Arcade version to feature edit player profile options and in-game purchases.
Atlus recently revealed the North American release window for 2D fighting game Persona 4 Arena for the Xbox 360 and PS3. Fans in Japan who can't wait and would rather check out the arcade version now have a date for that particular version: March 1.
In addition, the arcade version will feature NESiCA IC card support and a player's guild feature. The latter allows gamers to edit their profile and purchase character colors and add-ons via in-game 'Persona Dollars'.
The 2D fighting game is developed by Arc System Works, who are famous for developing the Guilty Gear and BlazBlue series. The game's story takes place after the events of Persona 4 and will also feature characters from Persona 3. Other fighting games Arc System Works created using popular licenses include Fist of the North Star and Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan, which have not seen a release in the Western markets.
