Is it? I've heard that it's a much more complicated fighter compared to say Marvel or SF4.

This game uses only 4 buttons and absolutely no dragon-fist motions! It is far from too complicated.

Seriously? No Dragon-fist motions? How is it suppose to play then? Is it easier than most 2D fighters or is it like Tekken?

They lied to you. The only difficulty in this game is memorization of your and your persona's moves. There aren't any SRK motions, 360's or even Half circle animations.

Really? o_O wow, maybe I'll have to pick it up then. Is there only one character that uses a katana in this game or no?

1 Katana
1 Pair of Kunai
1 Kung Fu
1 Fan
1 Folding Chair
1 Hand Gun
1 Boxer
1 Rapier
1 Giant Axe
1 Robot
1 Stack of Cards

So far.

Honestly, no fighting game is too complicated for a dualshock, it's just whether or not you're comfortable enough with one.

Like how I personally can't get myself use to using something like an arcade stick, even starting a specific fighting game with it and not using anything else for a month, I still can't get the few of one. :x

This game is looking a bit simple compared to some fighters (Not simple-simple, but not that bad-sorta-simple.) possibly because of the original "version" of the game? Maybe they figure if they make it seem too complicated some of the Persona fans (Ones who don't play fighters at least.) won't wanna touch it or something. :<

The only issue I see with using a dual-shock would be some awkward button combinations, as this game uses way more 2-button inputs than most fighters. You should be able to shortcut the most awkward of them though.

Way more 2-button inputs? Care to explain?

There's a lot of stuff like A+C and B+D I believe. (Was it A+C?), which in the case of dualshock is A = square, B = triangle, C = circle, D = X (I think this would be the case? B and C might be reversed actually, don't remember...).

So B+D could be a bit awkward.

Then there's stuff like 2A+C for a little "hop" like jump. Of course there's normal stuff like A+B and C+D, but still.
