Persona 4 fighter coming to PS3, 360

Persona 4 becoming 2D fighter.

While Persona 4: The Golden is definitely one of this week’s highlights in Famitsu, the bigger news looks to be a new Persona game for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. No, it’s not an RPG. Oddly enough, it’s a fighting game by Arc System Works.

Persona 4: The Ultimate Mayonaka Arena is a 2D fighter. An arcade version will debut in spring 2012, followed by a PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 release in the summer. Currently, four characters are confirmed: Main/Izanagi, Chie/Tomoe, Yosuke/Jiraiya, and Aigis/Athena.

Stay tuned for additional details.

Thanks, Sinobi.
