Persona 5 Western Released Delayed Until April


In rather disappointing style ATLUS, along with publisher Deep Silver, revealed during a live-streaming that the western release of Persona 5 has had to be pushed back until the 4th April 2016.

Detailed specifics surrounding the release date alteration were not given; however by way of apology ATLUS, in conjunction with Deep Silver, will release a Japanese voice-over add-on track on the same day that the game is launched. This particular add-on will unlock ‘Dual-Audio’ support for the game, a feature which seems to be absent from most Persona JPRG titles, and allow fans to either play the game in English or Japanese.

In addition to the stream being broadcast, of which an extensive amount of English localised gameplay was shown, Deep Silver have released a new trailer which illustrates the game mechanics of Persona 5 and how to use them. For the time being at least Persona 5, along with it’s Collector’s Edition and Day One Variations, will be released on the 4th April 2016 for the PS4 and PS3 within the UK, Europe and America.
