Persona 4 Arena Ultimax getting Tohru Adachi DLC

Publisher Atlus is inching closer to releasing its upcoming fighter Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, so they're starting to think about DLC characters. The first one was revealed earlier today, with Tohru Adachi set to join the cast of fighters. He'll also be playable for free for the first week following the game's launch.

Adachi is described as the series' "egocentric police dick," revealing a seemingly good-natured, bumbling detective. Adachi will bring his Persona, Magatsu-Izanagi of the Jester arcana, into the arena, as well.

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax will release on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this fall. For more on how the game's coming along, check out this livestream video for full gameplay footage.
