Yep, that’s right, while you were sleeping Persona’s developer ATLUS announced four new games for the franchise! Starting with the long waited next installment of the main series Persona 5, to be released on PlayStation 3 next winter (so far) in Japan only. Here’s the very first teaser trailer.
The second title announced is not something we were expecting, in fact is a J-RPG for Nintendo 3DS, called Persona Q: Shadow Of The Labyrinth, with chibi (“little” in Japanese) characters taken from both Persona 4 and Persona 5. Also this one is a Japanese exclusive for now, and it’s gonna be released on June 5, 2014. Here’s the trailer.
Let’s carry on with the third title. This one is not directly developed by ATLUS, but by DINGO, and it’s a music game on PlayStation Vita. Yes, a music game based on Persona 4, called Persona Dancing All Night. Well, we don’t know if it’s gonna work or not, but for now is slated for fall 2014, guess what…Japan only. Here’s the trailer.
The last one (finally) is simply Persona 4 The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold, fighting game currently on arcades only, being ported for PlayStation 3 as this tweet can prove.

Also this one is set to be released next summer and in Japan only. Here’s the two PVs released so far.
So, as you can see, ATLUS, dispite now being part of SEGA Corporation, is well active and healty. Let’s just hope all these games gonna see the light of the day in western countries. Stay tuned!
