Up until now, Atlus and Arc System Works' Persona 4: Ultimate in Mayanoka Arena
seemed destined to be a one-region-only title. For those of you in North America who were worried that you might have to pay an outrageous importing fee to enjoy the game, today is your lucky day, as Atlus has now revealed that they plan to bring the Persona 4
inspired fighter to North America.Persona 4: The Ultimate in Mayanoka Arena
looks to expand the Persona
series beyond its traditional RPG roots and into other genres. Here's a comment from Tim Pivnicny, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Atlus, as to their plans for the title:
The Persona series has had tremendous success in North America, and Persona 4 in particular opened the series up to wider audiences than ever before. Now we're looking to expand Persona even further by teaming up with a very strong partner, Arc System Works, to move the franchise outside of the RPG genre and develop its potential in new and exciting ways.
For those of you who have been avoiding trailers due to the disappointment of the game not coming to your region, here's a new tutorial video for you to view now that you won't have the burning jealousy of the Japanese market tempering your enjoyment of the trailer.
Much like its Japanese counterpart, the North American edition of Persona 4: The Ultimate in Mayanoka Arena
is expected to come out this Summer. Sadly, there is still no word on a European release for the title.
