Last week, Atlus pulled back the curtain on Persona 5 and introduced the world to three brand new characters, however not much was known about them, until now. Reported by Siliconera, this weeks Famitsu magazine reveals details about each character including their names, their Persona and some of the backstory.
Persona - Johanna
Persona - Necronomicon
Persona - Milady
Reading all of this is just getting me more and more hyped. I think I am going to keep Makoto in my party most of the game because her Persona being a motorcycle is one of the most badass things I have ever seen in one of these games. The one thing I really want to learn about is how the Social Link system may be changing.
Here is last weeks trailer again courtesy of Youtube user Wyte Song, but this time the trailer has the dialogue and the UI translated in English.
Persona 5 launches in Japan on September 15th. No word yet on an Western release date but Atlus have confirmed that they along with Persona 5 will make an appearance at E3 this year. My guess is that they will show up at the Sony press conference and announce the North American release date then, but that is simply speculation on my part.
