The Persona video games being concerning the struggles and experiences of youngsters is cool and all, however what if the sequence cast 4 aged girls dwelling in a Miami home share as a substitute? That is the pressing query builders Joey Pagano and Chris Lindgren have got down to reply of their upcoming parody game The Golden Women Take Manhattan DX.

“What began as a joke has shortly spiralled right into a playground of concepts meant to discover simply how a lot we will push our abilities and retain our sanity with our personal model of humour,” an introduction on Pagano’s developer site reads. “Merely put, that is Persona 5’s gameplay changed with the context of The Golden Women. There is no such thing as a cause for why we used that coat of paint apart from ‘how far can we take this joke.'”

It seems to be just like the challenge has been within the works for a couple of years, with the location touting a playable demo arriving in the summertime… of 2021. It would not seem to have ever come out. However because of a trailer that went stay over on The Golden Women Take Manhattan DX Twitter web page over the weekend, that is my first time (and I think about many others) seeing simply what the hell that is.

Pagano’s web site calls it a Persona 5 parody particularly, however there’s an terrible lot of Persona 3 and Persona 4 inspiration working via it too. Every lady has their basic aspect portrait icon, and the battle menus and overworld really feel so much nearer to the old-school entries. There are some distinctly un-Persona issues featured although, like Souls-style dodge rolling. I am undecided why it is there, however I am right here for it.

It is a top-tier shitpost, one I am unable to wait to check out when it releases totally free Vacation 2023.
