The E3 2016 event in Los Angeles featured plenty of great new games, and one of the games which were presented that people are vert much looking forward to is most definitely Persona 5. The official Atlus USA YouTube channel has started streaming the game’s E3 trailer:

The game will be released in Japan on 15 September 2016, before heading out west next year on Valentine’s Day, 14 February. Here is the game’s visual:


According to Atlus USA’s description of the game:

Persona 5 is a game about the internal and external conflicts of a group of troubled high school students – the protagonist and a collection of compatriots he meets in the game’s story – who live dual lives as Phantom Thieves. They have the typically ordinary day-to-day of a Tokyo high schooler: attending class, after-school activities, and part-time jobs. But they also undertake fantastical adventures by using otherworldly powers to enter the hearts of people. Their power comes from the Persona, the Jungian concept of the “self”; the game’s heroes realize that society forces people to wear masks to protect their inner vulnerabilities, and by literally ripping off their protective mask and confronting their inner selves do the heroes awaken their inner power, and using it to help those in need. Ultimately, the group of Phantom Thieves seeks to change their day-to-day world to match their perception and see through the masks modern society wears.

Now who is hyped? We surely are!
