Wear the mask.
If you’ve played Persona 5 already, you probably won’t need to be told who the Phantom Thieves are, given how much time you spend with each of them over the massive RPG. But with Persona 5 Royal due out in the West in two months, Atlus have released a video reintroducing the group, for newcomers and returning fans alike.
The video shows each of the Phantom Thieves in their Metaverse form, showcasing some new special attacks for each of them, all of which look typically flashy and stylish. Newcomer Kasumi also gets shown off, while a new update over on the PlayStation Blog also gives brief details on who she is. Voiced by Laura Post, Kasumi is award-winning gymnast who enrolls at Shujin Academy at the same time as the protagonist. Her Phantom Thieves outfit – with dominant hues of black and red – and her mask have been designed specifically to echo Joker’s own look.
Persona 5 Royal is out for the PS4 on March 31. You’re gonna want to strap in, because it’s going to be a long journey.
