And for the last Persona-related news item for the day, Atlus has announced the release date for Persona 4 Arena Ultimax (Persona 4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold in Japan), a sequel to Persona 4 Arena, for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax will improve on the award-winning fighting game formula with battle-altering 1-hit special attacks and new characters, including Yukari Takeba and Junpei Iori from Persona 3 and a brand new character, Sho Minazuki. Not a lot is known about Sho other than his goofy nature and being an unstoppable force in both puns and combat. Two swords, two scars on his face, red hair and red mist in Inaba? Surely it can’t be coincidence that he’s standing in the way of the Investigation Team. And to make matters worse, it seems he can control a Persona…

  • Glad we’re getting this. Looks cool. Title is misleading though. There’s no release DATE just a release WINDOW.

    So hold on. Is this game actually a sequel to Persona 4 Arena? With a completely new story of the same size as P4A? It seemed like an arcade update.

      New story, a few new characters/stages, and tweaks to existing characters.
