Game Publisher Atlus Japan began streaming a character promotional video featuring Persona 3's Mitsuru Kirijō for its upcoming 2D fighting game Persona 4 Arena Ultimax on Thursday.

Mitsuru: Just what is that young man? I can't believe this is a phenomena occurring in reality...
Mitsuru: It's a cheap provocation, but I'll buy it. Bring it on.
Mitsuru: In the past, the Kirijō Group once had a secret laboratory that conducted experiments on Shadows and studied them. That was the Kirijō Ergonomics Laboratory... The "Ergo Lab," for short.
Mitsuru: It's unknown if that lab and this incident are linked, but there are records that the "Feather of Twilight" was used in that experiment.
Mitsuru: If that's the case, it's quite far away... The world that we aim for.
Mitsuru: ...This time, I made a blunder. However, we have "comrades." The kind of comrades that will support another, even if one falls.
Mitsuru: I will also complete my duty!
Mitsuru: It was a ridiculous fighting tournament, but since I have the chance anyway, let me show you... The power of the Queen of Executions!! Feel it with your body!! Artemisia!!
Narrator: She judges evil on her lonely throne! The superior Queen of Executions! Mitsuru Kirijō!
Mitsuru: This tower... It's around the same size of Tartarus. It's turning the entire town into a labyrinth. The same phenomena as the Dark Hour, huh...
Mitsuru: I won't let a single person get in my way. I shall punish every person who stands in my path. Shadow Worker, deploying!
Mitsuru: I shall fight with my name on the line. That is my resolve.
Shadow Mitsuru: Stare at the floor, in the position you are right now.

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. Tōru Adachi and Marie from Persona 4 will appear as playable DLC characters.

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.
