Nintendo is rocking Playable Women

image

So Nintendo is creating a vast array of playable females in their upcoming exclusive games. The majority of games that do not are general neutral games such as Kirby, Yoshi, and Art Academy. Let’s start with a list of Wii U games Nintendo is publishing with playable females.  Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 2, Splatoon, Devil’s Third, Mario Party 10, Xenoblade Chronicles X, SMT X Fire Emblem, Wii Sports Club, Smash Bros, and Sonic Boom.  This doesn’t include Indie games, unannounced titles, and more. That’s 10 exclusive titles to bring in the women. 3ds games 6 of the 6 first of second party games have playable female characters, even more 3rd party have playable females. That’s right all of them do, Nintendo is really doing what everyone should be doing, giving people the right to chose. Game characters are Avatars for the players to delve themselves into so it’s only natural to have playable women. In a world where women are apparently not a priority in games Nintendo is standing tall.

 If Nintendo is smart they should seize the moment by using this for a marketing campaign. It doesn’t need to be targeted at little girls, just go foot forward and say “Check out out bad ass ladies who kick ass.” They have Nintendo girls club to grab young girls but lets grab the females in gaming and let them know what company has their back. Id love to see a Tumblr campaign or exclusive interviews with places like the Mary Sue. Nintendo could really size the moment and really use what they are already doing. For Nintendo a lot of things seem to just happen naturally so I’m sure that’s what they are banking on but still id like to see them take a look and use it. 

It’s just exciting because while it times it seems like the industry is taking steps backgrounds in handling women Nintendo seems to be actually making games. By that I mean I think it’s hardly even a though for most NIntendo developers to add women, or men for that matter. I think Hyrule Warriors roster is has been picking the characters that make the most sense from each game. I don’t think they are calculation the amount of money it will take to make a female Robin but instead saying “It’s what the character is.” That’s how making games should be, women should be in games because women are fucking 51% of the population. Female characters should exist and do exist so Nintendo uses them. Will all of Nintendo’s female characters be the pinnacle of female empowerment, most likely not. However, what they are already showing off is a load of female characters that feel like characters. 

Some people may argue, why does sex matter, isn’t it about how fun games are? Id say it is about how fun games are but why can’t they add women? Why aren’t companies like Ubisoft spending money to bring in women? I’d say we will never know but what I do know is Nintendo is bring fun and women into gaming. I don’t have a loyalty to any company, every company is about money, but Nintendo comes damn near close having my love.Nintendo fucks up, all the time, however, it still feels like the gamers matter to Nintendo. Regardless of any factor Nintendo wants to create fun games and Nintendo is doing a lot right for consumer rights.  It has a lot of flows but when I was doing research for this I was proud I chose the Wii U. Anyway that’s all, id love to chat about this more so you can hit up my ask box. 

PokeBillioair

So recently License! Global estimated that the Pokemon Company generates 1.5 billion dollars a year. This is more money then freaking Sony Pictures makes as a whole. It’s no surprise that i’m a massive Pokemon fan but it does drive home the point I made a while back during the Pokebank debates of old. They don’t need to milk fans, we don’t need Pokebank, we don’t need DLC, we don’t need anything outside of games for the games. Us Pokemon fans give the Pokemon company 1.5 billion dollars a year, that’s not all games, in fact that’s mostly not games. A ton comes from the toys, show, cards, and everything else Pokemon related we consume. The high amount of hype just to have the Pokemon Center store back for the west is insane so we are actually begging for more ways to give Pokemon our money. We really don’t need the Pokemon company to be like “Nah no move tutor in XY so we can sell Omega Ruby Alpha Sapphire to competitive players. ” These little things that game freak does to sell us games, I don’t think they are needed anymore. I mean hell we don’t need two versions of the same game ether. Tradition is cool and all but id like to just have all the content each generation has to offer in one package. I don’t mind the game split because it is how Pokemon has worked. Regardless i’m glad Pokemon is such a big thing in the world since it’s a world I love.

