A slew of Persona 5 trademarks have been registered in Japan, including p5d.jp, p5u.jp, p5ag.jp and p5r.jp. Place your bets now for Persona 5 Dancing, Persona 5 Ultimax, Persona 5: After Golden and, uh, Persona 5 R...something?
Most of the women available for romance in Persona 5 are your fellow high school students. But not all of them.
Persona 5 stars a group of Phantom Thieves who go on heists to steal the twisted desires of targets in the land of Tokyo’s collective unconscious, the Metaverse. The main characters also get a costume change in these heists. Persona 5’s protagonist doesn’t talk in the game, but they say everything you need to know…
Here’s a bad thing about a very good video game: there are too many nights in Persona 5 where I want to go out on the town and improve myself and hang out with my sexy teen friends, but I’m not allowed, because a talking cat thinks I need some sleep.
Persona 5, an otherwise wonderful game, definitely has some localization issues. You can find many examples of clunky writing and awkward translation decisions, but this one might be the biggest flub of them all, for a variety of reasons.
Persona 5's user interface is so beautiful and distinctive that the internet is now plastering it on nearly everything as a joke.
Canonically, the group of charming burglars in Persona 5 is dubbed the Phantom Thieves of Hearts. Persona 5 also allows players to give the group a custom name that occasionally shows up in dialogue and is viewable to friends with Persona 5's network features.

Persona 5 is a game about Japanese teens, but the game never explains the nuances of Tokyo youth culture. It’s a game about the Japanese government, but never briefs you on the finer points of local politics.

Yesterday, Atlus warned Persona 5 players that if they show gameplay footage after a certain point in the game, Atlus will go after their channels with copyright claims and strikes.

Before you start playing Persona 5, a video game about stylish teens learning how to take care of a cat, you need to answer a simple question: Do you agree that the game is fictional?
Persona 5 is a chill game, so it’s only fitting that the developers at Atlus would have no chill whatsoever, openly threatening content claims and strikes for anyone who streams too far in the story.
Persona 5 is a really good game. It’s also complicated and occasionally unforgiving, with a ton of rules to learn and systems to memorize. If you want to live your best possible year in Tokyo, you may want a little guidance.
Imagine your old high school. Picture the doors you’d pass through at the start of each day. See if you can recall the awkward conversations you had with your friends, or the smell of the cafeteria at lunchtime.

The most common question we’ve gotten, when talking about how much we love the new video game Persona 5, is whether there are lots of people to kiss. The second most common question is: Can you play it without playing the other Persona games? The answer to both of these questions is yes.
The 2009 Nintendo DS game Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey is getting a revamped version for the 3DS.
Here’s our first look at Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology in action, complete with refreshed character art, anime cinematic, and a slew of ultra-vibrant looking little sprites.
In February of 2011, Atlus released a DS role-playing game called Radiant Historia that I described as the love child of Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy Tactics. It was under-appreciated. And now it’s coming back.
In the wake of Breath of the Wild turning out to be one of the greatest video games ever made, I have some bad news for your time and wallet: Persona 5 might be up there, too.
