PS3 fighting game will ship on August 28 in Japan, September 30 in N. America

Game Publisher Atlus Japan began streaming character trailers featuring Persona 3's Elizabeth and Persona 4's Kuma (Teddie in the English version) for its upcoming 2D fighting game Persona 4 Arena Ultimax on Thursday.

Elizabeth: Without being hesitant, I shall desperately interrupt!
Elizabeth: I have a premonition for a riot to occur. To erode this world this much... It's quite intriguing.
Elizabeth: Unfortunately, I have a lovely personality that makes me unable to hold back my curiosity toward such things. That power... I would love to take a look at it.
Elizabeth: The "solitude" and "bonds" that will begin now, and a battle between two great powers...
Elizabeth: Elizabeth the secretary can't help but let her heart dance!
Elizabeth: An invader, or in other words, an irregular existence... Here I come. Draw: Persona card.
Narrator: Good sir, she'll use Megidolaon on any visitor! The most twisted (pun on "strongest") elevator girl in history. Elizabeth!
Elizabeth: It appears that I must get rid of these pseudo-Persona-users that are hanging around. All I must do is judge them with my eyes. I shall go higher as an even stronger being!
Elizabeth: Now then, a song of victory...

Kuma: Wait just a second! Stop fighting for the sake of Kuma! Achoo!
Kuma: Circumstances? I can feel those fresh circumstances right around here!
Kuma: Good morning! Oh, am I all alone with Ai-chan? Could this be a premonition of love? All right!
Kuma: Oh, execution! Kuma has an experience with one or two of those!
Kuma: Huh? You're didn't tell Mari-chan that sensei is coming?
Kuma: Leave this to Kuma! Kuma can use a Persona, and I'm the best of the bears at escorting the beautiful ladies! It's hard being popular!
Kuma: His empty space eats up everything! The lustful beast of libido! Kuma!
Kuma: The world where everyone I love so much is always sparkling! That's why I want to protect that sparkling, and help everyone! Let's run straight ahead to that tower! Time to fly!
Kuma: Now, a kiss of reuniting~
Shadow Kuma: I'll show you the dark fate of fools...

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, the PlayStation 3 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. First copies will come with a code to download an extra scenario set for the game. Atlus announced in June that police detective Tōru Adachi from Persona 4 will appear as playable DLC character.

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.

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.
