    If they're going to do it then they should take the opportunity to make an actual definitive edition of P3 instead. Game's in a weird spot having two separate versions. Anything less and some people will end up disappointed that something's missing.

    PSP version IS the definitive edition, just like P4G is the definitive edition of P4 despite being on different system.
    What? ALL Persona games have at least 2 versions, P1 even has 3.

    Btw, I can't source the leaks because that Twitter account is already removed. Supposedly he was an "insider" and got the files for PC versions of P3 and P4.
    Whether the leak is legit or not, P3 is the only logical next step for Atlus now (apart from the recent Switch version of SMT1). Unlike other Personas, P5 Royal is still fresh and selling on consoles so it's safe to assume they'll focus on the older games before bringing it to Steam.

    Given there's a big chunk of content missing (Answer) in P3P and they streamlined out the exploration iirc for the portable game, it's far from the definitive edition in my eyes, it's a different edition.

    P4G would be an example of definitive, because it has everything from the original and more. If I want to play through the Answer on P3P I am shit outta luck.

    It isn't a hard concept to grasp. P4G and P5R are definitive as they have everything from the original and more.

    P3P is not definitive, it has some features I want/prefer and outright omits some content, also I happen to vastly prefer the exploration of Persona 3/FES, not the menu driven approach of P3P - one is not inherently better or more definitive than the other.

    Well, they're releasing ports not remasters so a version combining FES and Portable will probably never be made.

    Crystal Chronicles remastered doesn’t have any local co op



    Their excuse is that the free demo of the game will let people play with whoever owns it, while casually hiding the fact that even if you play this way the entire final act is unavailable?

    Is it just me or does the demo for
    The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III look outdated? I'm watching combat animation and it just seems.... meh.

    You prefer FES or P3P?

    All in all, they are mostly the same game. Overall I would say P3P. Female MC gives you an opportunity to know the rest of the party members better (male party members didn't get SL in normal P3). You can save Shinji as well.

    The lack of overworld exploration is surprisingly an improvement. Like, in Persona games the actual walking in town doesn't really do anything. It is novel when you play the first time but it is a chore when you got multiple playthroughs like me.

    Controllable arty member of course is a fucking boon. Micromanaging the strategy, while works, gets tedious real fast.

    There is lack of the Answer which is unfortunate tho. IMO The Answer works for me not because of the explanation of the MC passing but for the rest of the casts. You see how much Junpe grows, you see how Mitsuru and Yukari develop their relationship. I kinda dislike Aegis and Metis but they are OK too.

    Iirc he is still knocked down for the rest of the game (hospitalized or something) but yeah he doesn't die if you max his SL before the incident.

    But even more importantly, it seems like something is going on with Live A Live and US trademark. Will we finally see official localization?

    Game looks charming, smooth and pretty. 2D action platformers are usually not my cup of tea but this seems sweet enough to get a can.
