Following the Persona 5 English character trailer for Ann Takamaki, Atlus USA has released a new trailer and voice actor interview for Ryuji Sakamoto.
Ryuji Sakamoto Trailer
Shujin Academy is home to many high school delinquents, but the most notorious misfit would have to be Persona 5’s Ryuji Sakamoto. Ryuji was a promising track star who tragically suffered a career ending injury due to “overtraining” by the sadistic coach Kamoshida. With no future in the sport he loves and experiencing first-hand the evil of “shitty adults,” Ryuji becomes a social pariah who rebels against a society he perceives as corrupt.
Even though he’s the definition of a troublemaker, he has a kind heart and always puts the Phantom Thieves before himself. In short, Ryuji is a true friend that can always be counted on to have your back in a jam. Plus, having a tough guy with a skull mask in your crew is just awesome.
Interview with Max Mittelman
Persona 5 was released for the PS3 and PS4 in Japan on September 15, 2016. It will release in North America and Europe on February 14, 2017, and in traditional Chinese and Korean in 2017.
