New stuff

#1 Edited by metalsnakezero (2269 posts) -
  • Persona 4 Arena DX pack comes with art book, rubber IC card holder with Teddie on it, and a microfiber cloth. Atlus USA better have a spacial edition too!
  • Story events will play out in a visual novel like fashion like Persona 4 was.
  • 4 Characters will be playable in story mode and others will be unlock at certain points. Sounds better than having each character a story line from the start. I wonder if this is like MK style story?
This is exactly what I imagine Chie's room would be like
Don't tell me Yosuke will be hitting on Labrys because she's MINE!

That's not what this means at all and you should probably reread that info. It just means that, initially, in the Story Mode, there'll only be 4 characters available to choose from. Other characters (that have already been revealed) will have their own Story Mode paths unlocked as you play.

We already know, however, that there will be console exclusive characters from past comments from the devs.

@FluxWaveZ: Guess I did :P

THAT'S CHIE'S ROOM!? I love that girl even more more now.

This also gives me hope that the story mode will be nice and long. Or at least long by fighting game standards.

Chie's room just makes me super bummed that she's got a different VA now.

Can't imagine that the story mode will be any good. The roster is limited meaning that either the story will be real short or that we'll have to fight multiple people through each story line. Fighting game story modes are tricky to do, unless your Mortal Kombat 9. Now that's a fighting game! I'm sure the game will be alright, but don't expect the story mode to be anything great gameplay wise. I'm more interested with the interaction between both Persona 3 and 4 characters.

I've got more images.

Kick his ass Chie!
Wait, are they going to explain why Yu is back in Inaba?

Mortal Kombat's story mode was just a long series of fights linked by cinematics.

With 20+ characters. My point is that I would have liked more characters to fight with during story mode.

Not everyone was playable in MK's story mode, and P4U has a smaller roster to begin with regardless of story.

Man, I'm really looking forward to this game after seeing this stuff. More Persona 4 stuff is all right by me.

The story and cutscences will surely be awesome. It'll just suck that the roster is limited and that'll probably limit gameplay during story mode.

The dream fight of Chie vs. Akihiko!, A pretty hefty menu of features, Nanako get to see Big bro again!, and Bromance fight!

@JeanLuc: What do you mean? Yu is back in Inaba because he's visiting Inaba. I think the most important issue is the fact that they're still wearing their Yasogami uniforms.

#17 Posted by JeanLuc (3518 posts) -

@FluxWaveZ: But isn't it only suppose to take place like two months later? So he decides to suddenly ditch school and go chill in Inaba again? And yeah, why is he wearing his Yasogami outfit? Everyone else still goes to that school so it makes since for them but why would he have one?

He's visiting during Golden Week, and he's wearing his 2nd year uniform, while Yosuke has bumped up to third year. Its probably for old times sake! His uniform didn't suddenly evaporate at the end of P4! Gotta Smuggle weapons into Junes and all that.

@JeanLuc: Yeah, it's just two months after Persona 4 but it might take place during a summer break or something. Or maybe he's just visiting during a weekend.

And looking at the pics, Yosuke has his proper uniform with the roman numeral "III" on it for his new grade, but Yu still has one with the "II", so he might be wearing it for the sake of nostalgia? Or just simply as a way to conceal the weapons, again.

Oh man that is awesome.

@mutha3: @FluxWaveZ: Alright, those are fair points. I still think its a bit weird though.
