With less than a month until release Deep Silver, via parent company Koch Media and developer ATLUS, have begun releasing new promotional content for the JPRG Persona 5 and during the past week two new gameplay trailers have been released; both of which highlight different aspects of the game.
The first gameplay trailer, known as Sizzle, gives potential players an idea of what to expect from the game with various different gameplay elements, such as anime cut-scenes, visual-novel-dialogue, turn-based-combat and social intergration, being shown off in English Dubbed format.
The second gameplay trailer on the otherhand, which is known as the Velvet Room introduction, introduces players to the Velvet Room hostesses known as Caroline & Justine and the abilities that can be unlocked while here.
As the press release states The Velvet Room is place where Personas can be experimented on with reckless abandon, but there’s a catch. (Remember, there’s ALWAYS a catch.) Since the protagonist is a prisoner of his own Velvet Room, he must earn the privilege of being a Persona mad scientist. Although basic fusion and registration are immediately available to the prisoner, features such as advanced/network fusion, training, strengthening, and others are not. That’s where the Twin Wardens Caroline and Justine come in. Not only are they Igor’s assistants, but they also happen to be the “rehabilitation” officers who will be overseeing the protagonist during his stay. By spending time with them (completing prison work), additional fun experimentation options will unlock. Oh, and in case you can’t tell them apart, Caroline is the mean one and Justine is the nice one.
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.
Persona 5 will be available from the 4th April 2017 for the PS4 and PS3 within the UK and Europe. A Limited Edition and Day 1 Edition of the game will also be made available for a limited period of time.
