Marie Joins Persona 4 U2 Game's Roster as DLC

posted on by Karen Ressler
PS3/Xbox 360 game to ship in Japan on August 28, N. America on September 30

Famitsu Magazine announced this Thursday that Persona 4 Golden's Marie will be available as a downloadable playable character for Persona 4 The Ultimax Ultrasuplex Hold. She will be available for purchase in the PlayStation store in Japan.

[Note: the details below may contain spoilers for the Persona 4 Golden PlayStation Vita game and its anime adaptation.]

Marie will be able to use the Persona Kaguya and also fight with mysterious items in her bag. For her special move, "Musubi no Kaminari," Marie dons her white outfit and manipulates fog and lighting.

The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 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 region-free on September 30 under the title Persona 4 Arena Ultimax. Tōru Adachi will also be available as a DLC character.

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 in 2012 on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles, and Atlus USA released the game in North America.
