Trivia[edit | edit source]

Vincent in Club Escapade.

  • Paulownia Mall is where SEES fights the Hermit Shadow during the Full Moon.
  • The 'Kiri' in 'Kirijo' - the name of the group that built Paulownia Mall - means 'paulownia'.
  • Jack Frost can be seen in Game Panic's Logo.
  • In Persona 3 Portable, the protagonist can talk with Vincent Brooks, the main protagonist of Catherine, in Club Escapade.
  • In Portable, during the September Full Moon mission that takes place in Club Escapade, Shinjiro says that due to issues with the electricity, the manager of Escapade had to cancel "some big event." This is a reference to Persona 4's Rise Kujikawa, who, while on the class trip to Iwatodai, claims that she had a "secret show" planned at Club Escapade two years prior that was cancelled due to a "power outage."
    • As revealed in Persona 4, Naoto confirms that Club Escapade no longer serves alcohol due to an incident between several drunks one year before the events of Persona 4.
  • As revealed in the Hermit Social Link, Isako Toriumi once got extremely drunk and passed out at Paulownia Mall. An older man called her a "drunk slut", and Toriumi told him to "shut the fuck up" in return.
