Persona 4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold

Persona 4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold will be available in Japanese arcades sometime this winter. So far, the details known about the game include two new playable characters: Junpei Iori, who will wield his bat, and Yukari Takeba. Along with those two playable characters, there is someone named Sho Minazuki, a mysterious new character exclusive to the game.

Other additions:

  • Shadow-type characters who allow you to not only fill the SP Gauge, but keep it full
  • A new feature called the S-Hold Gauge that charges your player’s special attacks
  • Barrage Combos that will deplete your SP Gauge
  • A new tournament called the P1 Climax that pits the Investigation Team against Shadow Walkers
  • Many of the staff from Persona 4 Arena are said to be working on this game.
