Persona 4 Arena Ultimax Will Be Region-Free
posted on by Karen Ressler
Atlus USA announced on Thursday that it will release Persona 4 Arena Ultimax without region locking to North and South America.
The story takes place only a few days after the events of Persona 4 Arena, when the town of Inaba is clouded in a shroud of red fog in which time is warped and people disappear. Inaba has almost become like the world inside the television. To add to it all, the members of the Persona 4 team find Mitsuru and Akihiko being crucified on the Midnight Channel. In front of the Inaba students appear Yukari and Junpei, members of the Shadow Worker unit who have come to the rural town in order to save their upperclassmen.
Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 port of an arcade game, will ship in Japan on August 28 as Persona 4 The Ultimax Ultrasuplex Hold and Atlus will ship the game in North America on September 30. The first edition of the game will include a Teddie bob bag and half a set of Persona 4 tarot cards. (The second half will be available with Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth. Players will be able to download the DLC pack for Tohru Adachi as a playable character for free for the first week.
Atlus released the first Persona 4 Arena (Persona 4 The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena) game for Japan in 2012 on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles, and Atlus USA released the game in North America less than two weeks later.
