- Atlus PR Manager John Hardin
confirmed Persona 5 and more titles are coming for PlayStation 3 in North America with details below.
To quote: I've gotten your emails, your tear-stained letters, your carrier pigeons, and the erstwhile smoke signal. We've read them, and we - finally - can fully and officially reply to them with the best kind of confirmation ever: ATLUS is bringing three new Persona games to the PlayStation family starting in fall of 2014.
"But John," you'll ask, "what are these new Persona games of which you speak?" Well, I'm glad you asked that, illusory writing device! Let's just cut right to the quick. Persona 5 is coming. In 2015. And will be the first Persona RPG developed for the PlayStation 3 system.
That's about all we know about the game, because the plot, characters, and everything about it is being kept under wraps. The one thing we do know is that series director Katsura Hashino hinted that the storyline will be about throwing off the chains of oppression to find one's true self. But how that theme is addressed in Persona 5? We have no idea.
Next up, we have the sequel to Persona 4 Arena ญญ- the hit fighting game for PS3. The number "2″ isn't powerful enough for all the awesome new content in this game, so we're calling it Persona 4 Arena...
