The release of Persona 5 is getting closer in Japan so developer Atlus is revealing more details about the game. This time the developer Atlus has revealed Persona 5 online features.
Atlus revealed the Persona 5 online features in the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu. Persona 5 online features include Phantom Thieves Alliance, Alertness Meter and more.
- Phantom Thieves Alliance – Enjoy Persona 5 even more by using this network element. Whether or not you use this feature is up to you and has no effect on the story.
- Battle – In battle, an ally can be taken hostage when they’re knocked out. If you refuse demands for an item and fail negotiations, your ally will no longer be able to battle. But by using the Phantom Thieves Alliance, you can receive help from other players.
- Alertness Meter – If you’re detected while in the dungeon, your Alertness Meter will rise and security will become strict. In the worst case, you won’t be able to continue through the dungeon, but you can lower your Alertness Level by launching a surprise attack on the enemy. Although there are enemies that will run away in a pinch, which raises your Alertness Meter, this can be prevented through the Phantom Thieves Alliance.
- Daily Parts (Pictured) – During your daily life as a high school student, you can interact with cooperation characters, take on part-time jobs, etc. When you’re not sure what to do, you can check what other players did on that day. There is also a survey feature that shows everyone’s answer percentage for questions answered during class.
