persona 5John Hardin has commented on the possibility of adding Japanese audio to the English version of the upcoming Persona 5.

The press relations manager for Atlus USA and Sega of America first stated that fans should tempered their expectations as they are “throwing everything” at the English dub. With that said, he is currently looking at whether or not the Japanese voices can be added via a DLC pack although he admitted that this will be a “monumentally massive task.” For now, fans should only expect English voices at launch.

The previous games in the series, including Persona 3 and Persona 4, did not support the dual language option (English and Japanese) when released in the west.

Persona 5 is slated to come out later this year on the 15th of September in Japan and will be arriving approximately five months later on the 14th of February in 2017 for the North American region. The latest game from the Persona series is a cross-gen title as it is coming to both the PlayStation 4 in addition to the PlayStation 3.
