First Look At Adachi In Persona 4 Arena Ultimax

By Ishaan . June 4, 2014 . 11:27am

This week’s issue of Famitsu magazine reveals Adachi as a DLC character in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, and while the magazine has yet to put its report on its website, they have published a couple of screenshots of the character.

 

 

As mentioned in a previous report, Adachi uses Magatsu-Izanagi as his Persona, and will have his own story in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax. While he is a DLC character, the game’s first-print run will allow buyers to avail him for free.

    Does his finishing move involve throwing someone into a TV?

    • DeAndre Atchison

      I prefer he use an onslaught of cabbages to smother you.

  • Zonic505

    Oh man, his title is something among the lines of “Totally Egocentric Cabbage Detective”.

    • Brandonmkii

      I saw cabbage and was like wtf

    I feel sorry for the people who are playing Persona 4 for the first time and then they see this news all over gaming websites

    • Highasthesky

      True, but at this point it’s like not knowing your rival is the champion of the elite four in red and blue.

        DON’T USE AERIS

        • Highasthesky

          I typed in “pokemon AERIS” in google and got some GREAT pictures, I don’t know what the intention of this comment was, but thank you.

            It was an FF7 reference in the same vein of all of the other old spoilers people can’t expect anyone to actively hide anymore.

        • ZnTxn

          DON’T USE JEIGAN

        • 하세요

          This reminds me of my friend who played through P3 the first time. “I just got this Shinji guy, but his Persona only has one move. Why’s that?”

          “Oh…no reason…he…levels up…slow…? Don’t use him. He uh, sucks? Yeah yeah.”

          Maybe I catch onto stuff better, but in any RPG when I get a character that has a suspicious movepool, I know he/she either dies or turns bad.

          • http://www.youtube.com/user/xxHiryuuxx Kaleido-Ruby

            Well, that’s just you having the problem of being insightful. :/

          • 하세요

            It’s both a blessing and a curse <_< It's why I don't go to the movies with friends. I analyze things too quickly and usually guess the ending. I look at stories like puzzles and have fun putting them together before they fully unfold. To some it's awesome, to others I'm a buzzkill. Whatevuhs.

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/xxHiryuuxx Kaleido-Ruby

      The original came out in North America six years ago. When do you want to line the statute of limitations for a spoiler at this point?

      • kaotron

        and it’s not like p4 is some super niche/current game that everyone is still playing.

        what’s next, are people going to complain if I tell them that darth vader is luke’s father?

        • DeAndre Atchison

          Or that Luke is really a 7 year old replica

          • lackofstyle

            Hey, I just found that out the other day!

          • Alphabet Soup

            Tales of Star Wars…make it happen, Namco Bandai, if Square Enix can pull off Kingdom Hearts, you can do this!

          • DeAndre Atchison

            Disney owns star wars, so I doubt that

          • Robert Kupper

            Oh lord I hope we don’t see star wars characters in the next Kingdom hearts.

        • Shippoyasha

          There are new P4 players all the time from what I am seeing in Gamefaqs and 4chan. There are even new FF7 players. A lot of kids are discovering games after all.

          • Alestaos

            Also P4G would of brought in new players who didnt get to play P4 for whatever reason such as there PS2 broke didnt have the money for a launch PS3 so waited. Also ones who are “oh that looks cool ill buy that for my vita or for my child and there vita”.

            P4 Has never stopped having new players or passionate players, same with P3.

          • DeAndre Atchison

            Not to mention both are on psn for 10 each

        • Sperium3000

          “Have you seen The Passion yet? Here’s a spoiler for you: JESUS DIES.”

            snape kills dombledore

        • https://twitter.com/LLCoolOyd Lloyd

          Vader is who’s father?! WHAT THE HELL, MAN! SPOILERS!!!

          • kaotron

            lol, and sephiroth kills aerith(for those out there still playing FF7)

        • arkane9

          That is a bad example after prequels were released. People who watch the prequels first now will know that already by the time they watch Empire Strikes Back.

          • kaotron

            yeah, I was just trying to joke about a plot point that was already well known in the mainstream. And back in the day telling people that vader was his father was a spoiler that would’ve actually pissed some people off.

            But I guess some people may be currently playing p4 and some probably for the first time because of that golden port but the point is that after 6+ years a game/movie spoiler shouldnt be all that surprising.

            I was spoiled about bioshock’s ending but I still found the the game and story fun.

        • kmantle

          There are places were those games are very niche. I, for example, live in a country where EVERYTHING is a FPS or a Fifa game, so obtaining any non-FF RPG is stupidly hard (and very expensive, in some cases).

