The developer of the popular Persona video game series has released a new teaser which hints that a significant announcement on Persona 5 should arrive on April 25th.
Significant Persona 5 announcement to come later in April
A website is already live, showing a paper piece pinned with a knife. The paper, designed in the style of the critically-acclaimed Persona 5, mentions the date and a cryptic “1 MORE” reference. Within the universe of Persona, this text appears when a character receives a bonus attack. Since the URL address contains the letters ps5 some users believe that a Switch version of the favorite role-playing game could be announced when the date arrives.
Atlus is already working with Nintendo to include Joker, the main protagonist of Persona 5, in Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and the character has been confirmed as a DLC. Nintendo has stated in the past that Joker will be included in the game by the end of April and it is likely that the new character will arrive with 3.0 update.
Persona 5 received positive feedback from the franchise’s fans
The Persona series was released as a spin-off of the popular Shin Megami Tensei franchise which is also published by Atlus. The first game, Revelations: Persona, was released in 1996 for the PlayStation One. The franchise packs several signature features, including a high school setting which showcase a group of students as the protagonists, a silent player character and the unique combat system which uses the titular Personas.
A strong player base has encouraged Atlus to release several video games across a large number of devices, including the entire PS ecosystem, Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and the PC platform. Five main games exist, but some spin-offs are also available, including fighting titles and cross-over games which blend multiple timelines.
Persona 5 was well-received by the fans and Atlus has already teased P5 The Royale, which may infer a that a major patch or a new version of the game will offer the chance to play with a female protagonist.
