Bumbling detective wunderkind also to get his own storyline.


Leaks for this week’s Famitsu are starting to roll in and top of the pile is word that Tohru Adachi will be a playable fighter in Atlus and Arc System Works’ upcoming Persona 4 Arena Ultimax.

Available as DLC that will be bundled with first-print run copies of the game in Japan, he’s set to join the fray using his Persona Magatsu Izanagi and will have his own story-related content as well, dubbed “Episode Adachi.”

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax will launch for PlayStation 3 in Japan on August 28, with a North American release planned on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this fall.

Thanks, Hachima Kikou and Re: Zaregoto.

    Who wants to talk about murders!?

    About damn time. He should have been in P4A, honestly. Let’s try to keep spoilers out of here though for those that aren’t familiar with his background/story.

      It is over man. Spoilers are all over the place. You may check above. :/

      • TetsuyaHikari

        Yeah, I figured someone would do it anyway. It happens. I have a couple of friends on PSN that play these games without actually playing the RPGs though since they seem to like the fighting games, but hate Persona RPGs, lol. So yeah… They may not want to hear about Adachi’s past until they get the game :p

      This content contains instant-kill spoilers. Please, don’t read it if you haven’t played P4/P4G.

      You should have held your horses a bit you know. >_>

      • MrFinalgamer

        Well this is the second sequel to P4, so that was bound to happen =P

    If Adachi doesn’t have a throw where he kicks the opponent into a TV there is literally no point in having him

      If Adachi doesn’t have a win quote that’s either “Bitches and Whores” or “Now who wants to talk about murder?” reality will make less sense.

    Finally! I can main the character i always wanted to use. Now that makes Ken & Koro (paired), Rise, Adachi. Then that would confirm another character coming soon. I assume that mystery he/she character will be playable after launch.

  • Bobby Jennings

    Always wanted to play this guy.

  • new_tradition

    I wonder…Does this open the way for more DLC characters? Or is Adachi’s DLC gonna be more like a lame unlock that’s already in the actual game data?

  • MrKappa

    Just about everyone was calling this guy as day one on disc dlc and it seems that was a swing and a hit.
    This is probably ASW employing their BB tactics for Atlus.

    Not too much of a problem since he is essentially free if you are buying at launch much like Terumi in BB but I am also expecting one more character who will be actual dlc like Kokonoe was. Maybe Margaret?

    • Bobby Jennings

      I’m waiting for Margaret to be confirmed.

  • Ninja

    Oh god yes.

  • Creed1217

    So hyped
