Trailers reveal new way to earn stat-increase points

Atlus' official Youtube channel streamed two new videos on Saturday for its upcoming Persona 5 PlayStation 4 game, highlighting an in-game mini-game and the tool making process.

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.

The game features animation sequences from the Production I.G studio.

The Persona 5 the Animation -The Day Breakers- television anime special will air on September 3. The special will recount the prologue story of the young thief organization at the center of the game.

Hisato Murasaki will launch the Persona 5 manga on Shogakukan's Manga One app on September 15, and then on the Ura Sunday website on September 22.
