Persona 5 Japanese Voice-Over DLC Wasn’t Planned In The Beginning; PS3 Version Won’t Be Cancelled
Persona 5, the latest entry of the series released in Japan back in September on PlayStation consoles, has yet to be released in North America and Europe, and the wait will be longer than anticipated, as the game by Atlus has been delayed to early April. Shortly following the confirmation of the delay, Atlus PR John Hardin further elaborated on some matters regarding the game.
According to what John Hardin revealed on the JRPG subreddit, the recently revealed Persona 5 Japanese voice-overs DLC wasn't planned in the beginning. The free DLC obviously isn't one of the reasons for the delay, but it's nice to see Atlus take advantage of the situation to offer more to those who are waiting for the game to finally release in the West.
With Persona 5 now releasing so late, many have speculated that the PlayStation 3 version of the game isn't going to be released as originally announced. John Hardin clarified on the matter, stating that Persona 5 will release on both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 as announced.
To clear this up (again): There is no credence to PS3 version of Persona 5 being cancelled.
Persona 5 will release on PS3 and PS4.

Even with the delay's announcement, it hasn't been just bad news for Persona 5 fans this week. Those attending the PlayStation Experience in Anaheim this year will be able to try out the game in English with a playable demo. The demo's content has yet to be detailed, but we will definitely hear more about the matter in the next few days.
Before the big livestream, a new Persona 5 trailer has also been released, showcasing some of the game's mechanics.
Persona 5 launches on April 4th in North America and Europe on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. We will keep you updated on Atlus' highly anticipated role paying game as soon as more comes in on it, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
