Development

The creation of Persona 5 began after their first game Catherine came out in 2011.  The first trailer did not leave much answer for the fans that anxiously wanted to know more.  There was however one quote which taunted players; “You Are Slave.  Want Emancipation?”  The only information that was left for players and fans alike was, the release date of Winter 2014 as well as the PS3 title.  February 5 2015 the first game play trailer debuted!  During the Toyko Game Show it was announced that the new Persona 5, would not be released until the mid 2016!

The reason behind the delay is to that the team can deliver a supreme product that would pick up where Persona 4 left off.  The main subject of the game that the characters wish to show is being a rebel and being brave enough to make your own pathway and not follow society’s norms.

Some might argue Persona 5 will be seeing some competition from Fallout 4 however both games have very different tastes and both definitely have their advantages over each.

While the Persona 3 and 4 theme colors were yellow and blue, Persona 5 game‘s  theme colors is red which is meant to bring a rebellious feel to the game.

This is meant to make the game more approachable to new comers and leave an emotional mark on those already playing the Persona series.
