>conveniently doesn't post any screenshots of 4
wow, I DEFINITELY believe this
haha what a fag you are
still probably fake
if this is for an xbox or gamepass showcase it'd show the xbox version of the game.
both of those screenshots of V and Nocturne HD show the switch versions because the screenshot of V has the X and Y buttons in the exact same spot as it would on switch but xbox controllers have the X and Y opposite. the nocturne hd remaster on pc gives colored buttons just like the xbox controller when you plug one in instead of a blacked out/grey looking one
>Shit Megami Tensei
Over for Shin Mehami Tencels
What the fuuuuuuuck
HUGE if real
nobody asked for this
I asked for IV
I asked for them.
I didn't ask for it but I still haven't played Apocalypse so it'd give me a reason to
fuck off, I asked for it
SMT 4 and 5 PC releases? Hell yeah, that's awesome.
getting IV and Apocalypse the fuck off the 3ds as its in the middle of dying is a good thing anon
I'm impressed at the extend Sony has spooked Japanese publishers and developers.
If even the public can smell the rot in Sony now, you bet your ass publishers are practically fainting from the stink.
Tell me one reason why Sega/Atlus should bother with Sony?
>PS5s are simply non existent
>insanely expensive distribution (from physical discs to other bullshit like patch "tax")
>completely incompetent management
>no future proof (will there be a PS6? Will Sony even continue producing hardware?)
>everything is complex (with Steam you just drag and drop your files on the Steam server and everything else is done by Steam with zero costs other than a sales cut)
Sega/Atlus literally gave up on Sony. It's just so much work and costs for no meaningful returns. P4G literally buck broke Atlus. Just imagine, Atlus had just slapped the P4G files onto the Steam server, and the money kept rolling and still keeps going with zero additional effort.
This must have really changed something in Atlus to release a game and the whole distribution chain and complexity is gone and now it's literally just some basement dweller job from home with zero effort.
The Etrian Odyssey port literally proved that Atlus went from
>we don't do PC ports!
>no matter what games we release, it will also be on Steam, even if it makes zero sense
>will there be a PS6? Will Sony even continue producing hardware?
I've been hearing the same shit since the turn of the century. Take your meds.
Snoy didn't release their own first party dog shit on PC before, but keep copping.
Retard take is retarded
>Atlus had just slapped the P4G files onto the Steam server, and the money kept rolling and still keeps going with zero additional effort.
And it was hilarious. I bought it myself as well.
I hope SOMEONE there at least learned something from that.
I've wanted IV+Final ported to other platforms for so long. Fucking finally
Yuuuup, we're in for some kino lads. Strap on
Fake and gay.
You better not be trying to fool me, anon-kun. It would really make my day to have a good port of IV on the switch.
yeah that would be a dream come true for many
>tfw I destroy the Yamato Perpetual Reactor
this is citra with upscale and photoshopped map and stats
Or it's a PC remaster
atlus doesnt even have the source for nocturne, do you really think they still have 4?
Yes because it's from the mid 10s and not the early 2000s ya dingus
the flood was 2018
Possibly. At least it's not just some mockup taken from the internet
too much effort for a SMT rumor it has to be true
smt has a lot of autists
I'm one, but no one bothers to make rumors like that for atlus
if people really did, they would be complaing about the mess that was SMT V's dev cycle
It doesn't need to be autist, you just need to remember that Atlus is a shit company that loves easy money, so the easiest money around is to get Microsoft money to port a game and have chance of getting some extra money as full price on consoles and Steam.
And lets be honest, after they ported P3 to PC everything is possible and don't forget that P3 port is shit, they just upscaled the textures with AI and you cant barely.
>you can't barely read the images now.
Not as much as other franchises. I'm always surprised to see a high effort fan work.
does nobody mention the picture was taken from a monitor and not a screenshot, this is fake 101 you retards
Ken leak was a monitor shot
is that a next slide button on the right
This is in my top 3 most wanted ports. If this happens to be true I would be fucking stoked. SMTIVA is one of the best mainline games
Where's Persona 6 you fuckers.
come back in 6 years
>Persona 5 is almost 10 years old
>Still no word on Persona 6
What the fuck is Atlus doing?
I mean at least Persona 5 had a teaser before getting delayed like 3 times. If you told someone that Persona 6 was cancelled I don't think they would even argue with you.
Something is going on internally. I think SH2 being a bomb also hurt them.
Persona 5X is what they're doing
I think we'd have it already or at least some news if Hashino was still the director. They're probably being 100% certain that whoever is replacing him can do a good job. I wouldn't be surprised if they're being really strict with P6's development since there's going to be a lot more attention on it due to 5's success.
Wonder if P6 is going to be another Persona 5 or a major paradigm shift like 3-4-5 were from 1 and 2
You really think theyd risk their persona bucks for something fun and new?
I think we're going to get a very safe entry with P6 from a combination of Atlus having really high expectations, and the new director still settling into the role. P7 might be when we could see a shake up.
Hashino didn't have any push back from higher ups about shaking up the franchise with P3 because P2 EP did so badly that the franchise was put on ice.
Enjoy your mobile title by your chinese overlords Perfect World, Personafag.
fuck off and die pedophile
Another 10 years of Persona 5, chud.
Why aren't you black?
I dont see my playstation brand, but SMT4 (vanilla) is one of my favs jrpgs, and the best setting in any videogame ever
>op is so retarded he didnt know nocturne already got an hd remaster
its for xbox/gamepass announcement
If that were the case, the video wouldn't have Steam or Switch logos.
Try again sometime.
>Expects it to only be Goypass only logo'd
Retard. We already know 5 has Steam in the development builds. So it coming is only a matter of time.
4 and 4A being redone to be ported elsewhere is news (if true) and would make sense why the other platforms logos are included in the announcement for Goypass Nocturne.
The gamepass announcement video wouldn't have logos for other platforms on it, retard.
People were shitting their pants for days over the prospect of Persona 5 only being on the windows store because there was no steam logo in the initial announcement.
Smt5 is the fe engage of the series
Story in (poor) service of gameplay
Oh boy I can't wait to enjoy the latest extra cheapo asset flip and pay 70 dorra plus two times 40 dorra DLC plus tip for the privilege.
>tendies losing THREE exclusives
You can't make this shit up lmfaooo
why would they go to every platform except playstation
go fuck yourself
its just offscreen
because this image was made with a snoy-obsessed Gankeredditor
Microsoft is paying for the port and they give shit to nintendo for free all the time.
Tell jim to play nicer and maybe you'd get a port too.
Because sony would demand it to be filled with morons and force all female characters to have mandatory mastectomys.
He’s not wrong anon. Sony is without a doubt the worst gaming company currently.
>MS is so sick of Sony's bullshit they pay Atlus to not release these games on PS
K I N O
Mircosoft has been paying for weebshit to get ported to gamepass for some reason, look at MH Rise.
MH Rise is on PS4 and 5 though
>for some reason
They’re doing it because Xbox is in a DISTANT last place in Japan and they really want a bigger hold of that market
I don't think it's about Japan. They're trying to appeal to weebs just like Sony.
