Persona 5 Delayed to April


Persona 5, which launched in Japan in September, will not be releasing in the US until April.

Those of you relying on Persona 5 as a Valentine’s Day date are sadly out of luck – the game’s US release has been delayed to April 4, 2017, John Hardin, PR Manager at Atlus, announced in a post on PlayStation’s blog today.

The game was originally scheduled for release in 2014, but finally released in Japan this past September.

In an effort to soften the blow, Hardin says that the game will have dual audio for both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.

“We’re including it as DLC for logistical reasons, but it will be free, for forever,” Hardin writes.” People have been asking for this since P5 was announced, and through herculean effort from just about every division of Atlus, we managed to arrange this. This was something we especially wanted to do for the Atlus Faithful, the ones who still appreciate our English dubs and respect all the effort we put into localizing. You all are the reason we get to do the jobs we do, so we’ve been fighting for this for a long while, and we are glad we can make this happen for all of those who support us and love our games.”
