Famitsu Discovers Some P3P In-game Dating Events at TGS2009

Kawashima from Famitsu has a short report about the things he spotted while trying out P3P at this year's Tokyo Game Show 2009. Most of the info we know already if you've been keeping track of all P3P related news but, there are one or two pieces of information regarding the in-game life sim events.

Stop reading on now if you don't like spoilers.

P3P at the Tokyo Game Show 2009.

A Date with Junpei

Yes, ladies. You can now date Junpei as the Heroine.

On April 23rd, you can hang out with him at the Ramen place. Then on May 5th, there appears to be a date with him. Not long after that, on May 7th he visits the cafe with the Heroine, trying to drink coffee like a grown up man and ends up blushing when the Heroine praises him.

Girls Talk

On April 28th, you can hang out with Yukari. By going out with her later, you can hear some girl's talk such as brands of lipsticks as we've seen from screenshots earlier.

Why not take a break?

Since they've already mentioned the change to the battle system, do you think they're also changing the dating system to be closer P4 as well?

I thought the same the first but it's rather meaningless if the other party members won't have full access to the items.
As long as they don't remove using two personas for Fusion Spells like before, it's useless.

I don't think characters besides the MC's will be able to use the Items for Fusion. Rather its a way to make you create them and limit them, so you don't spam Armageddon + Victory Cry or something like that.

Umm, you mean now that we can control the other party members too so when it's needed we will have them use the Fusion Spells as items?
Now that the others too can access to the inventory, they made it like that so that the whole party can use them as they please...?

First date's just a casual thing I think and the other's are the ones the player arranges.

And yes I saw the video. They've made that ability available as items now. Probably because you can give party members commands directly.

Well The Magician Link should be the first link you get so it's not strange for her to hang out with Junpei on April 23 (it was around that time when Kenji invited you to Hakurage in P3) but all these are first events of their Links? All of them kinda sounded like in-game events, not a S.Link's. I mean what all those dates for? The player decided to spend time with Junpei and Yukari on those days?

Btw Did you see the third video in the velvet room (on the front page)? What’s with using the Fusion Spells as an item?
Fusion Spell was a special ability that only the MC of P3 could use and I respected that honor but now this… Well, I’m really looking forward to the game but I just hope they didn’t forget to give enough respect to the MC.

So Junpei becomes the first Link then? And we can get a Link with Yukari since April? I was expecting things to change, because of Minako, but then what will Charm, Courage and Knowledge do this time around? Or rather... who needs this stats this time around instead of Yukari, Fuuka and Mitsuru?

Need an english version of this game soon...
