Packed in the Famitsu issue with the Persona 4 announcement was a DVD containing the first footage of the next installment in the Persona series. Thanks to the good graces of the internet the trailer is already online and it reveals plenty more about the game.

The clip begins with Igor sitting in the Velvet Room with a new assistant, Margaret. The main character moves in with a family and begins his new life in a more rural area of Japan. He is greeted by Chin, the girl in the green jacket, who is another Persona user and runs into Youske who is wrestling with a garbage can. Youske has the mouse-like Persona, Jiraiya, found in the scans.


Once the three characters melt into their TVs on a rainy night they meet a bear who appears to be the same character giving Fuuka-like tips during battle. Speaking of battles the footage all the way at the end shows combat and three unnamed characters. There is a girl with glasses who uses maragi, an older looking guy with shades and a skeleton Persona who casts zionga and character wearing a blue cap. Also in the spirit of a certain dog in Persona 3 the bear fights too.


The vibe I get from the trailer and the scans is more of the same, but I'm not complaining! I'm anticipating a new storyline, misty night murders and 60 hours of dungeons.
