Atlus and A-1 Pictures are teaming up to release Persona 5: The Animation – The Day Breakers in 2018.
The anime is based on Persona 5 which released in Japan last September and this April in the United States after years of development and delays.
Persona 5: The Animation will be a television series. Most of the game’s original Japanese voice cast will reprise their roles in the series. Jun Fukuyama is voicing the unnamed protagonist. A-1 Pictures previously helped work on Persona 4: The Golden Animation, based off the Persona 4 remake for the PlayStation Vita.
Persona 5 put players in the role of an unnamed teenager that was sent away from his home after being framed for an assault. After being transferred to Shujin Academy the protagonist’s past follows him around but he eventually befriends other students and characters to form a team of vigilantes. This group aims to rid the city of evil adults by using the power of Personas.
While no announcement has been made about an English version of the anime, it will likely be released at some point in the future.
