The Persona 5 story trailer has now been revealed. The new trailer showcases the games main character after having his life ruined, start anew as the newest transfer high-school student at Tokyo’s Shujin Academy. However, he’ll soon discover that he has the ability to enter the hearts of people and force them to confront their true selves (for better or worse). With his newly discovered powers, the protagonist and his raucous group of outcast friends form the Phantom Thieves of Hearts to help unmask the ills of society.
Pre-orders for the game also start today on PlayStation Network. All digital pre-orders will receive bonus digital content, including the “Protagonist Special Theme & Avatar Set,” which includes a dynamic theme AND 3 protagonist avatars. It also includes an in-game DLC item – the “Izanagi & Izanagi Picaro Set,” which gives players the ability to summon Izanagi from Persona 4 into the picaresque world of Persona 5! It includes 2 Izanagi designs – the original & a special Picaro variant that reflects Persona 5’s aesthetic.
Oh and that Ryuji Theme & Avatar set that ATLUS launched the other week, which was initially intended for a Nov. 24 release, but due to some last-minute issues, the theme didn’t go live – the problem has been rectified and it’s now fully confirmed the theme will be live and free for 24 hours from the beginning today at 10am GMT / 11am CET in Europe. So, if you’re a fan of the series or the game art design you may want to grab it for free before it’s too late.
