The fighting game developed by Atlus and Arc System Works, which is based in the popular Persona RPG Universe, will be coming to Europe for Xbox360 and PS3 later this year.
A collaborative project between ATLUS and Arc System Works, Persona 4 Arena represents a bold new direction for the series – playing on the unique talents of both developers, to deliver an exciting Persona experience for new and existing fans.
ATLUS and Arc System Works are both undisputed masters of their genre. Persona 4 Arena combines ATLUS’s skill and expertise in storytelling and RPG development with Arc System Works’ stunning hand-drawn, high-definition 2D artwork.
Persona 4 Arena thrusts players back into the sinister Midnight Channel where students are engaged in deadly battles on a mysterious new programme called the ‘P-1 Grand Prix’. Here, popular characters from Persona 3 and Persona 4 collide against a backdrop of spectacular visual effects while exploring the events that follow the critically-acclaimed RPG, Persona 4.
“ATLUS’s Persona series is one of gaming’s best-loved treasures. While Arc System Works’ artistry in the fighting world is second to none” said Director at Zen United, Geraint Evans. “A collaboration between these two, greatly-revered developers is a mouth-watering prospect for both RPG and fighting fans alike”.
Persona Arena will be getting its first European showing on the Gamespot Stage at the MCM Expo in London, on Saturday the 26th of May.
