remember when they said it was confirmed to still be coming in 2015.

eh... not a big deal as long as they use this time to make sure that what ever collectors edition they make has enough stock to at least stay live on amazon/best buy for at least a day.

I still want to give them my extra money for likely pointless stuff. I mean heck I bought the e3 bag from last year off ebay. need my extra persona goodies.

Everything I want to play gets delayed. It better be region free because I'm not waiting until Feb 2019 to play it in the UK.

I think this is ok, bummer it can't be sooner but localizing a massive (presumably) game like that takes time, right?

Received Atlus newsletter with this info right after reading the thread. Interesting timing. I'll be playing in September though, so whatever.

Hey, they also reconfirmed hte PS3 version and gave details on the PS4 special edition, that's pretty cool.

Take Your Heart” Premium Edition - PlayStation 4 only ($89.99/CA$109.99)

Exclusive to the PS4 version of the game, the premium edition includes the following:

Soundtrack CD: A selection of music from Persona 5 by legendary series composer Shoji Meguro in a CD wallet featuring P5 artwork.
Morgana plush: Morgana the cat is not just the mascot of the Phantom Thieves, but is also a member—and also not just a cat! The premium edition includes an exclusive 4" plush of Morgana.
64-page hardcover art book: This art book is full of concept sketches, character art, and more by character designer Shigenori Soejima.
SteelBook: As strong as a vault, the game disc for the PS4 will come specially packaged in a SteelBook collectible case, emblazoned with Persona 5 designs.
School bag: Designed after the traditional school bags in Japan, the exclusive replica bag comes complete with the Shujin Academy crest.
Collectible outer box: Easily the largest premium edition in ATLUS’ history, the entirety of the “Take Your Heart” Premium Edition comes in a colossal collectible box.
Do you hear that crying? It's my wallet in complete agony imagining the cost this will be to bring it home.

Sucks but I can't really get mad as there is already so much coming out this year that I want to play. Persona and Horizon to kick off 2017 is fine by me

Eh that's not far at all, I never really expected them to hit 2016, but it would have been great if they did.

It feels like they're making Atlus USA wait until the Japanese version is completely finished before they can start localizing it.

I really don't feel like this is a disappointment at all, also the thread title should include the date, since a specific one is given!

Will this be a record for most appearances on a shinobi GAF most anticipated list? 4 in a row (assuming it makes the 2017 one which it will).

And before someone says FFXV, it was never given a release year before last year so it only had 1 appearance.

Not too bad. But as an EU person this will be my first game i ever import

As knowing Atlus the EU port will be like late 2017/ early 2018 at best.

Wait why are people in Europe worried about a European release date? The PS4 is region free right? Importing is a hassle, but you won't have to wait until 2018 or anything ridiculous like that :p

Nice that the special edition has some unique stuff.

Don't feel bad about importing the JP special edition now.

If I ever post something in Japanese which I don't understand, please BAN me.

When do we know if the game is region locked or not?

So incredibly split on whether to play this game in Japanese when it comes out. I know enough to get through it with a dictionary and enjoy the voice acting a fair amount, but hearing it and reading things in English has a lot more acute emotional impact and of course I can get all the subtleties of the speech. If it has a lot of emotional twists and turns like P4, I'd want the full impact of them... Not even a huge fan of the gameplay lol. But like everyone else I'm dying to get my hands on it.
