Atlus confirmed that Adachi will be a playable character in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax. Tohru Adachi and his Persona Magatsu-Izanagi will be avaiable in the United States as a DLC fighter.
Adachi was previously revealed to be a playable character in screenshots for the Japanese version of the game. He will be available as a free download during the first week of Persona 4 Arena Ultimax‘s release in the Americas. After the initial release of Ultimax, he will be available as paid DLC. No pricing has been announced.
A demo of Persona 4 Arena Ultimax will be playable at EVO 2014.
Atlus is also putting up $1,000 and some other Atlus swag as part of the prize purse for the Persona 4 Arena side tournament at EVO. Those looking to participate can register online at Dustloop and on-site up to an hour before the tournament begins.
Atlus and Madcatz are teaming up to release a Persona 4 Arena Ultimax Fight Stick. The design of the Fight Stick will be supervised by the Persona design team. It will be compatible with PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
It will be customizable to allow face plate and button switching. The stick also is equipped with a earphone jack and is easy to carry. No further information has been revealed, but expect more as the game gets closer to its Japanese release date in August.
Adachi as a playable character in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is insane. It seems like he will be integrated into the story aspect of the game. P4A was such a weird way for Atlus to continue both the Persona 4 and Persona 3 stories, but it worked. The only bummer is the very short window to get Adachi for free, but anyone looking to pick up Ultimax likely will cop it day one.
