Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is a Persona fan’s wet dream come true. Featuring all the amazing characters from Persona 3 and Persona 4 (including fan favorites such as the inimitable Tohru Adachi), locations, and music, it’s pretty much like a Super Smash Bros. for Persona 3 and Persona 4 fans. That it also includes a story mode that’s pretty damn good (and canonical- it concludes the story of Persona 3, 4, and Arena) is just icing on the cake.
The game, which is due out in Japan this week, and in North America on September 30, just had its opening movie released to the public, albeit it is in Japanese. Still, to someone who is a Persona fan- I am a Persona fan- this is some pretty hypeworthy stuff.
Persona 4 Arena Ultimax launches next month in North America on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. No release date for Europe has been announced yet. Stay tuned to GamingBolt for more coverage, including our review.
