Persona 5 delayed, will get dual audio in North America


Your wallet may be able to breath easier when it comes to mentioning February, but probably not for the reason you want. As Atlus announced yesterday that their highly anticipated RPG Persona 5 will be pushed from its original February 14th 2017 release to April 4th 2017.

For the delay, Atlus has confirmed that Persona 5 will receive some free DLC in the form of dual language audio, which the game originally was not going to launch with. To (unintentionally) make the wait more difficult, Atlus showed off three new trailers for the game, including new character (Yusuke Kitagawa and Makoto Niijima) trailers and an interview with Makoto voice actress, Cherami Leigh.

Finally the $89.99 USD ($109.99 CDN) “Take your Heart” edition has been updated with some new artwork. The bundle will come with a school bag, 4 inch Morgana plush, Steelbook case, 64 Page Artbook and the ever important Persona 5 Soundtrack.

Persona 5 is still stated for release on PS3 and PS4 when it finally lands in North America in April, however Japanese audiences are currently enjoying the game since Mid-September, with reviews being extremely positive.
