An Army of Shadows is attacking. Who could be the one behind it all? Named IGN's Best Overall Fighting Game of 2012, and made an official selection of the Evolution Championship Series in 2013, Persona 4 Arena was a roaring success. Now, the ultimate tag team returns to present another super-heated battle! A collaboration between developers ATLUS and Arc System Works found resonance among the existing Persona/ATLUS fanbase and the hardcore fighting game community. Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is the long-awaited sequel, and a continuation of the story originally set forth in the award-winning RPG Persona 4. Bringing the series full circle and tying together the plots of Persona 3 and Persona 4, fans will enjoy controlling beautifully animated character sprites and experiencing top-notch quality, fully voiced localization that brings the popular characters to life.

If you have ever played the original Arena and loved it, than you will absolutely adore Ultimax. Essentially it is the same game, but it adds more of what made Arena such a spectacular experience. The story is a continuation of the events depicted in Persona 4 Arena and begins a few days after the previous game. The Midnight Channel is back and once again broadcasts a bizarre advertisement for another fighting tournament. The game's Story Mode is now split into two separate campaigns for the Persona 4 and Persona 3 casts. Instead of choosing just one character, you follow the whole team, often switching between smaller groups as they split up and try to discover what is going on. A survival mode has also been added named the Golden Arena Mode. As you progress, your character levels up and you increase their stats and occasionally learn new passive skills to strengthen your character.

There has also been numerous changes and tweaks to the balancing and various mechanics, such as new auto/dial combos for each returning character and a specific amount of Persona cards for each character. A new system implemented is known as the "S Hold System" which is a special attack which changes its properties the longer the A button is held down with its own meter on the screen. There are enhanced Super Moves called "Skill Boost Skill Attacks" that allows characters to perform powerful SP Skill Attacks by spending 75 SP. Evasive Actions can now be Guard Cancel Rolled into at the cost of 50 SP. Recovering from certain attacks or getting counter hit normally will cause a counter hit state as usual, only some moves now provide a window of a free Fatal Counter hit, which makes some moves more risky than before.

Shadow-type characters have also been added.

okay, so let me start this review off by saying, this game is great! i also played the first Persona 4 Arena and it was also good! i will admit straight off, i'm not the best at fighting games, i'm just average at best, that's why i appreciated that the game features "Stylish Mode" when you play with that turned on, it allows you to do amazing combos with the tap of a button, this is great for people who aren't very good at fighting games and just want to jump in and have fun! so the barrier of entry is low! but don't let Stylish mode fool you! this game is insanely deep! and if you put in the practice you could become really good at this game and discard stylish mode, stylish mode is also good if you just want to experience the story mode without having to deal with a huge challenge.

the story mode in both Persona 4 Arena games is fantastic! if you have played Persona 4 Golden, then you will truly appreciate the story mode, if you haven't played the first Persona Arena game, then i recommend you get the Story DLC in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, it will allow you to play the entire single player story from the first game within Ultimax! its 10 dollars, and if you don't want to purchase the original game, then its worth it! anyways i can highly recommend this game to anyone that wants to get into fighting games, but is scared of not being able to enjoy one because of complex controls, trust me, you will have a blast with this game, this game will satisfy beginners and pros!

I am going to admit right now, that I am not at all good at fighting games. Nevertheless, I bought this game knowing full well I was going to be spamming moves or just button mashing to progress the story. To my utter surprise however, I found myself caring about the moves I was making. I tried to learn them, pulling up the move list for each character so I could see just how amazing they really are.

Anyway, this review is more than just the fighting system, it's also about the combination of the cast of Persona 3 and 4, which is just a fan's wet dream really. Being a direct continuation of Persona 4 Arena, P4AU wastes no time in delving into the nitty gritty of the story. The Persona 3 group, the Shadow Operatives, have been kidnapped and displayed on the Midnight Channel, and red fog envelops Inaba, leaving the Investigation team baffled as to what's going on. Joined by the remaining SEES operatives, the group attempts to rescue Mitsuru and the gang, all while trying to solve the mystery of the red fog and a boy named Sho Minazuki.

Really, I was just glad to even see my favorite characters interacting with one another, but to actually control them like I imagined a fight between Persona users would play out was just icing on the cake. Everyone is here, and they all have their own quirks just like in the games. Everything stays true to them, to Yukari's fighting style of fighting in the distance, to Kanji fighting with pure strength in front of an opponent. Even the characters that don't normally fight, like Rise (my favorite) get some upgrades, and as I said before, I found myself caring about the characters move lists and attempted to learn them (I failed spectacularly).

Besides the standard story mode, it also let's you play online vs.

I bought the first Arena game for $20, the first game had so much content i was entertained for weeks. My only complaint was the story. While it was good, passing it with each character didnt add alot to the story. Now in this game There are 3 story modes. P4, P3, and Adachi give you different perspectives on the main story. Now with the gameplay, the actions are way smoother and the screen is placed farther so you can have a better field of view during those jumping or fast paced fighting. New Characters, Some new combos, More of the Persona music we love, and crisper fighting animations make this the complete package. If that wasnt enough i got a pretty big Teddie Doll and a set of Tarot Cards at no charge. Not to mention free DLC. $60 well spent.
