Persona 5 Delayed Yet Again

by Peter Paltridgeon November 16, 2016
Remember the planned Valentine’s Day 2017 release for Atlus’s Persona 5? I hope you weren’t planning on presenting it to your sweetheart, because it’s no longer scheduled for that month. The English version has been kicked down to April 4. This game was originally planned for a Japanese release in 2014. It was then delayed […]

Persona 5’s Version of Online Co-Op

by Peter Paltridgeon August 31, 2016
This week’s issue of Famitsu revealed that Persona 5 will sport some online co-op capabilities. How does such a thing fit into a single-player JRPG? Like this…. You can’t battle other players or tackle a dungeon in a strictly multiplayer mode. Persona 5 uses online cooperation a little differently. Let’s say you’re battling a big […]

by Peter Paltridgeon July 19, 2016
Atlus’s grand reveal of Persona 5 continues with the contents of today’s livestream: the opening cinematic plus the first eighteen minutes of the game.

by Peter Paltridgeon July 18, 2016
Starved for new information on Persona 5? Atlus held a 17-and-a-half minute livestream this morning where they played through a portion of the game.

E3 2016: Eight-Minute Persona 5 Preview

by Peter Paltridgeon June 15, 2016
Atlus invited the press to preview eight minutes of clips from the new Persona 5. Unfortunately the English translation is still a work in progress, so the entirety of the footage was in Japanese. Even worse, they provided no method of directly capturing the video, so IGN had to record the screen to bring everyone […]

Persona 5 Comes Out February 5, 2017

by Peter Paltridgeon June 7, 2016
We now have a solid release date for Persona 5: February of next year. Those of you who were expecting the game sometime in 2016 are no doubt disappointed, but to be realistic, in such a crowded year this game would have gotten lost. February is traditionally a dead zone for game releases and with […]

We still don’t know when the US is getting Persona 5 (we know that it’s happening, we just don’t know when). But this week Atlus revealed when its home country would be getting the RPG — September 15, 2016. It was pointed out that this date is just five days shy of Persona’s 20th anniversary, […]

NIS America Will No Longer Localize Atlus Games

by Peter Paltridgeon April 26, 2016
It was announced earlier this year that Sega had established ownership of Atlus Games, publishers of delightfully niche JRPGs like Persona and the Disgaea series. It comes as no surprise then, that NIS America won’t be localizing any more of them. They have their own ability to do that now. Henceforth, says NIS America managing […]

Sega owns Atlus. “After nearly a year working under the¬†Sega¬†Games division, both SEGA […]
