Persona 4: The Ultimate Ultra Suplex Hold Revealed

Persona 4: The Ultimate Ultra Suplex Hold Revealed

Persona 4: Arena gets a sequel

Written by punkyliar on 29 September 13 at 16:03

If you remember, way back at the start of its development, Persona 4: Arena was actually known as Persona 4: The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena. After realising that the title may be a bit too much of a mouthful, they shortened it. They haven't learnt their lesson yet though. P4A is going to be getting a sequel, a game that is currently called Persona 4: The Ultimate Ultra Suplex Hold. Details of the game's existence began emerging at the end of August after developer Arc System Works held location tests at two arcades in different cities in Japan. One month later, we finally get some awaited details.

Many of P4A's fighters will be returning. Yu Narukami, Elizabeth, Labrys, Chie Satonaka, Teddie, Yosuke Hanamura, Naoto Shirogane, Aigis, Akihiko Sanada, Kanji Tatsumi, Yukiko Amagi and Mitsuru Kirijo have all been confirmed. Yukari Takeba and her Persona Isis will be joining the crew from Persona 3, as will Junpei Iori and his Persona Trismegistus. A brand new character has also been revealed. Apart from his red hair and character art below, little is known about Sho Minazuki.

A few days after the events of P4A, the Investigation Team and the Shadow Walkers are still enquiring about the person responsible for the P-1 Grand Prix. Once they think that everything has gone quiet, the Midnight Channel is broadcast in Inaba once again. The channel is promoting a new tournament called the P-1 Grand Prix, where space and time are distorted, people are disappearing and Inaba is shrouded in a red mist. When it seems like things can't get any worse, the leader of the Shadow Operatives Mitsuru appears to be crucified on TV. Can the Shadow Walker Emergency Rescue Team save him and his company and will the issue ever be resolved?

Persona 4: The Ultimate Ultra Suplex Hold is coming to Japanese arcades at some point during the early winter period. Versions of the game for the current generation of consoles are also thought to be in development, but we're yet to receive confirmation of this. Publisher Atlus has set up a teaser site that is counting down to November 24th, when we're sure that more information will become available. As always, we'll be looking out for that!

This game is also just an update of the current P4A just like BB:CSE. However, I wont get this game until it hits <$30. I'm still missing 3 chivos for the P4A.

The first one was okay. Good fighter but they need to rework on that story mode... super long dialogues that were not fun to read or watch...

I'm excited for this. Liked P4A and recently watched the anime, which I really enjoyed. So I'm kinda feeling the Persona stuff right now. I'll just need to acquire a copy of P4A to finish off more of the achievements before the new one comes out.

As much as I love Arc', when the xbox finally got a persona game, I kinda wanted it to be, y'know, a Persona game. Not a fighting game with persona characters.

P4A is, without a doubt, one of the most ridiculously difficult fighters I've played (and that's coming from someone who 100%'d the first BlazBlue, Mortal Kombat, Soulcalibur 4, and got all but the Survivals in DOA4). That Score Attack/whatever mode is ungodly hard. The Challenges/Training is also way too fiddly on trying to link together combos.

P4a was a huge letdown, it was really dumbed down compared to blazblue and guilty gear :/
ah well, I'm picking up a ps3 next month jusy for blazblue chrono phantasma.

I highly doubt this will come to xbox, as chrono phantasma and xrd are ps3 only.

you could ice car all the way through score attack.

they really stepped the game up CS2 onwards.

I'll have to remember that. ;)

I'm really bad at fighters and I really struggled with the score attack on CT.
