It looks like Persona 5 could potentially have the Japanese audio offered as DLC, if this tweet from Atlus PR manager John Hardin is anything to go.

John’s tweet (below) outlines that Altus are “looking into” whether the original Japanese audio could be offered as DLC, but has “no news” to share at this time. Note there is no mention of whether fans will have to pay for it like in Soul Sacrifice Delta.

Given that the Persona series has grown considerably since the launch of the original Persona 4 back in 2008, adding dual audio could help this series get even bigger.

Persona 5 is releasing on Feburary 14, 2017 in the Americas for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. There is no word on a European release.

A university student who loves niche games and desires for them to be more fairly represented in the world. Favourite games include Persona 4 Golden, Super Mario Galaxy, Kingdom Hearts II and IA/VT Colorful. Hopes that one day a Japanese publisher will take the risk and make a Yaoi ecchi game. Think Valkyrie Drive with guys and you're on the right lines.

    Just some PR bullshit by John Hardin. Ppl on the Europe blog once asked
    him about it then he whined about us disrespecting the english
    voice-actors so we turned the roles which he ignored and even deleted
    some very good arguments, then there is the surveys that always close in
    seconds and always pit Dual audio against Free stuff and then
    threatening with higher price if included, not to mention we never get
    to see the result of those surveys. Overal this man is full of shit and
    this is just a push to get japanese dub fans to buy the game and with
    ATLUS track record expect to be ignored.

    More audio options are always welcome, but not holding my breath that this will happen.

    Dual audio should be a feature for all games with dub.