          I literally just found a P3 FES copy about a few weeks ago, but I already know that the MC dies thanks to a Persona Q post on youtube (huge mistake, I know)

          And the Joker’s identity in P2 Sin

          • kaotron

            I know what you mean, where I live most gamers I know either plays fps, fifa/nfl or 2k basketball games and think that rpgs suck in general.

            I’ve never been all that much into sport games even though I like sports, since I never really found watching people play fun.

          • ReMeDyIII

            Thanks a lot kmantle for the P3 spoiler btw. I’m still playing the game having picked up Persona 3 Portable. I’ll be sure to remember you when I get to that part.

      • Steven Higgins

        Eh, my personal rule is 10 years.

      • Robert Kupper

        I think you are missing the distinction between “Sucks for those people” and “They shouldn’t do this.”.

      • arkane9

        The Vita release was less than 2 years ago, and the PS2 version is scheduled to be released on PS3.

        Either way, there should at least be 10 years for spoilers. I only finished P4 a few years ago. I would be pissed if I had picked up the Vita version recently and was in the middle of it.

    • Astraye

      They’ll juste know that Adachi has a persona, they dont really know who he truly is without playing the game.

    • Steven Higgins

      If they don’t wan’t to be spoiled, then it is their responsibility to stay away from articles like this.

      • arkane9

        It’s hard to stay away from a spoiler that appears on the front page.

        • Steven Higgins

          Hard, but not impossible. It’s hard not to grab a burger when you’re hungry and don’t feel like cooking but you CAN resist.

    • kmantle

      From Kotaku

      ‘Yes, Persona 4 is a classic that came out 6 years ago. Yes,
      everyone and their brother should play it. Still, I don’t think that
      means it’s safe to reveal one of the pivotal plot points of the game.
      Especially when you already have plans to re-release the game on the PS3. It’s kind of ironic considering Atlus’ recent plea that people not spoil the plot of Persona Q.’

  • DeAndre Atchison

    He looks too happy to fight in a TV world

    • Brandonmkii

      Why wouldn’t he be happy? He’s basically punching everyone he hates in the face.

      • Landale

        He doesn’t really hate them though. It’s more like he’s happy because it’s certainly not boring.

    • Digidyne017

      You mean sane.

  • AuraGuyChris

    Isn’t there a way to cover the massive spoiler on the front page? Or is it okay for everyone to know how psychotic he is without playing the game?

    • Landale

      To be fair, that’s less a straight up crazy face and more of a “maybe crazy, maybe completely freaked the hell out” face. If you see it without knowing the twist, the freaked out interpretation is easy to come to.

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      If they don’t know by now they are probably new to the internet.

    • kaotron

      behold, my paint skills.

      • AuraGuyChris

        Awesome.

    • 하세요

      Game’s been out since what, 2008? And this is the third in the series story-wise. If you don’t know by now, then you obviously just don’t care for Persona 4 as a whole.

      • arkane9

        That’s a pretty self-centered comment. What if I waited for the Vita version to go on sale and only recently started playing it. A lot of people don’t play a game as soon as it comes out.

  • Fairlee

    DAT SMUG MUG. <3

  • DesmaX

    Oh, and here’s the first look on the western version:

    • DragKudo

      MINAZUKI sounds like Todd Haberkorn
      And Sho sounds like Bryce Papenbrook and Vic
      Please let be those two.

      • IS | 桂木

        Nope, Todd is voicing both Shos

        • Guest

          Yeah :D He just confirmed it himself. AHHhhhh

        • I see like this 。゚+.ღ(ゝ◡ ⚈᷀᷁ღ)

          Well that sucks jp VA’s for me :/ still can’t stand the voice after trying to listen to it.

          • 하세요

            I wish they did what Capcom does and allow individual voices. I like some JP voices more, but I really don’t like Elizabeth’s JP voice. Her alone is the reason I play P4A in English, being she’s my only character and all.

          • I see like this 。゚+.ღ(ゝ◡ ⚈᷀᷁ღ)

            True I didn’t mind the English for P4a besides yuki,chie an a couple others I mainly use the Jp VA’s because of my mains but I’m not going to play story for this game with English now because anything that’s supposed to be serious/emotional will prolly be butchered an I really like sho’s JP voice.

          • Tienron

            well girl, the full Japanese version is there for you to enjoy. :)

        • DragKudo

          HYPED!!

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

            In that case then, he better pull off one heck of a SHO.

  • Hagaren

    His face in the second pic! Welcome to the Arena, Adachi.

