After what feels like an eternity, Atlus has officially revealed that Persona 5 is in full development and headed exclusively to PS3.
We'll likely have to wait a while for the next iteration of the legendary JRPG series to arrive on UK shores, mind, considering that it's slated to release next Winter in Japan. Atlus games tend to take an age to secure European distribution. Perhaps we won't have to put next-gen on hold after all.
This move is highly reminiscent of Persona 4 releasing on PS2 instead of PS3 - Atlus doesn't play by anyone else's rules. Hopefully Sony will have brought Gaikai games streaming to European PS4s by 2015...
