Another of Persona's long list of characters joins the Persona 4 Arena Ultimax fight in a new trailer, but in more exciting news we finally find out when we can join the battle ourselves!
Mitsuru Kirijo, The Shadow Operatives head and daughter of the Kirijo Group from Persona 3, re-enters the fray after her appearance in the first Persona 4 Arena via this new trailer. Mitsuru shows off her freezing abilities and devastating combos including one where she has her Persona freeze the opponent in ice before she breaks the ice apart with her staff that looks pretty amazing. The trailer ends with a brief tease for another character highlighted by a maniacal laugh, and we can only wonder who that might be.
The trailer accompanies a press release sent out by Atlus letting North Americans know when to expect Persona 4 Arena Ultimax on store shelves in this neck of the woods. Specifically, Atlus said the following:
"Mark your calendars, Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is confirmed to hit the streets on Sept. 30, 2014 for both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Turns out we're really good at guessing placeholder dates."
Yes, we suppose you are Atlus. Nice work there. We look forward to going back to high school to crack some skulls in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax in late September.
