See how the Velvet Room tsundere looks in battle.

Famitsu’s latest online preview for Persona 4 Arena Ultimax provides our first look at the Velvet Room’s Marie in the upcoming fighter.

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax Persona 4 Arena Ultimax

As detailed yesterday, Marie will be available as paid post-launch downlodable content. She uses the Persona Kaguya, and excels at ranged attacks and diversion techniques. She can also take out enemies using weird items from her bag, like an Igor jack-in-the-box. Her special move is “Thunder of the Bound Flame,” in which she dons white clothing and controls fog and thunder to strike the enemy with a one-hit K.O.

    I don’t know if i will get this, i am getting Persona Q though.

    • $61526767

      Persona Q doesn’t come out until November. You have plenty of time to save up, and get Ultimax. Unless you’re interested in the games that are coming out in Aug-Sept-Oct. Then never mind..

      I think, she just listened to ALL Marie’s poems.

      • Ben Kennedy

        Upon reading that I am reminded of that scene in Soul Eater where they read Crona’s poem.

      • ayb_91

        LOL. A good one pal.

      • DrForbidden

        29 hits.

        • Guest

          It sounds like Hamaon or Mudoon to me, or the Instant Kill.

  • Guy Incognito

    DLC… I’m already WAY behind with JOJOs…. Now this?

    • tokyobassist

      At least JoJo’s DLC is only $1.99 for a character.

      • Luna Kazemaru

        atleast this game has alot of content compared to how JoJo was *rolls eyes*

        • PrinceHeir

          JoJo ASB has a lot of content actually.

          Just look at the art gallery, music, customizable taunts etc.

          Problem is that the costumes are hard to unlock so your force to buy energy bars to unlock stuff.

          • tokyobassist

            Screw playing the game. I rather present my argument without knowing what I’m talking about.

        • tokyobassist

          And you know this how? I wasn’t aware Persona 4 Ultimax was already out.

      • Guy Incognito

        There’s that one gold icon on the select screen I can’t figure out who for.

  • BizarreJelly

    I hope she comes with a story mode like Adachi does.

    • ayb_91

      Stop spoiling stuff ,you sicko.

  • Lara Croft

    DLC…. already. I guess the game being developed by Arc System Works. I shouldn’t be surprised.

    • Luna Kazemaru

      you do understand ASW doesn’t have that much control over the content in this game right

      • Manny Being Manny

        Yeah, that’s why ArcSys did all of their normal DLC strategies like selling different colors and announcers in the first game.

        • Luna Kazemaru

          You know what…Its whatever you guys think i’m not even going to go into this…

          • Manny Being Manny

            And lets not even mention that its dual audio, something that Atlus never allows normally.

            • icup ✔️


            • Thatguy

              Yeah, that a good point. Why Atlus don’t using dual audio?

      • OverlordZetta

        You seem to be drastically overestimating how much they don’t though.

        It’s a team effort.

    • Dominic St-Jacques

      Welcome to 7th gen fighting games.

    • Protagonist

      I hate DLC. Its the snake in the gaming industry today, that sucks you for more money. Companies lock content thats already on the disc, and charge you because they want more, shame.

      • Guest

        Well you are not the seller guy… Money is money

        • Protagonist


  • DesmaX

    Her special move is “Thunder of the Bound
    Flame,” in which she dons white clothing and controls fog and thunder to
    strike the enemy with a one-hit K.O.

    I though her special would be reciting one of her’s poems. Dissapointed

    • ayb_91

      Good point indeed !!

    • Anime10121

      You want to read Marie’s poem’s? Be prepared for the shutupyouinconsideratedesmaxface!

  • $61526767

    I hope she gets a small story line. Overall, I’m hype to have her aboard the roster. There should be one last character coming, correct?

  • Ben Kennedy

    I’ve noticed that her unique feature seems to be a weather report thing above her SP bar.

  • ayb_91

    Poor Chie. :(

  • Protagonist

    So I guess this makes her appearance canon now huh? Theodore seems canon as well as I saw him in a scan before.

    • DrForbidden

      It’s been canon since P4G was released.

  • Six

    Best girl is best girl. I’m still on the fence about picking this up, but the story mode sounds a bit more bearable (◉ ε ◉) than the original.

  • Comandante Bushido



    (Marie Marry Me)

  • Eclipse

    Ah, I had a feeling that she might be a zoner.

    I’m pretty hyped to main my favorite girl from the Persona series~

    • Pyrofrost

      While Elizabeth is best girl, I’m definitely happy to see Marie make it ^^

      The only sad part about all this is the lack of Theodore; however, there is still time.

  • dior

    Worst girl

  • Hexodious

    What’s that weather icon in the bottom right picture? Anything worth mentioning?

    • DrForbidden

      Her powers are tied to weather-control, so, yeah, probably.

  • Himiko

    Best girl is here!

  • Fainaru Luna

    Does anybody know if we’ll be getting the collector edition for N/A?

    • DrForbidden

      I don’t think it has been announced. We only know about pre-order bonuses.

  • DrForbidden

    Oooohhhh… pretty.

  • DrForbidden

    ‘Her special move is “Thunder of the Bound Flame,” in which she dons white clothing and controls fog and thunder to strike the enemy with a one-hit K.O.’

    Erm, Sal, that’s just her Kusumi-no-Okami form.

  • MrJechgo

    First look… yeah, a really creepy one XS
    What’s with the pronounced green eyes? Aren’t they grey in the game… when she’s normal at least?

    • DrForbidden

      Good catch. She had blue/grey eyes in P4G when she was ‘normal’. In her Kusumi-no-Okami form, one of her eyes became green/turquoise. Her having both eyes green might be an indication that she is now in full control of her life and powers.

      • MrJechgo

        It’s still creepy since it doesn’t look natural though XS

  • Guest

    There’s a weather icon just above her Skill Point/Power(?).
