Persona 5 Gains Four New Trailers Entitled “Confidants”
(Last Updated On: January 26, 2017)

Persona 5 has four new trailers covering characters such as Shinya Oda, Chihaya Mifune, Yuuki Mishima, and Ichiko Ohya. The new videos also come with brief bios detailing the characters, which is considered spoiler content if you’ve been holding out on P5 information. Atlus is set to release the game that’s already out in Japan in the West on April 4th for PS3 and PS4.

First up on the list is the pint-sized MLG pro Shinya Oda. The kid can be found in Akihabara arcade — firing away at the games. Spending time with him can help the Phantom Thieves learn some useful gun skills that can be used in battle, such as the ability to enter a gun-based All-out Attack after a successful ambush with Bullet Hail, scare enemies during negotiation with Warning Shot, and much more. His video (along with the rest) comes in thanks to AtlusUSA.

In the realm of Persona 5 it’s always smart to have a fortune-teller from time to time, and luckily the Phantom Thieves know a very good one named Chihaya Mifune. Using cards to predict the protagonist’s fortune, she’ll be able to perform special readings that can add useful buffs like increasing the growth rate of a social stat or deepening a bond with a specific confidant. Her introduction video sits below.

Yuuki Mishima is a social media savant who uncovers the alter ego of the Phantom Thieves Aficionado website — known as the Phan-Site. Besides building up the phan-base, he’ll also be able to support the thieves with buffs that increase EXP earned from battles, allow backup members to earn EXP, and do much more.

When she’s not busy chasing a lead, journalist Ichiko Ohya can be found enjoying a drink at the Crossroads Bar in Shinjuku. Providing special deals, the protagonist supplies her with interesting bite-sized info about the Thieves, and she’ll write articles about them. This makes it harder for the security level to fill during Palace heists.

Persona 5 already released in Japan, however folks in the West will get the game on PS3 and PS4 starting on April 4th.

    Uggh. A few lines of Chihaya’s voice actress makes me want to kill myself. Really cannot stand Western female voice actresses. They sound so air-headed, exaggerated and overdramatic. I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone talk like them in reality.

    Chihaya’s original Japanese voice actress, Miyu Matsuki, passed away in October of 2015. Chihaya was one of her final roles. Always liked her voice. Rest in peace. As a side note, from what I saw, Chihaya’s confidant seems to often be highly recommended on Japanese Persona 5 sites. It’s very useful.

    I’m usually not someone who fusses over fonts, but that’s a really weird choice of font for the English version. Enough to make me cringe. It looks more suited to an old computer game/chat application. The original Japanese font
    is more comical, to go with the speech bubble theme, similar in appearance to the font Penny Arcade uses, which is called BlamBot.

      Agreed. English VAs are pretty bad and don’t compare to JP VAs. As for the text (or fonts), I’m not sure why the English version uses such bland text, it really takes from the fun and unique aesthetic that P5 brings.
