Deep Silver have released the first English gameplay trailer for the upcoming Persona 5 from Atlus, that they will be publishing in Europe. This trailer focuses more on the social simulation aspects of the game, that was introduced in Persona 3 and continued in Persona 4. This trailer has been released ahead of Atlus USA premiering the first livestream of Persona 5 gameplay at 12PM PST/3PM EST/8PM GMT respectively.
Here is the video description, via Deep Silver:
Persona 5 is a game about the internal and external conflicts of a group of troubled youth who live dual lives. 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 use it to strive 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-day society wears.
Persona 5 will release on Feb. 14 in the Americas and Europe, for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. Pre-orders are now available at participating retailers for either version of the game.
