During the ongoing “Business Trip! Persona Channel TOKYO GAME SHOW 2015” a new trailer for Persona 5 was shown, announcing its delay to Summer 2016.
What? Why? It had to launch end of 2015 I think.
fans assumed it will be 2016 from the start but Atlus insisted it will still come out 2015 way to disappoint the fans Atlus.
@MichaelLito79 damage control what? I did say it was disappointing news one game off the list, still about half a dozen still to come 2015 (now this is damage control LOL)
this game looks quite good actually and i am a little upset at myself for not taking the time to play previous games. @NewMonday "one game off the list, still about half a dozen still to come 2015 (now this is damage control LOL)" can you list the ps4 games still to come this year with a CONFIRMED release date? thanks
@moldybread Well, you have more than enough time to play them now! xD
@moldybread as far as PS4 exclusives: Dragon Quest Heroes Tales of Zestiria these are games I want the most, they are already out in Japan have pre-orders open with box art and collector editions and all so should a safe bet. other exclusives: Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance Sword Art Online: Lost Song Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair Samurai Warriors 4-II don't follow their situation so don't know if they will pull a Persona5
@moldybread You won't get a CONFIRMED release date, lol! The likes of NewMonday will never own up to being wrong. You say big triple A games galore, they come back with fps multiplat games with exclusive DLCs. You say multiplats they comeback with exclusive games.
@NewMonday no wonder you are not taken seriously, you start fanboy wars with list of games on PS4 without having concrete dates and you go around knocking the competitor's games. Then you have the nerve to tell others there are still a half a dozen games and you still can't give dates with even more damage control by saying you dont follow the games. I have a question for you if you don't follow the games why are you going around creating list and knocking the competition and even more so my second question is why are you praising the games as must have games when you don't follow and I assume you never played. Smh again.
SEGA, Persona 5, PS VITA, probably?
@MichaelLito79 You have no idea what you are talking about, if you did you would know the 2015 was official from Atlus, if you follow Persona 5 news you would know fans asked about the exact release day in the west and that Atlus insisted again the game would be released 2016 in the west. All the game dates I posted are official, as official as Halo5 release date, didn't you guys name drop Quantum Break for 2014, 2015 and now 2016 so give me a break (pun intended), and don't go mentioning ReCore or Scalebound for 2016 unless they go gold. And would you kindly link the comment wher I downplayed competition games? or STFU please
@NewMonday you forgot to mention uncharted collection.
You're kidding right New Monday? N4G Fans have been hyping and adding this game to the "ps4 lists" for the upcoming holiday launch for PS4. This really sux! I was hoping to add this game to the holiday list of games to play before the year is up.
@gangsta_red maybe in this place, but I follow the game community in several places like twitter and NeoGAF, that second Atlus confirmation was reported on NeoGAF and linked directly to the article with the official source from Atlus. this was it:"Atlus USA: We Can Confirm Persona 5 Is Launching In North America in 2015" http://www.neogaf.com/forum...
Eh, it's not that big of a deal guys, we still hadn't seen hardly any of it, by the time September rolled around you had to assume it was AT BEST a 50/50 chance of actually making it out in 2015 (though I've personally had greater doubts than that). There are a LOT of really great Japanese games coming out the rest of this year and early 2016, you've got Disgaea 5, Dragon Quest Heroes, Tales games, etc. to tide you over. This game will be worth the wait!
This is pretty sad actually.
Does that mean the US version going to be delayed too :(
Obviously, the Japanese audience comes first for a JRPG like Persona. I'd be shocked if it's otherwise. .
I wouldn't be so sure... 😏
But Atlus US kept confirming an 2015 release. They shouldnt if they wasnt sure :(
^^^ You really think Atlus was forced to make such claims? Think about it, and yes these games always comes out in Japan first unless they release some different version for US as they usually do.
b...but its coming in the west in 2015. Poor, poor Japanese...they don't get to play it before us =) (starts sobbing uncontrollably) Now we wait.
Hate to be that guy to break the bad news guys..but looks like the delayed affects all territories as this was posted on the official Atlus twitter page. https://mobile.twitter.com/... Atlus U.S.A., Inc.–Verified account @AtlusUSA "Persona 5 will release in 2016 exclusively on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in Japan and the Americas"
Holy shit, greatness will keep waiting, lol. Hope Disgaea 5 does not get delayed, if it does my PS4 in going to keep gathering dust until March.
You aren't getting anything until then? Seriously?
uncharted is my next ps4 game , now that it seems persona and no mans sky aren't coming this year
My PS4 games to play are Persona 5, Disgaea 5, Rime and Uncharted 4, and some of the anounced RPG's that will hit only in the end of 2016. And yes I have a ton more gaming platforms to play, so for ps4 only Jrpg's, Uncharted and maybe SF5 if online doesn't need PSN plus.
