Atlus USA began streaming two English-dubbed trailers featuring the characters Yusuke Kitagawa and Makoto Nijima from its upcoming Persona 5 PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 game on Wednesday.
Atlus also streamed a video featuring Makoto's voice actress Cherami Leigh discussing the role with PR manager John Hardin.
Atlus USA is releasing Persona 5 in the West on April 4, 2017, delayed from its previous February 14 release date. 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.
The English dub cast includes:
- Xander Mobus as the protagonist
- Cassandra Morris as Morgana
- Max Mittelman as Ryuji Sakamoto
- Erika Harlacher as Ann Takamaki
- Matthew Mercer as Yusuke Kitagawa
- Cherami Leigh as Makoto Niijima
- Erica Lindbeck as Futaba Sakura
- Xanthe Huynh as Haru Okumura
- Robbie Daymond as Goro Akechi
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.
