An update by Zen United on the Persona Europe Facebook page has suggested a Persona 4 Arena European release is nearing.

The company confirmed it has received the PlayStation 3 European version of the game, and is avidly awaiting the Xbox 360 equivalent. Once both have arrived, it seems we’ll get details on Persona 4’s long-awaited appearance.

“At this stage, we’ll be able to estimate a likely release window for you guys – and once it’s been approved by both platform holders, we’ll be able to give you a realistic street date,” commented Zen.

“We will, of course, let you know what stage we are in this process so you can have a clearer idea of when the release date is likely to be.

“Again, thank you for your patience…”

Many fans have been left frustrated with the game’s European delay. Atlus’ decision to region-lock the Japanese version ensured importing the title was a dud idea. With this subtle announcement, hopefully it is finally heading towards European shores.
