Arc System Works' latest fighter assaults Japan this week
Aug 26
// Kyle MacGregor
Persona 4 Arena Ultimax strikes Japan later this week, just about a month ahead of the fighting game's September 30 launch date in North America. Until then, why not check out the title's gorgeous opening cinematic? And maybe find something else to do for a few weeks to while away the time.

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax first hands-on at E3 2014

Jun 16 // Dale North
Just as was the case with its predecessor, P4AU is a sight to behold thanks to the 2D masterminds at Arc System Works. If you’re like me and aren’t that great at fighters, you’ll still get a lot of mileage out of this game by seeing your favorite Persona characters animated in such a spectacular way. I love playing with the alternative color schemes, too. Fighting up against what we were calling Ganguro Rise was pretty great. Speaking of, if you haven’t heard, Rise Kujikawa graduates from announcer to playable character in P4AU.  Being a casual player, most of my time with the game was spent playing around with special moves and enjoying their accompanying animations. I got in a few good Yukiko vs. Rise matches. Approaching the game in this way, I didn’t mind dying at all, especially given that I got to see Rise’s Awakened super move, which is actually a rhythm mini-game.  From what I saw, I expect to get the same level of enjoyment from Persona 4 Arena Ultimate as I did its predecessor. I enjoyed playing with all of the characters, trying out their moves, exploring their respective stories, and taking on friends in casual matches. For me, this game is Persona enough to be enjoyable even if it is outside my wheelhouse. Of course, for the well-versed fighting game fan, there’s another level of enjoyment offered here on top of that. I expect that fans of both types will be pleased this fall when Persona 4 Arena Ultimax releases for PS3 and Xbox 360 this fall.

Atlus let me touch Persona Q on the first day of E3 during a private meeting. That was a mistake on their part. The main problem is that I didn’t want to stop. The other problem is that they told me I couldn’t wr...

I woke up at 4 in the morning, got on a plane, got to LA, and went straight to the press room with my luggage (too early for hotel check in) and then we started covering Microsoft's press conference. Watching this adorable Persona Q trailer was a nice breather. Don't forget to breathe.

Yukiko & Yosuke get Persona 4 Ultimax trailers


Brosuke bro-ing out
Jun 06
// Steven Hansen
I got so excited about Yu's Yul Brynner chest on the Persona 4 Ultimax box art that I almost missed new trailers for Yukiko and Yosuke. I never noticed this, but Yosuke's persona sort of looks like the frog navi the frog reporter uses in Mega Man Battle Network 2. Yeah, I like those games.

This is the official box art for the Japanese release of Persona 4 Ultimax. It's pretty great, even with the best characters (Mitsuru and Chie) getting teeny billing. That Yul Brynner chest pose though.

Ew, why is Koromaru stuck with Ken in Persona 4 The Ultimax?


Also, Golden Arena Mode revealed
May 29
// Steven Hansen
Have I ever told you guys how much I disliked Ken in Persona 3? A lot. I dislike him a lot. I didn't realize he was in Ultimax or that poor little Koromaru would be saddled with picking up Ken-kun's slack. We also have a video of the Golden Arena Mode. You pick a social link partner, difficulty, and then do fighting and beef up your stats or learn new combos. Seems fun enough.
