In addition to Yukari and Junpei from Persona 3, Persona 4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold has a new character. Well, technically *two* new characters. There are two versions Sho Minazuki, a red-haired newcomer that wields two swords. One character is called "Sho Minazuki" written in kanji and another "Sho Minazuki" written in katakana. To make this less confusing we’ll call the Sho Minazuki with a katakana name "Sho" and the other one "Minazuki."
While Minazuki is in the arcade game, Sho is a time release character. You won’t be able to play as Sho until December 19. Arc System Works tried time release characters before with BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma.
Sho has Tsukiyomi as a persona and a different moveset. One of his attacks drains the other player’s HP and SP. His super move, Wings of Purgatory, shoots a giant wave in front of him. Persona 4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold is out in arcades now and coming to PlayStation 3 in summer 2014.
