Azusa Akido Goes Over A List of P3P Changes

Azusa Kido who was responsible for the fusion system in P3/P4, joins the direction team in P3P and goes over a long list of the new and improved features in this port.

  • Skill Cards
    Can be obtained from Personas, exchanged at the Antique Shop, bought over the TV or even cloned at the temple to allow Personas to inherit new skills. This allows players to customise Personas further than before and makes fusion a simpler process for beginners.
  • More Voice Acting
    Instead of simple greetings, the voice acting will cover more dialogue – Mainly focusing on S. Links that have reached rank 10 status to make the game even more memorable.
  • Command to Escape
    You can give out commands directly during battle and can tell them to escape.
  • Tiredness
    You and your party members now only get tired the following day after a good night’s fight making it easier to plan when to go exploring. You can also visit the Healing Shop to heal up tired members to “normal” status while normal status members will get “best condition”. There will even be an item at the school shop “Tsukare Trail” for healing up.
  • Dialogue Changes in Dungeon
    You can talk with your party members while exploring Tartarus and the dialogue changes depending on their status and what equipment they’re using and wearing.
  • Calendar Reminders
    The calendar has been moved from the main menu to your room allowing you to see past S. Link events such as when there was a rank up or when you were invited out so that anyone who stopped playing for a while, won’t forget what they did.
  • New Save Point
    You can now save in the classroom and the saved file has some new added info to it such as how long you’ve been playing the game.
  • Late Night Freedom
    During “late night” you could only choose to sleep or study but now you can also choose to leave your room and go out too if you wanted to.

Liking the changes so far but cloning skill cards… Wonder if that means people can spam moves. There will probably be a limit as to how many times you can visit the shrine to clone.

Would be great if the calendar lets you review past scenes and dialogue too!

Cloning skill cards at the temple.

    Wonderful. I’m sure it will become the perfect game.
    The Skill Cards feature is such a good thinking and cloning them or buying them from the tv will make the fusion system much more easy.
    Thank God that they’ve added facial expressions for both Elizabeth and Shinji now. Thank God that we can still speak to the other pary members while exploiring the dungeon. It’s just wonderful.
    I’m curious about Shinji’s S.Link. Can we be sure that he has one now…?

    The screenshot suggests yes since it’s right after the part where Akido talks about the extra voice acting but who knows… Might just be one of the new expressions and few more lines of spoken dialogue.

    Yeah you’re right. I’m also worried that the date on the picture is 10/3… Maybe he knows that this will be his last conversation with her… He is probably talking about Akihiko, judging from the text… It feels like he wants her to take care of Aki in the case something happens… I hope Shinji has a S.link too…

    Also why don’t they add the Hero’s suit to the blog parts section? Is it because he can’t wear that kind of costume?
    Shinji looks really good in his suit and Aigis looks really cute in her christmas costume.