It doesn't have to be mutually exclusive. Xbox having no foothold in Japan is bad though, it should be obvious why being completely absent from one of the biggest gaming markets in the world isn't good. Keep in mind that they were very shy of beating Sony in gen 7 despite no presence in Japan. If their stuff was selling in Japan then it wouldn't be outlandish to say they could have even beaten Nintendo or at least matched the Wii. To put things in perspective, Wii sold like 12 mil in Japan, PS3 sold 10 mil and 360 sold like 1 mil
because all three are already on PS4/PS5
nobody wants to play tendieslop
SMT has been dead thematically and aesthetically since IV.
Can't wait for Doi's ultraman and coomer demons.
>SMT has been dead since the last entry
SMT has been dead ever since Nocturne took away equipment and added spells to the MC.
IV tried to go back to that while appealing to the masses by letting Flynn use spells but it wasn't the same.
V just gave up and copied Nocturne damn near wholesale.
You never understood SMT.
>V just gave up and copied Nocturne damn near wholesale.
by doing things in complete opposites?
This pretty much. I gave up on SMT and Persona already
I am not the audience for these games anymore
I hope it's true so people realize SMT V isn't good
V is the best game in the series. Also best turn based RPG of the last two decades
Even Persona 4 is better than SMT V.
No it isn't
ehhhhhhhhhhhh I'm not happy with SMTV but that's really pushing it
Every single Etrian Odyssey was better so it's not even the best turn based from Atlus.
I don't agree, I like EO for the pure dungeon crawling, but I think the worst SMT game is still a cooler RPG than the best EO game.
I unironically want a SMT4 Remake with combat sinilar to FF7R but with top notch graphics, and a "live" open world with demons fighting in the background, npcs with funny dialogue and a routine than changes the further you progress, etc. I played the game again last year while high as fuck the whole time just imagining this
You have good taste in that IV's atmosphere, soundtrack, setting, etc. is unmatched but you are a shitgay for wanting action combat
Its just that I love everything you mentioned about the game, and it feels like it being wasted. One of the mangas gave me a glimpse of what a proper adaptation could be, I barely care about IPs anymore, just want good games. But I would buy anything SMT4 related immediately
Another brainlet tricked by the dodge button...
FF7R's combat is more turn based than you realize and it's more like MMO combat done right. There's no real action in it and the dodge is more for repositioning out of an AOE than actually dodging attacks.
So what, it's like Xenoblade but not shit? I'm sure it could work as a spinoff series but if they remade SMTIV that way it would be retarded
I played all 4 XB games and liked them. FF7R was fucking horrible to play. Absolutely fucking horrible. More turn based than you think means fucking nothing. It's a shitty action game. Not a jrpg.
Yeah I liked Xenoblade too I wasn't being honest about how I feel. Gameplay videos of FF7R sure looks like cookie cutter action, lord knows I haven't played it
Well I did, just recently in fact. All style, no substance. Cutscenes and cutscenes and cutscenes. Shitty action gameplay with an annoying facsimile of "turn based" slapped on it.
Pirate it if you want but it's shit to play. I should have just watched the cutscenes in Youtube.
Short moviegame. At least in XB I sank 120+ hours on each, (200+on XB2 and X) even the disappointing XB3.
Kek dont listen to this obvious tendieshill, xenoblade are more moviegames and the combat is braindead, ff7r despite it's flaws has a pretty good combat
I don't have a PS4 OR a Switch/WiiU. I emulated the XB games and played the FF7R PC port.
FF7r was completely unfun to play. As for the XB games do you really think they have 100 hours of cutscenes?
Yeah yeah sure anon
You can try to shitpost all you want anon, things don't change. I played all the games I'm talking about and I'm immune to console wars. FF7R is a shitty action game, the farthest thing form a turn based JRPG.
I've played them all too calling 7r a shitty action game while shilling xenoblades is hilarious. You very clearly didn't engage with the stagger system which is one of the most fun action combat systems in any jrpg that has action combat
I don't like action fucking combat, I don't want to fucking dodge and parry and use my reflexes. FF7R is an ACTION game first and foremost. XB games are jrpgs with slow real time gameplay. Not action fucking gameplay. Turn based games are what I like the most and saying FF7R has anything to do with them is just plain false.
Hi. I platinum'd 7R and the stagger system is retarded, if you're competent you will probably bring a boss down to their half HP phase change cutscene which erases their stagger gauge and makes them invincible for a minute so you can't cash in on all the stagger gauge you built up.
If you're lucky you may get a stagger out of a boss once per fight and you'd be better off actually using damaging attacks instead of spamming focus strikes the entire time. If you stagger a boss before half HP it doesn't even matter because their half HP phase change will activate and stop you from doing any more than 50% HP.
7R is made by fucking morons.
And no I'm not going to defend xenoblade games, I just saw your disingenuous gay post and decided to call you out. The stagger mechanic is pointless.
>phase change cutscene
That was the most annoying part. In favor of a super movie cinematic experience the game play suffers. If you're not on NG+ you usually end up wasting your limit breaks and stuff only to see a cutscene popup because the boss reached a specific, unknown to you HP threshold. It's simply not fun.
Yeah the game would be better with less cutscenes honestly, but the cutscene is how they pad the length to make it feel like a full game instead of a small section of a game stretched out.
I honestly felt extremely annoyed with all the tiny shit you climbed under/squeezed through ALL THE FUCKING TIME. It was nice at first but then it screamed padding.
Xenoblade was really boring and too long, FF7R was unironically funnier
>FF7R was unironically funnier
Jesus Christ. Do you people even like jrpgs? Do you even like SMT or are you here for the console wars drama?
FF7R's combat is genuinely brilliant, the problem is people trying to play it like an action game when it truly is just a turn-based game in real time. Unfortunately Square has already abandoned it, with some thought it could be a pillar for JRPGs.
My problem was trying to play it as a mostly turn based jrpg and finding out it's a shitty action game instead. I enjoyed DQ11 immensely compared to FF7R and now those morons at SquareEnix want to make DQ action based as well.
I fucking hate this company. Turn based and real time is an oxymoron. If I have to block and move and dodge and shove moron dicks in my ass then it's an action game. Not a turn based game.
>with combat sinilar to FF7R
have a nice day moron, stop with this retarded trend of asking every game to be an action-lite game
Release the ios port of 1 on Steam you fucking hacks!
2>SJ> 3> 4>1 > If...
I still need to play 4A. Also throw in the Persona 1 + 2 PSP remakes as well.
For me it's
But I still love all of them.
I haven't played 5 yet. No switch.
How do you feel about the SJ remake? I haven't touched that either.
I don't hate it. I think its one of the better re-release versions. Having all the NPCs in Red Sprite and Jack crew having their own sprite is soulful, and while the game is easier its easier because Space Marine skills make him actually a fun party member rather than Vending Machine. Space Yukiko is really obnoxious as a plot device, but the big bad of Redux plot line is actually the Three Wise Men, which is sort of an abandoned plot line in the original, so I thought that was nice.
The strange journey redux version is great. It's Japanese voices only. Has an entire extra dungeon, new endings, and the OST is just as amazing as strange journey.
Yeah the art style for cutscenes and character portraits is shit, but besides that, the game is great.
