Atlus is on a roll after the acquisition by Sega, and today it released a large batch of information, screenshots and a trailer about the sequel of Persona 4: Arena, titled Persona 4 the Ultimax: Ultra Suplex Hold developed in collaboration with Arc System Works.

We learn that the story will be set a few days after Persona 4: Arena and the game will let you play all characters with their normal version or their shadow version. The shadow will have a different fighting style than the original character, as they’ll gain SP quickly, but won’t have some techniques, like the awakening. They’ll feature a high risk, high reward battle style.

In addition to this we learn about the introduction of a new stage, called P-1 Climax and new characters: Yukari Takeba and Junpei Iori from Persona 3 will join the fray together with a mysterious character named Sho Minazuki, whose purpose in the story is unknown.

Finally there’ll be two new  technique, a Roll Combo and a S-Hold system activated by holding the button and then releasing it to activate a powerful technique with effects different for each character.

Below you can see the screenshots and the trailer. It looks awesome, doesn’t it?
