Earlier this month, Atlus warned streamers to not broadcast beyond an early point in the game, seemingly threatening content claims and strikes for anyone who defied their wishes. Today, Atlus is walking some of that back. Advertisement Recognizing that Persona’s popularity can be partially attributed to streamers, Atlus says it has reconsidered how it will approach Persona 5 broadcasts. Previously, Atlus prohibited people from streaming beyond the 7/7 in-game date, something that upset some hardcore fans. While it’s not a perfect solution, Atlus has decided to move that date back a few months: We recognize that our fans are the reason why the game is the major worldwide success it is, and we continue to want them to be able to enjoy the game without fear of being spoiled. However, we also heard your issues with the guidelines and have decided to revise them. Because we want to give players the most access to the game while respecting the original goal, we’re now asking players to refrain from streaming or posting video past the end of the in-game date of 11/19—when the main story gears up for the final act.

[embedded content] Persona 5 isn’t exactly a technical powerhouse but its stylish visuals and presentation is certainly praiseworthy. The game has been in development since 2012 – around the same time Atlus released Catherine – and was initially a PlayStation 3 title. However, Persona 5 didn’t utilize Catherine’s Gamebyro engine and instead, the development team built an entirely new engine to work with. In its analysis, Digital Foundry writes that the game runs at 1080p at 30fps on PS4 and while that may come as a disappointment to some, its performance on the current-gen console is “rock-solid.” Although the PS3 version isn’t that far behind visually, it suffers from “obvious” screen-tearing in “almost every scene.” “Persona 5 suffers from tearing throughout the screen, which can be intrusive,” said Digital Foundry of the PS3 version. As for the PS4 version, we’re told that the resolution boost is the “major improvement” the game offers over its last-gen sibling. You can check out the full analysis in the video above.

Several new Persona-related domain names have been registered recently by Ryu’s Office, a Japanese marketing company, for Atlus. The two companies have worked together since Persona 3. The list of domains registered include: P3D.jp P5AG.jp P5D.jp P5R.jp P5U.jp Persona-Dance.jp PQ2.jp While there isn’t much indication as to what the domains exactly mean or what they’ll be used for, one can guess as to what they might mean. Both P3D and P5D could be part of the Dancing series of Persona games, Persona-Dance could be a central website for all of the Persona Dancing series games, P5U might mean Persona 5 Ultimax, and PQ2 could be the sequel to 2014’s Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth. We might have to wait until the company’s big Persona concert scheduled for August 2 at Yokohama, Japan, to find out more about what the company’s plans are for the Persona franchise this and the next couple of years.

Most of the women available for romance in Persona 5 are your fellow high school students. But not all of them. PERSONA 5 STORY & RELATIONSHIP SPOILERS AHEAD Taking the role of a kid in his second year of high school—which in Japan would put the player at roughly 16-17 years old—Persona 5 surrounds you with single girls who might befriend you, may become attracted to you and also potentially follow you inside people’s hearts on daring heists to save the world. Advertisement This is all normal and expected for a Persona game. Romance isn’t just an option in this series, it is—like Mass Effect—for many fans an endgame in itself, a statement on how you approached your playthrough and the decisions you made. “Oh, you dated her? Well, I kissed her”, etc etc. Persona 5 is different though. It’s a darker, more mature game, both in its tone—it opens with player being beaten and drugged before leading into some sexual assault allegations—and the company it keeps, with less of an emphasis on your fellow kids and more opportunity to forge relationships with adults.

[embedded content] One of the best things about Persona 5 is its amazing music. And Atlus has just announced that the complete 110-track Persona 5 soundtrack is now available on iTunes. The soundtrack, which is composed of three albums, is priced at only $29.99 on iTunes, which is a pretty good deal considering the number of tracks included as well as the sheer quality of the music. Whether the soundtrack will be available on other platforms is still unknown. Atlus has also released two new pieces of free DLC for Persona 5, both of which are now available for download on the PS Store. Both pieces of DLC are car stickers for the game’s Mona-car. The first one is a “Persona 20th Anniversary Logo Morgana Sticker” while the second one is a “Phantom Thieves Logo Morgana Car Sticker.” Additionally, a new Accolades Trailer for Persona 5 has been published on the PlayStation YouTube channel which shows off not only the game but also some of the reviews the game has gotten.

Persona 5 stars a group of Phantom Thieves who go on heists to steal the twisted desires of targets in the land of Tokyo’s collective unconscious, the Metaverse. The main characters also get a costume change in these heists. Persona 5’s protagonist doesn’t talk in the game, but they say everything you need to know through their clothes. Advertisement The protagonist of Persona 5 has Arsene as his initial Persona, which, for the uninitiated, are psychic projections of characters’ unconscious desires which the player uses to fight demons. While most Personas in the series come from mythology, in Persona 5‘s they originate from archetypal tricksters and thieves. Arsene is reference to the gentleman thief character Arsene Lupin, and both the protagonist and their Persona kinda dress like him. Cary Grant as John Robie in To Catch A Thief Arsene Lupin was created by French author Maurice Leblanc, who pitted him against Sherlock Holmes in Arsene’s first appearance in 1905. He’s also the namesake for the cafe where Persona 5‘s protagonist crashes. The Arsene Lupin stories matter less than the character’s influence on the design and attitude of the gentleman READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!
