Atlus Co., has announced that Persona 5 has shipped more than 1.5 million copies worldwide. To celebrate the launch and the success of the game, the company will be hosting a Persona live concert on Aug. 2 at the Yokohama Arena in Yokohama, Japan.
Persona 5 is a game about a group of troubled teenagers who act as high school students during the day, and fights as a Phantom thieves at night. The mission? To see how you can help change the world.
Here is the synopsis of Persona 5, according to Atlas Co. “Persona 5 is a game about the internal and external conflicts of a group of troubled youth who live dual lives. They have the typically ordinary day-to-day of a Tokyo high-schooler – attending class, after school activities and part-time jobs. But they also undertake fantastical adventures by using otherworldly powers to enter the hearts of people. Their power comes from the Persona, the Jungian concept of the “self;” the game’s heroes realize that society forces people to wear masks to protect their inner vulnerabilities, and by literally ripping off their protective mask and confronting their inner selves do the heroes awaken their inner power, and use it to strive to help those in need. Ultimately, the group of Phantom Thieves seeks to change their day-to-day world to match their perception and see through the masks modern-day society wears.”
