Persona 4 Arena European release almost there

Publisher confirms PS3 copies have been received

Zen United has provided an update on the status of the Persona 4 Arena European release.


In a posting on Facebook, the publisher confirmed PlayStation 3 versions of the game have been received and it now awaiting Xbox 360 copies.

"We have now taken delivery of the PS3 EU version of Persona 4 Arena, and we are expecting the Xbox version soon," reads the message.

"Once we have both, the next step will be to submit P4A to Sony and Microsoft. At this stage, we'll be able to estimate a likely release window for you guys - and once it's been approved by both platform holders, we'll be able to give you a realistic street date.

"We will, of course, let you know what stage we are in this process so you can have a clearer idea of when the release date is likely to be. Again, thank you for your patience..."

A game's submission process - where a console manufacturer will test the project for bugs and other such issues - can take a number of weeks before completion.

Persona 4's European release was delayed last year, with processes related to EU localisation issues cited as the cause. Zen has promised fans "will get something nice for the delay".