Shovel Knight (Wii U) Review

image

Me and my brother played Shovel Knight together with the classic, if you die I take the remote experience but I did let him take the reigns during the last act since he is the one who bought the game. After 7 hours and 11 minutes (Inside of two days) we took down the games main story. However, right away once my brother let go of the gamepad I started to play my own file. The games levels just called for me to play more and the play the things I didn’t get to enjoy when playing with my brother. The experience was just as good this second time even though I knew the locations of the many secrets and the surprises behind each stage.  

image

In a game like this normally I wouldn’t talk about story or anything like that but for this game I think it’s worth mentioning. The story is simple but something about the art style, the music, everything just makes you feel what the game wants you to feel. The story to save Shield Knight after she boldly was lost at the tower of fate actually had me wanting to see my wonderful partner from a forgotten life in the flesh. The dream scenes really effect me, I really wanted to save her inside them. Id say more but I dare not spoil it. 

image

The bosses themselves have fun dialogue that seems to build on the lore of the world while not forcing it’s self on you. It was nice fun looks at these knights and having the NPCs tell you of the woes the order of no quarter have taken onto them also makes finishing them an even better accomplishment. Beyond that eventually the three shown above will eventually be playable for story mode (I think if they did a revote now that the game is out we may see a few changes on who would be playable).  Regardless all the Knights were fun and the wondering warriors were also pretty fun to fight against. 

image

The game it’s self works so well, losing money when dying is the perfect way to make death suck without making it suck. I wanted all that treasure up until near the very end of the game where I had bought everything I needed or wanted. Even then dying still sucks because looking at the money count go down was just sad. The way Shovel Knight battles and travels around is so perfect. While it appears to be borrowing elements really it’s grabbing them and using them in new ways, giving upgrades, and in a lot of ways expanding on the games it’s inspired by. The music gets you pumped with very few tracks I thought were good but not great. Then all the artifacts just felt great to use and the way they were implemented was fantastic. Maybe a few were less useful then others but each at least helped out in one part of the game. 

image

These is a title that shocked me that I loved it so much. I’m not into most indie platformers that wax on about their artistic feats, I’m not really into games that boast how they are so hard. This game may look like that to the untrained eye but in reality this game is a game. I mean that in the best possible way, this game is just really a fun video game. Yes it does so many great things but it does it in a way where it made me have real fun. Sure parts got hard but eventually I overcame the elements. This game doesn’t run on nostagia, it doesn’t go “Remember when games did?”, what it did was bring a natural organic feel that felt like I just uncovered an amazing GBA title or something. This feels like it could have been like a full retail 3ds release almost. It might have needed just a bit more content and obviously I loved it being on Wii U but this game isn’t good for an indie game but a game as a whole. This game is fantastic and has very little flaws. I’ll nail my nitpicks after this but I end the real part of the review here, 9/10, amazing game, buy it if you got that cash. 

image

So now that positive Sergio is dead long live the ass hole. I would have liked if the game had all the extra characters at launch, while the game sent me right back into the fray I would have loved the to have been able to change it up. Id also loved to have had the battle arena mode to mix things up for a moment. I think while the lighting in the dark was interesting it was more annoying then cool. Knowing that only the three knights that were voted on are going to be playable is a bit of a let down because now id like to play as them all. I know battle arena will have them all but id love to venture off as each knight, side boss, and more. More or less the game left me wanting even more but that might just be a sign of how great the game was that i’m already starving for more content.  The last stage also really made me want a two player co-op mode in the next title if they so chose to make a sequel to the game. 

New details on Bayonetta 2’s Tag Climax mode

image

Tag Climax mode is the mode in Bayonetta 2 that allows for online Co-op. Players are able to invite friends to come and kill some angels. In addition to that we now know that you can get paired with random people online (with is super rare for a Nintendo game) and also CPU players. A quick note on this screen shot you see Bayonetta is player 2 not player one so it’s not locked by player. I think it’s already been said but we will actually have several playable options. 

image

In these matches vs players you can pet Halos against them to show off how cocky you are in outdoing them. This adds a nice competitive element to the game since Halo’s can be used to buy a slew of things in game. The stages are on Verse cards with can increase in difficulty by betting more Halos putting a minimum bet for harder modes pretty high. While people might be worried seeing that we only have 6 card slots I do want to make clear that on the top it says 9/52 with a picture of verse cards and No. 40 on the bottom. So we will likely have 52 challenges then if difficulty levels don’t count as Verse cards that could at least double the amount of time  you could get out of this mode. 

image

We have a few more details we need to get about this mode but over all i’m really excited to play this with friends who buy the game. Id like to see alt outfits for characters, see if it mixes it up in these stages, see if buying the weapons and other things are different in his mode. Bayonetta 2 seems like a style from some many angles it’s crazy. I kinda wish co-op existed in the main story even if it didn’t effect the story just so I could play it with my awesome friends like my Bayonetta loving friend Tracy. Still I’m sure i’ll get hours from this mode ontop of my at least one new run of Bayonetta 1 and at least one run of Bayonetta 2.

