“While [multi-language support] remains a feature we are unable to add in every one of our releases due to any number of factors, we are incredibly excited to be able to offer our fans the frequently requested dual language option in as highly anticipated a title as Persona 4 Arena,” commented Tim Pivnicny, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at ATLUS. “Persona 4 Arena represents one of the biggest investments in ATLUS history, in addition to one of the most ambitious collaborations with a developer as esteemed as Arc System Works, and as such we have spared no expense in endeavoring to ensure that the final North American release lives up to our proud tradition of quality and to our fans’ lofty expectations for us.”
Persona 4 Arena will be available for the 360 and PS3 in just about two months, starting August 7th. And if that’s not enough, just check out this fresh E3 trailer spotlighting some of the new features coming up in Persona 4 Golden!
This enhanced version of the original Persona 4 RPG will be available in North America on October 23rd.
