Persona 4 Arena Easter Eggs, Again

#1 Edited by Make_Me_Mad (3102 posts) -

List last time was:

-Catherine Calender on Yu's bedroom wall, Yosuke has a bike with an ATLUS label on the side, and what appear to be Nickelback and Linkin Park albums on his CD rack.

-the word TESTED appears at least twice in Chie's story mode. What does it mean? Probably nothing, but whatever, it was worth mentioning.

-Rise makes a pretty good Guilty Gear reference in her announcing before matches sometimes. I hear she also does a Blaz Blue reference, but never played much of that game myself.

-Akihiko's arcade mode also includes a Guilty Gear reference with the "Heaven or Hell" thing.

Now, list some more if you noticed them! And remember, don't mention the Endurance Run! Getting off topic is a pretty serious problem, guys.

Edit: And I'm bad at picking up on these things, so I don't actually have any to add myself. I just made this so there would be a place to put them if someone did catch one.

Haha Nickelback and Linken Park CDs? That's awesome.

I've noticed on the stage that defaults to Naoto and Kanji (the street with the bus stop and convenience store) has a silhouette of a man holding a lighter sitting on the bus stop bench. A possible P2 nod.

The true ending to Naoto's story has her typing on a laptop that has a logo similar to the Sony VAIO.

The desktop on the computers that are used in a few story modes look like Windows desktops.

I've never played a guilty gear game. Can someone explain the references or do they have a video or something?

In Guilty Gear, matches begin with the phrase "Heaven or Hell! Round (Number). Let's Rock!" In place of the more standard "Round (Number). Fight!"

@Hailinel: Ha such a simple explanation!

#8 Posted by Make_Me_Mad (3102 posts) -

@Nottle: Basically, the Rounds in Guilty Gear always started with the announcer saying "Heaven or Hell, Round 1! Let's Rock!". Rise can say the same thing to start a match off, and during Akihiko's arcade mode, before he fights Chie, he questions her plan to simultaneously kick him to heaven and send him to hell by saying "Heaven or Hell... which is it?". Since Persona 4 Arena is made by the same guys who made Guilty Gear and later Blaz Blue, it's a call back to their roots.

I noticed that the TV's in the real world are shark TV's... not a huge easter egg but I would buy a TV by shark

Hey guys, there's a Jack Frost in Charlie's room. IT'S REALLY HARD TO FIND.

But more seriously the mech underneath the Jack Frost is a reward you got after a side mission. Kind of a easter egg.

I'm 97% positive I head Rise refer to round as 'rebel' like blazblue

Yep!

I also caught sight of Teddie's Alice dress in Yosuke's room.

I know Yosuke's place was where Teddie stayed in the game, but the thought of his dress just somewhere in that room is kind of creepy.

Teddie wears it in one of his win poses, actually.

Does Teddie still live with Yosuke? I'm just imagining he he goes over to Yosuke's and brings the dress for one reason or another.

Yeah, he still lives with Yosuke, and he still works at Junes as a costumed mascot. He even jokes at one point that they sleep in the same futon, though Yosuke is quick to point out that's a lie.

If you beat story mode as Chie without taking any damage, you fight Sheng Long!

Damnit I need to get this game.

Yosuke has a poster of a J-Pop group that appears to be a riff on AKB48.

The Tested sticker is real obvious in Chie's room and is probably nothing, but there's also a bomb-shaped sticker in the same scene, usually covered by the dialogue boxes.

Pictures of the Catherine wallpaper?

I noticed the Linkin Park album too (but its the really lame one). So one of them's also a Nickelback album? Yosuke has bad taste in music. Now I am so curious what the other 3 are.

the plaque above that closet says "Teddie's room"
 
Dude lives in Yosuke's closet. Where else can he go?

It's about time people started realizing that.

I don't know why, but that's adorable.

@Hunter5024: One is the 2008 Grammy album.

The Alice dress is still there too. Also Teddie "joked(?)" about sleeping in the same futon as Yosuke.

Could be worse. He could be Chie.