I hate the alignment system and follow up attacks so much. It would be a 10/10 if they used a press turn system
I wish they would do a proper release of 1 and 2 already.
It would be cool but also you can easily play 1 and 2 (1 even has a nice map hack to give you the same style map as 2) right now. If...and KMT (which are MT1 and 2 but in the SMT 2 engine) and they're all pretty fun
OMGGGGGGG PORT OF GAMES WE ALREADY PLAYED FUCKINGGGG HYYYYYYYPEEEEEEE
I'll just take 4 and apocalypse, you can keep the rest.
>not taking Nocturne
Probably a V sequel, considering both III and IV had one.
OP is taking about all those games coming to Gamepass/Xbox/PC, it hasn't been announced yet but will later
Portlas strikes again
You kidding? Atlus has always been stubborn about NOT porting their games. With the only times they did it being controversial rereleases instead of straight ports.
Yeah Xbros I'm thinking Atlus is our bitch now.
Getting these games on Steam is nice and all but late ports sucks ass, like 10 FUCKING YEARS locked on the fucking 3DS prison.
I hate Atlus sometimes.
Any reason why this isn't fake and gay?
Because it looks like a legitimate leak, especially considering EO ports that got announced just a month ago. Atlus is on a porting spree.
Saving this for later then. I'll have a laugh either way.
>Atlus now thinks SMT started with 3 too
Fuck this gay earth
>IV and IVA on Switch
No one cares about I and II.
SMTII is the most kino cyberpunk setting in vidya history cope moron
SMT 2 is actually the greatest SMT game in terms of story and scale. Shit goes balls to the wall crazy in it in ways that SMT 3 WISHES it could have.
I'd kill a lot of people for a faithful modern day remake of it (they can even add blacks + gay people, I don't give a fuck.)
>I'd kill a lot of people for a faithful modern day remake of it
>(they can even add blacks + gay people, I don't give a fuck.)
Who would they even make Gay that would matter? The law guy? he turns into a dragon and then turns into Satan anyways
>Who would they even make Gay
>get to pound hot demon bussy
How many times are we going to have to teach you this lesson old man?
Messiahs in the Diamond Realm came out 7 years ago. Content yourself with it, we aren't getting anything else ever again.
>waah I really wanted to exploit fusions to make lv90 demons at the beginning of the game and spam Zio for 30 hours!
Yes, and i'll gladly do it again.
Boot up Persona 1 PSP with Mad Max playing on the background, then stop every hour to punch yourself in the nutsack. Boom, SMT1 experience right there.
You can emulate those perfectly on any toaster whereas 3ds emulation is shit up to this day.
>meanwhile, this was tweeted today
Atlus is a very, very confusing company.
tone deaf or ultimate trolling?
My money is on "a little retarded" but who knows. This is the same company that localized two parts of a duology 10 years apart on two separate platforms.
I & II would actually require effort to be remade which is vastly beyond the effort of Atlus as far as anything not Persona or new SMT related.
At least with Nocturne+ they can just run a filter and call it a day.
I would much rather SJ than IV or Apoca though
Can you blame them? No on gives a fuck about SMT, especially the ancient and buried games. SMTV selling as much as it did was glorious.
Recent Persona hype and complete mechanics overhaul saved it. No point remaking old games when they can just pump out VI.
Fatlus doesn't like to remember things that came before 3s in general.
Man even fucking konami is putting some effort into suikoden 1 and 2 remasters
Dunno why atlus is so fucking lazy
>Man even fucking konami is putting some effort into suikoden 1 and 2 remasters
Aren't those emulations of PSP ports?
I mean, they already have the Etrian Engine working on pc so it would just be remaking the assets, maybe adding pressturn or demon co-op, va and portraits and could call it a day.
But anon, SMT I & II have both been remade, multiple times. They would only have to translate the PS1 version, add widescreen, and port it to the Switch. They could also just translate the seoncd one (since the GBA version of I is already officially translated) and then emulate those. They really have it easy, they're just probably afraid that it wouldn't sell, then again they did port Soul Hackers to the 3DS, and the made a sequel, neither of which sold, so who knows.
isn't the best SMT1 remake actually the RPG Maker copy? Or has that changed.
The what now?
I dont think it has a translation
>Minimap on the same screen
Yup, probably definitive version right there
If this is real it confirms that V will not have a Maniax release. This year is when they would’ve announced it going by how they schedule their rereleases.
And that's a good thing.
Would I enjoy these games if I only played Persona 3 FES, P4G, and P5R? I avoided SMT V because the MC looks like a Gaylord and Soul Hackers 2 is apparently horrible.
No you won't enjoy then, now FUCK off.
Play whatever seems interesting. And don’t participate in the mainline fandom.
Literally the only things modern SMT and Persona have in common are the demon designs and being turn based JRPGs
There is no way to tell if you'd enjoy them unless you just fucking play them
Just so you know, it doesnt have faggy dating mechanics or smoeshit
Absolute state of Fatlus fans
SMTV yes, the others are unplayable.
>Plebsonafag calling literally anything gay
lmaoing at your life.
no cause they aren't dating sim trash
Here I'll give you an honest answer
Do you enjoy the combat of Persona (I do so it's perfectly fine to)? If so then yeah, you'll love it. If what draws you to persona are the lighthearted characters + soical link life sim aspects then no, they don't have that at all. They're much more like traditional FF games in that regard. If you're a bit on the fence then I'd recommend starting with Digital Devil Saga 1 and 2 on Ps2 or the Devil Survivor games on 3DS as a good gateway to mainline SMT
>Persona 3 FES
P3/SMT3/DDS are made by almost the same team anyway. Depend how much you like the setting and how much you hate not having sim
You will love IVA
If you are a gorofujo you will LOVE SMTV
Space Marine Bros...Why do we keep getting ignored in promotional arts and such?
If you aren't numbered you aren't mainline. Simple as. You'll get your recognition when If does.
>If you aren't numbered you aren't mainline
NINE chads, we can't stop winning.
But really, If..., Nine and SJ are considered part of mainline, they were even featured in the 25th anniversary trailer as major releases.
Demonicas being present in IV confirms SJ as mainline.
The only reason that SJ didn't become SMTIV was because it didn't have the Tokyo setting.
I'm pretty sure that has been debunked already.
Strange Journey was always a spin off. The line people always quote is that when it was finished it had the quality of a mainline game, but they always designed it as a spin off.
they're on a nebulous middle ground between mainline and spin off
when the FUCK is NINE going to stop being akin to abandonware trapped on the Xbox?
After they decide to resurrect Imagine
im still mad i had an account on the private server that i was slowly finishing and the cunts had to DMCA the owners and cuck me
This whole story is fucking insane
>Some cunt decides to make his own private server
>uploads it on Steam (yeah) exactly one day before Atlus pushes their SMT storefront
>Atlus retaliates by hitting all the 4ish private servers, along with the one asset database they all collectively share
Its all because one faget couldn't take rejection well.
