Enjoy Persona 5’s Opening Theme with Vocals by Singer Lyn


During the Persona Special Stage show at this year’s Tokyo Game Show, Atlus showed off the game’s opening theme with lyrics.

The vocals are performed by soul singer Lyn Inaizumi (you can listen to more of her stuff here), while series veteran Shoji Meguro handled the musical composition of the song.

Persona 5 is set to release sometime in Summer 2016 in Japan, with the North American and European release coming sometime in 2016.

Editor’s Note: The story originally stated the singer was South Korean singer Lyn, when it is actually Japanese singer Lyn Inaizumi.

    South Korean? Nice to have a bit of diversity, with a Persona opening in a different dialect of Engrish.

    Not going to lie, I didn’t like her at first, but her performance is quickly growing on me.

    They allow South Korean people in Japan? I thought they despise each other. Truly Persona 5 is the most progressive of games.

    Atlus for now hasnt focused on pandering to mediocrity that is anisong idols. Half their songs make me wish I was deaf.

    Meh. It’s not bad, but I’m sure not going to leave the title screen up to listen to it.

    Hmm, guess I’m in the ‘gotta warm up to it crowd’. She can certainly sing. I like the muisc, but the timing seems to not match the tune. Maybe I’ll grow to like it like the other comments.

    There are a bunch of South Koreans living in Japan. And there are a bunch of Japanese living in South Korea.

    Yeah they have a history of bad animosity, but it’s not like every single people is banned from each others’ country.

    He was in the video that came with the Japanese version of P4: DAN though. GameSpot made it out to be like he debuted in this trailer, but he was definitely there before. I think you might be right on him having more of a presence in this trailer though? I need to compare them again.

    It’s not the Korean singer Lyn. It’s a Japanese singer named Lyn Inaizumi. Look up her YouTube page.

    I’m putting my bets on an early 2017 for the west.

    It’s just a derogatory insulting terms used in each others’ language. Kind of like the American way of calling Mexicans spick, Chinese chink, or African Americans niggers. The Korean term is read as “jok-bal-e” and the Japanese term is read as “chosen-jin”.

    But like I said, it’s rare to find people like those. Most South Koreans and Japanese people are friendly to one another. It’s just the political leaders and people from previous generations that always seems hold old grudges.

    Guess that was silly of me to think they mean something that would make sense outside of the culture.

    “spic” doesn’t mean much outside of itself Asa slur.

    I think they said they were attempting to release it worldwide. So unless it’s delayed again, 2016 for sure.

    You mean worldwide simultaneously? They said “sometime 2016“ for the west…while summer 2016 for Japan.

    Not liking the nonspecific release schedule for the west.

    But hey I’ll love if it releases close to the Japan release…but not holding my breath. Expecially when considering their past games…usually see 6 month(or more) delay between Jp and the west.

    Well “jok-bal” in Korean means pig feet. I think it means calling Japanese people pigs based on their straw sandals that they used to wear. Koreans wore different type of sandals and the word signified the way they dressed.

    On the other hand “cho-sen” is based on calling Korea’s previous kingdom of Joseon people when they fought against Japan during the Japanese invasion war. Since Korea lost a lot of the war, it signifies a time when Japan was considered superior to Korea and calling them by it means Koreans are inferior to Japanese.

    Or at least that’s where I think the roots come from.
