Fans of the role-playing franchise would be happy to know that Atlus is bound to spill juicy information surrounding "Persona 5," Crossmap wrote. According to the outlet, the developer has confirmed that revelations on the title's gameplay and main character will be told in the event.

Supporting this notion is Katsura Hashino, director of the upcoming title. As told by Design & Trend, he has revealed in past interviews that "Persona 5" details would be out at the early turn of 2015. How cool is that?

At present, only speculations about the game's protagonist have been rampant. But fans were noted to call the lead guy "Potter," referring to the character's resemblance with the Boy-Who-Lived from J.K. Rowling's epic saga.

The release date of "Persona 5" remains unknown, so hopes are up that something about it comes out in the event. However, Crossmap went on to inform that the game is to arrive "somewhere in 2015."

More particularly, the game is scheduled to release "late Spring," BREATHEcast wrote. Either way, we'll have to see something before the calendar makes another turn.

"Persona 5" is slated to arrive for Sony's PS3 and PS4 in North America and Japan. For more information, check out the game's official site here.
