To all those who are upset with Persona 5’s two month delay from its February 14th release to now April 4th…
Hi. I’m Adam aka CSRadical and a Persona fan like you, or at least I assume you are. So, uh…WHAT’S THE MATTER WITH YOU?!
The game is being delayed for two months. Hell, it’s actually less than two months, it’s 49 days. Seven weeks! How miserable is your life that waiting seven more weeks for a fucking video game is just too much to bear?!
Believe me, I’m disappointed that the game’s getting pushed back to April 4th. I’m not saying I’m 100% okay with it, but holy fucking hell I’m not throwing a temper tantrum and calling for Atlus and SEGA’s heads on a pike! The game isn’t being held back because SEGA and/or Atlus hate their fans, they’re not doing it in spite of anything, they’re fucking doing it to improve the game, especially in terms of the localization, which by the way is not the easiest thing to do, just ask the folks that were translating the Trails in the Sky series (here). How fucking stupid are you if you think they’re holding the game back for any reason other than making it better?! They want your money! They can’t get your money unless they ship the game out! They don’t break even from pre-orders, that just doesn’t happen, they have to release the game s people can spend actual fucking money on it!
Also, it’s not like they’re holding the game back two months and that’s it, they’re also apologizing to us fans by now adding dual-audio options in the game upon release. Not many games do this, having both Japanese and English voice acting available, it’s usually one or the other. But no, that’s not good enough, if Atlus and SEGA were truly sorry, they’d just release the game at my door right now and send me a legion of hot girls cosplaying as all the main Persona 3 and Persona 4 girls so I can have a massive orgy with them all. That’s the only acceptable solution, right?
The game is going to be amazing, guys. Early reviews of the Japanese version are calling the game the best in the series and possibly one of the best JRPGs of all-time. If that’s the case, what’s another two months? If it’s that good, it’ll be more than worth the wait.
I love the Persona series. I’m willing to wait just a little longer if it means the next game after eight long years of waiting will be in perfect shape.
