OH
Persona 5 music only
< Persona series music
< Persona and SMT series music
< MegaTen umbrella music
< Atlus music in general, featuring Yoko Shimomura's work from Radiant Historia


At least throw in a SMT medley or some subway/underground district themes for Mementos.

That picture also seems to betray what appears to be Joker's idle stance:



Unless it's some weird mid-frame animation.
I'm hoping they changed his idle animation to be his stealth stance, but I doubt it.

Not really related, but what do people want Joker’s alt colors to be? My two ideas were colors corresponding to the different Phantom Thieves, or palettes that reference other Persona protagonists. The possibility of the “Jane” datamine does throw a wrench in that though. It’ll be interesting to see!
Generally assume it'll be the other Phantom Thieves, but I'd enjoy a couple related to previous Jokers in Persona, like P2's. If the Jane thing pans out, fingers crossed for a Maya color. Also really hope that the music he brings isn't just P5, but across all SMT. The series has so many good tunes that restricting it to one game, or even just modern 3-5 Persona would be a disservice.

edit:

Funny thing is that some of this stuff would easily fly under the radar for those who never played the games if it wasn't for people shouting "OMG THERE ARE SPOILERS!"
Actually happened with Mother 3 back in the day. "Oh no, it's a big spoiler!" "What, that's not just referencing the Mother 2 Pokey?" Sometimes drawing attention to the spoiler is the worst thing you could do, since otherwise people would pay it no mind =P

The teaser was billed as "Super Smash Bros. X Persona 5" much like "Super Smash Bros. X Final Fantasy VII" so I don't have high hopes for non-P5 content.
Yeah, it's the most likely scenario even if it's the most disappointing one. However, I highly doubt Atlus is as protective of its music as Square is and the press release posted by Nintendo alongside Joker's reveal specifically called out the SMT series as a whole, so fingers crossed I guess.

edit: Speaking of which, if Jack Frost is part of Joker's moveset I really hope there's a pallete that makes Jack look Virtual Boy inspired.

Yeah, I'm not a huge fan of the stance either. I was hoping for something more like this:



Angling the knife like he does in Smash just seems... awkward and impractical.
Or that, yeah. It's not bad, but it's odd Sakurai would make up a stance when Joker already has a couple, plus looking at Mega Man and the Belmonts...

I'm assuming it's to make him more different than he would be, or perhaps he uses the knife backhand in the anime. It could also be related to one of the new games, or "Jane".

EDIT: I mean reverse grip.

Bayo is listed as Bayonetta 2 on the website, so there’s hope.
I'm not talking about website listings.

Here are the times they have used the crossover format in the trailers:

Ryu: Super Smash Bros. X Street Fighter
Cloud: Super Smash Bros. X Final Fantasy VII
Simon: Super Smash Bros. X Castlevania
Joker: Super Smash Bros. X Persona 5

Bayonetta didn't even get one in her trailer.

I like how they didn't specify Street Fighter II but excluded everything else anyway.

I'm hoping for school clothes and/or casual clothes. I played most of Persona 5 wearing those outfits instead of the phantom thief outfit. Joker looks cool in glasses!

At this point, I see the 3.0 update just dropping with little fanfare. One where you'll just have to try out the new stuff yourself instead of having it all shown to you. They really blew it by having absolutely nothing meaningful to say about the 3.0 update or Joker since the last big update.

Do people still complain about online?

I can’t even remember the last time I got in a match that wasn’t my preferred rules, or at least either battlefield or FD.
Last time I tried to play online I got into a team match 3 times in a row, followed by a battlefield duel followed by a hazardless free for all


so yes

You guys buckle way too easily. They teased more info in the February Direct and said “before the end of April.” There’s also the Persona concert that we might have to wait to see Jane first revealed.

Nintendo knows people go nuts for Smash info, they aren’t gonna undersell it. Sakurai spent 20 minutes talking about menus and languages but isn’t going to talk about Persona content or Stage Builder?

I got a Little Mac on Pac-Land with items in Elite Smash.
I get my fair share of item matches and non-BF/FD still.
I guess I’m just lucky. I never get matches with bad rule sets.

I haven’t even had a 2 stock match in awhile

That leak’s interesting. Hope that it’s right about franchise elements being included in stage builder. Each major franchise as its own palette a la Mario Maker?

They really do need to have a way to share stages online though, it would be a weird downgrade from Wii U. And I’m also hoping for a Mii costume set that includes some of my favorites from Smash 4 like Geno and Protoman.

He’ll have at least one color based on Crow if nothing else. I’m confidant of that. I would love full alts just because there are some great choices.
