Atlus Hints Again At Persona 5, Working On Surprising Collaboration

Posted on August 8, 2012 AT 02:25pm

In the latest issue of Japanese gaming mag Famitsu, Atlus gives another round of Persona 5 teasing, along with stating that they’re working on a surprising collaboration.

Gaming site Gematsu got their hands on the issue, which features a handful of interviews with Japanese game developers.

Atlus’ Katsura Hasino stated that his focus is currently on the next numbered titled on a particular series. While he didn’t state the series, given who he is, the fact that he’s the director of the Persona series, and the fact that we know a new major Persona game is coming (no doubt for PS3 and Xbox 360), it can’t be anything but that.

Another clue? Hasino stated that Atlus artist and designer Shigenori Soejima has done sketches for the project. Soejima was the art director for both Persona 3 and Persona 4. So, yeah.

Hasino then gave another interesting tease: That Atlus is currently in the planning stages of a collaboration project that will come as a surprise. What could that be? Capcom vs. Persona? Pokemon X Shin Megami Tensei? Jack Frost chewable children’s vitamins?
