Persona 4: Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold hits PS3 Summer 2014


What a great name

Had enough Persona news? Well, too bad, because we forgot something from this morning's blitz of new info. That's somewhat understandable, since the reveal of a new trailer and timeframe for the sequel/update to Persona 4 Arena would be a little less immediately arresting than news about Persona 5, a Persona dungeon-crawler, and Hatsune Miku: Persona 4 Diva* 

But the story is submerged no longer, for Persona 4: Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold is coming to the PlayStation 3 in the Summer of 2014, after a stint in arcades. Among the new characters present will be Junpei Iori of Persona 4, and a new character named Sho Minazuki, who wields two swords and seems to have it in for Yuu Narukami. From the looks of things Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold aims to continue the story from where Persona 4 Arena left off, and features such "Persona 3"-esque things as a fake crucifixion and visual references to the Dark Hour.

Intriguing. Atlus seems to have found the "hook" it takes to get me to commit to a fighting game, given that the only real reason I played P4A was because it picked up where Persona 4 left off as well. Not that it wasn't worth playing otherwise, mind you, but that serious 2D fighters really aren't my cup of tea.

What did you think of Arena? Are you getting psyched to see more of the Persona 3 crew?

*Not the actual name of the game, though I wish it were, kind of.
