Persona 4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold Arrives This Winter With Yukari, Junpei, And… Sho Minazuki

By Spencer . September 26, 2013 . 1:36am

The Persona 4 Arena update we played in August will be released in arcades in winter 2013. Persona 4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold adds Persona 3 characters Junpei Iori and the Flashy Pink Sniper Yukari Takeba.  Sho Minazuki is brand new for Persona 4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold and it isn’t clear if he’s friend of foe. He looks like he has the Yasogami High School tied around his waist.

 

4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold  continues the story after the events in Persona 4 Arena. A few days after P4A, a new tournament pops up on Mayonaka TV called the P-1 Climax. A bizarre red fog covers the streets of Inaba and an image of a figure that looks like Mitsuru being crucified is shown on TV. S.E.E.S. and the Special Investigation Squad work together to figure out what’s going on behind the scenes.

  • AlphaSixNine

    Ar…cade…? D:

    I hope a console release will come later.

    • TheExile285

      Arcade release is always first followed by console release.

    • Dark Zerato

      A lot of fighting games in JP make their debut on arcade. P4A was the same. But i really dislike the way they make this kind of game. An expansion costs as much as a full game.

      • Virevolte

        Yeah… for once, the DLC format wouldn’t be so bad.

        • Herok♞

          they are adding way to much for this be a dlc

          • Dark Zerato

            I bet this game would cost around 60$ when it comes out on console. A price around 30$ would be nice for an expansion.

          • Herok♞

            its a new game so it should have the price of a new game, an expansion is when you are adding new stuff to the base see any 2 versions of $F4, a new version is when you make changes major changes like changing mechinics and how systems work. for example take a look at Blazblue. CT was the first game but if you take a look at CS then they changed a lot of how the game works, even though they only added two new characters.

      • Herok♞

        Not really a simple expansion because they are majorly changing up game mechanics, after they are adding shadow characters that play completely different and then they are changing a lot of how the fights operate, like the tarot cards and changing ever fighters move set etc.

      • 하세요

        This is a major overhaul, not just some simple DLC addition. They could, but it would be pretty massive.

      • CirnoTheStrongest

        It’s a full-on sequel. New story, new characters, new UI, new mechanics, and some new moves too.

        The story alone will make it worth buying again when the console version comes around if the original P4 Arena is anything to go by. That game had a tremendous and amazing story.

        Though, I guess if you don’t care for story and are only in it for the combat, then I can see why you might think it’s an ‘expansion’, but that’s really an insult to the Atlus/Arc Sys team.

        • colorblindnightmare

          My sentiment exactly

  • Raze

    Ah Yukari…Can’t wait for her…

    And Sho…
    I can’t think of anything…
    Still no clue…
    I hope He has a good persona some good moves….

    Btw…
    That Aigis suplex Yuu is unexpected one…

  • Zeik56

    I thought that name was a joke at first. That’s what it’s actually called? That’s…kind of amazing. Hope it sticks for the localization.

  • Go2hell66

    Whoever came up with that title should be fired

    • Zeik56

      So they can be promoted to the head of naming things, obviously.

      • Go2hell66

        no…
        i wouldn’t even trust them to name their own first born child

        • Zeik56

          I’d want to be that kid’s friend. I bet he wouldn’t be a sourpuss like you.

          • neocatzon

            That kid could attempt a revenge to that guy though.
            http://myanimelist.net/character/81659/Lucy_(…)_Yamagami

          • Raze

            That name is easy mode

            Take this instead

            http://myanimelist.net/character/46407/Jugem

          • Virevolte

            Well, the name comes with the habit of launching feces, so… unlike Zeik, I wouldn’t be his friend.

          • neocatzon

            Whoever thought Jugemu tale should be awarded a special place on heaven.

          • Linhua

            … now why would you even do that to my bladder… I had to go to the bathroom as sooon as I read the whole thing… =

    • SupaPhly

      Capcom would hire him

  • Sentsuizan_93

    Interesting. I really am curious as to what Sho would be like. And his persona too. Well, I estimate a Spring/Summer 2014 release for consoles (for Japan at least)
    Still, can’t wait to see more.

