    I'll be waiting for more information on Persona 5 but with the way the short trailer went, it seems to be going the dark direction again, which is pretty good.

    On the other hand, I couldn't be more excited for Q. I've been waiting for a Persona game on my 3DS for some time and I couldn't have gotten anything better (aside from maybe a new IP)

    I love the P3 and P4 crossover so if they decide to bring it over it will probably be a day one purchase for me.

    On the topic about Persona becoming "dark" again.

    Maybe it's just me, but after playing Persona 3, the one that was "so much darker than P4", I didn't actually find it to really be that dark. Obviously most of it comes down to perspective but I found P3 had a lot of cheerful parts, mostly the day-to-day school life and comedy/banter brought on by the friendly characters. The Social Links were pretty much all normal, except for Sun which was the only one I could consider as dark. Even the most grim parts of the plot were... fairly tame. This isn't to say make it like Game of Thrones or throw in some rape or abuse scenes to make it seem dark. That's not going to make it a better game unless it's handled properly.

    3 is much more darker in atmosphere imo. Most of Tartarus is a much darker looking place than most of the dungeons in 4. But 3 really isn't that much darker than 4. 1 and 2 are the darkest.

    And here's a translated PQ trailer.

    Yeah I agree on you their, a lot of games just throw in dark and edgyness to make the game appeal to people (rarely does shin megami tensai do this..though all series have their duds). A story isn't good because it's dark, a dark story is good because it's well written.

    Dengeki confirms a high school setting and talks about the theme for persona 5-
    Additionally, Dengeki reports that Persona 5 will be an RPG that sends a strong message of catharsis, after overcoming trials to free yourself from your shackles. The game will take place in the series’ usual juvenile school setting, but will take on a different mood this time around.

    It's kind of funny how Persona Q is a spin-off of a spin-off of a spin-off of a video game adaption of a Japanese novel. And it's based off of Etrian Odyssey, which is funny because Strange Journey was also based off of Etrian Odyssey (it used the same engine even if it looked completely different). I was hoping that we'd get a Strange Journey sequel using Etrian Odyssey 4's engine, but I guess we're getting a Shin Megami Tensei dungeon crawler one way or another.

    My prediction for Persona Q is that it will actually end up being a really solid spin-off. The story won't top Persona 3/4's obviously, but the gameplay could easily be better.

    Peh, you want dark? Play Persona 2. Either one. Both IS and EP are dark as f*ck- and it's part of what makes them such good games!

    Dungeons that aren't randomly generated is already a step in the right direction imo.

    I want to know how dark 5 is. But as people said already it is all perspective. Like I found VLR much dark than P3. I can't bring myself to play 1 or 2 due to the characters being so dull. Played SH and everyone says it is dark but it was not so bad. Well the sister being in her braindead state was freaky.

    Hm speaking of Persona 2 charecters, while I have not gotten too far in it, One thing that kind of a pet peeves is a silent protaganist that has no reason to be silent, silent protangist are sort of suppose to be vague charecters with vague histories so one could put yourself or your own personality in...but when the charecter has a history that's told and even a bit of personality one can guage from his body language and the people around him is the silent protangist thing really neccessy? Again I have not gotten far so if a twist is he got his vocal cords severaly damaged at somepoint and nobody likes to talk about it I would not know.

    I have 2 small wishes for P5.
    First is I hope we'll be able to choose a female lead character like in P3P.
    Second, I hope they'll allow intimate same sex relationships )

    Just finished watching the fight against Nyarlatothep in Persona 2: EP (for the gazillionth time). ....I am so NOT looking forward to that battle.

    Which, in another Persona 2 video I watched today, someone in the comments brought up what I see as a genius idea for a new Persona game: Basically one giant Persona game involving all the characters from the past 4 Personas, in which it all culminates in one big, epic, cross-Persona-teamup final battle against Nyarlatothep. Kinda' like a "this is the penultimate threat to our world, so let's team up and take this guy down once and for all!" moment.

    How did I miss this place I am such a big fan of Persona it's not even funny.
    Also trying to get Devil Survivor for my DS.
    If we're having a conversation about Persona 5 I think we should just start with an all new story instead of continuing with the Persona 3 and 4 storys.
    Not looking for anything right now thanks to Kybosh and Lion Demon their great people .

    Check out my Persona fanfic. Review if you like it if you didn't tell me why with a review.

    Do it! I got it on a whim as the local game crazy was going out of business, and I was very surprised at how fun it was!(worth noting I only played P3/4 beforehand, none of the usual SMT games). It has an awesome story, and a perfect difficulty level.

    I still want to pick the second one up sometime.

    I assume you don't have a 3DS, which has the superior version.

    Admitly I would love to see this cross over if only to clear up how 1&2 and 3&4 stories connect. Honestly at times they don't even feel like their in the same series (persona not shin megami tensai) Not to mention I'd always imagine someone in the p3 group flabbergasted that a bunch of people got personas by running around a room and shouting, consider p3 group were so desperate for recruits they had to take a 10 year old and a dog.

    A badass Dog.
    Also I think persona 1 and 2 are connected with 3 and 4 in the sense that 1 and 2 might take place in a alternate world closely resembles 3 and 4's world.

    It's interesting, because MegaTen games are always like that. There's two games that are almost identical, and then something completely different. For example, Megami Tensei I and II, and then Shin Megami Tensei I and II happened, and then III and IV moved to polygons and third person exploration.

    Then there's Devil Summoner. The original and Soul Hackers, and then the Raidou duo happened on PS2. And Personas 1 and 2 were similar, and 3 and 4 were something different.

    It's why I'm so excited for Devil Survivor 3. 1 and 2 were really similar so I imagine the third game will be as drastic a change as Persona 2 --> Persona 3.