  • Kumiko Akimoto

    I kinda wonder what his story is considering he did slightly reform after being having Izanami’s influence disappear from him.

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

      I do hope his story is his starting road to redemption. Whilst keeping that snarky, villainous mannerism for appeal.

  • Afternoon Intergalactic

    He looks so evil. I love it.

    • leingod

      Teddy!

      • hng qtr

        Remember: Ken is a playable character now.

        • leingod

          Right! But somehow I believe he won’t be as annoying now that he’s grown up and stuff.

        • Herok♞

          So we can use Ken to beat up teddy or yukari,

  • Stephen Mc Devitt

    He seems rather cheery. I’m stuck against Shadow Mitsuo but doesn’t Adachi reveal a rather evil face in the end?

    http://static.giantbomb.com/uploads/original/16/161095/2256358-2012_07_02_195724.jpg

    Why is he all cheerful on this one? Is he on drugs or was the murderous side of him really his shadow.

    • Shippoyasha

      I kind of think happy Adachi was creepier than the angry one. It’s harder to gauge him.

      • Stephen Mc Devitt

        Perhaps we can assume his temper tantrum mode is his shadow mode then.

        “I am you and you are me.”

    • God

      He is not really evil, it’s just presented that way beacuse he is an antagonist, with views that are completely different that the Main Character’s, he is just quite bored of pretty much everything, and you know, a persona tournament in a town completely covered by a mysterious red fog certainly sounds like fun.

      • Stephen Mc Devitt

        But he still killed people and he’s sexist. To me, he’s a villain even if he’s not behind the Midnight Channel in the first place. Same goes with Mitsuo.

        • God

          I could argue about that, but if that’s how you see it, it would simply be pointless, all i can say that there is no such thing as absolute evil.

          • Stephen Mc Devitt

            But there’s also a thing called Moral Event Horizon, crossing from evil to irredeemably evil say for example Griffith from Berserk. Could anyone really forgive his horrific acts of malice, hate and betrayal?

          • God

            I have had this discussion too many times, and i really don’t want to have it again, for me, it’s pointless, it takes too long and i don’t really get anything out of it.

          • Robert Kupper

            Moral relativism is all fine and good, but don’t take it too far. Adachi is a horrible person who cares nothing for the suffering of others as long as he gets his way. He is a very bad man.

          • Göran Isacson

            Robert Kupper, you do good work. God, I better hope this is some of that Job-shit again and you’re just testing us.

          • God

            I really don’t want to argue about it, it takes too long and i really don’t get anything out of it.

          In regards to the deaths, one was accidental and one was basically a test. Shortly after that point deaths were the last thing he wanted, as that would end the one thing he found amusing.
          Not saying that he wouldn’t be classified as evil, just that the kills specifically were not a detail that falls under the label.

          • SeventhEvening

            As far as actual killing, maybe you’re right, but the guy was definitely sleazy. To me it seemed very clear he intended to sexually assault his first victim when he discovered what he could do. It might have become a game to him afterward, but he was dangerous before the Midnight Channel incidents.

    Also,if this is his human form, how is his shadow? Even more insane

    • Land of Green Pasture

      he has no shadow, for he is THE LORD OF SHADOW himself, puhuhuhuhuhuhuhuhu

    • God

      Adachi has complete control of his Shadow, if they attempt to create one, it will probably fail, followed by the malevolent entity (Nyarlethotep?) commenting on how he is an interesting human or something like that.

  • TheGioG

    Didn’t the devs plan Nanako as a fighter at one point? C’mon ArkSys and Atlus, don’t hold back on the best potential DLC character yet.

      I still think it would be really awkward to beat her up. If they play her in like Maya with Phoenix Wright in MvC3, I’d be okay.

    • Warboss Aohd

      that Image is fantastic.

      Would Still rather have Dojima with a Persona though.

      Also Nanako with one.

    • Steven Higgins

      Never planned, they just joked about Dojima being playable with having Nanako assisting instead of having a Persona.
      I repeat. It was a joke.
      Rather, I’d like to see Taro Namatame playable, if only to see what his version of Izanagi looks like.

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

        Aw, I was looking forward to Dojima’s Coffee Splash too….

        • DeAndre Atchison

          Shouldve stuck with cream and suger.

            “..What are you, Nanako?”

          • DeAndre Atchison

            Nah. She wants it black. Too bitter for me

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

            Well, guess that leaves something like “surprise me.”

      • SteveThompson1

        Namatame doesn’t have a persona. And unless he is of the fool arcana like yu and adachi, he won’t have izanagi.

