Atlus will be finally be releasing the long-awaited Persona 5 later this year, and thanks to a new interview with series chief director Katsura Hashino we now have a lot of new information on the game.
According to Hashino, Persona 5’s will be unique compared to games in the series’ past, with each one standing apart from the others. He says, “There are things that make them all different, and each dungeon will be thoroughly enjoyable.”
He then goes on to discuss the game’s theme, saying, “Thanks to having a bit of a stereotypical theme with “phantom thief,” it made it possible to be able to put in work that will surprise the players. From there, they’re looking to mix in contemporary drama with the likeness of Persona, to create something that can express the fun of entertainment.”
A lot more details are also given on characters like Ryuji Sakamoto, Ann Takamaki, Morgana and Yusuke Kitagawa, which you can check out by clicking right here.
Persona 5 is set to launch in the Summer of this year for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in Japan, with a US release expected to happen later in the year.
