When the world is threatened by demons and monsters, even your cat has to join fight.
Atlus has released a new trailer for its anticipated role-playing game Persona 5, which comes out in the U.S. on February 14 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. This video shows off the most distinct character in the cast, the talking cat Morgana. The Persona series has become one of the most critically acclaimed and fan-loved Japanese RPG franchises, thanks to its combination of turn-based, dungeon-exploring combat and day-to-day social systems. The series has sold over 6 million copies worldwide, according to Sega (which owns Atlus).
Morgana looks to serve a similar role as Teddy from Persona 4, a bear-like creature that was as much a mascot as he was a character. Just like Teddy, Morgana can be a party member, meaning the player can control her during battles.
Persona 5 is already out in Japan, quickly becoming Atlus’s fastest-selling game ever in its home country by moving 337,767 copies in its first week.
