Game Giants Podcast 6.8 (6.5?) The Persona 5 Spoilercast

We talked about Persona 5 and our opinion on the game. There are spoilers of course.

Persona Game Overload

If you love Persona, Atlus and P Studio has more games for you. Three spin-offs have been announced for the main franchise. For Rhythm Game Fans (Dance Dance Revolution, Rock Band, Hatsune Miku), Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5: Dancing Star Night. While they definitely don’t keep the same theme as their original games, they are non-canonical stories. Persona 4: Dancing All Night had a story for the game, so it’ll be interesting to see what the developers have in store for Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5: Dancing Star Night. Persona 5 had a reference to a character in Persona 4: Dancing All Night but no other mentions. They will release for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in 2018 for Japan.

Also, P Studio also announced Persona Q2, a sequel to the Nintendo 3DS Etrian Odyssey type game: Persona Q. All that has been shown is the logo which alludes to Persona 5 characters. The original was a connection story for Persona 3 and 4.

The animation will be done by A-1 productions whose recent works include Sword Art Online, Aldonoah Zero, Fairy Tail, and Persona 4 Golden: The Animation. Voice actors have all been announced and the teaser trailer is below. No actual footage is shown but I’m a huge fan of the game and series so I am excited about the anime.
