Atlus has ended their epic Persona stream, and Atlus has confirmed four Persona games on the way, with Japanese release dates. Sorry, nothing confirmed for US yet – and nothing for the newly launched next gen consoles. We’re sharing descriptions and trailers below.
Persona 5 is the big one, and it is coming exclusive, once again, to Playstation 3. Headed by series showrunner Katsura Hashino, and what seems to be the newly rebranded P-Studio, the game has a tentative release date of Winter 2014.
Also exclusive to Playstation 3 and previously announced is Persona 4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold. We have already covered this one extensively at first reveal. The game has already been confirmed for arcades, but now, we know that it is also coming to the console next summer.
Speaking of Persona 3 – Persona 4 crossovers, Atlus has finally confirmed the Persona game slated for the 3DS. Originally announced at the 3DS launch, Persona Q: Shadow of The Labyrinth will have you playing characters from both games, rendered in a chibi style, in an epic crossover RPG of its own. Directing the game is Daisuke Kaneda, who’s had years of experience on the console with the Etrian Odyssey series. This is the first Persona game to be hitting any Nintendo console.
Finally, Vita is also getting a Persona 4 spinoff game, coproduced by Dingo, makers of the Hatsune Miku: Project Diva series. Persona 4: Dancing All Night will have you playing Rise Kujikawa, Teddie, and others dancing their way to a direct Persona 4 sequel. This one is also getting a full story, so don’t fret, nothing on the plate is fully casual. Persona 4: Dancing All Night is coming Fall 2014.