        • Steven Higgins

          You have to have a persona in order to enter the TV world or be escorted by someone who does.

          “Izanami grated personas to three individuals representing Hope, Despair and Emptiness. the protagonist symbolized hope which is why his version of Izanagi is pure, Adachi represented emptiness which is why his is corrupted and Namatami represented despair. As Namitami is overtaken by a shadow in the battle against him it is unknown what his version of Izanagi looks like. It is likely that the reason both the protagonist and Adachi have Izangi is because they were both awakened by Izanami”

          So yes, Namatami DOES have a persona and it IS Izanagi because he was awakened by Izanami just like Yu and Adachi.

    • Christopher Pedersen

      Nope — Word of god have already said it won’t happen.

    • Parismio

      If they were the persona versions of hitgirl and big daddy.

  • Astraye

    So now we need an announcement of Marie and Margaret as playable characters !

  • Yan Zhao

    Can Dojima be playable too? Needs someone to beat Adachi’s ass lol.

    I only just finished P4G a few days ago. I know if I had seen this before finding out in the game, I would have been all “WHAAAAAAT?”, and so upset.

    This hypes me so much. I adore Adachi, in my opinion he’s one of the best villains in the history of villains in video games. The second this man becomes available as DLC, he’ll be mine.

    Playable Adachi = Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is game of the year, every year

  • Robert Kupper

    I have never been so hyped for a character in a game. Adachi is my favorite video game villain ever. Even if I hate his playstyle, I can’t imagine not main-ing him.

    • Lusankya

      Yeah, I also really like him as a villain. Usually villains in video games/animes/mangas/comics etc have way too elaborate motives for being bad and stuff. Adachi feels more realistic and is actually a nice change from the usual suspects.

      • Robert Kupper

        I love over the top plots in the right setting, but its refreshing to just have someone be bad because they are. I was not expecting a bored Psychopath to be the primary antagonist of a JRPG. :P

        I was a bit sad that the true ending kind of pushed away from that.

    • 하세요

      I liked him, but the fact that he was partially possessed lowers his rank for me a little bit, even if he kind of cray cray. Then again, it’s tough to top Kefka for me.

      • Robert Kupper

        Kefka is up there for sure. Ocelot Revolver Also comes to mind.

  • Nitraion

    LOL I can imagine he will be friendly with his shadow version…

    Can’t wait to pair Adachi against Narukami. Izanagi vs. Magatsu-Izanagi. Adachi or Sho (the one with a persona) will probably be my new mains

      If it makes you feel any better, I knew the whole plot of P4 before going into it, and it still managed to become one of my favorite games in general. Experience definitely trumps plot in some cases.

      Why would you click on an article about a sequel (to ANOTHER sequel!) of a game you haven’t even finished yet? Of course there would be spoilers.

          Persona 4 came out in 2008. It’s been six years. SIX YEARS. Since, it’s had a remake AND a sequel in 2012, two years ago, and now another sequel to the first sequel is coming out this year… I just can’t feel sorry for anyone who feels spoiled at this point. That would be like saying Darth Vader’s, “Luke, I am your father,” is a spoiler. There comes a point in a story’s life where people should be allowed to discuss it freely in public forums. Persona 4 passed that point no less than two years ago.

            Six years is not enough. At least ten years. Thinking otherwise is pretty self-centered and inconsiderate.

            And some wait for a game to go on sale. What if I never had a PS2 and just picked up the Vita version recently and had started playing it?

            Darth Vader is bad example since most people these days watch the prequels first and already know Vader’s identity.

            We’ll just have to agree to disagree. With how quickly franchises advance, especially game franchises, ten years is WAY too long a wait. That’s an ETERNITY in Internet Time. Heck, that’s virtually two generations in the consumer tech market, possibly more with the way things advance these days. :O

            Persona 3 was also a prequel to Persona 4 itself — didn’t stop tons of people from playing P4 first, even though P3 leads into Persona 4 (even including appearances of P3 characters within P4′s story), which leads into Persona 4 Arena, which contains appropriately aged Persona 3 characters, which leads into Persona 4 Arena 2/Ultimax, which has even MORE Persona 3 characters, as well as the return of a P4 character; Persona 3 came out in like 2006, which means there’s even LESS reason for me to feel sorry for someone getting spoiled by COMMENTS in an article about a story installment that’s already had numerous past installments that they shouldn’t even be READING if they’re still playing games PRIOR to the chronology of THIS game! That’d be like complaining about seeing a spoiler about Volume Two of a book series in a comment section of an article about Volume FOUR of that same series. It’s no one’s fault but their own. What did they THINK they would find in the comments? Of COURSE the fans are going to be talking about things that happen later in the series in the comment section of an article about an installment that’s LATER IN THE SERIES. It’s common sense, isn’t it? :S

