Last year in July 2020, the author of the Persona 5: Mementos Mission manga, Rokuro Saito, had confirmed that the manga would eventually see an overseas release. Today, comic book publisher Udon Entertainment has announced that they will be officially releasing the English version of Persona 5: Mementos Mission.
Persona 5: Mementos Mission is an original story based on Persona 5, revolving around the protagonist Ren Amamiya’s daily life, as he resolves problems his fellow Phantom Thieves and Confidants are dealing with in missions unrepresented in the actual game.
The first volume of the English version of the manga will be released on December 7, 2021. There is an exclusive Barnes & Noble edition of the manga, and it is also currently available for pre-order on Amazon US and Amazon UK.
The PERSONA 5: MEMENTOS MISSION manga series is ready to steal your heart! Following the success of the highly popular PERSONA 3 and PERSONA 4 manga series, UDON Entertainment is thrilled to announce the release of PERSONA 5: MEMENTOS MISSION VOLUME 1.

Persona 5: Mementos Mission had been in serialization in Dengeki Maoh magazine since October 27, 2018, coming to an end with the release of the third volume on July 27, 2020. As opposed to the first and ongoing Persona 5 manga by Murasaki Hisato being a straight retelling of the game, Mementos Mission is about original side stories featuring the Phantom Thieves solving people’s problems and changing new targets’ hearts.
The author Rokuro Saito was also responsible for the Persona 4 Arena Ultimax manga, which debuted in June 2015 and ended serialization in April 2018.
