Atlus has expelled a new trailer for Persona 5 introducing a diversion mechanics of a RPG’s “Palace” dungeons.
Here’s a brief overview of Palaces, around Atlus:
While a Phantom Thieves keep adult their guise as normal Japanese high-schoolers during a day, they transport to another universe (via intelligent phone) to unleash their loyal Personas and lift some ruin during night. This universe is famous as a Metaverse, and it’s radically a “collective unconscious” of all mankind. In a Metaverse, a many disfigured desires of people perceptible themselves as Palaces, and it’s adult to a Phantom Thieves to penetrate and better a evils within a Palace.
In sequence to enter a Palace, a group picks a target, total out certain pivotal pieces of information, and plugs it into their Metaverse Navigator app to benefit access. Once a thieves are in a Palace, they contingency quarrel hordes of Shadows, solve puzzles, better a Palace ruler, and take a target’s deepest darkest enterprise (which takes a form of Treasure, naturally). When a Treasure is stolen, a target’s heart will be altered and they’ll finally know a evilness of their core desire. Every aim in a diversion will have a Palace with a opposite demeanour and theme, so be prepared to see some truly disfigured stuff! Unfortunately for a Phantom Thieves, infiltrating a Palace is anything though easy. The group will need to use secrecy and devise their moves wisely to safeguard a successful heist. Sneaking by and/or ambushing Shadows is essential to reaching a Palace Treasure, so be certain to always make a initial move. If a Thieves get held too many times, they’ll be kicked out of a Metaverse and can usually lapse a subsequent day (always keep an eye on a confidence meter)!
So what do we do once you’ve challenged a Shadow to a fight? The easy answer is to send them to Shadow ruin with a accumulation of attacks, though infrequently a some-more “diplomatic” resolution would be some-more profitable in a prolonged run. You can Hold Up Shadows to negotiate with them to produce money, items, and even a possibility to equivocate a conflict entirely. Oh, and this time around a protagonist can even remonstrate them to join a Phantom Thieves to be employed as a Persona! Of march if you’re some-more of a fire initial ask questions after form of person, feel giveaway to destroy all a Shadows. We’ve even enclosed a Baton Pass underline that lets an aggressive celebration member switch turns with another impression to maximize aggressive weaknesses!
Persona 5 is now accessible for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in Japan, and will launch in North America and Europe on Apr 4.
