Typically anime and manga adaptations of games are not canon, but I was curious as to whether this the case here.

Can anyone shed some light?

PS: Persona 5 is a gorgeous JRPG and I strongly recommend playing it.

    Persona 4: The Animation was considered to be a faithful adaptation to the game, so it's possible that P5 manga also faithfully adapts the game (just a thought).

Granted that the content is not that much different from the game (aside from some dialog and translation).

Unless someone can prove otherwise, I do believe that the manga will be considered cannon but with the game as the original source of the material.
