Persona 4 ARENA takes characters from the cult Shin Megami Tensai: Persona RPG series and puts them into a 2D fighter from BlazBlue and Guilty Gear developer, Arc System Works.
The game takes place two months after the PS2 RPG Shin Megami Tensai: Persona 4 and follows the fighting tournament in the TV world dimension called the P-1 Grand Prix. Players can choose characters from the series and use their Persona – summoned alter egos – to battle one another.
Keeping pace with more modern fighters offering fast, combo-centric combat with plenty of movement options. There’s a simplistic control option too, for those who need the extra help. The online servers for multiplayer also allow players to battle against users from all over the world.
It’s certainly a title created for fans of the Shin Megami Sensai: Persona series but the exciting combat and quirky story add something special amongst a sea of 3D fighters.
When Persona 4 Arena was released in Japan it became one of the fastest selling fighting games with 90 per cent of its stock sold in its debut week. Which means it shifted just under 140,000 units that week.
