The Atlus game has been long in the West and we finally have an answer. The English dub of ‘Persona 5 Strikers’ suffered a severe delay due to the pandemic in 2020.
If you are an inveterate fan of the franchise, you have surely killed time with ‘Persona 5 Royal’, while its next edition came out in the West without success.
The good news is that at least we already have an idea of what happened to the Atlus title thanks to a interview with actress Erika Harlacher
Moris is the voice of Morgana in ‘Persona 5 Strikers’, so they both commented on their experience with the dubbing of this edition and how it was this work that delayed its release.
According to the actresses, the recordings were scheduled to begin in April 2020, at which point Japan’s state of emergency took effect.
Thinking that it would only last a couple of weeks, the production stopped until it understood that the situation had changed and that a remote recording would be necessary.
After four weeks of waiting, the necessary equipment was sent to each actor to record on their own and thus a team of technicians would carry out the mixes after finishing.
