 From Siliconera:
 

The demon fighting android will be joined by Akihiko Sanada and Mitsuru Kirijo. Famitsu confirmed both Persona 3 characters are in Arc System Works’ fighting game too.

Well....
 
Well fuck how will they explain that via storyline? @_@

Eff yeah Akihiko. Love that guy.

Mitsuru is okay too I guess... but to hell with her, Akihiko is so much better.

Who the fuck cares about the story for the game? Anyways Akihiko is a logical choice, dude is a boxer. Now they have to get Shinji in the game and were all good.

You guys seen the scans? Mitsuru looks pretty silly, but Aki is fighting in his shorts like a champ.

I only add that because they made a big deal out of this all being Canon. If this is all just fanservice they should have dropped anything dealing with the story. That is all. Cause if that is the case we can even make room for FMC/MC of Persona 3 which is all i really care about.

SWEET! Now all we need are Koromaru and Shinji and we'll be all set! (Well, assuming Adachi's in there too.)

Can't happen since Shinji's dead.

Actually given that both Mitsuru and Akihiko are likely working for Mitsuru's company they have nothing better than to drop into a TV.

I don't think we're allowed to post scans on the site. Check on google, or send me a PM.

NONE OF THOSE ARE THE P3 PROTAGONIST. I WASN'T ACTUALLY EXPECTING HIM TO BE IN BUT GODDAMMIT. 
 
Also, why are people freaking out about how this makes no story sense? Why does this make no sense relating to the Persona canon?

#23 Posted by Devoid (429 posts) -

Akihiko! But more than that, shirtless Akihiko.

..What?

#24 Posted by Cathryn (547 posts) -

Pretty excited to be Akihiko and Mitsuru. Like them both and was hoping for more P3 characters besides Aegis (who I generally don't like all that much).

@Catolf: I'll be interested to see if they even try to justify it story-wise at all. They may just not bother explaining.

#25 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19354 posts) -

So Akihiko and Mitsuru get their ultimate Personas, but the Persona 4 gang don't. It's almost as if, in canon, Narukami didn't befriend any of them fully, which is weird as at least Teddie's supposed to have his other Persona and not Kintoki Douji. I wonder if the Persona 4 cast's Personas will evolve in the anime. 
 
Also, Akihiko should put his shirt back on.

#26 Posted by AngelN7 (2970 posts) -

Well that´s awesome the more characters the better, but they might as well include the whole SEES team except for Junpei he just suc... Kidding Junpei is cool.

#27 Posted by AxleStukov (114 posts) -

Story wise these two make the most sense actually, they were already seniors during P3 and graduated at the end of the game. Mitsuru was already taking college level courses during her high school years too, so she's free. She's probably tagging along with Aigis, there to investigate the weird incident in Inaba, and as we all know, where there's Mitsuru - There's her pet sla- I mean Akihiko. Akihiko was a good fit anyways being a boxer. Junpei is probably off doing his own thing / going to college, same with Fuuka and Yukari. Koromaru is likely with one of those three or just hanging out at the shrine on port island, and Ken should be starting his first year of high school.

#28 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19354 posts) -
@AxleStukov: Well if we're going to analyze it that way, why is Yukari not involved since she's roommates with Aigis and Aigis is in Inaba? Aigis is in college too. Plus, they retired their Evokers, so it would take something big for them to bring them back out, I would think.

Mitsuru?

OHGODYESI mean, awesome. I approve of this.

If he doesn't show up as some sort of hidden/boss character at the end of arcade or story mode, I don't know what I think about this game.

Mitsuru will just execute us all!

#35 Posted by AxleStukov (114 posts) -

No need to worry about executions, since it's an actual battle she'll be too busy trying to use Marin Karin instead of doing something useful.

#36 Posted by ArbitraryWater (11799 posts) -

So will Mitsuru randomly use Marin Karin? Because that's the only way it can be true to the game.

#37 Posted by TehFlan (1944 posts) -

Excellent. I'll be playing as Akihiko.

Right, I was thinking of Mitsuru. Either way... I've always liked the P4 characters better. They seemed a little more like believable teens than in P3 I feel. Certainly less moody in a kind of depressing way. Their issues were more relatable in a way.

#40 Posted by Vexxan (4623 posts) -

Great, the two most awesome characters from P3. Can't wait to see what kinda of fighting styles they'll be using.

Every time I think of Akihiko, I think of "I've regained my honor."  

  

According to the so far translated character profiles, Akihiko and Mitsuru are now college students working for some organization. However an item is stolen from Mitsuru so she and Akihiko go to Inaba to recover it.

#44 Posted by WatanabeKazuma (989 posts) -

Akihiko makes sense, not so sure about Mitsuru but I'd have to see how they both look in game.

Yeah thats what I was thinking. I mean if they wanted to do just a fighting game they could leave out the story you know?

Arc System Works is taking care of the fighting aspect of the game. Atlus is taking care of the story. They've already said this a while ago and they've also said they're taking the story part of the game seriously.

Aren't they both voiced by the same guy, why don't they add Vincent from Catherine too.

@ma_rc_01: No, Kanji is voiced by Troy Baker and Akihiko is Liam O'Brien
