Persona 5 trailer highlights the Velvet Room’s Caroline and Justine

The Velvet Room’s Twin Wardens, Caroline and Justine, are spotlighted in a new trailer for Persona 5. Unlike previous entries, the player isn’t welcome in the strange room but instead will find themselves to be a prisoner. Reforming has its rewards, though, as completing prison work will gain them access to advanced features. Initially, they are limited to registering their personas and basic fusion, but after putting in some time, they will be able to try their hand at advanced and network fusion as well as options for strengthening and training. Atlus has also collected the downloadable content that they’ve announced through social media onto a new area on the official site, here, which currently features several costume and music packs (Devil Summoner!).

Igor and the Velvet Room return in new Persona 5 trailer, screenshots

Igor is returning with two helpers, Caroline and Justine, in a revamped Velvet Room. Persona 5’s protagonist finds himself back into the strange area whenever he falls to sleep. That means that players will be able to upgrade, create items from, or fuse their collected personas. The latter is comprised of a basic ability that creates a new persona by fusing two together and a more advanced technique that requires three or more. Personas can also be created through network fusion, which will combine the player’s with a random one grabbed from another online player. Unfortunately, fusing requires punishing the personas through hanging, imprisoning, and electrifying them. It’s not for nothing, though, as the punishments enhance them in different ways. Check the trailer out below.
