Remember everyone that Persona Super-Live Night of the Phantom is coming on February 5th straight from the Nippon Budokan in Tokyo. Atlus will be preceding this with a 30 hour livestream starting at 1:00pm JST on Feb 4th (11:00pm Feb 3rd EST) bringing viewers up to speed with the franchise, and the concert itself will be at 18:30 JST (4:30AM EST / 1:30AM PST).
Here is a useful chart of the proceedings created by NeoGAF user FluxWaveZ
When Should I Be Tuning In?:
That's a good question, and it really depends on what you are looking for. The smart money is on a Persona 4 Dancing All Night trailer filling up one of the question mark times. We may also see a new game announcement (P4A Ultimax for PS4/Xbox One?)
If you're here looking for Persona 5 (which let's face it, all of us are), if somethings going to happen it's happening as event 14 (which was listed with 5 red question marks on the Atlus site). Personally I'll be watching from 4AM EST onwards in hopes the Super-Live concert will be streamed (this isn't clear as of now).
Here's what we know:
- Shoji Meguro will be there, along with usual collaborators Shihoko Harata, Lotus Juice and Yumi Kawamura.
- Songs from Persona 3 and 4 will be there.
- As you can see from above, the colour scheme for the event is red which corresponds with Persona 5. The only revealed Persona 5 character (overwhelmingly likely to be the protagonist) is in the background of the poster flanked the the main characters of P3 and P4.
Feb. 5th will mark 5 months and 5 days from the last Persona 5 trailer and lines up with series director Katsura Hashino's promise to reveal more information about Persona 5 in early 2015.
Atlus will livestreaming a 30 hour countdown as well as the Super Live Event on NicoNico and on Atlus' website.
Will you be waking up?
My Predictions for the Event:
- Full-length trailer, showing cast of characters and scenario for Persona 5.
- July 2015 Japanese Release Date for Persona 5
- New trailer for Persona 4 Dancing All Night, with release date.
