Considering the arcade version of Persona 4 Arena has been released in Japanese arcades today, I thought it would be a good idea to have a thread dedicated to footage of the game that people find interesting/entertaining/whatever.

I was thinking of just making this a thread for live streams, but I don't know if there'll be enough of those before the console release so I've decided to encompass all kinds of footage.

Starting this off, here's a live stream of the game being played: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/naka-joy-stream

Teddie's baseball bat move looks ridiculously awesome.

Random stuff I've gotten from this first live stream:

  • P3 character vs. P3 character = Heartful Cry as theme played
  • P4 character vs. P4 character = Reach out to the Truth as theme played (I'll Face Myself -Battle- might have been a better fit)
  • Each character has their own theme song
  • Character dialogue will change depending on who they fight
  • Human Teddie appears briefly during his "Burst" move (and during one of his win poses). Also, cross-dressing Teddie appears as well.
  • Kanji is hella powerful

Man, Teddie is so OP! He's got some great little moves that seem to make him rather versatile.

I suppose I should expect no less. Everyone loves Teddie.

(the backgrounds are also fantastic)

Also, I've learned that there are only actually 4 characters: Kanji, Teddie, Chie and Mitsuru.

@FluxWaveZ: Sometimes there's Yosuke, too.

But the character lineup looks like Kanji, Kanji, Mitsuru, Kanji, Teddie, Kanji, Yosuke, Chie, and Kanji.

@FluxWaveZ: haha. Yeah, they are playing more for real than just playing to show everything off. Since they're paying for each match, they seem unwilling to try out all of the characters just yet.

You can tell people are getting bored with seeing the same match over and over again because the chat has turned into us just blurting out wrestling references.

Oh snap. Good point. Not sure what music plays in mirror matches, but that'd be perfect.

Oh wait, so sorry. Yeah, "Reach out to the Truth" plays even during mirror matches, as it was playing when there was a glorious Kanji vs. Kanji match.

Also, here's a video of Mitsuru vs. Naoto. Not live, though...

I've recognized all of the music so far, but many are definitely very remixed. So, you'll get moments of the original interspersed in the new.

Hm? Like what? For instance this weird new theme Chie  was never in the original game. I only started watching recently, though.

It varies match to match, but even the new themes have moments of the old themes.

Maybe it's just because I've been listening to the Persona music lately, but I definitely hear them in the music in the game. I don't remember the name of all of the songs, but there are definitely original music influences.

Fuck yes. I love that track but have never actually played through the part where you hear it.

Also, I've learned that there are only actually 4 characters: Kanji, Teddie, Chie and Mitsuru.

So, cue everyone using those all the time? Ugh. I might just focus on someone other than those cos I'm hipster like that :P I don't have enough internets to watch that stream but is Yukiko not that great then? Cos her special was hella powerful so I figured she'd be pretty decent. I guess she's too fragile.

Oh, man. They should've added Shadow alt. costumes for the P4 characters. That would be awesome.

@Neurotic: Every character's fine (I presume). Like always, some are more noob friendly than others and it also varies depending on the player. A Yukiko player is currently getting bodied by Kanji; the latter character is also probably easier to use.

Chie used Glactic Punt, her insta-kill move, when she was right about to lose to Kanji and when everyone was rooting for her. The chat exploded. Beautiful.

@FluxWaveZ:

....

My goodness.

THIS IS THE BEST GAME OF ALL TIME.

...

I was just watching the stream, and Chie, with 1/20 of her life bar left in the final round, performed mother-loving Galactic Punt and sent Kanji into the stratosphere for the victory! O_O

I am now 100% sold on this game. That was unequivocally amazing.

It really is funny; after that Galactic Punt Kanji has never been seen again even though he was constantly partaking in fights.

That moment was super hype. Chie had literally no health left, it was the match point, and she galactic punts Kanji, which I didn't even know was possible. So fucking hype.

Whn you use Galactic Punt in a character, he can't be used anymore. It's really an insta-kill.

I like how "Fog" (or "Mist") plays during those insta-kill moves. It adds to the dramatic.

Dunno if this is a fake or not, supposedly this is the halfway boss for Yu and Naoto's arcade mode, possibly others. If I find out I'll give an update.

I knew about this, but where did you hear that Shadow Yu is the halfway boss for Yu's and Naoto's arcade mode? I'm not calling fake just yet, but I'm not too sure it's legit either.

Considering that Yu never even had a Shadow in P4, I'm not sure why he'd have one now. I'm thinking this is fake until proven otherwise.

It's not fake. He's confirmed to be a mid-boss for Yu and Naoto.  (And probably a few others.)

Confirmed where? I'm not surprised though. I don't actually think it's a "real" Shadow.

@metalsnakezero: Does Mist (the song from the Izanami battle) actually play every time one of those is used or is that the uploader doing some editing? I thought it was cool at first but it's a little jarring just starting up all of a sudden like that.

Yu using Myriad Truths is pretty awesome as is Galactic Punt and Akihiko's Persona being bigger than the Earth. Teddie saluting his Persona as blasted off was pretty damn funny too.

I think its clever as it coherent to the series and it is a fitting music score for a incredible fight move.

Apparently Shadow Yu is in fact T. Bearson, who is actually Shadow Labrys in disguise.

So that explains that.

It seems that much like Catherine, Atlus wants to avoid the propagation of story elements for Persona 4 Arena. Because of this, several of the videos in the OP, mainly from the "Arcade Mode" section, have been removed.

Guess I can understand that. At least it isn't the full story like what we will get in the console versions.

I do hope there's more to the story in the console version, because I already know way more about the arcade story than I wanted to.

@BigChief:I wouldn't worry about that, there definitely is more to it. The true individual behind all of the events in P4A is hinted at but not revealed and it seems that many of the arcade stories end in some kind of cliffhanger.
