Today, Atlus has released the next trailer in their line of videos planned to introduce Western audiences to the cast of Persona 5 ahead of it’s release. Today’s look is at Ryuji, along with a video interview with his voice actor, Max Mittelman. Check out an official description of Ryuji Sakamoto from Atlus, as well as the two trailers, below. Persona 5 is currently scheduled to be released on February 14, 2017 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.
Shujin Academy is home to many high school delinquents, but the most notorious misfit would have to be Persona 5’s Ryuji Sakamoto. Ryuji was a promising track star who tragically suffered a career ending injury due to “overtraining” by the sadistic coach Kamoshida. With no future in the sport he loves and experiencing first-hand the evil of “shitty adults,” Ryuji becomes a social pariah who rebels against a society he perceives as corrupt.Even though he’s the definition of a troublemaker, he has a kind heart and always puts the Phantom Thieves before himself. In short, Ryuji is a true friend that can always be counted on to have your back in a jam. Plus, having a tough guy with a skull mask in your crew is just awesome.
