Over the holidays it was announced that Persona 4 Arena Ultimax’s next update, which will upgrade the title to ver.2.0, is set to be released on January 15.
The update, which was location tested in November, adds previously console-exclusive characters Rise Kujikawa, Ken Amada and Koromaru, Tohru Adachi, Marie, and Margaret to the arcade’s playable cast as well as a number of adjustments to the existing cast. Early reports also hinted at changes to the way Shadow characters play, but specifics have yet to be revealed.
According to Persona Central, director Takumi Iguchiya stated that their goal with this update is to make every character both more unique and easier to play, a rather lofty goal in the fighting game genre.
No word has been released regarding a console release, but it should only be a matter of time.
