New Persona Commercial Gives Persona 2 Vibes (It’s Not Actually Persona 2, Don’t Get Excited)

Atlus Japan has shared a new commercial for the Persona series featuring Haruna Kawaguchi and Jun Shison. This promotional video is quite standout, with merged songs from various entries of the franchise alongside dramatic imagery.

Humorously, the beginning of the video says “PERSONA IS,” which some fans may interpret as shorthand for Persona 2: Innocent Sin, the first entry of the Persona 2 duology. Of course, it’s not actually referring to Persona 2, but the commercial does have interesting framing that feels somewhat evocative of the tone of Persona 2, particularly the opening movies.

The video’s description reads as follows, translated by our team’s Ryuji:

“A brand new commercial for the Persona series starring Haruna Kawaguchi and Jun Shison, who have been appointed as official ambassadors of the series.

The sensitive performances of the two actors, who express how the anxiety and loneliness that everyone has, has turned into hope and salvation when they meet their friends, and the famous songs from the Persona series are beautifully linked to each other in this dramatic performance.”

Persona 3 Reload will launch on February 2, 2024, for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Windows, and Steam.
