“Mementos” represent a vast alternate world with challenging dungeons which complement the main story. Additionally, fusion represents strengthening the power of the heart: “persona.” It is a recurring system to the Persona series, and it has a unique style in Persona 5.

There will also be a report from a Famitsu editor following their time with the game, and developer comments on the non-daily aspects of the game, such as combat.

The September 1, 2016 issue of Famitsu—or issue #1446—will be releasing in Japan on August 18, 2016.

Persona 5 is slated to be released for the PS3 and PS4 in Japan on September 15, 2016, and in China on the same date for the PS4. It will release in North America and Europe on February 14, 2017.
