Confirmed in the latest Famitsu, these two characters (along with normal Labrys) will be joining P4A's arcade version as well as the console versions (most probably).

Dates that they'll be added to Japanese arcades:

  • Labrys: March 22nd
  • Elizabeth: April 5th
  • Shadow Labrys: April 19th

Source

Elizabeth's Persona will be Thanatos and she will have a special move that switches the HP and SP of her opponent.

Elizabeth and Thanatos, huh? Are you thinkin' what I'm thinkin'!?

I'm still waiting for my Shin Chie, Devil Chie, Evil Chie, Super Saiyan 4 Chie, True Chie, Hokage Chie, Chie-ass-Chie, and Bikini Chie.

Labrys and Shadow Labrys? Come on, that's really lame, even if they play completely different.

Not really. She's there for plot purposes and I'm glad they're having her be playable instead of just being an unplayable boss character.

Awesome. Wasn't expecting Elizabeth at all, and I had a small suspicion that Shadow Labrys would be playable.

Hm, I may have rather had Ryoji using Thanatos, but Elizabeth is fine too.

Pfft, Margaret is better. Regardless this good news, I just hope Labrys and her shadow self play different.

Torn on this game. I'm pretty awful at fighting games and wasn't a fan of BlazBlue, but man, it's Persona...

Elizabeth will destroy us all! DO I need to keep switching Persona every second now?

Also nice for Labrys to be confirm.

Yeah, I want more P3 added. I know everyone is older, as reflected in Mitsuru's black leather jumpsuit, but I don't see any reason why these central characters can't be included, too. Still, more is good in a fighting game as long as there's some sense of balance maintained.

I think she'll consider the fight as a date.

I'm guessing these are P3 characters? I'm totally ignorant on the subject...

@TooWalrus: Elizabeth is a Persona 3 character. Labrys is a new character, so essentially a Persona 4 character.

Well, canonically, Margaret is stronger than Elizabeth as she mentions in Persona 4...

Labrys is a P3 character. She was in a Persona 3 CD or something.

Well, a Persona 3 CD that you probably didn't listen is not pretty memorable. Also, am i the only one hoping for Adachi to show up?

Elizabeth's fascination with the human world is great! The dates with her that they added in FES are the funniest scenes in that game, if you ask me.

Plus, Margaret doesn't put out.

Fuck yeah, I've been waiting for Elizabeth to be announced. I'll take this over Yukari any day.

I was hoping for an overpowered Jack Frost to be her Persona though, but Thanatos is cool too. Hope he's better here than in the actual game. Does make me wonder if that means P3 protagonist won't be in the game, but I guess he could still have Orpheus.

@ricetopher: I thought Labrys' Insta-Kill was very good. Looked like she was chopping up five rows of onions without crying! (I don't think she's able to cry, though.)
