[Update: Chariot also available for Xbox One, free for XBL Gold members]

Persona fans and fighting game players, rejoice! Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, Atlus’ Arc System Works-developed Persona themed fighter, is now available for the Xbox 360.

We doubt you forgot that Forza Horizon 2 launched on Tuesday for both the Xbox One and Xbox 360 in a few different flavors.  I think we may have liked the game a little bit (our review here). The next Sherlock Holmes title, Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments, launched earlier this week as well for both Xbox platforms as well.

The latest batch of Deals with Gold content is up as well, so make sure to check out the full list of discounts here.

If only his majesty would keep quiet? The chariot?s large wheels and long tethers allow the heroes to reach higher ground, swing across chasms and perform all sorts of impressive maneuvers. Extract riches from the very walls of the caves in multiple environments, and make your way to the exit by avoiding ? or beating back ? greedy looters as they attempt to steal your hard-earned loot!
