When it comes to upcoming JRPGs, there is no game with more warranted hype than Atlus’ Persona 5. It will be the first current-gen iteration of what has been a consistently outstanding franchise. But you may be surprised to learn that all of its hype has been built without anyone seeing a lick of gameplay. Today, that changes.

Persona 5’s first real trailer has made a debut, and it’s a good one. Standing at nearly three minutes in length, the trailer features a mixture of story cutscenes and gameplay, including hints of new features for the franchise. You can see it above.

A few things we’ve learned from the trailer:

  • There will be a playable cat character.
  • Combat appears to be more action RPG oriented.
  • There’s a cover system of sorts.
  • “Stealth” is back.
  • Environments feature¬†many more characters on-screen than previous iterations.
  • The game’s menus are incredibly stylish.
  • There will be clothing swaps for characters judging by a menu element in the trailer.
