Atlus has released some new information about their upcoming dungeon-life simulation RPG Persona 5 for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.

The protagonist gets caught up in a mess that he didn’t directly ask for, but felt like he was doing the right thing. After the confrontation he was given a criminal record, but was this all a dream? The guards that approach him are twins and he is told that he must begin rehabilitation and obtain freedom. The only way to do this is to excel as a thief.


The Palace can be accessed by the cell phones provided to the characters by Igor. These devises are known as “Isekai Navi”.


This dungeon will host evil persons with warped hearts. Additionally, the setting will be different at times, including, museums, castles, pyramids. The protagonist and company are searching for an item called “treasure”.


However, during the day, the characters will hang up their masks and attend school and other activities. This includes, studying, hanging out, playing games, and going to work.


The story will play out in episode format, meaning that each part of the game is independent and soon the stories will tie together and connect.


Persona 5 is coming to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 on September 15 in Japan and February 14 in NA.

Thanks, Famitsu.
