The second entrance in Persona 5‘s array of “Game Mechanics” trailers introduces a Velvet Room.
Here’s a brief overview of a Velvet Room, around Atlus:
Sometimes when a protagonist of Persona 5 goes to sleep, he doesn’t dream like a normal Japanese high-schooler. Oh no. He gets ecstatic to a place that exists between dream and reality, mind and matter. A place where predestine has done it demeanour like a prison. A place where scapegoat creates power, and where a informed face will support a personality of a Phantom Thieves in reaching his full potential. Get prepared to contend hello to Igor once again, since a Velvet Room is back!
For those of we who aren’t informed with a Velvet Room, it’s a special area where personas can be… played around with. Basically, a room is where personas collected in a Metaverse can be upgraded, incited into items, or bear fusion. Let’s start with a many dark one, shall we? Fusion allows personas to be fused together to emanate a new, hopefully stronger, one. There are 3 ways to compound personas, simple alloy lets any dual be fused together, while modernized alloy is preset and need 3 or more. Oh, there is one small thing we should mention. Your personas will need to be executed around guillotine to bear a aforementioned fusions, so always remember their eminent scapegoat when Velvet Room wardens, Caroline and Justine, lets a blade dump (be heedful of accidents though). The third process of alloy is network fusion, that allows a actor with online duty to compound their persona with a pointless online player’s persona!
Besides creation heads roll, a Velvet Room offers other fun ways to execute, we mean, conduct personas. For example, we can strengthen a persona by sacrificing (hanging) another one to it, put personas in lockdown so they can learn to take reduction repairs from their weakness, and “transform” them around electric chair into a useful item/piece of equipment. You can also register and serve them from a collection as well! Although a Velvet Room might demeanour like a prison, it’s an critical place to deposit time and persona lives in. Oh, we can also entrance a area during a day/night or during Palace runs by a jail doorway looking portal.
Persona 5 is now accessible for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in Japan, and will launch in North America and Europe on Apr 4.
