Persona 5 Launches September 15 in Japan, Fourth Trailer

The wait is over: Persona 5 finally has a release date. After a lengthy countdown, which kicked off back on April 22nd, developer Atlus has revealed that the role playing game will be launching on September 15th in Japan, though it’s unclear when the game will be launching in the rest of the world. The game was originally scheduled for last year, but was delayed in September. It’ll be coming to both the PS3 and PS4.

It stars young students who can enter paintings to explore new worlds, and unlike past games, it takes place in a bustling Tokyo, instead of a small town.

The last mention of a Western release set the game up for a late 2016 release in the US, with still no word on when/if the game will make it to UK shores. Further detail will likely now have to wait for the game’s appearance in Los Angeles during year’s annual E3 event between 14-16 June.

2016 marks the 20th Anniversary of the Persona series and to celebrate the occasion a litany of extras accompanied the announcement.

A Collector’s Edition of Persona 5 was unveiled for the Japanese market which includes “series special” DLC, an art book, soundtrack CDs and a rather large, snazzy box. The stream also included a brief snippet of the Persona 5 anime series set to accompany the September launch. A brand new gameplay trailer (below), official box art and the illumination of Tokyo Tower in the game’s signature bright tones completed a showing that promises an exciting year for fans.

Check out the Trailer:
