New Persona 5 Trailer and Interview Showcases Futaba Sakura

Atlus has shared a new trailer for Persona 5.

Featured above, the new trailer showcases one of the game’s playable characters: Futaba Sakura.

The company also shared a video interview with her voice actress, Erica Lindbeck.

Here’s a brief synopsis on Futaba, via Atlus:

A genius 15 year-old girl with otherworldly calculation and programming skills. Her interpersonal communication is extremely poor through, so she lives life as a shut-in with limited to no human interaction. However, she holds a strong interest in the Phantom Thieves and uses an unexpected method to contact them.

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

  • dogmentation

    Futaba top tier waifu, but who cares about the English dub voice actress? Especially since they confirmed free Japanese Language DLC?

  • Minuteworld92

    best girl.

    o-o-oh oh… that english voice actor does NOT fit her jesus christ…

  • bdp

    could be worse i guess

  • Tristan (Chili1)

    I’m interested in the English voice cast of this game, so I care at least.

  • Warrior90

    Good thing dual audio was confirmed.
    These voice actors are cancer.

  • Fear Me I Am Free

    SOOOOOO glad we are getting Japanese audio. It sucks though because I liked the dubs for 3 and 4. What the hell happened?

  • Smug

    once again the furry proves his shit taste (in everything)

  • Warrior90

    All the good voice actors started to gain more work in bigger games,
    which in turn made them more expensive to hire.
    And since Atlus USA are cheap, well…

  • Uncle Ocelot

    Atlus USA thought it was a good idea to hire someone who looks like a dude to play the loli.

  • Anonymoose

    I am a firm believer that you should always play something in its native audio and use subtitles. I did the same for Stalker and Metro.

  • Jumanji Joe

    The real question is will you be able to waifu her, I must know.

    For science of course.

  • Yes you can. and her reaction to this is quite funny.

  • tccboss

    Ok that made me kek

  • Guin

    She’s not a loli just letting you know.

  • Guin

    The English VA looks like a cheap Vegas whore.

  • True Goddess Reincarnation


    man you guys like trash

  • True Goddess Reincarnation

    holy fucknuggets Aoba that is just mean

  • Still Here

    It seems strange that you would insult someone for wanting to enjoy a game the way they want to. Especially now that the jap VOs are going to be in the game.

  • Snorlaxation

    I like her voice from what we’ve heard, but my god does she sound older than she should for the character. Futaba is the youngest of the group, no??? What the hell!

  • Alister

    Her English dub voice sounds great. Can’t wait for the game to be released.

  • Alister

    I really love it when people can play games and watch what they want the way they wanted. And not have to be restricted through or because of you know what(s).
