Atlus has confirmed Persona 5 is to be released on PlayStation 4 alongside the already confirmed PS3 version.
The news of a PS4 version came during Sony Computer Entertainment’s press conference at Tokyo Game Show yesterday, alongside a statement which detailed that the release date was to be moved from late 2014 to 2015.
The studio has originally confirmed a new entry in the JRPG series back in November 2013, and the game was to be released as a PS3 exclusive. Little has happened since the original reveal, except a poster showcasing five chairs, with a ball strapped to each and the tagline: "You are a slave. Want emancipation?"
The limited info states the game is returning to its school setting, focusing on themes of restraint and liberation in society. Series creator, Katsura Hashino said Persona 5 will take aim to make fans of the third and fourth game “feel right at home” while attempting to make the game more approachable to newcomers to the series.
A European release date for Persona 5 has yet to be confirmed. However, both PlayStation 3 and PS4 are not region-locked, so English-speaking gamers who want to try the title out can import the US version and work with that.
