This year, famed Persona role-playing game maker Atlus is going to apparently announce a new game. It's more than that, though. Atlus is going to reveal a game that everybody's waiting for "soon".

The Tokyo-based game company supposedly said as much in its New Year's card, leading to online speculation that the eagerly awaited Persona 5 is right around the corner.

In Mar. 2010, Persona producer Katsura Hashino told Japanese game mag Dengeki PlayStation, "We are preparing to start work on the next Persona."

"I want to add things that are being expected of the series," Hashino added at the time. "I also want to change things that can be changed within those boundaries."


Kotaku is following up with Atlus and will update this post should the company comment.
