Atlus is considering rollback netcode for Persona 4 Arena Ultimax

Remastered versions are on the way to current gen.

A recent Famitsu issue on Persona 4 Arena Ultimax included an interview with Atlus’ Kazuhisa Wada, listing new details about the remastered port. But that’s not all: Wada described that his team is considering adding rollback netcode. It’ll help smoothen players’ experience and boost accuracy of inputs in online play.

P4AU is the latest installment in Atlus’ expansive library, projected to launch on current-gen systems. In the previously mentioned interview with Famitsu, according to Ryokutya, Wada revealed that Atlus is now focused on multiplatform releases. After the startling one million units success of Persona 4 Golden on PC back in July 2021, their reach into various markets seems more appetizing:

“[When] we saw Persona on Steam surpassing one million units sold…[we] scaled up the initial flow, which includes platform deployments.”

As an offshoot-of-an-offshootPersona 4 Arena Ultimax stands out as a fighting game that seemed forgotten on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. However, Wada ensured that “the title is currently undergoing final adjustments” for the current-gen. You’ll find almost everything the original had, “from battles, stories, to DLC.”

P4AU will launch on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC on March 17th, 2022. It’ll offer a smooth visual experience with a potential rollback netcode patch at a later date! 

Also, you should watch Persona 4 Arena Ultimax at The Game Awards 2021 if you haven’t already! A few new yet very familiar Persona guests got the limelight at the event.
