Atlus is still working on PS3 with Persona 5, while keeping the game firmly under wraps, but the developer is looking at the new generation, as mentioned by the company’s President and CEO Sugino-san
I love that they're looking at consoles. But, I hope they branch out from Persona/SMT more (new IPs).
I thought Caherine was really good. But the they pretty much abandoned the mainline SMT games. It the style, direction of the games, hell, even the character portraits changed from being cool-gritty realistic look to just another anime like game where friendship rules. Dnt get me wrong, i love Persona4, its excellent, but i prefer something in the lines of Digital Devil Saga and Persona 2
They can start by bring Arena and Persona 5 to ps4...:( Also Persona Q to Vita...I don't see why divide up the games like this where you have to buy like 3+ consoles to experience the series of games
I don't think Persona Q would work on the Vita. It's basically an Etrian Odyssey game with Persona skin and you have to draw out your map on the bottom screen as you go through the dungeons. I don't see how that would work on a single screen device unless they intend to have you constantly pausing your game to draw your map, which would be annoying. I would prefer an Arena port or Persona 5 Portable.
OK I can more than accept that, frankly I'd prefer that. I just mention Persona Q because it seemed like an easier transition from portable to portable:)
Great news, Atlus games are awesome, can't wait for Persona 5.
Ya pretty much holding onto my PS3 for Tales of xillia 2 and Persona 5. Other than that been busy on ps4 and going to get busier.
I regret donating my ps3 sometimes:( only because I want to play MGS 4, Journey and Persona 5. So I'm hoping to get one when it's 100$ or cheaper or just use PS Now if they have subscriptions...(I'm not paying for 4h of gameplay...a ridiculous amount).
Can't wait, I love these devs!
Persona 5 must come to ps4.
What's wrong with them spinning off a few small games on mobile for a few extra bucks? Good goodness! Making great games isn't a hobby for devs. It's how they make a living, so can they live?!
They've already made mobile games. They just never see the light of day outside of Japan. Mobile gaming doesn't work for everyone. Atlus' core audience is on consoles and dedicated handhelds, it's where they make the bulk of their money. This is how they make a living.
Ok... But who are you to tell them they shouldn't try it again if they chose to?
Persona 5 needs to be on PS4 then. No excuses.
I want a main line SMT game on consoles.
Well, guess what? Persona 5 will be on the PS4 in the form of an enhanced version just like every single Persona game before on their respective platforms. It'll happen, but knowing Atlus... it'll be quite a while.
