The Persona series began in 1996 as an experimental spin-off of the Megami Tensei series of RPGs. Departing from the traditional first-person gameplay and post-apocalyptic setting of its parent series, Persona games take place in a modern metropolis and focus on a party of high school students, each wielding the power of "Personas". Personas are described as "masks to wear through everyday life", and bestow the user with a guardian entity which takes the form of a mythological figure and is capable of magic and other supernatural abilities. The games take heavy symbolism from Jungian psychology, as well as the tarot cards. Each game takes place in a separate locale and makes few direct references to its predecessor, though various Personas recur from game to game, as does the series' mainstay location "The Velvet Room" and its mysterious master Igor. Inevitably, the protagonists end up confronting the supernatural being responsible for the game's central conflict, and defeat them in combat in order to resolve it. More modern Persona games (3 and onward) place additional emphasis on "Social Links", a visual-novel like system where the player character converses with various NPCs, including their party members, and helps them through the struggles of their individual character arcs. In turn, the strengthened bonds of the Social Links grant the main character additional power, such as new Personas to wield or added inventory to shops.
As part of the Fighters Pass, Joker will come bundled with a stage and its corresponding music; these have not yet been announced. However, an instrumental version of "Life Will Change" was used in Joker's reveal trailer, as well as the track "The Spirit", though the latter is far less likely to make it into the game, considering its repetitive nature.
