Persona 4 Ultimax review photo
It's a knockout!
It's still tough to believe a fighting game based on the Persona series exists, let alone is any good, but Persona 4 Arena certainly came as a pleasant surprise. Atlus and Arc System Works are two distinctive studios kno... read feature

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. read

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


Also, Golden Arena Mode revealed
May 29
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. read
