The nationwide Persona 5 demo tour which showcases the game in Japan is ongoing and has raked good reviews so far. The game also seems to be successful in attracting new players. Persona 5 is going to be released next month and will also appear at Tokyo Game Show, so there?s more content coming our way.
According to the official website of Persona, the showcase tour has already gone to Tokyo, Osaka and Sendai. All three areas have over 90 percent approval rating based on the gameplay players have seen. 100 percent of players from Osaka and Sendai are interested in Persona 5 after trying it out. Additionally, over 90 percent of players in the three Japanese cities are interested in owning the game after the showcase. Both fans and newcomers cited the game?s story, graphics, music and animation as its strong points, as seen in the Persona 5 demo.
So far, the results of the playtest for Nagoya and Fukuoka haven?t been revealed yet. Nagoya had the playtest on August 21, so Atlus may still be compiling their data into graphs. Meanwhile, Fukuoka is the last city to be visited by the demo tour on August 27. If these two cities also like the game, Persona 5 may be a fantastic addition for your Sony console.
The latest Persona game will be released in Japan on September 15. The game currently has the whole month to itself as Square Enix has decided to delay its larger JRPG rival, Final Fantasy 15, to November for its Day 1 patch. Final Fantasy 15?s delay effectively eliminates the competition between the two JRPGs and allows fans to save up more for both games.
However, importing Persona 5 in its Japanese version may not be wise as Dual Audio isn?t confirmed in the game, and the game may rely on slight dabs of English text on its interface. The game?s English release is not until February 14 next year. Western fans and other English-speaking fans may have to wait for the English version to make sense of the menus and dialogue in the game.
