Last week, Japanese game mag Famitsu gave us our first look at an unexpected new fighting game—Persona 4: The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena. Based on Atlus' role-playing game series, the arcade fighter plucks characters from Persona 3 and Persona 4 for 2D fighting fun.

Now, thanks to Atlus and developer Arc System Works (BlazBlue, Guilty Gear), we have more screens, this time much larger, much prettier and full of the lovely Chie Satonaka. There's tons of artwork here too, plus a little bonus Engrish if you're not so much a Persona fan, but a fan of Japanese developers putting the words "Free Pray" and "Color Priset" in their screen shots.

Persona 4: The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena hits Japanese arcades early next year, with versions for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 planned for summer 2012. It will be playable at Tokyo Game Show next week.
