To celebrate the game’s launch, Atlus is hosting the Persona 4 Arena Ultimax Charity Sho-down, a $20,000 charity event featuring many historic fighting game players and content creators from P4A and other Arc System Works titles, such as Lord Knight, Grover, and BananaKen.
The event, which will be streamed live from a studio in New York on March 18, will see a total of eight players competing against each other in a standard top-eight bracket. Each player has selected and is representing a charity of their choice, and all of them will receive a minimum of $1,000 to donate to their chosen cause for participating in the event.
The player who finishes first will have a $10,000 donation made to the charity of their choice, while the runner-up will earn $5,000 for their charity. This makes for a total donation of $20,000 to a variety of causes from Atlus.
Here’s a full list of the competitors and their selected charities:
- BrkrDave – Alzheimer’s Association
- BananaKen – Dysautonomia International
- TectalEastside – American Cancer Society
- Grover – Save the Children, Bolivia
- Jona – Organization for Autism Research
- SQ – The Trevor Project
- Doonpa – ALS Association
- Lord Knight – Climate Reality Project
The action begins on March 18 at 4pm CT on the Atlus West Twitch channel.
