Persona 5 is finally available in North America and Europe! Of course, Atlus USA celebrates the game’s release in the west with a launch trailer, showing the thrilling adventure as Phantom Thieves.
Here’s an overview of Persona 5 provided by Atlus, in case you are not familiar with the game.
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.
On the other note, Atlus will also be releasing the artbook in the west in June. Previously exclusive to the ‘Take Your Heart’ premium edition, The Art of Persona 5 has appeared in a new listing on Amazon for $39.99, releasing on June 27.
The inside of the artbook will be filled with sketches, and artworks of the protagonists of the game, and a huge number of Personas, illustrations, concept art, and many more by the game’s character creator, Shigenori Soejima.
