Famitsu might be aware that they have previously released a fan book in Japan called the “Persona 5 Mementos Report”. Now, the team have confirmed that they are working on the second volume of the series, and they want to hear more from fans in the West with an English survey, which they’ll take directly to Atlus’ Persona Team to get answered.
The Volume 1 of the “Persona 5 Mementos Reports” has been released in Japanese (Japanese article), and Famitsu have confirmed in the article that they are considering an English version of the fan book, which we would absolutely love to see in the West.
The “Persona 5 Mementos Reports” volume is based on a special survey that asks you about your most memorable moments while playing Persona 5, and your biggest questions about the game and it’s lore. Famitsu then brings these burning questions to Atlus’ Persona Team in Japan. These might include, for example from the first Phan-Survey and Volume 1, “How did Ann and Shiho meet, and what made their chemistry good?”
The fanbooks will contain answers from the Persona Team, featuring numerous illustrations by a rich lineup of talented artists. Numerous Q&A’s will look into background lore such as “How was April like for each friend before they met the protagonist?” and “What is Ryuji’s mom like?”, as well as episodes from other players that mirror your own fun.
The second Phan-Survey, which will help them with Volume 2, covers May 5 to July 9 in the game – from your formative victory buffet which results in the birth of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts, till you beat Madarame’s Palace and Kaneshiro’s Palace. (We’re expecting a lot of questions about Yusuke Kitagawa and Makoto Niijima!)
Below is a sneak peek of Volume 2’s cover, in draft form – an original piece by popular illustrator NOCO, famous for character designs on the “Atelier” games!
You can participate in the English survey here. You can participate as many times as you’d like and the Persona Team will do their best to answer some of the questions that fans might want to know. However, keep in mind that the Persona 5 Mementos Reports are based on the base game of Persona 5, so that means there won’t be anything about Persona 5 the Animation or Persona 5 The Royal.
Persona 5 is available on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. Persona 5 The Royal releases in Japan on October 31, 2019 for PlayStation 4. The game releases in the West in 2020.
