I've never been a huge fan of fighting games, but as a pretty big Persona fan I defiantly plan on getting deep into this game. So far there has been about 13 playable characters announced for Persona 4 Arena from both P3 & P4 (according to the site's wiki). I'm wondering what character you guys are most excited to play as? or if there's a character you think the game would be sorely missing?

Personally out of the announced characters I'm going for Akihiko Senpai. But I really hope they end up putting Yukari in.

I'll probably main Yosuke. Since most of you bombers will take Chie, I'll take the underdog. I like how fast he is and that's usually my preferred fighting style. He also wears headphones while fighting so that's pretty badass.

Elizabeth. She looks cool to play as, with her status effects and heavy reliance on her Persona. If not her, it's probably Shadow Labrys because she's the one main antagonist in the game and I tend to main the bad guys in competitive games.

Chie. You ask this question as if there is anyone else worth playing as...

From the gameplay I've seen Chie seems my style and Chie is awesome so its a win-win for me.

Totally playing as Naoto, she's awesome and her playstyle seems fun. Also probably Yu.

I mean obviously he'll be in it by the console release if Atlus knows what's good for them.

Kanji. Folding chair mania.

Kind of wonder if they'll let you rename Yu in the home versions.

These two since they were my romantic interests when I played the original games. Also, Mitsuru looks hawt.

Either Charlie or Aigis most likely.

Depends how the story mode plays out really. If it forces you to play one character all the time I'll probably stick with that, or if it jumps around from character to character, I'll play as the one I like the most out of that.

Well who plays like Ryu? Cuz that one. Also Chie because she appears to be a rush character.

Man hopefully Yukari is in it. Putting her, Akhiko, and Mitsuru covers all of the good characters in Persona 3. Either way I can't wait to get my hands on it. I love fighting games but haven't payed any of the ones by this company so I'm excited to get in.

Can't wait for this game! An arc fighter seems like the appropriate amount of crazy for a Persona game.

PS. anyone know why my icon has reverted and I'm back down to 1 post count?

@GingerBear: Seriously? Maybe you should ask Dave, Drew, or Alexis. That seems to be a problem.

Is Yukari not going to be in the game? That is madness, why wouldn't she be. I refuse to believe.

Yukiko, also known as the best Persona 4 girl.

Akihiko, hopefully. It'll probably be Yu instead, though.

I always want to play "boxer" types, but usually have a hell of a time actually getting in to do damage.

Chie looks fun as well.

Akihiko seems like my type of guy. Your typical short range rushdown with fast limbs and dashes. Looks a lot like Zenia.

Then again if the game's more Blazblueish, Mitsuru all the way.

Charlie or Aigis. Too bad they're not including Margaret or Igor.

Akihiko Sanada, by default since he has a badass cape and I still prefer Persona 3... Unless they put Yukari in the console version of the game, in which case all bets are off.
