Persona 5 has been announced to release in the West for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 on February 14, 2017.

Atlus writes this about the game-via press release:

Persona 5 is a game about the internal and external conflicts of a group of troubled high school students – the protagonist and a collection of compatriots he meets in the game’s story – who live dual lives as Phantom Thieves. They have the typically ordinary day-to-day of a Tokyo high schooler: attending class, after-school activities, and part-time jobs. But they also undertake fantastical adventures by using otherworldly powers to enter the hearts of people. Their power comes from the Persona, the Jungian concept of the “self”; the game’s heroes realize that society forces people to wear masks to protect their inner vulnerabilities, and by literally ripping off their protective mask and confronting their inner selves do the heroes awaken their inner power, and using it to help those in need. Ultimately, the group of Phantom Thieves seeks to change their day-to-day world to match their perception and see through the masks modern society wears.

Additionally, Atlus has revealed two premium editions:

    No love for Europe. Now that the Atlus-NISA deal is over I wonder if somebody will pick up those releases.

    • Panpopo

      This is a pretty big game so I am certain there will be an announcement – toooo much money to be made imo. Worse comes to worse, you can import a physical copy.

    • Mr0303

      Yeah, I’m sure we’ll eventually get it, but it would be nice if PlayStation’s strongest market was somewhat appreciated.

  • David S

    I would be excited for this, but considering the condition of Atlus’ latest NA release, can’t say I have much faith in them localizing it properly (or fully intact).

    • Solbasa

      What game are you referring to?

    • David S

      SMTxFE (Tokyo Mirage Sessions FE)

    • j0eeyy_p

      That’s Nintendo calling the shots with that one as they are publishing Sessions. There should be nothing to worry about with this one as Nintendo have nothing to do with this game.

    It’s amazing to me that there are still PS3 games being released.
