Atlus USA ships fighting game in N. America on September 30

Game publisher Atlus USA began streaming character trailers featuring Rise, Yukari, and Junpei on Thursday for its upcoming 2D fighting game Persona 4 Arena Ultimax.

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.

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 USA will ship the game in North America on September 30. Atlus USA notes that the game is not regionlocked.

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 North American version will include the Tōru Adachi DLC code, the first tarot card set (the second set is included with the North American Persona Q release), a Teddie Bop Bag, and more.
