I can't take it anymore! Persona 5 might be on PS3!

   0
I saw this earlier while trawling for news to post on Jtor, but I didn't want to go "SQUEEE OMG" for as long as possible, lest my hopes get up.

But I can't take it anymore!

*SQUEEE OMG HOPES UP*

Persona 5 might be coming on the PS3, might be an exclusive!

I CAN'T STRESS ENOUGH THAT THESE ARE RUMORS. BUT RUMORS ARE WHAT C-BLOGS ARE FOR, SO YEAH.

A report placed on 7rush, a pachinko site covering the announcement of the new MegaTen-themed pachinko machine, slipped the following note into the last paragraph:



A googlefish translation is as follows:

"Which will be announced at the Consumer Playstation3 Persona 4, with the software. Around MEGATENBUMU" bound to stir up!"

SUPER WEIRD UPDATE: Inputting "ペルソナ5" into googlefish spits out "Persona 4." LOL WUT?!

Most interesting is the use of the characters "専用" right after "Playstation 3", which translate as "exclusive".

Siliconera notes that this is also what happened with Persona 4 and the PS2, with the mention having been included in a Bloomberg financial report.

Keep in mind that there were other media at the event, including Dengeki Online, who made no mention. Chances are that this is just a mistake and will be quietly removed. It could also be an accident, and actually referring to "Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey", the new MegaTen game. The paragraph in the report also mentions (via googlefish) "October 8", and "10.08" was in the leaked image hacked out of the Strange Journey teaser site. Then again, the report specifically states "Persona 5". Who knows? It's all positive anyway, be it new Persona or new MegaTen!

A Persona sequel is inevitable given the huge success, and a current-gen appearance of some kind of MegaTen game is likely, given that P4 was pretty much the PS2's swan song. Persona basically made the MegaTen games in the western market. Sure, Nocturne and Digital Devil Saga and Devil Summoner are all great, but Persona 3 was where the cash started flowing in.

Now, have a .gif while I wipe the jizz off my keyboard.
