While many of the characters from Persona 4 in Persona 4 Arena have been profiled – both Kanji and Teddie were mysteriously left out of ATLUS USA’s profile sets. However with the games launch today, they finally compiled the remaining characters into one big release and I have included the profiles for both below.
Unlike Persona 3, Persona 4 generally hands you the initial four characters with different elements meaning that provided you are happy with keeping the Protagonist with Zio spells, you do not have to look much further than Yosuke, Chie and Yukiko as party members. Following that, I never had much of a chance to use him in the game but Kanji Tatsumi is bringing his preferred up close combat (with powerful throws) and his thunderous powerhouse of a Persona Take-Mikazuchi to the brawl.
Kanji is a young man who was once feared as a violent punk – but despite his looks, he is a goodhearted member of the Investigation Team and a skilled knitter.
Teddie is perhaps the biggest mystery of this game, once being a member of the Investigation Team – even going as far as forming a human body inside that once empty-shell of a bear suit, he now seems to be a host of the P-1 Grand Prix. Sure he is an actual being from the TV World… but would he give up his bear jokes and girl-chasing for something like this… or is it even Teddie in the first place?
With his claws and Persona, Kintoki-Douji, he’ll upstage everyone with his crazy antics.
