The official YouTube channel for Japanese game developer Atlus began streaming a character promotional video for Persona 4's Tohru Adachi 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). Adachi will be available in the game's roster as DLC.

    Yū: The timing of the incident...
    Yōsuke: If the culprit knows about you...
    Chie: ...You...!
    Yōsuke: You're kidding, right!?
    Adachi: Hey! Long time no see, you guys!
    Yū: ...Adachi...!
    Adachi: Huh? Ahahaha, well, actually, I had intended to be good from now on...
    Adachi: Huh? Oh, you're here, too. I'm fake? Ah, OK, sure, I'm fake, I'm fake.
    Adachi: This town's future? Has nothing to do with me. I'll do as I please. I have rules too, you know.
    Narrator: "The world is still trash!" The completely self-centered cabbage detective: Tohru Adachi!
    Adachi: Oh come on, is your savior really just this? That's too bad. Looks like he's just a kid who's wet behind the ears.
    Adachi: Haha... Idiot... Come on. Bring it.
    Adachi: I'll break in you kids as many times as it takes...

[Note: Highlight the text below for the character description, which contains spoilers for the end of Persona 4 and its port]
A former detective who was deeply involved in the murders that occurred in YASO Inaba. He appears once again in front Yasogami High School, which has become a tower to the culprit of the most recent incidents. His confident attitude still exists as he stands in front of the protagonist, who is shocked. He appears to have had a prior meeting to the red-haired boy who says he's the culprit...

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.
