The French PlayStation Store has been updated to include a listing for Persona 5 Ultimate Edition. Listed at €99,99 (that’s roughly $117.60, although that doesn’t mean that’s what it’ll cost when it comes out in North America), the upgraded version of Persona 5 contains a number of additions. It includes all of the game’s DLC, which includes several Personas and costumes that reference other games, and an additional difficulty called Merciless.
Here’s the full list of features found in Persona 5 Ultimate Edition (description via PlayStation Store):
- Persona 5
- all additional Personas
- all special costumes
- Healing Item Set
- Skill Card Set
- audio in Japanese
- a new level of difficulty (Merciless)
For even more on Atlus’ role-playing game, check out our Persona 5 review. Here’s a snippet of what I had to say about it.
One of the most captivating aspects of Persona 5 is the staggering amount of style it displays. Everything from the menu presentation to the scene transitions are covered with personality. It may not be a technical showcase like Horizon Zero Dawn, but there’s zero doubt in my mind that this’ll age considerably better than its contemporaries. Throw in an incredible jazz soundtrack (that really adds to the heist scenes), and Atlus has easily created one of the most stylish games ever made.
Persona 5 is proof that few titles can compare to a truly great role-playing game. Over its 60 hour playtime I got to forge meaningful friendships with an eccentric cast of characters, discover the secrets of Tokyo, and even managed to find some nice restaurants to dine at. The time investment might seem like a lot, but rarely is time wasted when spent with friends. It doesn’t reinvent the genre, as it largely builds upon Persona 4‘s stellar base, but it adds a level of polish that is simply lacking from its contemporaries.
Persona 5 is available now on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.
