Persona 5 confirmed for PS4

Atlus confirms the upcoming PS3 game will be a new-gen title too

Persona 5 will be released on PS4 alongside the already confirmed PS3 version, Atlus has confirmed.

The news of a PS4 version was announced at Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia's press conference today, along with a statement that the game's release window has slipped from 2014 to 2015.


The studio confirmed in November 2013 that the next main entry in the influential JRPG series would be a PlayStation 3 exclusive.


A western release for Persona 5 was then announced in February, confirming that the game would be headed to North America.

Very little has been revealed about Persona 5, which was initially revealed via a cryptic that showed five chairs with a ball and chain attached to each and the tagline: "You are a slave. Want emancipation?"

Other information known about the game include the return of a school setting, and the focus on themes of restraint and liberation in society.

Series director Katsura Hashino has stated that Persona 5 will aim to make fans of the third and fourth games "feel right at home" while also attempting make the game more approachable to newcomers to the series.

A European release for Persona 5 has yet to be confirmed, though it should be pointed out that both the PS3 and PS4 are region-free devices and any English-speaking gamers in Europe wishing to play the game will be able to import the US version.
