New Details Emerge on Story & Characters

New Details Emerge on Story & Characters -

GameInformer has a new interview with Persona 5 director Katsura Hashino that reveals some brand new information about the game's characters and stories. In it, Hashino speaks about the main cast, the issues the game will tackle, how the characters will evolve throughout, their connections to their alter-egos, whether any sort of romance may bloom and a special message to American fans waiting for the game.

Persona is known for confronting difficult topics. What different issues did you want to tackle with this cast?

Each of the characters, including the protagonist, has the mindset that – for one reason or another – they no longer have a place where they belong in society. So when they get a hold of the Isekai-Navi [note: Japanese version term] which allows them to enter another world and steal the malicious intent from others' hearts, they find new kinship and a sense of belonging in becoming these "phantom thieves," and throw themselves headlong into helping others and reforming society with their own hands. The ones that stand in their way are the adults – in other words, the traditional authority figures who dictate every aspect of these teenagers' lives. And in Persona 5, the story takes a different spin: Rather than getting drawn into a strange case, the team throws themselves into the fray. Through their actions, they draw the attention of an even greater enemy... That's how the game sets in motion.
