Persona 5 to release in North America February 2017
Atlus announced today that Persona 5 will be made available in North America on February 14, 2017.
Originally announced in 2013 with a potential release in 2014, Persona 5’s release date was then pushed it up to 2016 at the Tokyo Game Show last year. The Japanese release date is now scheduled for September 15.
Persona 5, a game about internal and external conflicts within a group of high school students who double as Phantom Thieves at night. The group, which is made up of the protagonist and a band of fellow citizens he meets in the game’s story, tries to see the world how modern society does—through the masks that hide inner vulnerability.
Atlus revealed last month that Persona 5 would be released in Japan with a 20th anniversary Collector’s Edition, featuring music from Persona 1-5, an art book, and special DLC.
The standard edition of Persona 5 will be $59.99 on PlayStation 4 and $49.99 on PlayStation 3. PS4 customers who pre-order will receive a limited Steelbook launch edition at no additional cost.
Atlus confirmed Monday that Persona 5 will be at E3, along with character designer Shigenori Soejima and a limited edition Morgana hat giveaway.
