Persona 4 Arena Ultimax

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax won’t be region-locked when it launches in North and South America this fall, Atlus announced.

That means that consumers all over the world can purchase the game on either PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 and it will work on their system.

Additionally, Atlus revealed that the North and South American versions of the game will share the same cover art as the Japanese release.

All pre-orders and first-print editions of the game will include a collectible Teddie bop bag and Set #1 of the Persona Tarot cards (Set #2 will be included with Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth for 3DS), as well as the Tohru Adachi character add-on pack.

View the box art and two new screenshots at the gallery. If you missed it, a new trailer was released this morning.
