Took 'em long enough! Atlus has finally revealed Persona 5 with a gloriously vague anime trailer for the game, due out on PS3 - and PS4 - next year.

The latest mainline entry in the Persona series will be directed by Katsura Hashino, feature character designs from Shigenori Soejima, and music composed by Shoji Meguro. 

From the looks of the trailer the setting appears to be returning to the big city, with a prominent shot of a Shibuya-style pedestrian scramble, during which a young, protagonist-looking high-schooler wearing a blazer-based school uniform experiences some good ol' frozen time and that telltale summoning fire. The color palette leans on red, black, and white (differing from Persona 3's blues and Persona 4's yellows), and all the text features the breaking of chains and shackles, reinforcing earlier taglines about "emancipation". 

Not especially fond of the title font, but that's just me nitpicking at this point. Watch the trailer and get hype!

Review: Persona 3 The Movie: #2 Midsummer Knight's Dream photo
Review: Persona 3 The Movie: #2 Midsummer Knight's Dream
by Elliot Gay

Despite its pacing problems and general lack of an overarching story, I enjoyed Persona 3 The Movie: #1 Spring of Birth. As far as animated film adaptations of long games go, I think it did a novel job of compressing hours of gameplay and story into about 90 minutes. The first film had the unlucky task of handling the least interesting part of Persona 3's tale, the intro hours, but director Noriaki Akitaya and the production team managed to shift the focus enough that it totally worked. Fortunately for new director Tomohisa Taguchi and for us viewers, the next chunk of Persona 3 is far more intriguing.

Picking up after the end of Spring of Birth, Midsummer Knight's Dream begins with the crew taking down yet another large Shadow, only now with the help of Mitsuru and her powerful ice Persona. With all the hard work they've put into their after school monster hunting activities, it's about time for some R&R. Summer vacation is in full swing, which means its time for an all expenses paid island trip Yuki, Junpei, and Aikhiko go on an adventure to pick up girls, things go poorly, and the three young men are left to soak in their own self-pity. This doesn't last too long, as Yuki notices a beautiful blonde-haired girl staring off into the ocean, dress flowing in the wind. Who is she, and where did she come from...?
