A new trailer was shown yesterday during the Persona livestream that shows off a lot of what the game is about. The visual style and music is particularly interesting because they went with a very colorful and 60’s/70’s feel. The menu is also very fluid and has its own unique style. Atlus might have a big hit with this new version of the game. During an interview with Famitsu, Hashino shed some light on what the game is going to be about.
Talking about the teaser image in our featured image: …. I feel that in today’s world, there’s no shortage of people that are bored and discontent with their lives. They’re at a dead end, chained down to a world of which they resent being a part. Persona 5, in that sense, is a game about freedom, the kind that those sorts of people haven’t had living in the real world.I want them to be able to attain that sensation by playing through the game. Looking at it from that angle, I’d say that the image depicts the way that must be endured for that moment of freedom to arrive.