>Atlus retaliates by hitting all the 4ish private servers
I'm pretty sure they only retaliated against the one offending server + COMP_HACK (the server infrastructure) and Reimagine took down their server out of fear of legal action, but I haven't kept up with this since the initial incident so someone correct me if I'm wrong.
you're probably right, here's the blurb from the ReImagine Discord (still up, all communication is blocked)
We were recently informed that one of our 'competitors' was served a court filing, and that Atlus is currently seeking legal action against them and the COMP_Hack team. While ReIMAGINE hasn't been served any sort of notice (that we know of), Atlus's decision to outright sue instead of issue a C&D has made us worry about the safety of the users who helped keep the game alive.
So with a heavy heart, we regret to inform everyone that the decision has been made to close down the ReIMAGINE server permanently.
It's been a wild 5 years, and we thank everyone for their unending support for a much loved game.
Thanks for all, DB.
As for those who would like to continue their adventures in post apocalyptic Tokyo alone, we were planning on releasing our custom content files, but at a later date when this has all blown over. However, since the character export feature is broken, we don't have a way of allowing you to download your progress. Releasing the database entirely is also a non-option due to it containing username, email, and salted passwords.
Straightening out some facts for news outlets who pick this up:
ReIMAGINE, COMP_Hack and Rekuiemu are all separate entities and have always operated independent of each other
ReIMAGINE has never accepted any sort of donations/subscriptions/run ads/w.e since day 1. We have never generated even a single cent of revenue. All operating costs were paid out of pocket.
ReIMAGINE has never filed/claimed any sort of ownership or copyright over IMAGINE or its IP, and have clearly stated that they belonged to Atlus and Cave.
Thanks. Still sucks that it's down though given that Atlus seems to have zero plans for it.
I wish one of these private servers would finally do a counter lawsuit claiming the original game's Terms of Services is broken once the game becomes unplayable from official platforms
SMT can't handle the kino of SJ, they need muh tokyo or else they go insane
SJ was always meant to be a spinoff
Its ok bro their opinions don't matter, no one that hasn't played SMT1 and SMT2 already will play them in the future
>P4 and not P4G
Trips of truth
Is Atlus ever gonna make new games or just ports old games that everyone already played and mobile gacha games for chinks bug eaters?
They put out a new game last, it's just that nobody wanted to play it, especially not fans of the game it was supposedly a sequel to.
>Not porting Persona 1 and 2 Duology PSP ports to Steam first
Baffling, but Atlus doing more ports is always a good thing.
They are working on the remakes, please be patient.
Not blurry enough, looks fake
Assuming this is real, I would love to play IV on something that isn't my 8 year New 3DS.
Why would anyone play the dumbed down versions of the Persona games? I don't understand
OH FUCK IT'S COMING OOOHHHHHH IM COOOOOMING
>They're bringing all of them to Steam/PC
Based if true, Nocturne is already on Steam anyway, but It'd be cool if the others came to Steam.
and gamepass. since p3/p4/p5r, soul hackers 2 are there.
Even if this ends up being fake, I think 4 and 4A coming to Steam eventually will happen. The 3DS eshop shutting down makes the game near impossible to get for official fags.
I don't even think I can safely say I'll be excited seeing how Faglus treated the Nocturne remaster and how they priced the Etrian ones.
you telling me i bought and downloaded all the smt games on 3ds last year for nothing?
shit, these will probably come with all the dlc too. gay.
>buying anything on the 3ds
>even then buying anything but devil survivor.
Soul Hackers is the best Megaten game on 3DS, and you know it.
I took like 40 minutes auto attacking this dolphin to death
Soul Hackers is "fine", but it's still just persona-lite, complete with aesthetcis > gameplay.
SMT IV at least has the best story in the series.
>Soul Hackers is "fine", but it's still just persona-lite, complete with aesthetcis > gameplay
Say you know nothing about SMT without saying it. I swear you tards think SMT 3 is the only SMT game to ever exist or something
>Soul Hackers is "fine", but it's still just persona-lite, complete with aesthetcis > gameplay.
That's Soul Hackers 2 and it was shit. The original is the last old school MegaTen game for all intents and purposes
>That's Soul Hackers 2 and it was shit.
Oh is that what the tard was talking about? Was going to say, how the fuck is Soul Hackers 1 like Persona 4.
>The original is the last old school MegaTen game
I mean the cool thing about oldschool MegaTen is the dungeon crawling, and SH is very lax in that department. The combat and fusion systems are ok at best, but fall flat often because they're glorified autobattlers most of the time.
Take your own life
worse, i literally bought a $200 3ds off ebay just so i could buy and own the smt games on there because i thought ports were never ever. i haven't even gotten around to playing most of them. fuck me i guess.
Are you literally retarded? Why didn't you buy a cfw/modded 3ds at least so you can play everything for free? Undubbed too for that matter if that's your cup of tea.
cause i am kinda retarded
also i am christian and believe pirating is stealing, especially when the product is being sold at a reasonable price (they were on sale)
More like some sort of protestant heresy, normal Christians aren't that anal about that shit. Just pirate the game. You should have emulated them in the first place.
I can't believe someone bought a 200$ 33ds in 2022 AND the SMT games on it. Did you at least buy physical so you can resell them?
not to get autistic but I'd say cringe protestants would be the ones most lax about shit like that. Stealing is stealing, man. whether it be digital or physical.
>Did you at least buy physical so you can resell them?
no lol. that would have been way more expensive. I suppose ill be able to sell the 3ds itself in the future. with the shop shutting down and all I could probably make a profit. All 6 games on there were less than $40 combined.
>You should have emulated them in the first place.
I did. IV, IVA, and strange journey at least. I just wanted to own them "physically".
>I just wanted to own them "physically".
You're just pulling my leg at this point.
hey i already told you i am a little retarded
I assume all DLC are in. What about the Street Pass mechanic from IV?
Streetpass mechanic probably got swapped for the internet search like in EO
the blasphemous might of the nahobeano.....
What the fuck why? She was adorable. Is it a dub thing? I played with JP and I liked her a lot.
Go listen to her English VA. It's like sounding with a cheese grater.
Filthy disgusting dub morons deserve the rope. Pathetic casual filth.
imagine if yukiko actually had a personality
I enjoyed adventuring with her.
Calm down, my man. It's just a drawing.
I think she's both cute and obnoxious in English and Japanese.
Man both IV and Apocalypse need so much cleaning up that I doubt that it'll happen or will look good if it does happen.
Dont get me wrong I want it to happen, but don't want a half assed port much like what Etrian is currently getting.
Flying onahole daughter wife
Did you actually commissioned this shit?
Not too sure about this. Especially after how bad the 3 PC "remake" was.
no one called it a remake. RETARD
and dont even play, skill selection in fusion already makes it 10x better than the ps2 version.
kill all nostalgiamorons
>He needs skill selection to beat the game
>it's another "noctard pretends his game is difficult" episode
no you dont need it. that's because if youre familiar with the games mechanics, nocturne is piss easy. the only tension in the gameplay comes from obnoxious dungeon design and hoping that you dont get ambushed and have your whole team wiped in one turn by a random encounter while youre walking through bland empty hallway #467.
it's inclusion however does improve the game OBJECTIVELY
nocturnebabs are such jokes. you can tell they ahven't played anything besides 3 because any sane person would realize that Vs Shiva and Demifiend fights are harder than all fights in nocturne combined.