  • $36487238

    Wow, a sequel/update already? I haven’t even played the first one! Hope it gets a console release. I’ll just enjoy and play the first one before getting this one, if it ever makes it into localization.

  • Abysswalker90

    “A few days after P4A, a new tournament pops up on Mayonaka TV called the P-1 Climax.”

    Sheesh, can’t they get a break? Now I just feel bad for them.

    • Mental

      So much for Golden Week.

      • natchu96

        And even this just puts them on Day 2 more or less.

        Still one potential fiasco they might get thrown into.

        • Sakurazaki

          Does that mean we’ll be getting a game for each day of the holiday? ;_;

          • EverEndingStory

            That would be hilarious; a seven game long series all transpiring within a single week; its like the total inverse of the main Persona series having one game take place over a year.

    • http://shadious.tumblr.com/ Vince

      Eldritch menaces or Godly Bringers of Destruction doesn’t give everybody a break once they find humanity wallowing in their own cesspool of nihilism.

  • Guest

    For those that need translation Yukari in the trailer said that Mitsuru was kidnapped. Commence Speculation!

  • Landale

    The new guy looks kinda like an insane version of Yu. Between that and the last thing shown being a gold eyed Yu. I’m going to go ahead and guess that he’s his shadow, or pretending to be it.

    • http://shadious.tumblr.com/ Vince

      Malevolent Entity aka. Nyarlathotep?

      • JustThisOne

        Nah, Nyarly has bigger fish to fry. It’d seem weird if he ended up being a Persona/Shadow considering the events of P2.

        Then again, in P1… :>

        • http://shadious.tumblr.com/ Vince

          Well, Nyarly’s sole intention was to plunge humanity into self-destruction, so he’ll be willing to achieve it by through any means and pawns he’ll see as an opportunity to capitzalize.

  • Espoir

    VITAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA please :3

    • Mental

      That doesn’t actually seem too far off of an idea. ASW has already released Guilty Gear XX Accent Core+R and BlazBlue Continuum Shift EXTEND on Vita, and technically every Persona game is available digitally on Vita (P1&Innocent Sin remakes, Eternal Punishment as a PS1 classic, P3Portable, & P4Golden).

      • TheExile285

        Man I hope so. I really want this for on the go. CP too! (Although I’d buy both versions like CSE if they make a Vita version)

    • Albert Calderon

      If this came to Vita omg. I would play it non stop.

  • http://youtube.com/user/Chubunater Chubunato

    That title is glorius

    • LaserVision

      With a name like Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold, it has to be good.

  • Alexander Aubert

    yes dual sword

  • Sapitntapit

    Maybe, just maybe, Sho is MC of Persona 5.
    That’s right, you saw it here first.

    • Linhua

      … LOL… alright… i’ll give you that one.

  • Suriel Cruz

    Looking forward to this! That new character, Sho Minazuki, looks evil and we all know that every villain in Persona series is awesome.

  • Ali

    The title, perhaps its hinting a Wii U version is in the works?

    • Pdugna

      nah U is Ultimate but it would be cool if this came to Wii U this is awesome and should be experienced by everybody.

  • $61526767

    As soon as I saw the article.. “dat suplex”

  • Detrimont

    i’m calling Sho’s persona… Loki… he just gives that vibe

    • Aesma

      Amatsu-Mikaboshi or Hi-no-Kagutsuchi fits the theme more.
      Labrys is from Persona 3 theme and so, she has a Greek mythology-themed Persona.
      Sho is said to be ‘He looks like he has ‘Yasogami High School’ tied on his waist’ means that he is from Persona 4 theme, that means Shinto Kami.

