Persona 5 has a release date in the Americas.
Noooooo... Europe 2018 then? I'll buy it on the US store then.
Well atleast we have a time frame now. I can understand the delay of NA version from Japan version because of translations. But can't they release the same english copy in Europe too ? I know not all EU speak english but isn't it better then to wait for an year ?
In reality that is not a delay. At least the localization isn't as long as the Evagelion Remake ones. I mean my God!
^ It was already a delay after they CONFIRMED the the game was launching in 2015
the last game i will buy for consoles i can finally put it to sleep lol
wtf? that's so dumb
maybe he meant PS3
Good for you.
If Persona is your last game on consoles, it sucks to be you. P.S. Persona Feb. 14th, Horizon:Zero Dawn Feb. 28th? Best. Month. Ever.
i have seriously no interest in those other games that's coming out i would have bought a ps4 a long time ago except for a slight interest in GT but still not worth the money Iracing and assetto corsa will do
Are you fucking serious? Jesus Christ.
I really want the collector's edition, next year will be also great on PS4.
8 months is a long time. But at least we have a release date.
At times like this, i wish I lived in Japan 😭
You don't need to live in JP, you just need to speak Japanese.
Exactly...piece of cake!
I am latterly considering to learn Japanese in order to play this game 8 months early
Yeah not surprise by this. Well at least we finally have a date. Though I wish US atlus and Atlus of Japan could've work together to get this out sooner.
No that's too far away, I want it now!
******** seriously!? These PS4 exclusive delays are getting ridiculous.
Persona games have ALWAYS released first in Japan, 5 months later in NA and further 10 months later in Europe. Everybody expected this. and everybody knew the Horizon Zero Dawn delay too. (There was slim chance a new AAA IP was going to be releasing in holidays anyway)
*sigh* this displeases me. The only good thing about this is that it saves me $60 for the year.
I see people screaming delays this, delays that. Did anyone actually think for a single second that this would've had a 2016 release date? It's called "localisation", not delay.
yeah, all of a sudden it's like the japanese release doesn't matter. If it hits in september like it's supposed to, it was not delayed.
Facts don't matter ever since Microsoft stopped reporting them.
Well considering Atlus has been saying since last year it is coming out world wide in 2016 getting our hopes up, yes I say we can be surprised. Also there maybe localization but there also is a thing that is becoming more popular called simultaneous localization and world wide release dates and with a huge title like SMT they'd be able to do a world wide release date.
Awesome now that it has a solid release date. Can't wait to get this game,
The conveyor belt just keeps on rolling, I love the Persona series. 2017 is set to be another massive year for Playstation.
Perfect! Holiday 2016 is already crowded and E3 hasn't even started not to mention PSVR and the new systems.
Ill just buy the american version just like i did with demon souls
Dis sum bow-shiiiiii!
Good move as holidays is already crowed with many multiplat, other ps exclusives like GT sports, DQ builder, NMS, LG etc, PS4 gonna once again have blockbuster start next year like they did 2016.
Will get this next February then
I'm okay with the delay. At least we know it has been made and is coming unlike holding our breath for HL3
Awesome news about a real release date. Need my Persona fix
I have a feeling this will be my GOTY 2017. The Persona series is too good. Day Zero.
All these games getting delayed just kills me. Has anyone kept a running tally? Mass Effect and Horizon Zero Dawn......now Persona 5. Am I missing anything?
They only confirmed the release date for Japan if I'm not mistaken. And since it wasn't delayed there the game itself isn't delayed. As for the other regions releasing later, that's called localisation. Something very typical with Japanese titles. They usually release the Japanese version first and then procede to translate the other ones.
True they never gave a specific month and day but they said 2015 then 2016 and now 2017. I just wish they wouldnt even bother giving a year unless they know it will be that year.
Good to know when it will arrive finally.
Time to learn japanese
Worst E3 news so far for me... Well, at least now some other games will get a chance to win GOTY lol
What the Eff man 2017?? COME ON MAN
So many release dates being revealed. I love it. This + Xcom 2 has put a smile on my face.
Man, it's going to be a long wait
Where can I preorder though? EDIT: Nevermind found the Amazon page. 🙃
Seriously, what is this game doing that it needs a delay? It's not like it's some graphic intensive open world monster of a game! (or is it) Like I said before, this gen is going to be defined by delays and games being announced almost two to three years too early.
I'm just happy that we've got a concrete date now. Plus the Take Your Heart Collector's Edition looks great. Feb 2017 can't come fast enough!
That steel book edition looks nice.
...Funny how Persona 4 came out 2 years into the PS3's generation, and Persona 5 is coming out 2 years into the PS4's generation.
