Persona 5 News

Atlus Japan has registered several new websites as reported by Persona Central. They were registered by Ryu Office, a marketing company that has close ties with Atlus. They registered the sites dedicated to Persona 3 Dancing in Moonlight and Persona 5 Dancing in Starlight. Below are the following domains.

  • Persona5R.JP
  • P5S.JP
  • Persona5S.JP
  • Persona5M.JP
  • P5M.JP
  • P5B.JP
  • Persona5B.JP

Most likely they are spin-off titles for the Persona 5 series. Persona 4 had two fighting game spin-offs, a dancing game, two animes, and an updated version for the title which released exclusively on the PlayStation Vita. Rumors believe that Persona 5 or it’s updated version will release on the Nintendo Switch following the announcement of Joker from Persona 5 in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as DLC. I will report on it if it’s confirmed.

There was an announcement for a Persona 5 anime special: Dark Sun. It will expand on the conclusion of the anime that aired in 2018.

Sam Raimi Spider-Man Suit added to Spider-Man PS4

Feeling festive, Insomniac gave the free gift of a new/old Spider-Man suit for their PS4 title. The suit is based on the early 2000’s Spider-Man trilogy by Sam Raimi. It was worn by Tobey McGuire. Many fans requested for the suit. Many fans also yelled and complained at Insomniac for not adding the suit in.

It’s great that Insomniac listened to their fans but I hope this doesn’t lead to fans believing that if they shout loud enough, they’ll get anything they want. We shouldn’t have a culture where complaining at developers for more additional content is acceptable. Hopefully, people won’t beg for another suit anytime soon.

It’s a great addition to the game as now the game has all the Good Spider-Man movie suits.

If you’ve been playing games all years, it’s fun to see what you sunk your time in. As 2018 comes to a close, Xbox and PlayStation are offering users the ability to see all the stats attached to their consoles accounts. This includes most time played, how many achievements/trophies you earned, and your favorite games. PlayStation’s focuses on the past 5 years in regards to the PS4’s lifecycle while Xbox is just 2018.