      • Detrimont

        i never said i was right, Loki is just the feeling i get from him
        + Amatsu-Mikaboshi is out, seeing as Naoto has him/it in the novel

        • Aesma

          True, true… if not for the Persona 4 theme, I thought he was Nyarlathotep…

          • Detrimont

            maybe, though it could be Hinokagutsuchi, it would explain the red hair

    • MrJechgo

      How about he has not one, but TWO Personas: Muramasa and Masamune?
      The guy has 2 swords, so why not give him the Personas related to that legend about the 2 swordsmiths?

    • LibraryOfAlexandira .

      Sho’s persona could be Tsukuyomi. They already have Yosuke and Yukiko with Amatersu and Sussano-wo. Why not complete the trio?

      • Detrimont

        that would be cool, but Tsukuyomi is a character called Sousei Kurogami’s persona in the Persona X Detective Naoto(meaning, in the P4 universe, and canon)

        • Androu1

          lol @ persona x detective naoto being canon

    • LibraryOfAlexandira .

      Sho’s persona could be Tsukuyomi. They already have Yosuke and Yukiko with Amatersu and Sussano-wo. Why not complete the trio?

  • Fashion Mage

    Meh, I was hoping for Ken or Margaret. :

  • Niyari

    Aegis with that ultimax ultra suplex on Yu. lol

  • r0gamer940

    so before the p4g epilogue… interesting

    • MrJechgo

      P4A was also before the epilogue as well though.

      • r0gamer940

        I know that but maybe now it will explain the character design changes we see in the epilogue

        • EverEndingStory

          To me, the only character design change needing explaining is Kanji’s. Yosuke and Yukiko just got haircuts. Chie’s hair grew. Naoto is dressing more feminine. Rise simply went on a shopping spree.

          • Androu1

            Kanji’s is obvious, man. Did you do his SLink?

            (This is all spoilers for Kanji’s SLink and development)

            He talks about how he likes knitting (which is seem as feminine) and because of that he got insulted by both girls and boys and he couldn’t take that. So he became a punk to scare people off and not have to deal with such crap. His punk attitude is a mask.

            He eventually realizes this thanks to the MC and a little boy who likes Kanji’s plush animals and doesn’t discriminate Kanji for his “feminine” hobby, so he tries to be more true to himself (which is what most SLinks seem to boil down to). So he stopped bleaching his hair and dressing like a punk to be truer to himself.

            Now, I haven’t played P4 in a while, but that’s pretty much it.

  • vileBrenman

    That image of Aigis Suplexing Yu at the end made my day.

  • Deebo#Take What I Like

    I love how they put Sho in the middle maybe he’ll be Persona’s 5 main character.

    • Raze

      Maybe…But…

      He’s giving more of magician vibe than a fool I think….

  • Gyro Zeppeli

    This Minazuki guy looks stupid, just put in Kei Nanjo already, and have Nyarlathotep taking P3MC’s form as a boss character. Put Satomi Tadashi in charge of writing and you have a recipe for ultimate suffering right there.

  • ragingmerifes

    What if he is a character from Persona 5 who is being introduced now?

    • MrJechgo

      Too risky… if they do that, they might lock some of his abilities for the actual game and spoil some others.
      Considering his look, he seems more like an axe-crazy antagonist related to P4 than another from an upcoming sequel.

  • Arizato

    Sho might be a new asset to S.E.E.S?

    EDIT: Nevermind, just noticed he wears a Yasogami uniform.

  • transferstudentx

    release this first in the uk this time to make it fair

  • V. Dokk.

    I really thought the name of this game was a joke, at first….

  • http://shadious.tumblr.com/ Vince

    I heard genjutsu/illusion as the last lines in this trailer. Perhaps the bloody red fog brings about illusions that brings greatest nightmares or fear out of a person?

  • MrJechgo

    That’s the name they went for? Seriously?
    Persona 4: P-1 Climax would have been much better ¬_¬

    • Nexus

      Aw c’mon, how can you not love such an absurdly awesome title? I would’ve added extra X’s, Supers and Hypers in there for good measure.

