Persona 5 has a release date… in Japan !

Last year’s E3 pleased a lot of JRPG (Japanese Role-Playing Game) fans when Persona 5 was announced in a very colorful trailer.  After the huge success that Persona 4 had, on both Playstation 2 and Vita (getting both 90+ on Metacritic), a sequel was expected by a lot of gamers out there.

About 2 weeks ago, the official web site of Persona 5 had a countdown leading to an announcement, and this time has finally come !

An official release date for the Japanese release of Persona 5 was announced : September 15th 2016.


A special “Anniversary” edition has also been unveiled, which will contain a lot of additional content, like an art book, a soundtrack, DLC, etc.
