The ultimate clash of Persona users takes to the ring as Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is out now for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Steam.
The Midnight Channel is back and more brutal than ever–check out the P-1 CLIMAX Trailer on the official SEGA Asia channel:
The game is available for digital download on Steam, the Playstation Store, and the Nintendo eShop.
The Steam version features a bargain bundle called the Midnight Channel Collection. This includes both Persona 4 Arena Ultimax and Persona 4 Golden. This bundle will be available with a limited-time discount, and fans who already own Persona 4 Golden on Steam will unlock the same discount for Arena when purchasing it.
Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is a sequel to the original Persona 4 Arena with its story taking place only a couple of days after the events of the previous game (the story mode of this first game can also be experienced in Ultimax). Both games serve as a fighting game spin-off to the RPG Perona 4 and canonically take place a few months after the end of that game.
You don’t need to have played either of the previous games to understand this one however the game is full of fanservice for Persona 4, and Persona 3 for long-time players.
The game is developed by Arc System Works of Guilty Gear and Blazblue fame featuring the same sleek anime esque sprites seen in those games.
Key Features include:
- Ultimax Version – Includes all previously released content for the game such as new characters, BGM, and customizable options, including the original story from the first P4 Arena.
- A Deep Roster of Playable Characters – Persona 3 fan-favorites and “Shadow” versions offer a range of fighting styles to choose from
- Dual audio – Choose between Japanese and English VO
Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is available for PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam. The game was originally released for PS3 and Xbox 360 and is still available on those platforms as well.
