Persona 5 Official Artbook Released in English as an E-Book for First Time

The Persona 5 Official Design Works finally released in English as an e-book, which is almost 100 pages more than the physical version.

Persona 5‘s official artbook has finally gotten an English release as an e-book for the first time. The Persona 5 Official Design Works e-book is 512 pages total, a far cry from the 432 page physical English version that released back in November 2017.

One of the major additions to the English digital version is the extensive interview with character designer Shigenori Soejima, which came out in November 2016. Some of the other previously omitted material included now is official promotional artwork, in-game art, character design pages with creator comments, concept art, and sketches with notes also translated in English.

If you want to purchase the e-book, it’s now available on the Google Play store. You can also check out the video and gallery below showcasing more of the artbook.

On April 24 and 25, Atlus revealed new trailers for Persona 5 Royal and Persona 5 Scramble during the Persona Super Live P-Sound Street 2019 concerts. Attendees of the concerts also received a special short edition of Famitsu focusing on Persona 5 Royal. That Famitsu pamphlet is now available for free digitally on Persona‘s official Japanese website.

More screenshots have been released for the upcoming Royal remake thanks to Famitsu, a recent interview revealed that there will be a save bonus for those who played the original Persona 5, and we even have more gameplay gleaned from a new trailer.

You can check out our glowing review of the original title, when it first released back in 2017. If you haven’t gotten around to playing that version yet, you can purchase Persona 5 here.
