Atlus USA announces North American release of latest batch of Persona games

Posted on February 25, 2014 AT 10:00am

Yes, boys and girls, it’s finally official—the four new Persona games announced recently in Japan are all making their way to the States.

This morning, Atlus USA has confirmed that Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, Persona 4: Dancing All Night, Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth, and, of course, Persona 5 are all being prepped for English release in North America.

This doesn’t come as much of a surprise—there was no way the games would not be coming, given that they’re some of Atlus’ biggest upcoming projects—but it’s still nice to have their release official.

While there’s no solid dates just yet, here are the launch windows as they stand now:

  • Persona 4 Arena Ultimax – Fall 2014
  • Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth – Fall 2014
  • Persona 4: Dancing All Night – 2015
  • Persona 5 – 2015

I’m actually okay with not getting Persona 5 until next year, because the more time that goes by, the more chance Sega will try to convince Atlus to also port the game to the PS4. No, I’m not holding my breath for that to happen—but I can dream, can’t I? Plus, with three other Persona games between now and then, I’ll have plenty of things to play.
