Atlus and ArcSys announced the release date for Persona 4 Arena: Ultimax, the fighting game based off the Persona franchise. The game will launch on September 30th of this year and be priced at $59.99. The price point comes at a bit of a surprise considering the game is a new version of the previous title.

In the release, they described some of the new features in the game, as seen below.
In Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, the characters from Persona 4 and Persona 3 once again find themselves teaming up to face off in the P-1 Climax, a series of battles which must be won before the world ends. The original cast of characters from Persona 3 and 4 are back to discover the mastermind behind the whole tournament, while a few new faces join the fight, including Junpei Iori, Yukari Takeba, Rise Kujikawa, and more. But standing in their way is the dual katana-wielding Sho Minazuki, a huge threat to everyone involved in the P-1 Climax. Worse yet, there’s a Sho lookalike who can wield a Persona…

Each playable character in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is involved in a story mode that continues past their individual games to reveal more about them and how they came to be involved in the P-1 Climax. Persona 4 Arena Ultimax expands on its pedigree as a tournament-caliber fighting game with a new Shadow type with completely different fighting mechanics for each character. Both newcomers and hardcore gamers alike can find the style that works best for their individual style.

Just announced is that Persona 3’s Ken Amada will team up with Koromaru to join in the battle. Ken will specialize in longer range melee attacks, but he gets access to speed attacks when he calls in Koromaru.
