Better Late Than Never, Persona 4 Arena planned to finally be released in Europe
Go ahead and read the good news down below. Don't worry, it's not that long.
Persona 4 Arena is a critically-acclaimed fighting game that has been out for quite some time now.Last year it earned the coveted award of '2012's Fighting Game of the Year' across multiple publications. Though not as popular as games like Super Street Fighter IV AE or Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, the game has certainly earned such a title by making a big impact in the fighting game scene.
However those who have followed the game's success closely may notice that among those praises, very few of them come from locations such as Germany, France, or even the United Kingdom. This is mainly because for some reason, P4A was never properly released in Europe, denying thousands of players from playing as their favorite character/persona combatants.
Well soon, players will no longer have to import either the US or Japanese version of the game to gain access to it, because the official Persona European Facebook page has released a status update about the European release. The game has already been sent to Sony and Microsoft for approval, and once approved, a release date will inevitably follow. Here is the official statement from the page:
For you European players out there, are you still excited to play this game, or is has the interest faded away over time? Nevertheless, for those that do decide to play the game, they'll have a lot of catching up to do if they hope to be on par with the U.S. and Japanese competitors.
Let's also just hope that in the future, such a huge delay for a popular game like this never occurs to tease customers again.
