The Persona developers have launched plenty of spin-off titles for their popular franchise. Now they are preparing to release Persona 5, the next direct sequel game in the Persona series. This game has been highly anticipated by fans since Persona 4 was released on the PlayStation 2 back in 2008. To help get the Persona 5 hype going, the team released a gameplay trailer featuring new and old characters, updated graphics, catchy music and an ending clip to make you wonder what is going to happen in this next installment.
Persona 5 follows a group of juveniles as they attempt to make their way through everyday life. This life is, however, rife with restrictions and chains that the characters must overcome with the help of you, the player. Developers hope that this game will prove to be an emotional journey for players as they go through high school days with characters they grow to love even more. Just how far players and characters will have to go to achieve the freedom they desire is yet to be seen.
The main character in the game, who you get to name, discovers that he has the ability to summon a persona, which is a powerful creature that reflects the soul of its summoner. This is a common element in the Persona franchise, and it will be exciting to see what all of the new personas look like.
Persona 5 is currently set to come out on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, hopefully sometime this year. Keep an eye on us for more news about Persona 5.
