Persona 4 Arena Ultimax gets a trio of new challengers

Three more challengers make their way to Persona 4 Arena Ultimax: Yukari Takeba, Rise Kujikawa, and Junpei Iori.


A trio of new challengers are preparing to jump into the Persona 4 Arena Ultimax fray. Publisher Atlus announced that Yukari Takeba, Rise Kujikawa, and Junpei Iori will all make their way into the arena and each of them have brought their own respective trailer... and gimmicks.

Yukari acts as Ultimax's resident 'Power Ranger' analog, complete with pink motif and power bow. Rise (an NPC in the previous Persona 4 Arena) is the series' teenage pop star, bringing her golden vocal chords to her music-based attacks. And Junpei is ready to play ball with his baseball-themed attacks, including a swing that knocks his opponents into the rafters.

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is set to release later this fall on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The trailers are available to watch below.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
