Chie’s Story From Persona 4: Arena Has Her Chase A Man With A Red Mantle

By Spencer . May 14, 2012 . 1:30pm

Atlus shared snippets from Chie’s Persona 4: Arena storyline and surprisingly she doesn’t beat up Yosuke in any of them. The two characters enter the TV world after rumors spread about the Midnight Channel. While Yosuke runs into the protagonist, Chie has to hunt down a man wearing a red cloak. Hmm.. I wonder who that could be.


Persona 4: Arena comes out on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in August.

    Is Rise playable yet?

    • Shadowman

      No. I don’t think she’ll ever be playable.

  • Linhua

    … ahaha… go get ’em, Chie~

  • Locklear93

    “surprisingly she doesn’t beat up Yosuke in any of them.”

    Man, talk about wasted opportunities…

    • Yosuke probably was careful his time around with his Trial of The Dragon rental.

      No one gives a memorable Critical Hit to the nads other than Chie.

  • Xapth

    The kung fu fighter versus the boxing fighter, oh ho ho.

    Still keeping my fingers crossed for special unlockable characters, such as the other Persona (1/2/3) protagonists, or maybe cross universe cameos like Demi-fiend or Serph.

  • Dyne

    that ok, we can beat Yosuke up later

  • Shadowman

    Do anybody else think Chie and Yosuke make good couple’s?

    • Göran Isacson

      I say thee nay.

      Which has nothing to do with the fact that I made the MC romance Chie when I played the game or anything. Because that would be petty and pathetic of me. And I am certainly not petty or pathetic, I’m just saying that, you know, if I WERE that kind of person I’d take his balls for touching my kung-fu waifu.

      oh god i am that petty and pathetic.

    • LynxAmali

      Kanji and Rise are the other couple.

      Leaving “Sherlock” and “Watson” to be a couple, if you catch my drift.

      Yes, I ship that pairing. DEAL WITH IT.

      • Shadowman

        Oh you mean Naoto and Kuma nice paring ;)

        • LynxAmali


          See pic. I was referring to Naoto and another character. Close enough though.

          • Shadowman


    • Oh absolutely. That’s my OTP Persona 4 pairing. (I like Kanji/Naoto too.)

    • Huh. I’d think I would ship them because they’re both my favorite characters, but I actually think they would be better as relatives, like siblings or cousins. This mostly stems from the fact that I thought they were cousins for the longest time when I first played P4 years ago, though, lol. Because of that, now I’m just weirded out when people pair them up. XD

      Also, Chie/Kou is my OTP, and no one can tell me otherwise. NO ONE.

      Also also, Yosuke is just doomed to be forever alone because he has the worse luck ever with women and with life in general, the poor thing. xD

    • Well, I don’t mind tht…..But Chie loves Yuu……  And Naoto has her eye set on Yuu….. Yosuke and Kanji have the worst luck.

      • Shadowman

        Yukiko belong Yuu and that’s final.

        And I have spoken!!!

  • ‘reads title’

    Datz a shame, dat would have been rather orky!

    but we all can’t act propa ork like!

  • Muffum

    I don’t even remember if this has appeared in any of the previous story snippets, but I must say I am very pleased by the return of Backside of the TV.

  • rurin

    haha I immediately thought Akihiko when I saw this article too xD
    But don’t the protagonists in P4 already know Akihiko?

    • hermenjart

      Nah, Akihiko had long graduated by the time the P4 team visited Gekkoukan. I think the only named character they met there was Chihiro.

      • rurin

        Really? I thought he could be recruited though…?
        Sorry, I’ve never played P4 >.<

        • hermenjart

          Sadly, no, Akihiko doesn’t appear at all in the original P4.

          • Nathanael Chu

            Nor does anyone important in any way. 

            Especially not MC, since he’s dead.

  • Göran Isacson

    One cool idea I had would be if this game could be somehow combined with Persona 4 Golden, so that the social links you fulfilled in that game somehow get to continue in this game- your romances, your friendships, whether or not you poured all your time into working at the daycare or folding envelopes etc… and if I can get REALLY greedy, importing your P3P save files into the Vita will have THAT games decisions affect Arenas storyline as well!

    But alas- that would probably be WAY too much work for ArcSys to do. A cool idea, but WAY too much work.

  • Ben Sylvia

    Well OBVIOUSLY it’s Vincent Valentine….

  • Fsteak?

    One of the advertisements before the clip was coincidentally fitting.

  • RmanX1000

    Need some more english clips ATLUS T^T

  •  Akihiko to Chie
    “No, it is YOU who is lacking in form and discipline.”

    •  In fists? In kicks, likely not.

    Akihiko VS Chie

    Heaven or Hell!
    Duel 1!

  • boundries_san

    Red cloak??? Nebiros lol.^^

  • Guest

    This game needs the protagonist from SMT Nocturne just because I said so

  • Akihiko: Not fair u guys summon persona naturally……. HeyIFoundaFsteakEatingGreenMonster.


    Yosuke: I hope I am safe this tim-
    P4 cast: How you wish tht to happen…..

  • Yuri

    It just seems weird for Yosuke to beat on the P4Protag and win. Unless they set it up as a friendly sparring match only then will it make some sense to me. 

  • Red cloak?

    Obviously it means one of the Red Capes from Vs. the Soulless Army. Raidou CONFIRMED! (I wish)

  • akiko_sakuraba

    Is it bad that I wanted her to beat up Yosuke? XD They make a great married couple.
