Persona 5 isn't coming out until sometime in the "winter" of 2014 in Japan, but it'll eventually leave there, too. Atlus has announced Persona 5 is also coming to North America in 2015.

(That gives me plenty of time to finally play Persona 4 Golden on my Vita!)

Right now, Persona 5 is only scheduled for a release on PlayStation 3. A version for PlayStation 4 with Remote Play sure would be nice, though!

Atlus also confirmed the other recently announced Persona games--Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, Persona 4: Dancing All Night--are coming over, as well. The update to Persona's fighting spin-off arrives this fall, while the series' introduction to rhythm is next year.

I bought a 3DS the day after Persona Q was announced for Japan.

Can't wait to see more from P5. Will be picking up all the other Persona games in the meantime as well (including Persona Q)!

Worth mentioning that Ultimax is coming to both the PS3 and 360 over here, as opposed to the PS3 only Japanese release.

I wish the 3DS one would come too. Also that P5 would get on the 360 as well.

@daveyo520: Persona Q was confirmed for Fall 2014 release in North America. I wouldn't be too surprised if 5 came to the 360, either.

Too bad a real Persona game will never come to a Nintendo console. If you want to play through those, Playstation is where it's at ;)

I'm just so glad they always split these announcements up. Why bother with the European market/fans anyway?

Happy to hear they're all making it over, especially Q. I'm hoping Persona 5 will be out at least in the first half of 2015, judging by the separation between the Japanese and American release dates of P4

@patrickklepek You should also add that the 3DS cross-over game, Persona Q, is also coming stateside as well.

Pretty stoked, especially for Persona Q, since that might get here a little sooner.

Still gotta play Digital Devil Saga 2!

Yeah, a streaming version for PS4 so I can get to 4 times my data cap for the month on that alone. We paid an overcharge of $150 last month mostly because I watched to much Giantbomb in HD and that wasn't even twice the limit of 120Gb.

@zeeco: I doubt 5 will come to 360. Ultimax is coming because the engine already exists since it is basically an upgrade of P4A and can easily be ported over. 5 is using a brand new engine.

Really bummed out about P5 not being in 360. I'd rather not have to buy a PS3 in friggin' 2015.

Definitely getting the Vita game, and probably the 3DS one.

@patrickklepek Not to be super picky but shouldn't this be filed under persona 5 or the persona franchise page instead of persona 4?

I'm not.

It's been worked on since at least 2011 (so it's not a quick cash grab) and Atlus knows persona is it's most profitable series so I'd imagine they would want to be as mindful of the quality as possible since you won't really make a lot on remakes/anime/spin-offs if nobody liked the first game.

Thank god P4D is coming over. Also, as I had predicted no 360 version.

I will probably just import it from the US. I don't want to wait for however long it takes to get it to Europe.

I swear on all that is holy, if Atlus region locks this game like they did with the fighting game... I will leave several aggressive notes with occasional begging online where Atlus will likely never look.
