Atlus Teases With New Persona 5 Trailer

Atlus released a teaser trailer today that shows off what is likely the theme for the next Persona and… well, it’s pretty weird. Take a look for yourself.

So we’re to expect Persona 5 around winter of 2014 for Playstation 3. Just another reason to keep your older system around. Keep in mind that the winter 2014 release window could be for Japan only, while North America and Europe come a while after. But let’s remain hopeful towards a worldwide launch next winter.

There’s also a website up for the game already, but there’s not much there except for the same video you just watched.

It seems the theme this time around is emancipation, but I wonder what you’ll have to do this time around to awaken your persona.

I’ve always loved the Persona series for being really strange, but I guess that’s why I like almost all of Atlus’ RPG titles. There’s just something there that clicks for me, but I can’t quite put my finger on it. So I’m really eager to get my hands on Persona 5, or even just to see a bit of gameplay. I can’t help but wonder what took them so long to release a new Persona game though.

What do you think, are you skeptical after waiting so long from the release of Persona 4 or do you think Atlus still has the magic?
