Tohru Adachi coming to Persona 4 Arena Ultimax via DLC

Bumbling detective wunderkind also to get his own storyline.


Leaks for this week’s Famitsu are starting to roll in and top of the pile is word that Tohru Adachi will be a playable fighter in Atlus and Arc System Works’ upcoming Persona 4 Arena Ultimax.

Available as DLC that will be bundled with first-print run copies of the game in Japan, he’s set to join the fray using his Persona Magatsu Izanagi and will have his own story-related content as well, dubbed “Episode Adachi.”

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax will launch for PlayStation 3 in Japan on August 28, with a North American release planned on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this fall.
