The next member of Persona 5’s Phantom Thieves has appeared for her formal introduction. The hacker of the group is Futaba Sakura, voiced by Erica Lindbeck. She supports the rest of the group in the same way Fuuka did in Persona 3 and Rise did in Persona 4.

Futaba is a hikikomori who prefers to stay inside and interact with people and the world via the internet. She’s gifted with amazing technological prowess, which she uses to contact the heroes of Persona 5 and help the group. Her persona is Necronomicon.



Another video gives us a look at the person behind Futaba. Atlus’ PR Manager, John Hardin, spent almost four minutes interviewing Lindbeck about her thoughts on the heroine and game.



Previous Persona 5 introductions have been released for the protagonist, Ann, Ryuji, Morgana, Makoto, and Yusuke.


Persona 5 is now available in Japan for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. It will come to North America and Europe on April 4, 2017.
