What to Expect

This event will be taking place at the Tokyo National Museum. The first public demo of Persona 5 will be playable at the event, with a select number of attendees. Some of what to expect:

  • Seven new announcements relating to Persona 5.
  • Persona 5 public gameplay demo footage.

The “Revealing the Phantom Thieves” Persona 5 live stream event preceded this one last month, on June 15, 2016.

Persona 5 is slated to be released for the PS3 and PS4 in Japan on September 15, 2016, and in China on the same date for the PS4. It will have a February 14, 2017 North American release date, and the game has been announced for a European release.


    i want:

    OST release date
    An real phone APP with some kind of interactivity with Isekai-Navi
    Persona 5 The Animation: The Day Breakers air date
    FREE DLCs……… (ok U,U this is hard)



      PERSONA 5 DIAMOND for Vita!!!

    Please tell me someone got the new music before the live stream began?

  • gundam-meowth

    Oh god damn. I didn’t realize it was starting today :((( Thought it was just the 19th damn itttt.

  • Noobster

    Futaba’s height concerns me. Either the angle is wrong or something wrong with my eyes.

    • Valwin Mediaz

      that just makes her hot

      • Lusankya

        Agreed. I like short women.

    • Lusankya

      She’s the shortest (human) member of the group. Although on this comparison screen it looked like she would at least reach the height of MC’s shoulders.


    • twincast

      MC is 175 cm, they are pretty much equally far from the “camera”, and Futaba is about two heads shorter, so she’s (at age 15-16 probably almost fully grown, height-wise at) about… 140 cm? Well, “women under 150 cm” are, albeit nevertheless rare, common enough to be an actual “category” in Japan, but it still looks weird.

  • RoderickThe13

    Man, Yusuke looks like a maniac in his cut-in.

    • Leonel Pereyra

      Yusuke seems really… JoJo like, with his AOA Pose and the fact that he’s voiced by Young Joseph helps a bit.

  • Reika Mizushima

    More letters got revealed on the otakara website, so the only thing I got now is:
    #6 共犯者(コープキャラ)全解禁
    So we’ll see the other cooperation characters tomorrow.

    • Valwin Mediaz

      the 2nd tier ones ?

  • Shadowriver

    You could add CET/CEST timezone to time tables, it’s used by majority of European countries (from west border of Spain to east border of Poland), only 3 contries (might be more small once) in europe use GMT/BST, UK, Iceland and Portugal

    • twincast

      Keeps baffling me that Persona Central don’t list CET/CEST.

      And it also keeps baffling me that Spain & France (and to a lesser degree also the Benelux countries) don’t use the time zone they fall squarely into.

      • Lusankya

        Actually France used UTC+0 before WWII. During the world war it got changed in the occupied territories by Germany and later the Vichy authorities kept it at UTC+1 for all of Metropolitan France. After the war ended they were supposed to change back to UTC+0, but for some reason the French government canceld this decision and kept UTC+1.

        It’s similar for Spain, Franco changed the clocks in 1940 to be in line with German occupied Europe. They never changed back after the war ended.
        Although there are some proposals to change it back to GMT to improve productivity and general quality of life as Spain has quite late sunsets and sunrises.

        So you could say the Germans are at fault again.

        • twincast

          Thanks. Makes sense.

          Maybe whenever the EU finally gets around to getting rid of daylight saving time, those two will use the occasion to readjust – particularly since Central Europe (sadly) seems to favor the Russian way of extending “summer time” over the whole year.

  • ElementaB

    Face it, not for 3 hours till real stuff happens.

  • ElementaB

    Damnit I should have gone ;.;

    Also those Fubi earphones 400 bucks but worth it

  • twincast

    If I understood ’em correctly, people outside the main group – like that one boy – can join in the Mementos grinding dungeon.

  • twincast

    And Morgana’s car form is really called “Morganacar”. XD

  • twincast

    It’s both adorable and annoying how they’re still acting as if Goro joining the Phantom Thieves were a secret.

  • Irving Lee

    So why are they acting like Goro is the red-headed stepchild?

  • Diogo Pereira

    did we miss something? number 6 and 7 are still locked

    • ElementaB

      they were stolen ;.;

  • Seems the schedule wasn’t accurate.

  • ElementaB

    Can you guys give anymore details about demo locations and exact times so I know when to just say screw work lol

  • Valwin Mediaz

    they added shitload of girls today holy shit

    • Lusankya

      The ratio is exactly 50:50 as of now.

      • twincast

        It is indeed. Must have been the chat screaming “waifu” all the time that warped mine (and others’) impression.

        • Valwin Mediaz

          if you count the little kid and the oldguy which i dont

          • twincast

            Well, sure, if you’re only going for “possibility remotely within reason in present day mainstream media of getting to date them”…

          • Valwin Mediaz

            i was talking in sense of looking interesting like getting my attention

          • twincast

            Well, I find interaction with characters outside the standard age range comfort zone to be interesting; certainly more so than the fortune teller or the Catholic girl.

          • Valwin Mediaz


      • Valwin Mediaz

        too bad the waifus is were is at

        wait i mean too good
