Persona 4 Arena will finally be released in the UK (and the rest of europe) on May 10th 2013. Nearly a whole year after it’s original release in Japan and about 9 months after it’s release in the US.
The fighter based on Persona 4 and developed by Arc System Works (Guilty Gear, BlazBlue) is also famous for being one of a few Region Locked PS3 games – designed at the time to stop sales in other regions being canabalised with Atlus saying that that the wait wouldn’t be long for the game to be released in other regions. Something which obviously hasn’t happened this time round.
If you pre-order the game, you’ll get a Soundtrack and a “Digital Fan Pack” (Wallpapers and stuff).
