Persona 4 Ultimax | Marie

A recent Famitsu announcement may have some fans of the upcoming fighting title Persona 4 Ultimax up in arms. It seems that Marie, the brand-new character first introduced in the Vita-exclusive title Persona 4 Golden, will be making her fighting game debut in the sequel to Persona 4 Arena. The catch? She will not be shipping with the game on September 30, and will instead only be available as paid DLC. While no price points have been announced, having to pay for an extra character separately for a new game is sure to stir up some anger.

Aside from these rather meager details, little is known about Marie’s involvement in P4U. No screenshots have been released, and how she would play is still a mystery. Personally, I have a hard time imagining what Marie’s fighting style might be, but, hey, if Rise can go toe-to-toe with an opponent, I’m prepared to believe just about anything. Maybe next we’ll be seeing Nanako kicking Big Bro’s butt.

Atlus was already on thin ice after the announcement that P4Us first DLC character, police detective Tohru Adachi, would only be free for a limited time, and will eventually be relegated to paid status, as well. Does this new announcement about Marie having you fuming, or will the love of the franchise weather the outrage?


Persona 4 Ultimax is available for pre-order on Amazon:

About Tyler Lubben

Tyler is a lifelong gamer, getting his start on the Intellivision when he was three years old. After receiving his English degree, he discovered all those jokes about getting a job in his field were true. As Head Editor with oprainfall, Tyler is able to bridge his two passions; playing and talking about video games at any given opportunity, and being a total grammar nazi the rest of the time.

  • Pedro Rosas

    She has more fighting skills than Rise and Adachi, plus, if you beat P4G True Ending, when they are showing the characters’ after the epilogue, Marie has what it seems a Persona which was more than a hint of she being back eventually.

    About we having to pay for it, its nothing new, this is Arc Sys we are talking about and she’ll be $7.99 like always, but people will still buy it (myself included) instead of complain.

  • Far as I’ve heard, she has a range of short and long-range attacks using items from her bag, and she uses Kaguya, the Ultimate Aeon Persona from Golden, as her Persona.

    To be honest, I’m pretty hyped.

  • Violetwisp

    I don’t have as much of a problem with story add-on DLC, plus, it’s Marie, so all is forgiven.

  • Thanatos2k

    This is pretty sad, considering Ultimax itself is basically paid DLC.
