Persona 5 gameplay videos show off battle summons and fishing

Atlus has released two more drool-inducing videos showing off Persona 5’s gameplay.

The first of these two videos shows off our heroes, Morgana, Anne, the Protagonist, Ryuji, Haru, Makoto, and Yusuke, summoning different Personas into battle. We’ve certainly come a long way from shooting ourselves in the head with toy guns, haven’t we? It’s definitely Persona, though, with the “Weak” symbols flying all over the place after every attack.

Oh man, I’m feeling an itch to exploit enemy weaknesses that only this series can scratch.

And then there is fishing, because what self-respecting JRPG doesn’t have a fishing mini-game? I’m playing Breath of Fire III in my free time right now, and even that has a fishing mini-game! Persona 5 carries on the tradition with its own spin on the mechanic.

Persona 5 will be released for the PlayStation 4 on Feb. 14.
