Persona fans aren’t going to have to wait long.

Atlus just updated the official page for its anticipated role-playing game, Persona 5, and the publisher confirms that the game is coming out this year for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.

The Persona series features Japanese teenagers who battle demonic shadows with the help of powerful creatures, called Personas. Persona 4 and Persona 3 were smash hits on the PlayStation 2, and Persona 4 Golden did well on the Vita as well.