    • Zeik56

      P1 Climax is a boring name. You’re boring.

      This is like the epitome of every dumb fighting game update title, but clearly purposely so, it’s fantastic. Embrace the stupidity.

      • MrJechgo

        It’s easier to remember a short boring name than a long interesting one, in case you haven’t noticed. Furthermore, Japanese medias tend use long names and titles that all get shortened when localized.

        Dude, how do you explain that “Persona 4: The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena” got cut to “Persona 4: Arena”? One word: convenience. I don’t even remember the word “Mayonaka” being said once in the English version too.
        I’m pretty sure that the English title for this game is gonna be close of my idea.

        • Zeik56

          Yes, people shorten things for convenience, but that doesn’t mean everything has to start short and boring. Although the original’s change was more than just convenience, it was also because that title was awkward English. This is a lot more crazy and dumb, so they could probably get away with keeping it.

          I’m not arguing that they will (they probably won’t), but they should, because it’s great.

    • Androu1

      I’ll bet the localized version will end up as Persona 4 Arena 2 or something like that! Maybe Persona 4 Climax, which was what people were calling it until this title got revealed. Or maybe Persona 4 Arena Climax. I dunno. Will be much shorter and not as lovably dumb..

  • Rohan Viajar

    So does that mean that they won’t add any more characters?

    I still want Ken or Koromaru.. T__T
    And nobody tell me that Koromaru is the fur that Mitsuru wears. It can’t be.

    • CirnoTheStrongest

      Truth hurts

    • Zeik56

      When the first game was announced we didn’t even see the entire P4 cast. And then Elizabeth, Labrys, and Shadow Labrys was added after the game hit arcades.

      Way too soon to say whether this is all we’ll see.

  • Serge

    Atlus, you have Yukino, Tatsuya, Maya, Eikichi, Lisa, Naoya, Maki, Nanjo, Uesugi, Kirishima, Katsuya, Ulala, Baofu, Jun or even Tamaki. But no, you choose to put a new random character that nobody knows. I’m disappointed.

  • ZekeFreek

    GEE, I WONDER IF THEY’LL MAKE IT OUT ALIVE? *watches epilogue of P4G* OH… RIGHT….

    • CirnoTheStrongest

      That’s not canon with P4 Arena xD Technically they hadn’t seen each other again until Golden Week, plus, notice how there’s no Marie?
      This isn’t related to Persona 4 Golden. Though it IS linked heavily to Persona 3: FES

      • Strain42

        Golden week didn’t end in Arena though, this game could easily take place during the several remaining days of the holiday. Also Golden explains why Marie wasn’t there. The Golden epilogue is (currently) just as canon with the rest of the series as Arena itself is.

        • CirnoTheStrongest

          Yeah, i was just informed about some things I didn’t know about it. So i was wrong on that. And I apologize. I got the timelines all mixed up

      • DragKudo

        you do know they reference the events of arena in golden epilogue. right?

      • Androu1

        The P4G epilogue is canon, they even mention the P4A events saying it was all crazy.

  • Nice Boat Quatro

    PERSONA FOOU DA URTIMAX URTRA SURPREX HOORDOO!

    • TheExile285

      lol

    • Linhua

      … over the top like dat suplex~

  • enorka miho

    erm.. so.. is this a new game? DLC? Or… re-release with P4A? Darn… Why did they region lock that game?!! Sheesh!

    • doubleO7

      Its a sequel.

  • ChiffonCake

    People are already complaining about the new character? Geez.

  • KyoyaHibari

    It’s an understatement to say that Sho looks totally badass, but that could be a bad thing because everyone will probably use him. ;_;

  • Göran Isacson

    Have to admit I too would’ve preferred an already existing character, but will withhold judgment until I see what this dudes deal is… and hope it’s something interesting.

