“Until the year 2021, Persona series has sold more than 15 million copies around the world ”, we can see in the web portal released this Tuesday morning. The saga is at its best at the media and commercial level. Only last fiscal year they added 1.9 of those 15 million copies thanks to Persona 5 Royal, Persona 4 Golden (PC) and Persona 5 Strikers.
“To all of our fans who have supported us for so long, we thank you with all our hearts. Next September, the Persona series will finally celebrate its 25th anniversary. To show our gratitude, we are preparing a series of celebrations throughout a year that runs from September 2021 to the fall of 2022 ”, specifies Atlus. Specifically, they talk about 25th anniversary merchandising articles and events related to Persona; included video game news and more, “We will do all kinds of announcements about the anniversary. Stay tuned ”, they finish.
What announcements can we expect from Persona in the next year?
The first name that can come to every fan head is an eventual Person 6. Taking into account that Person 4, directed by Katsura Hashino, was originally released in Japan for PS2 in July 2008; So what Person 5 did the same on PS3 and PS4 in September 2016, perhaps it is time to anticipate the next numbered main iteration of the series, although there may still be perfectly more than a couple of years until its premiere.
What is a certainty is the success of the series, which has ceased to be a product only successful in Japan to become a product desired by lovers of JRPG in the West. The Spanish translation of Persona 5 Royal was a declaration of intent; as well as the recent 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim and Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster, both from Atlus under the SEGA edition.
Similarly, gamers on consoles beyond PlayStation, such as Xbox or Nintendo Switch, want to be able to enjoy works like Persona 4 and Persona 5 in their ecosystem. So far, the numbered saga has remained exclusive (always talking about consoles) on Sony platforms.
