Atlus has surely made a lot of people happy today with the announcement of the localization of four games in the Persona series which are coming to the PlayStation family, Xbox 360 and 3DS.
The big one is of course Persona 5, which marks the first Persona RPG developed for the PlayStation 3. We don’t know much about the game at this moment since Atlus is keeping details of it tight to their collective chests. All we know is that it will come out in 2015 and that “the storyline will be about throwing off the chains of oppression to find one’s true self.”
Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is the sequel to Arena and features a new storyline, fighting modes, Persona 3 characters and even a new character to the series, Sho Minazuki. The game is slated to be released on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2014.
Persona 4: Dancing All Night is a rhythm dancing game for the PS Vita which is being made in collaboration with Dingo who are responsible for the Hatsune Miku series. We should see this one in 2015.
Lastly there’s Persona Q: Labyrinth for the 3DS. This game has the gameplay style of Etrian Odyssey and the Persona characters have even been redone in the style of EO. This game will be released in the fall of this year.
That’s pretty much all the info that was given at this time. I’m sure that fans of the series are pleased knowing they will have new Persona games to play soon.
