@TheFrenchiestFry Oh.. oh god. That's hideous. He looks like one of those aliens from Episode II of starwars. Those grey ones that own the cloning planet.

@VoidofLight Some bald purple dude in a gaudy open gold vest and also as a teenage school girl. That's not a joke.

To the artist's credit, Merkabah looked REALLY cool, easily one of the most bizarre and awesome demon designs in the series (unfortunately he's the only new demon that looked really good).

@TheFrenchiestFry That Lucifer design is probably based on the idea held by some people, that the angels described in the Bible, are actually E.T.s visiting earth. I can see how they designed it that way. It´s a good thing they didn´t keep it tough.

Bamm!

Oh, that actually explains why they went with that design.

I'm really happy Mermaid is back from IV: Apocalypse.

@Kirby_EU Yes! Chironnupu is back from Apocalypse as well!

Atlus really like designing honest looking girls with long hair

Tao looks almost exactly like Tsubasa from Tokyo Mirage Sessions and Ichinose from Persona 5 Strikers lol

A lot has been said about how this looks similar in certain ways to Nocturne, but I'm also getting pretty big If... vibes from this, especially since we now know that the characters aren't trapped in Da'at and seem to attend school in their original dimension post-exposure to the other Tokyo. I'm guessing the school will play a pretty big role in this game.

Actually, I wonder if there's any possibility of school life gameplay factoring into this. The reaction from the edgelord fanbase would be hilarious, but as long as it didn't take up a massive amount of play time, I wouldn't mind being able to do stuff in modern Tokyo. One of the most distinctive aspects of SMT I was just how long you stayed in something resembling the everyday world.

@TheFrenchiestFry It's a pretty traditional design for a Japanese high school girl.

I can already tell the Atsuta siblings are going to overshadow the rest of the cast, lol.

@Snaplocket I won't hear of anyone demeaning demon lord best girl Hikaru.

Certainly beats his real form in that game, which looks like alien Freddie Mercury or something.

@Ralizah I actually thought of something like that too, upon hearing that the school is going to be re-occurring. I honestly wouldn't mind there being some gameplay elements to do with the school itself, but I doubt they'd make it a huge element, given Persona exists for a reason.

(Insert creative or cool phrase here.)

@VoidofLight tbh I breathed a sign of relief when I saw the other characters, heard about Bethel, and read that you're not trapped in Da'at, tbh. Some basic school life gameplay would be even better.

The initial trailer was stunning, but also made me think it was going to be another lonely experience where you're surrounded by nothing but demons 90% of the time like Nocturne.

@Ralizah I haven't played Nocturne, but the few glimpses I've seen.. it looked pretty lonely.

Ralizah

@VoidofLight It doesn't help that, the few times you run into your human "friends" who also survive the apocalypse, they grow progressively more insane and frightening over the course of the game.

If the gameplay also partially delves into school life stuff I wonder if instead of taking cues from an obvious point of inspiration like Persona, they instead take some pages out of Fire Emblem Three Houses and how it handled the Monastery and elements of its support system

I don't expect the school life stuff to be a huge part of SMT V, certainly not to the extent of the social sim stuff you do day-to-day in a Persona game, but it'd be a nice way to diversify gameplay and perhaps bring in the Persona crowd without immediately alienating the people who play mainline for the streamlined narrative and battling/recruiting mechanics

@TheFrenchiestFry I could see them going the monastery route, where it's mostly just a hub area, or base of operations, and you spend a lot of time there prepping for stuff.

Anahita is today's demon. It's an interesting, eye-catching design (especially the hair!). Supposedly she's associated with water and (sexual) fertility, so the design makes a lot of sense to me.

Looks like tomorrow is Chironnupu.

That hair looks even more luscious than the Nahobino's lol

Anahita as always being gorgeous! My favorite goddess in Strange Journey Redux.

But I still disagree with this Demeter's design. A harvest's goddess being a "Loli" ... oh Japan.

@Alex90 Yeah I personally prefer how Demeter looked in the Persona 2 duology myself
