As if the wait hasn’t been long enough, Persona 5 has been delayed yet again. The new official release date of April 4, 2017 was announced today, and while it may be a little disheartening for fans, there is still a silver lining.
The game will include Japanese dubbing as an option. The base game will ship with just the English dub, the Japanese audio will be available for download via the PlayStation Store for free. This will be available for both PS3 and PS4 versions of the game. While Atlus historically isn’t known for including dual audio in its games, it is nice to know that they have heard their fans, and will include it this time.
In an effort to soften the blow, PlayStation announced a few small surprises in an official blog post. First, a playable demo of the game would be available at the PlayStation Experience from December 3-4. Second, a limited time Persona 5 PS4 theme was released, though only for 24 hours.
Persona 5 released in Japan earlier this year in September to critical reception, making the wait that much more frustrating. But with all the delays, hopefully a well-polished game will be waiting for us at the beginning if April.
