Atlus Games and Zen United announced today they will be bringing Personal 4 Arena to the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita and Xbox 360 later this year.
Persona 4 Arena is a fighting game featuring characters from both Atlus’ Persona 4 and its predecessor Persona 3 FES. In addition to the standard fighting game fare – multiple special moves and using gaurds/defensive techniques strategically Arena features a special type of attack using a Burst Gauge system.
Arena marks a bit of a departure for the Persona series whose more modern entries are traditionally an action RPG combined with a relationship simulator. Atlus USA will be publishing Arena on all three consoles later this summer.
