More Details Emerge about the “Sequel” to the Spectacular Persona 4: Arena

We’ve just learned that Arc System Works and Atlus’ phenomenal fighter Persona 4: Arena is getting an update so significant that Famitsu is calling it an outright sequel. Location tests for this new version of the game are happening as we speak (since it already is August 16th in Japan) at Hey in Akihabara and at Osaka’s Taito Station.

Twitter is aflame with fans tweeting new details about the game, some of which I’ve compiled below (Arcade, Atlus, Culture)

I wouldn't say "spectacular" but it was good.

How about a new Persona for my consoles?

You wouldn't but I certainly would.

And I think Atlus has something Persona related up their sleeves. I expect something to be said at Gamescom and if not certainly at TGS.

I just beat P4G. It was the first Persona game I've ever played and it's definitely one of my favorite games of all time now. I would love a P5

Who cares what you would say? Why the hell even comment?

I'm looking forward to it. ASW has turned the small spark that was my like of fighting games(Rival Schools was pretty much it) into a blazing inferno of love, thanks to BlazBlue and P4A. More from either franchise would be awesome, in my book.

Whoa there cowboy, time to take those pills Hicken.

I comment because I care. I'm glad that your little spark for fighting games has been ignited. P4:A was a good game for its first outing.

the game died really fast both online and on tournaments. And yeah, as a fighting game it was nothing special beside the fact that it was based on the Persona 4 universe.

You must be playing on the Xbox, everybody knows you need to be playing on the play station for true competition for fighters.

It's not a sequel, it's just an updated Persona 4 Arena. Apparently that's a new fad with fighting games where they release it and then a few months later add 2 more characters and release it again.

At least they waited almost a year with this one. If they add more story elements that connect it to Persona 5 then I will be all over it.

Famitsu used the word "sequel", which is why it's beetween airquotes.
gamerben  +   834d ago
You can't "airquote" without fingers. Those are just regular ol' quotes :P

Your comment is still valid. I'm just bein' picky.

Enhanced versions of relatively recent releases... Something Atlus and Arc Systems have in common. :P

It's hardly a new thing for fighting games, though. Most big franchises of the genre coming out of Japan have been doing this for ages. Street Fighter is the most well-known expample.

If you don't like those policies, don't buy the products. If enough people think that way it will end. Or just wait a bit to buy the enchanced version.

My hype for this game is shooting back up again. I seriously thought ArcSys was done with this game then they surprise me with this. Them sly dogs.
