The hype train continues.
Atlus hosted a livestream last week, showing off a brand new trailer for the highly anticipated JRPG Persona 5, and also announced its Japanese release date. The trailer gave us a look at a lot of new content to be included in the game, but the highlight was probably the slew of new characters and party members you’ll be able to interact with.
Up until now, all of the Persona 5 footage we’ve seen has only shown the protagonist, his cat companion, and two other party members. This latest trailer gave us our first look at four other characters. Thanks to Persona Central, below are a couple of images featuring the character portraits of the main party members to be starring in Persona 5. These portraits were featured on the “What’s New” section of the PS3 navigation menu.
Atlus has also announced that there will be more Persona 5 news to be revealed at the E3 conference in Los Angeles this June, so maybe we’ll hear more about an English release date then.
