
That's my main question. I was planning on a second run soon to mop up trophies, trying to decide if I should bother and wait and see with the Royal edd but if it is two lists it would be better to have finished the vanilla game completely first no? XD

Not sure how I feel about.
Wakaba potentially being alive. I feel that really would take away from Futaba and Sojiro’s arcs. But at the same time I’m a sucker for happy endings.

I guess it could be the equivalent of.
FES and Portable letting you save Chidori and Shinjiro.

Something to do with granting everyone's dreams
Wakaba alive, Morgana a human, Akechi a good guy maybe?


The first thing Kasumi (I think?) says in the opening stopped time animated scene is that she "stole (your/a) dream(s)".

I don’t mean to port beg (I own all three consoles), but I’m curious - are these games PS exclusive because Sony helps with the funding? Or does the publisher just feel the cost/benefit for a Switch or Xbox port isn’t worth it?

Edit: just saw staff post, hope I didn’t run foul accidentally here.

How would she come back though? Are they just going to pretend that Akechi didn't reaaaaaaaally kill her or something? I could see that as their ticket to redeeming him. Weird they'd leave a big spoiler out in the open like that tho.
Did they ever confirm that it was Akechi that killed her? Timeline-wise that'd be a little...weird, considering she had a mental shutdown at a point where Futaba was still a child and Akechi's like 2-3 years older than her, tops.

EDIT: NVM re-read a wiki page.

So excited for this. Let's hope the new dungeon(if there is one) is cool and stylish and not as crappy as the endgame area.

Really curious to see what Royal's solution to that entire situation is. Like I feel they're going for the

Akechi Redemption Arc

Which has me a bit miffed, but was always expected

I should finish P5 but I'm like 80 hours in and barely past the halfway point and haven't touched it in 2 years. I think I'll just watch vids of this one.

Wow, didn't think of this actually

It wouldn't even be out of place, I could imagine this hapening

Not DLC is lame. Not gonna go through another 100 hr playthrough just to see the new stuff... Oh well. New character looks cool I guess

Hmm, maybe I'll just sell my OG Steelbook version and wait to play it once this one launches next year. If it beats the Destiny 3 release, I should finish it...

Oh, that's a good theory. Would explain all the weird happy endings going against all of the character arcs in the trailer. Maybe Kasumi is gonna turn on the team eventually?

Uhh... Feel conflicted about this. If this is DLC and I can sorta see myself buying it (provided if I can continue from one of the save file). But going through the entire game again? Ahhhhh

That makes sense and it'd be awesome.

I'm really glad I only sunk around 30ish hours into the OG version, and never finished it. The additions plus 3rd act will be so good going in with no fatigue.

Loved P5 but it's definitely long in the tooth. All these upgrades look great but sitting through the repetitive elements of the main story again feels extremely daunting (i.e. recycled dialog, Mementos, some of the lengthier dungeons, etc.). All I see here is that a game that was too long before is about to get even longer. A whole third semester???

Hopefully they add some QOL stuff or streamline some of the bullshit. Some of it seems doable - cut down on repeated dialog and Morgana's rules, make it so Mementos progresses as the story progresses even if you aren't grinding through it, maybe streamline the 5th and 7th Palaces - I honestly forget if the 6th was too long or what, I don't remember. The 5th is extremely long and feels almost entirely unnecessary.

None of those games come close to Persona 5's length, especially if you just want to experience the main story.
The Witcher 3 doesn't come close to Persona's length? Get the fuck outta here.

ah yes, games with 20 hour main stories, false equivalences are great. the criticism is that a game with length issues has just been made longer. you knew exactly what I meant.
Monster Hunter World isn't about "main story," it's an endless game with an endless loop that I've put 400-plus hours into. AND IT'S NOT PORTABLE. So know, I don't know what the fuck you mean about "length issues" with 150 hour, not portable games being "unplayable."

Was going to finally play P5 this past January but guess I'm glad I held off a bit longer.

I'm sure lots of people will enjoy this, but I'm out. Playing through this massive game again in its even more massive form... I can't.

I would love more Persona 5, but I am not spending 100+ hours on content I have already seen just to get 10 (and I am probably being generous) of new stuff...

people keep saying "ugh I have to go through 100 hours again".

1. I am pretty sure that they will sprinkle the new shit throughout the game rather than end load it.
2. If it was that much of a slog then why are you even here?

Its like people are shocked that this turned out to be the Expansion of P5...yknow like the last two games also got.

her intro was her saying she hated the phantom thieves after all...

I'm starting to think that new girl might actually be feMc and joker might be his own character if you choose her hmmm. Guess we'll find out in 2 weeks. I know people are pissed that the game is getting longer understandably, but persona is the one series I'm cool with playing for 100+ hours so I'm excited. Hopefully the royal is available as dlc for the west next year.

Not going to play though the whole game for the extra content. Only did so for P4G and P3P since they are portable and i can easily play those games any where.

Still hoping they will add a mode to skip to the 3rd sem or something , i will consider buying this then haha.
