Persona 5? No? Yes? Please?!

Persona 4

Here we go again. This week’s surprise Famitsu scoop, teased last week, appears to be Killer is Dead (Suda 51’s new game—stay tuned for an update on that) (or it could be Kamen Rider, I’m not sure). But Famitsu has another surprise scoop for next week.

“Surprise new scoop,” reads the magazine. “New activity regarding that popular series? The information will surprise you!”

The issue will also have the latest report on Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.

Thanks, Game Nyarth.

    There are too many titles considered to be “popular” for Japanese. I’m tired of how Asian play around with words.

    Screw Famitsu, theyre not gonna trick me again

    • Himiko

      Not really a trick. Kamen Rider is awesome.

        Not the point he was expecting something else.

        • Himiko

          It doesn’t matter what he was expecting. Thing is, in Japan KR is extremely popular, lol.

          • Pyrofrost

            TRUTH!
            And I will be importing it~

          • Revorse

            More popular than I imagined, actually. One of the recent movies raked in like 6 million US dollars.

          • http://www.facebook.com/wtfits.gardner Cat Flames

            We know that you are telling us things we already know… like I said he was expecting something else and so was I no one here is bashing KR FFS. BTW it matters to him what he was expecting… you self centered brat.

            • Himiko

              I’m not saying he is bashing anything. Don’t go jumping to conclusions. I’m trying to say that there was no trick involved. There is truth to this and it was a surprise.

              • http://www.facebook.com/wtfits.gardner Cat Flames

                Lets leave it here if this goes any further you might get your feelings hurt and I am not about to sit hear and do something like that to a kid. have a nice day.

                • Himiko

                  ? lol you seem like the one who got his feelings hurt. Can you even read? Are you in denial?

  • Raiyu

    I KNEW the game they were teasing was Killer is Dead. Anyway on topic, Final Fantasy Versus XII, Persona 5, MGSV. BELIEVE!

    Edit: Sal, is there anything about the Capcom game or whatever?

  • PrinceHeir

    i fucking knew it was Killer is Dead!!!

  • Haku_Luvs_You

    Damn I was still holding out for Senran Kagura on consoles :(

  • Prodigy-X

    Its got to be Persona 5.

  • Eclipse

    So there’s still a chance this could be P5…?

    Anyway, ToX2 came out only two months ago, so a mothership game is out of the question… So maybe versus XIII? I’ll just patiently wait for the announcement, because all this speculation will just give me a headache. >_<

    • Himiko

      LR is being featured in next issue, so they won’t clash.

      • Eclipse

        Whoa, I forgot about that!
        They definitely wouldn’t want Versus XIII to steal LR’s spotlight.

        • Himiko

          And Tales of are usually announced at their anniversary events? So its P5 or nothing. :P

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Bobby-Jennings/100000158197173 Bobby Jennings

      A new mothership title comes out every year for Tales, but I wouldn’t be surprised.

  • SirAuron14

  • MosquitoLemon

    “The issue will also have the latest report on Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.”

    Are you sure the popular series isn’t Final Fantasy?

  • Niyari

    i’m going to go bonkers if it’s P5

  • DarthBrian

    Killer is Dead was a long awaited title?
    Really?
    LOL

  • jeb

    Is famitsu a monthly or weekly magazine?
    Now that whoever wrote this article hinted P5, I don’t think I can resist hyping this up to he moon, if my dreams have to shatter,the sooner the better.

  • burning steak

    I really hope they give the whole animesque plot and characters a rest, i mean the first 2 Persona games were awesome because its characters and themes and not because its cliche plot and ‘senpai, onii-chan, [insert name here]-chan’ crap like that, i dont mind the combat system but the dating sim elements needs to get out as well the romance option, i want a mature Persona game that’s all

  • YangTerlupakan

    Ahhhh…. i have bad feeling about this!!!!!!!!!

  • KurisuMakise

    I will not board this false hype train Sal, I will not -already onboard-
