Persona 5's release date may finally be announced in a few weeks

Summer is right around the corner, which means this countdown could very well be the release date announcement we've been waiting for.


A special announcement for Persona 5 has been revealed early this morning.

The Japanese website for Persona 5 currently has a countdown clock, which is counting down to an announcement on May 5, 2016. The website has the words “Take Your Heart” displayed along with an image of a mask and a top hat.

The mask and top hat is an obvious nod at Persona 5’s main protagonist, who is nicknamed The Phantom. As The Phantom, the protagonist wears a mask, although we haven’t seen him wear a top hat before. While he’s not the only character to wear a mask in the upcoming game, the style of the mask appears to resemble the one he wears.

Persona 5 was originally expected to release in 2015, but its release date was then pushed back to Summer 2016. Considering how close we are to the start of Summer, we have a feeling the upcoming announcement may be an official release date.
