That being said our live performances will continue to evolve even more from here on out, I’ve got a few ideas up my sleeve for future events. Eventually we will have a chance to reveal some of our new songs, I hope then we will be able to give a show that will really make everyone think that “They’ve topped themselves again!

The upcoming event is described as the first major live event since PSL 2015 in February 2015.

    I’m looking forward to the Persona announcements, and I’m glad they’re already discussing preparations for Persona 6’s production.

      Persona 6 probably won’t be out or in development until Project Re Fantasy is finished.
