Yeah, i'm not really interested in this game either... we'll see what happens though.
If anything only the combo system/hitstun looks similar as well as bursts. The persona system makes it completely different and changes the momentum of how you actually play. That and this game seems to have way more cross-ups and even has unblockable and ambiguous setups.
It also has quite a few more mechanics.

oh and kuroko and the rest don't be too excited the number of characters you get the play are kind of steep. I was hoping for more of across-over not just from p3 +p4 but p1 & p2 IS & EP as well. would have been so cool to play as tatsuya and using his apollo flame or reiji and his "death wish".
You became a l'Cie, so now you're gonna marry this idiot? And you think I'm gonna buy that? Full points for originality. But, don't forget. If you really are a l'Cie, it's my job to deal with you.
