I apologize if BT is beginning to look like a Megami Tensei fan-site, but this is big news. This week’s issue of Japanese video game magazine Famitsu has just been translated by Andriasang, and contains some heartening news for fans of Atlus’ marquee franchise. According to the post, “Team Persona’s Katsura Hashino says that his staff is currently focused on the next numbered entry in the Persona series (that means Persona 5).”
The next game in the wildly successful series of JRPGs is underway, with artwork and programming progress occurring at this very moment. There are other games in the works for both Atlus and Hashino, but nothing that is going to match the monolithic importance of the next MegaTen entry. Well, whether or not it is the next one depends on the development of Shin Megami Tensei IV. Presumably, IV will be a 3DS and Vita title, while Persona 5 will be for Xbox 360 and PS3. I could be wrong though, so feel free to debate this in the comments below.
