Persona fans and Rise romancers, GET EXCITED BECAUSE EVERYONE'S FAVOURITE WAIFU IS BACK!
Our favourite Persona idol Rise Kujikawa has been announced as a playable character in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax!
This will be the first time players get to fight at all with Rise. In the last Persona 4 Arena, she was featured in the game, but no arcade mode or story was available in her character. Also in the original Persona 4, she was a battle guide and a social link character and you could level her persona up for battle perks, you could not have her in your battle party.
I REPEAT: THIS IS VERY EXCITING!
Rise is the girl I choose to romance in my final playthrough of Persona (I picked Chie the first time but both girls are great) and I think she's a great emotionally complex character with a lot of flirty spunk. Also, she's downright adorable and a lot of people's waifu so I think fans of the game will be happy.
Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is due out in Fall in North America. No official European release has been announced, so hopefully the game isn't region locked this time round!
