Velvet Room resident to join Marie and Elizabeth?

Margaret might be the next playable character in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax.

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax Persona 4 Arena Ultimax

During a demo event at Shinjuku Biccamera in Tokyo, test players were awarded a clear file poster of the game. The artwork is the same as that of the game’s box art, but there are two slight modifications.

First, to the upper right, under Labrys and above Mitsuru, the latest playable character Marie has been added.

And then, to the upper left, under Kanji and above Adachi, you’ll see the Velvet Room’s Margaret, a character who has not been confirmed playable.

Could Margaret be next in line for a character announcement?

Thanks, 4Gamer.net and NeoGAF.

    I am happy.

  • Kuro-Law

    Since were doing rumors apparently Disgaea 5 2015. Real or Fake?

    • Six

      Well, they are supposed to be showing off a PS4 JRPG at TGS. Dunno about that image though.

      I hope it’s real, because I really like those character designs.

      • Kuro-Law

        Looks pretty sweet.

        • Six

          I just hope their personalities are as good as their designs. I loved the first two games, but the casts in 3 and 4 left something to be desired.

          • Anime10121

            You didnt like Valvatorez? BLASPHEMY! I should throw sardines at you ಠ_ಠ

            • Six

              He was a billion times better than Mao, but I really didn’t like the wolf dude.

              The original game still has the best cast, and 2 is good just because it has so much Etna.

              • Anime10121

                Oh his yaoi lover :/

                Yeah I can totally understand that…
                I can definitely agree with you on 1’s the best though, and cant really say no to your reasoning for liking 2 either (can never have enough Etna)!

    • Jesse

      Well, the card itself is real; it’s a summer greeting card from Nippon Ichi. No idea who the characters are on it are, though. So it MIGHT be for Disgaea 5, since apparently, they’re sent out to tease upcoming games.

      • Solomon_Kano

        Yea. They always tease games with their greeting cards. That’s how we got our first look at GFP and their New Year’s card for this year had a new character in it as well.

    • DesmaX

      If you look at it in a certain angle, you could see that scarf of his looking like a 5

      • Kuro-Law

        Crap I just realised that. Ok D5 confirmed

  • articuzwolf

    yoshitsune as her persona!
    still waiting for Shadow Makoto for DLC :|

    • $61526767

      Everyone really wants to play door jesus that badly…? I swear, I hope they don’t bring him back. Regardless as DLC.

      • articuzwolf

        as a shadow to taunt the P3 cast…and come on, we can’t let Narukami gets all the glory and girls

        • $61526767

          Narukami’s glory should end very soon. PQ / P4D should be his last game to show off his never ending swag. Maybe in the future we could see another Arena game with a written story that tells P3MC coming back. For now, you can see a conversation between Elizabeth & Labrys in space. Depending where the final battle takes place, or how everything close up.

          In my opinion, I’d just want to see how everything relates to dancing all night. As well as whoever is the malevolent entity. :p

          • MrFinalgamer

            Malevolent entity = Nyarlathotep, its quite obvious, really.

          • articuzwolf

            doubt it…P4 is Atlus and fans darling…There will be more P4 stuffs in the future, at least a cameo in the future games

            And I don’t want Makoto to come back…*yeah looking at you Tidus /smirk* thus I would like to see him at least in Shadow form because it’s easy way to bring him back without actually “bring” him back…

            • $61526767

              Assuming what ideas can come into their heads after giving us another fighting game, dancing game, slot machine and finally gives us a game with P3 x P4 characters.

              Ultimax is the end of the Arena series. They could make a story out of this.. but rather end it here. I would like the idea to see P1 and P2 characters have their action. But they are probably older and more skillful persona users.

              • MrFinalgamer

                Not to mention, they can all use multiple personas, since they got their power straight from Philemon, and did not force it out (P3) or…because reasons (P4)!

              • articuzwolf

                won’t get my hopes high about P1 and P2…among the essential trinity member in Atlus’s P-team (Hashino, Soejima, and Meguro) only Meguro had experience working on P1 and P2 (as a composer nonetheless)…so the chance of P1/P2 stuffs in the future is not zero but quite slim

  • Hatsuaki

    Margaret playable would be a dream come true, yes please!

    • $61526767

      Its gonna happen regardless. I’m just curious how strong she’ll be against Elizabeth. Two OP velvet attendants. Its gonna be chaotic to choose a main. SOO many characters to choose from.

      • Hatsuaki

        Mhmm, that cover really gives off the idea that there’s a bunch of characters to choose from. We’ve come far.

        • $61526767

          Adachi / Aki / Sho are possibly the only characters I want to learn. I’m probably gonna drop Yu/Yosuke. Still hope we get some more DLC characters.. a man can dream. I want P2 characters…*sigh*

  • icup ✔️

    can i has #team_dojima?

    • Kuro-Law

      Nobody touches precious nanako!

      • Samsara09

        Sister complex kingpin indeed.

