Apparently there was another interview in Dengeki magazine
Initially, Atlus had considered making the MC’s personality a little more optimistic this time but considering the way the story develops, they thought a dark and introverted personality would be more appropriate. Thus, they’re letting his hair hide one of his eyes and he will be slightly slouched.
Aegis will be also appear as one of the characters and will also be the MC’s closest friend. She comes from before Persona 3: FES so you probably won’t be able to find more story taking place after “The Answer”.
I hope this is a case of internet trolling or a mistranslation, this sounds terrible.
Don't let me down Atlus:(
Forum bug lol
Please move this to the Persona 5 board.
