Earlier today the Net was abuzz with news of Labrys, a new character in Persona 4: The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena who’s voiced by Ayana Taketatsu (Azusa in K-On!!). The information was published in Weekly Famitsu, which technically only goes on sale in Japan tomorrow. But thanks to the power of the Internet, you’re hearing about it one day in advance.
And now that scans from the magazine have also appeared online, you’re seeing it early too. Here’s your first look at the silver-haired heroine and her “steely” charms.
According to the scans, Labrys is the student council president at Yasogami High School (which the Persona 4 characters go to). Not much else is known about her except she speaks Kansai-ben, and wants Kuma to put a stop to his Mayonaka Arena tournament.
We’re not sure if Labrys is an original character exclusive to this game, although Japanese forum-goers have pointed out that she may have made her first appearance in a Persona 3 drama CD. If you’re a fan of the franchise with more information on Labrys you’d like to share, do let us know in the comments below.
