Persona 5 won’t launch until April 4, Atlus announced Wednesday. The publisher revealed the delay during a livestream, which also saw the debut of the first English-language gameplay of the upcoming role-playing game.
Originally set for a Feb. 14, 2017 release, Persona 5 won’t make it onto PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 stateside for another several weeks. That’s in spite of the fact that Japanese fans have had their hands on the game since mid-September.
To compensate for the later release date, Atlus will receive Japanese audio alongside the international release. It will be available as free downloadable content, according to a post on the PlayStation Blog. The English-language version was originally going to launch without Japanese vocal options, so this alteration should appease some otherwise disappointed fans. Atlus is also giving away a free Persona 5 PS4 theme for the next 24 hours as a bonus.
Atlus also debuted the final art for the game’s premium edition. Take a look below to see what it includes; the “Take Your Heart” set is up for pre-order and costs $89.99.
Persona 5 has been in the works for several years now, and fans have hotly anticipated the title since the release of Persona 4. That game debuted on PlayStation 2 back in 2008, and it’s received several spinoffs (and a high-quality re-release) across various platforms since. The PS2 edition is currently on sale on the PlayStation Store.
