Persona 4 Arena region-locked on PS3
The PS3 version of Persona 4 Arena will be the system's first region-locked game.
An Atlus staff member confirmed the news on their official forums.
"The PS3 version will be region-locked," the representative wrote. "To reiterate, [the North American] version of the game works for the North and South American regions.
"Also, keep in mind that both the NA and JP versions have both English and Japanese text and voice options, making them nearly identical. I'm unsure of what the case will be for the EU version."
Many fans on the forums reacted negatively to the news, fearing another Catherine delay — that game took an extra six months to reach North America and seven more to hit Europe.
"It is always our intention to release as close to the US date as is humanly possible," Geraint Evans, director of Zen Unlimited, told Edge in regards to the European version of Persona 4 Arena. "We don't have an official date to confirm at this moment, but we hope to be able to do that soon, and we appreciate people's patience in the meantime."
