Datamine gives more credence to Atlus leak

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Datamine gives more credence to Atlus leak

In December someone at 5ch posted a supposed leak pertaining to Atlus, that looked like this:





As I'm writing this I realize that it was posted 5 days before Granblue Fantasy Versus was revealed.
So this was already looking pretty credible, as there were seemingly no rumors about that game going around beforehand.

Then the other day, a dataminer found this in Smash bros U:

Menentoes and Jack kinda line up with "Mementos" and "Jack" from the earlier leak.

So if all of these are true, it gives us quite a bit of future information.
The biggest one for me would be Persona 5 Arena, as I've been hoping for that game to be a thing.

But I have to say that if Mementos really is the Smash stage for Joker, that seems like one of the worst picks they could have made from a game with so many interesting locations...
I'll reserve my judgement until I see it, but it sounds a bit disappointing.

They picked a horrible stage for joker going by persona 5, but I trust Sakurai can make it interesting. I hope the DQ11 costume is like alph to olimar and not just a pallet swap



After the huge push of Dragon Quest 11 in the last direct, I 100% believe Erdrick can get in, and I was skeptical earlier.



Only thing I don't think is completely correct is the P5R and P5U. I definitely know P5R is real and U is likely. But I feel that it makes no sense that you can get agreement info out of a datamine. That's seems more of reaching. Also if that's the case. Atlus has some explaining to do, it seems counterproductive if it's not a PQ and P5U advert only. Reason why? Why in the world would they announce on ATLUS' youtube page that P5R is a PlayStation announcement? Especially after the joker announcement. That was easily a way to announce bringing P5R to Ninty. Feels like that'll be a PS4 Exclusive honestly. BUT still doesn't mean they aren't advertising it. P4D did have PQ music in it and the SMTIV costumes etc are in P5 etc. ATLUS is a bit weird like that so you never know



WAIT, I just realized, this is talking about a atlus Leak and a smash datamine not just Smash. OKAY that actually all makes sense. Don't mind me haha

Now why couldn't this info be confirmed on the last Direct? At least I assume the P5 announcement will come alongside the release of Joker in Smash, so there's that.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Yeah a datamine from Smash found those words that seem to correspond with the leak earlier.
The fact that the leak already got Granblue Fantasy Versus right is also noteworthy, as no one saw it coming. Pun intended.

I agree that the Playstation logo at the start of P5R's trailer, on Atlus own channel is still a strange practice for a game that's not an exclusive.
I believe I was the one who brought it up in the P5R topic. It lead me to suspect that maybe P5R isn't the enhanced version, because if there is one, I very much expect it to come to Switch as well. But given this information, I'm leaning more towards it being what it seems to be. Perhaps they'll edit the Playstation logo out once its announced for Switch?

Not really sure about more SE characters. Cloud has like two music tracks and zero spirits. Its like SE don't really want to be a part of it.



If the rumored stage for Joker is true, I'll be sorely disappointed. As much as I love Persona 5 to death, Mementos was such a boring, dull, and sleep inducing piece of programming. The weakest part of the game other than Kunikazu Okumara's Palace.
