Atlus updated the official website of Persona 5 with a character profile for the handsome detective Goro Akechi, details on what you can do after school, Safe Rooms in the Palace, and more.
Goro Akechi (CV: Soichiro Hoshi)
Goro Akechi may be a high school student, but he’s also a young man with the title of detective. His talent is top-notch, and the number of cases he solved are said to be much higher than even those of criminal investigation agencies.
Together with his figure that attracts attention, he’s known as the “The Second Coming of Detective Prince.” The Phantom Thieves that have been creating a sensation has recently piqued his interest.
The next part tells us more about the school life, such as what can you do after school?
When school is over for the day, you can go hang out with friends, watch movies, go to the public bathhouse and much more. Again, it’s also possible to pick up a part-time job to make some money. You can spend this time to master various talents or skills with enough effort.
In Persona 5, you’ll get to choose the game’s difficulty at the start. Since its difficulty doesn’t affect the story at all, those who are new to the series or players who are mostly interested in the story are recommended to start out with Safety or Easy modes. Keep in mind that going Safety doesn’t allow you to change difficulty later.
While exploring the Palace, there are “Safe Rooms,” where you can take a break or save your game. Again, while inside a Safe Room, you’ll get to move to another Safe Room and use it as a shortcut inside the Palace.
Persona 5 releases in Japan on September 15, 2016 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. The game will release on February 14 in North America, South America, and Europe.
