Side note, who the heck is that to the left of Naoto. Looks like Adachi to me......which would be an interesting choice.

He's been a confirmed character since a good while.

Looked it up and yeah he's apparently he's a DLC character. Totally going to buy that.

Basically this guy was the original persona user, but they didn't have the gun things back then and had to use swords instead. Hence the scars. Guns don't leave scars like swords do, you know?

Sweet news, get first prints of Persona Q and Persona 4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold and you'll have a complete set of the major arcana from Persona! (half of them coming with each title) Finally they are making these cards. I wish they were selling a single deck that included the minor arcana as well (so that I could use them as a card deck), but I'll take the best designed major arcana that I have ever seen (not that I have seen a lot).

...But it is Yu, how is he the original Persona user?

Essentially, DDS and Nocturne are straight cosmic horror done very well, while Shadow Hearts is a cosmic horror that eventually develops a bizarre and insane sense of humor. There's nothing else quite like it.

I had to return to this thread to re-quote you, Sir Zen, from a little over a month ago to appropriately (and publicly) thank you (as well as the community members who chimed in) SOOO much for the suggestion of Shadow Hearts.

I got to it finally last week and put in a solid 10 hours or so and I freakin' adore it.

The reason I found it appropriate to bring up here is because I am pretty floored by how much it reminds of an SMT game. I can't honestly say I've never played anything that felt so similar to Persona/SMT without it actually being a part of the franchise.

That is all. Carry on.

You kidding? I'm buying Persona Q and Ultimax at launch to get the full set. I don't own a 3DS.

Personally, not interested without the minors as well. You can't do a proper tarot reading with only the major arcana.

Well, I'm not interest in attempting to perform tarot readings.  I'll treat the cards like collectibles and keep them in one of my spare card cases. 

Anyhow, do we have any new word on SMT X FE at all?  I'm still curious whether it's going to draw Atlus characters from DDS, Persona, or other SMT umbrella games or just the core SMT series.  All I can find after a quick search is an E3 blurb saying "we're still working on it; please wait patiently."  Right.  Thanks.

I do tarot readings, so yeah. :P I have two decks, no less. Major only tells half the tale, a broad spectrum
There was an interview with IntSys where they confirmed it's on schedule.

Yep. That's all we got.

At least it gives me something to look forward to for TGS or a future Nintendo Direct.

I assumed the worst when I heard Atlus was going to start doing DLC, and I was rewarded for my pessimism.

Personas as DLC. >:(

Meh? It isn't like that is anything essential.

"Thanatos is a level 70 Sub Persona with Gate to Hades, a skill that hits every enemy with almighty damage and has a high chance for an instant kill each round for three rounds. That sounds really powerful."

"Magatsu Izanagi is a level 92 Sub Persona with Calamity Seed as a skill, an attack that hits all enemies with heavy slash damage for three turns."

Maybe they're not "essential", but they sure sound useful. The P in Persona seems to stand for "Pay to win" now. :/

Also, Persona Q is also going to be $50 in the U.S., just like SMT IV. Which means it's going to be $55 in Canada, because we're getting fucked on game prices since Nintendo, Sony and MS all decided to arbitrarily raise game prices at once and 3DS games are $5 more now. With tax, that's going to out PQ at over $60. Atlus is high if they think I'm going to be paying that for a 3DS game.
