During a much-hyped live stream Atlus announced that Persona 5 will be released in Japan on 15th September 2016.
The announcement was made with a new trailer (featured above) which showcased every aspect of the game, from its combat to its story. Unfortunately the trailer was entirely in Japanese, with not an English subtitle in sight.
It’s unknown when Persona 5 will release in the West however given how there wasn’t a peep of information about its Western release during the live stream, and considering how the game will be launching in late September in Japan, I expect Persona 5 to release in 2017.
As a huge fan of the Persona series, I really can’t wait to get my hands on it! For now, I’m just going to keep re-watching the new trailer.
