Persona 5 delayed to 2016, but it's okay, here's a gorgeous new trailer

Though Atlus was maintaining that Persona 5 would be released in 2015 as recently as E3, it seems it was not to be. In a new trailer released for Tokyo Game Show, the developer has revealed a new release time frame of summer 2016.

You can watch the Japanese language trailer above, which includes lots of combat, cutscenes, side activities and even some Super Mario 64-style jumping through paintings. No surprise that the game is looking very stylish and cool.

The trailer confirms that Persona 5 is still being developed for both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. It's not clear if Atlus is still aiming for a worldwide release or if the "summer 2016" launch will be Japan only.

If you're wondering why you should be excited for Persona 5, check out our review of Persona 4 Golden for the PlayStation Vita.  It's one of only a small handful of games that we've ever awarded a review score of 10.
