According to Beast Note, the console version of Persona 4 Arena (or Persona 4: The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena as it is known there) has broken records in the fighting game genre. It is now the best selling conventional fighting game in the past four years, selling over 138,000 copies in just four days. To compare, Street Fighter IV only sold 86,000 in it’s first week and Tekken 6 sold approximately 103,000. In fact, the only fighting games that beat Persona 4 Arena were non-conventional Square-Enix titles Dissidia and Dissidia Duodecim which sold around 490,000 and 286,000 units respectively. The questions we should ask now are “what does this mean for the FGC in Japan?” and “will the game have similar success here in America?”
