Xbox fans have been mostly ignored by Atlus in this generation. Occasionally they'll throw us a bone like Catherine, but the heavy hitters in Atlus' lineup lately have mostly been PS3 or handheld exclusives. And then they shock everyone by announcing Persona 4: Arena as a multiplatform release. Sure, it is a fighting game rather than a proper RPG, but it gives us hope that maybe Persona 5 will see the light of day on a Microsoft system.
The wait is made a little easier (though it just makes the disappointment more crushing if it doesn't happen ...) because the first taste of Persona for Xbox 360 owners is pretty darn amazing. Persona 4: Arena was developed by fighting game masters Arc System Works and written by the original team behind Persona 4, so you know it just has to be good. Our full review has everything you need to know.
