Now that the site is actually working, it looks like they have a new blog post up: http://p-ch.jp/news/detail/?nid=244

It's a message from Hashino and the dev team to fans. He talks about how Persona 5's main influences are School Juvenile fiction and Picaresque novels. Unlike previous Persona games where the players were clearly a team on the side of "good" going after a bad guy, this time they're trying for something a little different. The story is about high school students chasing after their own interpretation of "justice" after an unexpected incident. He hopes fans will enjoy the enhanced graphics and sound in the new entry as well as party members who might be a little more ill-mannered than before.

What an interesting premise. Sounds really cool.

I was expecting another Persona 4 and hoping for another Persona 3.

What I got destroyed both of those expectations with something far better than I could have imagined. Glad to see they're taking this direction and even taking advantage of Catherine's animation.

I think 自分達が考える正義の為に「追われる」立場になっていく translates more into something like "they become the ones who are being chased for [pursuing] what they think is justice." But perhaps I just need more coffee.

Anyway, the trailer surpassed my expectations, and I'm now more excited for this game than ever. I'm back to work, and tonight I'll watch it a few times more.

Holy fucking shit.... I went to sleep, not expecting much from this event.
I am absolutely blown away, I don't even know what to say. This is EXACTLY what I wanted from Persona 5. By far my most anticipated title of the year.

It's times like these that make me appreciate that I'm a huge nerd who can get super into even small stuff like a 3 minute trailer.

Oh wow, they brought back the portrait reaction thing from P3, when someone says something and another person's portrait pops up on screen for a second. I missed them in P4.

Looks like no more social links and you fight your old persona like sandman in fights. Didn't see social links in the menu. Big changes holy crap.

There never were "Social Links" in the Japanese menu, because they're called "community" there. It's probably the cooperation feature.

So the MC has a gun, blonde guy has a steel pipe, blonde lass (who may or may not be blonde guy's sibling) has a whip and the cat has a slingshot.

Holy shit that was nuts. Super stylish, I'm loving the gifs from it. Hopefully there is a famitsu with details soon.

Ab fab~☆

Hopefully that's not the whole cast, though. I don't care for 3+1 casts.

And condolences to anyone that wanted the series to move on from the school setting.

It's been like 10 years since I last played P2, I don't remember that bit :S

Nah, it wasn't Nyar exactly, it was basically their shadow self, which was a lot nastier in P2 than it was in P4.

Edit:Oh wait, yeah:
Nyarlathotep did appear as them towards the end of P2:EP, the shadows there were a little different than the ones in IS.

Looks amazing! Other RPG developers need to understand the importance of style. If we're going to flip through the same menus and same battle systems for 100 hours in your game, you better make it visually appealing.

I wonder if they're going back to negotiations or if the MC has a locked persona like the rest of the party. Not gonna lie, I'm hoping for the latter.

I'm not liking the super hero thing going on in this trailer.

Also, a cat is apparently part of the core team this time around?

Also, their persona's seem to be literal masks/outfits in this game based on the sequence at the end.
