Wait, So Elizabeth Is In… Outer Space When Persona 4 Arena Starts?

By Spencer . July 25, 2012 . 4:05pm

After Persona 3, Velvet Room attendant Elizabeth entered the world within people’s hearts. A giant monster confronts her and somehow she ends up fighting… on the surface of the moon?! There Elizabeth gains Thantatos as her persona. Elizabeth is fighting to gain more power for a secret purpose hidden in her heart.


Labyrs’ backstory will be revealed in the Midnight Arena. Researchers call her machine number 31 and she meets another girl who looks a lot like her…



We’d like to tell you more, but Elizabeth said she’ll curse anyone who spoils Persona 4 Arena on the Internet. Instead, here are some pictures of the voice navi feature. While Rise usually provides battlefield information you can also have Nanako, Fuuka, Teddie, Yosuke or Mitsuru as a navigator. Each character has custom phrases. Nanako, for example, says "go for it big brother" if you play as Yu.

    Hmm, if they’re showing off these navigation characters now, does that mean they’re not DLC? If so, thank goodness!!!

    • Triplicity

      Yeah, confirmed to all be unlockable in-game. …Source eludes me at the moment.

  • Xapth

    I see, so Elizabeth had to travel as far as outer space in order to find a way to free the blue-haired boy. I’m telling you, she’ll find a way…

    • Fitzkrieg

      I’m hoping on the idea that he’ll be the Velvet Room master come Persona 5. Sadly, Igor’s voice actor IS deceased and he was basically irreplaceable.

      • Enigma_XIV

        As cool as that is, i have a feeling that would open a huge plot hole.

      • AuraGuyChris

        But unlike America, Japan has a lot of VAs so finding a replacement would be easy…


        • cj_iwakura

          Wrong, unfortunately. Japan doesn’t replace VAs; they change the character before doing that. Look at Heihachi in TT2, that’s why he’s young now.

      • Older Ken and Nanako as playable Persona-users in P5. You know you want it.

        • LightZero

          I don’t. I want another adult cast like in EP and Catherine. I want a break from playing as teenagers. 

          • cj_iwakura

            …adult Ken and Nanako then?

    • Enigma_XIV

      Well the protagonist Sealed Nyx away in the moon so thats probably why she’s there, but yea, she’s gonna do it…

  • Randgriz

    The game is coming out soon, i really dont like these spoilerd news bits.

  • Herok♞

    Yeah Elizabeth being on the moon makes sense if you know P3’s ending.

  • Lisa Fraulein

    Why do I feel at the end of P4 Arena, P3’s protagonist might do a cameo…? Or s it just this little hope in me that do that?

    • Herok♞

       No I think that is completely possible.

    • Enigma_XIV

      Probably just at the end of Elizabeths story, or my personal hope something happens where Yu sees Minato chained up and somehow frees him

  • Enigma_XIV

    I find it interesting that Elizabeth found Thanatos on the moon but none of the other main personas the protagonist had (Messiah, Orpheus/Orpheus Telos)

  • Guiltygate

    Save Minato!

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Go for it big brother??? Damn you!!! Yu!!!!^_^

    • Daniel Morandi

      The pimp arcana is working!?

  • amagidyne

    She had better not be doing what I think she’s doing. Stop trying to ruin P3’s ending, Atlus.

    • OatMatadoQuatro

      Hey, poor P3 protagonist!

    • Would YOU want to be a door for the rest of your life starting at age 17?

      • amagidyne

        I actually meant The Journey’s ending. It’s the most perfect story moment in the game, pulling together all the symbolism and “memento mori”-ing into a death scene which (unlike the others in the game) is less about angst and loss than it is about acceptance.

        The Answer is just kind of meh. Fanservice isn’t inherently a bad thing, I just think that in P3’s case it has no reason to exist as a continuation of the story. Every important plot thread in P3 was resolved. It was just running on fumes.

        Bringing *that character* back would be worse, imho. Anyone replaying or playing P3 for the first time after playing Arena (and there must be a few) will have the whole experience undermined. And for what? A cameo by a character who, by design, has no personality?

        Then again, I could just ignore it and not take things so seriously.

        • Youareallcryingmorons

           I disagree.

    • Scrooge_McDuck

       Well, Elizabeth’s goal is to free P3 MC’s soul, not to bring him back to life. His body is already rotting six feet under, anyway.

      • amagidyne

        Okay, fair enough.

  • OatMatadoQuatro


    • I am now reminded of an old Toonami promo. Ah those were the good old days.


    And sometimes Yosuke.

