Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is just under two months away from release, and publicity for the game is still circulating to increase hype and attention. Celebrated as a great remaster of the old 2013 title, Persona 4 Arena Ultimax on current-gen seeks to collect everything the game has, from downloadable content to music and bonus content.
That said, the upcoming port has a brand new trailer available earlier today. The trailer, intended to highlight gameplay and combat, was posted on Atlus’ official YouTube channel. You can watch the brand new trailer below.
Most of what this trailer shows is just in-engine gameplay with various characters and lets players know that pre-orders for the game are open now, at least on Steam. The game also has a big advantage in that the game collects both patch 2.50, a version stuck in arcades and Japanese consoles for almost a decade, and all the game’s DLC, including all three characters DLC, tons of character colors, and in-game music.
However, a pressing concern is, again, the absolute lack of rollback netcode. The fact that public announcements and trailers continue to circulate for the game and yet no word on it other than a brief “consideration”. Atlus, and by extension SEGA, seem not to care that people care about good online features.
We can compare this to BlazBlue Centralfiction, which saw an absolutely massive increase in the player base after the throwback beta was released in early January. And the game has since maintained that, with its sister game Cross Tag Battle also getting canceled this year. All of this is very disconcerting.
Persona 4 Arena Ultimax will be released on March 17, 2022 for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam. The game is currently available on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
