Today's Persona 4 news starts off fairly innocent and then spirals out of control. We know that Atlus is teasing some Persona news per their teaser site with three empty boxes and a November 24 countdown date. Today that site was updated so that if the boxes are clicked pictures of Persona 4's Teddie appear making faces. Aha! Persona 4 news! Yet little did we know what this rabbit hole would lead to.
Suddenly the internet realizes we've got Persona 4 news of some sort on the way, right? That is, if they're teasing Teddie related news it has to be Persona 4 related. The Google searches go out and what do they find? A voice actress' website referencing two different unannounced Persona 4 projects. Yes, according to her site she has worked on both Persona 4 Vol. 2 and Persona 4 Golden 2. Whoa, whoa, whoa.
The voice actress, named Karen Strassman, has previous work on Persona 4, Golden and Arena. That is to say that if she says she has been working on these... sequels? Then it's pretty legitimate.
Official announcements should be coming on November 24, but we'll go in having a big hint that Persona 4 Vol. 2 and Persona 4 Golden 2 will be a part of the event. However, the teaser site has three boxes. Should we expect three announcements? Is there another Persona 4 title coming down the pipeline? Should we trust these leaks in the first place? Ahh, just give me the Persona already, Atlus.
