Persona 5 Coming to North America on February 14
ATLUS announced that Persona 5 would be coming to North America on February 14, 2017. In addition to announcing the release date, they also detailed the different editions that you could pre-order.
The standard edition of Persona 5 can be yours for $59.99 on PlayStation 4 and $49.99 on PlayStation 3. If you pre-order Persona 5 on the PS4, you can get a limited edition Steelbook version of the game at no additional cost. If you’re feeling really dedicated, PS4 users also have the option to pre-order the “Take Your Heart” collector’s edition.
The collector’s edition includes the SteelBook version of the game, a 4” plush Morgana toy, a 64-page hardcover art book, a full-size Shujin Academy replica school bag, the soundtrack, and a collectible box. The “Take Your Heart” collector’s edition is going for $89.99.
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.
