Atlus says to not expect any new game announcements at the upcoming Persona Super Live P-Sound Wish 2022 concerts taking place next month on October 8 and 9 in Japan.
“There are no plans to announce new game titles at this live show,” Atlus clarifies on its Japanese website. “We aim for the best live performance that will satisfy everyone who can come and watch, and we are preparing with all our strength every day. Please look forward to it.”

These Persona live concert events have previously been used by Atlus as a platform to announce new titles. The first one was held in 2015 and debuted Persona 4: Dancing All Night. In 2017, Atlus revealed Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight and Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight, as well as Persona Q2, at the concert. During the 2019 concert, both Persona 5 Royal and Persona 5 Strikers were announced.
It seemed logical to assume that Atlus could make a new game announcement during this year’s concert as well. However, Atlus has now set expectations that there won’t be anything like that next month. It looks like fans will have to wait longer for something like a Persona 6 or Persona 5 Arena reveal.
Atlus is celebrating Persona’s 25th anniversary, and Atlus teased seven related announcements to commemorate it. Such announcements were a remaster of Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, as well as revealing that Persona 5 Royal, Persona 4 Golden, and Persona 3 Portable would be coming to new platforms, including Nintendo Switch, PC, and Xbox.
