Atlus May Be Planning Persona 5 Spinoffs

Atlus registers 9 new Persona-related domains that could point to spinoff titles

Persona Central reported today that Atlus has registered several new domain names related to the Persona series. Judging from the names of some of these domains, it seems that the developer could once again be planning to release a number of offshoot titles for the latest entry in their long-running RPG franchise.

The domains were registered through RyusOffice, a marketing firm that’s worked with Atlus in the past for Persona-related projects. The recently-registered domains include P5D.jpP5U.jp P5AG.jpP5R.jpPersona-Dance.jp, PQ2.jp, Persona8.jp, Persona9.jp and Persona10.jp.

Mind you, it’s not particularly surprising that Atlus would secure the domains numbered entries in the series. Still, some of the other domains are much, much more intriguing. For example, PQ2 seems like it could be alluding to a sequel to the 3DS dungeon-crawler Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth. While Persona Dance seems likely to be a sequel to Atlus’ 2015 Vita title Persona 4: Dancing All Night (read our review here). And this may be a shot in the dark, but Persona 5: AG could be Another Golden, alluding to a potential portable release for Persona 5, possibly on the Nintendo Switch. Of course, that’s just speculation.  In any case, we’re very excited to see what’s in store for the Phantom Thieves in the years to come.

So, do you think we’ll be seeing the cast of Persona 5 embarking on some dance-offs or dungeon-crawling? If you played the Persona 4 offshoots, what did you think of them? As always, we’d love to hear what you think. Be sure to sound off in the comments below. Additionally, check out our review of Persona 5 here.
