Fans of the upcoming RPG game titled "Persona 5" have been on the lookout for the official release date of the game. Now, new rumors suggest that it will likely come out this summer.
The rumored summer release of "Persona 5" has been circulating online after the Japanese video game retailer Animate shared a photo (below) on their Twitter handle the poster ad in their store.
The poster is a positive indication that the game developer Atlus has hit the ground running for the promotional campaigns of the game. Even though the timeline for the game's release is clearer, the ad could only confirm the release window and not the specific release date of the title.
According to Gematsu, in an interview with Dengeki PlayStation magazine, Atlas CEO Naoto Hiraoka said: "In 2015, we were able to develop existing IP like 'Persona 4: Dancing All Night' and 'Etrian Mystery Dungeon.' In 2016, starting with 'Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir,' we plan to release a large number of titles. In the summer, we'll launch the long-awaited 'Persona 5.' Of course, in addition to that we have several unannounced titles."
Meanwhile, new "Persona 5" game modes include the Cooperation mode and the Sneak mode.
The Cooperation mode allows gamers to take advantage of developing social links and non-playable characters relationships as a way of gaining the upper hand. The Sneak Mode, on the other hand, allows players to evade new elements in the dungeons.
Gamers can still use the All-Out-Attack mode which is capable of combining attacks when the opponent is KO-ed.
"Persona 5" is also expected to have four main characters—the Phantom, Ryuji Sakamoto, Anne Takamaki, and Morgana.
The Phantom, who is garbed with a bird mask, is equipped with knives and pistols. Ryuji Sakamoto's look include sporting a skull mask and uses shotguns and bludgeoning weapons. Anne Takamaki is a blond girl who wears a cat mask and prefers to use whips and machine guns. Lastly, Morgana is a cat capable of an attack using swords and slingshots.
