Atlus has confirmed that Persona 4 Arena – formally known as Persona 4: The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena – is heading to PS3 in North America this August.

The title – developed in collaboration with Blazblue developer Arc System Works – promises to take the popular Persona universe and transform it into “one of the most unique [and] visually stunning fighting games you’ve ever laid your eyes on”.

The game will feature ten beloved characters from the Persona series, including: Chie Satonaka, Aigis, Mitsuru Kirijo, and Teddie.

Atlus has also said that it’s looking to “retain the full English voice cast from Persona 3 and 4” for the PS3 version’s Story mode.

Sadly, there are no plans for a PS Vita version just yet. Cue collective sobbing.

This game is my most highly-anticipated game of the year. A fighting game developed by my personal favorite fighting game developer set in my favorite video game universe? It's like a match made in heaven. I just don't know who to main...

So far I've counted 11 characters though. Yu, Yosuke, Chie, Yukiko, Kanji, Teddie, Naoto, Aigis, Mitsuru, Akihiko, and Labrys. Then again Labrys just got leaked yesterday. o__o

It's starting to annoy me how obsessed people are over Vita versions. Portability is great and all, but I'll take what I can get.

Anyways, this is a day one buy for sure. I'm a little disappointed it's not a PSN game like I originally thought it would be, especially since the character count is so low, but the Personas should make up for that if they work the way I think they do. My only real concern is that it's an Arc Sys game...they always suck on their first iteration, and I doubt Atlus wants to release 3 or more revisionings before they're finally worth playing. Of course, the very fact that Atlus is involved reduces my worrying some, since I'm sure Atlus will make sure they get it right the first time.

I like 2D sprite based fighting games. I'm terrible at them, but I like them. I already have my copy pre-ordered, but I hope the story mode is as good as they are making it out to be. Once I jump online I probably won't be winning any matches...

If anyone can make a fighting game with a really good story mode, it would be this group right here.
