Fighting game Persona 4 Arena has been delayed in Europe.

EU publisher Zen United confirmed the news this afternoon. The game was due out on these shores Friday next week.

Why has it been delayed? Zen United was vague in its explanation.

"There are currently a number of issues surrounding development and subsequent release of Persona 4 Arena in Europe," Zen United said on the Persona Europe Facebook page.

"As we are not directly involved in the development process for P4A, these are elements which are beyond our control.

"We are however, doing everything we can to help resolve this, so that we can get the game into stores and, crucially, into your hands as quickly as possible.

"We do understand your frustration and a need for a concrete release date, however, until we can ascertain exactly what that release period will be we are hesitant to do so. We would rather have all the facts about release to hand, and all issues be resolved, before making such an announcement."

Zen United will announce the release date on the Persona Europe Facebook page, it said.

"Please also be aware, any events that are taking place around Europe will not disrupt the process of releasing them game. Given that these issues have arisen, the team here are making a concerted effort to support the community by having payable builds at your events while you await release. I know many of you are eager to play P4A, and we will facilitate that as best we can in the interim.

"As ever, your patience and understanding is appreciated."
