Make sure you grab the free theme on the PS4, before it disappears!
Gather ’round, gaming boys and girls. We have ourselves a good news, bad news situation. For the bad news, Persona 5 has been delayed. Again. You can forget about ignoring your special someone on the most holy day for relationships. The new date is April 4th, 2017, or as no one celebrates: World Rat Day. (It appears to be real.) They say it is to ensure a high standard of quality, but, maybe, it is for the best. Atlus knows fewer relationships will be ruined that way.
Not to be greedy, but what do we get for having to wait two more long months for a game that those lucky Japanese gamers are already enjoying for a second time? The first bonus will be dual audio for the PS4 and the PS3. For those of you who like your questions to end with –ka, that is huge. It will be delivered as DLC, but they promise it will always be free.
Continuing with everyone’s favorite price tag, do you like to customize your PS4 menu? They are giving away a free theme for the character, Ryuji Sakamoto, on the PS4, but it is only available for 24 hours, so you need to hit the PSN store ASAP.
They have also made some art updates to the special “Take Your Heart” edition of the game. The soundtrack CD has pictures of Justine and Caroline from the Velvet Room, and the artbook and SteelBook have been updated as well.
If you still want to get your hands on the game early, there will be a playable demo at the PlayStation Experience this year, along with some collector’s cards available at Atlus’ booth.
Lest we forget that the game is coming sooner than we think, Atlus had a Twitch stream today showing off the game, and you can watch that here. They also released a new trailer showing off the mechanics of the game. It starts with a strong BDSM vibe in the Velvet Room, but we are hoping it is not going to go anyway near 50 Shades of Persona.
Let us know in the comments if your heart is truly taken with this delay, or if your heart is under a strong lock and key since the gaming industry seems to delay everything anyway.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
