Atlus Announces New Persona Games
Atlus today announced the Persona series is returning to North America with completely new games for this year and beyond.
Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth (Fall 2014)
You got Persona in my Etrian! You got Etrian in my Persona! Well, you’re right on both counts. Persona Q is a cross-over for the Nintendo 3DS that brings Persona 3 and 4 characters to the gameplay style of Etrian Odyssey. It also marks the first time the Persona franchise will be available on a Nintendo system.
Persona 4 Arena Ultimax (Fall 2014)
Arc System Works is bringing the sequel to the tournament fighter Persona 4 Arena to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2014! A few days after the P-1 Grand Prix concludes in the first Arena title, the city of Inaba gets enveloped in a thick red fog and Mitsuru, Akihiko, Fuuka, and Aigis are shown as prisoners on the Midnight Channel. The Investigation Team from Persona 4 and former SEES from Persona 3 must once again fight to their limits in the new P-1 Climax tournament to rescue them and finally uncover the true culprit behind the deadly tournaments.
Persona 4: Dancing All Night (2015)
Funky Student isn’t funky enough to bust a move with Rise and the rest of the Persona 4 crew in Persona 4: Dancing All Night for the PlayStation Vita. The summer following the events in Persona 4 sees Rise return to Inaba after spending the summer back in her old life as an idol. After hearing rumors about the Midnight Stage, she checks a certain website at midnight and sees a mysterious movie clip and, you guessed it, winds up on the “other side.” Worse yet, she finds out her junior idol peers from the group Kanamin Kitchen are missing as well. She has no choice but to send an SOS to the Investigation Team to help rescue the missing idols.
Persona 5 (2015)
This is it. The big one. The latest true continuation of the Persona series will make its debut in North America on the PlayStation 3 in 2015.
