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.
