Atlus Inc. this week said it will release Persona 4 Arena to Sony Corp.’s Playstation 3 and Microsoft Corp.’s Xbox 360.
Developed in partnership with Arc System Works, Persona 4 Arena is a 2D fighting title featuring characters from Persona 3 and Persona 4.
“The Persona series has had tremendous success in North America, and Persona 4 in particular opened the series up to wider audiences than ever before,” said Tim Pivnicny, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Atlus.
“Now we’re looking to expand Persona even further by teaming up with a very strong partner, Arc System Works, to move the franchise outside of the RPG genre and develop its potential in new and exciting ways.”
The final title will include anime-style characters with over-the-top special effects and high-definition graphics.
