Today, Atlus and Deep Silver released two new videos to highlight one of the Persona 5’s characters, Ryuji. The one video introduces Ryuji as a character, while the other is an interview with Ryuji’s voice actor Max Mittelman.
Atlus also provided the following character rundown for Ryuji:
Shujin Academy is home to many high school delinquents, but the most notorious misfit would have to be Persona 5’s Ryuji Sakamoto. Ryuji was a promising track star who tragically suffered a career ending injury due to “overtraining” by the sadistic coach Kamoshida. With no future in the sport he loves and experiencing first-hand the evil of “shitty adults,” Ryuji becomes a social pariah who rebels against a society he perceives as corrupt.
Even though he’s the definition of a troublemaker, he has a kind heart and always puts the Phantom Thieves before himself. In short, Ryuji is a true friend that can always be counted on to have your back in a jam. Plus, having a tough guy with a skull mask in your crew is just awesome.
Persona 5 is currently available for PS4 and PS3 in Japan, and is set to launch in North America and Europe on February 14th.
