Persona 5 has been a hit with many players still struggling to find the time to get through the time vortex that is the main campaign. It seems that the company that Atlus uses to register their domains, Ryu’s Office, has been purchasing all kinds of Persona and Persona 5 related domains.
The domains that Ryu’s Office are as follows:
The above websites were all registered on the 18th of April and while there isn’t any more information about what each of them will contain there are some hints that can be gleaned from previous trends in the Persona series.
- P3D.jp, P5D.jp, and Persona-Dance.jp could all be attributed to the dancing spin Persona 4 Dancing All Night.
- P5U.jp could be a continuation of the anime fighting game Persona 4 Arena or Ultimax with updated rosters with all of the Persona 5 cast.
- P5AG.jp could be for Persona 5 what P4G or Persona 4 Golden was for Persona 4, and Persona 3 FES was for Persona 3, an updated re-release.
- PQ2.jp is most likely a sequel to Persona Q: Shadows of the Labyrinth, a crossover title combining the cast of Persona 3 and 4 into a separate pocket dimension.
The only title in this list that doesn’t really have any tie in naming convention to a previous Persona game would be P5R.jp, many are theorizing that it would be a racing game but at the moment it is only a guess.
While not likely for the foreseeable future domains were also registered for Persona titles numbered 8 through 10. With the franchise becoming so much more popular seeing so many spin-off titles clearly shows Atlus’ choice to continue supporting their franchise well into the future, or at least making sure that no one else bus the domains.
What do you think of all these potential Persona 5 spin-off titles being made? What do you think the R in P5R stands for? What style game would you most like to see the cast of P5 appearing in?
