P3/P4 Persona-type Shadows (just like P5)

Post by ToldYouSo » Sat Nov 21, 2020 5:53 am

Has anybody noticed during playthrough of P5, how persona-type enemies in P5 brought so much new fun and variety in contrast of that pale and lame shadows design of P3 and P4?

To be honest, the combat in these games are kinda losing so much to new Persona games, just because of how Atlus refused from Demons/Persona concepts for in-game enemies. They are constantly being repeated during any stage of the game, and this is REALLY, really a main reason, why this becomes so less interested after the beginning. Instead of great Shin Megami Tensey legacy, Atlus made a strange decision and could not afford to put much effort into it.

Not kinda sure, is it possible, since Im not acquainted with coding in Golden or 3. From the view of graphical changes, however, I see there's not to much to do. Persona-type shadows still can play their animation during attack event, or ability cast, and dies, fading away in black fog (just like they always did). I guess, the only problem is about playing "knockdown", but man, this is not so much of a need for this. I would really hype if something like that would come out someday. Gotta give me so much excitement to run NGL again.

As for now, maybe someone informed let me know, if its even possible to make!

I like this idea, especially in the wake of all these mods that try to make P3/4 more like P5 aesthetically. I see no reason why it wouldn't be possible, since all you'd have to do is replace the enemy model with the Persona model (and maybe tweak animation order to match, if they don't already). And I guess change their stats/moveset/sounds to match. It'd take a lot of time and effort but it's totally doable for any of the games

If so, that idea will surely come out someday. I'm not sure im the first one to ever come to think about this. If ofcourse, modding wont die too quickly.

Ofcource, Pixie will be the most deadliest Persona-shadow.
Maybe I would take a personal look at modding tools since I return home by new ear. Feel sorry I can't start working right now, since Im not so hyped like my first trying P3-P4, and job is draining my spirit.
