Adachi, along with Margaret and Marie, was one of the extra characters available for Persona 4 Arena Ultimax. This article tells you how to play as him in the new version of the game.
How to Unlock Adachi in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax
How to unlock Adachi depends on which version of the game you are playing. In the original Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 releases, the only way to unlock Adachi is by purchasing him. He can be bought from either the Playstation Network or Xbox Live Marketplace. There is no other way to unlock him for free.
However, this is different in the new Playstation 4, Switch and PC release. The re-released version of the game already comes with all DLC included at no additional price. This means that you will have access to Adachi from the get go! You do have to unlock his story mode, though.
It’s worth noting that Adachi does not have a Shadow variant.
Unlocking Episode Adachi in Story Mode
To unlock Episode Adachi in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, you simply have to complete Episode P4. Episode P4 is the one that focuses on the Investigation Team of Persona 4. As soon as you complete it, Episode Adachi will become available to play. Episode Adachi is an extra, shorter story mode which details Adachi’s role during the events of Persona 4 Arena Ultimax. Episode Adachi is straightforward and doesn’t really feature alternate paths like Episode P4 and Episode P3 do.
Unlocking Adachi’s Round Calls in the Original Release
In the original PS3 and X360 release of the game, you can unlock Adachi as a round call announcer. To do this, simply beat arcade mode with 19 different characters. Just like Adachi himself, this comes unlocked from the start in the new PS4, PC and Switch releases.
Genshin Impact: Sandglass Dendroculus Puzzle Guide
Get rewarded for clearing this new exploration-based mechanic.
Primal Sandglasses are a new mechanic for exploration that you’ll find in the Ruins of King Deshret. Flipping one will start a timed challenge where you’ll need to flip other Primal Sandglasses. Doing so within the time will grant you a reward.
In this guide we’ll teach you how to beat one of these challenges.
The Sandglass Location
To find the Primal Sandglass that rewards you with a Dendroculus and an Exquisite Chest you’ll want to go west of The Mausoleum of King Deshret.
Get to the red-circled area – there’s a Four-Leaf Sigil around to make the travel faster. You’ll end in an area with one of the squared-floor panels that you can activate by interacting with the book front of it. This will create an updraft that will get you to a Dendroculus waiting on top, plus a Forged Primal Light.
From that position you can look at the second area, the one we encircled in a blue circle in the first image. Take the Forged Primal Light to the panel there to create a Primal Sandglass.
The Sandglass Time Trial Challenge
Once you flip the Primal Sandglass you’ll have29 seconds to flip the other two. It may look simple, but there’s invisible walls that’ll make tricky getting to the others.
First you’ll want to do a straight-line run towards where the red arrow points: the part where you can see stone steps rather than sand.
From here turn to the right and keep going forward until you crash against the invisible wall. Then employ some wall-hugging: move while sticking close to the wall so that at the moment it stops being there, your character will get past it to the other side.
When you ‘see’ the door get past it and turn back in direction to the hourglass. This time the wall will be to the right-side of your character. Make your way to the Sandglass normally, and we’re on to the last one.
From that sandglass you’ll run straight to the second batch of stone-floor.
At that point, turn 90° degrees to the right until you see another invisible wall flare up blue. You’ll turn 90° degrees to your right again. Make sure to wall-hug a little so that you can see where the wall ends.
After you’ve cleared the wall do a full turn around, leaving it to left-side of your body and run in a straight line like you were trying to get the torch close to the last Sandglass. You’ll be clear off the wall in a matter of seconds and you can make a beeline for the last Sandglass. Flip it.
Now just walk forward in the direction of the Four-Leaf Sigil, but don’t use it. If you look down you’ll be able to see the Dendroculus and an Exquisite Chest to its right.
