TGS 2014: Oh look, it's Persona 5's first real trailer photo
TGS 2014: Oh look, it's Persona 5's first real trailer
by Josh Tolentino

Took 'em long enough! Atlus has finally revealed Persona 5 with a gloriously vague anime trailer for the game, due out on PS3 - and PS4 - next year.

The latest mainline entry in the Persona series will be directed by Katsura Hashino, feature character designs from Shigenori Soejima, and music composed by Shoji Meguro. 

From the looks of the trailer the setting appears to be returning to the big city, with a prominent shot of a Shibuya-style pedestrian scramble, during which a young, protagonist-looking high-schooler wearing a blazer-based school uniform experiences some good ol' frozen time and that telltale summoning fire. The color palette leans on red, black, and white (differing from Persona 3's blues and Persona 4's yellows), and all the text features the breaking of chains and shackles, reinforcing earlier taglines about "emancipation". 

Not especially fond of the title font, but that's just me nitpicking at this point. Watch the trailer and get hype!
