The perverse reluctance of the shade of Atlus to make a new Persona title for the PS3 is now reaching farcical levels – the latest addition to the series is to be a 2D fighting game spin-off, accompanied by yet another portable remake.

The game, dubbed “Persona 4: The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena,” is set to hit arcades in the spring of 2012, with a console port for PS3 and Xbox 360 following in summer. Along with the expected Persona 4 characters, some characters from Persona 3 will also make an appearance.

In addition to the fighting game, the PS Vita is to see a heavily upgraded port of Persona 4 proper, dubbed “Persona 4: The Golden” – including a new character, new voicing, more anime movies, and some coop play possibilities utilising the Vita’s new features.

The online reaction of most fans seems to be one of fatigue at having to endure yet another non-RPG release (at the current rate of progress it seems the PS3 will be obsolete before it gets a fresh Persona RPG), but there still appears to be a great deal of interest in the Vita edition.
