Atlus Starting Work on Persona 5

The developer of the Shin Megami Tensei: Persona JRPG series is now set to start work on... Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 5, says the man behind Persona 3 and Persona 4.

It's been a long time since we last heard anything about the followup to PS2 swan song Persona 4 - the last we heard, longtime Atlus composer Shoji Meguro had been credited with doing the soundtrack to Persona 5, but nothing concrete materialized from those rumors.

Now, however, we may have something definite, reports Kotaku. Katsura Hashino, who previously worked as producer and director on both Persona 3 and Persona 4, told Japanese game mag Dengeki PlayStation that work was beginning on the next Persona - but that things might be changing up a bit.

"We are preparing to start work on the next Persona," said Hashino. "I want to add things that are being expected of the series," he elaborated, but added that he also wanted "to change things that can be changed within those boundaries."

Smart money says the next game will likely be about Japanese teenagers who have the ability to summon powerful alter egos based on their innermost selves, and who each fall into a different category of the tarot arcana. The power of said alter egos will depend as much on how much time the teenagers spend hanging out after school together as it does on how much time they spend level grinding in dungeons recreated out of the human psyche.

But that's just a guess. He did say that he wanted to change it up, though. So maybe they'll be... Japanese college students this time around? What would you like to see in a new Persona?

In other news, Kotaku's Brian Ashcraft has excellent taste in pairing preferences.

now there are 3 games that i cannot play. first Final Fantasy XIII, God of War and Persona 5. i just hope persona 5 will be in ps2 or psp console...


Selamat Hari Raya

I have a Microsoft waiter

Patron: Waiter!

Waiter: Hi, my name is Bill, and I'll be your Support Waiter. What seems to be the problem?

Patron: There's a fly in my soup!

Waiter: Try again, maybe the fly won't be there this time.

Patron: No, it's still there.

Waiter: Maybe it's the way you're using the soup; try eating it with a fork instead.

Patron: Even when I use the fork, the fly is still there.

Waiter: Maybe the soup is incompatible with the bowl; what kind of bowl are you using?

Patron: A SOUP bowl!

Waiter: Hmmm, that should work. Maybe it's a configuration problem; how was the bowl set up?

Patron: You brought it to me on a saucer; what has that to do with the fly in my soup?!

Waiter: Can you remember everything you did before you noticed the fly in your soup?

Patron: I sat down and ordered the Soup of the Day!

Waiter: Have you considered upgrading to the latest Soup of the Day?

Patron: You have more than one Soup of the Day each day?

Waiter: Yes, the Soup of the Day is changed every hour.

Patron: Well, what is the Soup of the Day now?

Waiter: The current Soup of the Day is tomato.

Patron: Fine. Bring me the tomato soup, and the check. I'm running late now.

[Waiter leaves and returns with another bowl of soup and the check]

Waiter: Here you are, Sir. The soup and your check.

Patron: This is potato soup.

Waiter: Yes, the tomato soup wasn't ready yet.

Patron: Well, I'm so hungry now, I'll eat anything.

[The waiter leaves.]

Patron: Waiter! There's a gnat in my soup!
