The Persona series has big plans to celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2021

The producers of Persona 5 Royal have begun to hint at Persona’s 25th Anniversary plan, which includes a new game.

Persona 5 Royal recently won the Partner Award at the PlayStation Awards 2020 Japan Asia due to strong sales in Japan, Europe and the United States.

In a thank-you message from members of the Atlas P-Studio (uploaded and translated by Persona Central) development team, Royal Director Kazuhisa Wada described how next year will celebrate Persona’s 25th anniversary. It was.

He promised that the anniversary wouldn’t be celebrated, hinting at “many exciting plans” for the upcoming series.

Wada previously mentioned the 25th anniversary of 2019 in an interview with Famitsu. This suggests that everything Atlus planned was working for some time.

The Persona series first started in 1996 on the original PlayStation as a spin-off from the Shin Megami Tensei series of Japanese role-playing games.

However, over time, Persona became more popular of the two, received numerous unique spin-offs, and even won the Joker, the main character of Persona 5, at Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

But now, the only persona game confirmed in 2021 is Persona 5 Scramblers. This is a spin-off / sequel to Persona 5, which plays like the game of Dynasty Warriors, just like Hyrule Warriors.

A new trailer accidentally leaked earlier today reveals that it will finally come west on February 23, about a year after it was released in Japan for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

Apart from that, two new goddess reincarnation games are planned for next year. The first is Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne (also known as Lucifer’s Call) PlayStation 4 and Switch HD remaster, which will arrive in the west in early 2021 (already in Japan).

The second is a new entry dedicated to Switch called Shin Megami Tensei 5. The game was announced in 2017 as one of Switch’s first games, but only recently received a new trailer confirming the 2021 release year.

Other potential projects can only be inferred at this time. Although unlikely to be released in 2021, Atlus may at some point announce Persona 6 with a teaser trailer.

Perhaps there is another crossover title like Persona Q in the 3DS game to keep the fans captivated? Or is it a new fighting game like Persona 4 Arena?

The project is probably not limited to games either. The Persona series had live concerts before, so those new ones aren’t unexpected (though they may have to be virtual given the current climate).
