New “Persona 5” Trailer Showcases Story Elements and Game Mechanics

The newest game in the Persona franchise released a new trailer that shows the bases for the story and some gameplay along with it. To view the trailer and more details about the game read after the break!

Atlus describes the game as this:

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.

The game is scheduled to release on February 14th for the Americas and Europe on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. For more information on the game, visit Atlus’ page here!

Update: Persona 5 has been delayed to April 4th, right after I made the post. Nice.
