Persona Teaser Site Updated With Teddy Images

By Ishaan . November 19, 2013 . 8:30am

Atlus’ Persona teaser site has been updated… sort of. Now, when you click on any of the three empty boxes at the top, they reveal images of Teddy from Persona 4.


Atlus will reveal what the site has been counting down to on November 24th.


[Thanks, Hachima Kiko]

  • Pdugna

    If you match the faces up they jiggle alot

    • DyLaN

      If you click on the cities they jiggle too, just another FYI.

  • If this really is a Persona 5 teaser site I’ll be a little bummed if P5 ends up being more of a Persona 4-2 and not something new.

    We shall see in less than a week though.

    • DyLaN

      Isn’t Arena is essentially P4-2?

      • Zertan

        Arena feels like P3-2.

        • Luke Blackwood

          Considering that the whole cast of P4 returns while not even jhalf of P3s return on the original P4, and that the story is pretty much centered on the Midnight Channel and a shadow self (yeah, a P3 based character shadow self but still a shadow self)?

          Arena definitely feels more like a P4 sequel then a P3 one.

          • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

            The teaser is for a movie

          • almostautumn

            Well technically P4 is pretty much a sequel to P3. Far as I’m aware, original Persona and Persona 2 have no application outside of their own titles, while P3 and P4 not only directly relate to one another, but that P4 occurs after the events of P3.
            So P4 is more like P3 2- P4, and Arena is like, P3 2- P4-Arena, seeing as Arena still follows the established timeline.

          • Zertan

            Let’s see the new character is a robot from the company in P3. Most of the characters in P4 always going “OMG! I cant believe I won!” against the P3 characters.

            I feel like the entire story in arena can still happen without most of the P4 cast.

          • Luke Blackwood

            Of course they are “OMG I won.”. P3 Persona Users are shown to be way stronger than the P4 Cast, seing as they can a)Use their personas out of midnight channel through the Evoker (AND without the evoker as well if they are well trained or within MidChanel).
            b)They are way more seasoned fighters, since they began fighting shadows way before P4 party and Tartarus is way bigger than P4 dungeons together.
            c)They all (except Aigis) have access to their Ultimate Personas, while only Yu can summon his in P4 cast(and only in his Instant Kill). So yeah, P3 characters are supposed to be plot wise stronger than P4 ones. This doesn’t make them any more important to the progression of the plot.

            And as I said before, although the new character is an Anti-Shadow Supression Weapon, the entire plot runs around her shadow self, and Shadow Selves are way more tied with Persona 4 than Persona 3. The setting for the story is the Midnight Channel, P4 Dungeon World, and not Tartarus. Most of the cast is still made of Persona 4 Characters, and overall the whole story is only set into motion because Yu returns to Inaba for Golden Week and lead the investigation team into the TV again. So yeah, although the P3 characters are stronger and they may be as or more important to the plot than P4 ones, the overall plot is conducted by P4 elements, making it more of a P4 sequel then a P3 one.(Heck, it it was supposed to be a P3 one it’d be called P3 Arena and not P4 :/)

          • Zertan

            This bugs me a lot.
            After the end of P3 they have no reason to be using their persona at all. Then comes Arena: They are a special Shadow killing Organization. The Shadows that only comes out in the Dark Hour that they gotten rid of. They just skip how that organization come to be and just say “Hey we’re still active!”

            Then the whole everyone in P4 got nerf, removing their Ultimate Personas while the P3 ones kept theirs. Granted the P4 got theirs plot wise but I bet every player gotten everyone’s Ultimate Persona in their first run in P4.

            Mind as well call it “P3 characters are better then P4.”

          • Kaitsu

            Also note that Arena has been stated that it’s not canon.

          • Luke Blackwood

            Yeah, P4 Ultimates are not canon(plot wise). So making everyone have their ultimates would “force” the player to max some SLs, so it would be bad for self projection if said player disliked a certain character xd

      • Blesmi

        Yeah it’s pretty much P3/4-2

    • Pdugna

      yeah I wouldnt want P5 to be P4 or P3 #2 but I really hope they tie in some things from the end of Arena in that game.

