The game is set in modern-day Tokyo, where the main character has recently moved to participate in high school under close watch because he is under probation for a crime he was unjustifiedly accused of. At some point in the school year, he and other students discover their powers to summon Personas. It is up to them to make use of their Personas to break into the minds and hearts of adults to reverse their negative and corrupt thoughts before it can provoke harm to others.
The Phantom Thieves, as they’re known, explore the Metaverse, which is a supernatural realm originating in humanity’s subconscious desires. Some of them are good, while the others are bad.

After claiming such Treasures, evil thoughts vanish from the psyche of their target, and they take a turn for the better.
Thanks to this exciting process, The Phantom Thieves can turn once malevolent people into virtuous citizens.
