ATLUS and Deep Silver continue to tease fans with English-centric gameplay of Persona 5 and today fans get a closer look at Ryuji Sakamoto; one of the main protagonists featured within the upcoming JPRG game for the PS4 and PS3.
According to description sent out by Deep Silver Ryuji Sakamoto was a promising track star who tragically suffered a career ending injury due to “overtraining” by the sadistic coach Kamoshida. With no future in the sport he loves and experiencing first-hand the evil of “shitty adults,” Ryuji becomes a social pariah who rebels against a society he perceives as corrupt. Even though he’s the definition of a troublemaker, he has a kind heart and always puts the Phantom Thieves before himself. In short, Ryuji is a true friend that can always be counted on to have your back in a jam. Plus, having a tough guy with a skull mask in your crew is just awesome.
You can get a glimpse into this ‘troubled lifestyle’ in the character trailer released this week:
In addition to this ‘gameplay snippet’ ATLUS and Deep Silver have also produced an interview with Max Mittelman, the english voice actor for Ryuji; an interview which you can watch below:
Persona 5 will be released exclusively onto the PS4 and PS3 early next year with pre-orders now available across numerous retailers.
