Persona 4 Arena will be region-locked on PS3

0

Thinking about importing Persona 4 Arena for the PS3? Already have? Wait. Or maybe cancel your pre-order. 

An Atlus representative dropped some bad news for importers on their official forums: The PS3 version of Persona 4 Arena will be region-locked.

Sorry for the delayed confirmation, but yes, the PS3 version game will be region-locked. I certainly can't offer details as to why, but there might be an official response at some point.

To reiterate, our version of the game works for the North and South America regions. Also keep in mind that both the NA and JP versions have both English and Japanese text/voice options, making them nearly identical. I'm unsure of what the case will be for the EU version.
So, unless you have a Japanese PS3, an import copy of Persona 4 Arena will do you no good. What's worse is that our European friends are screwed now, as they won't be able to play both the NA or JP versions of the game. Hopefully a localization will come through for them soon.
