It seems like the Investigation Team can’t catch a break. They solved a supernatural murder investigation, fought in two fighting tournaments and where even sent back in time. Now in Persona 4: Dancing All Night they find themselves defeating evil with the power of song and dance. Is this rhythm game a good look for Persona?
Finally, some more information for Persona 5 has finally been released. The new gameplay trailer shows off the new characters, the graphical and art style and the new gameplay features. The game seems to be borrowing characters and/or areas from Catherine too. The dungeon crawling aspects have been expanded, adding platforming mechanics and some special abilities. The day to day life gameplay is still present and social links are to be expected. Here’s hoping that Persona 5 comes sooner rather than later.
White Night is a new IP horror game that uses a film noir visual atheistic. Not much is shown of the gameplay but it’s nice to see a horror game that isn’t realistic or gritty looking.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 shows off gameplay of what seems to be apart of the story mode with Hashirama vs. Marada in the past. The battle shows off how flash the game is on the next gen consoles and it looks awesome.
I play a lot of video games and I have the bad habit of buying more games before finishing the ones I have. I decided to take a honest look at my uncompleted collection and had to shake my head a bit. One of my new year’s resolutions is to finish as many of these games as I can and try not to be so distracted by trophy hunting.
For those of you curious of what games these might be I’ve compiled some lists.
The next spin-off to the Person series isn’t another fighting game or a remake to the older games but it’s a new RPG. Reintroducing the full teams from Persona 3 and 4, we get a brand new dungeon crawling RPG adventure.
It still isn’t Persona 5 but we are getting the next but not the last Persona spin-off. Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is the fighting a squeal to the popular JRPG franchise. It continues the stories from Persona 3 and 4 and with the game remaining true to the character’s skills, Persona and abilities. Is Persona 4 Arena worthy for a second round?
Finally the long awaited Persona 5 has a trailer. Not much is shown in the trailer but it will be released on the PS3 and PS4 in 2015 for Japan and hopefully North America as well. As much as we all love Persona 3 and 4 we can finally work with a new cast of characters.
Atlus’s fan favorite Persona franchise is entering the realm of fighting games. Reuniting the cast of Persona 4 and four characters from Persona 3 they will have to compete in the P1 Grand Prix to find out the reason for the Midnight Channel’s return. With the game market becoming more saturated with fighting games each year does Persona 4 Arena stand up or should it stick with RPGs.
Catherine is developed by Atlus’s Persona Team know for the popular Persona JRPG series. Unlike Persona, Catherine is a puzzle game. You play as Vincent Brooks, a software developer in a long-term relationship with his girlfriend Katherine. You wake up in a nightmare climbing a collapsing tower. The next morning Vincent and Katherine discuss their relationship. Later than night after his friends leave the bar Vincent stays to reflect and meets a woman.

Upon waking up is in bed with the beautiful woman from the bar also named Catherine.
