Persona 4 The Ultimate In Mayonaka Arena is soon to be released in Japanese arcades, with an Xbox 360 / Playstation 3 release pending for 2012. The game is being developed by the Blazblue team, so chances are it won’t suck – Question is, is there a market for another anime fighter? Between this and Skullgirls, one has to wonder if there’s room to squeeze more poverty fighters in there with Melty Blood and Arcana Heart.
Then again, Arc System Works will likely push this game hard. Persona has a huge following, and this game could easily gain significant recognition. At least if it doesn’t end up going the way of Battle Fantasia.
