The official YouTube channel for Japanese game developer Atlus began streaming a character promotional video for Persona 3's Yukari Takeba for the upcoming PlayStation 3 port of the Persona 4 The Ultimax Ultrasuplex Hold arcade game, the sequel to Persona 4: The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena (Persona 4 Arena outside Japan).

    Yukari: Cut through the evil in this world, Victory! Here we go! Feather Change!
    Yukari: Huh? Did I say something weird?
    Yukari: ...!? I-Isn't this... Escapade!?
    Yukari: There are a lot of different things posted up... It's like a school festival. "The steel... Sister complex gang leader!?" (referring to Yu)
    Yukari: Mitsuru-senpai! Are you OK!? Can you hear my voice all right!?
    Yukari: I have to hurry and save senpai and the others!
    Yukari: Miracle Feather Arrow!
    Narrator: She makes kids seriously cry! The super harsh Pink Sniper! Yukari Takeba!
    Yukari: It's true... The entire town has gone weird... Senpai, isn't this the Dark Hour? ...But bring it on! I'm protecting the galaxy's peace once a week anyway!
    Yukari: I won't forgive you for making fun of my dad in Mitsuru-senpai's form!
    Yukari: Yeah... This get-up really does stand out...
    Shadow Yukari: Hahaha... I'll teach you who's really on the side of justice.

  • Yukari Takeba
  • Voice: Megumi Toyoguchi
  • Main Weapon: Bow & Arrow
  • Type: Shooting Type
  • Persona: Isis
Possible to shoot arrows in various directions. Her Persona Isis uses wind to attack. When Yukari's arrows are hit into the heart of the tempest, her arrows will fly toward the enemy!

Yukari fought together with Mitsuru Kirijo, Akihiko Sanada and friends as one of the members of SEES in order to save the world in Persona 3 two years prior to the events of Persona 4 The Ultimax Ultrasuplex Hold. She graduated from Gekkōkan Academy and moved on to college, where she is currently working as a female model. However, it is learned that Yukari has skills with the bow, and she is given the role of Pink in the famous sentai program, “Phoenix Ranger Featherman Victory.” One day, a helicopter not used in the filming suddenly appears in the sky. Out of the helicopter appeared Mitsuru Kirijo's maid Kikuno (a character played by Masumi Asano in the Persona 3 drama CDs). When Yukari learned of Mitsuru's emergency, she flew immediately to Inaba without even taking time to change... Something she would regret later!

The PlayStation 3 port of the arcade game will ship in Japan on August 28. First copies will come with a code to download extra scenario set for the game. Atlus will ship the game in North America this fall under the title Persona 4 Arena Ultimax.

The story takes place only a few days after the events of Persona 4 Arena, when the town of Inaba is clouded in a shroud of red fog in which time is warped and people disappear. Inaba has almost become like the world inside the television. To add to it all, the members of the Persona 4 team find Mitsuru and Akihiko being crucified on the Midnight Channel. In front of the Inaba students appear Yukari and Junpei, members of the Shadow Worker unit who have come to the rural town in order to save their upperclassmen.

Atlus released the first Persona 4: The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena game in Japan last summer on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles, and Atlus USA released the game in North America.
