Players new to the series should have no difficulty learning the ropes but, if you want to enjoy the story, you are advised to not go beyond the first two difficulty modes “Safety” and “Easy”.
Meanwhile, in dungeons, there will be safe rooms for you to take refuge in. These can also act as fast travel points as you can move from one safe room to another. You can save your progress in a safe room while not being vulnerable to any attacks.
Persona 5 will release in Japan on September 15th while for the rest of the world it will release the next year on February 14. The game is a PlayStation exclusive and will release for the PlayStation 3 and Sony’s flagship console, PlayStation 4.
