The Persona 5 hype is intensifying with a TV special being aired just before the release of the actual game!. That TV special will include a portion with the cast and staff, and then a special anime which is tied to the game. A new ad has been aired for that anime portion as well:

The TV special is animated by A-1 Pictures, which is a different studio from the one animating the game’s own opening animation, which would be Production I.G. Titled Persona 5 the Animation -The Day Breakers-, the TV special anime will be aired on 3rd September.


Persona 5 hits Japanese PS4 and PS3 consoles this 15th September before being released internationally on 14th February 2016, also for the PS4 and PS3.
