If you're an Atlus fan, prepare for not just one, but three new game announcements for North America!
The publisher has revealed that Persona 5 will release in North America some time in 2015 for the PlayStation 3.
The game was initially announced last November but at the time, it was only confirmed for Japan. For the record, this fifth entry is the first in the long-running franchise that was developed specifically for the PS3.
We have no more details at this time, besides what series director Katsura Hashino said about the plot (as relayed by Atlus PR Manager John Hardin): It's about "throwing off the chains of oppression to find one's true self." Well, that relates to this very red – and very mysterious – image, wouldn't you say? This is only one game, though; as I said above, there are three new titles to look forward to.
Another is the sequel to Persona 4 Arena , which will be called Persona 4 Arena Ultimax . This will come to the PS3 in fall 2014, and it boasts a new story mode that picks up where the original plot left off. We'll also get new fighting modes and a few new characters. Lastly, there's Persona 4: Dancing All Night , which is coming to the PlayStation Vita in the US some time next year. The game features 30 tracks/remixes, and the project is being developed in collaboration with Dingo ( Hatsune Miku: Project Diva ).
Is that enough Japanese culture for ya?
