Surprise, Persona 5 Announced for PS3

Atlus has been teasing a Persona announcement for several weeks now. While most everyone just assumed this would be the reveal of the series’ next installment, P5, there were some who considered other alternatives. Nevertheless, the countdown has reached an end, and the unveiling has occurred. So what are we left with? You guessed it, Persona 5! Shocking, we know. But despite how most of us saw this coming from well over a mile away, it’s no less exciting to know that one of the best JRPG franchises is bringing forth its next big entry.

As of now, Persona 5 will hit PS3 in Winter 2014. And while this applies solely to a Japanese release, it wouldn’t be unwise to assume that the game will see the light of day in the West eventually. Unfortunately, no gameplay is shown off in the reveal trailer, but interested parties will see enough in the montage to satiate their appetites. So, without any further ado, fix eyes on the video below. And after that, to get more of your fill, check out our sequel showdown piece to see which we think is the better game: Persona 3 or Persona 4.
