I'm not too crazy about his character designs either. I also agree with the hearts on the boobs, they're lame.

Would you say that if a hot girl was all over you and she was wearing that? Or you would you politely decline and say "I'm sorry, the hearts on your outfit are too lame for me."

What does that have to do with anything.

Anyway, I did like the characters in nocturne a lot, wasn't thinking about those.

My favorite Urara quote is "The goodness of a woman isn't in her bra." 

The pectoral hearts on Maya's outfit are a fashion risk, but I've seen worse fashion risks in RPG characters.  I'd rather have her wear that than any given Tetsuya Nomura outfit.

Awesome, bringing over the P2 we have never seen. EP 'should' be a guarantee follow up. At least I hope so, will not purchase this one unless I can get both, I want the full story.

But you CAN get the full story, we did get Eternal Punishment.

I don't understand what you are saying.

 I don't have EP, and am not going to get it at the prices listed online for it. Besides, would be nice to see EP get the remake treatment as well.

And some stuff from your final IS save carries over into EP.  Of course, that was dummied out of the original US version since we didn't get EP.  And EP would need a retweaked localization since the original script made allowances for the goofball changes in Revelations: Persona.  For example, EP made references to Lunarvale (Mikage City in P1) and used hybrid names for carryover characters (i.e. Nate Nanjo, Mary Sonomura, Guido Kandori- an extra allowance was made for his name originally being Guido Sardenia).

If they do EP for the PSP (prays), hope they really do the carrying your save over from IS.

To Starmongoose, it is going for $80+ on ebay.

Man, I've got to get a fucking PSP.  There's been way too much interesting shit coming out on it lately.

And yes, Maya does indeed look like an idiot with those hearts.  It's a good thing she's largely mute in EP, because anyone who would wear something like that would probably annoy the shit out of me with their words too. :P

That's why I had trouble accepting her as a mute protagonist in EP.  She's very talkative in IS being a reporter and a very sociable, outgoing type of woman.  Tatsuya made sense as a silent protagonist since he's a very private person. 

I <3 Maya, though.  When I played EP I was working in publishing at the time and could relate to her professionally.  Plus, she and I shared a lot of personality traits.  If that didn't beat all, she looked like an amalgamation of women I'd known over the years.

References to Revelations aside, EP still had a great localization.

And just why were those bad? They were trying to maintain continuity, even if a dumb localization makes things a little strange. Thankfully not an issue this time, but they did the best they could.