    • StaticDestroyer

      Given that persona’s stories are all in the same universe teddy being there doesn’t mean it’s going to be a straight 4 sequel. It could just be that the bits in p4 that hinted to a follow up to p3 could be central plot elements….Or it could be another p4 movie….Or it could just be a cameo.
      Whatever it is it’ll probably be good so I’m not too fussed, though I do echo the sentiment that it would be a little disappointing just to have a P4-2

    • I would be fine with a P4-2. especially if it’s a crossover of sorts with P3. The universe and characters are good enough for another go…especially if there is a time jump.

  • Brandonmkii

    No more P4 plz. Are we sure this isn’t about Arena?

    • Virevolte

      We’re not. I don’t hope it, but I wouldn’t be surprised by some kind of Persona Arena 2 announcement.

      • Freud_Hater

        Don’t we have the Super Mega Suplex thing already on its way? ‘___’

        • Detrimont

          no console release has been announced yet though, only arcade versions

          • Freud_Hater

            Oh. Then that’s probably it XD

    • Shane Guidaboni

      I’m preparing for disappointment now :/

    • Kaetsu

      Persona 4 isn’t done yet!

      • Naux

        Persona 4: FES!

        • Daniel Williams

          thats pretty much what P4 golden is, Im expecting this to be about Arena 2 or a Golden port to PS3. Fingers crossed for Teddy just appearing in P5 though

          • Romancer Ecclesia

            My exact thoughts. Just announce P5 already… I don’t care if Teddy is gonna be innit!

    • Yes more P4. I still want to continue the story in Inaba.

      • Afternoon Intergalactic

        Just an aside, but I love your picture. Dragon Quest 8 Hero is awesome.

  • DyLaN

    Welp, DeSu3 is crossed off the list. Unless they did a crossover or something.

  • Go2hell66

    no idea why they put teddy in there but i’m going to bet p5 has nothing to do with p4 and they just put him there for shits and giggles

  • Persona 4: Platinum for the Neo Geo X.

    I swear if its another P4 game.

  • Noire


    • Shane Guidaboni

      Isn’t that basically what Golden was?

      • Kinda but no. Golden is still P4’s story with more plot lines in it. P3FES was a continuation and aftermath of the P3 story with the epilogue stuff.

        If anything P4A is more P4FES than anything.

  • Kj Kim

    it’s happening! lol , we introducing NEWpachinko slot machine game for PERSONA4 !!

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Teddie and Nanako Spin-off

    • Now that sounds fun.

    • Kronos

      Mute teddie and you got yourself a deal.

      • InfectedAI

        But that would be beary unfortunate!

  • Masa

    Oh God, i can see it now, Persona spin off where you play as Teddy, for smartphone iOS and Android!


    Whatever this is, please don’t be some mobile / browser game.

  • xLogick

    I’m calling it now Persona 4: Red, it will be the same as Persona 4: Golden, only now Red……….and it will still be a Vita exclusive. :P

  • Brimfyre

    Persona 4 3DS

    3 Tedys sounds like 3DS if you say it fast.

    • revenent hell

      So… This seems to make sense to me.
      Though I myself would prefer a whole shiny and new Persona game.

    • kylehyde

      Persona 4: The silver for 3DS

    • Raidou

      Teddie is known as Kuma in Japan though

      So 3 Kuma

      • Brimfyre

        Yes, but DS is pronounced kuuma in Japanese.

        • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

          …. No its not….

          • Haganeren

            It should !

          • Brimfyre

            Prove it….

          • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

            Suri Di Essu.
            Svei Di Es

          • Brimfyre

            Do you realize I was joking yet? :)

    • Kaetsu

      Fine with me. I don’t have a Vita but I do have a 3DS :)

    • easter

      This… is actually a great speculation.
      I wouldn’t be surprised at all about a 3DS port.

  • Ooh Bee

    For the love of GOD, don’t let this be another Persona 4 announcement. I’m already annoyed just seeing Teddie’s stupid face AGAIN.

  • Leon_Tekashi

    Okay…I wouldn’t mind if two of those announcements are Persona 3 Vita and some info about Persona 4 Arena 2, but the last one better be Persona 5. Seriously, that’s enough P3 and 4 milking.

  • Arizato

    I’ll post it here too:

    This is a resume for Nanako’s Voice Actor:

    PERSONA 4, VOL 2
    GOLDEN 2 PERSONA 4 <—– Whaaaaat?
    PERSONA 3.5 <—- Might be FES.

