New Persona 4: The Golden Videos Have Team Attack & Bike Scene Clips

By Spencer . April 23, 2012 . 11:07pm

Atlus released two new Persona 4: The Golden trailers in Japan. One clip focuses on the game’s cast of characters with pop art of Yosuke pulling a trashcan off his head. Check the video above for a look at some of the new team attacks and characters using the moped to travel around town.


The other video is a story trailer with anime cutscenes and a glimpse at Kanji & Naoto’s team attack. There are some spoilers in there so if you skipped Persona 4 for PS2 and have not seen the anime series you may want to skip it!



Persona 4: The Golden comes out in Japan on June 14.

    That’s kind of my point though. After all the content the other ports got, 3 most notably – thus just really isn’t getting all that much.

    Ironically, Catherine is what really got me to start criticizing them.

  • OverlordZetta

    Yeah, this is pretty much how I’m feeling about it. I -like- Persona 4, but there’s just yet to be anything meaty enough about this (yet) to make it worth it again.

    I’m all for it being available again for players that didn’t get it before of course. That’s great.

    • I never got to play Persona 4, so I’d love to get it. But if I had played it, I would totally relate to what you’re saying. Doesn’t really seem like much was added. 

      • OverlordZetta

        Thanks for that – and I hope you do get it, because as I said, it IS a good game. It’s one that any JRPG fan should at least get to try.

        But… yeah.

  • Airidas K

    Ameno Sagiri battle theme,I like it even more than true final boss theme,screw izanami for me AS it the best boss in this game.

     Ah,those memories

  • SuigetsuHiramura

    Becoming more and more like Yu-gi-oh 5Ds every day ^_^

    • jujubee88

      Do not make me think of the horrible things I would do for a good Yu-Gi-Oh and Persona game (in english) for the VITA.

      I would have no shame!

  • Perona

     No, you don’t THINK they deserve it while other people do. Look, we get that you don’t like it but you don’t have to go “ATLUS SUCKS STOP PRAISING THEM” in every single article. It’s annoying.

  • I…I literally cannot stop watching them dance.

  • cj_iwakura

    Pretty sure the Vita easily has space for both. And P3P was a subpar experience, I think everyone who played FES agrees on that.

    • takopako

      i wouldnt doubt that. and i have/played fes, but i still enjoyed p3p for the different experience with the female character…call me a diehard fan, but i honestly enjoyed it, and will most likely enjoy P4G. XD

  • vileBrenman

    Soooo pumped for this game. hopefully atlus usa will announce it at E3 this year. they said smt fans would be excited come E3. so fingers crossed they will announce this crown gem of a vita game.

  • jujubee88

    Those who say that P3P is great because of the new female scenario … yeah, I would NOT buy into that hype. As a first time Persona Player, here is my impression of the female scanrio anyways (going into the fourth block of tartarus): None of the new girls scenarios added seem to have voice acting, the social links are just shoveled from anime looking boys into anime looking girl characters, the moral decisions are more restrictive (as if your character is MUCH MUCH more conservative and charisma-less compared to the male) and, whoever said there are more social links … I am pretty deep into the game and I have yet to find those social links or even had the use for them.

    I guess it is all how you play the P3P meta game but, I consider myself someone who like a story, good moral choices (when presented them) and, def. a huge dungeon grinder. Quite frankly, I kind of have regretted switching my progress in P3P as a boy to a girl, simply because the “extra flavor” is nowhere to be found. I will get back to you all after/near the end game, but I doubt the hype behind the added features behind the “new female scenario” in P3P will live up to the presumed expectations and hype others have been comparing it to in this comment thread.

    As for the new P4TG stuff, I actually look forward to all of it. Meanwhile, I  also agree that this should not just be some port to the VITA and that Atlus should bring out this product with great production value and really offer VITA owners the JRPG they deserve.

    • OverlordZetta

      I don’t think you really can feel the “extra flavor” unless you’ve already completed P3 in the past, honestly. It feels like a far different game, or felt to me, and all the additions are pretty blatantly there – DIFFERENT social links, which are all available early on (barring the male party member ones), being able to control party members, and other kinds of fixes/additions. If you’re just switching back and forth, it probably won’t seem like that big a deal.

