This April Fool’s Day Persona 5 Trailer is Mighty Impressive

on April 1, 2014 5:40 PM

A group of daring and incredibly talented people decided to prank the massively faithful fans awaiting any news on the upcoming JRPG Persona 5. How? By creating a grimdark trailer showcasing what the game could look like if it fused with the likes of anime Elfen Lied and notoriously difficult Dark Souls II.

The results are quite great honestly. So much so that legions of fans on the internet were fooled immediately for quite some time before the hoax was revealed.

You can check out the very fake April Fool’s trailer below and read about all the talent and work that went into said trailer here.
