Persona 4 Arena Ultimax will be heading to Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PC eight years after its initial release.
Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is a fighting game spin-off of Atlus' classic Persona 4. Now, it seems the game is getting a re-release onto some newer consoles. Arena Ultimax takes place immediately after Persona 4 Arena which is set just two months after the events of Persona 4. Dedicated fans might have played this game the first time around, having launched in North America back in 2014 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Atlus announced the re-release on Thursday night during The Game Awards 2021.
The game features all previously released content, such as the Persona 4 Arena story and the game's story mode being split into two separate campaigns for the Persona 3 and Persona 4 casts. Players will also be able to choose between Japanese or English voice-overs.
Players on Steam can currently pre-purchase the game as part of The Midnight Channel Collection bundle, which includes Persona 4 Golden and Persona 4 Arena Ultimax. Of course, what might be on everyone's mind right now is whether we'll see a remaster or port of Persona 4 Golden come to newer consoles. To release Persona 4 Arena Ultimax and not the main game is certainly an interesting move from Atlus.
In other news, rumors of a Persona 3 Portable multiplatform remaster have begun circulating, thanks to some recent leaks. Perhaps, then, there's hope for some ports in the near future.
Persona 4 Arena Ultimax has been confirmed as releasing in March 17, 2022 on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC.
