In celebration of Persona 4 Arena Ultimax’s entry into the prestigious EVO fighting game tournament, Atlus has added $10,000 dollars to the event’s already impressive prize pool. In addition to all of that cold hard cash, Atlus will also be bringing some of its other hit titles along for the ride. Including demos of the upcoming Persona 4: Dancing All Night and competitive rounds of their hit puzzle game Catherine.
As for why the company is bringing a demo of a rhythm game to one of the world’s biggest fighting game events, Atlus stated in a recent press release that Dancing All Night requires the same sort of quick wits and fast moves that fighting games often require and would go on to state that the game would be a good way for players to wind down between rounds of intense one-on-one combat.
EVO, which runs from July 17-19th in Las Vegas, Nevada, will feature some of gaming’s best fighting games, including the likes of Ultra Street Fighter IV, Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, Guilty Gear Xrd: SIGN, Killer Instinct, Mortal Kombat X, Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, Super Smash Bros. 4 for Wii U and Melee, and Tekken 7. EVO is open to all comers and will offer players and spectators alike the chance to see some of the world’s best duke it out for cash and prizes.
