Persona 5 News and Update: Release Date, Voice Actors and Characters

By on

This year will be a big one for Atlus and Square Enix as they head on to the popular JRPG Persona 5 and Final Fantasy 15. What?s interesting however, is the apparent inclusion of Persona 4 voice actors in the latest series by the popular anime. Troy Baker and Johnny Young Bosch are slated to play the voice actors in the English adaptation of Persona 5. That means, there won?t be any major changes and adapting problems in the creation of Persona 5.

Troy Baker previously played Kanji Tatsumi while Johnny Young Bosch voiced Adachi. Currently, there?s no confirmation on the two?s involvement in Persona 5 with regards to the specific characters they will be voicing, but one thing?s for sure, they?re back for more. Atlus is also working hard on the English version of the game in order to give their western counterparts the best gaming experience.

PlayStation 4 is also set to receive the English version of the game, but fans are warned to have patience as this work will not be an easy task. Unfortunately, Atlus did not commit on putting Persona 5 on the PS Vita platform, which means gamers will have to play it on the PS4 console, or wait for its version to finally arrive; if it?s on the blueprint.

Meanwhile, Eurogamer featured Persona 5 saying, the game will finally arrive in Europe, courtesy of publisher Deep Silver. Not only Persona 5, but some of Atlus popular games as well as SEGA. CEO of Atlus USA Naoto Hiraoka said in a statement ?In entering this partnership with Deep Silver, I am truly delighted we will be able to release our titles in the European regions. Not only does the deal span multiple titles, but Deep Silver has a strong presence in European and PAL retailers.?


The arrival of Persona 5 in the European region has opened new opportunities for Atlus, set aside the misunderstanding between the game developer and its European gamers. So, if you have been waiting for the Persona 5 game to arrive in your region, make sure to check on for the latest update.
