A new trailer dropped for Persona 5 today, and it is all about your home away from reality – the Velvet Room. The mysterious Igor and his insane grin are featured prominently as he describes the situation to the incarcerated protagonist and introduces his two jailers.
In addition to the place where current persona can be fused to make make other more powerful persona, it looks like we will be able to create skills. This does not come for free, as we are told everything takes sacrifice. In the video, it looks like this involves the protagonist being hanged on a gibbet or executed in an electric chair. The video mentions rehabilitation frequently, so it seems like that will be a theme in the game.
We look forward to the many ways that execution brings rehabilitation when Persona 5 releases April 4th.
Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
