I am pretty excited about the fighting game. The remake on Vita is kinda cool, though I'm not sure if I want to get one so soon. I'm rarely an early adopter. But if any company could make me, it'd be Atlus. I'll admit I'm an Atlus fanboy.
Also from this shot it looks like there's going to be some customization, including your persona. Dunno if that means you can actually change your persona for gameplay changes, or if it's all just aesthetic.
Spoiler for big pic:
Also if these weren't compressed into jpegs I would have totally made a new avatar right now.
It really does. And like I predicted MC is Sol Badguy.
Is it just me is is the Persona mechanic look like the inspiration behind Relius Clovers gameplay? Every character looks like a variation of his play style. Looks like there are status effects too, which is concerning.
You really only ever need to use Protag/Yosuke/Chie/Yukiko.
They are the most balanced and useful team. Kanji is only good for dungeon crawling, he's shit against bosses. Not as good to use as Chie because Chie gets Power Charge. Teddie would be useful but because he suffers from the same problem as Yukiko and Yukiko is jsut a straight up better healer I'd rather deal with her weakness. And by the time I got Naota, I just didn't care to use her.
I used Yosuke/Teddy/Yukiko, I must have just plain sucked at P4 because I just couldn't get very far without obscene amounts of grinding if I used anyone else. Teddy and Yukiko, both being group healers, were absolute staples, and between Yosuke, Kanji, Chie and Naoto, Yosuke was by far the best 3rd member for a lot of reasons.
Funny thing is, my ideal team would have been Chie/Kanji/Naoto.
Haha, really i only need Protag and Yukiko to be my healers. Chie deals massive amounts of physical damage and Yosuke can basically do decent phys damage and great wind damage. If I was going to have Teddy/Yukiko I'd just make it so all teddy knew was Mediahan or whatever. I grind purely so I can make stronger personas.
Which if you have a good set of personas on your Protag the game is not that hard. There's only a few annoying bosses. Though I'm about to face Izanami at leve 93 because I WANTED LUCIFER DAMNIT. Satan/Bezelbub/Helial/Lucifer. TEAM DEVIL GO. (That is also because those four personas are retard good) + Scathath/Kohryu/Asura/??? = I LITERALLY HAVE 0 WEAKNESSES. Seriously, only Phys and Lightning hurt me on Beezelbub, Helial is uh invicible, Lucifer has his checked, Satan Absorbs Wind now, Scahath is good, Kohryu has no weaknesses in the first place, and Asura was checked. If you kinda sit there and do as many combos you get to see how to make yourself basically invincible and that's how you play Persona really. You play it so you have invincible Protag + one good healer + One bruiser + One magician = win everytime
I wanted to play as MC but just from the little gameplay footage we have now he looks to play a lot like Rangna the Badguy and I've never been to fond of that play style.
I'll wait to see if they announce a gimmicky character, those are the ones I always end up gravitating towards.
Also, I used MC/ Yosuke/ Teddy/ Yukiko and I never had any problems with just Yukiko as the healer. I always thought P4 was one of the easier and less grindy JRPG's out there. I mean yeah you have to grind sometimes but it is certainly a lot more lenient than most other titles.
I think I'll have an easier time playing P4 if and when I get that Vita port, I have very little patience for grinding when I play on anything but a portable system.
Was P3 significantly easier or something? There was not a single fight in that game that seriously challenged me.
But P4, on Normal, same difficulty as P3, at least 3/4 bosses required multiple attempts to beat, and everything after the Secret Base required a lot of grinding.
It sounds liek you're just bad at P4 to be honest.
I was thinking of throwing Teddy into my team but it's a little late for that. He's 30 levels behind my team and everyone's at 90 so meh. I think there was maybe 2 bosses I had to do multiple attempts on just because I didn't have the right personas on hand. Gotta have the right mix.
Fox you're just going to play Teddy and you know it. Teddy is totally going to be gimmicky if he's playable.
