Almost a year after its original Japanese release and selling nearly 2 million copies, Persona 5 is finally scheduled to follow in the footsteps of its predecessors. Atlus and anime studio A-1 Pictures have confirmed that the mega-hit JRPG will be getting its own anime adaptation in 2018.
The announcement popped up on Persona’s official Twitter account along with a teaser trailer.

A-1 Productions has enjoyed a long partnership with Atlus and the Persona series.The Persona 3 movies and the entire Persona 4 animated series have been the result of this partnership. And while the anime adaptations haven’t been as universally loved as the games, Persona 5’s unique art and movie style will at least make for some interesting television that will feel a bit more fresh.
Check out the anime in 2018, and be sure to play the game on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
