Persona 4 Arena Ultimax Out In Europe On November 21

By   /   Oct 22, 2014

Europe has been patiently awaiting Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, now that the game launched in North America last month. Now, publisher Sega has announced that the game from Atlus will make it overseas on November 21, 2014.

Unlike the other Persona games that sound familiar from their Shin Megami Tensei franchise, this particular spinoff switches roleplaying game (RPG) for a fighting title. It does, however, contain the same characters from Persona 3 and 4 as its playable roster.

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is a sequel to the already released Persona 4 Arena from last year or 2012 in North America. In the latest iteration, eight new characters will join the fight: Yukari Takeba, Ken Amada and Koromaru, Junpei Iori, Rise Kujikawa, Tohru Adachi, Marie, Margaret and Sho Minazuki.

Combat is akin to plenty of similar 2D titles, with fast anime animations racking up hit combos and comic-style cutouts periodically cutting into the screen. Since this is a Persona game, fighters will be able to call forth special attacks through these powerful assist characters.

There’s a campaign for both the Persona 3 and Persona 4 characters, which includes a lot of conversation points, as per the series’ model. Additionally, a survival mode can also be chosen.

Originally, Persona 4 Arena caused an uproar when it decided to implement a region lock, which was the first international title to do so on Playstation 3. Luckily, the sequel doesn’t stoop to that level.

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax will release for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. The series also seems to have a knack to launch titles late into a console’s generation.
