Look, I like Persona’s tried-and-tested true narrative DNA —— A group of abandoned teenagers called on their mysterious other self to protect the world from evil forces, while taking into account hobbies, romance and class. Nevertheless, I am ready for Atlus to bring the mature themes of this series to the adult world.
For the writer’s room, I have two reliable positions: maintain the traditional school background, but give us a university campus composed of 20 actors. Or, a more unconventional route can lead players into the white-collar world. Nothing illustrates the “evil supernatural conspiracy” better than a suffocating office job, with alienated cubicles and supervising managers. Let us, a group of young professionals, be unlucky, introduce them to a series of bad roles, and let us run freely in a distorted, highly corporate Japan.