How about Tales of Zestiria next month?
lol. Ok, I need to ask... as an American male who happens to own a PS4.... WHAT THE HELL IS TALES OF ZESTIRIA? Quick google search reveals some weird looking thing that doesn't seem like any fun. Also its on PS3. Sony diehards keep pointing to Tales Of Zystitiria as their saving grace this fall. It's frkn hilarious.
I read its also coming to PC, I never realy liked any Tales games, if it proves to be something worthy I will play on the PC. Tri-Ace and Level 5 JRPG's are what I'm looking for, but please no more jrpg's like Ni no Kuni to childish, and also no White Wnight Chronicles. Give me Jrpj's that have more serious grafics story wise, last gen RPG's are really weak, saved only by the NDS.
Tales of Zesteria and DQ Heros coming Oct :P
S**t b8 m8
I think everyone saw this coming really. I'm just shocked it's taken them this long to announce the delay.
9 month delay, maybe more. Well..Happy F**king birthday to me. :'(
Why is anyone surprised, Sony does this every generation, every year. Announce a bunch of games so they can say they have just as many or more exclusives than Xbox, then half of them are duds, flops or delayed. Why do people keep falling for this, and why don't PS fans demand better?
too much estrogen in gaming thats why they dont demand anything. 9 months later after all this crap and atlus just said 2015 not long ago. Sick of the practice of lying companies. The game also looks like a early ps3 game wheres all the graphic topics about it too. fps looks about 30 as well. is rime coming this year same with disgaea?
Dissgea 5 is already out in Japan last March so development is done Don't think Rime even has a release date yet
Well said Strikepackage
Ermmm.. Except Sony never talked about Persona 5, only Atlus
Well said? You're on a PlayStation game article patting someone on the back when this is Persona from Atlus... not Sony. Get out of here. PS4 sincerely has more games released this year than Xbone. Overall, the system has has better rated games despite what your prejudices behind those games are. Gamers seem more satisfied by PS4, or so the sales indicate. And next year is a slaughter, even though you'll convince yourself that Xbone has more to offer, it won't and cannot. Paris Games Week and PSX will reveal more games for 2016. As Andrew House said earlier this year, 2015 is harvest period for first-party. It's obvious that 2016 will prove that Sony's been growing some potent crops and heck of a lot of them. PlayStation VR is an interesting question mark, and will lead to some very unique and interesting content for the platform. There's bound to be some really excellent games coming out for the device. Some really immersive stuff that make us remember this is the reason we play games in the first place - to escape to other worlds. And as for your attack on NewMonday above... kinda hypocritical. How many time have I seen 2015 Xbone exclusive lists with Scalebound, Crackdown, Quantum Break on? And they were delayed. Crackdown is looking like it might not even make 2016. What happens then? ----- @ Gangsta_red Yes, your... PS4.... Totally believable. Bro, are you not excited for SOMA? Looks like it's going to be one of the greatest horror games out there. ----- @ StrayaKNT Stop embarrassing yourself. As it stands, and as many have pointed out including yourself, PS4 has had so many game delays that 2016 has way, way, way more games in PS4's favour. Unmatched signifies something superior, but PS4 has more scheduled releases and it's going to be the year where the exclusives come hard, as referenced by the history of every PlayStation generation. If it was good enough for the amazing PS1, PS2 and PS3 cycle then of course it's good enough the generation that follows. Your mockery and laughter comes from a place of shocking and probably deliberate ignorance. Xbox One will have a fantastic year, but PS4 - at this very moment - looks killer too and is statistically unmatched by any other console on the market, and that's because this is coming up to the time when a PlayStation console truly hits its stride in terms of exclusive games.
This is very true Strikepackage but this isn't Sony's fault for this particular case. What we can learn from this tho is how a few on this site like to add games with no launch dates and hardly any gameplay to so called lists of games for 2015 just to counter another's list of games. Very disappointed to hear this, do we have a confirm for the new Tales game? Because if that is also delayed or comes out in 2016 then I don't know what my PS4 is going to be doing.
They don't want better this is literally good enough and that's hilarious lmao. I think they done this to bolster their 2016 Lineup because right now xbox one has a killer/unmatched 2016 Lineup imo.
"@moldybread as far as PS4 exclusives: Dragon Quest Heroes Tales of Zestiria these are games I want the most, they are already out in Japan have pre-orders open with box art and collector editions and all so should a safe bet. other exclusives: Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance Sword Art Online: Lost Song Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair Samurai Warriors 4-II don't follow their situation so don't know if they will pull a Persona5 " Ok, we should rephrase. A GOOD PS4 exclusive (Sword Art and Disgaea are debatable.) announced for 2015. LOL Japanese developer's have been delaying games as long as birth generations for awhile now. Honestly not surprised anymore.