Hyrule Warriors Scans Analysis and thoughts

So the new scans for Hyrule Warriors are out so I figured id do that looking at things and finding answers thing. I’m doing this before an official translation is out or even light ones just going off the raw scans though i’m searching for translations as I write. 

I freaking love Sheik’s design she looks fantastic in this game. She uses a harp as the main weapon with the daggers being the additional force to her moves. It’s awesome to see really cool Sheikah stuff in action. 

 Ruto is using water magic and I assume that will be her playstyle. No real surprises on her end but her design is nice. Zelda appears to be possessed or effected by something. The mirror likely will reveal that this isn’t actually Zelda or who ever is possessing her. I hope that any time Zelda is removed from her Queen Bitch position it only lasts a moment in the story because I want to see bad ass Queen Zelda commanding people the whole game. 

We get to see a lot more of our big goron friend. His weapon is the hammer, he has a special with fire and he has a rolling special. I also really like how the stage looks in this game. I wonder if the OoT universe just got more of it’s world sucked in then others with how much they are showing or if they just felt like showing more. It’s also suprsing to see how heavy of a role it appears Sheik has by these screen shoots. This also leads me to believe we might have several playable stories instead of one straight narrative. We have seen screen shoots including in this picture that inform us that there are cut scenes but maybe every characters stories gets some cut scenes and it’s not just the main story. If that’s not the case then it’s very likely that Link is out of commission in addition to Zelda. Sheik and Impa quest to save Zelda and Link who might have been captured since they hold the power of the Triforce. 

We get a look at Impa’s alternate weapon and a new boss in this page. Impa’s halberd  seems pretty sweet and it’s cool to see all this variety with in characters. 

The great Deku Tree returns but according to Nintendo Everything this is an original area for Hyrule Warriors. Youngtown will be happy his prime choice for Smash Bros has a higher chance now. Lana also gets to display her new weapon in this set with does a lot of cool things. It summons little dudes to help, can be uses to blow away enemies and has lots of fun nature magic effects. 

Ocarina of Time link and Zelda are the last DLCs to be added from the Treasure Box outside of the power set. We get to see what Skulltulas do in the game and it apparently gives us puzzles. Maybe doing the puzzle unlocks something? 

In this one we get to see all the really cool little things that go along with weapons. You can use the Junk Shop to swap skills from weapon to weapon with is the most awesome little reveal from a gameplay perspective. I was really worried this title wouldn’t have the depth of Dynasty Warriors Gundam games but it really seems like they are giving Zelda Musou a grade A treatment. We have plenty of characters, a pretty fun plot, and lots of options are showing up. I am shocked at how excited I am for this title. Not being the massive Zelda fan this is the most excited i’ve ever been for a Zelda game. I can’t wait to get this game in my hands.

Other Video Game Icons that could join Smash

image

A lot of people have said that now that we have Pac-man the roster can’t really another 3rd party character that could live up to Pac-man. While Pac-man is likely one of the most Iconic characters in gaming and being paired with Nintendo characters, megaman, and Sonic do make this the biggest clash of Icons yet I did want to hunt for more iconic characters to be added. Now i’m not saying any of the following characters are likely i’m simply saying these characters are popular video game icons. I’ll explain why they matter what they could offer to Smash Bros,  and the lose connection to Nintendo needed (I mean snake was in brawl).

image

Slime (Dragon Quest)

Looking at the sales of Japanese games in the top 30 best selling Japanese titles Dragon Quest had a game placed at 12th best selling of all time. Now let’s add in the fact that 4 of the top 30 best selling Japanese games are Dragon Quest and we have the biggest JRPG icon, at least in Japan, the slime.  A long time ago, maybe a year, I wrote about how Slime could work as a playable character in the series. I suggested Slime could transform into other smiles while attacking. This could give it a really fun move set that gets to show off a lot of the slime family. While a slime looks rather simple to a general american audience I think the fact it had two spin off games above being in a series that has several top selling games gives it a solid place in gaming fame. Dragon Quest is mostly on NIntendo Consoles so I think it totally fits the Nintendo connection quota. 

