Persona 5 receives a Western release date and collector's edition details0 Comments
After far more waiting than anyone was really prepared for, Atlus has finally settled on a western release date for the highly anticipated upcoming JRPG Persona 5. The North American release date has been set for February 14, 2017. The Phantom Thieves will be stealing our hearts a good few months later than those in Japan, but it seems we'll also be getting both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 versions, so you can breathe easy if you've still not upgraded your console.
We'll be getting more than just the game, as well. The PS4 version will have a steelbook edition available at launch for no additional cost, as well as a fancy collector's edition called the "Take Your Heart Premium Edition." As you can see in the image below, it comes with a replica school bag, a 64 page hardcover art book, a Morgana plush, a soundtrack CD, and the steelbook, all within a nice collector's box. You can also have a look at the box art in the album below.
It's a tad unfortunate that we need to wait so much longer to get our hands on it, especially since it's been almost a decade since Persona 4 released, but I've no doubt it will be worth the wait. P4 was one of my favorite games — and P3 is no slouch either — so I'm certainly eager to finally get the next iteration.
