Persona 4 Arena Ultimax Shows Margaret And Her Personas In Action

By Sato . August 21, 2014 . 12:59pm


Atlus recently announced that Margaret will join her sister as a playable character in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax. In the latest of the game’s videos, we get to see Margaret, the “Handsome Man-Keeping Super Sadistic Secretary”.



Margaret’s video starts out with her wondering how the fate of an earlier visitor to the Velvet Room will end. She is then seen talking to the others of the Velvet Room, like Theodore, who she asks to buy her 100 colas.


She also shows concern to her sister Elizabeth by asking if she’s sure she doesn’t want to return.


Margaret then busts out her different Personas (all good-looking ones, too) and gives her opponents a run for their money. If that weren’t enough, she also calls out Helel, who looks like he was about to use his signature Morning Star move, as her Instant Kill.



Moving along, the above video is a short tutorial on the movements and other basics of help. It probably won’t be of help if you’ve ever played any other fighters, but if not, you can get a good idea on how most of them work from here.



Rise makes an appearance in this one, where she teaches how to do basic attacks, combos, counters, Bursts, All Out Attacks, SP skills, and more.



The third video features Fuuka, who teaches some of the new systems in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, starting with the S Hold System, which is a special attack that can be used by holding down the A button to charge the S Hold meter.


Depending on how long you hold down the A button, you’ll get different attacks. This feature is there to help out players who aren’t that great at doing input commands, which can be a little intimidating for beginners.


She then gives us a look at the normal and Shadow type characters, where we get a demonstration of Shadow Yu using his Shadow Rampage mode, which allows him to attack with unlimited SP for a short period of time.



Finally, Mitsuru is here to give us a lesson on some of the more advances techniques, such as proper recovery, different ways to block, quick escapes, mini-jumps, bad statuses, skill boosts, and other features that were in Persona 4 Arena.


Persona 4 Arena Ultimax will be released in North America on September 30, 2014 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

        Sorry are you listing them in terms of who is the lamest? Marie should be in front

    • God

      Do i need to remind you of the Elizabeth fight on P3? She is the superior Velvet Room resident, and eventually, she is gonna bring back the superior Velvet Room guest.

      • KanjiLikesBoys

        remind me of whatever you’d like so long as you take Elizabeth with you when you’re done

        • God

          And why would i do that? That would make you happy, since i relish on humanity’s suffering, i may take Margaret with me though…

    • DeadLineDance


  • DwillXXII

    Woah she looks beautiful. She always was but still. O.O

    • colorblindnightmare

      The word you are looking for is ultra.

  • thrak

    She is amazing. It is a shame that not many fans are shipping her with protagonist. But there is a option to call her your girlfriend in Golden…You gotta see the look on the faces of Investigation team when I said that she is!

    • r0gamer940

      I put her as official mistress

      • thrak

        They say they like their happy-go-lucky girls, but when they saw that she is mine…That look of envy…Haha, everyone loves someone like Margaret, consciously or not

        • God

          I don’t… she is a one-dimensional character, unless you do the secret boss fight only avaliable in a NG+.

          • thrak

            Do you think I am going to argue?… To me she has a lot more personality than Marie even Marie is more present throughout the story yet right, Margaret is still pretty one-dimensional. It doesn’t make her less cool. And if we are talking about real one note characters here, don’t forget ‘MEATMEATMEATMEATMEATANDMEAT’ lady.

          • God

            Huh? Sir, i never talked about Marie or Chie, i don’t really care fon neither of them, i was only refering to Margaret, since you only talked about her, though you might have to do some research on what one-dimensional means…

          • thrak

            Having different opinion than you is not the same as not understanding what one dimensional means. I perfectly understand what that means.

          • God

            Marie and Chie, as much as i dislike them, have character development and, while the “tsundere poet” and “carnivoire” are a big part of their character, they have many other qualities and some depth, and are in no way one-dimensional.

        • Snorlaxation

          So much Power. So much style! But I’m having trouble remembering when you can call her your girlfriend in Golden? Was it when you see her in the forest?

          • thrak

            Yep, it was there. Margaret has everything for me to like her…Except being male.