image

Simon Belmont (Castlevania): Castlevania isn’t the biggest video game series of all time. However, it has more then made it’s mark on gaming. Simon is the one who started it all, his whip taking down many demons on his journey to kill Dracula. An argument could be made that Alucard or Dracula both being better choices do to more appearances in better selling games. I wouldn’t disagree but this is the legend that began in Nintendo’s home field. It was one of the first games to get put into the 3ds virtual console and he really displays the spirit of the series. I think Castlevania is a bigger series to Nintendo then Metal Gear but what ever that doesn’t matter. 

image

 Monster Hunter: This series is stupidly popular in Japan and despite it’s newness already has two of Japans top 30 selling game slots. This series is still growing and yet already holds such a huge amount of sales even in the west. It’s Real Issue is (beyond that is’s a capcom series) that it has no stand out character. No monster, no character, no nothing from Monster hunter really screams it’s importance. Maybe the little cat ally but I think the Monster Hunter herself is the icon. This is a character totally created by the person playing the game and unlike people like Robin from fire emblem the hunter has no real voice as a character. The hunter is the player playing it. Still id be hard pressed not to include a character that has polled really high in Japan for wanting it’s inclusion in Smash Bros.  

image

Ryu (Street Fighter): If you don’t play video games you may not know is name but that outfit, that character is likely something you can tell apart from the crowd. Street Fighter series is the most Iconic fighting game series. The arcade cabnites were huge and so much about the series has landed it’s self in pop culture. Megamans already in the game and I doubt any company really gets more then one 3rd party character. Still Ryu stands out as a gaming legend. Shooting fire balls and dynamic upper cuts are on this mans back. Ryu really represents fighting games and serves as the kind of basic fighting game character. Overall, Ryu is a legend and would be an amazing addition to any title.  

image

Sora (Kingdom Hearts): Sora is a pretty popular Japanese name, it is used my several characters from big anime series such as Digimon, yet no Sora has had near as much impact as Sora from Kingdom Hearts. Regardless if you love or hate the series you most likely know of the guy above if you play video games. Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2 both sit pretty high up in the sales lists for Square. Even Chain of Memories broke a million units sold with is no small feat for a video game. This hero is in an odd place being in a Disney/Final Fantasy cross over. Sora seems to leave his spin offs with Nintendo but leave the main adventure to Sony.  Still Sora is such a prominent figure in gaming and kingdom hearts holds the hearts of many. Sora obviously offers a ton as a character having access to a large array of magic, keyblades, and more. I think their is a lot of legal that would go in but I think Sora is maybe the best way to tie in Disney to the title. I don’t think Sora would be in the game but he is a video game icon. 

image

Spyro (Spyro): Spyro has been on Nintendo consoles 10 times although he is more iconic for his role in playstation titles. Then it’s because of Spyro that they managed to launch Skylanders to become maybe an even bigger thing then Spyro ever way (and if you count skylanders towards the count that is 4 more nintendo games). I made a post on facebook asking people who they thought was a huge video game icon that wasn’t in smash brothers. I had three pretty casual gamers tell me Spyro so it assured that I had to write about this dragon. Spyro is an American made character that maybe didn’t grab a global audience but it did at least leave an impact in his homeland. Spyro has a flurry of moves he has wracked up during his existence as a character and could have a really fun moveset.  He would also be the first character to stand on all 4s in smash. I don’t think Spyro is a likely addition but I think Spyro has edged his way into the hall of video game icons. 

image

Black Mage (Final Fantasy): Final Fantasy is one of the biggest video game series in existence. The series sits at the top 10 best selling video game franchises of all time. Beyond that it’s a powerful name with a ton of great games. Picking a character is the hard part for the series. The Chocobos have had spin off games but they really aren’t a character people would be excited to play. Cloud is the obvious choice in popularity but he is in no way tied to Nintendo. So I think that puts the Black Mage as the choice for the series. Black Mage has been a playable unit in a ton final fantasy titles and appeared in some form in even more.  Black Mage really represents magic for the Final Fantasy universe. It’s move set could easily work with that making It a full on Mage.  I think the Black Mage look will stand the test of time as a real icon of gaming.

image

Bomberman: This guy is a legend of the party game. Play four players and sit down killing each other. While Bomberman doesn’t sit in the round table with Mario, he surely at least gets to go in to clean. Bomberman has had lots of legal trouble with all the events going around it’s IP and the shitty reboot thingy. Still bomberman is an icon that sells games on his name alone. Bomberman has a huge history and most of the games were on NIntendo platforms. 

