Persona 5 Game's New Videos Highlight Mini-game, Tool Making
posted on by Jordain Haley-Banez
The first video features the protagonist playing "Star Forneus," a retro-styled mini-game that focuses on button pushing speed. Successfully clearing a stage will result in players earning a point that can be invested in one of five stats.
The second video shows the protagonist sitting at a workbench. Sitting down will open up the crafting menu, giving players a view of what items they can craft, and what materials they need. Once players have selected an item, Morgana will ask if they're ready to proceed. Upon saying "yes," a short animation of the protagonist fiddling at the workbench will play, ending with a pop-up message announcing that the item has been successfully created. Players can continue making items from there, or choose to stop. Repeatedly crating items will earn players a point that they can invest in one of five stats.
The latest entry in the Persona role-playing game series will ship for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 on September 15 in Japan, and on February 14, 2017 in the Americas. The game's Western release will have English audio only.
Atlus will offer the American release in a "Take Your Heart" Premium Edition that includes a soundtrack CD, a Morgana plush, a hardcover art book, a steelbook, and a school bag. The game will also be available in a SteelBook Edition.
