The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild omitted a lot of famous Zelda enemies, but this year’s upcoming sequel could bring a few of them back.
About Stan Hogeweg
Stan owes their love of turn-based RPGs and all other things gaming to a second-hand Game Boy Advance SP and Wario Land 3. Persona, Zelda, and Pokemon rank among their all-time franchises, but they can be caught playing Dungeons & Dragons on a weekly basis too. Stan has a BA in English from California State University, San Bernardino.
Although Atlus is taking quite some time to reveal Persona 6, it just announced Persona 5: The Phantom X, which could say a lot about P6.
Persona 5 and Persona 5 Royal have epic conclusions, but the games' halfway mark reflects the final battles in a couple of notable ways.
Several RPG franchises are showing off the potential of action-oriented gameplay lately, but Persona 6 should retain the IP's turn-based style.
Persona 3 Portable still stands out from the newer, more intricate franchise entries through a cast of party members that Persona 6 can imitate.
Persona 5 favors the Hold Up mechanic over Shuffle Times, but the latter mechanic could work well in Persona 6 with the help of a Confidant.
Horizon Zero Dawn's boss fights left a lot to be desired, but Horizon Forbidden West has quite a few compelling ideas for Aloy's biggest battles.
Years before Persona 5 released, Persona 4 Golden featured an odd character that had more in common with Confidants than most Social Links.
Horizon Forbidden West ends on a poignant note for Sylens, and Guerrilla Games could pay his character arc off in many ways in the third game.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild features several Great Fairies, but the eccentric horse god Malanya represents them particularly well.
New Forspoken footage highlights Tanta Olas, the Tanta of Wisdom, and her moniker could suggest that she'll be a surprising resource for Frey.
Persona 6 could emphasize its school elements more heavily than ever in order to offer a unique tone and refresh some of Atlus' oldest tropes.
Both Horizon Zero Dawn and Horizon Forbidden West include landmarks for mourning characters, which may indicate a pattern for the third game.
Persona 5 Royal and its spinoff make extensive use of the seven deadly sins for dungeon design, and Persona 6 should make that a recurring theme.
Atlus revealed that it will launch Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden at the same time in a few months, which comes as a bit of a surprise.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet has confirmed that players can get Pokemon Eggs again, but the Picnic-driven method raises a lot of questions.
Atlus recently revealed a major patch coming to Soul Hackers 2 in November, and its changes could be testing the waters for Persona 6 updates.
Legendary Pokemon occupy a strange niche in Pokemon GO, and Niantic should consider giving them some more special treatment through a landmark.
Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe is a great blast from the past for Kirby fans, and its multiplayer design should leave a mark on the series.
Minecraft's arthropod category needs more support, and adding new ones to a variety of biomes would be a great way to improve two things at once.
