Persona 5 English Yusuke, Makoto Trailers and Cherami Leigh Interview

Following last week’s Persona 5 English character trailer for Morgana, Atlus USA has released new trailers for Yusuke Kitagawa and Makoto Niijima, as well as the voice actor for Makoto: Cherami Leigh.

Yusuke Trailer

Don’t stop there, we also have two new members of the Phantom Thieves to reveal. First off, we’ve got the elegant Yusuke Kitagawa. He can most aptly be described as an artistic savant, and his love for aesthetics and talent for art is second to none. Unlike the rest of the Phantom Thieves, this Bohemian beatnik attends Kosei High School and joins the motley crew after a very fateful event involving his art mentor/idol Madarame. Although Yusuke can be eccentric, codename Fox harnesses his love of true beauty to help the Phantom Thieves. I mean, it wouldn’t be a group of social misfits without at least one starving artist right?

Makoto Trailer

Next up, we have Shujin Academy’s resident overachiever Makoto Niijima. So how did a straight-laced honor student and the student council president get involved with the mischievous Phantom Thieves? Let’s just say that it’s her duty to figure out the identities and motives of the group (she is student council president after all). Even though codename Queen appears to be the antithesis of a rebelling high schooler, she has a strong sense of morality and will do what she can for a righteous cause. Besides, it’s a probably a VERY good thing for the group to have an intelligent strategist formulate their heists. Just imagine if Ryuji had to plan them…

    Makoto sounds so much like Yukiko :S


    Am I the only one actually happy with these English Voices? Also Makato sounds alot like Lucy, but I like her charm!~

      After watching the livestream, I thought Ryuji’s and Morgana’s english dub was pretty good. Ann I’m a little iffy about, and Makoto more so (I cringed when she said “I can feel it, myself, me! I will not lose heart again.”), though perhaps that line reading will be more tolerable within the scene with that certain song in the background.

    I’m glad we’ll be getting dual audio.
