Persona 5 Ryuji English introduction trailer, voice actor interview video

Ryuji is voiced by Max Mittelman.

Persona 5

Atlus has released the English voice introduction trailer for Persona 5 character Ryuji, as well as a video interview with his voice actor, Max Mittelman.

Here’s Atlus’ rundown of Ryuji:

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.

Persona 5 is now available for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in Japan, and will launch in North America and Europe on February 14.