  • http://www.gameanyone.com/DukeVerde DukeVerde

    Does Gemtasu really need more rumours, maybes, and mights?

    • MrFinalgamer

      This is not another smash fiasco. For starters, theres visual proof that the rumor could be real. What’s so wrong about posting about rumors? Other websites post them, and when they’re wrong, they keep posting rumors, and also are more careul on what to post.

      • http://www.gameanyone.com/DukeVerde DukeVerde

        “What’s so wrong about posting rumours?”

        You sort of answered that question yourself. :P

        • Karysonson

          Get out.

    • insanekyo

      This is really strong evidence that Margaret is the next character. So this is not your run of the mill rumor.

    • Samsara09

      Well,rumor is information,even if it can’t be inicially proved.It’s good to know what people are thinking and talking about.

      Second,there is proof.

      Third,just because people bitch when the rumor they so believed turns out to be a hoax,doesn’t mean we have to stop discussing rumors.

    • Anime10121

      Why the hate dude, he said MIGHT (keyword), same as in the Smash article, Sal never said anything was confirmed. Its not his fault if folks fail to read what he writes instead of only what they want to :/

  • Martian Wong

    I want Minato…

    • Sae-Won Yoon

      Get in line, buddy

    • MrFinalgamer

      Do anyof you remember what dead means? His soul will be liberated, because friendship, but his body is rotten full of maggots. It would make mor sense for Kei Nanjo to be playable. Granted, he would be on his 30s, but would make more sene, than a dead guy (specially because the Nanjo works/ed with the Kirijo group).

      • Martian Wong

        Perhaps Elizabeth managed to save him from the beast?

        • MrFinalgamer

          Like I said, its incredibly obvious that he’ll be liberated, because friendship (with a slice of deus ex machina), but that only means his soul would be free. I don’t think souls can fight.

      • Martian Wong

        And by the way, dead means pretty much nothing in Video games. I lost count how many times did I kill Sigma in Megaman X series. He kept coming back.

        • MrFinalgamer

          It all comes down to context. When a DC character dies, no one cares,because he will come back. When a GOT character dies, you feel sad (or happy), because you know they’re dead. If someone is dead in the Persona series, it means you’re dead (unless your name is Nanko, then you have friendship on your side, making you immune to death!).

          • Ciphermask

            Don’t forget Minato used the power of friendship (with a little Death thrown in) to become immune to death when fighting Nyx’s true form. Does that make Nanako as powerful as him? (Joking of course)

      • vileBrenman

        Yes finally someone that is speaking sense. I think its so annoying that people think the p3 protag can just come back from the dead. Unless maybe they made a vessel for his body like maybe an Android for him… But they would have to find a way to free him and find an alternative method to seal back nyx

        • Martian Wong

          It is not so much about sealing Nyx but prevent Erebus from reaching out to Nyx.

          • vileBrenman

            Well yeah. But still Nyx is the one that destroys the planet Erebus is the one that calls her but still they would have to find a way to stop that from happening

            • Martian Wong

              Perhaps they can find a way to do so.

        • Samsara09

          You are underestimating Atlus.If they want Minato/Makoto to be playable,they will find a means to do it.
          Their pen will decide what will happen,what is canon and what isn’t.

          Don’t be so arrogant as to think that your feeble logic dictates what they will do and what they can’t.

          if Makoto/Minato is playable,so be it.If he isn’t,so be it.

          • Guardian Byakko

            This is what I think as well. I mean hell they made Elizabeth, Marie, and Adachi playable so possibilities are endless.

        • Bobby Jennings

          If it wasn’t possible for him to come back, then Elizabeth wouldn’t have left.

      • ThatGuy3190_7

        This is exactly what I had said to someone earlier this week. Hahaha.

      • pixxxelz

        Funny you say that xD

          Don’t play with my emotions like that! ;_: (he’s not even my favorite character in P1, or 2…although he came close in 1)

        • Sae-Won Yoon

          0/10

          Almost had me going there

  • Bobby Jennings

    YES MARGARET

  • Samsara09

    Theodore is left.

  • Guest

    Fuuka next please!!

  • PrinceHeir
  • Comandante Bushido

    Sold

  • new_tradition

    I can’t help but look at all the gaps in the original image now. Trying to figure out how many more characters might pop up if Margaret getting in turns out to be true xD

    • $61526767

      Well, we’ve seen Marie on the poster. Now she ended up being playable. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see Margaret playable. My guess would be after the trailers of Akihiko and Mitsuru. We should see Margaret’s Famistu scan. Not to mention two of them will have their trailers shown on Thursday.

  • ThatGuy3190_7

    Can Theo be next please?

  • pixxxelz

    Sweet, if this is true her insta kill should be either morning star or hassou tobi since megidolaon is Elizabeth’s

  • SOLOmio

    Look at that guy showing his abs! Just hope that the hero of p3 appears in the conclusion of the P4 arena series.

  • The Watcher

    This game went from a BBCT to a BBCP jump in character roster!

  • Jake_Indiman

    Sweetness!
