A brief look at the upcoming HD title from Atlus for the PS3/360. This article includes screenshots and an accurate translation of the recent article posted on Famitsu gaming magazine's website.
It would be great if turns out to be a new MegaTen spinoff.
It's not. Persona 5 is on the way, and this game is a trial for Atlus's first game.
I love Persona's graphic style.
I wonder why they dont just show this awesome trailer. It is a definately much better interpretation than screens. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
One thing this suggest is that any and all Persona titles will be multiplatform. If this is a test for an HD game engine.
I believe Atlus will be using the PhyreEngine for Persona 5 which is a Sony made engine. "Or at least that's what Kagari over on neogaf is saying. Kagari is certainly reputable, but I'm not so sure about whichever blog she apparently sourced this from. For those not in the know, PhyreEngine is an engine created by Sony themselves, designed to take advantage of the ps3 and all it has to offer. --- "PhyreEngine is a graphics rendering engine provided under a license that allows it to be used by any PS3 game developers and publishers as well as Tools & Middleware licensees in their products. The engine uses sophisticated parallel processing techniques that are optimized for the Synergistic Processor Unit (SPU) of the Cell Broadband Engine™ of the PS3, but can be easily ported to other multi-core architectures. As a result, PhyreEngine has been newly-adopted by dozens of game studios in the last year, now appearing each month on the PlayStation®Store or on Blu-ray Discs." --- Numerous released and/or upcoming third party games have been released via this engine, such as Compile Heart's Super Dimensional Game Neptune and Gust's Atelier Totori and Mana Khemia 3. Word is Nippon Ichi are also using it for Disgaea 4, so Atlus licensing the engine as well wouldn't be a surpise. If Atlus is truly working with the PhyreEngine, I'd assume it has something to do with the recently announced Persona 5."
And it looks like they got it running on the 360 as well. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... It is a free engine. Just saying.
Well at the very least, you'll know the game will be on the PS3. Here I'm still hoping that it will go to the 360 since that's the only console I own.
I love the art style of this game. Same with Ni No Kuni. ^__^
made by atlus check made by the persona team check...which means game with story and plot check made by ATLUS everything leads to me purchasing it atlus you tease plesase announce smt p5 and many more smt's in return ill buy what ever you put out
um what is this game?? is this a dating simulation lol?
am sold.. <-- no sarcasm btw
you should own a playstation systems if you like these kinds of titles. Im tired of people buying the cheapest weakest system and not buying the systen with the type of games they like. 3 exclusive tales games, ni no kumi ps3, ff vs 13, persona 5, tons of random exclusive jrpgs on the way and the ones on the x360 come to the ps3 with more content. buy a ps3 and quit being a buster is what im saying. Holding out and making a company split resources to make there game multiplat is a punk move. Also its a waste of money to make all there games multiplat just based on how much they sale. they are niche and 10-20k on the x360 isnt worth it compared to what they sale on the ps3. People are just lucky that this particular game isnt an jrpg. Which is a big reason its multiplat. We still dont have american release info and as long as they got english subtitle ps3 owners could import it because ps3 is region free.
I don’t think Sony is bothered by niche games like this going to the 360 because it's not a system seller. But on the other hand series like MegaTen and Tales need to go multiplatform for their own good because they still need to grow. And using the PhyerEngin means their won't be much cost to porting it.
well we can say almost good by to dual voice because that other system doesn't have enough space ..not to be a troll but i dislike Us dubs VERY MUCH and atlus will most likely dub it like the previous persona titles ( even if this isn't technically a persona title by the way )
Persona 3&4 dubs were OK, it's not like 90s anime dubs, but I won't have a problem with just a translation like Yakuza 3. Of topic: every time I think about Persona a voice echoes in my hed"PERSONA PERSONA SHOW ME YOUR PERSONA", it's been like that since the PS1 days.
Atlus has been good when it comes to VA, so I'm not all that worried about it. I'm more excited at the fact that they are moving onto more HD style games, and not only that, but the first game is an adult oriented one at that, though that's not to say the SMT/Persona series weren't already M rated enough as is. :p
i always liked the atmosphere they had in the persona franchise~ i really wish they'd make a game like shenmue that had a "slice of life" element to its gameplay.
It looks really interesting. It looks different for a start, and that's always good in my book. But what are the gameplay mechanics? 'Cos if it's a sort of update on the whole point 'n' click adventure thang, akin somewhat to Heavy Rain, then I will be following this game very closely. Suppose us westerners will have to wait aeons for it to come out over here though.
