The Hollow Forest Tsundere Poet, Marie, is in Persona 4 Ultimax as DLC. Atlus has now confirmed that, like Adachi, Marie will be freely available to download for the first week post-release.
Following the first week of release, both will revert to paid DLC characters. I wonder if the rumored Margaret is also going to come free under a similar deal at launch (or if she's more than just a rumor).
After raising some ire region locking Persona 4 Arena (one of the only PS3 games that is region locked), Atlus decided that its follow up, set to release in the North and South America this fall, "will not be region locked for the Americas."
So this time around you European folk might consider importing instead of waiting on Atlus for a year to release it in Europe.more

When I came back to Persona 4 Arena with the intent of finally learning how to play a fighting game after abandoning it, I switched from Mitsuru to Chie. Because they are the best Persona characters. I lasted a bit longer, but my advancement was thwarted by Shadow Labrys (trailered below) and stupid fingers. more
I got so excited about Yu's Yul Brynner chest on the Persona 4 Ultimax box art that I almost missed new trailers for Yukiko and Yosuke.
I never noticed this, but Yosuke's persona sort of looks like the frog navi the frog reporter uses in Mega Man Battle Network 2. Yeah, I like those games.more
This is the official box art for the Japanese release of Persona 4 Ultimax. It's pretty great, even with the best characters (Mitsuru and Chie) getting teeny billing.
That Yul Brynner chest pose though.more
