Persona 4 Arena

Persona 4 Arena is a fighting video game co-developed by Atlus and Arc System Works for arcades, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. Based on Atlus' Persona role-playing video game series, Arena serves as a direct sequel to the 2008 title, Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4, additionally featuring characters from its predecessor, Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3. The game was first released in Japanese arcades in March 2012, and later worldwide for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in July and August 2012. A sequel, Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, was released in Japanese arcades in November 2013 and was released for consoles in 2014. Persona 4 Arena was the first game of the series to drop the Shin Megami Tensei label for its North American release, reflecting its status as a spin-off of the main series. Atlus requested Arc System Works' collaboration to make Persona 4 Arena, with Atlus handling the story and Arc System Works handling the gameplay. Persona 4 Arena became one of the fastest selling fighting games in Japan with 90% of its stock sold in its debut week. Reviews for the game were positive, with critics praising the gameplay and graphics employed, with criticism going towards the length of the story mode.
