Put 'em up
Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu has revealed a new version of Arc System Works' story-fuelled fighting spin-off, Persona 4 Arena. The article also disclosed details about two new fighters: Yukari Takeba and Junpei Iori from Persona 3.
Yukari Takeba is equipped with a pink, angelic-looking bow and specialises in both long-range and jumping attacks, benefiting from her 'Garu' wind skill. Meanwhile, Junpei Iori is armed with a bat and is a much more powerful character, opting for a baseball-style system. According to Famitsu, popular protagonists from the previous game – such as Chie Satonaka, Aigis, Mitsuru Kirijo, and Teddie – will be given some brand new moves and skills to test out in the follow-up, too.
Persona 4 Arena hit the disc drives of European PS3s earlier this year, and garnered a glowing review on Push Square.
