Receiving the “Partner Award” for Persona 5 Royal during today’s “PlayStation Awards 2020 Japan Asia” annual award show, Atlus’ P Studio development team sent a message of thanks and celebration.
Starting the video message off is the Persona Team producer and director Kazuhisa Wada. After discussing his happiness for Persona 5 having received a PlayStation Award for five consecutive years, he mentions the following:

As next year is the 25th anniversary of the Persona series, we have many exciting plans which we hope you will all enjoy.

Wada had made a similar mention in December 2019, when he stated that the team was carefully planning steps to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Persona in 2021.

Given the trend with P5 Royal and Strikers I suppose this means Western fans should get excited for 2022...

Another day, another Persona thread from me. Still haven't played Persona 5?




It's not too late to steal a heart. Take your time, and head over the PlayStation Store.

I'm waiting on that PS5 patch, should come right after the PS4 Pro patch, right? RIGHT?!??

Maybe PC release next year hopefully.

Big plans will hopefully mean more PC releases since they were so surprised with how good P4G did on steam.

I might be a little bit biased here, but Persona 5 has been one of the few games I dont mind playing at 30 fps.

But yeah, a PC port would be awesome. Specially if they can mod in a harder difficulty mode, which could be the perfect excuse for yet another plythrough. :messenger_grinning_sweat:

Nice, what could it be?

I'm not much into the Persona spin-offs so here's hoping for at least a tease for Persona 6.

Or maybe a remake of 1, 2 or 3? Atlus kinda did that for SMT: Strange Journey on their 25th aniversary.

What to expect:
Persona 3 FES+ PS4/Switch/PC
Persona 4 Golden PS4/Switch
Persona 5 Royal Switch

What you'll get:
Persona 5 Dancing 2
Persona 5 Arena

Damn, I knew what was in the spoilers before opening them. :messenger_tears_of_joy:

Atlus sure likes to milk their cows but come one, after the success of P4 on PC I'm expecting some kind of definitive version of P3 in the near future.

I want to believe okay ;_;

There is no goddamn way Persona is 25 years old.

What. The. Fuck.

Kind of amazing how much the series changed over time, if nothing else. First game was complete garbage, second game(s) was rad... but I'm definitely a fan of the modern style.

Its not the framerate actually ma pal Tinto, its the aliasing. I really love the art in that game but I get taken out of it when I see a crusty edge, its cause I'm playing on a giant screen probably. I know I should just bite the crusty-Big-bang-burger and let the juices of excellent character writing run down my chin...

Side note - everytime I see your name it makes me think of Tinto Brass and I have a wee chuckle, thanks for that:

I get ya. I played it on a 40" TV and didn't noticed much of aliasing (or didn't care ^^u) but if it's a problem for you then yeah, you really should hold on and wait because the art of P5 truly deserves to be enjoyed in the best way possible.

And dude, thanks for that spoiler. Today you gave me a wee chuckle too. :')

My prediction: Persona 3 FES + Persona 4 Golden PS4 remaster combo pack releasing sometime next year and a Persona 1 remake announced or Persona 6 announced.

I could see P4Golden getting a direct port on PS4 and maybe Switch (PC version w/ dual audio). P3 was mentioned by one of the first people to "leak" the P4G PC release by finding the Denuvo/Steam pages. Not sure that there is any truth to it and I'm sure we'd end up with P3Portable rather than FES w/ all of the portable enhancements.

Inb4 Phil Spencer acquires Sega & Atlus, alters plans like Darth Vader, and uses an Xbox Death Star to blow away an entire planet of weeaboos.

I won't accept P3 Portable if it doesn't have full character movement like the PS2 versions.

I still haven't managed to find time to play all of the recent games like Q2, Royal and Persona 4 Golden on PC, but more are always welcomed. Quite excited for P5 Strikers release nontheless.

Remakes of P1 and IS/EP would be nice, but it'd be nice if they included the originals with them, if only out of convenience.
They have the PSP remakes ready to port. 2/3 are already in English.
I'm having a blast with P5R since I didn't finished the vanilla version. Got the Steel book edition and will take my sweet time enjoying this masterpiece
Glad you're enjoying it. If I can offer one piece of advice: Make sure to max out your confidant with the new characters

I understand. Ideally they would add the new elements from Portable into FES but I would expect them to just choose one or the other rather than putting in that much work on such an old game.

Thanks for the advice! I will keep that in mind.

Agreed. Sega does many ports, so expect the rest of the series ported on PC. I'm even more curious on why the whole series hasn't been ported to PS4.
We got Persona 4 on Steam, and there are rumors about Nocturne coming to Steam too so its possible we will get some other stuff. I wouldn't mind getting the entire Persona and SMT series on Steam.
I don't think Atlus knows what a PS4 is so maybe thats why they didn't port the series.

Better not be a fucking Persona dance game!
But those are the best Persona games.

Well that would be up to Sega, Sega owns Atlus. I'd say the games being ported to many systems has more to do with that as Atlus rarely did that when they where independent. So I don't know why Sega is going that route of not porting 3 and 4, maybe its because they are internally porting other titles already. I think over time you'll see Persona 3 and 4 get ported on PS4/PS5.

CharlieTuna CharlieTuna I think if any Persona will be remade, it will very likely be Persona 1, remade to be like the 3 and 4. You'll probably see remasters of Persona 3 and 4. So I think Sega will do it like they did Yakuza. Remake 1 and 2, remasters 3 and 4

Wishlist:
-Full remakes of the P2 Duology. Preferably given the full remake treatment with 3d environments and voice acting
-A Persona 6 tease similar to the shibuya trailer we got for P5.
-Confirmation of P5 Arena complete with aged up P4 crew a la the P3 crew in Ultimax.
-An ultimate version of P3 with the battle improvements and FeMC of Portable and the expanded content of FES.

What's actually likely:
-Confirmation ArcSys is working on P5 Arena with a title card reveal.
-A Presona 6 tease that conveys the theme similar to the P5 chair teaser.
-An announcement of a PC release of P3 FES.

Meme tier garbage:
Persona Kart

After how the PSP releases of P1 and P2 and how awful Atlus USA is these days I'm not sure I have any interest in them touching those games despite how amazing P1 and P2:EP are.
