Persona 5 Introduces New Characters Makoto Niijima, Futaba Sakura, And Haru Okumura



Last week, Atlus revealed the latest trailer for Persona 5, where we got to see three new characters. This week’s issue of Famitsu magazine introduces us to Makoto, Futaba, and Haru. [Thanks, Zaregoto.]


Keep in mind that the names are subject to change once we get an official romanization from Atlus.



Makoto Niijima [CV: Rina Sato]

Persona: Johanna


A third-year student who attends the same high school as the protagonist. President of the student council with high morals and a strong sense of responsibility. Active and earnest, a straight-laced honor student who can’t be compromised with.


Futaba Sakura [CV: Aoi Yuki]

Persona: Necronomicon (the UFO that was in the trailer)


A young girl who is considered a programming prodigy with inhumane computing abilities. She’s the age of a first-year high school student, but on top of having difficulties in communicating with others, a certain incident has caused her to be a shut-in.


Haru Okumura [CV: Haruka Tomatsu]

Persona: Milady


A third-year high school student and daughter of the president of a big food service manufacturer. Refined but seen little of life, but unlike Sakura, Haru has watched a lot of people and has gained high communication skills.


Additionally, it’s been revealed that Igor is voiced by Masane Tsukayama. Justine and Caroline are both voiced by Aki Toyosaki.


Persona 5 will release in Japan on September 15, 2016 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.
