Persona 3 Remake is highly likely to be the last announcement or 2nd last. This was posted today and today is Persona 3's 15th Anniversary. ATLUS WEST have also said to look forward to it, so it'll be pretty big.

Do we get FES and Portable?

Honestly, Persona 3 killed the series for me and I only focused on SMT ever since. But I'll keep an eye on what they choose to do with the first two game's characters.. assuming it's not a dancing/rhythm spinoff.

I said this before, as much as I enjoyed Hashino's Persona series I think new team needs to shake up the formula like Hashino did with Persona 3.

they aint changing the formula. persona 5 was a huge success.

I also agree that it's time to switch things up. Yes, I get it, the modern Persona games are incredible. I love them to death. But I don't want to see a million sequels trying to relive Persona 4.

The same way that Persona 3 tried something drastically new and is the reason why the Persona series is booming right now, they need to do something different with Persona 6 and evolve the series further. If it doesn't work, they can always just go back to the P3-5 formula with P7.

My guess is

Strikers version for P3 and P4 just like how they milked the Dancing games.
P5 Arena
Persona 6
Possibly a mobile game that features more in line with Persona rather than SMT since they already have SMT mobile.
P1-P3 remakes.

That’s about all I can think of.

Hoping for a P4G port and a P3 remake for Switch. A teaser for P6 would be great too.
Is Project Re: Fantasy considered part of the Persona line-up?

SEVEN? Fucking hell give this IP a break.
Do you know how slow mainline game releases are...
Persona 3 - 2006
Persona 4 - 2008
Persona 5 - 2016
Persona 6 - almost 5 years and counting

spin-offs and updated releases are like the only thing keeping it in public eye.

Its not about that, same way Persona 1&2 creators moved from the series, Hashino also moved from Persona and created his own studio.

Its good idea for the new team to established their own take instead of chasing Hashino's formula.

i get it but i think they'd be stupid to ditch the current formula when it sells so well. by all means try new things but don't shake it up too much. leave that for spin offs if they want to experiment.

It's one of the most oversaturated JRPG brands and a spin off of an actual series so. 👀

The fans won't let it die, don't worry about that.

just discovered this. i don't mean it's new...it's been known for a while now but this could be one of the teased projects. definitely looks and sounds like a Persona game. apparently it's a mobile game.

leaked trailer:

For everyone saying one of the projects might be a mobile game, one technically already exists, it’s just under the SMT label. Not saying they won’t launch another mobile game, but I’m just putting that out there. Just in case someone one didn’t know.

apparently Persona 6 not in development yet but certainly will be developed in future.

"Thanks to the large amount of support we received for Persona 5, we have gotten a sense of accomplishment. But we can’t stop there. When we created Persona 4, there was pressure that it had to exceed Persona 3. Now, we will have to create a 6 which exceeds 5,
However, exceeding 5 will be difficult with the current staff. I would like to surpass this tall hurdle with everyone who joins us in this recruitment. The workplace is perfect for those who want a creative challenge when it comes to bringing games to the world." - Atlus director Naoto Hiraoka

sounds like they gonna expand the team first.

also Katsura Hashino might not involved with next persona anymore as he and other key staff formed another team for Project Re:Fantasy that announced 2017.

They need to shake the formula - school sim is nice but we had it now for P3, P4, P5, time to try and move on. I would really like Persona 5 on Switch though, only way for me to finish it.

I just want Persona 3 Fes & 4 Golden in HD on PS4/5
A Remake would be nice to bring them in line with P5, but I'd settle for a remaster
