Persona 5 will continue with the series’ high school setting, but according to the latest issue of Dengeki PlayStation, the atmosphere will be different from previous settings. According to information from the magazine posted on Re: Gigen, the chains seen in the teaser signify the characters being bond by modern society and and the players must break free from said chains. The chairs signify the classroom. That’s really all that’s known at present as Atlus is still being tight lipped on the storyline for the moment; however, the game will ” offer a sense of realism, including life-sized characters and a story built from a new world and values.” The PS3-exclusive was announced Sunday after much teasing and is confirmed for northern winter release in Japan. Thanks, Gematsu.