I'm not pretending anything, the fact that you need skill selection to beat a game that has shit like Bright/Dark Might very early in the game in a piss easy game like Nocturne is astounding to me.
>noctard fails to comprehend my post
not sure why I expected anything else. It's like trying to communicate with a fucking monkey, I swear.
You're the one projecting shit with the whole "noctard pretends his game is difficult" when I said nothing about difficulty, SMT in general is not difficult with only Apocalypse having a proper "hard mode", V is a joke because the game punishes you for being creative in lower levels.
>Be creative at lower levels
>Beat bosses you normally wouldn't be able too
You can beat Matador at level 8 in Nocturne (level 5 on Normal)
Now try to beat the Hydra at level 5.
Nothing personnel, Hydra.
Earliest Dormina is level 7 and you will deal 1HP of damage at most each time using Bufu. Try again.
It was a remaster, not a remake
2 MORE WEEKS!
Synchronicity Prologue sequel WHEN?
>That time atlus made jack frost 2 for the lulz
>Its one of the better platformers out there
Sometimes i wonder what the fuck goes on with that company
Atlus works in mysterious ways
Team Ladybug is a competent developer unlike Atlus.
any chances of Digital Devil Saga getting a HD remaster?
The original is perfectly fine as is, fuck you
>stuck on PS2 at $90+ each 2nd hand
Game is like 40 dollars.cdn
don't know what it is but i've been tracking DDS on ebay for years now, in the UK the game is practically unavailable, even couple months i'll put it in out of curiosity and just straight up no one is selling it at all ever. when it does come up it's always international results for the NTSC/J versions. I just checked now and there's a single PAL listing for £80 each. I got lucky and nabbed sealed copies of DDS1 for fucking £15 and 2 for £35 a couple years ago, but since I noticed it's become an autism curiosity of mine to check now and then
dds is on ps3 store
doesnt DDS have a gamebreaking glitch/bug on the PS3 version? or is that one of the other SMT games
also >digital download saga
All the SMT/Persona games on ps3 have bugs and glitches, plus chances to have your data just get corrupted.
I had persona 3 and persona 4 just randomly delete my first save file.
I got extremely lucky because I accidentally made some backup saves like an hour or two before that happened.
>a well-designed JRPG that has just a little too much combat
This one always gets me. Even the Persona journalist obsession doesn't come close to the ridiculousness of that statement. God bless IGN Italy, the only sensible Journalist
tell me those are fake quotes..,..
The "persona without the heart" is very real. Its from an IGN Twitter post, iirc.
Have the 4 version of that picture while we're at it.
>The Darksouls of Persona
I like 3 but I hate that if fostered a fanbase of fake fans that think hard = better and that every SMT game must be some super hardcore game or it's SHIT.
You say that but one of my biggest complaints about 4 was that it was too easy. I guess it's kind of hard to make a game as hyper offense focused as that game is.
Still enjoyed it, don't regret my time playing it.
What's even funnier is that SMT games aren't even hard, they're just really punishing, which are two distinctive things.
3 isn't even that hard once you realize how to break it into little pieces. There's so much busted shit in your favor.
3 loses most of its difficulty once you get access to Fog breath and can keep passing it down to various demons. At least until Dekunda starts entering the picture.
That's another big complaint I have about SMT in general. There's a lot of broken stuff you can use to tip the scales in your favor, which means they have to just start giving EVERY boss some way to counteract it. Like how 4 has bosses that spam Almighty moves once you trigger something.
I'm not even sure if there's something they can do to allow people to have these moves and tactics without just letting the boss bypass them in some way.
well than the goals get pushed further back and they say you never played it if you only played on the intended difficulty normal and not on hard
I've ONLY ever played SMT 3 on hard. I actually think Persona 3's hardmode is more difficult. SMT 3 can be busted stupid easy
I don't know if I'd go as far as saying they're harder as Nocturne hard mode but I would agree with you that people like to pretend P3 and P4 hard modes aren't hard just because of the
>persona is for visual novel romance weebs
>smt is for hardcore demon gamers like me
But some of the Tartarus bosses are definitely scarier than the majority of Nocturne bosses. And The Answer bosses for sure are harder than most of Nocturne's bosses. Especially during the huge stretch of the game where Fog Breath fucks everything up.
>the dark souls of persona
They're all real except the lacks Persona-lity one, I'm pretty sure that one is from shitpost threads here spoofing those reviews. But the other ones I remember all being real, there was a minor controversy over it.
I fucking hate Game journalists, you have no idea.
>EN dub only
EN dub for that game in particular is actually very good.
I vehemently disagree. I am not American.
well I liked it, I thought everyone nailed the acting. Like, it was done in the PS2 era, and clearly the voice direction gave a shit.
You're welcome to be a weeb and miss out on games just because you actually understand the language. However at least make an effort to learn japanese.
Believe it or not I even played KMT. I'll toss it back at you, what difference there is in tone between Soul Hackers and Persona 4? Both are scooby-doo mystery shenanigans, except P4 is longer and takes place in highschool while Soul Hackers is shorter and takes place in the 90's. Ultimately both of them are very lighthearted takes on the series, except at least Persona 4 had two hard bosses early on while Soul Hackers is autobattle all the way through.
>Believe it or not I even played KMT.
I liked KMT actually. I know it's probably not very faithful but it was a nice fun game. KMT2 is like a super weird beta SMT 2 though. Still not sure what to think of that.
Also tone wise SH and Persona 4 are nothing alike in terms of tone so idk what you're even talking about. Might as well compare it to Demikids or something
Yeah I heard it finally fixed the dogshit SJ endings
It's gonna sound weird, but I actually liked MT1 more than MT2. There's something therapeutic about exploring the dungeon, although it was very nice to see all the plot devices in MT2 that were used in SMT 2, SMT IV and even Apocalypse.
>Persona 4 are nothing alike in terms of tone
They're are very similar in tone. Both are lighthearted games about highschoolers solving a mystery involving the supernatural. Both of them have these half serious story where the tension constantly gets cut in half by tounge-in--cheek comedy skits.
And if you put Soul Hackers in the timeline you'd realize it's closer to the prototype of how persona series followed up in tone after Persona 2.
>It's gonna sound weird, but I actually liked MT1 more than MT2.
Actually I sort of agree. 1 was really simple but a nice little game. Like I said, 2 felt like the beta for SMT 2 and while that was cool I think I just like SMT 2 more.
Game takes place in america
And the voices sound like shit so no thank you.
They emulate extremely well though.
It's nothing but endless suffering for DDSchads.
>no crossover game where each of the alignment reps follow the NINE alignment system
Yakumo would definitely be Dark Neutral, Gigabro is Neutral Neutral and Bonobeau has to be Light Neutral.
An enhanced release of SMTIV with Apocalypse's improved gameplay and extra demons back-ported to it would probably be my favorite SMT game of all time. And if Digimon Cyber Sluts can do the same thing, I'm gonna be pissed if Atlus doesn't bother with it.
I don't really think it's possible. They would basically have to reinvent the entire game to make it work. Every single demon was redesigned mechanically for IVA, IV's demons aren't actually individually designed at all they follow archetypes like balanced type demon or heavy strength low agillity demon. Affinities completely changes the game. My expectation is that IV re-release won't touch anything. The only good thing is they'll probably include the incredibly scummy DLC demons up front.
