Atlus described Yusuke:
He can most aptly be described as an artistic savant, and his love for aesthetics and talent for art is second to none. Unlike the rest of the Phantom Thieves, this Bohemian beatnik attends Kosei High School and joins the motley crew after a very fateful event involving his art mentor/idol Madarame. Although Yusuke can be eccentric, codename Fox harnesses his love of true beauty to help the Phantom Thieves. I mean, it wouldn’t be a group of social misfits without at least one starving artist right?
Atlus also shared a little about Makoto’s character:
Next up, we have Shujin Academy’s resident overachiever Makoto Niijima. So how did a straight-laced honor student and the student council president get involved with the mischievous Phantom Thieves? Let’s just say that it’s her duty to figure out the identities and motives of the group (she is student council president after all). Even though codename Queen appears to be the antithesis of a rebelling high schooler, she has a strong sense of morality and will do what she can for a righteous cause. Besides, it’s a probably a VERY good thing for the group to have an intelligent strategist formulate their heists. Just imagine if Ryuji had to plan them…
Furthermore, an interview with Makoto’s English voice actress, Cherami Leigh, was also posted.
Persona 5 was delayed to April 4th, 2017. However, a playable demo will be available at this year’s Playstation Experience. The event is on December 4th and 5th.
