Dubbed "Persona 5" Trailer Steps into the Velvet Room
Ah, there’s that familiar music. Atlus USA shared a new English trailer for Persona 5, this time taking a step into the Velvet Room for a look at its characters and gameplay mechanics. Watch as Igor breaks it down for us in the video below.
Atlus describes P5 like so:
Persona 5 is a game about the internal and external conflicts of a group of troubled youth who live dual lives. They have the typically ordinary day-to-day of a Tokyo high-schooler – attending class, after school activities and part-time jobs. But they also undertake fantastical adventures by using otherworldly powers to enter the hearts of people. Their power comes from the Persona, the Jungian concept of the “self;” the game’s heroes realize that society forces people to wear masks to protect their inner vulnerabilities, and by literally ripping off their protective mask and confronting their inner selves do the heroes awaken their inner power, and use it to strive to help those in need. Ultimately, the group of Phantom Thieves seeks to change their day-to-day world to match their perception and see through the masks modern-day society wears.
Persona 5 hits PS3 and PS4 in the Americas and Europe on April 4.
