Atlus and Deep Silver just announced the schedule for Persona 5’s DLC.
Given how much DLC games like Persona 4: Dancing All Night had it isn’t much of a surprise that Atlus decided to add a ton of it to Persona 5. Here’s what to expect and when to expect the Persona 5 DLC:
1. Costumes and music: If you enjoy Atlus games, you probably are a fan of the music in them. The Shin Megami Tensei and Persona games in particular have great music. Atlus has costume sets available for the Phantom Thieves from various other SMT and Persona games and even Catherine that come with their own battle music. Joker (protagonist) needs to be in a particular costume for the battle music to change to said DLC’s music. Each costume + music set will be available for £5.79 on PSN for PS3 and PS4.
April 11: Persona 3 and Persona 4 sets
April 18: Persona 2 and Shin Megami Tensei If… sets
April 25: Persona 4: Dancing All Night, Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, and Shin Megami Tensei IV sets
May 2: Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha and Catherine sets
2. Personas and items: There will be sets of Personas available for use in game from character Personas from previous games. These will be available for £2.49 for each set.
April 11: Orpheus and Orpheus Picaro, Izanagi and Izanagi Picaro Set
April 18: Thanatos and Thanatos Picaro, Magatsu Izanagi and Magatsu Izanagi Picaro sets
April 25: Asterius and Asterius Picaro, Tsukiyomi and Tsukiyomi Picaro sets
May 2: Messiah and Messiah Picaro set
3. FREE DLC: There’s also a lot of free DLC that includes the much requested Japanese Voice Overs.
April 4: Persona 5 Healing Card and Item sets, Japanese VA, Merciless Difficulty, 20th anniversary logo sticker for Morgana
April 11: Regular Clothes and School Uniforms set
April 18: Phantom Thieves Logo and Morgana Car Sticker
April 25: Swimsuit set
June 6: Maid and Butler Costume set, Christmas Costume set
4. Themes for PS4 and PS3: The Persona 5 interfaces, menus, and music are all awesome so themes are more than welcome. It is a pity that the best themes (I have them all from the Japanese release) are not being made available outside Japan and were Amazon Japan preorder exclusive. Each theme will come with an avatar set and cost £1.69.
April 4: Protagonist, Ryuji, Ann
April 11: Yusuke, Makoto, Futaba, Haru
April 18: Goro, Igor & Attendants
On PlayStation 3, they will cost £0.79 each and only include a theme for PS3 and not avatars.
Persona 5 is releasing tomorrow on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 and you can read why it is a must play here.
