There's stuff that will look "busted" to people like this or this, but those things actually aren't and the situation in arcades wasn't ever dire outside of Yu Narukami and Elizabeth on extreme ends of the spectrum. They put out the major 1.10 patch a while back which changed some things, so it's a bit hard to gauge where things are right now, but things have always been relatively balanced.

Also, since this seems like it's going to be the thread, the official website was updated with a bunch of stuff. Episode P3's image shows off the Theodore scene:

things like this. seem actually kind of broken as it is seemingly based on a glitch or some kind of failure of scaling.

these kind of things formed my initial impression of p4u2 but glad to hear it got patched and that the balance is alright.

Oh, actual glitches? Those have been mostly stamped out a long time ago (notice the date on that video). That one was when the game was still 1.00.

The image of the guy wearing Elizabeth's attire makes me wonder if we're getting FeMC.

The 1.10 update in arcades hardly changed anything.

Sanada Akihiko is slightly better, but Narukami Yu and Elizabeth are still on extreme ends of the spectrum.

The art doesn't reflect it, I don't care what "age" they say he is. Most characters look way older than they really are.

Reminds me of Sunny from MGR, she's hot as hell and the game say she's 14, haha.
They never said that. It's been four years between MGS4 and MGR, so she's 11.

Huh, Ken doesn't seem to play like Carl in BB like I thought. Interesting. Wonder how Koromaru will play into his role.

Golden Arena looks worthwhile for singleplayer people. Also interesting they're turning it into nearly a full-blown Persona RPG-esque mode.

Are they really not going to include Dojima? Really? REALLY?

I just want to hear him say "I AM THE LAW" once. Just once.

Ok, Ken looks pretty fun, serve me some crow.

I really wish they would include Dojima and Funky Student though, I don't really expect them to make Funky Student playable, but Dojima should be a given.

Atlus pls

Atlus shot that down back in the original P4A when Arc proposed his inclusion.

They should have made this game like Persona Q some crazy non-canon offshoot and then they could have included any character they wanted to.

Even Persona Q is limited by canon. You don't see the female P3 protagonist there.
