Director – Kazuyuki Yamai (Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne Maniax, Raidou series)
Art director – Eiji Ishida (Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne, Strange Journey)
Composer – Ryota Kozuka (Trauma Team, Soul Hackers 3DS opening theme)
Main programmer – Satoshi Ooyama (Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne Maniax, Raidou series)
Sound director – Kenichi Tsuchiya (Shin Megami Tensei series, Persona series)

I actually think Meguro and Kaneko must be working on something else, funny that they both don't prioritise SMT4 over whatever it is, though. :|


That makes me sad. I been around since the begging and I'm going to be honest if it comes down to Persona 5 or SMT 4 I want a new SMT, but Persona is more popular so I bet they're both on P5.

Kaneko back on Persona? That would be weird and Soejima fans would throw a hissy fit. In that case, maybe Soejima is doing art for the next Trauma Team game just to complete the mindfuckery that Atlus are doing here. lol

That'd be pretty funny. Its slowly happening, I'm losing my interest in most Atlus games in general.

Shit, no Meguro either?
That's insanity.

But yeah, like you say, I'd bet that both of them are just working on something else. People like to jump to the "they're getting booted out!" conclusion when it comes to subjects like this, but I seriously doubt that'd be the case.
It'd actually be really cool to see Kaneko doing something totally unrelated to Megaten alotgether...

Eiji Ishida an art director on SMIV? It sure doesn't show anything from SMTIII and SJ, which in turn shows that those games had Kaneko's soul and Ishida is just a technical guy - a designer, not an artist.

I don't know about Meguro, it's possible for him to work on P5, but Kaneko is not making a Persona game IMO. I belive he's out of the picture. Prove me wrong, ATLUS.

A new IP with Kaneko on art and Meguro doing the music has me pretty excited...the last time that happened we got Maken X! That was 13 years ago!

I am seriously pissed that Masakado translated only two of the three Digital Devil Monogatari.

It seems that's still awesome, right? Getting 2/3 for free? The fans should be happy.

Not really.

It's one story in three parts, not three stories sharing one universe.

What's worse, the third one is the best in every possible way and features "tragic consequences that shocked the audience". I don't know the details, though, and I really wish Masakado had finished what he started.

EDIT: The internet can give you a lot of bollocks. Digital Devil Monogatri doesn't end with part 3! Most English-language sites touching on this subject will tell you that there are three parts, but I've found a great site that explains it all: http://complete.electrolit.net/2010/09/ ... ned-novel/

The hero of the original Digital Devil Story, the human avatar of Izanagi, was supposed to become the new Messiah, but - unlike Jesus - he succumbed to the temptations of the devil and wanted to slaughter the heroine. She was the human avatar of Izanami and she had to kill him in defence. No wonder the audience was shocked. This is heavy.

You guys are getting the Vita P4 though right? It will only be a matter of time before they announce P5 anyway. Seems they are juggling ideas of what they want the P4A europe release to really be like, and the region locking on the US version of that particular game was just ignorant.
