During a broadcast on Nico Nico, Atlus launched a brand new trailer of the upcoming PS4 and PS3 JRPG Persona 5, and revealed the release date.
Does 15th Sept in Japan also means 15th Sept all over Asia ? Also probably 2017 for NA and EU. How hard is to do a WW release in this day and age. Am I missing something ?
Next event is at e3, expect NA release date then. I believe they are aiming for 2016 in the west still. 2017-18-19-20-3000 for EU though.
Hahahahaha that'd be cool but don't be surprised if our release date doesn't get revealed till around the time of the Japanese launch
Depends on how they work and their ressources. It might be easier for them to finish first the Japanese version and allow them to release the Japanese version as soon as possible.
P5 & Nier Automata this year for me. No other JRPG comes close.
This game looks freaking amazing, like GOTY contender good. Heres the latest trailer from the stream in HD.. https://youtu.be/qKZtJmt85n... Apparently they mentioned E3 at the end of the stream so hopefully we'll know a worldwide release date then
WTF is at 1:10. This game is weird. I just cant play weird games like these
Thats cause you not a fan, if you wore you would know persona games always weird stuff happen
Just a strange monster, nothing too bizarre for a JRPG? You should play Soul Sacrifice Delta & Bloodborne if you think this game is weird :P
Mara is still stranger. http://i.imgur.com/hXNxbJd....
It does look really good.
If it has the same quality of Persona 3 and Persona 4 there is no doubt about it, Persona 5 will be my GOTY.
Come on Sega,give us the western release
I wish the game was a bit more like Persona 2 with having adult characters in the team like Baofu and Katsuya and a little away of the high school trend of 3 and 4 . it would be nice to have characters some of us older gamers can relate to. we're not dead yet.
@MWH Sadly the High School Student thing is what is popular and what sells the series now, as Persona 4/Golden saw the best sales numbers in the series. I wish they would have college kids or something with 20+ year olds, with Persona 2's maturity, but I don't think we'll get that again with Persona. The only hope for something like that is SMT, which is pretty much kicked to the curb, because the spinoff series Persona is more popular now than SMT is/was. Edit : SMT is the mainline series, Persona is a spin off, just like Devil Summoner, Strange Journey, Devil Survivor, and many others. Those games have ALWAYS been spinoffs.
well persona was never really a spin off series. was only a spin off series outside japan in name only
Come on man. We both know it's going to be amazing :)
@DragonDDark P5 looks like it's going to be fun, but you can always want more, right? It just sucks being more of an SMT fan, and watching all these Persona games come to consoles, while SMT is only on 3DS. I just think it would be cool to see the series grow with the audience, ya know? I think it would be more refreshing, interesting, and relatable if they did that.
Preach brother, PREACH!
I do like the high school trend the last 2 entries had, however I agree with you. High school doesn't mean all characters need to be young, they could say make a teacher or two into Persona users as well.
I gonna guess its takes around 70 hours to complete based on other persona games...which should be around 2 weeks if spare a few hours each day. You'll be able to finish it right on time for FF15....but it doesn't really matter as a western release date hasn't been announced yet.
disappointing, was hoping it would be ready for summer, but nope
Isnt that the same day ff15 drops. Maybe im just confused. But any way now we know a date and can just hope for early date 2017 release
BRB, crying on the inside. If it's that long for Japan, it'll be a painful wait for the west.
Atlus sure does love screwing with their European fans.
Since FFXV release Sep.30, and Berseria early 2017, I hope we get this Oct-Dec 2016. Maybe this is a wishful thinking, but I really hope thats the case
US release June 2017
What a year for PS4, it's insane, can't wait for another amazing exclusive like Persona 5.
Nice now we need the North American release date
Jesus Christ. How many masterpieces can one console attain within a year? I hope this gets localised before the end of the year.
I love how you can enjoy niche games like Persona 5 and Very popular mainstream games like Uncharted 4 all on the same console. Why is Playstation so diverse? It's always been like this. Some may not like Persona and that's okay and some may dislike Uncharted and that's okay too. You can choose what you want.
Buying the Japanese version. Don't care. I'll learn Japanese. F**k it. F**K IT!
oh my... this game made me feel like such a little kid l've gone and wet myself. Hype
