The European release of Arc System Works and Atlus’ collaborative fighting game Persona 4 Arena has been mired in delays and uncertainty following its release in Japan and the US last July and August respectively. Thankfully the game’s European publishers PQube and Zen United have finally announced a firm release date and detailed the exclusive bonuses which fans who pre-order Persona 4 Arena can look forward to.
The game will be out for PS3 and Xbox 360 on May 10th in European territories and May 24th in South Africa. Local distributor Apex Interactive will be ensuring that the game is made available at various SA retailers.
Customers who pre-order Persona 4 Arena will receive an exclusive Limited Edition bonus content pack (pictured above) which includes the Official Arranged Soundtrack with exclusive artwork, along with the Digital Fan Pack.
In case you need reminding, here’s a breakdown of some of Persona 4 Arena’s noteworthy features:
13 playable characters, each with their own individual story campaign
A story mode comparable to the JRPG series with over 30+ hours of story gameplay ‒ which continues the events from where the PS Vita Best seller, Persona 4 Golden, left off
Innovative fighting system, where players battle with both their chosen character and their Persona simultaneously
Exceptional suite of tutorials and challenges, as well as an innovative and easy to use combo system ‒ making Persona 4 Arena one of the most approachable fighters of this generation
