Persona 4 Arena - Analysis

Arc System Works has been making great fighting games since I was a teenager (meaning: a long time ago). Two of its flagship franchises, Guilty Gear and BlazBlue have enjoyed an exciting niche for years. However, despite having a prominent audiovisual section and game mechanics that are unique in their class, they have never taken the path of the offerings that Capcom or even SNK have made to the genre. In fact, even among the most staunch fans of the fighting genre, these games and others like them have something like a "scarlet letter" on their heads. We call them "anime fighters," a term as useless as it is meaningless. They may be the technically demanding engines of struggle, or perhaps the nuns' cross-dressing, but for some reason this subgenre within a subgenre has always been forced to stay on the corner.

Until now.

To present Persona 4 Arena , it must be said that it is a fighting game born from the unlikely collaboration between Arc System Works and the Persona 4 development team in Atlus. And often debut has meant. The game not only provides unprecedented accessibility to endure while keeping the full depth of high-level tournaments intact, it also does so with arrogance and security that makes it impossible to ignore or forget. This game was not made to stay in a bad mood corner, friends, but to go on stage.

Above all, Persona 4 Arena presents a show, a show that begins with its introductory rocker video and ends with flashes of paparazzi cameras as you stand over your opponent's battered body. Each display serves up a feast of visual and sound flavors that stick to the roof of your mouth. Punk roses and golden yellows dominate the palette with a fresh glow, accentuating menus and interfaces that look better art direction than all of the few games I've played. It is a luster that few games, those of 2D and few others, can match. The soundtrack manages to meet the high standards set by its visuals with a mix of that hard rock for which the Arc System games are famous and small picks from the excellent Persona 4 soundtrack. I challenge you to refrain from singing "Reach Out to the Truth" when you listen to it while you throw the smacks.

That same fusion that we find in the soundtrack is present throughout the video game. While it is in every way a fighting game along the same lines as Guilty Gear and BlazBlue , it is also a Persona game from start to finish. Persona 4's original director Katsura Hashino worked with his original team to craft the story mode script for Persona 4 Arena, which functions as a canonical sequel to the Persona 4 RPG. This mode is aimed entirely at those fans of the series who are more interested in knowing the destinies of their favorite characters than in learning complex combos. You start by choosing one of the four Persona avatars , and as you complete their missions, more and more cast characters become available, eventually completing the drawing for you. Any fan of the Persona series will be happy with the script, and some of the story lines really extend the narrative arcs of their respective characters. Just be ready to spend a lot more time watching than playing.
