The popular series Persona is about to celebrate its 25 years of existence next September.
Atlus is preparing for this event with what will be a series of announcements for the future of the brand, leaving fans speculating on what is to come. Be it a sequel or another kind of release, it’s all a coin toss.
The only details that are known so far are the potential number of announcements that will be given on the anniversary. According to your official portal
After spanning multiple generations of consoles with the Megami Tensei spinoff series, her narrative style that mixes elements from JRPGs, anime, and dating simulators became popular with millions of gamers. This popularity facilitated its official premieres in the West, but the companies are looking to take a more ambitious step.
As we discussed previously, Atlus explores the idea of simultaneous premieres of the series’ games in Japan and the West, considering that by waiting for differentiated premieres, much of the interest generated by the game is lost. This was the case for Strikers, which for numerous reasons, including the pandemic, was delayed for more than a year.
What is coming on the horizon may be a sequel that marks the path of the series to the new generation of consoles, as well as a potential return to the world of anime, as happened in the past with the premiere of its fifth edition.
One thing is for sure: Atlus’ golden goose will continue to grow, and its priority treatment by Sega’s subsidiary distributor is critical to everyone involved. So surely, we will have much more Person for the next few years, even being able to go up to another 25 years.
