A picture is worth 1,000 words and a good Simpsons picture is worth one kwyjibo. An intrepid Twitter user is turning still from The Simpsons into wonderful summaries of 2017's top video games.
Have you noticed? Some of the biggest recent Japanese role-playing games feature older sister type characters instead of predominately kid sister ones popular in years past.
Here’s a Kotaku.com cosplay rule: if there’s good Persona 5 cosplay, it goes on the website.
In Persona 3 and 4, reality outside of the world of shadows was high school life, social links, and excursions that, for the most part, were enjoyable and light-hearted. In Persona 5, every day life is bleak.
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.
Atlus has filed a Digital Millennium Copyright Act takedown against the creators of the Playstation 3 emulator RPCS3, previously noted for running Persona 5. With the emulator, the game would be playable on PC, which doesn’t officially run the game.
“If you hold on life won’t change.”
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.
Here’s the first good look at a Persona 5 figure that won’t be out until next year, but will have already changed your heart: Figma’s Joker, who also includes Morgana whether you want him or not, because of course he would.
There’s a Persona 5 anime coming. Atlus announced it earlier today. It’s called Persona 5 the Animation and there’s already a short trailer.
In April, we posted a video of Persona 5 running quite poorly on the PC via an emulator. Now, only a few months later, it’s looking fantastic.
Once people actually got inside, Anime Expo was of course one hell of a cosplay show. Here’s one early, personal highlight: a crew dressed up as Persona 5's battle menu.
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.
I will always post Persona 5 cosplay on this website.
