Persona 4: Golden Footage Shows Fishing And Rise’s New Support Ability

By Ishaan . June 12, 2012 . 2:01pm

Atlus have updated the Persona 4: Golden website in Japan with new clips from the game. The new footage shows off fishing (plus other town activities), and battle scenes, most notably some of the joint attacks, such as Rise’s new “Cheer Up” ability and a pair-up attack with Chie and Yukiko. Take a look at them below:






Persona 4: Golden will be released in Japan this week. North America will get the game sometime this fall.

    GLORIOUS. I especially like how the team-up attack looks, can’t wait to see all the different combinations! Having Rise join the All Out Attack is pretty sweet too. :D

  • Muffum

    If Rise uses Cheer Up, the mushroom cloud is pink and has her twin tails…

    Cheer Up confirmed for best new feature.

  • Metalsnakezero

    OMG, they changed the fishing mini game! Now I can easily get that Bamboo stick :D

  • RmanX1000

    Every new clip hypes me more and more

  • Wut…
    Joint Attack is great…Dragon Sakura lo….
    This additional feature will only make the game easier…I hope Atlus increase the difficulty too..And add another S.Boss besides Margareth…

    • There’s a higher difficulty than Expert now, along with a super noob easy setting that’s probably just going to have enemies keel over and die without you needing to do much to them.

    • RablaAndrews

      I’m sure Marie’s dungeon will be hard as nails, too.

    Can anyone explain to me how this new Shuffle Time works? (I don’t know Japanese.) Based on this clip, it looks like you can freely choose whichever card you want which, I dunno…doesn’t make it seem like much of a shuffle.

    • $733987

      Well… what I think happened was the cursor moves automatically from the 1st card to the last card and then back to the 1st repeatedly, and when the cursor reaches the card you want, you press the circle/x button. But since we can’t see if the player was controlling the cursor, I might be wrong.

      • hermenjart

        Ah, you make an excellent point there. I guess we’ll know soon enough. But your theory makes a lot more sense than mine.

  • Christine Bainbridge

    Oh cool, Minor Arcana.

  • scary, scary, scary! Rise death cloud…
    Ahh … oh wait…what am I doing…

    *sneaking to sony and kidnapping a few playstation vitas*
    NOBODY WILL GET BETWEEN ME AND PERSONA4!! NOBODY!!! Especially since I’m not able to use my PS2 anymore! YOU WON’T GET US GAMERS ALIVE!


    My absolute madness and money troubles aside, those new features look very promising, especially the Trial of the Dragon join up of Yukiko-sama and Chie-san!
    Can’t wait to fish again!

    *snatches P4G and Project diva f along with them*… >:D

  • Lisa Fraulein

    I can’t wait to have this game in my hands….

  • Alexander Aubert

    shuffeling shuffeling

    anyway, love the bug chatching and rise is becoming more usefull

    • Kinda wanted to see something of the gardening with Nanako but oh well, only a week to wait before I can see it first hand :3

  • Niermyico

    The Joint Attack…. CRIT of 43. >_> *coughs coughs*

    • Nitraion

      yup i see it tooo XD
      i guess joint attack isn’t supposed to make game easier…

  • Hinataharem

    That joint attack was streudel to my eyes

  • Victoria [Rokuso3]

    Excuse me, but couldn’t you fish on the PS2 version? I haven’t played it for years, and somehow I was convinced Shuffle time was there, too…

    • Yes, and yes. But they’ve been changed for this version so they’re showing what the new versions of them are like. Fishing was just button mashing circle to land a fish with occasional hits of triangle to pull the fish in quicker, now there’s some form of bar that you have to do… something with.

      Shuffle time looked the same during the spinning but you just had to keep an eye on the card you wanted and stop it in the right place originally, now there are multiple choices in some way, not entirely sure how that works just from watching the video.

      • Victoria [Rokuso3]

         I see! Thank you very much ^^, I also thought fishing looked different and now seems more like… NieR-style. Good to know.

  • Need moar Chie x Yukiko. And dat dragon powah is awesome.
    Rise and her pink cloud of KO = DUUUUDE~ (in happy Yosuke voice)

    Now to get the elephant out of my way….
