Like a busy little bee, Atlus has been at serious work with the next offerings from with-in their popular Persona realm. With recently, the Japanese gaming publisher just unveiling 2 such titles coming to the PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3 for 2012.

The first of which is a marvelous-looking port of the awesome Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 for the PlayStation Vita, launching sometime around next Spring 2012, and presumably, near Sony’s next-handheld retail debut in North America and Europe. We hope, of course.

This version, entitled Persona 4 The Golden (yeah I don’t know either,) of the critically high-marked role-playing game on the PlayStation 2 will include in one new shiny PlayStation Vita package:

  • A new character named Mary
  • 1.5 times the voice (acting) of the original PlayStation 2 version
  • Wireless distress signal support, so that other (online) gamers can help you out when you’re about to die in a dungeon
  • New elements that fans of the PS2 version requested
  • New opening animation sequence with a new song from Shouji Meguro (fantastic videogame composer for the Megami Tensei series)
  • New animation movies

Okay. I’m not entirely sure what to make of Atlus’s next reveal, but drat if it don’t look pretty. It’s a fighting game, obviously, but it’s a fighting game using the characters from both Persona 4 and 3, called Persona 4 The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena (coming to Japanese arcades in Spring 2012 & Summer 2012 for PlayStation 3 & Xbox 360.)

But get this — it’s being made by the one and only Arc System Works, of Guilty Gear series & Hard Corps: Uprising fame. Who’s knack of making stellar 2D animation & solid like-a-rock fighting games has earned the Yokohama, Japan based developer major gaming cred around the industry.

As for Persona 4 The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena, the fighter is set two months after the events of the PS2 game and will have the gang of familiar-summoning teenagers Kung-Fu fighting, fast as lightning. Exactly how though, is still information that Atlus will be telling at a later date — heck, if it’s anything like JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure the video game from Capcom (and from images it almost screams it), do want.
