thegeekdojo.net

Person 5 may have gotten delayed for the 1000th time for western audiences, but Atlus has come through with a new English trailer to help ease the pain. It doesn’t get rid of all the pain, but I will be able to sleep a little better at night knowing that it does still exist. Japan says its really good. Check out the trailer below.

Hopefully it wont get delayed again, but look for Persona 5 to hit stores sometime in April of 2017.

Kojima Explains Why He Chose to Partner With Sony

Kojima explained his reasoning in a recent exclusive interview with IGN. It all boils down to familiarity. “We know each other well,” he says. “I feel like this is an environment where I will be able to make something and feel comfortable.” Considering what he went through at Konami, I’m sure really appreciates that feeling.

Hideo Kojima has developed a strong bond with Sony for over a decade now. He even mentions the trust he has developed with Sony over the years and how they have helped him with his global recognition. “With Sony PlayStation, they make their content globally. It’s thanks to Sony that I was able to make a splash in the global market.”

Check out the interview below to hear Kojima speak on it himself.

Kojima officially left Konami this past Wednesday. His new company, Kojima Productions, is already underway and he has confirmed that he is working on a new exclusive project for the PlayStation 4 and PC.

It’s finally here again gamer! It’s the weekend and hopefully you are able to get plenty of game time in.

I will be checking out GTAV’s new free mode events. The events looks pretty fun judging from the trailer so I will definitely be hopping online to try them out. I may even try to finally do a heist. I don’t have enough friends to play it but I may try to do it with randoms. I will also be playing Metal Gear Solid V, and Heroes of the Storm of course.

Persona 5 Continues to Impress, But is Also Delayed

geekdojo.wordpress.com

Atlus has released a new trailer for Persona 5 and it looks incredible. The trailer was shown off at Tokyo Game Show where Atlus also announced that the game has been pushed into 2016.

The setting takes place in a big city, which is more than likely Tokyo. In the trailer, we really get to see some of the gameplay and activities you may do throughout the game like martial art training or turning into cats…yea, I said that right. The trailer is also filled with some of the things you will do outside of your daily student life routine such as battling demons with you persona.

Atlus continues to be very quiet about P5 as far as the story goes, but it looks like you are some type of costumed, demon fighting world traveler judging from the opening cinematic and the trailer as a whole. Hopefully we will get an English version soon. Check out the trailer below.

Expect Persona 5 sometime in  2016.
