Persona 5 Gets New “Sizzle” Trailer

on March 6, 2017 10:46 AM

Today, developer Atlus released a new “sizzle” trailer for Persona 5.

The new trailer is one minute and 42 seconds long, and essentially provides a good overview of what the game is all about.

Never heard of Persona 5 (shame on you)? No problem — here’s an overview of the game via Atlus:

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 is currently available in Japan for PS4 and PS3, with a North America and Europe launch poised for next month, April 4th, for the same platforms. Below, you can check out the new trailer:
