We get plenty of screenshots and an introduction of the new characters appearing in the game.
The redhead girl Sophia is actually an AI that can materialize in the alternate reality, but in the real world she resides in the hero’s smartphone.
She has completely lost her memories and the only thing she remembers is her purpose of becioming good friends with people.
While she behaves mysteriously, she is pure in her intents and she works hard to help the Phantom Thieves. She can also fight the shadows by using abilities similar to Personas.
Zenkichi Hasegawa is a police officer who is searching for the truth behind the mental breakdowns aoccurring all over Japan.
Police already decided that the Phantom Thieves are involved, and dispatched Hasegawa-san from the Koto Prefectural Police to establish a contact.
While his behavior is ambivalent, he can be ruthless, and it’s unclear whether he’s a friend or a foe.
