Persona 5 Game's New 'Short Movie' Features Protagonist Visiting Maid Cafe
posted on by Jordain Haley-Banez
Atlus' official YouTube channel streamed a new "short movie" video on Saturday for the upcoming Persona 5 game, featuring the protagonist visiting a maid cafe.
The video begins with a maid named Kurara welcoming the protagonist to the cafe, and asking him what he would like to order. This brings up a menu of items, such as hot coffee, tea, pancakes, and omelette rice. The protagonist orders a coffee, but the maid brings him the wrong order. The protagonist is then given the option to accept the tea, or order the maid to re-make it.
If the protagonist accepts the tea, Morgana comments that his heart has widened, and he is given the option to invest a point in one of five stats. After finishing the tea, Morgana remarks that the protagonist seems to have learned how to become more likable, and he receives another point to invest.
Previous "short movie" videos have shown the protagonist bonding with Ryuji while watching sports, playing video games and making infiltration tools on his own, bonding with Futaba at a movie theater, and learning how to work at a coffee shop.
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.
