Persona 4 Play in the works

Okay, let’s see if I got this right: So far, Persona 4 will have a PlayStation Vita remake, a monthly magazine, a fighting game (Which I’m REALLY looking forward to), a manga, a social (mobile) game, and an anime which is currently airing. Is this enough for Japan? Nohohoooo, because apparently it’s getting a stage production too! How good IS this game compared to Persona 3? I mean, Persona 3 also got most of that stuff but not a play. I don’t get it.

Titled Persona 4 Visualive, the play is being put on by Marvelous AQL, and will be penned by Shintaro Asonuma. The show will run from March 15-20th of next year at the Sunshine Theater in Ikebukuro, with tickets costing anywhere between 7000 yen ($90.81 US) and 10,000 yen ($129.72 US).

The cast is as follows:

  • Main Protagonist: Toru Baba
  • Yosuke: Takahisa Maeyama
  • Chie: Minami Tsukui
  • Yukiko: Risa Yoshiki
  • Kou Ichijo (basketball captain): Motohiro Ota
  • Daisuke Nagase: Jyoji Satome
  • Dojima: Masahashi Taniguchi
  • Adachi: Masami
  • Teddie: Kappei Yamaguchi (Teddie’s original voice actor)

So far, there haven’t been any actual story details revealed, but there will be some kind of special effects. Each performance, the main character’s name will change too – Marvelous is letting fans submit name suggestions (presumably on the production’s official site).

I’m more exicted for Persona 4: The Ultimate in Maynaka Arena so I can kick Kuma’s ass. Oh yes Kuma, I so want to kick your blue ass Kuma all over Jasperville Kuma.

    your site looks better now.. XD

    and Persona 3 was also good but there’s critics because in P3, to release Persona you’ve to shoot a special gun (evoker) in your head…. so basically, some people want to follow this and actually shoot their head believing it will release their persona

    Wow such nice animation, and cool combo hits. But actually, it reminds me of Marvel vs Capcom especially those supers and assists.


  4. Overlord-G says:

    The reason you see the similarities is because this game is being produced by Arc System Works, the same people who made fighting games like the Guilty Gear and Blazblue series, both of which have very similar fighting styles as the Marvel vs Capcom series.
