According to a leaked Famitsu spread, Persona 3 characters Mitsuru and Akihiko will be joining the cast of Persona 4: The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena. Akihiko looks to be pleasing the fangirls as he arrives shirtless, while Mitsuru appears to be wearing some kind of tight leather suit. Fanservice for all! Huzzah!
While this isn't entirely surprising news, part of me was nervous that Aegis would be the only Persona 3 character to make it over. Consider me pleasantly relieved. It's too early (and the scan too small) to tell what kind of fighting styles they'll have, but it's easy to make a few educated guesses.
It'll probably be a few days before a clean scan pops up and Famitsu posts the images to their site. In the meantime though, take a gander at the low quality image below to sate your appetite for more Persona.
I'm personally hoping for some Persona 2 love, but that might be a little far fetched. What characters would you like to see added to the roster?
