Persona 5 delayed
RPG slips by a couple of months, but will include dual audio
Publisher Atlus has announced that the upcoming RPG Persona 5 has been delayed.
The North America debut of the game, originally scheduled for February, was pushed back to a new release date of April 4, 2017.
To compensate for the delay, the publisher has confirmed that the game will include Japanese VO data at launch as a free DLC. "We decided that we owed our fans the very best effort to make Persona 5 our gold standard in localization. Practically, this means redoubling our QA and localization efforts, even returning to the studio to record previously unvoiced lines," said the company.
To further appease fans disappointed at this news, Persona 5 will be playable at this year's PlayStation Experience in December. Further, a PS4 dynamic theme and avatar set of Ryuji Sakamoto is currently available for free for a limited time, on the PSN store (it will be a paid theme when the game launches).
Persona 5 is set to release on PS3 and PS4.
