Watch 9 minutes of Persona 5 gameplay from E3

Longest look at the game yet

For the first time since announcing Persona 5 would be released next February, Atlus has shown off extended gameplay footage from the game. It can be seen in the video above.

The footage is in Japanese, as are the dialogue bubbles that pop up on screen, but the footage does give far better insight into the game's mechanics, characters that will be introduced and, of course, demons. One of the biggest announcements is that the negotiation system would be making a return to the game to help with taking care of demons. On top of that, the "All-Out Attack" system will return in Persona 5, allowing players to take out an entire team of demons with one attack.

Other battle mechanics, like the "1 MORE" attack, will also be back in the game, but Persona 5 will introduce some new mechanics for fans to use, too. A conversion system will allow players to interact with demons, where money, powers and items can be traded in for the ability to use an All-Out Attack.

Persona 5 was originally announced in 2013 and was expected to be released in Winter 2014. The game was delayed for the first time, however until 2015 where it was delayed once more until 2017. The game will be made available a little earlier in Japan, on Sept. 15, before coming stateside on Feb. 14.