  • Well Liz’ video confirms the spolier script floating around to be true. Yay?

    • cj_iwakura

      She’s probably already found the people who created it. 

  • And Koromaru is Mitsuru’s coat.

    • Enigma_XIV


    • ….You don’t post on the Arena faqs at Gamefaqs do you?

      • I don’t post on any forums.  That came from /a/.

        • /a/…./a/….that’s not 4chan is it? Are you a troll?

          • … Really?

          • I assume that means no which mean 4Chan is the next letter in the alphabet /b/. Also no one wants to hear/read that their dog has been turned into a coat X(

          • I didn’t know the internet couldn’t take a joke. Also please stop assuming everyone that goes to 4chan is a troll and/or browses /b/. Words of advice.

          • I knew it was a joke, which is why I asked if you were on Gamefaqs (where i first heard the joke) and my troll comment had been more of a joking accusation anyway. The only thing i said that i was serious about was mistaking /a/ for /b/.

    • Anesia Hunter

      Don’t compare Mitsuru to Cruella. ~_~ Just because we don’t see him doesn’t mean he isn’t safe with Junpei somewhere… We can only hope. D:

  • Anesia Hunter

    For Elizabeth to be in space she might be still trying to figure out a way to save the P3 MC.

  • RmanX1000

    Nanako as commentator? Thats enough of a reason to buy the game.

  • LightZero

    If the P3 MC gets revived somehow he better nail Elizabeth again as her reward. :p

    • Youareallcryingmorons

       Yup, giving me type one diabetes.

  • Ben Sylvia

    So Elizabeth is just crazy awesome in this game? That’s what you’re saying right?

  • Scrooge_McDuck

    Labrys is from the Fifth Series of Anti-Shadow weaponry (whereas Aegis is from the Seventh). The other gynoid’s design look a lot like her probably because she’s also from the same series.

  • Niermyico

    Elizabeth is going to become the Nyx (in a sense) and kill everybody. That way there will be no need for the real one, thus freeing Minato (i know he has another name, this one is the one I’m used to) from being the seal.

    Let’s gooo!

  • Sakurazaki

    The title is kind of a spoiler itself xD

    *inflict curse*

  • Elizabet’s secret purpose… I guess we all know that secret right XD
    Btw I really like Labyrs design, she look really cute.

  •  Nanako as navi? Now, all we need is a Dojima one.

  • Tom_Phoenix


    An apt response if I ever saw one.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    she went to save *you know who* in p4 he might return in 5 

    • Lambo Lamperouge

      i know it’s on p3, but who in p4?

      • Z3

        He meant in P4:A

  • Voltech44

    Elizabeth on the moon…well Atlus, now I HAVE to play through story mode.

    Also, Brosuke will be my navigator until the end of days.

  • OatMatadoQuatro

    Elizabeth is searching for the Namekian Dragon Balls to make her wish come true.

    …by the way, I can’t stop imagining King Moron as a navigator!

  • Dianatos

    She’s probably having tea with Ryoji. 

  • Niyari

     Nanako as a voice navi? Oh lawd.

  • XypherCode

    Fuuka and Mitsuru for navigators ftw! :D

  • everyone is forgetting someone… give some love to Theodore! oh where art thou?

    ps. labrys is starting to look hot to me o___o

    • Enigma_XIV

      Theodore wont make it because he not canon to p3’s story

      • Scrooge_McDuck

         His involvement in the P3 story is not canon. His existence, however, is still up in the air.

  • cj_iwakura

    Is this who I think it is?


    The magic obsessed teacher/nurse from P3?

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      seems like it is…

    • OMG his “medicines”…. Where the hell he get his license?

  • XiaomuArisu

    Your big bro is gonna kick so much ass!
    And even more robot girls?What you trying to do?Giving me a robot fetish because its almost working!

  • So….Lizzie spoofs YuGiOh and becomes even wackier than ever? Lovely.
    Did that scene with Aigis just made the Answer NOT Canon? Considering Aigis(apparently) could enter the Velvet Room and all yet not recognizing Lizzie…


    • Sardorim

       The Answer is still canon. Don’t forget that Arena takes place years later and it’s not like anyone has seen Elizabeth since Persona 3.

  • OMG I just got an idea…… Is Thanatos actually SPOILERSRyojiSPOILERS in disguise!????

  • Why in the world would you spoil that?  Think before creating titles, please.  You could have easily avoided spoiling it by typing “Wait, so when Persona 4 Arena starts, Elizabeth is…” and then complete your sentence inside the article.  Next time, please be more considerate.
