Ultra Suplex Hold adds Junpei Iori and Yukari Takeba from Persona 3, as well as red-haired, sword-wielding fella by the name of Sho Minazuki, an original character not form any previous Persona releases. Currently, Ultra Suplex Hold is only coming to Japanese arcades. But considering how Persona 4 Arena found its way to Xbox 360 and PS3, a console version of the update/sequel seems inevitable.

In addition to Arena-related news, Atlus teasing a Persona-related announcement via a teaser site containing the date November 25, 2013. Persona 5 is known to be in development, confirmed in August 2011. The fifth Persona is rumored to be a PS3 title.

Persona 4 Arena debuted on PS3 and Xbox 360 August 7, 2012 in North America.
