2nd Arena fighting game uniting Persona 3, 4 characters ships in Japan in August, N. America in September

Game Publisher Atlus Japan began streaming an introduction video for the “World Lobby” feature for its upcoming 2D fighting game Persona 4 Arena Ultimax on Wednesday.

In the World Lobby, players can choose their own avatar to represent themselves and battle against other players online. Players can also chat with other participants in the lobby, and use emoticons.

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.