image

Jack Frost (Atlus): This may be slightly tied to Persona Bias but I believe (and the numbers back me up) that Shin Megami Tensei is a growing series. It already has a heavy cult following but with Atlus’s 4th Shin Megami tensei based anime coming out soon they are really making a name in Japanese pop culture. Jack Frost is Atlus’s icon and is the real most important demon in the series. The Shin Megami Tensei series has been on every NIntendo Handheld console (excluding the gameboy), was on the NES way back in 1987. The series has grown more and more since then and sales keep going up. I think Jack Frost would be a wonderful way to represent growing series. I don’t think Jack Frost is really likely at all but the SMT series has been on Nintendo so many times I feel like Jack Frost would be at home. I mean they made a freaking Virtual Boy game called Jack Bros.

Sheik, Darunia, and Princess Ruto

Ocarina of Times timeline said step it up to the other time lines because three characters are coming to play. I did call Darunia and Princess Ruto in my Hyrule Warriors predictions and Sheik is someone I always considered if they were open to other time lines Zeldas appearing. It’s really cool to see some of the other Zelda races playable and it’s also really cool to see Sheik playable in a none smash game. Darunia is the first male character to be added on the good side since Link. Maybe stupid men can shut up now because the female character are just more important in Zelda (in most cases). Also this raises the count of female characters to 8 if you count Fi. This also puts the roster to 10 characters with breaks the 9 character slots that were in the demo for anyone who honestly believed they would reveal the amount of characters in a demo of a game. Id like to see them pull from a few more Zelda games and I don’t think this is the end of it. For now it seems like were getting new characters every two weeks. If the pattern continues then Famitsu will reveal one more set of characters before the August 14th release. This doesn’t mean that’s all the characters since Nintendo doesn’t have a vested interest in giving the magazine all the information. We will likely see some secret characters at least I hope so. It’s possible that Famitsu could also reveal the villain mode or the fact villains will be playable. Anyway in about 3 days we should get some HQ stuff from the webs so until then that’s it for this Hyrule Warriors update.

Marvel, gimmicks, comics, and false fronts.

image

This is a response to a discussion i’m having with my good friend hallopino he is a great writer and cool artist. His response to my response is liked as the source but I figured my writing format works better when it’s not cluttered as a reblog. He has a few really entertaining web comics going on that are really worth your time. Anyway onto the Marvel rant or what ever. 

image

I totally agree it’s a good thing to make a female version of a notable character in the sense it brings diversity to comics that people will indeed read. However, I take issue for several reasons with these choices. No lasting effects, No real change in creators, and the gimmick effect. I also have a few specific issues with how things are being handled with these particular new changes. 

image

With the lasting effect these things happen every year in comics. Somebody is dead, someone takes somebodies mantel, somebody loses their powers. These things always come undone and these things always last a period of 1 to 2 years. Human Torch dead one year, cap dead 2 years, Super spider-man two years(?), these changes don’t last. Sure Dan Slott can act like now that peter is back everything is going to be changed forever, maybe it will be but the fact Ock was in his body didn’t really matter in the grand scheme of the character. Jonny being dead sure that effect the character for a year but now he is busy having no powers. Since comic book characters are avatars eventually the original person gains back the mantel of these big roles. We do have exceptions but they are exceptions. They for sure didn’t have million’s of dollars in movies coming out about them. Something like Ms. Marvel I love (also it’s the best super hero comic being published easily) and I think it could be a lasting character. Carol deserves the title of captain and I think she will be keeping it. Kamala can use the title of Ms. Marvel and maybe eventually evolve beyond it. We aren’t going to see Falcon be cap forever, were not going to see this new thor forever, infact thor is still around jumping about in comics. 

image

A lot of these examples I gave and these things feel like gimmicks to push comics not really to push a narrative forward. Here’s what I see as a gimmick, it has no lasting effects on the characters, characters have to be tweaked around making a comic series “work”, or simply exists to push the brand. For example in Superior Spider-man we have every character around better minus Dan Slotts fancy new characters totally out of character. Mary Jane knows better better then almost any character in the Marvel Universe and has had to deal with many clones of peter. However, she wasn’t able to go like “Ok your possessed, or mind controlled, or a clone or a kill bot or something.” Right away to a person who has had to deal with these things should come up as like a this person is so out of character it’s not even funny thing. The series really existed to push forward the new edgy spider-man and get some shots of a “badass” spider-man. Nothing really changes for a gimmick like the new 52, we could talk about how it ruins so much but at the end of the day not to much really gets mixed up. It just a thing with some really bad writing that lets people get excited when a character is back into existence. We don’t get a black Bruce Wayne or a female Clack Kent. Really nothing is changing it just makes retelling and mixing up more possible. 

