The People Who Make Persona Are Now Focusing On Persona 5

No more distractions. It's been four years since the last real Persona, and the people behind the RPG series want to release a fifth one.

Speaking in this week's issue of Famitsu, as translated by Andriasang, Atlus exec Katsura Hashino said the team has submitted illustrations and made progress on Persona 5. No word on an official announcement or release date. But hey, progress!

Hashino is also developing "a collaborative project that will surprise everyone," he told the mag.

The latest spinoff in Atlus's popular series, fighting game Persona 4 Arena, came out yesterday for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Atlus will release Persona 4 Golden on Vita later this year.
