Atlus announced earlier today that a Persona 5 anime is on its way. Named Persona 5 The Animation, the anime is being produced by Atlus as well as the animation studio A-1 Pictures.

Persona 5 The Animation will release in Japan by 2018, and it's unclear whether it will eventually be localized or dubbed for Western audiences.

The Persona franchise has received multiple anime adaptations in the past, including a film series for Persona 3 and two TV series adaptations for Persona 4. Additionally, Persona 5 received a 30-minute anime titled The Daybreakers before the game's launch. It is currently streaming on Crunchyroll.

Persona 5 released earlier this year in North America for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. You can read our review here, along with our tips guide which shows you how to make an incredibly powerful persona.
