PS4/PS3 Exclusive Persona 5 Gets New Trailer: Shows Fishing in Ichigaya, a Glimpse on Realistic Tokyo

Today Atlus revealed another brief trailer of its upcoming JRPG Persona 5, featuring one of the activities available in the game. The hero will be able to go fish in Ichigaya, Tokyo.

The location seen in the trailer, which you can enjoy below, is actually a popular real life spot, known as the Ichigaya Fish Center, as you can can see in the second video (courtesy of YouTube user Andi Wiyoko).

The place appears to be reproduced quite faithfully, including the yellow crates that people use as stools, to fish in a series of pools built in the remains of the moat of Edo castle. The only thing that might be not as realistic is the price. Normally you’d pay 690 yen per hour plus 100 for the rental of the rod.
