Altus’ Persona 5 Releases New Video Teaser With Joker in Voice-Over

Atlus, Persona 5’s developer, released a video teaser on Dec 9 to the series’ fans’ surprise. The video, dominated with red and with the series’ logo, features a voice-over and a new website.

The Japanese voice-over by Joker, the protagonist of the series, tells viewers about a special event upcoming for March 2019. It also features a backdrop of Shibuya, both a real-world and in-game location, with a billboard showing “New Projects.” The catchphrase “Take Your Heart,” in accordance with the game’s themes, is also repeated throughout the teaser.

Upon clicking the website, viewers are to see the same video teaser posted, along with the game’s official website (featuring news about the game), their social media pages, and a reminder of the announcement on March.

This announcement will be by the same time that the game’s anime adaption, Persona 5: The Animation, will air its concluding episodes.

Fans have begun speculating that the game will finally have its Nintendo Switch port. This can further be believed as Joker is officially confirmed as one of the characters for Super Smash Bros Ultimate, which is a game for the mentioned console. However, the presence of the PlayStation logo at the start of the teaser may further confuse fans.

Aside from this, fans also theorize that Atlus may release an enhanced version of the game. The company has done this before for earlier entries to the franchise including Person 4 Golden, Person 3 Portable, and Persona 3 FES. These enhanced editions include a Director’s Cut version, a playable epilogue, a new female character, new elements, and new music. If the company decides to push for an additional Persona 5 edition, there might be more left for fans to see in-game.

Persona 5 is a role-playing game that centers on a group of students who discover their Persona powers which they use to configure with the subconscious desires of humans through a supernatural realm. The gameplay features turn-based role-playing gameplay that has a driving narrative. It has a day-and-night cycle. It has been called one of the best roleplaying games ever made by a lot of news outlets who praised the title’s gameplay, story, and style. It is also a commercial success.

With this teaser, fans are still left unsure of what is to come. Further news about this can be expected on March 2019.
