It looks like Persona 4 Arena Ultimax just got another classy contender with Margaret, an elegant resident of the mysterious Velvet Room.
UPDATE: Atlus has officially released a trailer for Persona 4 Arena Ultimax featuring Margaret in action.
While adapting the popular Persona series into a fighting game seemed a strange choice at first, once Persona 4 Arena (and its many updates) arrived it became clear what a strangely perfect choice it was, bringing the deep character interactions and winding story of the popular RPG series to life with the fast-paced flair of a fighting game.
While most characters wield a single Persona, powerful spirits who represent aspects of the character's personality, Margaret's got three— Yoshitsune, Cu Chulainn, and Ardha. Other than mentioning Margaret's triple-persona style, Developer Arc System works has stayed tight-lipped about how this newcomer will play when she and the seven other newly-added characters join the original cast on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this fall. Since Margaret spends most of her time in the Persona games tending to the needs of others, here's hoping she gets to let her hair down and go for what she actually wants in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax.
Persona 4 Arean Ultimax will be available on Sept. 30.
