Atlus has announced that Arc System Works Persona fighting game, Persona 4 Arena, will be coming to the United States on August 7, 2012. The game will also feature a dual language voice track on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, allowing players to choose the original Japanese voices or the English dub.

"While it remains a feature we are unable to add in every one of our releases due to any number of factors, we are incredibly excited to be able to offer our fans the frequently requested dual language option in as highly anticipated a title as Persona 4 Arena," said Atlus vice president of sales and marketing Tim Pivnicny.

"Persona 4 Arena represents one of the biggest investments in ATLUS history, in addition to one of the most ambitious collaborations with a developer as esteemed as Arc System Works, and as such we have spared no expense in endeavoring to ensure that the final North American release lives up to our proud tradition of quality and to our fans' lofty expectations for us."

Famitsu also reports (translated via Siliconera) that the game will feature paid DLC in the form of additional colors and glasses for the game’s fighters. The retail release will come with eight color variations per character.
