You won’t need to wait much longer un­til the next in­stall­ment of the im­mensely pop­u­lar se­ries fi­nally ar­rives – pro­vided that you’re liv­ing in Ja­pan. Atlus, the de­vel­oper be­hind

and its spinoff se­ries, has re­cently an­nounced that will be launch­ing in Ja­pan for the PS3 and PS4 on Septem­ber 15 this year. Good news in­deed, con­sid­er­ing that the game was ini­tially sched­uled to be launched in Win­ter 2014, but was de­layed for un­known rea­sons to late 2015. Ob­vi­ously, it didn’t man­age to meet its se­cond dead­line ei­ther.

will fo­cus on the story of a 16-year old pro­tag­o­nist, known as The Phan­tom, who has re­cently been trans­ferred to Syu­jin High School in Tokyo, Ja­pan. There, he be­friends the ju­ve­nile delin­quent Ryuji Sakamoto, the reclu­sive Anne Taka­maki, art stu­dent Yusuke Kita­gawa, and a mag­i­cal shape-shift­ing talk­ing cat known as Mor­gana.

To­gether, they form a group called the ‘Phan­tom Thieves of Hearts’, and ex­plore a mys­te­ri­ous place known as ‘The Palace’, which is pur­port­edly con­ceived by “the dis­torted mind of adults”. The Ja­panese re­lease of

will in­clude a spe­cial ‘20th An­niver­sary Col­lec­tor’s Edi­tion’, which comes chock-full of good­ies such as a

art­book, a five-disc Per­sona sound­track an­thol­ogy, a ‘Spe­cial

Art trea­sure box’, and a num­ber of down­load­able con­tent in the form of spe­cial out­fits. With such a boun­ti­ful of­fer­ing, it’s hardly any sur­prise that it will be re­tail­ing for a whop­ping 13,800 yen (ap­prox. RM512) when it ar­rives.

Suf­fice to say, we’ll be learn­ing more about and (hope­fully) de­tails about its in­ter­na­tional avail­abil­ity dur­ing E3 2016, which will be hap­pen­ing from June 14 to 16 in Los An­ge­les, Cal­i­for­nia.
