Persona 4: The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena
ペルソナ4 ジ・アルティメット イン マヨナカアリーナ
Persona 4 Arena known as Persona 4: The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena ペルソナ4 ジ・アルティメット イン マヨナカアリーナ in Japan, is an upcoming 2012 fighting video game, developed by Arc System Works based on the Shin Megami Tensei: Persona series owned by Atlus. The game takes place two months after the events of Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 and features characters from both that game and Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3. The game was released in Japan in March 2012 for arcades and then in the summer for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles.
The game is set over two years after the ending of The Answer in Persona 3 FES and two months after the True Ending from Persona 4. As a result of Teddie's sudden disappearance in Inaba, his comrades from the Investigation Team begin watching the Midnight Channel, where random people are often seen, in hopes of spotting him. They find what appears to be Teddie in a pirate outfit announcing a fighting tournament called the "P-1 Grand Prix" to see who is the "Ultimate Persona User". Confused by this turn of events, the group agrees to reunite and enter the tournament to find out what has happened to their friend, as well as see who among them is the "Ultimate Persona User". All of the characters are also meant to have their own original storylines.
