Persona 5 Domain | oprainfall

A domain for Persona 5, “Persona5.jp”, was registered by Index Corporation, the parent company of Atlus, on June 25th. This fact was confirmed by the domain’s registration information. Although Index has recently filed for bankruptcy, they did confirm that Atlus will continue to release on schedule and that the brand will remain active.

It’s not clear what all of this means for the future of the Shin Megami Tensei series, or for Persona 5, although the game was previously confirmed to be in development. We haven’t heard much about the upcoming JRPG, but hopefully this domain registration means that we’ll be hearing more from Atlus soon. Interestingly enough, “persona5.com” was registered earlier this year, but the identity of who it was registered by is private.

With all the uncertainty surrounding Index and Atlus right now, it would definitely be nice to get some official announcement regarding Persona 5, but the domain registration certainly doesn’t guarantee anything. It’s possible that Index just wanted to protect the domain to ensure they would have it in the future. All we can do is cross our fingers and hope for the best!

    Looking forward to this. Really loved Persona 4 Golden.

    Man, words cannot explain the massive amount of hype I’m feeling right now.

    Definitely wishing this means something. I have been waiting this game eagerly for the last two months(which isn’t a lot, compared to some other people). It is soon the time that the game should be coming out, in any case. I do understand that games of Persona’s quality take time and effort to develop, but still, I hope 5 is out soon.
    At the best scenario, we are looking at a mid-summer release next year… Though that is a very hopeful look at this situation.

    Yes yes yes! It will probably be on PS3 (hopefully)…though if Nintendo buys Atlus it’d be on Wii U…which wouldn’t be a bad thing for their console.

      Why the heck would you want Nintendo to buy Atlus?

    • Dominic St-Jacques

      Where did I say or even imply that I want Nintendo to buy Atlus?
      It’s just that a lot of people speculate it might happen. Personally, I’d rather have them be bought by a third party developer to avoid Internet Drama, but I’d hate it if Sony bought them because it would cause the cancellation of a game (Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem).

    I buying it, I dont care what it is, Im buying it.

    There’s one down vote on every comment, is there an angry Final Sci-fi fan running rampant?

    Hoping this is for the PS4 so there can be a custom ps4 in the works. One can hope I suppose.
