But of course Lelouch is in Persona 5 trailer!


Also, dancing!

[Update: Courtesy of Gematsu, an alternate link to the trailer has been found. Check it out below!]

Much to some fans' disappointment, Persona 5 didn't make a huge splash at E3 this year. Rather than put Atlus' latest opus up on that fancy stage, they instead decided to bundle the hype machine alongside its latest release. Folks in Japan got a new trailer on discs that came with copies of Persona 4 Dancing All Night, the PS Vita rhythm game whose amazing intro I embedded just now. Watch that instead for now, and then imagine something just as stylish but the exact opposite in tone is the new trailer.

But why would I embed the Dancing All Night and not the Persona 5 trailer? That's because Atlus is being real gung-ho about tamping down on leaks the last few days, and most of the usual sites got taken down within a few hours. There are places to get the file at least, and it shows some new gameplay, as well as voice acting for the game's protagonist courtesy of Jun "Lelouch Lamperouge" Fukuyama. Fukuyama also seems to be doing the customary "I art thou, thou art I" voice for the trailer as well, challenging players to "make them reflect upon their blasphemies, for the sake of the justice they once believed in".

Sounds dark, man. At least there'll probably be a dance party in a couple of years to bring back that cheer, right?
