Arc System Works Announces New Crossover Fighting Game: Blazblue Cross Tag Battle

Posted on July 17, 2017 by Rae Michelle Richards

The developers responsible for the Guilty Gear and Blazblue series of fighting games has announced their latest project – a colorful crossover between Person 4 Ultimax, Blazblue, Under-Night: In-Birth….. and RWBY! So this tag-team fighting title is not only a “best of” when it comes to characters from some of the more recent non-Capcom Japanese fighters out there, but characters from Rooster Teeth’s popular web series will also jump into the fray as well.

A list of confirmed character so far is scant at best – Hyde Kido from Under-Night (which was developed by Melty Blood devs Ecole Software), Yu Naraukami from SEGA / Atlus’ Person 4, Ragna the Bloodedge from Blazblue and of course Ruby Rose from RWBY.

No word on if the game will be a simultaneous international release or if it will hit Japanese arcades first followed by home consoles later. Arc has been silent on any sort of date or even confirming platforms for their latest brawler.

Check out the trailer below:


Persona 4 Now Available On PlayStation 2 Classics

Posted on April 12, 2014 by Rae Michelle Richards

One of our favorite games here @ BrokenJoysticks is Atlus’ 2008 masterpiece Persona 4, why else would we have given the game a perfect 10.0? If you haven’t played the enhanced Persona 4: Golden on PlayStation Vita and don’t own the PlayStation 2 original then you owe it to yourself to pick up this great RPG on PS3 via PlayStation Classics.

Atlus released the PS2 version of Persona 4 on the PlayStation Network this past week for $9.99. Quite a steal considering the original physical version costs double that and Golden still has a $30.00 price tag at most retailers. So grab your persona of choice and get ready to be sucked into the television, it’s time to relive one of the greatest RPG we’ve played in the last half decade.


Persona 4: Golden | Review

Posted on December 18, 2012 by Kirk Williford


That’s perhaps the easiest and most accurate way to describe Atlus’ remake of one of the best RPGs on the PS2. Persona 4: Golden isn’t your average HD remake, though – not only does it have enough additional story-based content packed into it to make the game feel brand new, but updated visuals, new music, online connectivity and special features like the ability to watch recorded live concerts featuring in game music make this one of the best HD remakes on the market – and it’s only available on the Playstation Vita.Read More


Persona 4 Now Has A Card Game

Posted on August 31, 2012 by Seung Lee

Atlus’s Persona 4 has had a manga, anime, fighting game, Vita port, and now, it can add a card game to the list. Persona 4: The Card Battle is an aptly named mobile game for the Android, iOS, and other such devices. It’ll feature over 400 cards based on the original PS2 RPG. Unfortunately, the game has no plans to be released anywhere besides Japan, but it (almost) never hurts to hope.

If you can read Japanese, feel free to check out the press release here. Persona 4: The Card Battle will be released sometime near the end of September, and pre-registration for it has begun today.


Persona 4: Arena Character Bio – Yukiko Amagi

Posted on July 2, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

We’re back from a lull during Canada Day to bring you a brand-new character bio for Persona 4: Arena. Just like our last bios we’ve got screenshots and a official bio from Atlus USA. Hopefully this won’t be the last biography that Atlus releases before Persona 4: Arena’s August release.

Yukiko Amagi has appeared in both Persona 3 and Persona 4. First as a non-playable character and finally joining the player’s party in the fourth installment. Her stylish red blouse, black tights and black skirt aren’t the only thing going for Yukiko, she also has some of the best grades in the class. Well she’s rich and popular with almost everyone she doesn’t let it get to her head, although she does have a tendency to be interested.Read More


Persona 4 Arena Bio: Chie Satonaka

Posted on June 27, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

Today’s Persona 4: Arena character profile, courtesy of Atlus, focuses on the familiar face that you’ve probably seen in the games artwork and on the various news stories we posted about Persona 4: Arena and Persona 4: Golden in the past few weeks.

Chie Satonaka’s green athletic jacket and skirt combination is certainly memorable, as with many of the Persona characters she has a very distinct style. Being a tomboy she’s not afraid to get involved in some rough and tumble behavior, and her signature temper sure doesn’t help that.Read More

Posted on June 5, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

Atlus has finally revealed the North American release date for Persona 4: Arena, the 360/PS3 fighting game featuring characters from the Persona universe. the game will be available on August 7, 2012, making it an excellent treat for the end of the summer.

As an added bonus the game will include both the original Japanese and English language tracks.

The game was developed by long time fighting game developer Arc System Works whose previous works include the Guity Gear and BlazBlue Series.  I know a number of people on staff here broken joysticks are excited to play Persona 4 Arena. I’m pretty new the Persona universe, but if Guilty Gear and BlazBlueI are any indication I’m sure all of this game as well.

Check out the games E3 trailer after the jump.
