Atlus is wasting Persona 5 Royal’s hottest character
The internet has been buzzing lately because of the newly published information character 5 side game, Ghost in the Night (P5X). Fans are intrigued by the new characters, but they’re also excited to see their old favorites again. But when I looked at the screenshot, I noticed one person was missing: Goro Akechi. What brings, Atlus? You can’t just pretend that Royal Character 5The main antagonist of the film is also not the most attractive character. He’s a real member of the Phantom Thieves group, and his haters might go crazy for it.
Goro Akechi is a high school student who acts as the rival of the main character of character 5. In the original game, he was famous for betraying the group after posing as their friend. He also does this in advanced Royal released, but this 2019 update of the game adds extra scenes for him. These social interactions make Akechi feel more like a friend in deep trouble than a fucking cop whose heart changes at the last moment.
Like most RPG fighting games, Akechi has a tragic backstory. His mother died when he was young, and he grew up as an orphan (who often had to deal with significant social stigma In Japan). Akechi wanted revenge on his neglectful and cruel father, so he teamed up with him to get close enough to assassinate him. Unfortunately, his father also planned to assassinate his son long ago. Akechi eventually realizes that the protagonist is someone similar to him, and has chosen to sacrifice himself to ensure his escape from the heroic Phantom Thieves.
It also helps with that in Royal, the player must spend more time with him in a whole new arc. Post-game added a new semester in which reality has completely changed. In this changed Tokyo, each character has a personal tragedy to be solved and each lives a happy life. This was the only situation where Akechi could be saved. However, he rejects the artificial world and the false happiness that comes with it. Since he was presumed dead in the original plot, defeating the master of this world would mean that he would cease to exist. He doesn’t care. For him, it is better to die than to live under the thumb of some higher power.
But I want him alive! As you pursue an ending in which the artificial world is destroyed, Royal teased the possibility that Akechi might have survived. And so I held my breath waiting for the possibility of meeting Akechi again in the next game dispute. I never finished that musou game despite finishing a lot of other games. Akechi isn’t in it, and that’s definitely part of the reason. I didn’t make a terrible investment in a P5 in which he does not exist.
I hope that is a stroke of luck. Akechi is very good and he deserves to appear in other side games. Now it seems P5X could also disappoint me, and I began to lose hope that Atlus remembered who he was. This is homophobia, and I will not support it. Atlus, give us my wild son or give me death.
