Atlus Announces Persona 4 Arena for NA

Atlus Announces Persona 4 Arena for NA

Spin-off fighting game Persona 4 Arena (Japanese title Persona 4 The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena) is heading to North America, Atlus revealed last night.

Developed in partnership with genre master Arc System Works, Persona 4 Arena uses gorgeous, hand-drawn, high definition 2D anime-style fighters and colorful, over-the-top special effects to bring to life characters from the acclaimed, highly popular Persona 3 and Persona 4 video games.

Check out this new gallery of screens from the North American version, or view the gallery at the end of the post, which includes screens from the Japanese version of the game.

 

Tim Pivnicny, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Atlus remarked,

“The Persona series has had tremendous success in North America, and Persona 4 in particular opened the series up to wider audiences than ever before. Now we’re looking to expand Persona even further by teaming up with a very strong partner, Arc System Works, to move the franchise¬†outside of the RPG genre and develop its potential in new and exciting ways.”

Although the game was released for arcades and consoles in Japan, in North America it will only be available for 360 and PS3. No final release date is set, but you can expect to battle your favorite characters against each other this summer.
