Persona 5 has just released its latest spin-off, Persona 5 Strikers, of which we have done a most complete analysis. However, it appears that Atlus already has a new franchise game in development, and it would be a Persona 5 fighting game.
This comes after Atlus is bringing back a bunch of web pages from the Persona franchise. The websites are titled Person 8, Person 9, and Person 10, although they are currently not linked to anything. However, there is one whose domain attracted a lot of attention, and it is an Atlus website called “P5U.JP”.
Although it may seem strange, this website has been the cause of the rumor of a possible Persona 5 fighting game. Persona 4 Arena, a famous fighting game in the franchise, was abbreviated as P4U in Japan. Now, we have P5U, which would indicate that the next Persona 5 could indeed belong to the fighting genre.
It should be noted that the web does not exist yet, but Atlus has probably taken over the domain in case you need to use it one day. Persona 5 could arrive on Xbox very soon, and if Persona 5 Arena turns out to be a reality, it would be a great way to close the 25th anniversary of the franchise with a flourish.
