Now that is some awesome news! It's a shame this news didn't hit about a year or so ago. It's been far too long, we should be near or hearing about Persona 6 by now.

Still super excited though!

OMG OMG OMG!!!Best news so far! One of my MOST anticipated games ever

I'd probably kill a man for Persona 5 at this point (preferably a horrible criminal of some type). This is actually disappointing though if all that has happened with the game is some sketches. Is it even going to be this gen?
Lovable  +   1280d ago
Persona 4 came out at the very end of the PS2 era so chances are they will push it to release this gen and do the same thing...

Catherine's engine was pretty much a test run for P5 . I wouldnt worry too much about them getting the game out there quickly enough once started

Instead of killing someone, how about running into a crowded area and shooting yourself in the head with a gun full of blanks and yell "Persona!" That would show true dedication. =P

Apart from Dark Cloud 3, this was probably my most anticipated announcement (aside from some much less likely releases).

I like that idea. Maybe I could even convince someone to dress up with me and be my summoned persona....

Would love to get a Persona 5 game, I actually wish they would have worked on this instead of Arena.

Please let this happen.

They didnt work on P4A arena much ... it was an arcsys developped game .

Drafting a script and some guideline couldnt in any way prevent work or be detrimental to P5 .

Good to know,

But still I wish this was worked on and released way earlier than getting news this late in this gen's life cycle.

I know Persona 4 Arena also released on the Xbox 360, but why does this have an Xbox 360 tag? Arc System developed Arena, not the Persona team. Plus, there are no main Persona games on the 360 either.
Baka-akaB  +   1280d ago
Has been pretty much established that the next persona game will be multiplatform . And well there is P4A wich is part of the canon now .

Please Atlus let it stay Exclusive on the PS3 .. Take your convenience only on Blu-ray Disc and put anything extra you wanted all what we want is the full game with extra stuff that we love ~

Another reason why making large memory games for the 360 is that if the game requires a 3rd disc or more, the cost comes out of the publisher's pocket. The 2nd disc is paid for by MS.

So developers have to limit the size and content for the sake of the 360.

For the PS3 on the other hand, memory per disc isn't an issue.

What about P4G for Europe? Come on Atlus,at least pretend you care about us.
HarvesterOSarow  +   1279d ago
Excited. Can't wait to pick up P4Golden.

It will be definitely tough to top Persona 3 & 4 so i hope they use all the resources available to make the best game in the series possible.

As people can tell by my avatar i am a huge fan of the series & i want the best experience ever in the next installment of the series is my wish. Make it great Atlus!!
