TGS 2015: Persona 5 Delayed To Summer 2016 In Japan

Atlus announced at Tokyo Game Show that the Japanese release date of the long-awaited Persona 5 has been delayed to Summer 2016. The publisher also confirmed a 2016 release for the west, but a specific release window will be revealed at a later date.

"The strengths of the Persona series are compelling characters, a moving, relatable story, and a borderline obsession with minutiae - elements which can't be rushed or taken lightly. So while ATLUS realizes the frustration and disappointment that this must cause for the JRPG-loving public, please know that we are delaying the game in order to make sure the next iteration of the Persona series lives up to the expectations of fans," said Atlus.

It's not all bad news, though, as fans can at least enjoy the game's new trailer. Persona 5 will be available on PS4 and PS3.
