Atlus Reveals Persona 5 DLC for the West, Urges Fans in Japan to Not Disturb Tokyo Residents (Update)


One of our readers, Gaijin, pointed us to a thread that he came across online where Persona fans exchange photos following the performance of what they call the “Persona 5 pilgrimage” to locations that are depicted in the game. Some of these include baths, local businesses etc. Atlus’ message suggests that while photographing said places, some fans end up being a nuisance. Understandably, this is annoying. These aren’t exactly tourist locations either so we can see why the developer felt the need to publish the message below.

Original story:

Over on its official Twitter account, Atlus USA has been detailing Persona 5‘s DLC plans for the West alongside offering brief previews for each, and sharing Confidant trailers.

While DLC pricing and release schedule will be announced at a later date, here’s what we’ll get:

  • Persona 4 Yasogami High School uniforms (preview)
  • Izanagi & Izanagi Picaro (preview)
  • Shin Megami Tensei IV costume (preview)
  • Persona 3‘s Thanatos and Thanatos Picaro (preview)
  • Vincent from Catherine costume DLC (preview)
  • Persona 4‘s Kaguya and Kaguya Picaro (preview)
  • Devil Summoner Raidou Kuzunoha outfits (preview)
  • Persona 4: Dancing All Night costume DLC (preview)
  • Persona 3‘s Orpheus and Orpheus Picaro (preview)

We’ll continue to update this list and will let you know when prices and a release schedule are announced. To check out a series of Confidant trailers, head over here.

In other Persona 5 news, Atlus has actually had to urge fans in Japan to refrain from disturbing residents of Tokyo’s Sangenjaya, which the in-game Yongenjaya is inspired by. Apparently, they’ve been dropping by and annoying the locals. A post on its official website (translated by Kotaku), asks fans to not engage in actions “that violate society’s manners” including littering, damaging property, and trespassing. Oh dear!

Persona 5 releases worldwide on April 4 this year.
