Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is Europe-bound - Thanks, Sega!

By Ian Dransfield on at

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, the sequel to the fighting game spin-off of one of the world's greatest JRPGs, is coming to Europe - thanks to Sega.

The publisher has struck a deal to bring Ultimax to the UK and other EU nations in November, with it appearing in shops both physical and digital.

Jurgen Post, president and COO for Sega Europe, said some words: "We're delighted to be able to bring Persona 4 Arena Ultimax to Europe for all the fans of the series over here... It represents a great new addition to SEGA's portfolio of tournament calibre fighting games."

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax was released in Japan at the end of August, while the US get their grubby mitts on it September 30. We just have to wait another month or so - it's not that bad, all things considered.

Interesting note: the game's name translates as Persona 4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold in Japan. At least according to some in-depth research*.
