Persona 4 Ultimax won't be region locked for North and South America

After raising some ire region locking Persona 4 Arena (one of the only PS3 games that is region locked), Atlus decided that its follow up, set to release in the North and South America this fall, "will not be region locked for the Americas."  So this time around you European folk might consider importing instead of waiting on Atlus for a year to release it in Europe.

When's Marvel? Just consult the EVO 2014 schedule

EVO 2014 is this weekend. We had a lovely time covering it last year, though it doesn't look like we'll have a get together watch party this time around. That's okay. There are three different streams to watch home and a...

I'm jealous of Persona 4 Ultimax's Japanese-only Premium Edition

Here's a look at the slip cover that will adorn the Persona 4 Ultimax Premium Newcomer Package, which comes with the story from the first game so you don't have to go out of your way to catch up (it will also be sold sep...

Persona 4 Ultimax: Naoto & Kanji's Japanese voices are throwing me off

The best Persona 4 character already got trailered, but I guess Atlus still needs to finish up. This week it's Kanji and Naoto, both with voice actors that are throwing me for a loop. It feels like it should've happened...

Persona 4 Ultimax's Adachi will be free for first week

Okay, clever use of color presets, Atlus.  Adachi will be free to download for the first week of Person 4 Arena Ultimax's North and South American release. After that first week, he will revert to paid DLC, so get your free character while you can.

Persona 4's best character gets her Ultimax trailer

When I came back to Persona 4 Arena with the intent of finally learning how to play a fighting game after abandoning it, I switched from Mitsuru to Chie. Because they are the best Persona characters. I lasted a bit longer, but my advancement was thwarted by Shadow Labrys (trailered below) and stupid fingers.

This Persona 4 the Golden Animation trailer will make your happy

Atlus teases new Etrian Odyssey with a tree, not a broccoli

I sort of feel more like going on an Eritrean odyssey right now, but I'm settling for an Ethiopian jazz bar later in the week. Anyway, I scaled 10,000 meters of tree on this Atlus teaser site so you don't have to. Really, it's not that fun. The result was this Etrian Odyssey looking "Coming Soon" page. Whole tree background attached.

Rollers of the Realm: A nice surprise photo
Rollers of the Realm: A nice surprise
by Dale North

I tried my hardest to imagine what the combination of pinball and RPG would look and play like before meeting with Atlus at E3, but I kept coming to mental roadblocks so I decided to wait and be surprised when I got to see it. When I finally did see and play this unimaginable creation from indie debs Phantom Compass, I certainly was surprised.

First, I was surprised at how off-base I was with my imagined concepts. More importantly, I was surprised at how well it all came together in upcoming game Rollers of the Realm.

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax first hands-on at E3 2014 photo
Persona 4 Arena Ultimax first hands-on at E3 2014
by Dale North

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 write about the version I played -- double tease. But getting my hands on Persona 4 Arena Ultimax for the first time made me feel a bit better about the situation. 

 I’m by no means a skilled fighting game player, but I am a massive Persona series fan, and even as a novice I really enjoyed its predecessor. This new version adds some of the Persona 3 cast, a new character, and shadow versions of all characters to the mix, not to mention new story lines (my favorite part) to experience.

Want to punch Persona 4's Teddie in the face? Here's how you can do just that

Atlus always seems to pack in awesome bonus items with its games. Shin Megami Tensei IV had that huge strategy guide, Dragon's Crown an art book, and virtually everything else Atlus publishes at least gets a complimentary sou...
