New Studio Formed from Persona 5 Development Staff; Announces New Game
Atlus announced a new studio has been formed within the company. Studio Zero is at least partially made up of the team that made Persona 5 and they have revealed that they are working on an unnamed fantasy RPG. Katsura Hashino, director of Persona 3, 4, and 5, is confirmed to be the director for this game, and Shigenori Soejima is doing the artwork.
I am beyond excited for this. I don’t just want Persona in a fantasy setting, however, but Persona Team has shown that they can tell compelling stories without social links before in Catherine. I’m not sure if this is completely replacing Persona Team or if this is effectively just a renaming to allow this team to work on things other than Persona.
