With Persona 5 and Final Fantasy XV both being high profile JRPGs with a slated 2016 release date, a survey released by the company Square Enix asks fans whether they would prefer Final Fantasy XV or Persona 5 if they were both released together.
If Persona 5 and Final Fantasy XV were released at the same time, which would you prefer [to buy]?
The possible answers are:
- Persona 5
- Final Fantasy XV
If Persona 5 is selected as the preference, the following question 48 asks for the reason behind the choice.
- Because it’s a domestic (Japanese) RPG
- Because I like Atlus games
- Because the promotion of the game sparked my interest
- Because I like the Persona series
- Because I heard of the game’s reputation
- Because the characters are appealing
- Because the world is appealing
Because this survey question specifically compares Final Fantasy XV with Persona 5, it suggests that Square Enix is considering the effect of both games releasing alongside each other—with Persona 5 slated for a Summer 2016 release date in Japan—and gauging how the preference among fans compares with their upcoming RPG to Atlus’.
Persona 5 is slated to be released for the PS3 and PS4 in Japan in Summer 2016, with a 2016 North American release date. Final Fantasy XV is set for release for the PS4 and Xbox One in 2016.
