Famitsu confirms Rise Kujikawa as playable in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax

It had been rumored early last week that two new fighters may be entering the Persona 4 Arena Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold (or Persona 4 Arena Ultimax for short) battle. This morning, a partial glimpse at a scan from Famtisu's upcoming issue confirms that one of those characters will indeed be playable in-game.

Rise Kujkawa from Persona 4 has been added to the roster, as seen on the scan below. Because this image is so heavily blacked out, it appears that more Persona 4 Arena Ultimax news may be coming very soon.

Perhaps we'll be seeing a confirmation of the other rumored character: Ken Amada from Persona 3, later this week. Until then, check out the scan below, and let us know what you think about the inclusion of Rise in the upcoming Persona 4 Arena sequel.
