The original Erdrick / Persona 5R leak from December mentioned this stage:

https://personacentral.com/rumor-persona-5-arena-development-p5r-complete-edition-2019-super-smash-ultimate-leak/

  • Joker
  • The stage is Mementos
  • Jack Frost appears on screen with a skill
  • Marketing of P5R (complete version) and P5U (fighting game)
  • P5R is 2019
  • P5U is delayed because Arc is busy with the development of a Granblue fighting game
  • Erdrick
  • Stage is Alefgard
  • Erdrick (Male) and Erdrick (Female), 2 colors each of Anlucia and the Dragon Quest XI Hero
  • Slime appears on screen with a skill
  • Achieved through active collaboration on Square’s side
  • To the benefit of overseas marketing for the DQ series
Edit 1: more info


Edit 2: Home Run Contest may return, strings related to it found (check whole thread).

So the 5ch rumor might be real then?

P5R is a P5 re-release a la Golden for Switch/PS4 and P5 Arena is delayed due to Granblue

Siiiiiiiiiiigh...

Does anyone prefer Mementos over literally any other P5 location? The casino would have been PERFECT!

To be fair, Mementos might be one of most obvious choice for the stage. I meant Casino could be the choice but there is an issue where Casino might have to get a rating for gambling feature in the game.

Mementos is sort of an underground/subway themed dungeon, for those unfamiliar.

On the rumors: Was the Joker/Erdrick thing ever actually, 100% linked to the later rumors with Hayabusa, Doomguy, etc?

Mementos was always going to be his stage. There's nothing here to confirm anything.

Though it does reinforce my stance to not buy Joker.

should've been the casino

I was going to give them, "Well Mementos is the obvious choice."

But no. Y'all are right. Shoulda totally been the casino.

Ah, that is right. Wouldn't have flied in the European release, lol.

That means Steve is one step closer to being confirmed lmfao

I'll take him over another FE character

Edit: looks like I am mixing up rumors, dis-regard this

Should've been the casino palace yeah. Mementos is boring. Hopefully the music is more exciting. Basically every single track from Persona 5 SVP.

Not really. My understanding is that the logic was "this leak says Joker and Erdrick, and this other leak says Joker, Erdrick, Doomguy, Steve, etc. That must mean that they're both true." Which is tenuous, but Smash fans believe almost every leak for some reason.

Good news since Dragon Quest XI S is getting orchestrated music, this means it's very possible Smash will as well.

So theoretically, if Sonic ever got a third stage, any of the casino zones would be automatically blacklisted?

Anyway not that I'm super contrarian (yes I am) but Mementos being Joker's stage doesn't seem like that much of a leap if the Casino Palace is off-limits.

This sounds like all DLC will be collaboration with 3rd parties + Edelgard or Byleth because Fire Emblem duh.

It feels sorta weird to me there'd only be data for the first two characters. Not that it makes this fake, but why not have everyone in if the data is already just serving as a placeholder?

Mementos is... meh. I hope it's the deep levels at least, those were a little bit more interesting.
I think the music selection will make me happy regardless of what they pick tho. Loving the game.

Well, if they're still not in full development, adding the placeholder would only help dataminers.

Never played Persona before, what is this?
Every major dungeon is called a Palace in Persona 5, which are manifestations of our unconscious thoughts. So let's say you view your home as a Castle for some reason and the thought was very powerful, in the Metaverse it will actually become a castle, then when jumping into Metaverse (which is how Persona 5's characters get their costumes and powers), the characters of Persona 5 can reach this location where a different version of you must be defeated to save you from this false reality you created for yourself.

Mementos is a train station palace that isn't one person's palace but the collective consciousness of everyone else who doesn't have their own palace. If that makes sense...

Overall, I'm okay with Mementos, but the Casino Palace would have been more fun & fitting IMO.

I mean, I believe these things will happen, but Mementos was the obvious choice from the get-go so I'm not going to put stock into this.

oh yeah, Persona Q2. I don't see why Nintendo would choose Joker for Smash on Switch to help promote a 3DS spinoff game, but who knows

Sonic Mania has casino levels and that's rated E. I don't think just "casino" is enough to affect the rating.

Edit: Nevermind, I'm wrong. There is no casino level in Mania. Sonic Forces and All-Star Racing have casino levels though, and those are both E10, like Smash.

With the paranoia that Atlus has with the spoilers, I would not be surprised if they chose Mementos precisely because of that.
