Persona 5 Producer Hints at Theme for Game
Only as a group can you break entrapment.

Beyond the announcement trailer, not much information has been released about Persona 5. Thankfully, Persona Team producer and director Katsura Hashino has broken this silence by sharing a message with 4Gamer that hints at a possible theme for the upcoming game.

"As we head into next year, which already feels very sudden, we're adopting the words 'be personal for change.' Actually, this is the motto of the development team that I'm a part of. While they say that Atlus is more on the individualistic side, individuality breaks away from common rules and models, so it can be seen as a nuisance as well.

"However, the way I see a person's character, it can spread to others, and it can also change the way they think and behave, for good or for bad... and that's the potential power I see [in individuality].

"We may feel some sort of suffocation in this world today, but as long as the world is comprised of relationships among humans, it is a person's character, or a group's character, that will provide the 'power' to destroy that 'feeling of entrapment.'

"With those thoughts in mind, we're currently zealously developing the Persona series' next main numbered title. Please look forward to the next announcements."

Persona 5 will be released on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 in 2015.
