Persona 4 Arena is a fighting game made by the team who worked on the Guilty Gear and BlazBlue series. It later got a sequel named Persona 4 Arena Ultimax.

Notable for being one of only two region-locked games on PS3 (the other being Way of the Samurai 3), which didn't exactly go over well when combined with an extremely delayed European/Australian release.

Unused Stages

To do:
Use screenshots/footage from Persona 4 Arena, possibly from arcade build for easier use.

Unused Audio

To do:
Rip the remaining unused character voice clips.


To do:
There's more.

Present in the Gallery Mode of the game are unused audio clips for the announcer.

Speech Sound Effect Description
"Yu Narukami"
Announcer saying the full names of some of the cast. This was likely intended for the character select screen, as ArcSystemWorks other series such as Blazblue have the announcer call the characters by their full name. However they go unused and the individual characters instead talk.
"Yosuke Hanamura"
"Chie Satonaka"
"Yukiko Amagi"
"Kanji Tatsumi"
"Naoto Shirogane"
"Mitsuru Kirijo"
"Akihiko Sanada"

The announcer also has alternate names for each character as well.

Speech Sound Effect Description
Alternate takes for characters with one name, also likely intended for the character select screen. Aigis has two alternate names, referring by her English and Japanese names, while Teddie only refers to his Japanese name.
