Time to GET HYPE: Atlus announces Persona 5 English release date

See you in 8 months?

If you've been waiting on an English-language release date for Persona 5 before getting hyped up in anticipation, now is your time, waiting on the announcement of an English-language release date, are now at liberty to rev up your hype engines: Atlus USA has confirmed an official release date for the North American edition of Persona 5.

The date? February 14th, 2017, five months after the September 15th Japanese release and right in time for Valentine's Day. You'll be looking at an eight-month wait from today, but at least it's plenty of time to finish off the likes of Final Fantasy XV and a few other anticipated releases, right?

Plus, a release lag of this length is common for Atlus' localizations, at least on the scale of a major release, and Persona 5 definitely qualifies as such. You can begin building anticipation by checking out my translation and analysis of the latest trailer, or maybe even putting down a preorder for one of the fancy-pants editions of the game.
