Persona 5 director Katsura Hashino previously said the developer is "going with a challenge that fuses together a juvenile school setting that is as large as life, together with a picaresque romance."
"In the previous game, we wrote a story that involved having a justice group chase down a bad guy that could easily be feared by just about anyone," he added.
"This time, it's about a group of high school students that are being 'chased' by unexpected occurrences due to the justice they believe in. We're writing [the story] to convey a thrilling everyday life in the shoes of these characters, that are as large as life, in this juvenile school setting."
