Dojima!!!!!!!!!

(I don't care if he doesn't have a Persona, they can make it work.)

Arc Sys wanted to have Dojima playable in Arena with Nanako as his "Persona." Atlus' reaction was basically along the lines of, "Why would you suggest that? Are you stupid?"

I'd be fine with him being playable though.

Dojima and Nanako if Atlus wants money, and I KNOW they want money. Minds can change in the pursuit of cash, remember "Oh yeah ghost rider is too flamey, iron fist is too punchy"

I'm actually about to start P4 Arena in the next day or two here, but from what I know of it and having recently finished Persona 3 and 4 wouldn't some seriously crazy shit have to happen in Ultimax for
the Persona 3 protagonist
to be in it? Given how they seem to be serious about it being canon and whatnot doesn't it also makes any P1/P2 characters pretty unlikely as well as they'd have to do a lot of backfill there, especially with the time difference?

I JUST WANT STUBBLE MAN DOJIMA IN IT :(

Nanako, Marie, Theodore, Margaret, Fuuka. Boom.

Shinjiro is also back.



Have her serve oyakodon and gyudon as attacks.


Devil Survivor Cameo. Shoehorn that too.

Thanos acquires the fully powered Infinity Gauntlet in The Avengers: Infinity War, but loses when all the superheroes team up together to stop him.
Shinjiro and P3 MC!

They could easily explain away their presence the same way they did Kliff and Justice in Guilty Gear XX: Accent Core. Both characters died in Guilty Gear, but all of their story scenes were flashbacks.

Atlus PR
This is news why? Its been on the pre order bonus page since E3. Think he was just reciting the copy about our pre order bonus items. Put the tin foil hats away.

I know that, but the possibility is why everyone is excited.

Of course. I guess I'm just referring to atlusprime's "Put the tin foil hats away" line where, if he's talking about people expecting a new character, the stream didn't actually announce future announcements. If he's talking about people being skeptical about the possibility of a new character... welp.
 
That's great we might finally get Kou Ichijo, the character we've reallly been clamoring for!
His persona is Daisuke and his special is polishing balls, cause you know, their on fire
Actually i would really like to see Margaret somehow come in as a playable character

Atlus acknowledging P1and P2? Sega making Shenmue 3 is more likely.

I don't really get this sentiment, which is somewhat prevalent. There were P1 and P2 remakes not very long ago, and even in Ultimax, most characters have color palettes homaging characters from those games. (Not to mention that songs from them are selectable as BGM in Ultimax.) Just because Maya or Elly isn't playable in a P3/P4-centric game doesn't mean Atlus pretends those games don't exist.
 
Put in Shinjiro. Make him a heavy hitting pseudo grappler, since this game needs more than one big grappler type. Given the game's plot, it would not be hard to put him in there as a way for the villains to mess with the P3 crew.

Just the second half of persona 2 amirite?

Dojima!!!!!!!!!

It'd be cool if he got a Persona, but even if he doesn't, there's already precedent for a character without a Persona (Sho-whatever his face is).
