Rise Kujikawa playable in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax

Weekly magazines confirm half of last week's Best Buy leak.

Rise Kujikawa in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax

Persona 4‘s Rise Kujikawa will be playable in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, this week’s Famitsu and Dengeki PlayStation reveal.

The news comes following a listing on Best Buy’s website claiming both Rise and Persona 3‘s Ken Amada would be playable in the fighting game sequel.

In the original Persona 4 Arena, Rise was not playable, and acted only as an in-game announcer.

The sequel also boasts a new gameplay mode, something-Arena Mode (it’s censored by our source), which features character growth and Social Link building elements.

Famitsu also has a release date and price for the title. While the source has censored out the day, we know it’ll be out in August and cost 6,000-something yen.

Thanks, [email protected] and Famitsu.
