Gaming bars, cafes and restaurants seem to pop up everywhere in Japan with the more recent one being the Square Enix cafe in Akihabara. Today we hear that a brand new one has opened just after the release of a new game in the series.
That game is Persona 5 and the new Persona cafe has just newly opened in downtown Shibuya. Both Final Fantasy XV and Persona 5 were supposed to compete against each other but a delay to FF XV sees Persona 5 having the current stand of big releases all to itself.
The cafe is a collaboration between developer Atlus and Pasela, a restaurant operator. Now let’s have a look the food that’s on offer.
Like all the awesome things in Japan, the bar is only open for a limited time starting with today, October 14 until November 23rd. If you want to give it a look, here’s the all important information:
Persona is a hugely popular series all over the world and for good reason. Atlus have crafted an amazing RPG world and filled it with fantastic action and lovable characters. So it’s with anticipation that I recently saw the newly launched website for Persona 5. Not much is on there but the obligatory countdown clock, until launch or until the final website launches remains to be seen.
The game is due to hit Japan late 2016 with a release for the West as well, unfortunately no date on that as yet. They have announced that it’ll be released for both the PS3 the PS4 systems.
Developer Atlus have taken the covers of a new teaser site which features a countdown and lists a few cities in Japan. The countdown will finish on November 24 at 20:00 and the cities listed are Nagoya, Fukuoka, Tokyo, Osaka, Sapporo and Sendai. The tease comes in the form of a logo on the page next to the Atlus logo which is the P-Studio logo, used by the Atlus Persona team.
Could the reveal in November be a new Persona game then? We’ll keep you posted but if you want to check out the site for yourself, click right on here.
