Atlus reveals a teaser for Persona 5 R, apparently coming to PS4 in March 2019.

What is Persona 5 R?

It appears that a new Persona 5 project is in the works. The game in question is Persona 5 R, whose teaser appeared yesterday on the official YouTube channel of Atlus, the company responsible for the development of this well-known jRPG franchise. The short 30-second footage doesn't reveal much, but you can see the PlayStation logo and the date: 2019.3 (which may suggest a March release).

What's puzzling is that at some point you can also see the phrase "new projects" appear on billboards does this mean that P5R is not the only unpocoming project connected with the latest installment of the popular jRPG cycle? Perhaps we'll get a number of spin-offs in the vein of Persona Dancing (some players expect Persona 5 R to be a racing game), or an upgraded version of Persona 4 Golden for PlayStation Vita. Or maybe Atlus decided to follow the path taken by Square Enix with Final Fantasy XIII and create a continuation of Joker's story?

Persona 5 debuted in September 2016 on PlayStation 3 (Japan only) and PlayStation 4 (an Xbox 360 version was also planned, but eventually cancelled).
