Yesterday, Atlus USA revealed three of the Confidants, formally known as Social Links, that we will be spending some time with in Persona 5 and today we are introduced to another member of the Phantom Thieves, Futaba Sakura.
Already being dubbed "meme girl" or "Splatoon Squid Girl", Futaba will act as your navigator in Persona 5 like Fukka from Persona 3 and Rise from Persona 4. Since the dungeons in Persona 5 aren't randomized like they were before, the navigator will act a little differently this time around. Futaba can point you in the direction you need to go, find escape routes and provide the team major buffs when in battles.
She will be voiced by Erica Lindbeck. Some of Erica's other voice acting credits include Ema Skye from Phoenix Wright: Sprit of Justice, Terra from SMITE and Taliyah from League of Legends.
Be sure to check out Futaba Sakura's character trailer below as well as Atlus USA's interview with her voice actor. Also be sure to check out all of the previous character reveals by clicking the names below.
Persona 5 launches (hopefully) on April 4th for PS3 and PS4.
