Well this looks fairly interesting for the PV. The part with the skating was pretty stylish Very Happy

Those are by far the best menus I've seen in a video game. Also, it's nice to seem them actually improving the game play system outside of combat.

Well, It's pretty cool to finally get a look into what P5 will be like. I like the new character designs, and being able to lay as a thief sounds pretty interesting.

Finally we see a little bit of game footage, and it looks awesome. The return of Igor is always great. I just hope those old recordings can make something special.

Wow. This is looking nice. It's looking like they're making some significant changes to the gameplay which is cool. Music is great too. Smile

I just wonder how different the PS3/PS4 versions will be. I hope they don't differ too much, as I don't really fancy buying a PS4 just yet.

I see they've learned quite a bit from Catherine judging from some of the locales like the bar. Surprised

And I assume there's going to be more playable characters to join the MC's phantom thief group.

I never played a Persona game before but I really enjoyed Catherine and this trailer was cool. Looking forward to trying this out when it hits the PS4.

Love the "Catherine"-style visuals, and I really like the anti-hero vibe I'm getting from those characters. It doesn't look like Social Links are back, but if the game is as good as it looks, I don't think I'll miss them.

Eh there were a couple of high school bits in there so I don't think that mechanic's going anywhere

There were also "high school bits" in the PS1 "Persona" games, and those definitely didn't have social links.

I noticed one of the menu options was "Cooperation," so perhaps that could be similar to S.Links, but I still feel the system as it appeared in the last two games is gone. I guess we'll just have to wait to find out.

Yeah, at first glance it actually looked like Vincent Brooks was the one locked up in the trailer. Also, I don't think we've been given enough information to say whether the social links are there. Social Links were a very popular aspect of P3 and P4, so I'd be inclined to think that the mechanic will return in some form.

They probably want to give you a reason to watch later trailers. Stringing along announcements like characters and gameplay is pretty standard.
