[Rumor] Persona Q 2 Announcement Imminent, Official Domain Name on Atlus Nameservers [Update]

Update (2017-07-28): The “PQ2.JP” domain now returns an HTTP 403 Forbidden status instead of redirecting to the Persona Channel, meaning that the administrators have prevented public access to the website.


On April 20th, it had been discovered that Atlus registered a number of official Persona series related domain names, including “PQ2.JP,” hinting at a planned sequel to the Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth dungeon crawler spin-off, released for the 3DS in 2014.

The aforementioned domain name was updated on July 27, 2017:

What the update consists of is that the domain, previously held for squatting purposes on Onamae nameservers as a landing page, has been moved to Atlus nameservers which the company uses for their official websites.

Currently, pq2.jp redirects to the Persona Channel website. The domain currently holds the same IP address that p-atlus.jp has, a domain which also redirects to the Persona Channel. What this means is that the PQ2.JP domain currently shares directories with P-ATLUS.JP while it is being properly set up.

So pq2.jp/p4d will redirect to the official Persona 4: Dancing All Night website. This is an indication that, in the end, the official website for a Persona Q 2 might end up being “p-atlus.jp/pq2.”

February 2017 Survey

Atlus released a consumer survey in February 2017, where they asked fans if they would be interested in the following titles, including a follow-up to Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth:

Q53: Please select all that applies for proposed Persona series titles below.

The games are the following:

  1. “Persona 2: Innocent Sin / Eternal Punishment” HD console remake
  2. Completely new “Persona 6”
  3. “Persona 5” dance game (sound action)
  4. New Persona fighting game for “Persona 5” [Kazuhisa Wada previously stated that he would definitely want to make Persona 5 fighting game]
  5. “Persona 3” HD console remake
  6. “Persona 1” HD console remake
  7. “Persona” series board game
  8. “Persona” series online game

  10. “Persona 5” with added scenarios and new elements
  11. Continuation of “Persona Q” and remake to other platforms
  12. “Persona 3” dance game (sound action) [Kazuhisa Wada previously stated that they would consider a Persona 3 dancing game if Persona 4: Dancing All Night did well]

Persona Super Live P-Sound Bomb!!!! 2017

This update has happened in the wake of the announcement that there will be two live streams for the upcoming Persona series concert on August 2nd: “Persona Super Live P-Sound Bomb!!!! 2017: Witness the Harbor’s Crime.”

Series composer Shoji Meguro previously teased, in April 2017, that there would be announcements made at the concert.

Persona 5 Domain Name

A similar situation occurred with the official Persona 5 domain name in 2013. It was registered by Index Corporation on June 25, 2013, and was hosted on Onamae nameservers, leading to their landing page. Shortly before the November 24, 2013 live stream where Persona 5 was announced, the domain was moved to Atlus nameservers.

    Yeeeey one more good soundtrack….I don’t like Persona Q sadly :/

    • Espurr Muffin

      Same for me a first person grid based drpg is just a specific combination that I really dislike for some reason

  • emodively

    *hhhnnnnnngggggggg* 2019 incoming.

  • Mastermind


    • Man so many VA’s are going to be replaced ..

    • LunarD3ATH

      I can’t imagine how they’d pull it off considering where they left off and the fate of the P3 cast, but I too would like Persona 3’s cast to be included.

  • Strain42

    The big question I have though is…3DS or Switch? Or maybe throw it all out the window and just have it on PS4 or Vita. Who can say?

    • Carlos Hernadez Rios

      Knowing then is gona be 3DS only

      • Strain42

        I’m figuring 3DS as well, but honestly after hearing that Pokemon is getting a mainline installment on Switch at some point, nothing would surprise me at this point :P

        • Carlos Hernadez Rios

          I hope too

      • Zeiji-K

        You guys know that the Switch replaces the 3DS? I gurantee you there are no completly new games coming for it. only ones that already were in development for 1-2 years before the Switched launched

    • LunarD3ATH

      Almost certainly 3DS. It’s possible it’ll be on Switch, because Atlus has definitely done that before (P3P on PSP and then P4 Golden on Vita) with handhelds.

      I hope it’s on 3DS, personally. Not interested in a Switch right now and this won’t be enough to push me into it. I’d rather have both PQ games on my favorite handheld.

      • Strain42

        I’m guessing 3DS as well, but like I said below…having the knowledge that there’s gonna be a mainline Pokemon game on the Switch, it wouldn’t surprise me, ya know?

  • DivineLion

    looking at the list, I definitely want to see a HD console remake of Persona 2 IS/EP
