We still do not know why Square Enix has decided to push back their upcoming new Final Fantasy XV game but could it be because they wanted to avoid all the conflicts.
September should be a huge month for JRPG fans are we are expecting to see games like Dragon Quest VII and Persona 5 release in the same month. Maybe Square Enix did not want the Final Fantasy XV to get in the way if their other game, Dragon Quest VII?
Whatever the reason, their Japanese fans would probably be happy that they won’t have to choose between Persona 5 and Final Fantasy XV now. They can enjoy Persona 5 first while Square Enix takes their own sweet time with the Final Fantasy XV. In fact, it has been reported that Persona 5 pre-order sales have spiked to the number 2 spot on Amazon.jp.
Persona 5 will be arriving in Japan on the 15th of September while the Dragon Quest VII is now available on Nintendo 3DS.
