Persona 4 Arena Ultimax Sees Marie Join As DLC

Atlus

Marie will be stepping out of the Velvet Room and into the heat of battle as DLC for Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, Atlus announced in this week’s Famitsu magazine.

Marie, working with the subtitle “Hollow Forest Tsundere Poet,” will carry the same bag she carried in Persona 4 Golden, and she’ll freely use the contents of it to create diversions and play a mean keepaway game in battle. Her Persona, Kaguya, will aid her plan of attack, though we’re not sure how just yet.

Also announced in Famitsu (translated by Gematsu) is an Online Lobby mode, where players will control a personal avatar to gather with other avatars in iconic Persona locations like the school and Junes. Players can interact with other avatars by chatting or challenging one another to battle.

We really like the online lobby idea, but if that’s going to happen it better include some kind of watch feature where we can watch battles as they’re happening a la Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3. It’s much better watching your friends duke it out than it is staring at a menu screen waiting for your turn. Also, Marie’s subtitle is cool, but nothing will ever beat Teddie’s “The Beast In Heat.” That bear is something else.

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax launches on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on Sept. 30.
