Atlus has released an extensive survey in which they asked for fans opinions on a lot of subjects, including their platform preference for future projects like Persona 6.
The questionnaire is fully in Japanese, but Dualshockers‘ report indicates that the survey starts with whether fans would like a new Persona board game, a fighting game, an online RPG, a strategy RPG, an action RPG, a shooter, or they’d prefer to skip straight to Persona 6.
For each of those options, gamers are also asked which platform they’d like to see the game appear on. The list of options includes PS4, Switch, PC, PlayStation VR, PS Vita, 3DS, Smartphones, as well as a “something else” option.
And then, the survey continues by asking whether fans would enjoy a remake of one of the developer’s many games including the Devil Survivor and Devil Summoner series, the Etrian Odyssey series, the Digital Devil Saga series, the numbered Shin Megami Tensei titles, and the whole Persona series. For all of those options, the preferred platform is also requested. So you can basically go fantasy shopping with this survey.
The next question asks whether we’d like to see spin-off games developed by other studios. The options are Soul Hackers, Devil Summoner, Devil Survivor, the Persona fighting games, the Persona dancing games, Persona Q, Etrian Odyssey, the main Persona series, and the Shin Megami Tensei series.
As Dualshockers reports, “another one inquires on whether we’d like Atlus to focus on developing a completely new IP, a mainline numbered game of their main series, a spin-off of their main series, a remake of past games, a port of already-released games to new consoles, non-gaming content like anime, or collaborations with other companies.”
And that still isn’t everything. The survey also asks which platforms players would like to see the next mainline titles in the Persona, Shin Megami Tensei, and Etrian Odyssey series appear on. That’s the last serious question. The actual last question is “whether you believe in the Phantom Thieves or not. I’m not kidding.”
It’s awesome to see that Atlus are asking for player feedback, especially with so much detail. It goes a long way to keep players happy when you give them a chance to give their opinions. It’s also a great way to gague interest in possible future projects.
As a bonus, the survey also includes some pieces of lovely artwork of the upcoming game by Studio Zero code-named Project Re Fantasy.
