Your reaction: Persona 5 takes place in Feudal Japan

As a MAJOR prequel, the next game takes place in feudal Japan, where you're some sort of Persona-using samurai, shadows gradually starting to conquer the world, etc etc. How would you react?

Initial reaction: "WTF!?"
Weeks later: "I see how this can work. I look forward to it."

Initially, I would retch. It would, in fact, be the total abandonment of everything we knew about Persona, and I do not doubt they would find someone to keep the super-hip-teenagers thing in tact. Seeing it would be unbelievable. I'd still buy it though.

And that won't make sense at all as Persona's setting is modern.

It'd be cool, I guess, but that kind of setting isn't really made for Persona.

I would rather see Devil Summoner tackle that rather than Persona (Raidou the 14th is in the 1920's and Raidou the first is from...I forget, but it's a really long time ago)

I think it'd be awesome to see the adventures of another Raidou.

However, I wouldn't be opposed to Persona doing this. I'd think it's a weird choice, but I do think it could work.

Pokemon is managing to do it, why can't Persona? :P

I didnt liked the Shadows start to conquer the world part. Anyway, i would rather modern style but the feudal setting wouldnt turn me off as long as it doesnt try to be an onimusha or smthing of the sort.

I can see what your pinpointing at. If they try to make a Persona in a feudal Japan, Most certainly Raidou will cameo in it (for preferences and stuff) or do a minor crossover?
