US PlayStation Store Update for February 12th: Persona 4 Arena, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale DLC

Written by: / / No Comments

This week’s PlayStation Store Update features a wide selection of new games across every PlayStation platform besides the PSP. Atlus and Arc System Works’ 2D fighter Persona 4 Arena is now available digitally, although it’s the first PSN game to be region locked – preventing fans in European territories who are still waiting for the game from playing it.
