The Persona 4 revival won’t stop with the anime and Persona 4: The Golden. Arc System Works are working on a Persona 4 fighting game, development of which is being handled by the BlazBlue team.

 

The game is titled Persona 4: Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena, as reported by Sinobi.

 

Interestingly, it takes place two months after Persona 4 and continues that game’s story. The fighting tournament is apparently being hosted by none other than Teddie.

 

Characters that are confirmed to be playable are Yosuke, Chie, Yu (the main character) and…Aigis?! Yes, the game will include characters from Persona 3 as well. Shoji Meguro will be composing music for the game and Katsura Hashino will be directing.

 

Persona 4 G: Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena will be released in Japanese arcades in spring 2012 and will follow on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in summer 2012 in Japan.
