Retrospection: Persona 4 (Story) Chapter 12 : Summer Days & Retrospection: Persona 4 (Story) Chapter 13 : A King's Game
This week is another 2 chapter feature, the first chapter focuses on the last week of Summer Vacation for Akira, (the protagonist). The second chapter's focus on the days leading up to and including the school trip to Persona 3's Tasumi Port Island. The highlight of the school of course is when the P4 gang plays what Yukiko and Rise says is called the "King's Game."
If like me, you've also played Persona 3 prior, you'll know that the whole school trip event in Chapter 13 is a Persona 3 fan love fest. Where to begin? The music that is straight out of Persona 3. They first arrive at Gekkoukan High, the school that the Persona 3 protagonist and investigation team went to school. Chisato a former social link for the protagonist in Persona 3 we've been informed that has succeeded SEES member Mitsuru as the school's student president. Mr. Edogawa the teaching the students in the same old classroom that was in Persona 3. Teddie's roof-top entrance is another direct reference to Takaya another character in P3.
If you have watched part 3 of chapter 13, you will already know its most memorable scene is the King's Game scene. So memorable that specific I decided to do some editing and show you guys all the possible outcomes that Akira can choose since normally you can only decide on one. I think between Yukiko's “Hug” or Rise's laying on Akira's “lap” those two are the most promiscuous outcomes. Chie sitting on Akira's lap just awkward because she was “slobber” or I guess not under the influence would more accurately describe what happened. Akira forced to give Yosuke a piggy-back ride was hilarious but most unfortunate of the outcomes. For your information, at the end I chose for Rise to sit on Akira's lap.
This week I did it guys, I finally unlocked the Hanged Social Link (Naoki Konishi...), after weeks of fearing I missed the opportunity. I still have quite a few of social links to get through, and while I cannot guarantee I will be able to max them all out, I promise to show you viewers as many of the important social link events as I can.
