Director Kazuhisa Wada gives answers for a Q&A relating to Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, with the game launching this Thursday. He confirms that the game will be region free and with dual audio, among other things.
Q: What are the benefits of the downloadable version of the game?
Answer: The downloadable version of the game will unfortunately not have the DLC that comes with the DLC card in the package version, however that the DL version has the PSN promotion.
If you want the Adachi DLC, I recommend the purchase of the package version of the game for the first-print bonus.
Q: About the same DLC in this game that was in the previous Persona 4 Arena…
Answer: The DLC that a player obtained in Persona 4 Arena will be able to be transferred over and used in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax. For example, a player who had the Nanako navigator, Fuuka navigator and alternate color DLC will be able to use it for free in P4AU.
Q: How does switching the game’s language work?
Answer: This time, the game can only be switched to English language for the audio. The previous game could also be switched to English text, however this time there is a limit because the game is region free.
The Q&A also reveals a Shadow version of the game’s box art, which will be available in upcoming promotional campaigns.
