Atlus revealed a new trailer for the next iteration in the Persona series Atlus's popular RPG Persona 5 showcasing the game mechanics.
Persona 5 is a game about the internal and external conflicts of a group of troubled youth who live dual lives. They have the typically ordinary day-to-day of a Tokyo high-schooler – attending class, after school activities and part-time jobs. But they also undertake fantastical adventures by using otherworldly powers to enter the hearts of people. Their power comes from the Persona, the Jungian concept of the “self;” the game’s heroes realize that society forces people to wear masks to protect their inner vulnerabilities, and by literally ripping off their protective mask and confronting their inner selves do the heroes awaken their inner power, and use it to strive to help those in need. Ultimately, the group of Phantom Thieves seeks to change their day-to-day world to match their perception and see through the masks modern-day society wears.
It was also revealed that along with that it was also revealed that a Steel Book edition would be available for those who preorder the game. It contains a steel book case along with the standard edition of the game.
Persona 5 will be available on February 14, 2017 for the Playstation 4, and Playstation 3.
