What We Want To See In Persona 5

Catherine's development is pretty much done, and Persona 4 came out 3 years ago. This probably means one thing: Persona 5 is on the way. The Nightmare Mode staff sits down and talks about the things they'd like to see in the franchise, including an older setting, more flexibility in relationships, cameos and more. (3DS, Persona 3, Persona 4, Persona 5, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Who the hell cares?

What we want to see in Persona 5 is simple--a game called Persona 5. They can do whatever the hell they want, for whatever the hell platform they want, just give us something.

Though I'd be remiss if I didn't say that my ideal platform for Persona 5 would be the PS3: and a 3DS adaptation of Persona 4 would be most welcome. I'd like to keep the main Persona titles off handhelds, since Dragon Quest has already abandoned consoles for handhelds.

I think a great way to mix it up would be by making the cast a little older and giving them more adult problems to deal with in college.

The game has always been about social interaction, and I think that would freshen it up. New problems, but you still get the schedules and school atmosphere that set the tone for the series.

I'm glad the people who wrote this aren't in charge of P5's development. I understand where they're coming from in a lot of places, but I like a lot of the things they complain about. I have no idea how they think the relationships in Dragon Age 2 even compare to the ones in P3/4, let alone how they can even suggest that anything in that game comes close to the level of P3/4.

There are some possible changes that I agree with, it would be interesting to see older protagonists, and if they develop for the PS3/360 they should have enough room to make the option for a male or female protagonist like in P3P. In any case what will make P5 a great game are the elements that have already been established in the series over the years, not what they can do to make it "more like (insert overrated Western "RPG" here)".

If Atlus can keep a majority of the aspects that made P3/4 great while tweaking things to make it even better P5 will be another great game in the series. Hopefully they won't take a hint from BioWare or Obsidian but instead stay true to what makes the Persona games unique. Anyone who says otherwise should take a look at the situation SquareEnix and CAPCOM are in, not to mention the downward spiral BioWare seems to be on (at least in terms of creating a true RPG experience).
