Atlus showcased the newest trailer at PSX 2016 for their upcoming PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 RPG, Persona 5, with a closer look at its story along with info on digital pre-orders.
After having his life ruined, the main protagonist of the game must start anew as the newest transfer high-school student at Tokyo’s Shujin Academy. However, he’ll soon discover that he has the ability to enter the hearts of people and force them to confront their true selves (for better or worse). With his newly discovered powers, the protagonist and his raucous group of outcast friends form the Phantom Thieves of Hearts to help unmask the ills of society. It’s only a matter of time before their actions become noticed by undesirables, so will they be able to bring justice to everyone who deserves it in time?
Persona 5 is currently available for pre-order on the PlayStation Store. Here’s more info about it:
