    wow…truly epic
    oh,yeah wishing to play this on vita too

  • Raiyu

    Kinda weird that I’m more hype for this than I am Persona 5.

    Probably because we didn’t get any info on it other than an announcement and platform.

  • Elvick

    Still no PS Vita. ):

  • $61526767

    Dat music though. I hope to see more news soon. Especially Adachi being playable.

  • Speedo Redempteur

    And then Adachi came…..

  • Martian Wong

    Is this coming to US as well?

    • Gigus

      Maybe. Arena came to the west, so why not. Arena even made it to evo so its a 85% chance it could.

    • Arcana Gear

      probably, Persona fanbase is quite strong in the west, arena1 sold well, and bieng late gen never prevented persona games coming here.

  • Arcana Gear

    Soo this trailer pretty much confirms that the red haired guy is Yu shadow….. and still want FeMC :V

    • Gigus

      Pardon my ignorance but FeMC: V? I still have yet to play P3 and P4.

      NVM. “Female Main Character”. Usually people don’t abbreviate that.

      • Arcana Gear

        In Persona 3 portable you could chose to be the usual male main character (MC) with blue hair and same history from the P3 game, or the female main character (FeMC) with a slight different story, but different dialogues, and many different social links (you could romance guys… and a child).

        Here is a pic from her and him.

        • Gigus

          *points at my edited comment* Again I’m just not used to people abbreviating “Female Main Character” since thats not a usual norm. This is the internet anyways XD. Saying “Female Protagonists” sounds shorter XP.

        • Budgiecat

          lol I like how you paused when you said child.

          Probably best to leave her in the past due to questionable things like that….

          wtf Japan


  • pekot

    Persona everywhere today
    I’m so happy

  • BizarreJelly

    For the love of god Atlus please do not region lock it this time… The Europe delay for the first one was horrendous.

    • Elvick

      I guess we’ll see. Probably will depend on when they release the English version (and if it includes full Japanese text like the first).

  • kiri25

    Is this not coming to 360 as well??

    • 武神水樹

      360 is dead in Japan

      • Wolf Star


    • Aiddon

      it might get ported to the 360 overseas; then again, Arc System Works didn’t hesitate to screw over 360 Blazblue players

      • Arcana Gear

        To be fair, if it isnt giving them profits… isnt a bad decision to dont port it…. but it’s a shame that fans wont be playing CP.

  • Skerj

    I will never stop loving you Shoji Meguro.

  • kirby755

    ok 1) I’m starting to believe that might be Yu Narukami’s Shadow(Red hair guy). 2) Was that freaking ADACHI!!!! The insane troll is back now and I’m even more interested. 3) I guess everyone can truly face themselves in a battle now *Plays I’ll face Myself Reincarnation Ver*.

  • TheExile285

    I hope they add more than just 3 characters. Anyway, day one.

    • Arcana Gear

      I think they will, if it’s like the previous one they will release info about new characters later… remember when many tought that only a few characters would be in the first? (and were raging cause of Shadow labrys “taking a spot”)

      • Leon_Tekashi

        I do very well. Welp, we learned our lessons since 2 years ago. We’re ready this time.

  • bloodiOS

    I’d like to see them port this to the PS4 sometimes in the future…

    • ExTrooperBrenTurner

      Agreed. Like Arc System Works will, with Guilty Gear Xrd SIGN.

  • Aiddon

    wait, Minazuki doesn’t HAVE a Persona? What’s going on here????

    • zuuum

      imo if you change his hairstyle a little and colour + if you forget the scar you get a…Yu…
      just an idea…

    • $61526767

      For some odd reason, I saw his persona through the stream while they were talking about Persona Ultimax.

      • Aiddon

        except there aren’t any Persona cards under his health bar. Looks like he just doesn’t HAVE a Persona.

        • $61526767

          I’ve re-watched the stream and he had and didn’t have a persona. Kinda weird?.. Anyway, I’m more interested into the story.

          • Guest

            he got two slots, much like Labrys and her counterpart. One with Persona and one without.

            • $61526767

              Already notice that. And what surprises me is he has a counter special. I’m totally gonna abuse that. lol

        • Surgeon of Death

          He doesnt at first but it seems he awakens to it during the game? They showed it in the live stream

          • Aiddon

            I dunno, it seems like he has Persona version a non-Persona version probably to compensate for he Shadow/Regular dynamic. Thing is, I have to wonder why they’re being so coy with showing his Persona as even screencaps make it REALLY difficult to see what his Persona actually IS. That’s what’s really intriguing me

            • Gyro Zeppeli


  • Eclipse

    I see that Adachi has finally made an appearance…

    It’d also be great if they can add Marie to the roster.

    • DrForbidden

      I second Marie!

  • Hatsuaki

    I just hope that they’ll add a console exclusive character in there~

    • Bobby Jennings


  • new_tradition

    I wonder if this will be like Dissidia where this second game still includes narrative from the first game, or if this really is a straight up sequel with only new narrative? I’m still not clear on this…

    Oh yeah: F*CK YES, ADACHI. He’s an a misogynist a-hole, but I loved his character, and I get to beat him down =D

    Though now I want Dojima too. Nanako can be rooting for her Papa :3

    • MrFinalgamer

      if it was like dissida we would be able to play as the P1 and 2 cast (even though they’re like 30…it would be awesome!)

      • new_tradition

        Well I was talking more in the sense that the second Dissidia game, Duodecim, released with the first game’s narrative (the 013 battle).

        I don’t understand if this second P4:Arena game is re-releasing the first game’s story or is only the new content?

        • Arcana Gear

          sequel. New story, new characters, new mechanics.

  • DrForbidden

    Wait, so Minazuki is the TRUE villain here? Or did I misunderstand the video?

  • Bobby Jennings

    Summer is so faaaarrrrrr :(

  • PrinceHeir

    freaking badass ^^
