Well that's certainly a fast release window...not that I'm complaining. While I don't have any serious doubt the original VA's will be available, if they are it should mean some very good things for Sentai's dub of the P4 anime Very Happy

Either way I'll be picking this one up.

Not a peep regarding a European release? Oh well, I'll just have to get the American version if it's not too expensive...

well persona four was released four monthes after the original japanese release so i sorta expected this. now we just need the golden announced and i'll be a happy persona fan Razz (and maybe a slim chance at sentai somehow releasing the anime this year). anyway will defenitly pick this up Smile.

Ever since this was announced, I've been waiting for Atlus to say when they'd be bringing it state side. Now all they have to do is announce Persona 5 and I can die a happy man!

Are the controls and fight mechanics based on the Arcs system, most notably used in the BlazBlue titles?

If so, then I suppose picking up BlazBlue Continium Shift EXTEND would warm me up for the game's fighting system. I've been on the fence about impulse buying BB:CSE and reading this announcement is kind of nudging me forward into picking up a copy after work today ^^;.

It seems like most of these types of games from japan only come out in america... Can't tell you why, but I can guess that the producers don't think there are as many potential customers in EU as there are in america maybe?

Everyone just says "Summer" for the release, but Gamestop has it listed for August 7.

Kinda wish they kept the original name, just saying "Arena" isn't very interesting. Maybe they should have called it "Persona 4: The Ultimate Arena?

Nice, Im quite looking forward to how this game plays out. And the sprites look like <3.

Agreed about the dub name though...was expecting something like 'Midnight Arena'. But...as long as we get it, I guess.

Sentai is already shooting to release the anime this year.
