The Persona 5 uncertainty is over.
Persona 5 will launch in Europe and PAL territories on February 14, Deep Silver has confirmed – the same day as North American release.
The announcement puts an end to months of uncertainty regarding the RPG’s regional launch. It’s not unheard of for Atlus games to take months or even years to spread beyond Atlus USA’s sphere of influence, and the lack of news since Persona 5’s US release date announcement in June has some fans worried – especially as Atlus is one of the only publishers ever to invoke optional region blocking on Sony consoles.
But anyway, that’s all behind us now: Persona 5 is coming, and coming in style. In addition to the base €50/£40 PS3 and €70/£55 PS4 editions coming to digital and retail, two PS4 only special editions are available for collectors.
The SteelBook Launch Edition of Persona 5 is pretty much just a first-run thing; it goes for the standard €70/£55 and comes with a Steelbook case.
The Persona 5 Take Your Heart Premium Edition, on the other hand, goes for €90/£80 and comes with the game, SteelBook case, soundtrack CD, 4″/10cm Morgana plush, 64-page hardcover art book, school bag and collectible packaging.
