Persona 5: A fan's hopes and dreams

Steven Hansen talks a bit about what he'd like to see in Persona 5. Not so secretly, the answer is a game starring Persona 3's Mitsuru Kirijo, but he's a bit more realistic in the article.

Persona 5 is my dream. Just getting to hold the game would be the best thing ever for me. XD

ditto, i would make a shrine out of it.

After playing Persona 4 Arena I really don't think the next Persona should be based around Mitsuru like this guy wants.(even though he is mostly joking about it)

Persona 4 Arena clearly hints at a bigger storyline surrounding Mitsuru and the Shadow Operatives but I honestly think that should be a spin off and that Persona 5 should continue with a new cast and new story. Maybe one that vaugely ties in with the other games but not one that is a direct sequel or something.

That said making it star a slightly older cast like one in a university is certainly something I was thinking would be interesting. I mean honestly at the end of the day it really doesn't matter how old the characters are as teh story in something like Cathrine was clearly meant to be different then Persona and Persona 3 and 4 were very mature in their own way but still it would certainly be interesting to see a university setting.

I basically just want a Persona 5 that doesn't try to radically mess with the P3 and P4 formula. I want basically the same stuff but just bigger, badder and better. Which I clearly think they are capable of doing.

Are these shadow operatives good or bad?

They are the good guys. It's a group Mitsuru forms to help combat the shadows after the events of Persona 3

All I hope is that the Social Link will be on the same forgiving style as Persona 4 where you actually have almost a full month to fix your mistakes..In Persona 3, you'll definitely need a guide to get max social unforgiving...

I didn't have a problem with P3's social links. It's really just a matter of just saying something they would like to hear and hanging out with them on the side.

I honestly don't know what I'd like in P5. From P3 to P4 it was being able to control individual characters and the being able to access the world map from anywhere was nice, even though I never used it.

I think I'd want them to have a deep emotional story like P3 but the dark theme of P4. Maybe some minigames too, just to break the cycle of Social Links, dungeons, studying, or going to places to increase charm or intelligence.

Lovable2784d ago

I think you got it backwards...P4 was emotional and P3 was darker one..nonetheless both actually handles those two themes in great extent.

I'd love if we had more SS candidates for any arcana instead of just one. I'd give the game more replayability just like P3P FES.

Variety in dungeon design would be cool too!!

Love the Persona series.

I really wish they would have had at least one on the new systems.
