Atlus: Persona 5 to be released not after 2022


In a recent statement, Atlus promised that the highly anticipated RPG Persona 5 would not be delayed beyond the end of 2022.

“We’re trying to give the fans the kind of quality game that they’re expecting,” the company stated in a press release.  “We know a lot of people are looking forward to Persona 5, and we don’t want to disappoint them with a subpar game.”

Game director Katsura Hashino recently announced that the new Persona title would feature a cast of high school students being haunted by a series of strange occurrences.  “We’re really excited about this,” Hashino said in an interview.  “It’s a totally new direction for the series, if you don’t count Persona 4, Persona 3, Persona 2, or Persona.”

In the meantime, an Atlus spokesman noted, fans can look forward to the following upcoming Persona games with fixed release dates in 2015 and 2016:

Persona 4: Cooking All Day

Akihiko Sanada: Boxing Legend

Persona 4 Absolute Arena Platinum Ultimate

Fire Persona X (a crossover of Persona 3/4, Fire Emblem, and Final Fantasy X)

Dojima and Adachi’s Drunk Karaoke Challenge

    • Honestly, I wouldn’t either, just to see how the hell they would manage a crossover like that. I’d like to play SMT x Fire Emblem, but I don’t have a Wii U and I have no money to buy one.
