Atlus began streaming a television commercial for its upcoming Persona 5 PlayStation 4 game on Tuesday. The video centers on Ryuji Sakamoto, a problem child with bad behavior. Mamoru Miyano voices the character.

The latest entry in the Persona role-playing game series will ship for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 on Thursday, September 15 in Japan, and on February 14, 2017 in the Americas. The game's Western release will have English audio only.

Atlus will offer the American release in a "Take Your Heart" Premium Edition that includes a soundtrack CD, a Morgana plush, a hardcover art book, a steelbook, and a school bag. The game will also be available in a SteelBook Edition.

The game features animation sequences from the Production I.G studio.

The Persona 5 the Animation -The Day Breakers- television anime special aired last Saturday, September 3. The special recounts the prologue story of the young thief organization at the center of the game. Crunchyroll is streaming the television special.
