    I plan on booking 2 days off to blast through it whenever a release date is confirmed. Difficult to nail when it'll arrive if I have to import though.

    Funnily enough I was just coming back to post about taking time off work - I wouldn't usually book time off for a game but I genuinely think this is the only game I would consider taking a whole week off to play, and not just turning off my phone but destroying it to ensure no one could contact me and interrupt :D

    And yeah in terms of importing, will be the same as Catherine and Persona 4 Golden where if there is a delay between here and America, I'll be importing for sure.

    From the Persona 5 development team.

    Good evening to you all. Persona Team’s Hashino here.

    Today, we presented a video for the long-awaited game; so how did you like it?

    As I write this now, I’ve yet to find out how you guys reacted to it, so I’m honestly feeling a little nervous thinking about comments like “the next Persona is about a phantom thief lol” or “is that Lupin!?” and such, but I’m hoping there are some warm comments out there. Even if there was a just little part you liked from it, it would make me really happy.

    For this game, we’re going with a challenge that fuses together a juvenile school setting that is as large as life, together with a picaresque romance. In the previous game, we wrote a story that involved having a justice group chase down a bad guy that could easily be feared by just about anyone.

    This time, it’s about a group of high school students that are being “chased” by unexpected occurrences due to the justice they believe in. We’re writing [the story] to convey a thrilling everyday life in the shoes of these characters, that are as large as life, in this juvenile school setting.

    We, the team, are working together as we advance through development so you can enjoy something with evolved graphics and sound, along with party members that are just a tad bit more ill-behaved than what you’ve been used to up until now.

    We all have so many feelings that are going into this title. While this is a product by Atlus that is known for its individualistic side, some say that a strong personality can break away from common rules and models… so it can be seen as a nuisance as well.

    However, the way we see a person’s character, it can spread to others for good or for bad, and it can even change the way another would think or behave… and that’s the potential power we see in it.

    We may feel some sort of suffocation in this world today, but as long as the world is comprised of relationships among humans, it is a person’s character, or a group’s character, that will provide the ‘power’ to destroy that ‘feeling of entrapment’.

    I’m hoping that this title will shape up into something that can embody such feelings, and something that will remain in your hearts.

    In order to meet all of your expectations, even just a little, the development team staff are working hard, so I’d like to say thank you for your continued support! (I will take a peek at comments from you all on Twitter, blogs, and such!)

    Thoughts on what Hashino said: romance?! badly behaved characters?

    That's some cool insight. No date though. :( And he mentions working hard so... It'll probably be end of year.

    This reminds me of the second game too. Michel was in a gang, and the characters were overall more adult and dangerous in their decisions.

    I'd imagine with the stealthy sections of the trailer, the party members do some not so legal things in the name of 'justice'.

    I must finish P4G before this comes out. After that, I can get excited...

    So we are saying that the ShopTo release date is a holding date?

    I'd imagine so Ace. If they're still working, that's only next month. That'd be a Japanese date at the very, very best.

    The fanboy in me wants to be wrong though. I just doubt they'll have recorded/translated English lines alongside Japanese.

    Hope Yuri Lowenthal returns in some form.

    Maybe one day I'll bother to get a Vita, I really want P4G :(

    But watching that stream earlier, it really felt like a send-off for Persona 4, despite the dancing game that's still to come out. It really felt like a goodbye? Which was a bit strange.

    But yeah, that part at the end of the trailer pictured in that GIF above, my guess is that it'll be a cutscene at the start of the game where you first get your Persona? Like with 3 and 4.

    It won't come out until after June in Japan because they also announced today they will bundle a CD with Persona 4 dancing all night which will show exclusive gameplay footage etc of Persona 5

    I'm curious as to who they are rebelling against and who is entrapping them. They almost seem to be thieves or stealing something...perhaps the oppressor in the first dungeon is rich and they are stealing his wealth to teach him a lesson?

    Also from the screen capture of the menu there is not a 'social links' option but there is a 'cooperation' option. Have they got rid of social links?

    So many questions :D

    There's no question about it, I'll be importing, then there's no need to worry about what's going on with European distribution.

    My PS3 is a US import anyway, so even if they are crazy enough to do a region lock again it wouldn't be a hindrance.

    Protag's persona? The face matches the gif above when it morphs.

    So the common idea so far is that you become the persona via the mask you wear.... intriguing!

    That is veeeeery interesting, but would that mean the Wild Card would be done away with? Or the protagonist can still become any persona?

    In the trailer we see what looks like the protagonist appearing rather hunched over, bespectacled and timid in day to life, versus an alter ego who stands upright and doesn't wear spectacles who is more confident looking.

    Maybe the masks fulfil the role of an enabler, as the guns did in Persona 3, Persona 4 explored the subject of buried desires and hidden persona's within people. Perhaps they shed the inhibiting shackles of their own making, Shackles did feature as part of the teaser imagery.

    I don't think you could have a Persona game without the Wildcard, we can already see that Igor is in the game so there must be a Velvet Room or some equivalent.

    Maybe he has to lug a sack full of masks around with him. Everywhere he goes.

    Masks. Like shadow masks. Persona is suppressed shadow/ego, bared for all.... They're going balls deep.

    Ror that would be hilarious. :D
