In the Victorian era, hand-fans were used not only to cool oneself but also as a secret way to communicate the language of love. For example, by running one’s fingers through the fan’s ribs, one is trying to say, "I want to talk to you." The enigmatic language of the fan was widely used by both men and women.
I. A fan placed near the heart.
"You have won my love."
II. A closed fan touching the right eye.
"When may I be allowed to see you?"
III. A closed fan moved threateningly.
"Do not act so impudently!"
IV. A half-opened fan pressed to the lips.
"You may kiss me."
V. Covering the left ear with an open fan.
"Do not betray my secret."
VI. Hiding the eyes behind an open fan.
"I love you."
VII. Shutting a fully open fan slowly.
"I promise to marry you."
VIII. Fanning oneself slowly.
"I am married."
IX. Letting one’s fan rest on the right cheek or the left.
"Yes" and "No", interchangeably.
X. Opening and closing the fan several times.
"You are cruel."
XI. Fan in front of the face.
XII. Twirling the fan in the left hand.
"We are being watched."
XIII. Fan held over left ear.
"I wish to be rid of you."
XIV. Carrying an open fan in the left hand.
"Come and talk to me."
XV. Opening a fan wide.
"Wait for me."
XVI. Placing the fan behind the head with finger.

Persona 4 had a lot of unused concepts, such as Kanji Tatsumi as a middle-aged man, Rise Kujikawa as a juvenile delinquent, Teddie having a female human form (though it could be an alternate crossdressing outfit, as Yosuke and the main character had their outfits included with their concept art), and Naoto would remain a boy detective. Also, weird little things like Chie and Yukiko having long and short hair, respectively.
Also, game files were found by intrepid hackers that included character portraits for Junpei, both with and without his hat. It seems he was to make a cameo, but for whatever reason, was Dummied Out. Some Dummied Out dub dialogue seems to have implied a romantic route for Yosuke, despite no such option being available in the original. This has become a huge subject of fan art and fanfiction however.
There’s also evidence that at one point in the story it the killer was going to turn out to be your uncle Dojima but this was apparently so disturbing to testers that it was changed during production.
THE NINE CHOIRS OF HEAVEN. An info-graphic for my editorial class and god am I thankful it’s done. Way too much went into this than what I had time for, but hey… I actually kind of like it?
