Does This Game Spoil Persona 4?

#1 Posted by obscurefan (282 posts) -

Hey folks, I've got my copy of Persona 4 Arena reserved and I'm looking forward to it since I was a huge fan of Persona 4. But here's the thing, my girlfriend is just now playing through Persona 4 for the first time and she's enjoying it, but I'm worried that when I get P4A it might spoil too much for her. So since I see a few people on the site have gotten the game already I figured I'd ask the main thing I'm concerned about, does this game reveal who the killer is in P4?

The game doesn't namedrop the killer/final boss 99% sure on that, but it does do a refresher course on a few things, and the Heaven dungeon's victim is spoiled.

Its probably enough that if you want to keep her spoiler free I'd be careful playing it around her.

Even after all the years of coming to this site, I still have no fucking clue what Persona is.

RPGs about kids in high school that fight supernatural shit by summoning "Persona" which are basically mythical creatures or gods. There you go. Also, Junes.

As a direct sequel, I would definitely expect spoilers of some sort if you play the story mode.

Also you talk to teenagers/ old farts/ a fox/ a teddy bear suit/ a diseased young man/ a robot/ your younger cousin about their problems so the demons inside your head level up more when you fuse them together.
