Trailers Trailers From Last Week 2-8-2015 – PERSONA 5

Written by Twisted Ideas

Finally, some more information for Persona 5 has finally been released. The new gameplay trailer shows off the new characters, the graphical and art style and the new gameplay features. The game seems to be borrowing characters and/or areas from Catherine too. The dungeon crawling aspects have been expanded, adding platforming mechanics and some special abilities. The day to day life gameplay is still present and social links are to be expected. Here’s hoping that Persona 5 comes sooner rather than later.

White Night is a new IP horror game that uses a film noir visual atheistic. Not much is shown of the gameplay but it’s nice to see a horror game that isn’t realistic or gritty looking.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 shows off gameplay of what seems to be apart of the story mode with Hashirama vs. Marada in the past. The battle shows off how flash the game is on the next gen consoles and it looks awesome.
