Geoff Keighley has made an interesting comment in regards to possibility of the recently-announced Playstation 3 exclusive video game, “Persona 5,” being shown off at the upcoming VGX event. According to a report from Dual Shockers on Nov. 30, the host of Game Trailers TV stated that the role-playing game won’t be a part of the awards ceremony.
Geoff Keighley also noted that the decision wasn’t due to their lack of effort, however. He disclosed that VGX committee asked Atlus and Sega about “Persona 5” but was ultimately shot down. You can check out his short comment below:
No Persona 5 - we asked.
“Persona 5” was first announced on Nov. 24. The sequel, which has only been confirmed for the Playstation 3 current-generation console, will follow a similar formula as “Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3” and “Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4.” The main characters of the story are once again going to be modern-day high school students. Aside from a few vague story hints, not much information has been revealed so far for the role-playing game.
Although “Persona 5” may not have seem like a good fit with the western-focused VGX, the series has gained some traction over the years due to the critical acclaim of the two previous installments along with an animated television show and other spin-off titles.
The VGX event will take place on Dec. 7 while “Persona 5” is due to come out in the winter season of 2014 for the Japanese region. A few screenshots of “Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4” on the Playstation Vita could be seen in the slideshow to the left of this article.