    • Kj Kim

      link is broken

      • Arizato

        Corrected now

        • Kj Kim


    • Bigabu Beaze

      English or Japanese VA? If it’s English I’d like to know when Sakura Taisen 3 came out here.

      • Arizato

        That I do not know. I just found this on Neogaf.

      • MasterScrub

        Japanese, Naoto’s English VA is a mystery last time I checked.

        • Bigabu Beaze

          Naoto? I thought it said Nanako up there.

          • MasterScrub

            Oh wow it did, I’m an idiot. That’s what I get for speed reading!

          • Bigabu Beaze

            Ah ok! Well it has to be the Japanese VA. Sakura Taisen 3 never came out here.

    • Leon_Tekashi

      Wait…So…Are those like trademarks?

    • Shane Guidaboni

      I hope that doesn’t mean anything. Leave P4 alone already! It’s had enough.

      • Kaetsu

        That’s not true. The end of Arena leaves many things unresolved so an RPG with the P4 and P3(maybe 1&2 because of the Shadow Ops.) would only make sense.

        • Shane Guidaboni

          The only reason there’s anything “unresolved” is because they created more story! It was unnecessary.

        • Anthony

          Those unresolved plot elements could very well be the basis for Persona 4 Arena 2, while the main series moves on to something else.

        • As long as P4A’s sequel is an RPG and not a fighter I’m totally cool with it.

    • RisukuAozora

      What’s Persona 4, Vol 2 for that matter?

  • Luis Ibal

    oh god we are dooomed :(

  • Roberto

    I don’t even know anymore

  • Dark Zerato

    It would be Persona 4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold for consoles.

    • Sadly (well not sadly, I love P4A) that might be the extent of what this is.

    • Lynx

      Already has a website though, doesn’t it?

      Wouldn’t make sense to do two sites.

  • Ciel

    This may actually be disappointing :( I just want a new Persona

  • Nice Boat Quatro

    Persona 4 Christmas Editio—-

    Ouch! It was a joke! Please, don’t hit me there!

  • ZekeFreek

    Teddie gets his own sidescrolling beat-em’up platformer spin-off.

    • Strain42

      I would play that…

  • Strain42

    As someone who isn’t in a rush for P5 and didn’t have my hopes up for it, I would be slightly disappointed if this isn’t P5…I’d be even more disappointed if this IS P5 and just follows more of the P4 characters. Let P5 be its own thing.

    That said, the prospect of a game starring Teddie has been mentioned…I wouldn’t be too opposed to that. Depending on what it is, it could potentially be a fun little title to help bide us over.

    At this point I don’t know. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

    • InfectedAI

      The dark and twisted prequel of how Teddie came to be!

  • surakian

    I want to believe this is a red herring! (Or about Arena…)

  • marclair

    What’s up with the cities listed at the bottom?

  • Jason

    The Teddies start shaking weird and turn into static if you click on all three of them in quick succession

    • brian

      They also seem to change randomly if all three are matched up.

  • Afternoon Intergalactic

    If this isn’t Persona 5 I will be terribly disappointed. As much as I love P4A, I don’t think all this buildup is worth it for P4A:2.

    • brian

      Those faces could be to represent the faces fans would have if it’s revealed to be non-P5.

  • Persona the Highschool musical starring Adachi!

    “I take one bitch and I take one hoe!”

  • PlatinumMad

    Incoming Narukami Returns: Persona 4

    • Kaetsu

      Fine by me. What happens at the end of Arena is unresolved.

    • Naux

      This just made my day.

  • malek86

    I think Persona 4 is now reaching FF13-like levels of “please no more sequels”.

  • Eder García

    it will be Persona 4 part3, developed by Platinum Games, gameplay similar to Metal Gear Rising, for next gen consoles and WiiU with a definitive version for PS4 with Vita cross play one year later #OneCanDream

  • Amagidyne

    I love P4, don’t get me wrong, it’s one of my absolute favourite games…but for god’s sake ATLUS, give it a rest and work on something else.

    I was really hoping this would be for P5, of SMT IV for the EU, but this is just pushing it now.

    • P3 was my favorite one that jazz sound track was epic and the ending priceless.

    • InfectedAI

      They wouldn’t do something like this just to announce an EU localization.

