Persona 4: The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena

Post by Claire on Sat Mar 17, 2012 12:59 pm




TRAILER

GAMEPLAY VID 1

GAMEPLAY VID 2

GAMEPLAY VID 3


Anyone who has played the Shin Megami Tensei: Persona games and enjoyed even one of them just had one hell of a nosebleed. A Persona fighting game? Say it ain't so! Hopefully this goes over much better than the box office crash that is Dissidia, since we're working with gold here.

Fans of the BlazBlue or Guilty Gear series might notice something familiar from these gameplay clips. The reason for that is, Arc System Works or the company that built the battle system for BlazBlue and Guilty Gear, is backing up ATLUS to form this game. So, the fast paced, 2D Arcade style is being brought to the Persona universe! Everything from Instant Guarding and Barrier Bursting, to lengthy yet painfully sweet combos and mind blowing Distrortion Drives!

The game seems to have its own unique spin on it, however. From what I can gather just from watching the gameplay, the Persona is basically used as a trump card. Used either to lengthen a combo to cause more damage, or to protect you from attacks that might be too damaging to guard. It appears you can only summon the Persona up to four times before it enters a cooldown period which leaves you to your own devices for a short time.

Details on whether this game will leave Japan are out of my reach at this point, so if anybody is willing to search for a release date will be greatly appreciated. :] I, personally, am very excited to play this, as I am a big fan of the BlazBlue franchise and absolutely love Persona 3. Hopefully, this game succeeds well.

Is Aksys involved, too? Well, the story might be good, then.

The story is silly, combat looks fun and Kanji is throwing a folding chair at people. My only complaint is that there's no Junpei. They put Aegis, Mitsuru and Akihiko in but no Junpei? Sad Cap'n is sad. Still picking it up though.

Same here. I wanna use the spiked bat. xD

I'll probably use Mitsuru, Yosuke or Aigis based on what I've seen so far. Still don't know who all is in it. :/

Well it's the whole P4 cast. Yu/Souji/Hero, Yosuke, Chie, Yukiko, Kanji, Teddie and Naoto are playable characters and Rise is a commentator. Margaret is in it but I don't know why. Maybe a secret character/boss? The P3 characters that are playable are Akihiko, Mitsuru and Aigis.

All the stages are the different worlds from the Midnight Channel so the Liquor Store, Yukiko's Castle, Kanji's Bath House and so on. There are a few characters that they haven't released.

Did you two beat P4 yet? Because one of the secret characters might be...

Spoiler:
Adachi, because Magatsu Inaba is a map in the game I think

Some ideas for other characters to be in this from P3 are Minato/Hero as a source from the main website said. Himiko/Heroine, Junpei and Koromaru are possible other characters but Heroine is less likely. The rest of the cast is too busy with school to attend. Yukari is apparently in buisness school, Fukka is at a culinary school and Ken is starting middle school. Junpei is apparently playing baseball for college and is traveling to Inaba to play their college baseball team (this is a rumor) which is why he might be playable and Junpei took in Koromaru (another rumor). There has been some reveal as to how the P3 cast is in Inaba. During Mitsuru's back and forth between school and Kirijo, she heard about the tourney and invited Aigis and Akihiko to it. Couldn't find how Aigis was involved but Akihiko is traveling the world to learn more fighting styles and comes to the arena to find out of the other persona users' fighting styles.

I would really enjoy the spoiler idea, especially if he can access some of

I say Shinjuro would be awesome.

Shinjiro would be the Tager equivalent for this game, if they haven't covered that already. I mean, Shinji uses a big damn axe and a bus stop sign, so his movement would be slow. :/

Yeah but Shinji's dead and the game is pretty cannon.

Spoiler:
If Adachi was put in, he must have broken out of prison through a tv so that makes sense.

Honestly, Kanji is the heavy hitter of the game. I mean Take-Mikazutchi looks a bit like Tager. I've seen some gameplay trailers and he's gonna be the heavy hitter as well as Akihiko.

Well, POOP.

Oh well, at least we have mitsuru and aigis. Is it just me, or does Akihiko look different? I've only only played P3P, so I have no idea what his original concept looked like...

Aki is just older, there's no difference in his design aside that he's ripped to shit and is wearing that big gay cape. He's got that big ass scar on his chest which I think is from his fight with the Magician Shadow at the beginning of P3 when it attacked the dorm.


Some new info!

2 new playable characters that AREN'T JUNPEI.

Main Antagonist Labrys, who is the same model robot as Aigis, and her Persona Ariadne

Everyone's favorite elevator attendant Elizabeth! Her persona is Thanatos of the P3 series.

If there's gonna be more characters, it may be DLC. The game did well in Japan as an arcade game. The game comes out for PS3 and 360 on August 2nd. I'll be preordering if it comes with anything that's badass like an art book and soundtrack.

I always try to pre-order mainly out of convenience, but they're including a lot of DLC codes with games recently, I've noticed. At least for a lot of PSP games. :/

Aside from Kanji, I think I'll be playing as Aki and Chie because they were two of my favorites from P3 and P4. Elizabeth seems super fun too.

Yosuke, Akihiko, and Naoto, just as I predicted, I picked my mains before even playing. I also like Yu, and Chie seemed pretty natural as well.

The game is very smooth, much simpler than blazblue, but no less viable.
The timing windows on things like insta-block, emergency recovery, and even special's inputs are very forgiving, yet feel crisp and not sloppy like others...

