Hey, is anyone else excited about the first Persona game on the 3DS? Mind you it isn't a "normal" Persona game, and in fact sounds more like an Etrian Odyssey type game in the Persona world, but that could be neat. It releases next week in North America and has been getting great review scores so far (around 87% on GR at the moment.)
I might try to knock Persona 3 out first though since it uses characters from 3 and 4.
Has anybody here played Catherine? I am getting a wonderful Catherine vibe from the second labyrinth. Also, there was a fun Catherine nod during the first "full group" group cutscene. I love this stuff!
@Koovaps Haha! The game leans a lot on you knowing the characters and their situations, so I'm curious how you feel about it when it's said and done.
@VofEscaflowne To be fair, P3P came out first, but the character was thrown in there for fun (talking about his nightmares and everything) during Catherine's production. Anyway, I should get back to Q!
Made it to the third labyrinth yesterday and it's definitely the best so far. Interesting theme and pretty funny from the beginning. Can't wait to get even deeper in it!
Are not many people giving this game a shot? I wonder how popular it is... but it's one game where it would definitely benefit from having played the others in the series. Not necessary story wise but a lot of the game is based on the characters and the games they're from. There actually hasn't been many story elements so far...
I know this might not be the place for this, but I am playing Persona 3 FES for the first time as a ps2 download on ps3. The game is fantastic. I have played P4G on vita two years ago and simply loved the game. I wanted to get Persona Q but I want to play P3 first so I can understand those characters and get more out of that game. With the way atlus games go on sale, hopefully I can get this for cheap sometime next summer.
I haven't had a chance to beat the second labyrinth yet! My Smash addiction is in full swing since everyone seems to be playing online lately. I need to get back to it! I will beat the second labyrinth today. I WILLLLLLL.
@Scrawnton That's the best way to approach Persona Q, in my opinion. Plus, Persona 3 is pretty darn good. The "FES" part is a little too dungeon-crawly, but that's post-game stuff anyway.
I'm on the third floor of the second labyrinth, I think?
There are still a few things I don't get about the game. For example, both navigators seem to be capable of casting Diarama, but I have no idea how. They're not really in the party, it's not a "leader skill" in combat, and I don't think I can select their skills in the menu… actually now that I type this, I'm not sure I've tried.
You can also assign them their own sub Personas? What purpose does that serve?
@Guillaume Personas can learn support skills (the ones with the little symbol next to them), such as "fewer chance of enemy attack within a P-Spot" or "Escape battle and return to labyrinth entrance." Assign a Persona with support skills as a sub-persona to whomever you have for support, and they'll have those abilities. For example, I have Fuuka as my battle support, so I make sure she has the battle support skills like healing and such. Rise is my support during navigation, so she has the passive skills (like "fewer attacks from monsters in a labyrinth") assigned to her.
EDIT - To use the "regular" skills of your navigators outside of battle (Diarama for example), just highlight your leader and click the "R" button.
