Atlus has been busy preparing for the 25th anniversary of the acclaimed Persona series, though their plan has been disrupted somewhat by the COVID-19 pandemic. We’ve already seen the Persona Arena Ultimax re-release and Persona 5 Royal come to multiple platforms, including the Nintendo Switch later this month. Then in January 2023 we will see the release of Persona 4 Golden HD and Persona 3 Portable HD on Switch and other platforms.

“Finally, P5R will be available for the whole world to play on the latest hardware, including PC! P5R is now 3 years old and P5 is 6 years old, but we are very happy to be able to share with you the best experience of game possible. This is a must-have title for all gamers!
“It is also with great sadness that we have to end the unending momentum of Persona’s 25th anniversary. With the live concert ‘Persona Super Live P-Sound Wish 2022: Crossing Journeys’, we would like to conclude it. It There are so many things I would like to tell you, but I deeply apologize that I cannot on this occasion. I would like to share them with you at the right time, so look forward to more information on the Persona series in the future.
