Persona 5 Delayed to April 4th in the West
Despair not! There are some silver linings.
11.16.16 - 4:31 PM

Sad news, RPG Fans: Persona 5 has been delayed again, this time to April 4th, 2017. Atlus wants to make sure the game is in the best possible state for its Western release, hence the delay from its earlier February release date. To make up for this, Persona 5 will launch alongside free Japanese voice-over DLC, with English voice acting already being present on-disc. Fans will also get the chance to experience the game at PlayStation Experience on December 3rd and 4th, the first time the game will be playable in English. And if you really want to feel better about the delay, here's a better look at the "Take Your Heart" premium edition from the recently updated Persona 5 website, and there's a free Ryuji Sakamoto dynamic theme and new avatars available on the PlayStation Store (for a limited time). So... much... swag...

Atlus has also been busy releasing new trailers for Persona 5, including two new character trailers for Makoto and Yusuke. There's also an English trailer that looks at how the Phantom Thieves balance their... phantom thievery with their regular, day-to-day lives. Check those out below, and as always, stay tuned to RPGFan for more information.
