This week’s update of the official Persona 5 website includes a character page for the high school detective Goro Akechi. Additionally, an update to the “School Life” page consists of screenshots involving daily activities and dungeon gameplay information.
Goro Akechi (VA: Sōichirō Hoshi)
Although he may be a high school student, Goro is a boy with the title of detective. His ability is said to be spectacular. Goro has lead to the solution of many cases and it is likely that he has solved more cases than the law enforcement individuals. His appearance has also gathered quite a lot of attention, with him sometimes being referred to as the ‘Return of Detective Prince’ by the people. Now, it seems that Goro has developed an interest in the ‘Phantom Thief’ case that is troubling the world.
After school, the player can visit the theater to watch a movie, socialize with friends or visit a public bath house. You can also participate in part-time jobs to earn money.
As detailed previously, players will be able to select one of four difficulty levels to begin with at the start of the game. The progression of the story will not change based on the player’s choice, and players who want to simply enjoy the story are recommended the “Safety” and “Easy” settings.
Some locations in Palace dungeons are known as “safe rooms.” In these, it is possible to take a break and save, while also moving to other safe rooms within that dungeon. It can therefore be used as a quick shortcut to move around the Palace.
Last week’s Persona 5 website update consisted of codenames for the Phantom Thief characters, as well as dungeon exploration and combat information.
Persona 5 is slated to be 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 in 2017.
