The Tokyo Game Show (TGS) always has surprises and reveals for a variety of games, but this year it seems Atlus and Persona are gearing up for something big.
The Persona Channel website has given details about the “Atlus Presents: Persona Special Stage” event. “Persona Special Stage” will take place on September 19th at 14:30 (10:30 PM PDT/1:30 AM EDT). This special event will feature live performances from artists that might be familiar to Persona Fans. The list includes Lotus Juice, the rapper behind multiple song in Persona 3, and Shihoko Hirarata, the vocalist behind majority of Persona 4’s soundtrack including its opening.
Clearly a live concert is celebrating the release of Persona: Dancing All Night, but it would also likely be a great opportunity for Atlus to reveal an official release date for Persona 5, which so far has only been confirmed for 2015 at E3 2015, or maybe even a new trailer! Atlus has yet to confirm any of this, but it is very likely they are keeping news under wraps for a big surprise.
Persona 5 wasn’t shown off that much at E3 2015, however, Atlus did set up an English Persona 5 webpage. The lack of information might be disheartening to some Persona fans, but my money’s on Atlus showing off Persona 5 when they are ready and this seems like an event that would be the perfect timing to show off what they’ve been working on.
For fans who need their Persona fix, Persona 4: Dancing All Night will be hitting shelves on September 29th on the PS Vita. Let’s all cross our fingers that Atlus is planning to dazzle us with more amazing gameplay and a release date at TGS this month!