  • Lastlight

    Man both Elizabeth and Margaret have my fav personas (Cu Chulainn and Thanatos)

  • I-e-on


    • DeadLineDance

      I know, right? This and Yukari’s are amazing. I love the Arena soundtracks so much.

  • Pdugna

    She actually has a freaking suplex move haha

    • Shippoyasha

      A veritable Izuna Drop no less!

  • 하세요

    My true fandom will always go for Lizzy first, but Margaret is still badass too. The Sabin fan in me approves of the suplex.

  • James Reilly

    Glad to know I’m not court ordered insane for preferring Margaret over Elizabeth.

    • DeadLineDance

      Agreed. People who prefer Elizabeth to Margaret baffle me.

      • 하세요

        Liz is just a fun character. Margaret is that older sister that never lets you have fun because she’s trying to impress house guests.

        • RagingTiger44

          I like Elizabeth. Haven’t gotten around to playing P4G yet so I don’t know what Margaret’s like. But I can attest to Liz being a fun character with a quirky personality. She’s my favorite female in the game.

    • Zeik56

      I think Margaret is pretty boring compared to Elizabeth, but Ultimax might change my mind. Seeing her suplex Elizabeth in that trailer already shot her up several points.

      • raymk

        People say margaret is boring but I think elizabeth is uninteresting somewhat. I like them both though.

        • Zeik56

          I don’t like Liz as much as some people, but she does have a quirky personality that did make her dates in P3 entertaining. Margaret doesn’t do much of anything interesting in P4 and her personality seemed pretty dry.

          They didn’t really give her a chance to be interesting though, so perhaps some actual story focused on her will help.

    • KanjiLikesBoys

      It’s the only logical choice

  • DeadLineDance

    Oh wow. Hassou Tobi, God’s Hand, Morning Star… and an Ultra Suplex Hold.
    The classy babe of the Velvet Room has arrived. DAMN is it going to be hard to pick a main.

  • Dianatos

    I was hoping she’d get The Bonds of Everyone’s Souls as her theme, but this new remix is too pretty and badass for me to complain. Can’t wait to see a full breakdown of her playstyle; she looks very interesting so far.

  • Judging by her Izuna Drop throw, she’s not afraid to get… Physical.

    Perhaps the most badass of the three Velvet siblings.

    • mckun

      She’s the oldest so she gotta step it up.

      Marg>Liz>Theo. Theo is the youngest sla-I mean resident.

  • Snorlaxation

    All of these ladies can ‘teach’ me anytime. And Teddie? To the front of the line…. Rrrowr

    • Can you bear the lessons they will teach you? >:}

      • Tylor Boreas Makimoto

        I doubt anyone could. The outcome would be pretty grizzly.

        • And fur-ocious too?

          • KanjiLikesBoys

            but mostly Beary exciting

          • raymk

            We’re getting Bear-ied in bear puns.

  • Demeanor

    :O Margaret…. NEW. MAIN.
    Dat Ardha God Hand… dat Yoshitsune Hassou Tobi… dat Helel Morning Star…

  • CK Blaze


  • Prinnydoom

    Ah Hassou Tobi. Broken doesn’t do the skill justice. All looking good here and margaret…..jeez. Wonder who would win in a match between her and Elizabeth. Won’t have to wait long to find out now will I?

  • MARGARETTO!!! her japanese pronounciation sounds so nice~

  • WyattEpp

    Hunk-Hunting Sadist Secretary?

    • Charles Parker

      I never noticed all of her personas are bishie men until now.

  • Ren Yuumei

    Dat voice, dat persona’s, dat theme, dat everyrthing, oh my god Margret <3

  • Steven Higgins

    While the Bishonen Personas work for her title, I think it would have been more interesting if she where using the Persona’s she asked Yu to fuse in her S. Link

  • raymk

    Anyone with a suplex gets my vote for I’m GONNA MAIN THEM TIER. Seriously though Margy looks great.

  • raymk

    And Margaret looks hot to, she has all the hot guys as well.

  • Yan Zhao

    Did I just witness Hasso Tobi on Yoshitsune’s attack?

    • Notquitesure?

      Yes I believe you did, it’s going to make her very powerful.

  • Vash bane


    fuuka has long hair now? so basically everyone is older in this game?

    • 하세요

      Fuuka’s had that hair in the first P4A.
