Persona 4 Arena Director Says He Wants to Make "Persona 5 Arena"

First released in 2008, Persona 4 was one of the most highly acclaimed JRPGs in recent times. The title spawned an excellent "Golden" remake on PS Vita, a dance / rhythm game, and as you probably know... a proper fighting game series. With Persona 5 now out in Japan (and on the horizon for North America & Europe), one would expect a similar level of success for Atlus's new installment. With that said, Persona 4 Arena director Kazuhisa Wada has already expressed interest in making a "Persona 5 Arena" fighting game spin-off.

"It's not a matter of the technology for getting the PS4/XB1/PC players to match up against each other"...

Street Fighter V Update for PC Version Pulled Due to Malware Vulnerability

On Thursday, SFV's update on PS4 went smoothly, but the PC version's patch actually made participating PC players vulnerable to Malware. Uhh oh. The update included a "secret rootkit" giving any installed application kernel-level privileges, opening the door for malicious software. Capcom stated they used the driver to stop PC players from hacking and cheating, but the poorly-written code actually opens up a local backdoor.
