The Persona series of JRPG’s have risen in popularity to such a degree lately that the remake of the 4th game in the series, Persona 4 Golden, is currently sitting high in the list of top games for the PS Vita. The characters populating the game’s world are also more popular than ever, something that has given rise to a fighting game featuring them, Persona 4 Arena.
Persona 4 Arena is now available for download on both Xbox 360 and PS3 in North America costing $29.99, with future territories to be confirmed. A collaboration between ATLUS and Arc System Works, it features hand-drawn, high-definition 2D anime-style fighters and colorful, over-the-top special effects that bring to life a roster of characters from Persona 3 and Persona 4. The home console versions boast a host of additional modes and content not available in the arcade version, including a new Story mode and refinements from the arcade version which is still amazingly popular in Japan.
Do we have any Persona fans out there? I recently reinvested in a Vita so I’m looking forward to picking up the handheld version of Persona 4 when it is finally released in Europe, are any of you guys planning on downloading this?
