Also, Mitsuru and Akihiko look awesome. No idea why they both have capes though.

To be technical, Mitsuru looks like she's wearing a furcoat, and Akihiko is wearing his gym jacket without pulling on his sleeves, so... I guess they decided "not wearing coats" = Cool battle uniforms?

Kanji has his coat-cape thing as well. Must be the current fashion trend in Japan.

So is there any reason to believe this is the real full cast? There's always the possibility that the character select screen just didn't have all the spots.

I wonder if this game will be canon since they seem to have an older Mitsuru and Akihiko. Hoping for more characters down the line if the game does well.

P4 takes place a year after P3, and P4U takes place the year after that. So they're two years older, going from seniors in high school to college sophomores.

They make it obvious in P4 during the school trip to Gekkoukan, where the older Chihiro is the Student Council president--obviously because Mitsuru graduated.

Yeah I stopped playing P4 after I got the TWEEST spoiled for me during Nanako's dungeon. I should probably finish it someday or watch the anime I guess.

Like I pointed out before, the Twitter Icon section has 3 unknown slots, and Mitsuru/Akihiko would fill up 2. There's one left, so I'm assuming Marie or someone might be it.

Other than that... You're right, ATLUS/ArcSys would easily be able to put in as many characters as they can. Just wanted to say that the Twitter icon page holds a "hint".

It's not like Arcsys has a thing for hidden unlockable bosses or anything.

Read the LP? Feinne did an excellent job with it.

Actually I've been really, really wanting to do an LP of P4, but I don't know how you could make it interesting enough to warrant a second go-around. Some kind of challenge, maybe...

No one man should have all that Psycho-Power.



I can see some vega/balrog/bison arguments coming out of this game re: p4 protagonist.

I am on the Charlie Tunoku side of that fight.



I know a lot of people that are interested in this game that do not give 2 shits about fighting games simply due to being Persona. I myself hope simply that its more on the A team side of arc system works(like GG), rather than being one of their "we're doing this simply to make money" games like Sengoku basara or Fist of the north star.

HNK is probably the best fighting game ever made and you shouldn't mention it in the same sentence as SBX. It is also easily superior to Blazblue and probably also this game.

Here's the best example (beware Japanese tournament announcer getting hype): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9V3O9dDj4Ck

This is a video of someone playing the worst character in the game, also featuring Japanese commentary. Kinda long though. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Stx0...feature=related

Anyway about this game I hope the location tests start soon because learning which Persona characters are in this isn't very interesting at all if I have no inkling as to how effective and fun they are to play in a non-RPG

I love HnK but it really is a badly made game. Bad animation, not balance tested in the slightest, and buggy as hell. Trying to play the game at high level is about as unfun as a fighting game can be. People love the game because it's HnK, it's funny, and they don't actually try to play the game at a high level.

SBX is basically the same exact thing except all the horribly broken and unfun stuff is apparent even at the lowest levels of play.

For what it's worth, Blazblue in the arcades was released with 10 characters selectable and then 2 more boss characters (In the home release you can select them right away), and I think HNK was also 10 characters. Sprite based games take a while to make from scratch

I don't really care for Akihiko and Mitsuru's designs, they both look really silly and I don't understand why Akihiko is not wearing a shirt or why Mitsuru looks like she walked out of a bad 90s comic.

P3/P4 spoilers:

P3 begins in 2009 and ends in 2010, P4 begins a year later in 2011 and ends in 2012. Mayonaka Arena takes place two months after the end of P4, so the cast of P3 would be sophomores in college (since they graduated high school in the spring of 2010). So I should have said that P4 begins a year after the end of P3.

So we have confirmation as to why Mitsuru and Akihiko are in the game now. Did we ever hear why Aigis is hanging around? I'm sure there's tons of speculation, but I don't remember hearing an official reason.

As of today, we're only missing two titles from the cast, Aigis' and Mitsuru's. To add with that, Teddie's the Beast of Libido, and Akihiko's The Protein Junkie With Strong Fists. ... I remember hearing that Teddie's the one comin' up with these, but why would he call himself the Beast of Libido? Who knows!, maybe December will be home to some info about the game's plot?

It's because Teddie is the man.

If Teddie's taunt doesn't say "Come on baby, don't fight over me" or something similar I'm cancelling my pre-order

She was the original leader of SEES (Specialized Extracurricular Execution Squad) before the MC of P3 came into town, and is not only the valedictorian in her grade, but also the class president, AND the captain of the fencing team (Which is why she uses fencing weapons).

To make a long story short, she fought Shadows the most out of SEES, because of how she's the child of the head of the Kijiro Group, who originally discovered these mental bad boys. As I written in the OP, she uses ice spells, and also has some status changing ones, and she's a pretty cool girl.
