I hope Persona 3 remake is one of them. 

Wouldn't be surprised if they eventually re-made persona 3 and 4, with both of them having updated character models in the dancing games

If not full-on remakes of the older games, I'm at least expecting a port of Persona 4 Golden to PS4 since that sold so well on PC. They would be foolish not to do that. Maybe a Persona 6 announcement if we're lucky, but it *is* Atlus, so they probably aren't done milking Persona 5 just yet.

Possibly. The first teaser on the website for september has the persona 4 yellow background to it

I hope they add more adult party members in Persona 6 like Wolf in strikers. Wonder what kind of other world they'll go to, maybe a SMT MMO lol

I'm hoping they at least port P4G to PS4/PS5. This is Atlus we're talking about, and they've always been kind of confusing with their releases (only original Catherine released for PC? Persona 5 on Switch is a no-no but Strikers is fine? P4G ported to PC only when a lot of their audience is primarily on Playstation consoles since that's what they've mostly been exclusive to?), so I don't want to get my hopes up when some of these announcements could potentially just be for merch or concerts or something.

 

But if I'm being more optimistic, I hope the announcements include ports/remasters or full on remakes of Persona 1 through to 3, perhaps some new spin-offs (but no more dancing games please), and a Persona 6 announcement (which I think is actually pretty likely, it will probably be in the one set for late 2022)

Well here are some of the things I hope happen..

 

Persona 6 (Seems very likely this will happen) 

P4G ported to PS4/Switch

Persona 1 - 3 ported to everything

Persona 3 Remake (If the above doesn't happen, I really hope a remake is in the works)

Persona 5 Arena (Surprised this isn't even out yet, this has to be one of the announcements) 

Persona Q 1 & 2 ported to the Switch (Dunno how the dungeons will work since it relied heavily on the 3DS touch screen, but I'm sure they can work around that. Cmon...LIGHT THE FIRE UP!) 

New dancing game that features all characters from 1-5

I would love P3 remake or P6 announcement but I also hope we get something different and fun. Like a Sports game with all the characters or something like that or a action adventure game starring characters from different games (like the velvet room randomly sucked different characters up and dropped them in a new world)

 

I dont know, i just want something different

I love to see the remastered for Persona 3. That will be awesome for celebrating 25th anniversary of Shin Megami Tensei's Persona.

One of them better be Persona 5 Arena :o

 

They should make it a 2v2 or 3v3 fighter, the BATTON PASS could be used as a character switch function - hire me Atlus, I have good ideas for Persona 5 Arena lol

At the very least, I would like to see a port of Persona 4 Golden to PS4, and maybe a remake/remaster of Persona 3 FES for modern systems as well.  A Persona 5 Arena would be nice too.

The last announcement will probably be P6. It'll probably be a tease next year and probably won't come out until the end of this console generation, lol.

 

A P3 and/or P4 remake with the dancing models would be pretty blessed. P4 can remain as the same game, but P3 should probably combine elements from FES and Portable. Controllable party members and being able to do the social links of all of your party members regardless of your gender is a necessity. It was kinda dumb how only the FeMC could do the social links with the male party members. That being said, the male party members basically replaced some of the social links from the male MC's side so if they don't want to remove some links, they'll need to do some arcana rearranging.

 

Since this is a 25th anniversary celebration, I really hope they do something with P1 and P2 since they've never got any highlights since their PSP ports. A remake of P1 and the P2 duology with a social link integration would be crazy!

 

And yeah, one of these has got to be P5 Arena. ArcSys needs to be on the developing team though, especially after them integrating rollback with Guilty Gear. A 3D ArcSys Persona fighting game with rollback is a godsend combination!

Agreed, the fact Shinjiro's fate changes only on the FeMC route really sucks

I should probably play P4G before it goes on PS4/5 tour and before my PSVita dies of old age xD

 

Double Platinum sounds nice

Update: One of the teasers possibly confirmed to be Persona 6. Job listing page on the atlus website revealed it. 

 

https://www.gameinformer.com/2021/07/13/persona-6-confirmed-to-create-a-6-which-exceeds-5

 

"

Earlier today, we reported that Atlus revealed an updated Persona website teasing many franchise-related projects in the works. It looks like one of those is a now confirmed Persona 6, an entry that the company wants to see exceed what was accomplished with the previous entry. 

The Persona 6 confirmation is thanks to an official recruitment page that Atlus Japan uses. This site includes interviews held with a variety of Atlus employees to get a feel for what the culture was like at the company and more about upcoming projects. It was during these interviews that the confirmation that Persona 6 is in development was found. 

According to Atlus director Naoto Hiraoka, the vision for Persona 6 is not a small one and one that can't be realized with the current staff. That is the drive behind the recruitment ad, to garner for talent to make this the game that they want to deliver. "

"Thanks to a large amount of support we received for Persona 5, we have gotten a sense of accomplishment," said Hiraoka. "But we can’t stop there. When we created Persona 4, there was the pressure that it had to exceed Persona 3. Now, we will have to create a 6 which exceeds 5. However, exceeding 5 will be difficult with the current staff. I would like to surpass this tall hurdle with everyone who joins us in this recruitment. The workplace is perfect for those who want a creative challenge when it comes to bringing games to the world.”

How far along in the development process Persona 6 is, or even if it is currently in active development, remains to be seen. But with the recent teasers made by the company, it looks like we may be learning more about what's next for the Persona franchise very soon. "

Snip

I don’t think “is Persona 6 happening?” has ever really been the question. It’s “will we see any Persona 6 assets as one of these announcements” that’s up for debate. Interesting article, but not sure it helps answer that one

I was thinking about starting P1 PSP, I guess I should hold off in case we get a remaster / remake. I'd probably play P3 and P4 again on newer systems (I played them both on Vita).

 

I guess people love the P4 Arena games. I suck at fighting games and hate them, but I forced myself through the two out there so I could experience the story. If we do get a new Arena, I hope it has a "bad at fighting games, here for the story" difficulty level for the campaign. If it has no campaign, I won't bother.

 

I am still playing Strikers, but a follow up to that (with a different team, or an Arena / Q team-up) would be cool. I liked the Dancing games - I'm not great at rhythm games but I liked those, and of course the Persona music is always great to experience in new ways. It would be cool to see the P3 story continued after the Aigis storyline from FES (this is a good candidate for a new Arena I guess).

 

Of course P6 is coming regardless, so I'm more excited for other potential games.

My guesses would be a Persona 5 Arena and Persona 4 Golden PS4/5 port.

With the way FES ended and Persona 4 arena with Elizabeth, it could definitely have another story with them

Atlus are not crazy, They would dance and fight separately. Either would just soil P3. Imagine playing p3 and at any stage a dance routine appears.

Well yeah but it's a business. We all started SMT at different times and honestly I respect everyone's experience and appreciated the love because you understand the series and get what makes the games so special. I came from SMT to persona and frankly loved the first 2 personas. Those that started on 3 or 4 or 5 are gonna be pretty damn happy to see previous games in the series for sure.

 

My true hope is that Devil Summoner and Devil summoner Soul Hackers both get a modern release, I think I may have been obsessed beyond any healthy measures with Devil Summoner on the Sega Saturn. But it was worth it as it lead me to the previous SFC SMT games and sega cd, they also lead me to Persona and I f'n loved the first 2 games. These older SMT games are darker games then the Persona Series but an alternative universe that all fans will immediately understand.

 

Amazingly though, I truly dislike the Dancing/Fighting games, sorry for the hate but you guys can like them of course.
