Please look forward to it!”

Shin Megami Tensei V and Project Re Fantasy are the following mainline Shin Megami sport, coming to Nintendo Switch, and a brand new fantasy game from a staff of Persona veterans that’s anticipated to return to PlayStation four and Switch, respectively. Whatever Atlus has deliberate for Persona’s 25th birthday is a thriller. A brand new sport, Persona 5 Strikers, a hack-and-slash spinoff, is attributable to arrive February 23, and a commemorative Shin Megami concert will be livestreamed in March.
