A Persona fighting game? It's really happening, thanks to the people at Atlus and BlazBlue creators Arc System Works. This is what it looks like—lovely!—and this is who will be beating each other up in Persona 4 The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena.

The Persona fighting game, coming first to arcades later this year, then to consoles, will pit characters from Persona 3 and Persona 4 in mortal combat, known as the "P-1 Grand Prix" in-game. See first screen shots in the gallery above, with additional character art at Famitsu.
