Persona 5 (opens in new tab) is breaking its Valentine's date with fans outside of Japan. Atlus announced today that it's delaying the game to April 4, 2017, a little less than two months after its former February 14, 2017 release date. It's a heartbreaker for Western fans who have had little to do but watch their Japanese counterparts play since September 2016, and they let the anguish pour forth on Twitter.
Fortunately, it wasn't all bad news. Atlus confirmed that it will release Persona 5's original Japanese audio track as free DLC for both the PS4 and PS3 versions, effectively making it a dual audio release. And a free PS4 theme featuring Phantom Thief Ryuji Sakamato is available for less than 24 hours.
But enough about that, on to the horrified reaction gifs.
