    Wait, third-tier personae? I didn’t know that, that’s awesome!
    I’d love to play it now but I want to support the european release, even though it’s kinda stupid to push it back to the end of febuary… But what can you do. Still better than that Arena-crap.

    “Croco Fur sells costumes, but most of these are really expensive. ”

    Does this mean I get the protagonist’s dress from the beauty pageant? DOES IT?

    • NekoDraga

      From what I’ve read elsewhere, yes. Yes you can.

      • http://www.siliconera.com Jenni

         You get the drag costumes for Yu, Yosuke and Kanji after the contest, if I remember right. I don’t remember having to pay for them.

        You also get the towel costumes for them after the Amagi Inn segment.

      • http://openid.anonymity.com/5HuDuQyz Woot

        Honestly, the Alice costume would be the first one I’d get.

      I thought that was a spelling error until I looked back through the article again.

      Dat pun!

  • Setsu Oh

    are the jp voices in there?

    • Triplicity

      No.

      • Jesse Thompson

         That’s too bad really, the new Chie still makes me want to stab my ears with chopsticks.  I zoom through her dialogue to hear as little of it as possible. :-/

        • SerendipityX

          Its so weird though. The new Chie was great in the anime but in the games she was just so off, its ridiculous.

          • Berialos

            That’s your opinion, I thought Erin Fitzgerald did great in Persona 4 Arena.

          • SerendipityX

            I didn’t think she was terrible like @google-517b11ea6a559da64bc57b8651f9a0d2:disqus but she sounded so different in the games that I thought maybe it was a different voice actor.

    Costumes, extra dungeon from social link, and skill transferring? I was going to play the game in easy so I didn’t have to grind as much because normal mode was still hard for me, but it seems like they are providing more options to make grinding easier.

  • PersonaBull

    Ah, I didn’t really look into what changes the whole bike thing brought it. Nice to know, since I was going to dump time into that anyway! Time to get back to playing~ Thanks for the tips <3

    PS Still way too excited about Marie. Only just met her and she's already fantastic. I'm such a sucker for tsundere-types it's ridiculous.

    Just got the game yesterday and absolutely love it. I’m probably going to save this article so that I can keep access to this information for use while playing (any tips for upgrading courage is appreciated… couldn’t figure it out in P3P so no Fuka social link for me). 

    • Enma_Kozato

      Check the fridge for funky leftovers and science projects to consume. The janitor job at the hospital raises courage too.

    • Daru Titor

       You could always try Wild Duck to raise courage in P3P.
      There’s also the arcade.

    Gardening improves relationship with Dojima? 
    *Imagine if he’s saying the same thing as Nanako…*

    Dojima: We got veggies!

  • OatMatadoQuatro

    Some curious stuff:
    *Boss theme song “I’ll Face Myself” gets two remixes for two unique occasions: an 8 bit remix and a more orchestrated one.
    *New bad ending.
    *Post Christmas there are some St Valentine events involving the player’s girlfriend (only one at a time!) and you can even reject them
    *Teddie has a minigame where he makes the player questions.
    *”Snowflakes” replaces “Affection” during Winter.
    *Izanagi-no-Okami was improved
    *Margaret now fights a bit like her sister with consecutive turns (FFFFUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!)
    *You can… hit on Teddie o_O
    *”Never More” has a remix during the credits.

    “You can hang out with friends or ditch them to spend time with a cat which increases your understanding.”

    What a boss XD

    • Nitraion

      How Izanagi-no-okami improved? now he has special skill like arena?…
      i was pretty disappointed on ps2 version…the skill is so lame after I put a time to make it…

      • OatMatadoQuatro

        He automatically has 8 skills when fused.

        • Nitraion

          Kinda wish he has Myriad Truth skill that will be Game breaker XD
          So 8 skill same as Ps2 version? or Random skill like orpheus Telos now?
          Or there is new skill…Sorry so many question i just want to know :P

          • OatMatadoQuatro

            I think it’s random skill like Telos as the fusion options have been improved to fulfill Margaret’s requests in a faster way. Myriad Truths would be really cheap “ala SNK or Capcom’s superbosses”. Or it would be confusing for the final fight.