>SMT 4 but with 4's combat and 4/4A OST
>Leads straight into 4A
It would be fucking amazing. Not gonna get my hopes up too high after I bought soul hackers 2
Yeah go ahead, laugh at me.
I don't think the gameplay improvement from IV to IVA is nearly as big as Cybersleuth to hacker's memory
And besides, the story would still be inferior to SJ
>4 and Final
God I hope this is real.
Given how awful the P3P port was, I trust this will be just as bad
Did ATLUS ever give a reason why they ported Portable and not FES?
lost the source code
No but I suspect it's purely because of the Female Protagonist.
Because they're remaking P3
Keep believing that when it's actually Project Reeeee fantasy
Because ATLUS has a habit of "losing" source code to their older games, just like Square Enix
No, but I think it was because it was the most recent version. They should’ve just built a custom emulator for FES.
On the Japanese side, Portable is the enhanced remake (new characters, Persona 4 and Catherine references, skill cards, fast travel.) FES was its own standalone game/sequel at a budget price. A special edition containing The Journey and The Answer together was also available. In the west Atlus USA only released the special edition.
>SMT IV released from 3DS purgatory
I wish, would double dip in an instant.
How many PC newfriends would he filter?
I don't know why people meme about this guy. I remember beating him first try.
Because it's a bunch of newfags first taste of SMT and depending on who you got as a partner for the fight (WALTER) you're gonna have a bad time when he ends it thus!
It's because if you're unlucky then you get Walter as an ally and you get SMIRK'D and potentially one shotted. Some people are also really stubborn and just kept trying to brute force it instead of going back to find a demon with bufu.
Zero. Everyone at this point knows his gimmicks and they'd undoubtedly add a part into the game to let you choose which Samurai will support you in battle so everyone would just pick Johnathan because hoyboys are active detriments.
either it's off screen or it's fake and from a seething nintendo child
>Nintendo exclusives are coming to Xbox and Steam!
>A SEETHING NINTENDO CHILD MADE THIS FAKE
Holy shit rent free lmao
Will they reveal SMT 5: Bigger version yet?
Someone please answer me? I've been asking this for days in multiple SMT threads and still haven't gotten an answer.
We don't know. Why would we know when they're going to reveal SMTV Maniax? If we knew then the threads would be filled to the brim with people begging Atlus to fix the level scaling damage calculations.
I mean, they've never not. They've also talked about thanking players for the great sales for 5, they've been very silent about the game since release, there's almost certainly a Maniax/Apocalypse style thing they're working on.
>taking a photo of your monitor means leak
I will never understand this trope
Not every monitor shot is a leak but 99% of real leaks are monitor shots
Monitor shots help hide faults in image editing. If we had the raw images in full quality we would probably see issues left and right. But as of right now, any issues can just be chalked up to a shitty camera.
are you retarded?
Looks fake as fuck but my dream game is SMT4 rebalanced with Apocs gameplay and using the new designs over the shit guest designs. 4's atmosphere is top notch it just needs gameplay balancing to be harder.
I fucking wish but it’s probably only going to be SMT V
Thanks for beta testing tendies
Can't wait to play Smt5 at 4k60fps
You can already do that on your PC bro.
Emulation doesn't have soul pcchud
That doesn't even make sense. Emulation frees you from having to wait for ports or actually buy a Switch. You don't have to pay for games either and the atlus stuff will have denuvo.
every nocturne port is emulation retard, they dont have the source anymore
They do for SMTIV and V tardo
The remaster isn’t emulation. It was rebuilt in a new engine.
SMT IV with QoL stuff from Apocalypse would be my hopium but knowing Atlus they will most likely do nothing.
Gotta wonder who it was at Atlus who finally nutted up and told the higher-ups last year that they should, in fact, do things that make more money if they want more money. He's probably gotten a huge raise and is considered the smartest man at the company now.
Well, Nocturne Remaster bombed on Steam so...
Doesn't matter. You're chasing long term. just put your shit in every single platform and chase money over time.
>another Sony bad thread they won’t get this multi platform game
Zz tale as old as time
Hypothetically if the announcement is in may, how long until release? I just started 4 and was going to play through it but if it will come out in a few months I'll just wait
Ports release in August/September
just play the 3ds version, game was made for it, using coins to revive is the only way to play
>it's another retards use "muh level scaling" as an excuse for why they're shit at V
use buffs retards
no playstation? that's hard to believe
Have you seen PS software sales in Japan?
Smt3 sold about evenly between switch and PS4 in jap land
Those supposed ports would release 3 years after that.
PS4 sw sales cratered this year while PS5 has the worst sw sales in the history of the Japanese market.
Nah, series with a bit of history on both ps and ninty sell about even. Like the recent fatal frame port that was originally wii exclusive
That probably has more to do with interest being low among all platforms.
Previoius port of the Wii U game from 2021 sold 3x more than this one and PS4 was the leading SKU.
Have you seen exbox sales
MS is paying for it to be on Gamepass.
Kek, I knew it, when I saw a 60% discount on SMT3 I knew that they would put on Xbox game pass this year, thank god I did not fall for the Atlus gnomish tricks, SMT chads we eating good on Xbox Game pass.
SMT 1 and 2 are ignored again and stuck on Shitendo switch in Jap land. Fuck this franchise.
Lmao they're really pulling the p3-5 on all modern platforms but for smt this time? Shit I'll take it. 3s already on PS but I'll gladly take 4/4a and 5. I wish they'd stop forgetting about their 1 and 2s though
I hate jp dub of 4, en dub is legit better
>IV port instead of a remake
the 3ds held that game back so fucking badly, i hate that all the graphically good smts are nocturne and V which have the deserted post apocalyptic world instead of the whole kino apocalyptic tokyo theme that 2 and iv has.
Fuck this gay world, its a pain to be a SMT, all SMTs with great premise and world are stuck in shitty hardware and the ones that looks dumb and generic goes out in great hardware.
Does that actually happen in the movie fucking lmao
SMT3 made good use of it's desert world by restricting it entirely to the world map you travel very quickly and don't stick around on too long.
SMT5 is made by incompetent retards.
I hate that you fags have devolved megaten threads into console war gayry.
>just bought V
>already feeling bad because it looks and runs like ass in the switch
Emulate it. It will only get worse. The framedrops in the castle after Ishtar's boss fight are horrible.
You can also use mods on PC. Mostly booba mods but still.
Just beat it, then buy IV&A port if it actually comes to pass.
The fact that they got SMT V running on Switch at all is a miracle. The thing literally sounds like it's about to blow up.
It actually runs alright for things like battles and cutscenes. The only really bad performance is the texture pop ins (which is a problem with Unreal in general) and the frame rate on distant objects. Really only expecting the latter to be cleared up on the re-release.
I really don't get it. It runs fine. I even played it mostly portably
>It runs fine. I even played it mostly portably
Is this some sort of joke? Do you really not understand or SEE that the switch lowers the resolution to vomit tier on handheld?
