Atlus has released the first gameplay trailer for its upcoming role-playing game, Persona 5. The fifth main installment in the Shin Megami Tensei: Persona series of RPGs is set to arrive in the West on PlayStation 3 and Playstation 4 sometime in 2015.
We still don’t know much about the game, though one of the characters is apparently a large cat. The menus also stand out as particularly stylish, with a dynamic, graphic novel aesthetic that looks like Guy Ritchie’s take on manga.
Producer/director Katsura Hashino provided a little more context on the game’s website, translated here by Siliconera:
“For this game, we’re going with a challenge that fuses together a juvenile school setting that is as large as life, together with a picaresque romance. In the previous game, we wrote a story that involved having a justice group chase down a bad guy that could easily be feared by just about anyone. This time, it’s about a group of high school students that are being ‘chased’ by unexpected occurrences due to the justice they believe in. We’re writing [the story] to convey a thrilling everyday life in the shoes of these characters, that are as large as life, in this juvenile school setting.”
