According to the interview, the team had originally wanted to make the main character’s personality more optimistic in comparison to previous games, however due to the story’s development, they’ve gone with the introverted personality. He’ll have a hair covering one of his eyes and will be slightly slouched due to this.
Aegis, who comes from before Persona 3: FES, returns as one of the main character’s closest friends.
If anything, the main character of the new Persona sounds just like that of Persona 3. An exact description, actually.
Thanks, LH Yeung.
