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.
