PlayStation Exclusive Persona 5 Is in Intensive Development in a “Crucial” Stage; News Coming After the New Year

I’m sure I’m not the only one eagerly awaiting for new info on the upcoming JRPG Persona 5, that should be released sometime this year. Director and Producer Katsura Hashino gave us a better idea of what we can expect on Famitsu.

We’re aware of the expectations from many people for Persona 5, It’s currently in intensive development. We’re working hard with all the staff to make it better, this is what you’d call a crucial stage.

After the new year, with appropriate timing, we want to reveal the contents [of the game], please look forward to it.

Personally, Persona 5 (pun entirely unintended) is one of my most anticipated games of this year. I got Persona 4 on PS2, double dipped on PS Vita, and would happily triple dip on a Persona 4 Platinum on PS4 (not that it’s going to happen, but a man can dream). Hopefully we’ll hear more about it, and its localization, soon.
