Yeah, I mean, I can get past the whole exp boost thing if the story is at least vastly improved, that statement is true as I've gone back to 3 for the past couple of days and the differences are astounding. However, if they continue dumbing down the gameplay, it'll only make it harder for the casuals to catch up to the previous games. Unless they decide to release the definitive versions of 3 and 4 (combining the pros of FES and Portable for 3 and essentially a remade Golden) on PS4/5.After (and including) 3, Persona was always meant to be the "casual friendly" gateway into more hardcore SMT titles. Good for them if they make bank between titles I'm actually interested in (even thought I still played all Personas, including 1 and EP).
Seriously Atlus, come on already. We don't need more fucking dancing games, you clearly wanna use those IPs.
EDIT: I see what you mean now, the "other" SMT. Yeah, I dunno about that. It's hard for me to see them doing anything with it frankly, the Persona spinoffs just make way more money and have the popularity.
