Jawad Ashraf, from the European PlayStation Store Team, confirmed to Kotaku that Persona 4 Arena had been delisted across Europe on PlayStation 3 as of May 22nd, 2014. Although unsubstantiated, the delisting is likely related to Zen United’s PlayStation-specific publishing rights in the territory.
The Xbox 360 version was available until June 16, 2023, when it was delisted alongside Persona 4 Arena Ultimax as reported on a post on r/p4u on Reddit. The cause for this delisting is unknown.
