High school is tough and Persona 3 did a masterful job capturing the complexities of student life. Easily one of the best JRPGs I’ve played, the game gave players an extremely difficult choice near its end that still haunts me.
Here’s a Kotaku.com cosplay rule: if there’s good Persona 5 cosplay, it goes on the website.
Persona 5's art book, now available in English, has some...interesting things to say about the design of a couple of the game’s best characters, Takemi and Kawakami.
Ryuji Sakamoto is the first friend you make in Persona 5, a fellow 16-year-old outcast at Shujin Academy. He’s loudmouthed, thoughtless, and has been the recipient of a significant amount of fan hate. I love him.
Atlus revealed that Persona 3 Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5 Dancing Star Night are headed to the PS4 and the Vita next spring in Japan.
There’s an IM app available on the Play Store that will let you message just like the protagonist from Persona 5. It’s great, including everything from the swish animations to the colour-coded days of the week.
When PlayStation Korea uploaded the Persona 5 title sequence for the game’s upcoming release in the country, fans noticed something: Ryuji Sakamoto’s shoes.
Say you just spent 100 hours finishing Persona 5. You feel exhausted, satisfied, probably a little sad. Here’s something fun you can now do.
Persona 5 is a game entirely about making friends with magic teens and well-meaning (well, mostly) adults. Yet not all friends are created equal.
While we’ve seen a ton of Japanese Persona 5 cosplay, the game has been out long enough in the West now for a fresh wave to come rolling in.
I finished Persona 5 a few weeks ago and, unable to get my magical high school friends out of my head, decided I’d jump back in and give its New Game Plus mode a try. It’s not something I normally do with games, but I’m sure glad I did it here.
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…
JRPG victory music is one of the best types of video game music. Every time you emerge from battle victorious, a familiar, stirring theme plays. I want that music to play in my everyday life.
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.
