Persona 5 Has Strict Limitations For Video And Streaming Content

Persona 5 has been so long in the works and now it’s finally here. While being one of the most exciting JRPGs that has caught the mainstream attention, it also one of the most restrictive when it comes to sharing the experience. The PS4 Share functions are disabled for most of the game, and now we have more detailed restrictions for those that can bypass that by having a capture card. The rules also applies to those making videos regarding the game as well.

Atlus USA has made clear what the limitations are. First off, of course, is not going to deep into spoilers

“Please, PLEASE do not post any specific plot points or story spoilers, and only talk about the game in broad strokes. (Good example: “The game deals with dark themes right off the bat, with a lecherous teacher and other corrupted individuals.” Bad example: “Players immediately run into trouble with the pervy teacher *spoiler*, whose actions go so far as to cause *spoiler*.”)

Then we have a strict cutoff where no content beyond the game’s in-game date of 7/7 should be shown. Videos have to be 90 minutes long each, don’t show any boss fights except the first one, not only show the cutscenes or animated scenes without showing other features like the dungeon crawling.

In other words, there’s plenty of rules to abide, so content creators and streamers, be sure to look at what you can and cannot do in the full post here.

Atlus is being spoiler-wary for good reason. For the most part it is a very linear story-driven experience, and watching them all will only spoil the experience- not only to those who may pick the game up later but those who are currently playing.

It is noted, however, such strict rules are not set in stone forever. As time goes there’s a possibility the policies here will be toned down.
