New 'Persona 5' trailer released

New 'Persona 5' trailer released ATLUS

RPG Persona 5 isn't expected out on PlayStation 3 and PS4 for a few more weeks, but that didn't stop publisher Atlus from releasing a new trailer for the game.

Take a look:

Set in the Shin Megami Tensei video game universe, Persona 5 is about the internal and external conflicts of a group of troubled youth who live dual lives.  They have the typically ordinary day-to-day of a Tokyo high-schooler (such as attending class, after school activities, and part-time jobs), but they also undertake fantastical adventures by using otherworldly powers to enter the hearts of people.  Their power comes from the Persona, the Jungian concept of the “self;” the game’s heroes realize that society forces people to wear masks to protect their inner vulnerabilities, and by literally ripping off their protective mask and confronting their inner selves do the heroes awaken their inner power, and use it to strive to help those in need.  Ultimately, the group of Phantom Thieves seeks to change their day-to-day world to match their perception and see through the masks modern-day society wears.

Persona 5 will release on April 4th in the Americas and Europe, for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.  The game is rated "M for Mature" by the ESRB.
