Persona 5 Trailer – “The Velvet Room”

Posted on Feb 21 2017 - 5:21pm by Jordan Cundiff

Persona 5 has a new trailer showcasing the return of a very special room.

The Velvet Room, the room that allows the player to manage their Persona’s returns. Igor, the man in the chair, also returns with two new assistants Caroline and Justine who will assist the player in fully master your Persona’s true power.

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 April 4. 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. The game is rated M by the ESRB.
