P4A2 - Best Buy description reveals new characters?

From the FGW thread and leading game journalist and industry insider Smedwicks, Best Buy has put up a product page for P4A2 or Persona 4 Arena Ultimax if you are so inclined. The interesting part is this:

Select one of six new characters — including Persona 3 favorites Yukari Takeba, Junpei Iori and Ken Amada, Persona 4 Arena NPC Rise Kujikawa and Sho Minazuki and his Persona-wielding doppelganger

Obviously there is already a mistake in the description, listing Ken as a Persona 3 favourite, so take it all with a grain of salt. But with that error aside, does this mean these characters are really coming in the console version?

I hope this is true! Ken would have changed the most from P3 -> Arena, so he'd be really interesting to see.

At first I was thinking announcers but Rise was already an announcer, so who knows. And Rise can't even fight.
I'm thinking it's a mistake.
I mean the arcade is already out right?
Would be cool if it was true.

Wouldn't be surprised if this is true. Lots of Arc games (and fighting games in general) get new characters for the console versions. Plus I don't think a place like Best Buy is going to just pull that info out of their ass, it was probably on a PR sheet somewhere.

Wouldn't be shocked if Ken and Rise are actually DLC or something though. Arc has been verrrrry DLC crazy lately. *looks at Blazblue: CP's DLC and shudders*

If Ken is the price of playable Rise, then so be it.

But seriously just give me the full cast of both games.

You know that of which I speak, Persona-GAF.

why no Koromaru, I need more than just MvC3 and the Jojo's Bizarre Adventure fighters to satisfy my 2D fighting canine cravings

and why Ken and Rise A.K.A. The Worst Choices They Could Have Possibly Made

Is P4A worth playing for a somewhat casual fighting game fan who loves Persona 4? Is the story mode in that game good?

P4A is the canon sequel to Persona 4, and is actually mainly about the Persona 3 cast. Its 20 hour story mode is average due to fluff and its structure, but I think it is worth seeing for someone who played through Persona 4.

There are mechanics literally tailored to help casuals. Honestly, P4A was one of the first fighting games I've played in a long time, and it definitely helped me get back into the groove.

Never knew Ken got so much hate. I think I would have enjoyed the overarching narrative to Persona 3 a lot more if he did not exist, so I guess I can get behind this.
