thegeekdojo.net

Person 5 may have gotten delayed for the 1000th time for western audiences, but Atlus has come through with a new English trailer to help ease the pain. It doesn’t get rid of all the pain, but I will be able to sleep a little better at night knowing that it does still exist. Japan says its really good. Check out the trailer below.

Hopefully it wont get delayed again, but look for Persona 5 to hit stores sometime in April of 2017.

Persona 5 Won’t Come Westward Until 2017

Many fans, including myself, were hoping the next Persona game would drop this fall in North America. Today Atlus hit us with some pretty sad news. Persona 5 will be out in North America on February 14th, 2017.

That’s a whopping 5 month gap between when it releases in Japan and when it releases in N.A. Looking at the silver lining, this gives me plenty of time to play Final Fantasy XV and a number of other games that are in my backlog/coming out this year. I’m not sure if I would be able to handle FFXV and P5 coming out in the same year.

Atlus also showed off the box art and released information about the special editions that we will be able to purchase in North America. Check it all out below.

Persona 5 is a game about the internal and external conflicts of a group of troubled high school students – the protagonist and a collection of compatriots he meets in the game’s story – who live dual lives as Phantom Thieves. They have the typically ordinary day-to-day of a Tokyo high schooler: attending class, after-school activities, and part-time jobs. But they also undertake fantastical adventures by using otherworldly powers to enter the hearts of people. Their power comes from the Persona, the Jungian concept of the “self”; the game’s heroes realize that society forces people to wear masks to protect their inner vulnerabilities, and by literally ripping off their protective mask and confronting their inner selves do the heroes awaken their inner power, and using it to help those in need. Ultimately, the group of Phantom Thieves seeks to change their day-to-day world to match their perception and see through the masks modern society wears.

Persona 5 will release on Feb. 14, 2017 in the Americas, for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. Pre-orders are now available at participating retailers. The game is not yet rated by the ESRB. For more information, please visit the official website, atlus.com/persona5

Persona 5 Continues to Impress, But is Also Delayed

geekdojo.wordpress.com

Atlus has released a new trailer for Persona 5 and it looks incredible. The trailer was shown off at Tokyo Game Show where Atlus also announced that the game has been pushed into 2016.

The setting takes place in a big city, which is more than likely Tokyo. In the trailer, we really get to see some of the gameplay and activities you may do throughout the game like martial art training or turning into cats…yea, I said that right. The trailer is also filled with some of the things you will do outside of your daily student life routine such as battling demons with you persona.

Atlus continues to be very quiet about P5 as far as the story goes, but it looks like you are some type of costumed, demon fighting world traveler judging from the opening cinematic and the trailer as a whole. Hopefully we will get an English version soon. Check out the trailer below.

Expect Persona 5 sometime in  2016.
