Recall the fast ‘n’ furious action of Persona 4 Arena Ultimax

Publisher Atlus and developer Arc System Works have released a short trailer for the upcoming PC port of cult anime fighter Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, which sees the stars of beloved RPGs Persona 3 and Persona 4 gather for a very colorful, very frantic, and very attractive bout of the ol’ fisticuffs.

From Naoto to Aigis, Chie to Junpei, and Mitsuru to Teddy, Persona 4 Arena Ultimax sees our favorite characters from The Velvet Room and beyond battling it out in spectacular 2D fashion, aided and abetted by a variety of special attacks, unique character mechanics, and, of course, persona powers. The return of Ultimax to the modern fighting game circuit will be celebrated by many — although some players are left reeling that ArcSys is only “considering” rollback netcode for the new release.

Stacked with characters and modes, and filled with the lavish artwork and slick jazz sounds that are the Persona trademark, Arena Ultimax is an enjoyable and well-made (if a little complex) fighting game. It will be good to go toe-to-toe with the drama queen fashionistas of the Persona franchise, and here’s hoping that it can build itself a brand new community of both veteran and all-new players.

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax launches March 17 on PS4, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