  • Ni ~UNREAL BLACK THINGS~

    I just hope that Sho isn’t the P5 protagonist

    • TheExile285

      I wonder how people would react if he was lol

      • Ni ~UNREAL BLACK THINGS~

        I don’t know about other people. but i would stop playing the games since they’re going to dick ride the P3 and P4 hype. If Atlus/Sega is going to continue the P3-4 story make a direct sequel titled Persona 4:Platinum or P4:something. not slap P5 on it. And yeah. I know that Persona games are related and that P2 had P1 characters. But P1 and P2 had its own stories for its own crews.

        • DragKudo

          It can still have its own character. sho can still be the mc. p5 will most likely have some reference to p4 and all games. sho could be the mc we’ve been waiing for. He looks like an adult and he probably is a shadow op.

          • EverEndingStory

            I don’t know – I doubt he’d be the main character; he looks like he’d have too much personality, going by his drawing; though the P4 protagonist now has a name, and some semblance of a character, he still exists largely as vacant, because the series protagonists are supposed to act as avatars for ourselves just as much as be their own characters. Heck, I think Elizabeth, being the way she is, is a better candidate for MC. I could see Sho being a character in P5 though.

            As for connections to P3 and P4, I think that is fine, so long as it is done in a way that doesn’t require one to have played those two games previously (though I have), and done in a way that still allows it to exist singularly within itself.

          • DragKudo

            i imagine him playing the same role yukino playd in p2 someone who wasnt really known but was involved with past events in game and to the player. he could be a bro or mentor to the next mc.

    • JustThisOne

      xD I don’t really know why people would, though… It’s possible, sure, but why they would choose someone from the Arena roster seems weird to me.

    • Kami nii

      I think the new guy is probably a yosuke or junpei type of role in p5 a brofist :)

    • Androu1

      He looks like a villain, so I really doubt he’s the P5 protagonist or even related to P5 at all.

  • KuroNathan

    Sho who now?

    Junpei looks like my kind of character! Though I’ll still keep up my Kanji of course.

    • Magicks

      Who da man? Junpei’s da man. Nah, but both are amazing characters. : >

  • Slayven19

    Can’t wait for this game to come out. Yukiko will finally be a viable character this time I hope.

  • Hyli

    Dual swords? And dat voice! Sign me up for Sho Minazuki! If you guys are so unexcited about him, all the more for me! <3

  • Strain42

    Sho is already fitting a lot of my happiness requirements for this game.

    He’s a brand new character (which is why I main Labrys in the first game)
    He looks like an antagonist, who are usually my favorite characters
    Dual Swords…eh, okay, not that impressed. We have enough sword users, they could’ve given him something cooler (though I do like that the blades are serrated in certain spots)

    I dunno who I could see his Persona being. What with the dual swords I think Soejima’s take on Futsunishi would be good for him, but he’s already the Chariot Link Persona.

    But yeah, I look forward to seeing what role this guy has in the story.

  • http://takopako.tumblr.com takopako

    Sho Minazuki has the same face and bangs as Yu Narukami…

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      its dark Yu lol

  • TheCynicalReaper

    Sho is obviously P4 Protagonist’s shadow.
    Why? Look at the face. Soejima doesn’t typically have “same-face syndrome” to his work, but it looks like the protagonist. Also the exaggerated cocky look and katana wielding.

    If it is his shadow, then why? Why must they ruin the lore of the games? He’s not Tatsuya. The mystery behind his lack of a persona and his ability to summon not just a pure Izanagi but the actual deity Izanagi implies he always had a connection to Izanagi and never had a true shadow. Or it implies there was no shadow that formed for him because Izanami bypassed that by just unlocking his power for him. Either way, he shouldn’t have a shadow.

    • CirnoTheStrongest

      Or he could be the one behind the whole original tournament too. There are any number of possibilities. I really don’t think he’s Yu’s shadow though.

  • Anonymous

    A (i think) new character? Couldn’t they add Tatsuya or Maya on the way as well?

  • AuraGuyChris

    Me thinks Sho is the assumed Big Bad behind the events in P4 Arena.

