Looks like we can forget about Mayumi Fujita being at PSL2019 unless they are holding her back for a last minute surprise. They announced the additional performers and it's just the dancers and DJ Waka.

Yeah it's not a huge surprise. Even though we've had physical versions of all the recent Atlus 3DS games they don't seem to be putting many copies out so the odds of them doing a special edition would be pretty low.

Up to floor 3 of the Inaba Exhibit in Persona Q.

Yukari made Aigis delete all her puns. Nooooo!

She really is the worst. :(

Those puns were implanted into her by an evil nihilist with a lame sense of humour and is directly responsible for creating some of the worst characters in the series.
Good riddance to bad rubbish.

Planning to finally start P5 after I get done with Persona Q.

Excited to say the least. Q has really reinvigorated my hunger for SMT.

Going to do a neutral run of SMT IV (only ever finished chaos route) and buy Apocalypse while I'm at it.

Is it ever explained why Pharos hands you the contract for the Velvet Room? Like how did he even get it. I've run thru p3 so many times I sort of just accepted it.

From a quick scan of Vic Mignogna's TV Tropes page, Todd Haberkorn is apparently the closest match in terms of voice range.

Never mind, bad choice on my part due to lack of info.

Did I miss something? I'm not plugged in on voice actor news.
Haberkorn outed himself as Pridemore's rapist shortly after Pridemore wrote her Vic story, even though she actually declined to name him for fear of it costing her professionally. He did so in a bizarre self-defense post that went up on Facebook twice claiming it was consentual sex, and attached screenshots of private messages with he had with Pridemore afterward as "proof". He has since deleted the post and seemed to try to walk it back, but what's out there is out there...

It's discussed starting here.

Hey guys, how are you doing?

I'm tempted to buy Persona 3 Dancing in Moonlight for my Vita, so I was wondering if you guys think it's worth for the story, fanservice and character interactions. Not really a fan of dancing games but I love the P3 cast. But if it's just a dancing game with a P3 "skin" and music, I might pass.

The main bulk of the game is the dancing/music part. While the social scenes are great, you have to play a fair bit of the dancing game to unlock them. If you're not a fan of dancing games it might be better to check out the social scenes on YouTube.

Despite completing Persona 5 a month ago, I couldn't help myself and jumped straight into NG+. I'm really glad I did, because tearing up Kamoshida's Palace with endgame Personas is hilarious. I'm also doing it in English this time when I did it in Japanese before. Dub cast is very solid all around, although I must admit it's hard to replace Ikue Ohtani as Morgana in my heart. I'll probably feel the same with Shuichi Ikeda as Shido.

Nice thing about NG+ is I can play it at a casual pace too while working on other games, no need to binge a 100 hour JRPG in a month.

I feel like reception to Full Body is sadly luke warm at this board, so I guess I'll throw out a feeler here to see if anyone has OT suggestions or is interested in helping.
I'm interested in the game but I'm trying keep myself spoiler free as I've never played the original so unfortunately I don't have much to add to conversations.

You really should go play the original first. FB is making a ton of changes, and it's unclear if they're for the better or worse, but the original is an incredible game on every level.

I see. I didn't realise it was making a ton of changes. As there's no EU release date for FB yet, I'll see if I can pick up a copy of the original somewhere on PS3.

It's natural that reception towards Full Body would be muted when the game has had no marketing or release date outside of Asia and when it's likely going to be released a long time from now. There's no reason to anticipate a title that 99% of the people in the community won't be importing.

Indeed.
I love the original and can't wait for FB, but we don't even have a release date and I'm on media blackout anyway. I've already seen everything that is in the base game, no point spoiling the new stuff.

Man...that fourth dungeon boss in Q has an ungodly amount of HP but I think I finally managed to..

There's barely even been Japanese marketing for Full Body recently.
Uh, there's been lots of it. I already posted about the glory of sheep-kun.

The revamped multiplayer is reason alone to want to day 1 it. And like you said, we could be waiting forever for the US version.

I think it's a fair bit more than that. There's been an import scene here for games that don't even have multiplayer like Judge Eyes and P5.
Yeah, but this is the remake Full Body, and you're talking about multiplayer. The only person I've even heard talking about importing the game here has been you. There'd be more of a push for an import thread if it was like those who wanted to import Persona 5.

We had a few who also day 1'd the PS3 version, if memory serves. Honestly I doubt I would have made it as far as I did in the competitive scene if not for importing the original. (I got second place in my first tournament, but after it blew up, I never got past top 8.)

I won't deny I got pretty lost during my raw playthrough of Catherine(I had NO CLUE what was going on during the Boss reveal, making my reaction a lot like Erika and Vincent's), but my Japanese has gotten a lot better, so I'm hoping I'll manage better this time.

I managed to get Katherine's Good ending, which was nice.

Started Persona Q last night, battle theme is alright but the rest of the music has been pretty lame so far for a Persona game... Went with P3 story because I prefer the characters, not sure how it works though, do I not get access to anyone from P4?

As always with this series the new characters in the spinoffs are horrible

I can't tell whether the voice actors are the same as the main game, Yukari, Mitsuru and Akihiko all sound very similar, but something's off with Junpei and Fuuka, Ken, Elizabeth sound like completely different people

You'll get access to the P4 characters a few hours into the game. I'm not sure what the exact differences between the routes are outside of the opposite Protagonist having their lines voiced.

Fuuka and Ken have different VAs from P3 (Wendee Lee and Cindy Robinson do Fuuka and Ken for all of the spin-offs). Junpei and Elizabeth have their regular VAs. I think Theo and Margaret are the only other VA changes.

I went and made a thread about it if you wanna discuss more outside this place.

I’ll say I certainly didn’t see that coming.(insert P5 meme here)

Think I should get P5 today for my PS4 or wait for a possible Switch announcement(I can feel it in my bones, especially with Joker's announcement)? I'd rather play the game on the go as opposed to on a home console.
