ATLUS has dropped another Persona 4 Arena tutorial video today, this time moving on to more advanced gameplay.
The first featured Teddie (and his somewhat grating English voice) explaining the basics of combat. This time around, we've graduated to Mitsuru Kirijo (dig her sword), who shares her wisdom with a much smoother voice.
For those unaware, Arena actually throws status ailments into the mix, a little something-something borrowed from RPGs. Temporary afflictions include the following:
- Poison: HP slowly decreases
- Panic: Controls are reversed
- Rage: Cannot block
- Shock: Cannot move
- Charm: Opponent steals SP
Check the video for more on this and, well, other gameplay goodies. Be sure to check our E3 interview with ATLUS about Arena (and other upcoming titles), while you're here.

Developed in collaboration with Arc System Works, Persona 4 Arena will be arriving for Xbox 360 and PS3 on August 7. Reserving the game from certain retailers will earn you a bonus "Arranged Soundtrack" CD.
