Quite an update for the Persona 4 website this week even though some of it is re-used material. Information about the new pre-order goodies have been added to the shopping guide and the fansite listing continues to grow.
Rise Kujikawa's profile has now been added to the Character section and it's pretty much the same as Famitsu's coverage word for word only shorter.
In her very first video clip "The Declaration to Quit", Rise declares to the class during their break that she is withdrawing from her career as an idol. This surprises Chie who wonders why she had to make such an announcement during class. The MC asks if Rise really was that popular and Yosuke answers that no matter whether she was in the rural countryside or in the city, she was always popular even though her debut wasn't that long ago. She's just so cute. Chie is disgusted at Yosuke because he sounds like some middle-aged man but, now understands why Rise must have made that announcement. Rise was born in Inaba so she must still have a lot of local fans about.
Besides Rise, there is also a video of Yosuke using his Persona "Jiraiya" and another showing off the Fusion part of the game.
Two more wallpapers have also been added to the Downloads section but, if you've been reading this blog then you'll know they were part of a midnight surprise so they're not really new.
I just noticed this but, is Rise supposed to be wearing something around her neck? The darker shade doesn't look like the shadow from her head. None of the other characters have this abrupt contrast of colours so I'm wondering if the rendering was unfinished. Maybe Shigenori changed his mind half way and wanted to give Rise a lighter complexion.
