If you like Guilty Gear/ BlazeBlue / Hokuto No Ken/ Sengoku Basara X/Arcana Heart 3 or pretty much anything Arc System Works and Daisuke Ishiwatari touch, then you should be interested in Persona 4 Arena. Shoryuken.com has 45 minutes of Persona 4 Arena footage taken at the recent Tokyo Game Show.
A great deal of over the shoulder footage capturing what looks very much like BlazBlue with angst ridden teens, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure’esque “Stand” game play, and altogether too much air/ground dashing. So far I am really liking what I see both in terms of bringing something new to the Guilty Gear/BlazBlue formula, and the character dynamics and sexy looking interface. I can’t wait to get my hands on it and beat the hell out of Cory with characters he wishes he could smoke skinny cigarettes with, take out to sushi dinners, and accompany to local anime conventions.
Check out the 45 minutes of game play videos and start practicing long chains and instant air dashing shenanigans, Ideally on the GGPO supported BlazBlue Continuum Shift (Yeah, it’s that cheap, and yes you should be playing it, and yes I am a hypocrite because I don’t play it, and yes I’d still beat Cory.)
The PS3 versions of these links seem to not be working… Oh well…
Bonus Points: If you STILL haven’t had enough dashing/overdriven metal riffs/samurai girls in conical hats. Grab HardCorps Uprising. Yes that just happened.
