Cool, I'll have to boot my PS3 up to see if they're free. Thanks!

Edit: They must have released the maid/butler set months ago, because I already had it (and that means it was free). The Christmas set was indeed free for PS3 as well. Sadly, in the save I'm working on, I don't think I'll have access to my room again to actually retrieve it, but I made some save scum slots in case I wanted to go back and fish or whatever for those trophies (lol, like that will happen).

I find it curious that Morgana is always described as male, but can wear the maid outfit.

Not trying to crossdressing cat shame here or anything, just saying.

In Japan, Morgana's gender in the artbook is literally "???" so I think the explicitly male thing is English only? Especially since Mona/Morgana are female names. I don't get it either.

And um, what is Yusuke eating in that avatar?

Hmm, saw an Atlus USA tweet about the 2 Devil Survivor remakes being on sale, along with Soul Hackers. I was excited because Soul Hackers is on my to-play list (already have the other games) but those games weren't actually listed under the sale category in the eshop, and when I manually searched for them, they were all $20 (I only paid $10 for the remake of Devil Survivor 1 like, well over a year or 2 ago) so it's either not much of a sale, or it hasn't kicked in yet on my end (No one is complaining in the thread or listing prices, so who knows). I'm used to the on-sale games showing the normal price with a slash through them, and then the sale price beneath it, and that wasn't the case for any of these games yet, so I guess I'll check again later.

I happened to be up so I watched what I could of the Persona livestream. Apparently, dispite missing the first hour, I missed nothing other than the P5 Protagonist's anime name reveal (which is probably what they'll use in the dancing game as well); Ren Amamiya.

The last part had the good stuff. Finally got some shots of alternative outfits for the dancing games as well as characters that weren't shown before. People are upset because Goro wasn't in the trailer even though his voice actor was doing the stream. Come on, guys, he'll be in the game. He was the most popular character in a Japanese P5 poll, after all. They're just waiting.

As far as P3:D goes, no Strega, but I wasn't expecting to see them either this early, even if they will be in the game. We also didn't see femc, Shinji, or Koromaru. Hell, no Elizabeth either, even though we had Margaret in the P4 game and the velvet twins were shown in the P5:D trailer, so my guess is they're waiting to reveal her. Elizabeth's pretty popular so it'd be stupid not in include her.

Rewatched the trailers properly with headphones this time. Omg, the p3 game has a remix of the final battle music which I can already tell you will be my new jam. And, while Elizabeth isn't in the trailer, she's in the background of the key visual poster, so yay. Gotta say after watching them both again that they've done a way better job with the p3 one so far, in terms of both music and alternate costumes. That said, Yusuke in a suit with glasses...

Also, people have pointed out that the song the p3 trailer opens with is a remix of a femc-only route track. I think that's a hint that she'll be coming later, and I bet she'll be dancing with Shinji.

Anyone dancing with Shinji needs to be doing it with a third character, and Shinji in the middle, a la Weekend at Bernies.

All jokes aside I hope the new dancing costumes find their way into Persona 5 eventually, even if it's not until the inevitable double-dip release.

Futaba has a canon birthday now and apparently was born today in 2002. Thor, I feel old.

Always struck me a bit odd that a game which breaks down its time with a calendar and also has a bunch of characters you can spend time with never actually deals with birthdays in the game itself.

Yeah, I thought it was fake when I first saw these because of the Sonic one. Very bizarre choice, given the theme for the rest of them. I like the other outfits, though, even though I'm not familiar with the games. Everyone is thirsting over Yusuke again XD

I might be the only person that cares about the dancing games, but a Chinese version was announced for September. This leads me to believe that other language/region versions will hopefully be announced soon, and hopefully around roughly the same time (I guess it depends on if they do voice acting or not- the Chinese version apparently will still have the Japanese voices, and a very recent interview with Ren's voice actor indicated that no localization (at least in terms of voice audio) has started yet in English). I'm fine with JP voices and subs, honestly, but I know a lot of people would bitch.

There was also a recent article, mostly about the dance games, simply confirming that PQ2 wasn't forgotten and is very much underway, and that P6 is also being worked on. No hard info or screenies, though.

We're getting the dancing game localizations after all. I was a little worried because they apparently sold poorly in Japan during the first week, and I assumed the localization would be based on sales. If they're doing it anyway with shit sales, why wait until after release to start working on it? Anyway, whatever, glad we're getting them. And the early 2019 release means I can move this summer without spending too much money on those, heh.

Edit: Didn't notice until later that the Vita is digital only for the non-JP releases. I predicted that, actually, based on the news of Vita carts dying and the fact that the US only got special edition content for the PS4 and not PS3 with Persona 5, even though Japan got both. I *really* wanted the Vita versions because I feel a dancing game works better in a handheld format for me, but I guess I'll have to see how enticing the special edition/pre-order bonuses are for us. I feel like the Vita will be bare bones- just the game, not even a pre-order bonus or free DLC, but we'll see. Will the PS4 bonuses be good enough for me to willingly embarrass myself in front of my boyfriend while playing?
