"Persona 5" is Atlus' latest and upcoming addition to their ever-growing series. As of the moment, not much has been spilled for the title, but the few that have been spoken of are apparently the most appealing ones.

Being in development for quite some time, "Persona 5" has struck the fancy of many gamers, both the newcomers and the loyal followers. Because of the wait that fans have to endure, Atlus may have promised a few collectibles and exclusive items for those who wish to take the experience to a new level.

According to Christian Times, there will be two provided editions for all collectors alike: the SteelBook Launch Edition and the Take Your Heart Premium Edition. Both have their own distinct offers, though the Take Your Heart Premium Edition has a more distinct price difference.

The "Persona 5" SteelBook Launch Edition is rated at about $71.88, whereas the Take Your Heart Premium Edition comes at a rate of $104.56. This will include a 4"/10cm keychain of Morgana, the cat of the Phantom Thieves, as well as a classy soundtrack from musical composer Shoji Meguro.

As per Parent Herald, despite the beauty of the aforementioned "Persona 5" feats, the wait may still a bit excessive, especially for the western territories. It was once rumored that the game will not reach the said hemisphere, but has now been confirmed otherwise.

The North American areas are urged to wait for "Persona 5" for over 5 months, as it is slated for release on February 14, 2017. Japanese gamers are considerably fortunate as the game will arrive for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 by September 15, 2016.

For those unaware, the role-playing game "Persona 5" takes on the story of teenage students with the abilities to summon a different identity and powers. These characters aim to take on an unjust system while keeping their youthful lives intact, interacting seamlessly all throughout the missions.

Stay tuned for more updates on Atlus' "Persona 5".
