Akihiko and Mitsuru step into Mayonaka Arena

After Aegis’ inclusion everyone began to speculate what other guest characters from Persona 3 were joining the fight against the myriad of Persona 4 characters in Persona 4: The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena. Speculate no more! Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 veterans Akihiko Sanada and Mitsuru Kirijo are stepping into the ring of Arc System Works’ new fighter. The addition of a boxer and fencer adds some nice variety to Mayonaka Arena‘s already crazy cast, both of them even decide to bring sexy, extravagant outfits to the fight. Akihiko goes shirtless, aside from a stunning cape, like a true pugilist while Mitsuru prefers a tight leather outfit with a fur coat.

Mitsuru and Akihiko aren’t my favorite Persona 3 characters, I’d almost say I that they are two of my least favorites, but they fit in. Aside from Aegis they’re the most experienced fighters of the Persona 3 cast so they seem like natural choices for a fighting game. We can only wonder who else will participate in Teddie’s unbearable brawl.

    Without Junpei and bare chested Jesus as a mid-boss this game is a pale shadow of what it could be.

      Junpei was one of my favorite Persona 3 characters, I really wanna see how he’s aged. He isn’t the most unique fighter style wise though, so I won’t get my hopes up.

      Oh, we need some sort of villain as well! I doubt we’ll get one, but I will continue to hope (for Adachi)!
