In an update on the Persona Europe Facebook page, publisher Zen United said the Xbox 360 version of Persona 4 Arena was in submission with Microsoft. “Though dependent on when it passes, of course – I think it’s realistic for me to say we’re looking at a May release.”
Persona 4 Arena is a fighting game based on the Japanese series made by Arc System Works, the developer behind BlazBlue and the Guilty Gear series. The game takes place two months after the events of Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 as well as two years after the Persona 3 FES’s “The Answer” storyline. Like Persona 4, Persona 4 Arena takes place in the fictional, rural Japanese town of Inaba. However, most of the events occur in the TV world, a dimension that reflects people’s feelings. In this game the world takes the form of an Inaba’s Yasogami High School which is divided in multiple areas that serve as arenas.
Persona 4 Arena launched in Japan in July 2012 and in the US the following month.