  • Damarius Wingfield

    Oh, there will be blood!

  • Croix Zapp

    hmm, is shinji from P3 in the game?

    • Nice Boat Quatro

      Emmm, played P3?

      Shinji dies in P3. He only survives in Portable but Arena follows the regular’s storyline.

      • Croix Zapp

        i see, haven’t got the chance to play P4A. haha
        but would like the idea of playing the badass guy tho

  • IshimaruKaito

    anyone else the trailer even more just because of how the announcer sounded lol!

  • Jean Alcantara

    Nagato, is that you?

  • Albert Calderon

    For some of you thinking that sho is the P5 mc. I think this Sho is this dude when he was younger.

    • personablaze

      I think they’re family, maybe his son.

      • Albert Calderon

        So both the father and son have the same scars on their faces? :p

        • personablaze

          Why not?

          In a game as out there as persona, would it really be that strange?

          And if you didn’t notice, the scars aren’t the same length, so yea, it is possible they could be father and son.

          • Albert Calderon

            Hmmm.. you are right haha. Could be the dudes shadow because he really wants to be young again lolol.

          • personablaze

            A forum i’m on said something about time warping happening in the game so maybe the old man does become young again! lol time travel stuff (I don’t know if this is true btw so take it with a gain of salt~)

          • Albert Calderon

            That is an interesting theory but I wonder why he is even here in the first place?
            So the shopkeeper was a Persona user?

          • personablaze

            Maybe he knew about personas already?, Either him or his son could be a persona user and that was why he would make weapons for the P4 cast without asking questions?, or maybe he was a follower of
            *SPOILER*
            Nyarlathotep, when he was younger and he (Nyarlathotep) gave the shopkeeper his youth back to help him somehow?

            Haha, these theories are so fun to come up with~.

          • Albert Calderon

            Yeah true, but it’s always weird how adults sell kids weapons in these games :p
            Your theory could be true actually.
            Do you have a twitter or psn account? :o you;re awesome.

          • personablaze

            lol, i always wondered why anyone would sell weapons to a bunch of kids but Who knows, I’m gonna laugh so hard if atlus throws us a curve ball.

            One more theory i had *SPOILER!*, what if sho is the Vessel that nyarlathotep was talking about at the end of P4A?, That might be his place in the story..In theory xD.

            Thx dude!, you’re cool ta chat with too~, My Psn is jamada3044, lets play some P4A or something~.

            I’ll add you then :)

            I doubt it because he looks like a cool guy twisted but not evil :p. Despite having the scars of course. I have a feeling he might be part of this Persona 5 cast.

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      Must be his kid

    • DragKudo

      it would make sense he is probably the ony one who knows what they do.

  • Jake_Indiman

    I am BEGGING, Atlus! Please port this to consoles! I must play this, without paying thousands of dollars going to Japan!

  • ivanchu77

    Looks like a dark and edgy recolor of Yu, meh

    I would have rather have an already existing character like Adachi, NyX or Tatsuya, but we get instead a “original character, plz do not steal” crap, not impressed

    • Zeik56

      I’d much much rather see new characters than the likes of Adachi with his Izanagi palette swap.

  • Warboss Aohd

    ……Yukari’z outfit…..really?

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    the hacker

  • Neppygear

    If this isn’t the dumbest update title ever, I don’t know what is.

    Wow Sho looks so interesting said no one ever.

    • Zeik56

      It’s dumb, but the best kind of dumb.

      And I’m absolutely interested in Sho, if only because he’s a new character, and possibly a villain. Not nearly enough villains or original characters on the roster.

  • Wondering_Zero

    Here’s a subbed trailer for those who were curious as to what they said:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgtskV0Y4dY

    And Sho saying he has nothing to lose is very curious…You’d think someone being dragged into the TV World and into an all out brawl would at least be a little concerned. Him being in the center of all the fighters at the end probably means he’s more then meets the eye. He’s probably Nyalatr-Screw it, Evil Nyaruko, in disguise and trying to move his plan along. Turning the world into Shadows sounds like par for the course, and even if he doesn’t exactly win he can move on to another plan if I remember correctly…

    • http://shadious.tumblr.com/ Vince

      I do remember that the Malevolent Entity mentioned in P4A that he has a human accomplice that would help him acquire a fitting vessel.

