I named him Hiro Akechi. I didn't think my real name fit into the area the game takes place, and I had no idea there was a cannon name for him.
Side question, am I suppose to play Arena as well?
Well, Atlus wants your money, so yes, I suppose.
It's not necessary to enjoy P4, and if you aren't much for 2D fighters, I'd actually recommend watching the story scenes. I did, and I had to take breaks (it's a fairly long story for a fighting game, and I had to clean up all my nerdgasms.)
It could be relevant to P5, either way it helps connect each game in the series. --- Official Naga Raja of the SMT IV board. Currently playing: Fire Emblem Heroes of Light and Shadow, Dragon Quest VI DS.
Yu. It was either that or my real name, and the game kinda feels uncomfortable when I'm using my real name in place of the canon one. It's like naming Link something else in a Zelda game.
Next playthough though I'm naming him Dicks Oak --- Not removing this until Dr. Dre's Detox album is out. Start:11/22/08 "you being a sad little social misfit weirdo is a fantasy of mine lol"- thedan11
I used my user name, i bet most people here werent creative and used Yu Narukami.
Or we just felt like using his "real" name so that when the text refers to it, it doesn't seem awkward.
And the whole "manga name is his TRUE name" argument is moot. They are two different universes, two different canons. P4A used "Yu Narukami" so that is his official canon name for the video game universe.
BUT he is nameless here, if it were default then okay but here is just invalid. And i bet most people use it is because of the anime.
I used it because of P4A, the ohidon'tknow.....canon sequel to the game? --- Not removing this until Dr. Dre's Detox album is out. Start:11/22/08 "you being a sad little social misfit weirdo is a fantasy of mine lol"- thedan11
My next playthrough I'm going to name him Keisuke Adachi
And then Reiji Mitsurugi (a cookie to anyone who knows where that name comes from) --- Don't forget to check out my MegaTen themed webcomics at http://www.drunkduck.com/user/Strain42/ (Currently Updating: Persona Won M-F)
