Persona 5 3rd PV is crazy awesome!


Skull Pirate Persona!

TGS 2015 rolls along like a hype driven Maglev train with new gaming reveals every day. Today ATLUS released another promotional video of Persona 5. Apart from showing off more gameplay and more cryptic clues behind the story of the game, ATLUS also announced that there will be delays for both versions of the game (PS3/4) til next summer. Persona 5 was previously scheduled for this year.

The trailer is more gameplay-heavy this time around. It shows the protagonist running around a heavily urbanised city compared to the country town of Inaba in Persona 4 and has interactive mini games a la the Yakuza series such as Baseball cages. I'm also digging the free running type dungeons to make the RPG sections a bit more interactive instead of randomly generated hallways. As always the charm and personality emanating from the animation, design, and thematic colour show that the team behind Persona still have the magic to pull in new players and old veterans. 

A cast list for the game has also been released;

  • Jun Fukuyama as Protagonist
  • Rina Satou
  • Aki Toyosaki
  • Nana Mizuki as An Takamaki
  • Hirohiko Kakegawa
  • Tomokazu Sugita
