TowerFall Ascension on PS4: Behind the Arena on PlayStation 4

50°
27w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements goes behind the arena today in TowerFall Ascension PS4 on PlayStation 4 with an interview below.

To quote: TowerFall Ascension launched on PS4 earlier this week, introducing PlayStation gamers to an addictive, challenging, and delightfully pure arena game. With an electric, competitive design and an all new, co-op Quest mode, TowerFall Ascension is a great reminder of why local multiplayer is so much fun.

I touched base with TowerFall creator Matt Thorson to hear more about what inspired TowerFall, how it feels on PS4, and what it was like working as a small indie developer. My thanks to Matt for spending time on PlayStation.Blog!
 
PlayStation.Blog: What inspired your original vision of TowerFall? Did you always have a competitive element in mind since the game's conception?

Matt Thorson: I tried a lot of things with TowerFall early on, with a focus on single-player gameplay. But the competitive modes just clicked, and it was obvious I had to follow the game in that direction. I realized, once I started designing the versus gameplay, that I had been thinking about local multiplayer for years. I was happy to finally have an outlet for those ideas.

Atlus Confirms Back Into The TV: Persona 4 Arena on PSN Tomorrow

50°
84w ago - Atlus Project Lead Yu Namba has confirmed today that Back Into The TV: Persona 4 Arena hits PSN tomorrow.

Below are the details, to quote: Hello Persona fans and fighting game fans!

We're excited to announce that Persona 4 Arena, which earned the honor of "Best Fighting Game" at the [Register or Login to view links], is going to be available for digital purchase and download on the PlayStation Network tomorrow.

Some of you may not be familiar with Persona 4 Arena, or the Persona series. You may, however, be aware that ATLUS launched [Register or Login to view links] for PS Vita last November to critical acclaim, and this title helped generate a great deal of interest for the Persona series.

Yes, Persona 4 Arena is a fighting game - but who says fighting games can't have a story? Fans that got a taste of the series through Persona 4 Golden can enjoy a whole new story arc in Persona 4 Arena.

The game takes place two months after the protagonist of Persona 4 Golden - given the name Yu Narukami - leaves the rural town of Inaba. Rumor of a fighting tournament TV...
 

Video: Persona 4 Arena Bursting Onto PlayStation 3 Today

300°
110w ago - Atlus Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has announced alongside a video trailer that Persona 4 Arena is bursting onto PlayStation 3 today!

To quote: Persona 4 Arena, the freakishly gifted fighting progeny of [Register or Login to view links] (makers of Persona and other fine JRPGs) and Arc System Works (makers of Guilty Gear and BlazBlue), is out now in North America for the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system.

What exactly do you get when you marry Persona and its rich I-want-to-go-to-there universe of characters and mythology and some masterful fighting game design?

Based on the fact that it's Japan's top arcade fighting game, Japan's bestselling conventional console fighting game of the past four years, and one of North America's most anticipated fighting games in recent memory, it would seem you get one heck of a mix of gaming DNA. It probably has a perfect SAT score and everything.

With a unique fighting engine that deftly incorporates the titular Personas and their breathtaking special powers; a roster of thirteen intricately balanced fighters, a majority of whom hail from the acclaimed Persona 4 (and a few from the equally beloved Persona 3); expertly rendered character sprites and backgrounds; a smorgasbord of features, modes, and content...
 

Atlus Confirms Persona 4 Arena as First PS3 Region-Locked Game

400°
115w ago - This weekend Atlus has confirmed that Persona 4 Arena will indeed be the first PS3 region-locked video game for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

Up until now, all games (not Blu-ray movies) have been region-free on the PS3, however, the Atlus representative stated to [Register or Login to view links] that "Persona 4 Arena will be region-locked in all territories on both PS3 and 360."

Sony developers have been able to region-lock PlayStation 3 games since PS3 Firmware update 3.30, although publishers didn't utilize the option until the PS3 3.50+ SDK.

From Atlus Staffer lol, forums via [Register or Login to view links] to quote: "Sorry for the delayed confirmation, but yes, the PS3 version game will be region-locked. I certainly can't offer details as to why, but there might be an official response at some point.

To reiterate, our version of the game works for the North and South America regions. Also keep in mind that both the NA and JP versions have both English and Japanese text/voice options, making them nearly identical. I'm unsure of what the case will be for the EU version."
