Game developer Atlus has confirmed that "Persona 5" will be one of the game titles to be showcased in next week's Tokyo Game Show 2015. The news comes after a TGS teaser website via Personal Central announced that the company will be joining this year's highly anticipated Japanese gaming convention.
With this, avid fans and gamers can expect a new trailer for the game in the event. At the same time, the game's release date will be announced next week, Design & Trend reported on Thursday.
"Persona 5" is also in a rather curious position. Atlus has repeatedly said that the game will be released in 2015. Should that assumption be true, Tokyo Game Show is the final major event that it can be promoted. After that, the holiday rush of the year's biggest titles will be too consuming to create a message that speaks loud enough to the fans of this globally-loved franchise," the report said.
Siliconera reports that Atlus will be having an event dubbed as "Persona Special Stage" during the Tokyo Game Show event that will be held on Sept. 19 from 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm Japan Standard Time. It was said that the Atlus' stage event will feature some of the game's popular talents behind the "Persona" series.
Confirmed artists for the event include vocalist Yumi Kawamura, Lotus Juice, Shihoko Hirata, DJ WAKA and more, as these artists will render a live performance on stage. Aside from the stage event, it was reported that there will be a live talk show that will feature Persona Stalker Club's hosts Mafia Kajita and Tomomi Isomura.
"Atlus hasn't shared any details on whether we'll get a new trailer or release date for Persona 5 at Tokyo Game Show, but seeing that they're going to have this special event for the occasion, there's a good chance that we may get something new," the report noted.
