Last year, Atlus announced Persona 4: The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena, a fighting game spinoff of the popular RPG series developed by Arc System Works (who are also responsible for BlazBlue). Until now, it had only been confirmed for Japan, but it looks like an American release is in the works as well. Probably.
Yesterday, the publisher sent out an email to their Atlus Faitful mailing list that contained just a black rectangle. But if you have a crappy monitor like I do where black doesn’t really mean black, you could see letters hiding in the supposedly blank email. After a little image manipulation, the “Stay Tuned” image to your left became clear.
Atlus being Atlus, this could be anything. But the investigators at NeoGAF narrowed it down to Persona 4: The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena (which will probably have a different title in the US) due to the starburst pattern in the game’s logo (which is also in the “Stay Tuned” image).
Persona 4: The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena will be available in Japan for the PS3 and Xbox 360 this Summer with an American release to follow. Probably. But also very likely.
