Protagonist (voiced by Jun Fukuyamaz)
The protagonist. A third-year high

incidents involving psychotic breakdowns and awakened to his Persona abilities.
He formed the Phantom Thieves of Hearts with his friends to reform the
distorted hearts of rotten adults, and led a major case full of conspiracy to
resolution. After the case was shut, he returned home, but visits Yongen-Jaya
in Tokyo once again for summer vacation.
A dauntless all-rounder with a wide
range of attack skills.
Code Name: Joker. He has high mobility and
attack power, and unleashes quick, close-range attacks with his dagger. His
ability to fight with a wide range of skills is his greatest weapon, and he can
use attacks of various attributes depending on the combination.
His initial Persona is Arsene. He
specializes in Curse-type skills and can sweep up enemies with his sinister
power. Additionally, Joker is the only member of the Phantom Thieves who can
freely change Personas. His wide range of attack skills allows him to strike
the enemy’s weak point.
Joker has as many Show Times as he does
Sophia (voiced by Misaki Kuno)
A mysterious girl the Protagonist and others encounter in the other world version of Shibuya. She seems to have all but forgotten her memory, except for her goal to “become a good friend to humans.” She is often giddy and mysterious, but her goal to “become a good friend to humans” is genuine, and in order to accomplish that she works hard to support the Protagonist and company. She can fight with Shadows using abilities that resemble a Persona. She is a character full of mystery, including the reason why she is in that other world.
Rhythmically connect attacks to sweep up
crowds of enemies.
Code Name: Sophie. In battle, her outfit
extends and covers her head, and her hairstyle changes. She fights using
yo-yos, allowing her to swiftly attack a wide range of enemies. For her gun
attack, she uses a Blaster.
Sophie fights using floating objects
called Pithos, which are similar to a Persona. She uses techniques of the same
property as Bless-type skills. And in addition to Healing-type skills that
support her friends, she also has skills that can weaken enemies.
The full game will launch on PlayStation 4 and Switch on February 20, 2020 in Japan. There should be a western version coming at a later time.
