Atlus have recently updated their Persona 5 site to include a bunch of new information on the game.
Here is the new information that the site has been updated with:
Name: Akechi Goro
Despite only being a high school student, Akechi Goro carries the title of detective. His detective abilities are said to be spectacular, with him already solving many cases, with some believing he’s solved more than those in law enforcement. His appearance has garnered him a lot of attention, with many people calling him “The Second Coming of The Detective Prince”. He appears to have gained an interest in the “Phantom Thief” case.
- Daily Activities
The protagonist can participate in many activities after school activities, including but not limited to watching a movie at the theater, hang out with friends or visiting the public bath house. The protagonist can also do part-time jobs to earn some extra cash.
Players will be able to select one of four difficulties at the beginning of the game. Difficulty will not affect the game’s story, so for those just wanting to experience it they can choose either “Safety” or “Easy”
Some rooms in Palace dungeons are referred to as “safe rooms”, in which the player can take a break from exploring and save their game. It can also be used to travel from one safe room to another, essentially also doubling as a quick travel.
Persona 5 is slated to release in Japan on September 15th, 2016 and in North America and Europe on February 14th, 2017.
