Forget that Japanifornia comic and look at this; the artist clearly knows what’s up.
Some Famitsu Leaks For P4U2
Okay this week’s Famitsu leaks are coming in really early, though much information is still missing.
For P4U2, the release date has been confirmed to be sometime in August and will be priced at 6XX0 Japanese yen.
And yes, Rise is confirmed to be joining the roster. Battle style seems to be in the style of “LISTEN TO MY SONG.” (???) Seriously though, if she’s beating people up with a microphone and its stand to do battle, that will be all sorts of hilarious and awesome.
Every character from Persona 3 and 4 will have their individual story being told in the Story Mode.
There is a new mode called “XX Arena Mode”, in which apparently your characters growth is tightly linked to your social link with the voice navigator (so Rise is joining the roster and still acting as Voice Navigator, okay….).
Again, all these are really just hazy leaks for those of you who want all your leaks and rumours first hand. I’m sure come tomorrow, there will be more as well as clearer information about what all these mean.
New Ace Attorney 3DS game unveiled ⊟
According to this Famitsu scan posted by @Lite_Agent, this new game takes place during Japan’s Meiji period (1868 - 1912, a.k.a. Rurouni Kenshin times) and naturally features a new star — it looks like that star is an ancestor of Phoenix Wright?
The full title, according to @CourtRecords_, is Dai Gyakuten Saiban - Naruhodou Ryuunosuke no Bouken, or Grand Turnabout Trial - The Adventures of Naruhodou Ryuunosuke. As mentioned previously, Ace Attorney creator Shu Takumi is once again heading the project, after taking a break from the series with Dual Destinies.
My inner translator awaits with bated breath as to how Capcom USA is gonna make this take place in NOT JAPAN again, should they choose to localize it. Totally understand as a writer myself why they made that decision with the initial games, but from what I hear about how 5 turned out, that decision is increasingly biting it in the ass.
Still super interested regardless! Definitely a hell of a tangent to go on settings-wise!
