Atlus announced the production of a Persona 5 anime today. Called Persona 5 the Animation, Atlus is once again partnering with A-1 Pictures to produce an animated series with a planned 2018 air date.
The anime will have the same Japanese voice cast from the game and the anime already has a brief teaser, although it's currently region-locked on YouTube. Luckily Anime News Network posted the teaser on DailyMotion, which you can see below.
Since Persona 5 came out in the west this year (the game came out in Japan in 2016), it's received critical acclaim, ending up on our list of Editor's Choice for best PlayStation 4 games. We even loved the way it tackled contemporary problems through in-game social commentary.
There's no word yet on whether or not the Persona 5 anime will be localized in the west, though if it's anything like the game we'll have to wait a year for any localization.
