The lights are on
Persona 4 Arena is an intense fighting experience aimed at hardcore fans of the genre. The additions to the formula in the Ultimax version don't necessarily make the experience more accessible, but the latest trailer and screenshots should give fans of the original incarnation reasons to be excited.
The characters once again find them competing in the P-1 Climax, but the roster of fighters has some additions, like Junpei (from Persona 3) and Rise (from Persona 4). Check out all of the newest media below for an idea of what to expect.
With Persona 5 confirmed to be in the works, it seems strange that Atlus only showed off Ultimax and Persona Q at E3. Hopefully, development on the next main entry is still proceeding smoothly.

I can't wait for this! Persona 4 Arena has become one of my favorite fighters, and it'll be awesome to play as Rise, one of my favorite female characters. Although, since she always ran support and analysis in P4, it'll be interesting to see what she and Himiko can do in the ring.