      If your problem is “anime looking people” then really you shouldn’t go anywhere near Persona in the first place. There’s virtually no real “moral choices” in either 3 or 4 (these are in 1 and 2 aplenty though) and it’s anime cliches everywhere. It sounds like they’re just not your thing, so yeah.

      • jujubee88

        I totally dig the “anime cliche” things, man. I just literally have not seen any of the hype people have been putting behind the “female scenario” in P3P as if it revolutionizes the experience when it literally seems like different assets in the same engine as playing as the dude (in layman’s terms).

        Like I said, I am going to try and play as the dude again and gather my thoughts. I can already tell that there will be no huge mechanic that changes things (i.e. a cool Myst-like mechanic popping up in story mode that was not in the dudes playthrough). 

        I guess the lesson is, do not buy into what people say blindly. The female scanrio is good for people who have already played P3. If you are new, going either way you get a good game either way and you will see no over top difference if you pause midway through (to be curious about how the opposite sex plays like).

    • vivaluis59

      Have you not heard the new catchy music!!! HOW MUCH MORE FLAVOR DO YOU WANT!! …

       jokes aside, you seem to be alone. I haven’t seen anyone else who thinks that (including myself). But the reason is pretty obvious “As a first time Persona Player” If its your first time how can you tell if its new?  And If you really value a good story p3p has it. But to each his own. 

      • jujubee88

        Haha. I liked the music change. Do you know the name of the woman artist who sings the songs? (Is it more than one singer?)

  • MarkMario

    P4 rave kgo.


  • you making him/her cry

  • Dantis

     I won’t go into spoiler details, but basically, I consider the end of Catherine at the end of Day 8. If you look at that as the conclusion, the story makes sense, and the game works. The 9th day then serves as an offbeat add-on.

    I’m sure that’s not what Atlus intended, but it really does work.

  • Dantis

     I think it’s going to be a great game, but none of this is significant. New cut in graphics? I wouldn’t really consider that a new feature.

    Hating on Atlus for P4G is, in my opinion, dumb. Atlus needs money to make the niche games we all love so much. What other company would finance a game like Catherine?

    On the other hand, I don’t think P4G is quite deserving of praise just yet. I hope I’m wrong, and the Marie interaction is much more significant than it seems, but from what they’ve announced so far the changes are a good amount of tiny things. There is nothing significant, and your list proves that. Out of everything you listed, the only things that I find intriguing are the new music (Because we all love Shoji) and the new costumes (Which aren’t a big deal, but they’re the only new feature I’ll make use of). New fishing mechanics and team attacks? Neat, I guess, but no way near worthy of praise.

  • Dantis

     Also, pretty funny that you missed out the biggest new feature: They’re recording dialogue for a lot of previously unvoiced lines as I recall, and P4G will have 1.5x as much spoken dialogue as P4.

    • Watahashi

      I’m not entirely sure of the details on that. I took it as that there’s enough new content (Marie + Halloween + Beach trip + January, etc.) that it bumps the script up that much. Other than Social Links, I can’t think of any particular scenes that were deathly lacking in spoken dialogue.

  • Persona 4 FTW I didn’t try the game but when I watch the anime it was awesome.

  • Yeah Atlus, I’ll be buying P4: Golden when you release a port of it for the PS3. No way in hell am I buying a Vita just for one game.

  • Evan Groman

    I haven’t been keeping up with the news, so just checking:
    They didn’t bother putting in a female protagonist, right?

    Meh. I suppose that’s why they allowed themselves anime scenes.

  • Vino (Tim N)

    A lot of comments from one guy on this lol.

    I’m excited for this. Although I’ll wait for a Vita price cut, or super sale. No other games excite me for it right now.
    I also want to add, all the hype for this “port w/new content” is a marketing strategy. It is a port/re-release, for a new portable. They really need to push it, and make it flashy to catch new-comers and old fans. And I think it’s working, just not on everyone.

  • Dantis

     I heartily agree. Chances are that I’ll buy it, because I love P4, and my Vita is currently gathering dust (And has been since I bought it). If there are other games out at the same time though, this will get put aside for those.

  • I suspect part of the reason for the lack of free roaming in P3P was the PSP not being able to handle it. The town sections all have rather more complex backgrounds and a good number of random NPCs kicking about too, compared to the pretty simple randomly generated dungeon with a few nondescript blobhands roaming the halls.

    Vita fixes this problem by being stupidly powerful :) Can’t wait to get my copy, had it on preorder since day one.