image

Here is the thing that really matters to me and the thing that proves to me that a change isn’t to be more progressive. Recently I wrote about the lack of female creators in the industry. So on this female Thor book we have Jason Aaron still writing the comic. Why in a company that only hires about 10% of all their creative teams mostly consisting of assistant editors can’t they put women on this book. There is no lack of female talent in the industry both currently published and unpublished.  Some may they that the female talent isn’t as good. However, because people like Marvel won’t hire females they don’t have work and can’t build resumes. Creators like the wonderful creator of Ms. Marvel prove that given a chance female writers can turn out some of the best stuff. Saga would not be the amazing comic it is if not for the wonderful Fiona Staples art. I go to the artist ally at an anime convention and it’s like 90% women out there. Women want to get chances to be a part of the creative process of these things but Marvel doesn’t want to change that. They want to use women to produce sales without really providing change.  If the female Thor came from this place of wanting to better represent women then why not hire a female to write it, or draw it? Why can’t the writer of the new Captain America comic be black? Want to know why? It’s because it’s a gimmick, these won’t last and they don’t really care about diversity. They still only have one type or person they are trying to appeal to and that’s straight white men who apparently resist change. If they were really interested in change or in diversity they would prove it with their wallets. Instead this exists to sell issue one of these revamps. They don’t expect these things to really boost sales but it gets people in the door they buy the comic and they sit on the rest of the series. Marvel makes most of it’s money from movies and merch and they know that. Comics exist to further source material to be pulled from things in Disney’s eyes.  It’s not like Marvel is a one man team that couldn’t afford to hire talent of color, different sexuality or sex. They just don’t want to change things up for real. Even the small bit of female creators in the company hardly have any say not being at the creative summits and what not. 

image

Last thing about the female Thor that bothers me is in the design it’s self. She isn’t wielding thor’s hammer according to The View and she has this really stupid costume design. I love the new Batgirl design but this, this is ehh. I just imagine in the deign room they most have been like “We got a new female Thor I designed some sensible armor for her” then a higher up said “hey we aren’t paying for a female thor so we can’t show off a hot female body. Sex sells kids give her some iron boobies.”  It just doesn’t look like it makes sense. Really just, ehh bad design. Why the thing under  the breast plate, why the breast plate that perfectly wraps around the breasts? If Thor had armor that looked like boobs Id be like “Tradition keep alive” but Thors armor does not make him appear to have double D breasts.  My thoughts were all over the place but hopefully I got my point across. I just wrote what was on my mind and hopefully it’s not horrible.  Thanks for reading anyone who reads and have a nice day.

Smash question

image

With the comic con smash tourny happening friday and the news were getting some sort of news there I was wondering with of my drafts I’m working on I should publish this week. I don’t want to overload smash stuff but all of them could become irrelevant with the upcoming news so id like to post one before friday. I have download play in smash, a roster update, my favorite new comers and 3rd party characters that could be iconic enough to stand with pacman. With do you think I should finish up before friday?

Margaret will be another DLC character in P4U

image

According to this image Margaret will indeed be a playable character in P4U. Long gone is the day where a character like Marie or Margaret are unlockable secrets we are amazed by when playing the game instead she is likely DLC like Marie. Now were really only missing Theo, Fukka, and of course Minato (and our lady version who isn’t cannon if you are to be so bold). I don’t think they would put Minato as DLC, at least I hope they wouldn’t since that would be a massive dick move. I originally thought with the way P4A was originally going they would be able to get him back in this game but now I really doubt it since we are showing off DLC. I’m upset that they think it’s cool to charge for these DLC characters that are so obviously made while the game was in development. God bless Sega for injecting Atlus with that #makebigmoneyallday spirit,  this could be arc system to be fair this isn’t out of their wheel house, and it could just be Atlus getting more popular going a bit Capcom. These are the beginnings of the dark times. Here’s to hopping they don’t fuck up Persona 5.
