I'm ready to bet it'll be something like that.

Oh with all the complications thinking about it too hard will brought, I'm sure that any mention to it will be little references and cameos in passing, nothing more.
Example: since Persona Q is supposed to be canon, that makes also Theodore canon, but then what is supposed to be the female P3 MC?

Theo has been canon since the original Persona 4 arena since he was mentioned by Margaret and Elizabeth there. However FeMC has never been canon only Theo is.

At first, I was like "Then why bother declaring it canon?" and then I was like "Oh right, this way they aren't creating a new continuity and so they can bring closure and move on".

Noooo! Why can't FeMC exist in canon? Her very existence is why Shinjiro lives! She's so much more interesting than that blue haired bore!
I’ll escape now from this world, from the world of Jean Valjean, Jean Valjean is nothing now! Another story must begin!

^ "Blue haired bore"?! Akira Ishida would like to have a word with you. :tongue:

Anyway, I've barely paid attention to those P3/P4 spinoff games (including how/if they're canon) since I just want the next Persona game already. Might replay 'em while we wait for the P5 release. Though, if "Minato Arisato" is around in the side games...how, exactly? :cringe:

Seriously though FeMC IS much more interesting, she manages to have a lot more personality without actually saying anything.

MC was designed to be blank anyway hence why you give 'em a name, in these kind of games they set it up like that. However people are always so insistent on giving avatars personality in these kind of things...

Ok, that sorta makes sense, but still sounds a little silly. If I remember in the first Arena game (Zap and I played some of it), Elizabeth

was going on her journey (mentioned in P4) to help save him/break that Seal.

It was announced that February 4th-5th there will be a 30 hour live stream that will be purely persona related. I think most of it will be garbage filler, but I expect some good announcements out of it:

-Persona 3 Movie: Falling Down new trailer
-Persona 3 Movie 2 unboxing (same as last year with movie 1)
-Various persona related merchandise (clothing etc)
-Persona 4 Platinum on PS4 (watch it happen people, you heard it here first)
-Possibly a Vita port of Persona 3 FES
-A new trailer for P4 Dancing All Night
-And most importantly the first gameplay trailer for P5, I'm sure this will happen

So get your hopes up people and get ready to burn your dread!

Give me a release date, and I won't care too much about anything else.
Is the 3.0 spoiler policy gone?.... Cool, then I'm nominating myself as EvaGeeks 1# Sakura Suzuhara fan/nerd.

I mean, predictability is the central attraction and the narrative hook that we've all come to expect from the Evangelion franchise. How come Anno can't realize this? Twice? - FreakyFilmFan4ever

also judging by the enemies in the trailer guess we're back to fighting demons, was kind of hoping we'd stay away from that but oh well.

That was so crazy, it's like Persona meets Lupin III meets Jojo, I'm curious about the more "actionized" gameplay with these new elements of platform and stealth cover.

It has that jazz thief vibe (bebop meets darker than black), intro looked like sailor moon "tuxedo mask is that you" LOL! So I guess Mao is the new Teddie of this game :P

This Tuxedo Mask spinoff looks like it might actually be worth my time.

in all seriousness though. This looks amazing! The best of both Persona and Catherine! They're really taking a risk shaking up the persona formula this much though. . .
