Following the announcement of the Persona 5 “SteelBook Launch Edition” releasing on February 14, 2017 in North America, Atlus USA has revealed the (nearly) final design for the release.
While the five agonizing months to wait until the English release of Persona 5 are currently testing all of us (especially after the stellar reception Japan’s release got), we have some exciting news.
We’ve pulled the mask of the announcement cover design off the Persona 5 SteelBook® Launch Edition to reveal its true inner self — the amazing group portrait of the P5 cast! Even better, the case will have a clear disc holder on the inside and reveal a secondary design of the Phantom Thieves in their personal guises.
And while we don’t have any game-specific news this time around, we *are* increasing our security measures at ATLUS USA as we get into the full swing of the game, because you can’t be *too* careful when the Phantom Thieves are lurking about!
The premium “Take Your Heart” edition of the game releasing in North America and Europe will also include the SteelBook. The full contents of the limited edition are:
- Soundtrack CD: A selection of music from Persona 5 by legendary series composer Shoji Meguro in a CD wallet featuring P5 artwork.
- 4″ Morgana plush: Morgana the cat is not just the mascot of the Phantom Thieves, but is also a member–and also not just a cat! The premium edition includes an exclusive 4″ plush of Morgana.
- 64-page hardcover art book: This art book is full of concept sketches, character art, and more by character designer Shigenori Soejima.
- SteelBook: As strong as a vault, the game disc for the PS4 will come specially packaged in a SteelBook collectible case, emblazoned with Persona 5 designs.
- School bag: Designed after the traditional school bags in Japan, the exclusive replica bag comes complete with the Shujin Academy crest.
- Collectible outer box: Easily the largest premium edition in ATLUS’ history, the entirety of the “Take Your Heart” Premium Edition comes in a colossal collectible box.
Persona 5 was released for the PS3 and PS4 in Japan on September 15, 2016. It will release in North America and Europe on February 14, 2017, and in traditional Chinese and Korean in 2017.