      • Amagidyne

        Maybe, maybe not. When you’re an EU ATLUS fan, you get by on wild speculation and even wilder hopes and dreams.

    • TrueDefault

      Yeah, P4 Golden was a flawless victory! I hope it won’t turn into another endless remix cycle like Street fighter games.

  • darkbartz

    If it’s not Ultimax Suplex, then from the cities being mentioned, it’s gonna be a concert probably, with Persona-focused music. Teddy could be signifying how television-based this new project will be.

    • I hope it’s not that, I’ll rather have just some Ultimax Suplex console testing than a concert I’ll never attend.

  • Who knows, it could be that Atlus is trolling us and it will be a P5 announcemt afterall. We’ll find out in a few days. If it’s not, then this isn’t what the fans have been waiting for since 2008.

  • Kelohmello

    I don’t expect it to be P5. Or any game for that matter. Thinking about it, the fact that it mentions specific cities means it’s likely a concert or something. My hype levels are zero.

    • Naux

      Hmm, now that you mention it, it really is weird if this wasn’t some kind of event they are teasing because of the city names.

    • Grape Monet

      I’d be pretty hyped for a concert if we got a recording out of it besides a blu-ray release.

  • Kaetsu

    I guess this means the next Persona will feature the P4 cast. If the P4 cast is in it then the P3 cast will probably be in it as well.

    • InfectedAI

      Like many others I’d prefer P5 to be all new, but if it includes the P4 AND P3 cast it could be awesome.

  • AFatHouseCat

    The fact that the cities are listed makes me think it’s probably arcade related, or movie/event related? Unless P5 takes place in all those cities but that seems more like a mainline or DeSu SMT idea than Persona.

    • I thought they meant the places in which Atlus would hold a conference or something lol. But I bet it’s probably just what cities the game will be based on or which will it feature (?)

  • Magicks

    Persona 4 for iOS. My money is on that now, and my heart will forever be in shambles. Just like that stupid TWEWY teaser countdown site last year.

    • Nexus

      Ugh, don’t remind me. My world crumbled when I found out it wasn’t the TWEWY sequel announcement that I was so desperately waiting for.

  • Kaetsu

    When the Teddie figures load it looks like there’s static…TV static! It looks like this one has to do with the TV world.

    • Naux

      You sure? I can’t hear a thing. o_o

      EDIT: Ah, nevermind, I see what you meant now.

  • ivanchu77

    I would love to see persona 3:golden, right now we have a ps2 and a psp version each one with their cons and pros, i would like to see a definitive version

    • Lynx

      Portable and FES.

      It doesn’t need a third. None of the originals have gotten third versions so I don’t see how it’d be fair. Those three need remakes, not ports, badly. The original version of 3 still stands up compared to those.

      • ivanchu77

        *Portable lost all the impact in the story with the new visual novel style, not to mention is also missing “the after”

        *FES lacks the gameplay upgrades, the female protagonist and a bunch of new events and social links

        So yeah, a definitive version for Vita would be cool, also it´s a good moment to do it now that we are having the persona 3 movie soon.

  • easter

    Seems like too much marketing hype (of the quiet variety, but still) to simply be another Arena spinoff.

    I expect a mobile game.


  • Mirai

    Funny how this is updated when there’s only 5 days left until this site’s reveal.

    • It makes the waiting much longer, though. Me, for example, I had forgotten about this site at all but now seeing this I bet I’m going to be the whole week wondering what it could be.

      I just hope it isn’t a game for iOS nor Android, also no Persona 4 Arena-2. I want Persona 5! Or at the least some remake or something of the other Persona games.

      • Kaitou21

        They already did that for the other three persona games, you can play the persona 1-3 remakes on psp.


    Come meet Teddie! At these six places! (Note: There will not be any sort of bishonnen inside the costume so don’t even think about taking it off)

    • InfectedAI

      Can’t know for sure unless you take it off.

  • Kumiko Akimoto

    Well it could always be more then one announcement, maybe more info on persona 4 arena 2 will be the highlight and there will be news on other person related things after wards

    He did say development”s”

    • TalesLaw

      Agree you do got a point.

    • SMT

      i was see a novel for Shirogane before, maybe it’s like persona 2.
      or as you say.

