Nanako Style Yu And Shinjiro Style Ken Are Persona 4 Arena Ultimax Color Variations

By Spencer . August 20, 2014 . 11:15pm


Tired of the standard Persona costumes? Just like Arc System Works other games, players can customize Persona 4 Arena Ultimax fighters by picking a color variation. Some color variations will be distributed as downloadable content like Nanako style Yu Narukami, which is a bonus with the August 28 issue of Famitsu magazine in Japan.


Yu (Nanako style)



Elizabeth (Persona Q nurse style)



Shadow Labyrs (Yukiko style)



Ken (Shinjiro style)



Mitsuru (Persona 4 Ultimax Yukari style)



Marie (Naoto style)




The Marie color variation will only be available if you get Marie as a DLC character. In North America, Marie will be free for the first week the game comes out. Atlus USA has not announced these colors in the West, but if they do come over they won’t be through Famitsu.

    He really earned his siscon title, huh.

    Good on you, Yu.

    That Shadow Labrys palette hnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnngh.

    • Yeah, with that palette, the title became full circle.

  • Justin Graham

    Evil, bloodthirsty robot Yukiko…

    BRB writing a fanfic! One that is definitely NOT pornographic in any way no none whatsoever!

  • chroma816

    Oh shit, Yu is pimpin’ in those Nanoko color scheme. Siscon Kingpin indeed.

    Most of the color variants look really good, minus Mitsuru. I actually really like Shinjiro!Ken.

  • Issei Hyoudou

    Kanji also had a Iron Tager skin

  • DragKudo

    I hope Ken says did ya see that Shinji after beating Akihiko in a match.

    • Dwight Goodman

      That or “Adios, asshole.”

  • Raze

    lol Mitsuru looks weird with that

    Ken with Shinjiro style looks cool

  • aizen310

    Recolors are NOT costumes nor styles.

    Other than that, some of the recolors are a nice touch, indeed :)

    • Afternoon Intergalactic

      I really wish that adding alternate costumes in the game was a feasible task, I would really go crazy over playing Yukiko in her princess dress or Kanji in his sauna towel. Too bad that would mean re-drawing every single frame.

      • aizen310

        Considering we have Shadow vesions of the fighters, your idea is actually makes a lot of sense.

        The only 2D fighter I remember to have 2 costumes was Street Fighter Alpha 3, where choosing the X-ism style gave Chun-li her traditional SF2 outfit.

        • Demi-Friend

          The most recent examples of 2D skins are
          in the latest Blazblue where there was new Noel and old Noel, and in KOFXIII where it has school uniform Kyo and modern Kyo with a leather jacket.

    Reaction to Yu as Nanako: Awww

    Reaction to Ken as Shinjiro: Awww

    In two very different ways…

  • Afternoon Intergalactic

    So Shadow Labrys needs to further assert her dominance in the Yukiko matchup…. by making it seem like a mirror. Great.

  • MinakoArisato

    Ken in Shinjiro’s colors… The irony!

  • Misty Dawson

    Hmm cool. Though Ken.. ugh. He disgusts me D:

  • ThatDamnCanadian

    Not really liking that Mitsuru palette

  • ThatGuy3190_7

    Yu’s reminder to everyone to never touch his precious Nanako.

  • ShinNeoGranzon

    Other than Mitsuru’s, I would probably use these palettes

  • May_Patra

    Damn… Shinjiro style Ken. Atlus sure loves to twist the knife.

    Yu’s new color scheme is awesome though.
    Hope we’ll get those in the West too. :)

  • s07195

    Really like all these new variations other than Mitsuru’s.

  • Göran Isacson

    Yu in Nanako style, all day, everyday. I need something like that to heal the wounds of Shinjiro style Ken :(

  • Ultraviolet

    Ken as Shinjiro is awesome, despite the… truckload of feels. Koro also looks nice with Teddie’s palette.

  • Do Tien

    I thought the correct term was “pallett-swap”. Never seen anyone uses “style” before. It sounds weird to me :/

  • Satoshi Ookami

    Yu is badass in everything xD Sasuga Siscon banchou =D

    And Marie looks like… Marie :D Cute as always =D

  • James Reilly

    Wonder if these magazine colors will actually end up being dlc this time.

  • 하세요

    Yu’s outfit is the definition of “Kawaii in the streets, senpai in the sheets.”

    • Snorlaxation

      Stop, I can’t breathe!

  • Jin Kisaragi

    Mitsuru looks great in any color.

  • Jeffrey of Mirrah

    That Naoto colored Marie looks awesome! Seriously can’t wait to try Marie out along with Yukari and Junpei

  • KanjiLikesBoys

    Nanako style made me think he’d have her voice or a shield made of her face. Don’t go getting my hopes up

  • Snorlaxation

    I love all of these. So much. DAMN!

  • Lazulis

    O-oh…that Shinjiro palette swap for Ken…it looks so good but oh god those feels

  • Kornelious

    And here I was thinking of NOT using Ken, This pallet swap will ALWAYS be set for me now! :D
