Though Persona 5 launched in Japan this past September, localization seems to be taking longer than expected, and the game will launch in the U.S. on April 4, 2017.
Delays aren't fun for excited fans, but they are never for the game. Atlus has high standards for their games which is why we get treasures like Persona 4, Catherine, and the Shin Megami Tensei series. To make up for the delay, Atlus is including dual audio in the game, which means you can have the original Japanese voice work or the English dubs. Personally, I'll be using the dubs. I love Japanese and all, but Matthew Mercer, one of my favorite voice actors, is in the game.
While Persona 5 gets pushed further away, Final Fantasy XV is only 13 days away. So RPG fans will have a long game to hold them over!
