AU Shippin’ Out May 6-10: Persona 4 Arena
Atlus' Persona universe gets a makeover in fighting game Persona 4 Arena. Those who prefer more story-aligned experiences may like Telltale Games' The Walking Dead.

Atlus' fighting game Persona 4 Arena will finally be hitting Australian shores this week, nearly nine months after its release in North America.
The game is notably one of the few region-locked games to be released for the PlayStation 3.
It is not the first time that developer Arc System Works has turned another publisher's franchise into a fighting game. The studio also made fighters based on a pair of popular manga/anime series, Fist of the North Star and Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan. However, neither of those games were released in the West.
Despite the game's disc region lock, Persona 4 Arena's online play is global, enabling players across different regions to play against each other. This may assist players who wish to compete at the Evolution Championship Series (EVO) this year, where the game has been added to the competitive line-up for the first time.
After receiving an MA15+ rating from the Australian Classification Board, Telltale Games' episodic adventure series The Walking Dead will be shuffling onto shelves for the 360 this week. PlayStation 3 and PC owners can expect their versions the following week.
Prior to its classification, the game series was obtainable on PC and Mac via digital games retailer Steam or purchased online through Telltale's own site. The retail release of the game compiles all five episodes of the first season of Telltale's The Walking Dead.