      Perhaps that accomplice could be Sho, if the latter is indeed connected to the Entity. Since you said Sho claims that he has nothing to lose, what better pawn he would be; Unhesitant and willing to risk everything since he has none to lose, even if it causes the world to be shattered into oblivion.

      • Wondering_Zero

        Correction, the announcer says, or is translated, “He and his red-headed mug laugh at one and all like he’s got nothing to lose! What’s his deal!?”

        To me it seems like Sho would be a good vessel instead of the human accomplice. The accomplice came off more as a genius that sits back and let’s other people do the work for him. I feel like this is following the BB formula in terms of characters, like P4A was the normal set of characters/heroes in the story, and now Ultra Suplex will add the main antagonist while possibly tying up all the loose ends from the story mode.

  • Smooosh

    nvm someone already made fun of dat engrish

    But yeah, I haven’t bought P4A yet because I knew something like this was coming. :B

    … Well, that and because all of my hype was gone anyway because of that URUTURA delayed EU Release, lol.
    I really hope this gets localized (or ported to consoles in general (this time maybe even for Vita or 3DS?)), I’m slowly getting tired of BB CSE…

    … VERY slowly, but y’know… whatever. :P

  • Trevor Nicolaysen

    This guy looks like if Yu’s shadow had its own appearance. He appears to have similarities to a lot of the P4 characters melded together.

    Not saying I actually think it is. I’d be shocked and possibly offended if it was.

  • http://zenkostickfighter.blogspot.com/ Zenko404

    I don’t think that Sho will be the protagonist of P5, because in the web he had the uniform of Yasogami School. Also, I think he looks badass!! I like to see new moves in the game too.

    • Albert Calderon

      Yeah Sho most likely isn’t the protagonist of P5. Unless P5 is a “flashback” Because he looks like the shopkeeper from P4.

  • InsertOffensiveUsernameHere

    Why not a character where instead of summoning the Persona, he becomes said Persona? Because we need some werewolf action.

  • Nitraion

    I am fine with title until they add “Ultra suplex hold… XD
    ah man i wish they add more chara again from past game.. nocturne MC or something

    • Androu1

      demi-fiend is 2op plz nerf

  • DragKudo

    Ahhhhhhh who could sho be? nyralathothep? p5 Mc? Revalations perona mc? ahhhh i cant wait. elizabeth looks cooler than before.

  • Unknown7

    Hell yea!

  • Unknown7

    HeII yea!

  • http://www.youtube.com/Lyonharvestmoonfan Eduardo Rocha

    I’m confused, is this going to be a whole new game or just an update?

    • personablaze

      It’s a sequel of P4A so yes, it is a whole new game :)

  • foopy

    My guess: Sho Minazuki is the Ex-Kirijo Group guy that was hinted at in the story mode of P4A. The one who is working with a particular Eldrich abomination.

    • http://shadious.tumblr.com/ Vince

      In your theory, could he be the same as the Strega trio, but was a somewhat near successful experimental subject but then escaped?

  • Rolling Guy

    Milking that series like a pro! Just announce P5 already! And what’s with Japan and their recent love for long titles?

    • Neppygear

      Recent? Did everyone forget Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. the Soulless Army?

  • Rolling Guy

    Milking that series like a pro! Just announce P5 already! And what’s with Japan and their recent love for long titles?

  • Sardorim

    Why is Junpei with the P4 cast? Did something happen that he would fight Yukari, Aigis, Mitsuru, and the such?

    • Androu1

      Well, Akihiko is on the “P4″ side too (facing Mitsuru). It’s some mostly random “rivalries”, I’d guess.
