“Shin Megami Tensei Persona 5” won’t be coming out in the North American region until next year. According to a report from NZ Gamer on Feb. 26, Atlus recently announced the release date time frames for four “Persona” games.
The fifth main installment of the series should end up being the biggest release of the upcoming batch. Although “Shin Megami Tensei Persona 5” is due to come out in Japan sometime during the winter season of 2014, the English version is set to be released in 2015.
Atlus is also planning to release “Persona 4: Dancing All Night” for the Playstation Vita next year as well. The handheld game is described as a music rhythm dancing featuring characters from the “Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4” story.
To make the wait for “Persona 4: Dancing All Night” and “Shin Megami Tensei Persona 5” shorter, the publisher will be releasing “Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth” for the Nintendo 3DS as well as “Persona 4 Arena Ultimax” for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 in the fall season of this year. The former is a dungeon-crawling game from the developer of the “Etrian Odyssey” series while the latter is a follow-up to the arcade fighting game that came out in 2012.
Atlus, a subsidiary of Sega, will be publishing all for aforesaid upcoming titles. You can find some screens from “Persona 4 Arena Ultimax” with the slideshow to the left of this article.
