Famitsu has posted several updates regarding multiple video games. According to a report from Gematsu on April 10, the publication talked about some of the biggest rumors associated with the Japanese gaming industry. Among the software products that were disclosed include “Demon’s Souls 2,” “Persona 5” and “The Last Guardian.”

A sequel for “Demon’s Souls” has been heavily rumored in the past. The director of the original game also apparently stated that “Demon’s Souls 2” was in development during at closed door event at E3 2013. However, Sony Computer Entertainment remarked that they have nothing to discuss currently with regards to the potential project when approached by Famitsu. As a result, the Japanese magazine believed that there is only a 10 chance that the sequel will be released for the PS3 action role-playing game.

Sony Computer Entertainment sounded more upbeat about “The Last Guardian.” The publisher revealed that they are waiting for the right time to re-reveal the long-delayed action-adventure video game. Based on the development of the project, new details (including the release date) could be announced in the near future.

Unfortunately, Famitsu did not get much of an update in regards to “Persona 5.” Atlus responded to an inquiry by stating that new details about the role-playing game will be revealed at a later date. The sequel was previously confirmed to launch later this winter season in Japan as well as 2015 in North America. You can find an image of the fifth numbered “Persona” installment from the official Atlus Facebook page with the photo attached to this article.

“Persona 5” is only coming to the PS3 while “Demon’s Souls 2” is speculated to be in development for the PS4. “The Last Guardian” started out life as a PS3 game although recent rumors suggested that the development has been moved to the PS4. All three games could theoretically show up at E3 2014, the biggest gaming convention of the year.
