The Persona series has always been filled with heart breaking moments. Its one of the few games that I feel earns those moments due to the care they give to their characters. However with Persona 4 Arena I wasn't really expecting much. Its just more Persona 4 with some P3 characters. Its basically just fan-service with some contrived story right? I mean they do add new interesting ideas about the universe, and you learn more about the P3 characters which is nice. Like I said, some nice fan-service.
But then you get to Labrys' Story...
Let me start by saying I was unsure of Labrys as a character. She seemed like an Aigis clone. I thought her choice of accent was weird. I didn't really care about her, I just wanted to see the characters I love.
ALL OF THAT SHIT I TAKE BACK! In the hour or so of her story I not only grew attached to her, but I felt so emotional about her. Like Nanako dying level of emotion! The converations with #24, the little girl she wanted to meet, finding out the reason she was Student Council President; All heartbreak! She is so far from an Aigis clone. I even dig her accent now.
Atlus, you are masters of your craft.
