Persona 5 Live Stream Set for May 5

persona 5 04-26-16-1

We now know the upcoming Persona 5 reveal will also have a NicoNico live stream broadcast.

The game’s official website was updated to show the protagonist threatening to “take Tokyo Tower” on May 5th.

The broadcast, viewable here, will go down at 9 PM Japan time, 5:30 AM Pacific and 8:30 Eastern.

Persona 5 is releasing sometime this summer in Japan for both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, with a western release sometime thereafter.

    Finally, more news/updates for this game to wash away the sinful disappointment that is Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE (AKA Not really an SMT X FE crossover)

    I guess I know when I’ll be working from home next week. I hope we get a solid release date this time.

    Very doubtful about there being censorship since Atlus is publishing on a non Nintendo console. And they’re aiming for a release that’s worldwide or AT LEAST a few weeks apart (I hope)

    Considering they advertised P5 in the west as well, I doubt they’d release in JP first and then wait a whole year or more to release in the west.

    Don’t even know whether to get excited anymore tbh. Atlus keeps telling me to go fuck myself :(

    It would be pure horror for me, not only because this is my first Persona game and after watching some Persona games, I really want to play this one so damn much. I really hope that there will be no censorship, but the reason why I say this, is Star Ocean 5. This still stings me a lot.

    Understandable. Afaik Atlus doesn’t pull punches when it comes to subject matter. See: Rise’s shadow pole dancing and humping the pole. Or even Catherine’s…well, everything. SMT IV had a lot of adult subject matter as well despite being on a Nintendo console. So I’m a bit more confident that Atlus won’t be swayed to censor.
