Persona 5's DLC looks like a must for longtime series fans

Get me that Gekkoukan High uniforms, stat


It’s only fitting that Persona 5, a game that’s been called one of the most stylish of its generation, would receive a ton of fashionable downloadable content. Atlus updated the game’s website with the entire schedule of DLC releases, and the lineup should make fans of the entire Shin Megami Tensei series happy.

One week after launch, Persona 5 will receive costumes based on its predecessors. Players will be able to dress up the Phantom Thieves crew as the teens from Persona 3 and Persona 4. These packs will retail for $6.99 when they’re on sale April 11, and they’ll be followed by a similar set based on Persona 2 at the same price the following week.

We’re very into Morgan’s Aigis cosplay in this Persona 3 costume set.
These costumes from Devil Summoner should remind Atlus fans that Persona isn’t the only styling series the publisher’s got.

Other Shin Megami Tensei games get the Persona 5 treatment, too, including some truly obscure ones. Shin Megami Tensei if ... never even made it to North America, but its setting inspired the original Persona game, so its inclusion in the DLC catalogue makes sense. That’s coming April 18, too.

There’s also costumes drawn from Shin Megami Tensei 4; Catherine, a game that’s sort of a spiritual sibling to the Persona series; Devil Summoner, a series which had two games on PlayStation 2; and both Persona 4: Dancing All Night and Persona 4 Arena Ultimax. Each one costs $6.99 as well, and they’ll be released on a weekly basis through May 2.

The costumes — and much of the other DLC, like music, themes and avatar — are just cosmetic additions to the game, but the Persona series is as much about its gameplay and story as its winning aesthetic. Folks looking for something more impactful can at least look forward to the new difficulty level set, a free download available when the game launches on April 4.
