Although just released a new one Person 5 separation earlier this year with Person 5 Strikers, it seems that Atlus can continue the series in a new way. Although Atlus and publisher Sega have not yet announced anything officially, some new behind-the-scenes maneuvers show that a new game of Persona can be worked on – especially in the combat genre.
The reason for this belief comes as Atlus recently re-filed a handful of long-term domains on websites it had under its control. Some of the domains in question are not related to anything in particular and are simply labeled Persona 8, Persona 9 and Persona 10. Perhaps the most intriguing domain on the website that Atlus remains in control of, however, is to a potential website entitled “P5U .JP “.
As for how it all ties in Person 5 getting a new fighting game, the title P5U is what shows that Atlus can work on such a project. For those who do not know Person 4 actually got a fighting game that was known as Person 4 Arena. In Japan, this game is usually abbreviated as “P4U“With that in mind, to see this acronym appear again with Person 5 attached means that the studio can work on a similar fighting game with the cast of the latest main game.
It is worth emphasizing that for now P5U.JP is not a real website, which means that it is not something you can visit alone. Atlus just squats on the domain with the unique chance to use it one day. However, the fact that the company chose to keep this domain instead of letting it expire, which would happen at the end of April, seems to tell us that something is happening. Whether we see a message bound by potential Person 5 Arena the game is yet to be seen. And yet, as the franchise turns 25 this year, of course, Atlus will have something new to share before 2021
