Video Game: Persona 4 Arena Ultimax
aka: Persona 4 The Ultimate In Mayonaka Arena
The Final Battle Begins!

"Hahahahaha! The P-1 Climax... It's the end of the world, one-on-one death match that's worthy of the name 'climax'! And best of all, if you don't win the one-on-one tournament to the finish within the hour, the world will end! No punches pulled this time!"
General Teddie

Persona 4: Arena Ultimax, or Persona 4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold in Japan, is the sequel to Persona 4 Arena. It was released as a Japanese arcade location test in August 2013. A console port for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 was released in Japan on August 28, 2014, with an international release soon afterward.

In Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, the characters from Persona 4 and Persona 3 once again find themselves teaming up to face off in the P-1 Climax, a series of battles which must be won before the world ends. The original cast of characters from Persona 3 and 4 are back to discover the mastermind behind the whole tournament, while a few new faces join the fight, including Junpei Iori, Yukari Takeba, Rise Kujikawa, and more. But standing in their way is the dual katana-wielding Sho Minazuki, a huge threat to everyone involved in the P-1 Climax. Worse yet, there's a Sho lookalike who can wield a Persona...

New playable characters include:

The sequel also introduces "Shadow" versions of most of the cast, such as Shadow Yu (who previously only appeared in Persona 4: The Animation), a Shadow Labrys who uses Ariadne instead of Asterius, and Shadow Kanji. These versions have tweaked stats and use a new mechanic called "Shadow Frenzy" in place of the ability to Burst. Furthermore, new stages such as Junes and Tartarus have been added.
