I am someone who did not enter the person series until Persona 5 was launched in 2017. I feel that this is quite common for many people in the West considering that _p5 could be said that it was one of the first games of person who really exploded in the markets outside Japan. However, because I am something like a newcomer to the person’s franchise, some previous deliveries (especially spin-offs) passed completely unnoticed for me when they were launched for the first time. Persona 4 Arena Ultimax turns out to be one of those games, which means that your new port for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC is the first time I experience it by myself. Now that I spent a time with the game before its official launch, I am more than happy that Atlus has opted to bring this game back so that the novices like me play, although it is possible that the veterans do not find much to what to cling at the moment..
If you are like me and you have never played Press 4 Arena This is essentially only a fighting game that presents not only to the cast of person 4 but several characters of person 3 (and some newcomers) as well. Most of the list of 22 game characters see fighters holding the weapons they have equipped with their respective person’s deliveries. In addition, each character can also use the person of him to beat opponents and counteract incoming attacks.
The fight itself in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is incredibly fun and much more stratified than I expected. I still have not discovered all combat ins and out, but finding a good balance between creating combos that incorporate your weapons and person skills is really satisfactory. Since this is a title developed by ARC System Works, there is a lot of depth in what the combat offers here. Simultaneously, as someone who is more a rookie in fighting games, I still enjoy just by simply pressing the buttons to learn how each character works. Basically, this is an accessible game for fans of fighting games or for those who only seek to beat people with their favorite person character.
Persona 4 Arena Ultimax It also has a story mode, but I can not say that I found myself as committed to him. This is mainly due to the fact that there is only too much dialogue that is presented here. And although that is almost expected Since this is a person’s game, after all, the story is still not so convincing. Despite this, it is great to see the Personna 3 and 4 The Elections cross each other, even if the narrative that is being spinning is not considered Canon.
Probably the worst part of this port of person 4 Arena Ultimax is that there is nothing completely new included in this package at this time. This is simply a complete collection of p4au and all DLCs that accompany it. Even refer to this as a remastering probably gives you too much credit. That is not because the images here are ugly or disappointing in any way, but the challenges to the graphics will not be surprised in any way. Even so, the characters look very good and have some stellar animations, so it is hard to feel disappointed.
At this time, the only new thing we can expect from person 4 Arena Ultimax is the reversal network code. This is a characteristic that Atlus announced that it would be available in a few months, but only for PS4 and PC. For those who do not know, the reversal network code is essentially vital for any fighting game that wants to have a stable community of players that compete in online matches. As such, its absence here in the launch is a bit disappointing, especially because it would have been the main new reason to buy the game on the first day. The fact that Rollback Netcode is added to P4AU However, whatever it is a great victory and will surely guarantee that this title remains relevant in the years to come.
Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is a really simple launch in general. This game is simply taking new platforms to extend the useful life it has, which is not bad about considering that p4au is a very fun fighting title. Even so, seeing its launch here without any outstanding feature makes it a relaunch that veterans can probably expect, at least until the reversal network code arrived later in the year. However, if you are like me and you are looking to see what a person fighting game can have, I definitely recommend that you take a look.
Persona 4 Arena Ultimax will be launched next week on March 17 and will be available at PS4, Switch and PC. The editor provided a PS4 code for these impressions.
