We've got quite a bit of ArcSystem Works news for all you anime fighter fans out there. First up, it has been officially announced by Atlus USA that Persona 4 Arena: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold will be making it's way stateside later this year. We can expect to see a release on Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 some time this Fall.

The Persona 4 Arena update adds new fighters: Sho Minazuki, Yukari Takeba, Junpei Iori, balance changes, new gameplay mechanics, and more.

Hit the jump to check out the latest trailer, along with the official announcement from Atlus.

Arc System Works is bringing the sequel to the award-winning tournament fighter Persona 4 Arena to the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360® in 2014! A few days after the P-1 Grand Prix concludes in the first Arenatitle, the city of Inaba gets enveloped in a thick red fog and Mitsuru, Akihiko, Fuuka, and Aigis are shown as prisoners on the MidnightChannel. The Investigation Team from Persona 4 and former SEES from Persona 3 must once again fight to their limits in the new P-1 Climax tournament to rescue them and finally uncover the true culprit behind the deadly tournaments.

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax will improve on the award-winning fighting game formula with battle-altering 1-hit special attacks and new characters, including Yukari Takeba and Junpei Iori from Persona 3 and a brand new character, Sho Minazuki. Not a lot is known about Sho other than his goofy nature and being an unstoppable force in both puns and combat. Two swords, two scars on his face, red hair and red mist in Inaba? Surely it can't be coincidence that he's standing in the way of the Investigation Team. And to make matters worse, it seems he can control a Persona...

In other news, a former Dizzy player by the name of Daiji recently visited the Urban Square game center in Japan in order to get some time in with Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-. During this time, Daiji was able to successfully achieve an impressive 30-game win streak using Millia.

Luckily for us, Jourdal captured the footage, and below are the first three parts of Daishi's win streak. Be sure to check out Jourdal's playlist for the remainder of the footage.
Lastly, a bit more footage from the Mikado Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- tournament has hit the internet as of late. Originally broadcast by Nico Nico, this bout features Nemo's Faust going up against FAB's Potemkin.
