Plus an interview with her voice actress Erika Harlacher!
The latest trailer for 'Persona 5' is all about Ann Takamaki, one of role-playing game's many playable characters. While the trailer shows off the in-game character, Atlus also released an interview with the voice behind the heroine, Erika Harlacher. Harlacher discusses playing the role, and tells players what to expect from Ann when 'Persona 5' releases next year.
Here's how Atlus describes 'Persona 5's lead female character:
Being the center of school gossip is a quick way to make anyone feel like an outcast, and Persona 5's Ann Takamaki gets the full brunt of that. Ann is a beautiful girl plagued by unjust rumors from her peers on a daily basis. But despite the Scarlett Letter treatment, Ann cares deeply about her friends...which is why she's so eager to pick up the mask and join the Phantom Thieves. Well, that and also to spite the rumors about her and the "excessively friendly" gym teacher at Shujin Academy. And while the Phantom Thieves won't be done with just one lecherous gym teacher, Ann winds up being the closest thing to the group's moral compass. Plus, she's just a total badass that you'd want watching your back in a fight.
'Persona 5' launches in North America for PlayStation 3 and 4 on February 14th.
