Things just keep getting more and more interesting when it comes to the Persona 4 Arena Ultimax roster. Fresh off of interviews stating that they have more post launch DLC to be revealed, and the unveiling of Marie earlier this week, it appears Atlus and Arc System Works are far from done with trying to squeeze your wallets dry with this latest possibly-accidental reveal.
While we’ve known what the game’s box art will look like for a little while now, a very cool collage of every playable character with Yu Narukami pulling his best Kazuchika Okada pose front and center, Atlus has seemingly been tweaking it a bit behind the scenes. At a recent showing of the game in Japan, staff members handed out clear files with this tweaked artwork on em, and they show a couple interesting additions to what we had before.
First up is Marie on the right side, which makes sense given her recent reveal. But then you look on the left side, just to the side of Yosuke and Kanji, and you’ll see a Velvet Room attendant that is very much not Elizabeth, but her sister from Persona 4, Margaret. Margaret has never been playable before, and simply serves as the select screen narrator in the first game, so why would they sneak her in there unless they’re dropping hints here?
While this doesn’t confirm anything and no one from Atlus or ArcSys have spoken about this yet, this definitely implies Margaret will be joining the roster at some point, and while she’s not exactly my first pick for who I’d like to see added, I’m still damn excited that they’re cranking out characters like this.
We’ll keep you posted on any updates as they become available.
