New Persona 5 Screenshots Depict Character Personas, New Areas, and More

persona 5 09-23-15-25

We’ve gotten a hold of some new screenshots from this week’s Famitsu (via DualShockers), which show off more of the game’s first five characters, their personas, in-game regions, and more.

First, it’s the characters Ryuji (and his Persona Captain Kidd), Morgana (and her Persona Zoro), Anne (and her Persona Carmen), and finally newcomer Yusuke Kitigawa (and his Persona Goemon).

Next up, we have some environment shots, some of which seem to depict a mansion (or dungeon, technically), which you can find below:

The next two screenshots put a closer look at Morgana’s regular cat form, as well as the game’s smartphone apps:

Finally, you can get some more screenshots below, which reveal some more of the characters’ Personas in action:

Persona 5 is launching in Japan sometime next summer in Japan on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, with a 2016 release set for North America.

    I hope we get 3D demons in SMT V since they spent the time to remake the models.

    I hope we actually get an SMT V, and not just a wave of Persona 5 Crimson, Persona 5 Arena and Persona 5 Dancing All Night.

    I really like the pirate persona. It does remind me of Eustass Kid from One Piece, since they are named after a well known pirate. I do wonder if we’ll get a scarlet pimpernel, Jean Valjean, Count of Monte Cristo and Three Musketeers persona.

    Carmen. eh? As in Carmen Sandiego? It would fit the thief/outlaw theme they’ve got going on.

    tbh i hope we get a persona 5 arena game, the p4a game was a fantastic fighting game and i’d love to see a sequel with the potential for even more characters and more story elements.
    also just to point something out i believe persona is still under the branch of SMT and not to mention that SMT would be considered the main game with the persona games being sub games under the SMT umbrella so theoretically i imagine atlus has a team dedicated to making SMT games and another for it’s spinoffs, or not i could be wrong but you know games do take a decent chunk of time and MONEY to do and frankly persona makes them money and they at least make good games out of it.

    though i will concede dancing all night really didn’t need to happen XD.
    also persona 3, persona 3 FES, P3P.
    Persona 2 got 2 games and persona 1 got 1 and a remake or port.
    honestly if it weren’t for dancing all night you could say they were making the amount of games that the number entailed but who knows they could have meant to only make one arena game and figured they would make another to make it better because it is a god damn great fighting game.

    Eat my ass, Blackbeard is awesome and was a man’s man. Besides that’s not even Blackbeard.His persona is Captain Kidd, named after William Kidd from the 17th century. Famous among people who read about pirates.

    Yeah, I noticed just after posting that. I had a feeling that they wouldn’t put some character from a game alongside guys like Zorro and Goemon.

    Which I know. I was pointing out the fact no one uses Blackbeard anymore, hell, even Mobey Dick gets more action than him these days. Bet he’s drinking away his irrelevancy in Davey Jones Locker with all the other forgotten heroes and villains of the sea.

    Carmen is from a story about a chick who helps out a ‘robber’ who ends up being a murderer who killed someone over a card game, and then they both get caught and executed…
    sounds fantastic

    I’m really digging the dungeons and locales the game has so far.

    They probably will down the road. Just hoping that road isn’t 10 years long.

    Goddamn, I love it so much. Just give it to me already.

    Anne has as a nice bu–I mean, Persona.

    Also I love the idea of ‘normal’ dungeons. Like the picture of them running on the rooftops in the city.
