posted on by Egan Loo
This week's issue of Enterbrain's Weekly Famitsu magazine is revealing that Akihiko Sanada and Mitsuru Kirijō from the Persona 3 role-playing game will be available as characters in Persona 4: The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena game. The 2D fighting game is set two months after the story of the original Persona 4 role-playing game from Atlus.
Atlus and Arc System Works (Guilty Gear, BlazBlue) are developing Persona 4: Utimate In Mayonaka Arena with characters from both the Persona 3 and Persona 4 video games. Confirmed characters include Persona 4's main character and his persona Izanagi, Chie and her persona Tomoe, Yosuke and his persona Jiraiya, Aigis and her summon Athena, Naoto Shirogane, and Kuma. The game's trailer also revealed the characters Kanji Tatsumi and Yukiko Amagi in September.
Atlus will release the game on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles in Japan next summer, after a spring arcade release.