It's also a tad faster pace than Blazblue, and the ailments ingame are actually well balanced.

This is probably the most smooth fighting gam I've ever played. Not to mention it's got the quirky and well written characters of a Shin Megami Tensei game so it's a combo of wins. I got Skullgirls not too long ago and the combat was awful. Plus it's annoying that the move sets for each of the characters were ONLINE. That's fucking stupid.


So far, Chie has been my favorite to play as. Kanji is still fun but he's so klunky and when I was trying to do some of the Challenges, his attacks shove opponents too far off to get in a good combo. Chie is so easy for me to control and I love her move set. Aki is my second because he's so damn fast and his dodge moves are so awesome.

I don't like playing as Yu, I can't get into the swing of his moves. Yosuke is cool, I love how fast he is. Yukiko is too reliant on long range moves and when someone like Chie or Kanji get close enough, I'm done for. I tried the others out but not enough. I have yet to try Labrys.


I also like Teddie and Chie's new VO's. Erin Fitzgerald (Known for Nazz from Ed, Edd, and Eddy and Erica from Catherine) sounds so much more alive than Tracy Rooney's Chie. She also doesn't sound awkward when shouting her kung-fu screams. I wonder how she's gonna do with the original script in Persona 4: The Golden? Sam Riegel sounds almost exactly like Dave Wittenberg's Teddie but he doesn't try so hard to sound goofy and adorable. It's just the way his voice is and it works. I don't understand the Brookyn dialect for Labrys but Cindy Robinson does a great job at it. I personally would have made her speak normally but it was the director's choice. I'd definitely remember the dialect and have her use it for something else along the lines of a New York character.

Anyway, I love this game. It's fun. And funny...

Et tu Narukami?

*am currently looking for odd jobs to buy this game*

I've already decided that I'm maining the P3 team if I haven't already mentioned that. I will try Yosuke and Yukiko, as well as Labrys cause I'm curious. :]

*applause*

Ah, that's who Chie is now, other than one part I'd say is perfect for her.
When welcoming Yu back I think it sounded really off... other than that it's perfect. Now that I think about it, when her voice gets lower, it does sound like Nazz

And At first he sounded way different when announcing the tournament, but when they meet up with him, I couldn't tell the difference between the two of them. well done by a versatile actor.

All of the reprisals are spot on so far, and I also am a little confused as to why Labrys sounds new york like... but I think she played it perfectly. It was apparent enough to pick up on, but just subtle enough for it not to detract from the portrayal.

So yeah, what Cap'n said.

And I picked up Yu pretty naturally, what were you struggling with?

I dunno, I just can't get into the swing of his style. Granted I only played him in story mode and nothing else. I'll spend more time with him but I'm still trying to use Kanji. I got a little better at combining his moves but his short range is a bit of a downside compared to the rest of the characters.

Tried challenge mode yet? I got to at least 24 with every character I've tried, and in this order.
Yosuke: 27
Naoto: 26
Kanji: 25

BTW, to anyone wondering to get this game or not, If you like smooth fast paced games that are easy to pickup, go for it. If you're looking for the typical SMT:P style, you might not find everything you're looking for (the recent dating sim elements do want IMO but alas it would be hard to manage) but the core experience is invariably derivative. In shorter terms, it is a very respectful adaptation.

I did some of the challenge acts but I got like the basic combos and feel of the characters so I could finish story mode. I'm gonna start getting heavy with it now that I have 100% in it. I''l probably work the most with Kanji, Teddie and Chie. It's funny, my favorite characters from P4 are my best characters.


Have you tried score attack mode? It's fucking retarded for me. The first challenge is Yosuke on CRACK. He's got an unlimited Sukukaja bar up. I was able to take down half of his bar as Aki before getting raped to death. I am just terrible with fighters lol.


Also, Labrys' accent. Now makes perfect sense after playing her story. All and all, I enjoyed the storyline. Probably one of the easiest to follow fighters if you actually played the Persona series. And having Aki, Mitsuru and Aigis in it was like visiting old friends. And what I love is they definitely set up a sequel to happen. It will probably be a few years before it comes out since P4 came out in like... 2009ish? But Atlus takes their time with shit to make gold.

Well, I beat Score Attack mode, but you won't exactly be happy with what awaits you at the end... Boss Elizabeth with Triple HP double SP regain and Higher damage output...

Srsly, don't feel bad at all about score attack. That function in the game is for sadomasochist who won't be satisfied until his brain lies a quivering mass on the ground.

Ya, Persona 4 came out mid '08 so it'll be a while, but I definitely like how the sequel sets up.

spoil at own risk
Spoiler:
The villian is shaping up to be long lost Nyarlethotep from persona 2 with some oddly malicious human sidekick.

Oh dear god! I can't imagine fighting her like that! I had a hard enough time fighting her in P3!

Spoiler:
I was wondering when he'd show up. It was about time they tied the first 2 Persona's into the new games. This may all be a set up to Persona 5 though. I know the P4 team was part of the development team so it's gonna be badass

yeah, She crazy, but I saw someone perfect her with Kanji, pity he lost 2-1 though...

Spoiler:
So, I know Philemon is taking a pretty neutral position lately, but I wonder what all involvement he'll have.
and Is it true He looks like Tatsuya?
