Atlus is adding more story content to Persona 4: Arena for consoles. The PS3/Xbox 360 release will only have four playable characters in the beginning: Yu (the protagonist), Chie, Yosuke, and Yukiko. Players will have to unlock the rest by completing scenarios which have Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 style cutscenes.
Set after the events in Persona 4, the protagonist returns to Inaba and hears about a new TV program on the Midnight Channel.The Investigation Team head back inside the TV world and right into a tournament with other persona users.
Arc System Works is updating the arcade version of Persona 4: Arena with a patch in the beginning of May. The list of tweaks is gets technical like removing the ability to escape throws when in fear status and reducing the Max Burst from taking 68% of your SP (super meter) to 67%. Each character has also been rebalanced. Since the console version of Persona 4: Arena doesn’t ship until August there’s plenty of time for Arc System Works to add these tweaks (and maybe others) into the home release.
