Rise confirmed playable for Persona 4 Arena: Ultimax
Rise Kujikawa is playable, Ken Amada is rumored to playable, and the game is coming to home consoles in Japan this August, while the North American release will be going down this Fall, possibly in September.
As revealed in the latest issue of Famitsu, Rise Kujikawa will be a playable fighter in Persona 4 Arena: Ultimax. Her reveal comes as a surprise because she's a support character in Persona 4 and an NPC in Arena, but here she is. Could the Best Buy rumor be true?
If you're unfamiliar with said rumor, a recent (but now deleted) Best Buy product listing features a quote, which reveals both Rise and Persona 3's Ken Amada as new additions to the P4: Arena roster. It also suggests the game's North American release will occur on September 16.
Could Ken be next?
Also confirmed in the Famitsu article, was the fact that the game will be released this coming August in Japan and would cost over 6,000 yen. The article also mentions a new mode. No exact details were given, but there's a character growth building aspect in which you build up your communication, or social link, with your navigator. More will be revealed when the article officially comes out.
