Yukari Takeba, one of the new characters in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, has just gotten her own trailer. For some reason, Yukari has kind of become some sort of super sentai warrior with a laser bow. That… makes sense.
In terms of her actual moves in the game , she has a variety of projectiles at her disposal. A spiral arrow, a tri arrow, a number of straight arrows, and more allow her to control spae from a variety of locations. What’s very notable about her projectiles is that they don’t necessarily knock the opponent away from her. This makes her less effective as a straight up keep away zoner, and more effective at comboing the opponent from long distances away. She is certainly an interesting archetype, one we rarely see in fighting games, and it will be cool to try her out when Persona 4 Arena Ultimax comes out this fall for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
