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.

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.