    • Nyandroid

      I’m so ditching my friends to spend time with the cat! XD

  • benhofb

    Muahahah. I got this game yesterday. Have my vita currently plugged in and strapped to my lap; some water and chips nearby; a bucket for my business. It is going to be a pleasant next few days…

  • http://www.facebook.com/rayhan.ahmed.355744 Rayhan Ahmed

    Is the protagonist now called “Yu” in P4G? Don’t see the reason to refer him by that name if he isn’t called that.

    • OatMatadoQuatro

      No. But it’s easier to understand if we have a name

    • Sakurazaki

      The Yu in P4 vanilla and Arena also didn’t have friends with 2nd tier Personas while my [insert Brotag name] had Max Links.

      I just like to think of it as an alt. universe.

    • Xerain

       They needed a name for him to be able to market things better. While P3′s protagonist was widely referred to as Minato, it was only used in the manga I think, so it was never confirmed as being canon. I believe the P4 protagonist had a name other than Yu Narukami int eh manga as well.

      However they obviously needed a name for him in the anime, which is where “Yu Narukami” comes from. And they used the same name for him in P4: Arena.  As it’s now appeared in the direct sequel, its’ become harder to deny it has some level of canoncy.

      However, despite “Yu” being a Japanese name, I can’t help but believe it is an intentional pun on the English word “You.”

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/5UFEVTPDTXD33NSMUFMX4TEAMQ Mike

        His name in the manga was Souji Seta or is it Seta Souji? Japanese names a re kinda confusing.

      • http://www.facebook.com/rayhan.ahmed.355744 Rayhan Ahmed

        I know his name is Yu in the anime and P4 Arena. I guess it makes sense to call him Yu if P4 Arena is canon.

    • Tien Ron

      yu narukami is a pun on you but that name has sort of become official 
      just like minato has kinda become official i believe that when the p3 movie comes out that will most likey be his name 
      plus p4 name is YUUUUUUU :D

  • http://openid.anonymity.com/5HuDuQyz Woot

    All cool stuff that makes me want to play P4 again, I gotta admit. Kinda sounds like they made the game a cakewalk though…

  • XYZ_JolteonZ980

    Just started, thanks for all this stuff Ill have to note this down since I think the faqs written for the game are still incomplete.

    What is the suggested difficulty, I started on Hard 

    (oh and Nanako is pretty annoying, do I really have to spend time with her?)

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/PTABJSIEY6HSME5ARRFO3IXRWU HindoloS

      HOW IS SHE ANNOYING. she is adorable hope my kid is like her.

      • XYZ_JolteonZ980

        She does nothing of significance, ads in no way, has an awful character design, awful appearance, and is just in the way. Pretty useless character.

  • Nitraion

    Hope Izanagi-no-Okami actually have decent skill now like P4 arena one Lol…
    PS2 version is sooo disappointing…

  • darkfox1

    Still no Vita…. I… I think I’m gonna cry ;_;

    • http://blackstar2661.deviantart.com/ SilverSpades

      We can shed tears together!

  • Nyandroid

    Oh wow. I didn’t realise just how much they added to this game. I might have to go out and get it before Ragnarok Odyssey.

    Are all of those tips specific to The Golden or are any of them applicable to the original Persona 4 as well?

    • Brandon001

      only golden man

    • http://www.siliconera.com Spencer

      The first tip is still applicable, but yeah the rest of these are for P4G. Some of the new stuff is too easy to miss.

  • Xerain

     I think you could avoid the biggest potential spoiler by changing the word “twisted” to something else like “special.”

  • Eilanzer

    Wow that´s a LOT of new stuff in the game o.o
    Unfortunately my wallet is empty this month…I hate/love you steam sales ¬¬

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/CNDOWI6ARJQBGE73GCROU7IVSI Zane

     I think that makes this even more of a must-have! Can’t wait to buy a vita and play this game!

  • Impossible2beat

    some of the things are incredibly great to know, thanks :)

  • XiaomuArisu

    If I only had a vitaXD
    Reach out to the Truth!
     

  • LovesJapanManga1

    For those of you who owns or rents this game – How is it? Is this game a must have game?

    • Asanti Jackson

       It is a must have game. After only 6 hrs I’m hooked.

      • revivegamesrise23

        i really wanted to play that game since i saw Persona 4 the animation! damn it, i need a vita
