Astute followers of pop culture news will know that, over the past couple of weeks, fans have been speculating about Margaret being a playable character in the upcoming ATLUS fighting title ‘Persona 4 Arena Ultimax’. This came just after the announcement of Marie as a playable character which came alongside a slightly altered video game cover image that now depicts both Marie and Margaret who you may know both made their debuts in the latest mainstream ‘Persona’ game ‘Persona 4 (Golden)’.

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax – Trailers Released For Akihiko Sanada and Aigis

ATLUS have done it again! It’s been about a week at this point in time since ATLUS last released screenshots or a gameplay trailer for their upcoming action title ‘Persona 4 Arena Ultimax’ which means that it is time for yet another pair of character spotlight trailers with these two focusing on ‘Persona 3’s’ very own Akihiko Sanada and Aigis. ATLUS never let too much time go by without tossing out more hype-inducing news regarding one of their titles and I think that’s why the world loves them. The brutal boxer Akihiko Sanada and the Anti-Shadow android Aigis are back and ready to brawl in these new trailers for the upcoming game and even though the trailers are entirely in Japanese I think audiences will get the gist of what is going on…these two rock ultimate! ‘Persona 4 Arena Ultimax’ is set for a North American release on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this Autumn/Fall with a European release to follow shortly after that.

Person 4 Arena Ultimax – Teddie and Elizabeth Spotlight Trailers Released

Two new trailers for ‘Persona 4 Arena Ultimax’?! Oh man! I’m about to go BEAR-zerk! ATLUS has today released two new character spotlight trailers for their upcoming fighting game sequel and they just so happen to focus on ‘Persona 3’s’ Elizabeth and ‘Persona 4’s’ Teddie who is also known as Kuma in Japan. Yesterday brought some screenshots of the newly announced character ‘Marie’ in all her fighting game glory but today we’re to focus on these two fan favorite characters, both of which are making a return to the arena. The two videos are short but they show us everything we need: Elizabeth is, once again, accompanied by the Persona Thanatos who you may know actually belongs to the protagonist character of ‘Persona 3’. Fans all over the web have spoken out in protest at the fact that Makoto Yuki isn’t featured as a playable character in the new game but I suppose we all should take solace in the fact that at least Elizabeth is still partnered up with Thanatos. That’s as close as …

Marie Announced As DLC Character For “Persona 4 Arena Ultimax” [UPDATE]

I never expected a roster addition like this…I’m not sure anyone did! It was announced today through Japan’s ‘Famitsu’ magazine that the new addition to the ‘Persona’ series who was introduced to fans through the ‘Persona 4 Golden’ PlayStation Vita title will be made available as a DLC character soon after the release of the upcoming ‘Persona 4 Arena Ultimax’ fighting game.

I know I am! The punky young girl with the mostly-blue outfit will join her new friends in the arena for what is looking to be one hell of a massive ‘Persona’ brawl.

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax To Be Region Free Upon American Release + New Trailer

  I’m all fired up for this news because, believe it or not, I was burned once before by the original ‘Persona 4 Arena’ region-locked system and I’m so excited to see that the American version of the ‘Persona 4 Arena Ultimax’ game will be entirely region-free. Do you know what this means? It means as long as you have an American PlayStation Network account you can download and play the game as soon as it is released no matter where you live in the world. This is brilliant news for European gamers like myself who were unable to get the first game at the same time as our American counterparts . We live in a world where the ‘global village’ is a reality, not just something we learned in school as a part of the English class curriculum. No longer do friends have to be located in the same street to be able to play together, the world’s citizens are all connected and now we can all get up to some hardcore brawlin’ thanks …

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax – Naoto and Kanji Character Spotlight Trailers Released

If you’re anything like me you can never get enough of the ‘Persona’ video game franchise. Lucky for us crazed fans of the series, ATLUS doesn’t leave too much of a gap between general information releases for it’s games so we’ve always got something to scratch our ‘Persona’ itch. With the release of ‘Persona 4 Arena Ultimax’ only just around the corners, players in anticipation of the game are more excited than ever. We want to see more and ATLUS is always happy to oblige. Today they have released two more character-specific trailers for the fighting game and they just so happen to focus on the true ‘beauty and the beast’ team; Naoto Shirogane and Kanji Tatsumi. These two, who you may know from ‘Persona 4’, are back again to lay the smack down in an almost elegant way, at least…that’s how Naoto does it. Kanji, on the other hand, is a little sloppy. The duo are looking absolutely awesome in this new game. With some kick-arse moves and their Persona partners at their sides, …

Adachi Announced as Free DLC For American Versions of Persona 4 Arena Ultimax

Adachi, you son of a gun! Why the heck are you in this game?! Before I move on, I am going to issue a spoiler warning so if you’ve yet to finish ‘Persona 4’ you may have certain things ruined for you because I’m sorry but I ain’t going to hold back! A few weeks ago it was announced that Adachi was added to the new ‘Persona’ fighting game ‘Persona 4 Arena Ultimax’ as a DLC character. At the time this was only announced for Japanese players who are lucky enough to get him for free at the launch of the game. It turns out North America shares the same luck because today ATLUS revealed that they will also be getting the same! Yes, this means North American players will too be getting the Adachi character DLC for free on launch. The only thing we’ve yet to be told is whether or not the rest of the Western world will be getting the same treatment but, at this point in time, I can only assume …

Missed The ‘Persona 4 Arena Ultimax’ Twitch Live Stream? We’ve Got It Right Here!

Last week ATLUS hosted a bit of a ‘mini-event’, as I’m calling it. This event took place on the world wide web, maybe you’ve heard of it. To be more exact; the live-streaming event took place on Twitch who, at this point in time, takes the crown for online video game streaming capabilities. Basically ATLUS used Twitch to show the world just how good their new game, “Persona 4 Arena Ultimax’, really is and damn did they show us! It isn’t like the world ever doubted the new fighting title’s brilliant but, even in saying that, we were still blown away with just how good it looked. There IS one bad thing about live broadcast though; not everyone will be able to watch it. Yes, so some folks missed out on the hour and a half of gameplay awesomeness, but that’s alright because ATLUS went ahead and recorded the whole thing which they then released online.Today. You can now watch the whole thing. For free. Ain’t that something? ATLUS never forgets their fans! What’s even …
