posted on by Alex Mateo
Atlus USA announced during a live-stream event on Wednesday that it has delayed its western release date for the Persona 5 PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 game from February 14 to April 4, 2017. However, the company will now offer the Japanese voice track as a free DLC, contrary to the original plan to release the game without a dual-language option.
Atlus USA also began streaming an English-dubbed trailer on Wednesday, showing the protagonist's daily life activities. In the trailer, the protagonist goes to school, eats at a restaurant, watches a movie, trains at a gym, and builds relationships with people.
The latest entry in the Persona role-playing game series shipped for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in Japan on September 15.
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 on September 3. The special recounts the prologue story of the young thief organization at the center of the game. Crunchyroll streamed the television special, and Aniplex of America will release it on an import Blu-ray Disc of the Collector's Edition on February 14.
