Egocentric police dick free with Persona 4 Arena Ultimax

Tuesday, 1st July 2014 23:51 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Atlus emailed fans today with the subject line “egocentric police dick”. Of all the ways this could have gone, “free DLC” was not what I was expecting.


The “egocentric police dick” in question is Tohru Adachi, also described as a “bumbling jester”, who will be available as free character DLC for one week following Persona 4 Arena Ultimax’s launch.

“The cabbage-carrying constable and his Persona, Magatsu-Izanagi join the cast in the P-1 Climax fighting tournament,” Atlus wrote.

This all makes sense to Persona fans; don’t worry.

In a batch of new screenshots, Atlus included an image of one of Adachi’s alternate palette options, which bears a striking similarity to Batman’s Joker. Kind of cool.

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax arrives on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in North America on September 30. After the initial week-long grace period, Adachi will be available as premium DLC.

    @Game Hunter RPG’s. The Persona series is a spin off from the Shin Megami Tensei series. This fighting game and the one before it are based off of Persona 3 and 4 which were PS2 titles and ported to PSP and PSVita respectively. Unfortunately, no RPG Persona game is available on the X360.

    @Game Hunter JRPG’s and fighting games are pretty much the genres that Playstation tends to excel in. You should pick a PS3 up if you’re really interested in the series, since Persona 5 is coming exclusively to it next year. As for the fighting game series, it’s not “based off” as an actual canon sequel to both Persona 3 and Persona 4, which were JRPG’s, both of which are available on the PS3 as downloadable PS2 classics (Persona 2, is also available as a PS1 classic); as well as there being PSP versions of Persona 1, the first half of Persona 2, and Persona 3. There is also an enhanced Vita version of Persona 4.

    But yeah, if you’re just sticking with the 360, you might as well not even bother. The fighting in this title is not all that great (too much auto-combo) and you won’t have any idea what’s going on with the story, anyway, so just skip it if you’re not going to go Sony.
