First, we have an anime. Then, we have an enhanced port of Persona 4 heading to the Playstation Vita. Now, we have more Persona media to announce as there are two more games in the franchise being developed.

The first is Persona 4: Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena (which is the screenshot above). It is a sequel to Persona 4, set two months after the game. It is a fighting game being developed by the team behind BlazBlue. The premise is a fighting tournament hosted by Teddie, a resident of the TV world. So far, Yosuke, Chi and Yu (the nameless protagonist in the original game, name taken from anime) have been revealed. Aiges from Persona 3 was also confirmed. He will be joined by other Persona 3 characters. The game will be released for the arcades in Spring 2012 before making appearances on consoles later in the same year.

The second game isn’t really an announcement as such but more of a confirmation. Persona 5 is currently in the early stages of development and the regular Persona team will be fronting the development. Regulars Katsura Hashino and Shoji Meguro will be director and composer of both games respectively. Shigenori Soejima will be character designer on Persona 5. Hashino revealed that the game will have new elements, comparing the the nature of change to that of Persona 3, when it introduced dating-sim elements to the series. It will also be built around an internal HD engine, a first for the team. Although there was no platform announced, expect the game to make an appearance on the Playstation 3.

So, some extra Persona news. Must be a good day to be a Persona fan. What do you guys think? Is the Persona fighting game what you’re looking for? Or is the new entry to the main series more your cup of tea? Give us you opinion below.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