  • JustThisOne

    Oh well, I guess that means we’ll be waiting a little longer for P5 then. :’>

  • Charles Parker

    I’d definitely feel weird if the announcement turned out to be something pachinko/slot machine related since if you match up three of the same teddie faces they all start jiggling and swap around. That and Sega Sammie owns Atlus now.

    • Klarktastic

      You know what.. I think I just predicted the future, and somehow, I hate you for it :(

    • Kaetsu

      They wouldn’t make this teaser site and have us wait for months just for a slot machine game in Japan only.

  • leingod

    Private Investigator Teddie for mobiles!

  • Chow

    Less evidence of P5. This is un-bear-able…

    • Syn

      It really does look like a “grizzly” situation now

      • JustThisOne

        I don’t mind waiting a little longer though. It’s not like they’re doing this deli-bear-ately.

  • Guilherme Matheus Silva

    Maybe something happens when you match the three images…

    • Kaitou21

      Tried that, images reshuffle themselves

  • CureMarine

    Ugh, Please don’t be another Persona 4 game. I just want something new already.

  • notforsale

    Persona 4 for 3DS I’m calling it!

  • Ouch My Head Said Dionysus

    I knew it–no P5. Probably location testing for P4A2

  • Well, I just hope this is a new Persona game for the consoles.

  • Gekokujou

    Is this going to be a BEARsona game starring Teddie instead? I’d hit it.

  • AAa

    Atlus will be the d*ckest company, after Capcom/SE. At least they manage to calm down the raging fans with SB4/KH3(orFFXV), if they released it as P4:movie or something that still continued during P4Arena. If it’s P5 happened after P4. Well a bit let-down but it’ll be fine; Finger’s crossed with Labrys’ red eyes and New Persona arena’s chara red hair matching the red background.

  • Guest

    Well, it might actually be something P4 related. Seriously.

  • Asukai Kari

    The city and the places reminds me of a Shin megami tensei devil survivor game but it has Teddy in it so Devil Survivor 3 with Persona characters? I doubt it but it just a theory of mine but if it another P4 part 2 I’m up for it

  • Karin Shita

    Maybe it’s a Persona 4 Complex (something) tournament. xD I mean, it shows cities at the bottom. XD

  • RablaAndrews

    Well, considering people also just found this


  • TrueDefault

    Persona 4 – part 2: Nanako is the main character edition!!

  • Kaitou21

    well this is bear-ly what I was expecting or hoping for, any chance of P5 was just shot out of the window with a click of a button.

  • Servant BerserCAR

    Persona 4: Teddy’s Journey

    no… no no no no NO NOOOOOO!

    • JohnNiles

      Teddie will not rest until he scores.

  • Rake

    Slot Mach– *Gets shot*

  • P4 have enough milking… give us new persona plse



  • hazelnut1112

    Persona 4-2

  • DragKudo

    I feel like i went back in time. Guys you do remember arna 2 is coming out and is going to continue the story the cliffhanged amd we already know they survive because of the golden ending. Why the hell would you want another p3 remake and or port of a remake come on guys. Thry need to move onfrom p3 and 4. Give us something new or go back to the roots. On my vita thats why my post looks terrible.

  • Alexander Aubert

    i’m not gonna give up my hope about P5, but seriously if this another milking of P4 i already have enough.

  • Calling 3DS port of P4.

  • Micah Gajewski

    Look at the teaser sites style red art style; then look at P4 Arena 2’s character select menu. The style is identical; and with as much emphasis as the Persona series puts on style… there is no doubt to me now that this is fro the new Arena game. Sorry guys.

    • DragKudo

      But the game was already announced why make another teaser site?

  • Maijun Jamdee

    If this ends up as more of a Persona 4 sequel, I’d be kinda disappointed. Though I wouldn’t be surprised. Persona 4 got a lot of reception.

    But they could be just tricking us. The Teddies are meant to get us off track maybe? I don’t know. But every Persona game (excluding Arena and stuff like that. (Golden counts though)) has a standalone story, so the fact that Persona 5 will be a Persona 4 sequel or whatever is just somewhat unlikely.

    (and if you’re going to rage at me for getting my facts wrong, I’m sorry! I’m not as much of a gamer as you guys!!!! And also, I hope there’s going to be a male and female protagonist like in P3P)
