Persona 4 The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold is an arcade update to the original 2012 fighting game by Arc System Works that has been announced to release in Winter this year. The game will include the entire base game and all the characters present, which contains all the major Persona 4 characters and few Person 3 characters. The game released in Arcades in March last year and on consoles in July. So there could be a console port of the newly announced hype titled game. It is also set after Persona 4 Arena, which has a canon story set after the events of Persona 4 and before the secret ending of Persona 4 Golden for the PlayStation Vita.
The new game will include two new characters from Persona 3: Yukari Takeba and Junpei Iori. You can see some screens of the characters below.
Persona 4 first released on the PlayStation 2 in 2008, part of the Persona series in Atlus’ Shin Megami Tensei franchise. The game received critical acclaim and strong sales, quite unusual since the game released very late into the consoles life cycle (with the PlayStation 3 releasing 2 years earlier). Since then the game has spawned many adaptations and merchandises. To date, there are three manga adaptations, a light novel adaptation, and oddly enough a live stage production. An anime adaptation for the game, titled Persona 4: The Animation aired in late 2011 and garnered lots of attention. Persona 4 Golden, an enhanced port of the original game released last year on the PlayStation Vita and included a few new features and story elements, including a new secret ending.Persona 4 Arena also released last year with Arc System Works, who develop the Blazblue and Guilty Gear series, and has surpassed expectations.
Persona 4 The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold will officially launch around Japan on arcades later this year, with no mentions of an international release or console port. But with a name that hype, why wouldn’t it?
