Picture this scenario: You're a JRPG fan. It's summer 2016, and you've got enough spare cash and time for one (and only one) game. Persona 5 (opens in new tab) and Final Fantasy 15 (opens in new tab) are both sitting on the shelf. Which do you take to the register? That's the question Square Enix is asking fans right now as part of a 50(!)-question survey (opens in new tab) on its Japanese website, and it might clue us in to a FF15 release date.
Currently, FF15 is slated for 2016. Actually, not even that is confirmed by Square Enix - director Hajime Tabata link (opens in new tab) that it would be available after 2015, but before 2017, so we’re making a wild conclusion there. The long-in-development RPG's final release date will be unveiled at a special event in March.
Persona 5, meanwhile, has an official window of summer 2016. If Square Enix is asking players which of these two highly-anticipated JRPGS they would choose, it stands to reason that the company is weighing release date options to maximize sales.
I highly doubt Square Enix will reveal results from its survey, so why don't we take our own poll: Final Fantasy 15 vs Persona 5, who do you take home?
