There's also the possibility of changing that. I mean, we are talking about the company that made Mark into a black kid with a yellow baseball cap. The release of DQ8 was substantially altered as well; going so far as altering the main character in battle in certain situations. It's not out of the realm of possibility.


Sprite alterations are one thing, editing entire animated sequences is another.  I do agree though...Megaten is under the radar and there are other titles with grim content.  Hopefully those guns-to-the-head-shots won't hinder a localization.  I am concerned about the apparent lack of demon negotiations......guns:

Well, for example, within Dragon Quest VIII, the model for the main character when he's fully psyched up is different from the one in Japan. Nintendo itself has changed things such as the fairies in Ocarina of Time between the continents... Atlus is obviously smaller, but I would think that if they were really interested in pushing Megaten related games in the West, they'd either go with it or work with Atlus of Japan for a compromise. I hope, anyway. updown

Oh man. I love it. But that's a strange way to summon...
I think it's too suicidical to be released in europe, or america.
I want that game right now! I'll keep praying atlus usa will release it too.

Those examples aren't too tied to storyline and are quite minor compared to editing entire cutscenes -- I was referring to the long sequences depicted in the 17 min Persona 3 movie, not just small battle animations.

To be honest, I didn't think most of them were that bad in comparison to things out there in both games and anime... most of which haven't really made a major splash in terms of parental/political uprisings. GTA largely only mattered because it sold millions upon millions of copies; same as other titles they rely on like Doom. In terms of the level of this stuff, I suppose it depends on one's perspective. We'll see, I guess.

I am not disagreeing with you at all.  My point is that the edits you are speaking of are minor compared to something that may be a large component of the story.

Oh no, I'm not disagreeing with you either. I'm just talking/discussing/blabbing, really lol. We'll see what happens... My thought on the whole gun thing was largely that it was just supposed to symbolize the "death" of one mask/Persona to give way for another. Maybe something to that effect wouldn't be looked down upon by outside groups as much as right out suicide? Don't ask me lol.

My main point, I guess, is that I'm not really in the habit of playing imports and I don't want to start with this title. I hope it comes here in some form. :)

That is my thought as well.

The official site is now up for those interested. It has screens, character information and other such things in Japanese. There's also a wallpaper for download.

It would be nice, although they mark all of these as "expected". I guess Famitsu is pretty much the best source you'll get on something like this, though.

Not much longer to wait for E3 :). Wish I was able to go this year.

Ah, and for the record:

Mitsuru's Persona is Penthesilea, Akihiko's Persona is Polydeuces, and Fuuka's is Lucia, which I assume refers to the Saint Lucia (notice in Lucia's artwork she has bandages on her throat and over her eyes...).
Speculation:
[SPOILER]In any case, this does not bode well for Fuuka, since Saint Lucia was sentenced to be raped in a whorehouse (although obviously it didn't happen), had her throat slit and her eyes gouged out. Coupled with the fact that she's not a combat character... yeah, I don't think Fuuka's gonna make it through the whole game.[/SPOILER]

I came across these names on a Japanese fan site that I stumbled across the other day (trying to find information on a voice actor). I e-mailed the owner about using the information (seems to know English rather well), but I've not heard anything back yet.

Is this actually on the character profile pages? I don't know Japanese, so basically I'm stuck using a program and two or three web-based translators to make any sense out of these things I wind up putting on the site lol.
