    You forgot the ‘kiko’.

    • thrak

      There is never enough of that swag

    • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

      Fixed! All kikos present and accounted for.

  • Desk

    lacy unmentionables!!

  • Namuro

    Yu is such a boss that he gets two trailers in one article!

    *dang it, it’s been fixed…

    • thrak

      He deserves his own anime, Yu Yu Narukami

      • CptPokerface

        The smile bomb intro remade with persona characters would be amazing. So 90′s.

  • Spirit Macardi

    The dynamic duo: Johnny Yong Bosch and Yuri Lowenthal!

    With Johnny being absent from games lately and Yuri being absent from anime, it’s been a while since the two of them last showed up together. You can’t keep Lelouch and Suzaku apart forever though x3

  • KuroNathan

    wait wait wait, did he just KO someone at 40%? Damnit Yu stop being S tier

    • TheBlackRabbit

      YOU HAVE NO IDEA
      He can KO at 70%

      • Sky

        After seeing a gif that can literally take out an opponents HP is beyond ridiculous! Not to mention S. Yu can do a low more than Yu (normal version).

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      It’s not the character, but the player! Someday that might be you Kuro-chan!! :x

      • KuroNathan

        no that’s entirely the char. It took him 150 meter but that was kill from 40% with no possibility of dropping

        • MrSirFeatherFang

          The character can’t move on his own, silly *___*
          But yeah I know what you mean lol

        • MrSirFeatherFang

          The character can’t move on his own, silly *___*
          But yeah I know what you mean lol

        • Sky

          That’s his secret super he’s able to use with all 150 SP in awakening mode. It does good damage, but not worth using.

    • Dekukaja

      Everybody can do 40% damage in a simple enough combo, but this one was just the super doing raw damage.

      Now if you want to be scared, think about the fact that Yosuke can also lop off 4k health on a hitconfirm. (and if you don’t know what that means, it’s basically, “did I hit? oh I did? oh ok then goodbye.”

      • KuroNathan

        yeah but you can burst out of combos at least. This is a super combo unburstable dead at 40%

        • James Reilly

          Your all casually forgetting this super costs 150 meter (Which means he will have to be in a awaken to be able to do it in the first place) which is far from optimal. It’s just another stylish tool they gave Yu because he is MC. Aigis got another super like this too which requires zero bullets and other requirements for a flashy yet unoptimal super.

          Yu is S tier simply because of him being able to do everything pretty well. Him losing the braindead Oki into 5D setups was a small price for giving him tons of new stuff (New Stab Super, Air Zio, Command Slash/Throw/etc) and buffed persona normals.

          • k.b.a.

            i’ll be blunt. as long as you and dekujaja keep it real i’ll keep upvoting your stuff. nothing wrong with teaching people about how the fighting part actually works

          • Creed1217

            Also this super is like a six button input super

  • Laith Rem

    I love that new super from Yu, seriously.

  • Brandonmkii

    I’m still not over the fact that Yu can talk.

    • TheBlackRabbit

      Im glad he can

      • Brandonmkii

        Honestly I think this is the first time I’ve heard him say anything in earnest.

      • otakumike

        Same, I hope the protag in P5 actually talks.

    • NeptuniasBeard

      Really? At this point, he’s been talking in more things than he hasn’t lol.

  • NeptuniasBeard

    Dat yosuke combo at the end!

    • Dekukaja

      And the second half of it is literally just auto-combo. Yosuke’s gonna be real good this time around.

      • Byron Kerrison II

        Like he wasn’t before…

        • Dekukaja

          ESPECIALLY good.

          If you thought he was untouchable before, most of his moves, a lot of his moves are beyond safe now.

          • Shade DMessiah

            So glad i didn’t give up on him~

        • James Reilly

          He was mediocre before since he had no real way to keep up pressure due to lack of knockdowns. He kept doing sub-par damage that keeps resetting things to neutral which was bad. Him having a V-Slash and the other buffs he got really made things favorable for him now.

          • Dekukaja

            I think mediocre is an unfair way of putting it. His biggest flaws were just the fact that he had low health and his moves didn’t do a lot of damage, and left him in very unsafe situations if blocked.

            Resetting to neutral is a good thing for Yosuke since he has one of the best neutral games in P4A, and all his moves and buffs favor him safely going back to neutral if they’re blocked or even if you just want to end a combo. His dash will flip away or behind the enemy instead of in their face, D Mirage Slash teleports behind them on block, and his Sukukaja 5A is a half-screen teleport slash, all of which help his crossup game, which was already godlike. So he can really go from neutral to heavy pressure and back to neutral like nothing.

            I will say that V-Slash is a godsend though. Being able to turn a ground combo into an air combo and vice versa at will (plus the fact that moonsaults don’t take up air actions, giving more midair options) is making him really dangerous and versatile this time around instead of just running around doing “Yosuke damage.”.

  • NeptuniasBeard

    Yu can only be defeated because ATLUS decided to seal away his TRUE power.

    • Shippoyasha

      Naoto would be proud of your detective skills.

      • God

        Never understood why they treat her like a genius, she’s got the deducting skills of any regular teenager who has read/watched/played his share of fiction.

        • Byron Kerrison II

          Because aside from the Protagonist, she’s the only other character who is Genre Savvy.

          • God

            Chie made 70% of the investigation team’s Breakthroughs.

        • Shippoyasha

          She did a good job in knowing that the cover story by the police wasn’t to be believed though. And she followed the main group pretty early into the investigation. Let’s not forget she was all alone for several months of the investigation.

          • God

            What does being alone have to with deduction skills? And she knew the cover story was fake beacuse she worked on the goddamn case!

          • Shippoyasha

            Ok. So you just don’t want to give her any credit. Fine then.

    • ReMeDyIII

      “Steven! What did I tell you about talking with the civvies! Shutup!”

      • Steven Higgins

        OMG I TOTALLY READ THAT IN HIS VOICE! AWSOME HAHA!

  • Mirai

    If you guys notice in Yu’s trailer at 0:07 you’ll realise that’s not Yu’s portrait its his shadows’. So this is actually Shadow Yu’s trailer.

    • Surgeon of Death

      Your profile pic does things to my head 0.o

  • NeoStrayCat

    Yu can never/always have enough “Y”s! A 3 “Y” character trailer spectacular, lol. :3

  • I see like this 。゚+.ღ(ゝ◡ ⚈᷀᷁ღ)

    Eh the English trailers give off an underwhelming feel mainly yu’s were the hell was the NANAKO!!!!!!!!!! lol

  • Triplicity

    Was my picture too large? Did you think I wasn’t being serious? Yu and Yosuke are strong this time around too.

    • Sky

      The true power of bros.

  • David García Abril

    I’m 25 hours in in “Persona 4 Golden”.

    I still can’t believe I didn’t play this MASTER PIECE for so long…

    If I rush, will I be on time to play this one? lol

    • Dekukaja

      You don’t even have to rush, unless you have no time at all to play.

      The real problem would be getting through P3 since it’s something like 100 hours (plus 20 more for The Answer) and Ultimax is seemingly going to be more P3-oriented.

    • Andy Abramo

      In my opinion, don’t rush it. Just enjoy it. Best 200 hours of my life.

    • Sky

      If you want to finish this game really quickly, you can farm the golden hands to gain more experience. Including messing with the customization settings to gain more exp. Which i did a lot.. but played on normal on my first try. You can easily level up in Golden.

  • thrak

    Yu is so manly that even male chromosome Y is named after him

  • ReMeDyIII

    Wait, I thought Yu was named David. My whole life has been a lie!
