Persona 5 Western Release Date Revealed
Atlus has officially announced that Persona 5 will be heading to North America on February 14, 2017.
The Japanese version is still on track to release this September, but it is not uncommon for games to need extra time for translation. After all, the Persona games are generally huge and therefore, there will be a lot of work for the localization team.
The game will be available for PS4 as well as PS3. Those that pre-order the PS4 version will get a day one copy of the game in a steelbook case for free. In addition to the regular version, there will also be a "Take Your Heart" edition which will include the steelbook case, a school bag, a 64-page art book, a CD soundtrack, and a 4-inch Morgana plush. The "Take Your Heart" edition will cost $89.99. Below is a picture of the contents included in the deluxe edition.
Originally announced in 2013 for a late 2014 release, the game was later delayed to 2016. Now players in North America will have to wait until 2017 to play Persona 5.
