Morgana announced titles such as Trinity Soul, Persona 4, Persona 4 Golden, and Persona 5, and the Persona 3 movie. Also in addition to this it has been announced that a Special Orchestral Concert based on the game’s music will be taking place at the Tokyo Opera City Hall on November 21st.
Adding to that, vocalist Lyn from Persona 5 will host a host a “mini concert” during Sega’s event at this year’s upcoming Tokyo Game Show.
The powerful franchise has come a long way. With the first game originally a spin-off from the hit Megami Tensai video game series, it became a franchise juggernaut. With six highly successful main entries the franchise has helped paved the way for today’s era in modern RPGs. Oh that is also including the franchise’s multiple spin-off games that also has been successful.
The series itself has sold more than 15 Million Copies worldwide and is still going strong.
