Huh. They changed whatshisface's name, was it Igor? The Velvet Room guy. Either way, it looks really good. I'm interested to see how the anime will turn out, if there will be one.

Nah, his name is still Igor. They did change his voice actor though, since his previous VA, Isamu Tanonaka, unfortunately passed away in 2010.
Regarding the anime, there will be one!
It's just a small prologue special though, to my knowledge. Probably best to watch someone else play through the game or play through it yourself when it comes out (the only true way to experience the full story, imo) 'cause I don't think there is going to be a "true" anime adaption for a couple years (or at all, assuming P5 doesn't have a million spin-offs and such like P4, not that I'd mind).
Aaaand there's some more magazine scans:
EDIT: Almost forgot, the new trailer got translated:

I wrote name? I meant to write voice actor XD
Didn't know his previous VA died.

Yeah. I'm pretty sure that after he died they just re-used the voice clips from the previous games in the anime adaptions, movies, and the Arena spin-offs (his character straight up wasn't in Shadow of the Labyrinth or Dancing All Night), instead of getting a new voice actor right away out of respect for him.
The new voice is a lot deeper, though I think that was intentional. Some people are theorizing that Igor is actually pissed off at protagonist, which would make the design of Velvet Room make a little more sense, but I think that the Velvet Room design and such is mostly for plot reasons with the whole "imprisoned by society" thing that the game has going on. P3 and P4 both had Velvet Rooms that sort of "went" with the plot's theme. Angry Igor is still a possibility though, it would help explain why Caroline and Justine, the new attendants, also seem kinda' peeved at protag. Then again they could still just be going along with the theme and be doing their job as prison wards (which is what they seem to be in this instance). Guess we won't know for a while. /endpointlessramble
"Detailed analysis" of the trailer coming soon, since I seem to have nothing better to do than theorize about things.
E3 badge is being teased, it looks very Morgana-shaped:
This has yet to be confirmed, but this is supposedly what it looks like:
I hope this is real and someone confirms it. I need confirmation that this is the US release 'cause then it would then be only 5 days after the Japanese release. It would be a freaking miracle and I'm so excited for it.
EDIT: ^wowza that was a good mockup
February 14th release date confirmed for US! I know what I'm doing on Valentine's Day. While I am kind of disappointed in the later release date, their E3 booth sounds exciting. I wanna meet Soejima and get a Morgana hat. ;-;
Also, US special edition is now available but it isn't as cool as the Japanese one (I'm personally getting both the Japanese and US releases so it won't make much difference to me

Some new screenshots mixed in with some old ones:
The ones that caught my eye the most were these:
Wowza. The Velvet Prison looks rough.
There's also going to be another stream it seems:
More trailers pls.

Lots of new stuff is coming up about P5, including the Q&A with series' character designer Shigenori Soejima!

Scans were also translated, they have some new information on the Palace part of the game:

The stream showed some gameplay and a "new" character.

Soooooo there was another stream and a crap ton of new info but I'm honestly too lazy to post a bunch of links, so here's my brief summary:
• Gameplay, glorious gameplay.
• The opening sequence and the actual opening to the game were shown. Protagonist did nothing wrong, Lyn has a great voice.
• Daybreakers, the anime short that will be coming out before (if I remember correctly?) the game does looks like it actually has worse animation than the cutscenes in-game. Dunno how I feel about it, but will probably watch it regardless.
• Morgana (the cat) turns into a FREAKING bus that you can drive around. Quality feature 10/10.

Already beat it haha, pretty good ending to be quite honest, loved it way more than P4G and P3Fes.
