There are many rumours going around regarding the release date of Persona 4 Arena in Europe. Most retailers have it listed for September 14th, This is INCORRECT.
After several email/tweet conversations with Amazon, Shopto, Zavvi, Pqube, and Zen United, we are fairly certain that the following is true.
Most online retailers believe they are going to be in possession of the game by the 14th of September (Shopto 21st of September). When we asked them to elaborate on this, they stated that "this is the most up to date information that has been received from the publisher".
When Zen United were questioned, they stated that "we are still waiting for a release timing from Atlus"
I think we can all agree that releasing Persona 4 Arena in September is probably a bad move. This is due to Dead or Alive 5 and Tekken Tag 2. If they are waiting for a timed release, how about anywhere in October? This would make sense as fans would get it in the near future and it would avoid the rush of games that are scheduled to be released in November/December.
One thing is for sure. Anyone who has preordered this title and expect to receive it this week, do not be surprised when you get an email from your online retailer stating that the release date has been pushed back once again.
