Anime fighting game fans rejoice as Persona 4 Arena Ultimax get remastered for modern consoles!
Arc System Works gave fighting game fans something to rejoice over with their announcement at The Game Awards.
Arc System Works is well known for its high-paced anime-style fighting games such as Guilty Gear Strive. The Japanese video game publisher has been giving their older titles some love by adding in rollback netcode. This revolution started last year with Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R. Recently at CEO, the company also announced that BlazBlue Central Fiction and BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle would also be getting the same treatment. Now they’ve announced that their next title is Persona 4 Arena Ultimax!
The updated Persona 4 Arena Ultimax!
In a nod to this wave of support for their old titles, Arc System Works announced that Persona 4 Arena Ultimax will be getting a remaster for PS4, Nintendo Switch, and Steam! This will be the first time that the 2.5 version of the game will be available outside of Japan! The game has been praised by the FGC and Persona fans alike. Even for those who do not like fighting games, the story continues post Persona 4.
Very little info on the game was given at the announcement. What we do know is that the game will release on March 17th 2022. Unfortunately, is it unknown if Rollback Netcode will be implemented. Though it is likely, considering the success seen with Guilty Gear Strive.
Despite being an 8-year-old game, it still has its die-hard fans. Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is a common sight in many side tournaments at bigger events, and this remaster could potentially see it come back to the main stage!
