When too much Persona ain’t nearly enough

Don’t ask me.

It looks like Persona fans will be well catered for in the years ahead. As reported by Polygon, Japanese publisher Atlus is promising to expand the franchise with no fewer than four original titles, including its long awaited headline act Persona 5.

Beyond the title, Atlus has revealed little about Persona 5, other than it will feature themes of slavery and emancipation. Much as Persona 4 arrived on PS2 long after the PS3 had launched, Persona 5 is destined for the aging PS3 console rather than the newly minted PS4.

Also in the works is Persona 4: Dancing All Night, a bonkers rhythm game for the Vita that sees the cast of the acclaimed RPG compete in dance offs. Less surprising (unless you consider the bizarre title of the game) is the announcement of Persona 4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold, a PS3 fighting game in the vein of 2012’s Persona 4: Arena.

Finally, Atlus is hard at work on Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth. As noted by Famitsu (via Gematsu), this 3DS exclusive will combine characters from Persona 3 and Persona 4.

All four titles are due for release in 2014, but only if you happen to live in Japan. Atlus is yet to reveal its plans for localisation.
