Earlier this month, Atlus warned streamers to not broadcast beyond an early point in the game, seemingly threatening content claims and strikes for anyone who defied their wishes. Today, Atlus is walking some of that back.
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.
One minute my five-year-old was giggling along with the playful antics of Yooka-Laylee on the PlayStation 4. The next he was in Persona 5, erasing over 35 hours of Phantom thievery in the blink of an eye. It’s the closest I’ve come to crying over a video game in years.
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. I named my team Semiotecs, because I’m a fucking nerd, but…
I know, Persona 5 is barely out in the West. But it’s been out in Japan for months, giving loads of locals—and some enterprising importers from overseas—more than enough time to come up with some outstanding cosplay.
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. But if you ever want to talk about coffee, then hoo boy, does Persona 5 want to break shit down for you.
The new RPG Persona 5 brought back the Shin Megami Tensei series staple of demon negotiation. In order to acquire new Personas, you have to chat with them. But the guide for getting this right is hidden away (h/t Twitter user Aeana!).
Persona 5 isn’t just a fantastic video game, it’s an absolute feast for the senses, with a strong, confident art style that runs from its character design all the way through to its menus.
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. Now throw all that in the garbage and replace it with something impossibly cooler, impossibly more stylish,…
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.