            As for the Star Wars thing: ask any Star Wars fan and they’ll still recommend viewing the movies in their intended viewing order: original trilogy first. Anyone who doesn’t follow that advice laid out for all to see in any Star Wars fan community have only themselves to blame for not getting to feel the same sense of “WHOA” that watching the original trilogy first brings. The prequel trilogy was a disappointment anyway…but that’s beside the point. :/

            I have little issue with most of what you say – finding P4 spoilers in a sequel’s article is not unusual, unfortunate though it may be.

            But a prequel is a sequel that happens chronologically earlier. Persona 3 was released first, so it is not a prequel, as you said it was. Persona 3 did not lead into Persona 4 in any way. Before Arena and Ultimax, Persona 3 and Persona 4 had unrelated plots. They did exist in the same universe, and the characters had the same power, but that was their only real connection. Minor Persona 3 characters appeared in Persona 4. But nothing related to the plot. None of the playable characters appeared – just one side quest character, a few tertiary supporting characters, and three locations.

            Blaming someone for being spoiled for the plot of Persona 4 (especially when they’re likely talking about P4 Golden, released only 2 years ago) because of *Persona 3* being released 8 years ago, is an incredibly odd idea.

            Now, if you said “This is a sequel to Persona 3 and Persona 4. So, you shouldn’t be surprised if spoilers to Persona 3 and Persona 4 appear”, that would be one thing, and I could agree with that. But you just went and mentioned P3 for the strangest of reasons.

        i checked because Adachi came up~ i was like~
        hey why is adachi part of a fighting game? wasnt he useless in game i havent even leveled his social yet (currently at 2)??? *reads comment section* … NNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooooooo~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  • Arz

    Awwwww yiisss

  • Göran Isacson

    Huh. so he has a gun for his weapon, like Naoto, but fights with a version of Soujis persona? That’s a funny mix.

  • SteveThompson1

    adachi baby

  • chroma816

    I really like how he still has his fucking smirk in the in-battle screenshot. Glorious.

  • Rawindra

    Only left are Makoto Yuuki (iai & Yu’s 2P rival), Theodore (likely, because he appears in the game), Manami Yuuki/FeMC (i think “Manami” is a cute name. Yet another staff/spear fighter) & Nanako (rather start as Solo (in Persona’s development state) to see how she survived in Red Fog alone. dual blaygun would be good).

    Still waiting for Characters vs. other Characters BGM theme & story cg update (pre-battle (same one from Arcade’s Vs. Screen) & defeated)

    • Mr_SP

      This is just weird. Theodore… maybe. But Margaret isn’t playable, then Theodore isn’t really likely. But the rest are worse. P3MC is pretty dead. FeMC is also pretty dead, and can’t be in the same timeline as himself.

      But the really bizarre one… 7 year old dual blade-gun Nanako. I just… WTF? Why would you even bring that up!? She’s 7! You can’t fight 7 year olds! And blade-gun! How could she even lift something like that!?

      If the 37 DLC cards are anything to go by, there may be at the very least the possibility of at least ONE MORE character. With all the cards being playable characters thus far, it is reasonable to assume #36 and #37 will be either: a single character and their shadow type, or two separate characters.

      Take the amount of characters we have now, double it and minus the amount of characters who don’t have Shadow mode (Both Shos, Liz, Shadow Labby and apparently Adachi) and you get 35. Adachi, the latest addition to the roster, is entry No. 35.

      http://www.inside-games.jp/imgs/zoom/483510.jpg

      Either the remaining 2 are not characters or there’s at least one more character. But unlike after Ken’s reveal where there was still a “coming soon” box, there is none now so maybe they’re deliberately hiding the existence of this potential character (or characters).

      It should also be noted that Makoto’s BGM (“Burn My Dread -Last Battle-”) is the ONLY battle song missing from Ultimax’s tracklist so far. Formerly, “A New World Fool” (Adachi’s theme) was missing up until his reveal. That could be hinting at something.

      Basically what I am saying is, there is is a big chance Makoto is the final character to be unveiled if #36 and #37 are playable characters like No.1-No.35.

      Nanako, Theodore, and FeMC definitely aren’t happening, though.

  • Mc-kun

    welp new main.

    I’m excited and threatened at the same time.
