Persona 5 S teaser page is promising something new for fans of one of ATLUS' flagship role-playing game titles. The teaser page boasts a simple image (seen above) with a notice that more information will be released on Thursday, April 25, 2019.

Of course, there's a little more to the story than that. Siliconera reports that the web page's source code contains a hidden message within. Siliconera has translated the text thusly:

Letter of Notice April 25, 2019. We’ll change the world’s perception with the new Phantom Thieves. We move for the voices calling for satisfaction. We’ll once again take your heart at the Ryogoku Kokugikan.
Of course, the question to ask is what exactly Persona 5 S is. We already know that Persona 5 R (also known as Persona 5 The Royal) is in production, although details on that particular title have been relatively light. Persona 5 The Royal appears to be an enhanced version of the game similar to Persona 4 Golden and promises the addition of a new character.

At the moment, Persona 5 is exclusive to the PlayStation ecosystem and an updated version of the game is also making its way to the PlayStation 4. That makes speculating about the nature of Persona 5 S a little bit easier. One possibility is that it stands for Persona 5 Switch and will be the first game from the franchise to make it to Nintendo's handheld hybrid console. The title may also mean Persona 5 Smartphone and be a mobile venture instead. As always, there's a third option that is neither of these things and something that we don't expect at all.

We don't have much else in the way of details on Persona 5 S. Fingers crossed that we'll be hearing something soon. Personally, I just hope that we get the games on PC someday.


What do you think Persona 5 S is? Do you think the game will be coming to the Nintendo Switch or smartphones? Would you want to play the Persona games on PC? Let us know in the comments below!
