"Person 5" continues to gain attention among players in Japan, but those in the Western regions continue to wait for the release of the game. The great news is that the role-playing video game's Western release has already been confirmed to be on Feb. 14, 2017, and it won't be much of a torturous wait. Fortunately, there have been a good amount of spoilers, especially for "Persona 5" DLC packs, for those who still don't have a copy of the game.

As mentioned in a previous report by GamenGuide, developer Atlus is set to introduce "Persona 5" DLCs in the form of costumes this December. The company will be celebrating the series' 20th Anniversary Fes from Dec. 8 and Dec. 18. To show appreciation to fans, Atlus will give away free DLCs to those who are in attendance.

The "Persona 5" DLCs that are part of the giveaways for the December event include the 20th Anniversary theme set for PS3 and PS4 players; the anniversary logo featuring the Morgana Car sticker; and the Maid & Butler costume set for "Persona 5." It should be noted that the DLCs won't be available right away for participants. This will be reserved for a later date but without additional fees.

Meanwhile, Atlus USA is also preparing for the release of "Persona 5" to the Western markets by releasing the trailer for the English character Ann Takamaki. The feisty blonde will be voiced by Erica Harlacher, who was also featured in the first trailer discussing her character. Harlacher said in the interview that she's excited about being cast as Ann Takamaki in the game since she's also a "Persona" game fan.

The voice actress described Ann to be generally intimidating but deep down she's a good person. Check out the full interview below and stay tuned GamenGuide for more "Persona 5" news and updates!
