New Persona 5 Trailers Introduce Confidants Tae, Sojiro, and Munehisa


Atlus has shared a bevy of new trailers for Persona 5.

The new trailers introduce the Confidants, otherwise known as the “business associates” that players will establish and build relationships with in Persona 5. These characters include party members, as well as non-playable characters from around Tokyo.

You’ll be able to unlock meaningful services, special skill buffs, and more via building up these relationships.

You can find the trailers and accompanying descriptions below:

Munehisa Iwai

This frightening looking individual is the proprietor of Tokyo’s finest airsoft gun shop called Untouchable. Since the Phantom Thieves need to arm themselves against all types of enemies, you can see why keeping a man like Munehisa close is important. Helping him out will unlock a wider selection of wares, discounts, and even an option to customize certain airsoft guns! If you’re a gun nut, you definitely want to stay in this guy’s good graces.

Tae Takemi

If you’re feeling under the weather, you may want to stop by Tae Takemi’s medical clinic. Even though it’s located in a shady alley, her clinic is THE place to treat any injuries sustained during Phantom Thieving. Helping Tae with her “experiments” unlocks stronger health potions and consumables that can help turn the tide during fights. Yes, she may have a dubious reputation, but who else are you going to rely on for medicinal needs?

Sojiro Sakura

After the protagonist is given a second chance in Tokyo, he’s reluctantly taken in by Cafe Leblanc owner Sojiro Sakura and temporarily calls the attic of the café his home. If the protagonist chooses to help run the café throughout the game, Sojiro will teach him various coffee and curry recipes. How does that help the Phantom Thieves, you ask? Well, crafted coffee and curry can be consumed during dungeon crawls to restore SP. That’s pretty important, so be sure to stay on Sojiro’s sweet side in order to get those recipes!  Oh, and he’ll also drop some fun facts about coffee here and there if you’re into that sort of thing.

Persona 5 will launch in North America and Europe on April 4th.

  • Gale

    Munehisa sounds good.
    Tae sounds terrible and ill-fitting for the characters appearance.

    Sojiro is Jamieson Price as Jamieson Price.

  • Jumanji Joe

    Now that we know p5 was delayed for “localization” I’m getting kinda worried.

  • Ax

    but who don’t like amazing memes on their games? i can’t wait for the BAZINGA! jokes. Please don’t fuck this up Atlus….

  • Tristan (Chili1)

    Takemi’s voice is hot

  • Kakaku

    The social link characters have better english voices than than some of the main cast.

  • TheCynicalReaper

    WELP! Guess I’ll be playing this in English on my first playthrough.

    Just hope they don’t ruin it.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    I’m hoping the inclusion of dual audio means they’re going to make it a bit more faithful than usual, but I’m keeping expectations low.

  • Nagato

    They need to make it acceptable for the bigger Western audience they’re expecting?

  • psycho_bandaid

    I would request a chaperone when visiting Tae’s clinic. Something about a doctor knocking you out, not telling you what effect the drug you just took will have, and then asking you not to tell anyone what goes on there would set off too many alarm bells for me.

    Even though she’s smoking hot.

  • Zero Eternity

    Sojiro is favorite voice so far.

  • Jumanji Joe

    I agree 100% fellow gamer! We need all the latest memes (from 10 years ago) and all that pesky skimpy clothing removed so we don’t offend people that dont even buy games! I hope you’re ready for that midnight release bro #powertotheplayers

  • Jack

    According to one of my friends, they added on more time to Un-meme the translation since it’s blockbuster tier and they’d probably have a fuck ton of refunds if the game was shit and memes
    also dual audio was due to people fucking hating all the VA choices they made, due to all the dislikes on youtube and shit

  • Jack

    Yeah, it’s a shame they got half the cast decent and then the MCs, who you’ll be hearing for 70% of the game all wrong

  • Minuteworld92

    what the fuck, they are holy shit…

    atlus has gotten really fucking lazy when it comes to dubs…

  • Uncle Ocelot

    I really hope that’s the case.

  • Jack

    IF the translation is good and no one complains, it should send a message to them that no one likes fucking meme shit in their games
    if it’s bad it’ll probably tell them the same thing, but they’ll just have less money
    i’m hoping for the former, since i want the game to be good

  • Gale

    Given they said in their one stream that it was delayed to improve the English localization and dubbing, I imagine that maybe Atlus JP came by and very passive-aggressively told them not to fuck it up, given the way Western audiences have been acting towards dubs and localizations recently.

    Now, if only they’d FIX THAT DAMN FONT.

  • Guin

    Why wasn’t I surprised that it’s the women where they fuck up on the dubbing?

  • Grey

    Sojiro Sakura looks and sounds like he should be someone Kiryu Kazuma fights mid-game, comes to an understanding with, then shows up again near the end of the game as a friend.

  • tccboss

    This better be worth the delay.

  • Kakaku

    I don’t necessarily hate the main cast, but none of them are really outstanding. Just serviceable. I’ll probably only use English during fights assuming the battle dialogue isn’t subtitled.

  • Snorlaxation

    Takemi’s voice sounds good… if she’d been voicing someone else.
