It’s an unfortunate piece of news but Persona 5 will no longer be getting a 2015 release. Announced at this year’s Tokyo Game Show, ATLUS have revealed that they have decided to delay the game’s release until the Summer of 2016 but, chances are, we’ll see another shift before that time anyway.
Director Katsura Hashino stated that the game is almost at full completion but there are certain elements the team would like to tweak and change before it’s full release, just to make sure the fans are happy with the quality level of the new title considering just how anticipated a game it is.
To make things a little better, though, ATLUS has taken the chance to use Tokyo Game Show 2015 as more than just a platform to deliver bad news: Being released alongside information of the game’s delay is it’s third trailer which actually shows much more of the upcoming game than what we’ve seen in the past and, in fact, than what we expected.
To accompany the new trailer, ATLUS also released a short video hosted by Mr. Hashino himself, the game’s director, that simply takes audiences through the new game and it’s development process. Now even though it’s entirely in Japanese, there are some incredibly exciting visuals you do not want to miss out on so make sure to check out this video as well as the new trailer.
As mentioned before, Persona 5 is now delayed until Summer 2016, but will still be getting a release for both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
