Get a look at Persona 5’s mechanics in new gameplay video


Atlus has released a new video detailing the adventures of the Phantom Thieves. Specifically, the game mechanics involved in pulling off a typical heist. After hanging up their school uniforms, the Phantom Thieves spend their nights destroying the evils within the Metaverse. Using their personas, they explore the collective unconscious of mankind to destroy what lurks in the palaces that are created by people’s warped desires. The crew first picks a target, and after finding out more about the person, uses their Metaverse Navigator to access the palace to solve its puzzles, clear out the shadows, and topple its ruler. And steal the treasure, of course, which also happens to be the person’s deepest desire. But the crew isn’t in it just for the loot, as taking the treasure will also cause the target to rid itself of evil. Shadows can be pummeled, robbed, or persuaded to join the team as a persona.

For more information about the series, check out our reviews of Shin Megami Tensei: Persona for PSP and Persona 4 Golden for PS Vita.

Persona 5 is scheduled to launch on April 4 for PS3 and PS4.
