Persona 5 To Release on September 15, 2016 in Japan


Persona 5 finally got a release date—well, at least in Japan. Persona 5 will release on September 15, 2016 on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. This was announced on today’s special Persona 5 live stream event where a new trailer was shown. The new trailer featured several new characters.

Persona 5 will receive a 20th anniversary Collector’s Edition. This Collector’s Edition will come with the game, DLC (Costumes based on the P4 and P3 cast & Personas) a PS4 Theme, a 5-disc soundtrack, and an artbook.


The Persona 5 The Animation (anime series) was teased for September 2016 during the live stream.

A release date for Persona 5 in the west is yet to be announced, but we’ll probably find out more about it in the next couple of weeks leading up to E3 2016.
