With Atlus’ Persona series celebrating its 25th anniversary this 2022, the company has already announced and shared a slew of celebratory activities. This includes themed pop-up cafes, new merchandise such as a Persona-themed mouthwash, and most recently, a concert that will be held in Japan. Though most of the collaborations seem to be happening in the series’ home country, Atlus shares that global fans of the RPG series will be able to watch the concert virtually, and that they can now purchase their tickets for the show.
Five months into 2022, and Atlus has not shared any major updates related to any of its Persona games. Fans have found the Persona 25th anniversary announcements lacking, especially considering that the series is celebrating such a large milestone. With Atlus finally giving fans around the world the chance to take part in the celebrations via the upcoming concert, this may be hinting that a big announcement will happen during the event in October.
According to the official English Twitter account of Atlus, tickets for the Persona Super Live P-Sound Wish 2022 ~ Crossing Paths ~ concert are now for sale via a dedicated website. Fans can choose between two performance dates; October 8 and 9. Tickets will cost 4,400 yen or around $35.00 USD, but the site will charge an extra 330 yen or $3.00 USD as part of its transaction fees. For fans of the Persona series music and soundtracks, this seems like a reasonable amount to gain access to a major event that is happening in another country.
In the official Japanese site of the Persona Super Live P-Sound Wish 2022 ~ Crossing Paths ~ concert, some details about who will be performing during the event have been shared. This includes Persona 5‘s Lyn Inaizumi, Persona 4‘s Shihoko Hirata, and Persona 3‘s Yumi Kawamura and rapper Lotus Juice. The site also states that there will be guest performances, however there has been no indication on who exactly will be part of the event. For those who purchase tickets to the livestream, they will gain access to an exclusive link a few days before the event, and will have access to the official recording until October 17.
When Atlus first announced the concert, Persona fans were quick to speculate that major announcements will be happening during the event. Atlus has a history of utilizing the live concert as its main channel to announce news about its upcoming titles. Hopefully the company does pull through, and that fans will finally get the Persona updates they have been waiting for.
