Atlus USA began streaming its English launch trailer for Persona 4 Arena Ultimax on Tuesday. The one-minute trailer features gameplay and cutscene footage.

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, the PlayStation 3 port of an arcade game, shipped in Japan on August 28 as Persona 4 The Ultimax Ultrasuplex Hold and Atlus shippped the game in North America on September 30 for PS3 and Xbox 360. First copies came with a code to download an extra scenario set for the game.

Margaret will be available as paid DLC (along with formerly free Marie and Adachi) on October 7 for US$4.99. Other DLC include:

  • Complete P4A Story -- $9.99
  • Glasses Packs -- $1.99 each, or $5.99 full set

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.
