The “All-Out Attack” system returns in Persona 5, conveying the exhilaration of destroying an entire enemy team.

Additionally, the “1 MORE” mechanic returns to take advantage in battle situations. A “conversation” system with enemy shadows has also been introduced, which can lead to All-Out Attacks, or where money, items or “power” can be requested from the enemy.

Finally, the upcoming magazine issue will feature new art for the main character phantom by character designer Shigenori Soejima.

The June 30, 2016 edition of Famitsu—or issue #1437—will be releasing in Japan on June 16, 2016.

Persona 5 is slated to be released for the PS3 and PS4 in Japan on September 15, 2016, with a February 14, 2017 North American release date.
