In Persona 4 Golden, Atlus introduced a difficulty setting know as 'Safety'. Sitting below Easy, Safety essentially ensured that anyone could enjoy the release without having to worry about getting a Game Over screen. Characters would revive automatically if their health hit zero in combat, enemies were significantly weakened, and you'd collect experience points at a much, much faster rate. Some may say that such a difficulty level takes the fun out of things, but we often think that players should be able to enjoy their purchase however they want.

Good news if you're a big fan of the social side of the series and don't want to get stuck into some hardcore grinding sessions, then, as the Safety setting is making a return in Persona 5. It'll exist alongside the standard Easy, Normal, and Hard difficulty levels, and was confirmed in the title's latest gameplay video, which you can watch through here.
