Game Trivia

  • All of the fighters' demeaning titles reference aspects of their respective games. For example, Yosuke's "Captain Ressentiment" is taken directly from one of Mr. Morooka's lectures in Persona 4, and accurately describes Yosuke's primary character flaw.

  • Persona 4 Arena is one of the few games on PS3 to be region-locked. Atlus apparently did this to avoid a potential "reverse importation" fiasco, i.e. where Japanese consumers would opt for cheaper American copies instead of those in their home country. Naturally, there was still fan backlash over concerns Atlus would be region-locking future games. A press release later assuaged those concerns, saying "this is not the beginning of a new Atlus policy, nor do we view it as a precedent or a slippery slope," while reminding players that "importing, as great as it is for gamers who otherwise can't get access to a title, can also cannibalize the performance of a title in one territory to the benefit of another."

  • Labrys's namesake comes from a symmetric double-headed axe from Ancient Greece. Its symbolism was widespread in Greek culture, and it was depicted as a weapon used to slay bulls. It's no coincidence that Shadow Labrys's persona is Asterius, a mythological bull.
