Remember press events for game launches? Thanks to the pandemic, they’ve felt like a long distant memory for us here at Eurogamer. Things started to feel a little more normal last week though as Aoife and I were finally able to head out into the great outdoors in search of a video game related adventure.
Enter Persona 4 Arena ULTIMAX in the red corner, a spin-off beat-em-up game set in the Persona universe and featuring a cast of recognisable characters. Persona 4 Arena ULTIMAX actually first released way back in 2013 but this new version, which launched last week, now brings the game and all of its DLC and updates to PS4, PC and Switch.
During that event, I was busy working up a sweat in the blue corner because, to celebrate the launch of the game, I was thrown into a boxing ring for the very first time, where a duo of professional boxers taught me how to throw a proper punch.
