Persona has always been a PlayStation-exclusive franchise with the first few games appearing on the PS One. Eventually, Persona re-emerged as a franchise with Persona 3 on the PS2, which was quickly followed by Persona 4. While Persona 4 also released on the PS3, Persona 5 was to be the first real game in the series to be built specifically for the console. The 2015 release date currently relates to Japan though so stay tuned for more information on a Western release.