Jesus Christ man at the castle the game drops to like 20 fps at some point DOCKED.
Do you only play Switch games and can't tell the difference between sub 30fps anymore?
Of course I notice the performance and resolution drops on Switch. I just don't consider them making the game unplayable.
I have Switch, PS4 and PC.
>playing IV without "3D
What's the point just grab a used 3DS?
Wait, wasn't Nocturne already ported to everything? Or is this some kind of collection with it included?
Xbox doesn't have it, but regardless this shit's clearly fake.
that's all great but
Smt4 and 4a will run flawlessly on an emulator just like 3hd does. That only leave 5. It works well enough but a good pc port would be better. So if it's the only one worth buying I guess that's fair.
>tendies when they see this announcement
They are still getting 4 and 4A on switch so yeah.
Did you mean to say snoys???
>Salivating over shitty ports while Sonychads are getting SMT VI, Persona 6 and Re Fantasy
Snoys are the only ones who lost today
i hope. i hate emulating the 3ds
Skill issue + lack of technical knowledge.
there is no knowledge needed for emulating in current year.
you just hit play and any specific setting can be googled.
its just shit resizing 2 screens to one bigger screen while also suffering from abysmal 240p resolution blown up.
ds/3ds emulation is dogshit and i rather strange journey get ported than 5 which can just be emulated fine
You're exactly right, do not listen to that gay you replied to.
Yeah citra kinda ran like ass for a while.
Did enjoy playing persona Q2 on it though.
I played the entirety of FINAL on Citra and enjoyed it. Would have never bothered finishing the game on my shitty OG 3DS, actual piece of shit hardware.
So is this real? I hope it is cuz I'd like to see IV and V on Steam.
Nuwa is so fucking hot
There are people in this world who think a developer that does something like this is not the epitome of soul. Atlus are boneheads sometimes, especially corporate. But they're the real deal
Nuwa has individually rigged toes. This was done exclusively for the cutscene where she steps on the angels where the camera focuses on her toes
What the heck. Post a screenshot of that scene if possible.
First 20 or so seconds
This just proves my theory that someone at Atlus is a footfag. There's way too many barefoot demons.
It's definitely not Kaneko.
There's a footfag on the dev team as well as someone into minigirls.
Maybe they're the same person.
I know who it is, it's Entire Devteam
Nuwa's model has each of her toes rigged separately.
For me, it's tit01
>She isn't just milf
>She is a snake milf
>her argumentation for siding with humanity is because we're all her children
>she still has zero issue fucking Yakumo though
Not sure if based.
I like her design, and it sucks she's stuck as a V demon
Tbhtbh a game with these two would be so much better than what we got
I ship Nuwa and Nahobino
Nahobino is for the Shin Megami Tensei V tm
It's gonna be on Playstation too right? It's just off screen right.....
Not Persona-enough for the Sony standard. Too much gameplay
Wasn't persona 5 a fucking Playstation exclusive? This makes no sense
At first yes and then Atlus backpedaled and remembered it's not 2000 anymore.
I am pretty sure Sony has exclusivity time frame over the Persona series.
It worked because I bought p5 on PS3 and P5R on PS4. Those were the days when Persona was really a PS exclusive. Now that the series has been ported elsewhere there's no reason to buy a PS instead of playing on PC/Switch
No. thats the bizzare thing anon, we all thought that.
Oh nintendo bought exclusive rights for the SMT mainline and sony for persona but now its becoming obvious this was all just atlus retarded unknowable mind at work
I mean the most likely scenario is that contracts expired, Atlus asked for more money to renew the contract claiming it's too big for PS for just the amount they asked back in PS2 era, and it just died off.
Persona 5 Royal got a PC release a few months back. it was really good
Anyone interested in JRPGs has long given up on Sony, come the fuck on. I sold my PS4 the moment they started censoring CGs when the Switch and Steam versions were uncensored.
idk what a cg is so I don't care what you think
Then that's cool since you obviously don't care about jrpgs. Either way I bet these ports(if real) will make their way to PS too, no reason not to take their money unless Microsoft paid for exclusivity which I really doubt.
I never said I cared about jrpgs lmao, stop talking to me you fucking retard
Then why did you reply to me you imbecile? Why are you even in this thread?
are you mentally well, anon? Might have missed a few meds this morning.
Nocturne ""HD"" is one of the most lazy ports in recent years, those fags didn't even care to fix the audio.
Anyone that actually thinks Fatlus is even considering remaking SMT I and II from the ground up are beyond retarded and straight up deluded
Fuck I forgot about that. I had to use user edited music mod to make it bearable.
The one good thing you can say is that with the voice acting, they actually sprung for Reuben Langdon on Dante.
Paul Eiding voicing Lucifer is the single best casting they've ever done. I can't imagine him voiced by anyone else now, it's a perfect match.
Paul Eiding is always great.
I WANT IT NOOOOOOW
I fixed Isabeu's hairstyle. Please mod it in the PC release
No thank you. Give back monke.
>getting rid of the monkey ears
Die. Death. Murder. Homicide. Carnage. Maiming. Slaughter.

LEAVE MY MONKEY ALONE
All you did was muss her hair you swine!
Cool, but I've already played and beaten those games. Wake me up when SMT VI is announced.
I have never played SMT4. Does it emulate well?
from what i've heard, apparently the only real issue is a black box when a demon dies or shows up or something
I played through 4 and Apocalypse over the last couple months via Citra and it didn't give me any issues besides the black box effect
mentioned. It's just a minor graphical glitch that happens when you kill demons
>no strange journey
You'd just whine that it was Redux anyways
No I wouldn't, because I prefer Redux over the original.
When will those cunts make a 3D model of Mastema?
they'll just use the one from the gacha game dx2
Big opportunity missed for him to sleaze it up in V.
I really liked his portrayal in IV where he's actually chill and wants to help humans, and the butthurt angels want to murder him for not being in their clique.
>fight screen pops up
>"lol just kidding"
That was a good fakeout.
Oh yeah, It totally got me, even though it was surprising so I expected some meme fight
It didnt hit as hard considering I played SJR after IV but I knew the legend
Do you even mobage?
fuck man I wish dx2 was actually a good game
it was actually pretty good the first 6 months-ish, then they went full retard with the premium power creep. i still think it got the most based collabs out of any gacha though. bayonetta, dmc 5, berserk, and ghost in the shell, pretty awesome.
>That time sonic became a literal demon
I'm literally only interested in Strange Journey because the plot sounds awesome, also, didn't they fuck up Nocturne horribly with the remaster?
They fucked up the plot of Strange Journey with the remake, too.
not really, since you can ignore it completely after the first forced encounter with the girl.
>first forced encounter
Will they unfuck the requirements needed to unlock IVs true Neutral route?
I got Neutral my first time through by hating demons and angels
Getting neutral has a fair bit of wiggle room plus you can always check at the bar. It's doing every sidequests that's a pain
They'd need to re-balance alignment points entirely
>choose to go with walter and say you'll destroy the status quo
>have to do law ending anyway because earlier you told a random woman you were a human and turned in a random sidequest to give wine to hugo
Many such cases
why does atlus keep remaking and rereleasing games that don't need it?
