Persona 5 Announced with 3 Other New Persona Games
Happy Persona day everyone! After a series of annoying countdown clocks and teaser sites, Atlus finally revealed what they were working on live across various events in Japan. It seems after Sega purchased Atlus, they've decided to put their most popular franchise to work.
The first game announced is Persona Q: Shadow of the Labrynth, which is an all new Persona RPG for Nintendo 3DS. The game features chibi versions of the Persona 3 and 4 cast along with a new storyline and a new villain. The release date given was 6/5/2014.

The second announcement was a game we knew existed, the arcade port of Persona 4 Arena called Persona 4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold. Besides revealing a few tidbits about the new character named Minazuki who cannot use a Persona regularly and the return of Adachi... an arcade release date of 11/28 was given. They also revealed the game will be coming to PlayStation 3 in 2014.

Announcement three was a game I'm sure nobody saw coming. P4D or Persona 4 Dancing All Night is a P4 based dancing game for Sony Vita. The game is being developed by Dingo and features Yu and Rise as well as a new idol named Kanamin. That game has an Autun 2014 release date.
