Atlus has released a new trailer for Persona 5 showcasing some of the game’s various mechanics.
The new Persona 5 trailer reveals more about what players will be facing inside the game’s dungeons or Palaces as they are called. It seems players will not only be battling their way through the game’s dungeons but will also be sneaking by and ambushing unsuspecting enemies. Battles will also consist of more than just beating up your enemies, as players will also be able to occasionally speak to their foes rather than just simply beating them up. Besides focusing on some of the game’s mechanics we also get to seem more of the game’s striking visual art style, which we love.
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 is set to release in April for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.
