Persona 5 may be delayed, but that just leaves more time to draw out the media hype. This time, Atlus has released trailers focused on several characters. One is the party member Futaba Sakuraba, while the others depict some of the confidants with whom the main character can build relationships.
According to Atlus, Futaba is:
A genius 15 year-old girl with otherworldly calculation and programming skills. Her interpersonal communication is extremely poor through, so she lives life as a shut-in with limited to no human interaction. However, she holds a strong interest in the Phantom Thieves and uses an unexpected method to contact them.
The next three characters are not Phantom Thieves themselves, but will offer their support to the hero and his party; support that will grow as the hero deepens his relationships.
This frightening looking individual is the proprietor of Tokyo’s finest airsoft gun shop called Untouchable. Since the Phantom Thieves need to arm themselves against all types of enemies, you can see why keeping a man like Munehisa close is important. Helping him out will unlock a wider selection of wares, discounts, and even an option to customize certain airsoft guns! If you're a gun nut, you definitely want to stay in this guy's good graces.
If you're feeling under the weather, you may want to stop by Tae Takemi's medical clinic. Even though it’s located in a shady alley, her clinic is THE place to treat any injuries sustained during Phantom Thieving. Helping Tae with her "experiments" unlocks stronger health potions and consumables that can help turn the tide during fights. Yes, she may have a dubious reputation, but who else are you going to rely on for medicinal needs?
After the protagonist is given a second chance in Tokyo, he’s reluctantly taken in by Cafe Leblanc owner Sojiro Sakura and temporarily calls the attic of the cafe his home. If the protagonist chooses to help run the cafe throughout the game, Sojiro will teach him various coffee and curry recipes. How does that help the Phantom Thieves, you ask? Well, crafted coffee and curry can be consumed during dungeon crawls to restore SP. That's pretty important, so be sure to stay on Sojiro's sweet side in order to get those recipes! Oh, and he’ll also drop some fun facts about coffee here and there if you’re into that sort of thing.
Persona 5 is out in Japan on PS4 and PS3 and comes to the west on PS4 on April 4th.
