Characters 3, 4, and 5 were blue, yellow, and red, and it looks like character 6 will be green

The Persona series is known for its bold art direction, with each modern game featuring its own distinct style, and now a leak appears to confirm a wild fan theory based on what Persona 6 will look like.

Midori, a well-known leaker from Persona developer Atlus, posted on x/twitter That “the color theme for Persona 6 is green”. This compares to Persona 3 which has a blue theme, Persona 4 which has a yellow theme, and Persona 5 which has a red theme.

Although this may be insignificant at first glance, this leak, if true, also confirms the wild theory that Persona fans have been swirling around for the past couple of years.

The artwork was released as part of the franchise's 25th anniversary celebration in 2022, showing all of the character's heroes standing in front of a graffiti wall. The framing of the figures has them standing slightly off-centre, and instead space for another figure is taken up by a tub of green paint even though the wall has very little green.

This sparked a fan theory that Persona 6, which Atlus hasn't officially said a word about, will have a green art style. “Bottom Left: Persona 6 color scheme?” Pr0Gam3rM4n asked in 2022 Reddit Post about the artwork. “Green Bucket is my favorite Persona hero,” said TheRidiculousOtaku, to which Senai replied: “Green main color has been confirmed for Persona 6.”

Fast forward to today, and the top comment is on A Reddit The topic discussing Midori's X/Twitter post is: “The paint bucket theory was correct.” Other users also participated. “We won, Bucket Bros,” Kotouu wrote.

Atlus last released a main Persona game in 2016 with Persona 5 but has kept the franchise busy elsewhere with all sorts of remakes and spin-offs. Persona 3 Reload, a remake of the 2006 original, was the latest, arriving on February 2 on PlayStation 4, 5, Xbox One, Series X and S, and PC. A Nintendo Switch version hasn't been announced yet, though Persona 3 Reload game director Takuya Yamaguchi said it's not out of the question.

In our 9/10 review, IGN said: “With an excellent visual overhaul and countless small but impactful changes, Persona 3 Reload tells a timeless story of tragedy and hope with searing emotional sincerity.”
