Persona 5 is the latest franchise to get a 2.5D stage play in Japan. Its official title is Persona 5 the Stage. And now, the play has launched an official Twitter account, as well as an official website. Both pages reveal a new key visual featuring the protagonist, also known as Joker. Hiroki Ono is playing him, though it still isn’t clear if the adaptation will be following the anime adaptation’s naming, Ren Amamiya, or the manga’s, which is Akira Kurusu. It might also be possible if they give him a new name entirely as well.
The play is scheduled to run in December. Its first run will be from December 13-15 at Osaka’s Hotel Mielparque Theater. They will then transfer to Tokyo’s The Galaxy Theater from December 19-29, 2019.
So far, not much is known about the play yet, though expect the staff to reveal more details in the days to c0me.
