Persona 5 Release Date Announced

Persona 5 Release Date

Atlus announced the Persona 5 release date for North America is Feb 14, 2017.

Persona 5 was officially announced in November of 2013 and originally planned for a release in the winter of 2014 for PS3. In May a glimmer of hope appeared in the form of a Japanese release date on Sep. 15. However, other regions began to wonder if the highly anticipated title would slip past yet another year. Well, those fears can now be confirmed.

The game now moves to the shortlist of other titles that have been confirmed for an early 2017 release, Sony’s Horizon Zero Dawn being another that releases in February. Persona 5 will still be releasing for both PS4 and PS3, indicating Atlus predicts an audience for the game remains on Sony’s last gen console.

A “Take Your Heart” premium edition of Persona 5 was also announced, perfect for the game’s release on Valentine’s Day. The edition includes a 64-page hardcover art book, a 4-inch plush figurine of Morgana, a collectible SteelBook case, a soundtrack CD, and a full size school bag adorned with the Shujin Academy crest. The edition will retail for $89.99. A launch version of the game for PS4 will include the same SteelBook and retail for $59.99. The “Take Your Heart” premium edition is exclusive to the PS4 version of Persona 5. PS3 owners get the game in regular packaging for $49.99.

Quick Take

In Japan, Persona 5 will be competing with the September release of Final Fantasy 15. It definitely shows Atlus’ confidence in the game. But it’s a real shame that other parts of the world won’t get a chance to play it until nearly half a year later. Maybe we can blame exhaustive localization or Valentine’s Day marketing. If anything, there’s finally a light at the end of a tunnel Persona fans have been going down for several years.