Well the 4 duology is stuck on the 3DS. It'd be nice to play those on something else. Though the garden gnomes running Atlus reneged on their promise to have a sale before the 3DS store shut down. So fuck em, I'll pirate it.
this is atlus new mascot, deal with it
If they'd made Figue the main heroine instead of Ringo, SH2 would have sold better.
figue is an ugly slut traitor and if she were the main character you wouldn't get to look an ringo's amazing ass while walking through all those corridors
I genuinely don't know what they expected with Soul Hackers 2. The SMTfags didn't want the Personashit, and the Personafags don't want anything without life sim elements.
Fatlus got high on their own farts after P5 and figured everything they made would sell. So Japanese SMT fans rejecting SH2 and all others thinking it looks super generic was pretty fucking hilarious to see.
Her game... flopped.
You know remember the aggressive shilling Ganker did for Soul Hackers 2
he looks like that ugly bitch from that neet girl dating game kek
I mean, it's not wrong, Persona art is disgusting.
I wouldn't go that far but Soul Hackers took a lot more effort in art design and execution of it. Shame they forgot about everything else.
Her game was an embarrassing flop, and thank God for that.
BUENOS DIAS RINGO
If this ends up being real I will fucking do a mothman only apocalypse run and stream it on Twitch
Thanks for beta-testing SMTV on your shitty hardware switchfags. PC always wins
this shitposting falls flat because I don't know a single pcfag that doesn't also have a switch.
I own a switch, bought SMT5 physical and still emulated it on my PC because I couldn't stand the switch's disgusting visuals or performance. it's still sealed on my shelf.
your game looks like shit and I experienced it the best way possible. cope.
you might as well just admit you don't own the console and game, and just say you were waiting for it to come on PC instead of inventing whatever lie.
It played and looked fine on Switch, and obviously the PC port will tune up the graphics a bit but it will be nothing groundbreaking either.
>looked fine on Switch
Are you the same retard who says it didn't drop like 5+ frames on normal gameplay? Come the fuck on. Everywhere you talk about this game people complain about the atrocious performance and the hideous visuals, especially on handheld mode or on Lite.
I'm another anon from earlier itt who had no problems playing it portably. "Atrocious performance" is an overstatement and it looks beautiful. Resolution could be better though.
I also had no problem with P5 Royal on Switch. I beat the original on PS4 in 2017.
>it looks beautiful. Resolution could be better though.
Also P5R is heavily stylized which helps mask a lot of the actual graphics. Defending V's performance isn't the hill you want to die on anon.
I dunno who you're talking to, but again the Switch version was fine. The complaints are more blowing things out of proportion. It's not like I'm even denying the PC port will look better but I think some people's priorities are simply fucked, especially for a turn-based game.
have a nice day fat <3
V on Ganker
alright australian dude you do own them
but it begs the question why you buy a handheld system and its games without accepting that framerate & graphic quality will be both a concession, then have the gals to complain when it happens.
>It played and looked fine on Switch
Smartest mermaid fan
>Anon actually delivers
I had a switch until SMTV came out and then I sold it once SMTV became emulatable without the blackface
>SMTV became emulatable without the blackface
There was a mod for that day 1 wasn't there?
I think there was some sort of workaround for one of the emulators, but regardless, both emulators worked it out within one or two days of release
tbh what's the point of the PC port when you can run the switch game at 4K 60fps on an emulator already?
there's even big boob and nude mods for all the demons
>big boob and nude mods for all the demons

Choice should be obvious.
Doi defenders deserve death
>i dont care about coom factor, i appreciate kaneko's suggestive silhouettes & poses
Ah yes the very distinctive Kaneko silhouette designs of purple/green people in togas, or all of the random kaneko designs that just add flags/dicks onto shit for absolutely no reason. And who can forget all of those Kaneko demons with their tits out, or fucking Diana's design? Totally not coomershit like Doi's designs! Once again Kanekofags reveal they don't play any actual SMT games and instead just jerk off to the art posted in these threads.
From coom factor alone V is a massive success and you're gay.
Fionn is one of the best demon designs ever and Mannangaal is great as well. Why are Kanekofags always the most fucking insufferable gay pissbabies ever? Oh right because they never actually play any of the fucking games.
what I want
>4 PC port
>SJ PC port
>remakes of 1 and 2
as I usually pirate games, I would buy those instantly
I don't think so. I mean even the DS games they tried to fix for PC are also weird.
I have no idea how they are gonna handle the etrian odyssey games, and ghost trick are gonna work on pc.
Even 999 and zero time dilemma on pc were kinda weird.
Well from the screenshots they've shown it looks like this while exploring and the battles are just what the top screen was full screen. It's a weird way to do it.
are these games for people who only want to look at background art? Why are the battles so uninteresting?
They're for people REALLY into dungeon crawling.
its a dungeon crawler zoom zoom, only based boomers such as myself play kino like that
You type like an actual toddler.
yikes stay mad kiddo, pow, you are dead, not big surprise
I like the dungeon crawling, the map drawing, the music, and the battle mechanics
Etrian Odyssey is for people who thought the transition from MT to SMT casualized the games by introducing an auto-map, more dialogue, less grinding, and smaller less complicated dungeons.
If doing things like spending 20 hours grinding a second party of Survivalists and Ronin to mid-late game levels so you can beat 1 specific boss in under 3 turns so you can get the true ending doesn't appeal to you, you may not be the target audience.
Has a 3DS game EVER been fixed to work on real systems?
only one that immediately comes to mind, and not 3DS but the etrian trilogy is coming to main consoles
I see. You fatluses see this actually happening then? Might be cool, especially if the art isn't just upscaled.
They just ported Persona 3 and 4 to the bone and switch with Atlus saying more is to come. Their is rumors Strangest Journey and the 3DS Soul Hackers is getting ported over in the fall. The company as a whole is needing quick cash so it be no surprise if they took the easy money route of all their old games getting ported out.
I'm not following, do you mean like ports such as Resident Evil revelations? Cause yeah a lot of 3DS games have been ported over the years
>exclusively not on Playstation
That does put a smile on my face
Alright I'll bite and speculate on this,
If this is true, this is probably the result of Xbox ponying up cash for the ports so they can get them on Game Pass Day One, ATLUS and Xbox have a working relationship like this with Persona 3P,4G, and 5R releasing on Game Pass, 3P and 5R being (techincally) Day One Game Pass releases
Xbox clearly wants to expand their relationship with Japanese devs and publishers and SEGA has been a big one with most of the Yakuza games being on Game Pass, they are probably aware that Persona 6 is in development (who fucking knows how far) and want to have a good working relationship so they can get that sweet Persona 6 Reveal at one of their events
Xbox did this with Bandai Namco promoting all their weird anime games in order to score that Elden Ring reveal
May reveal could fit the E3 timeframe
Anyway, it is plausible but could be as fake if we have SMT fans who are on the level of fake Smash leakers
Also OP, if this is real and you leaked this by taking pictures on your phone during meeting in Marketing or something, they could probably figure out who you are based on the angle of the photo taken and figuring out who sat there
Microsoft also bankrolled the PC/Xbox ports of Yakuza 3-7 to have the whole series on Gamepass.
