Persona 5 is attracting rave reviews, but why listen to critics when you could absorb marketing directly?
Persona 5 really seems to be something special, if its general reception is anything to go by.
Of course, JRPGs aren’t for everyone, but even the most cynical must admit that the visual style is really something else. Peep the Persona 5 release trailer above for a bit of a preview. The whole thing is in that style; it’s the first game to ever make me sit up straight and exclaim in delight over a UI.
Persona 5 is available now on PS3 and PS4. Word is it’s even better in Japanese, as we necessarily lose some of the context by virtue of not being immersed in the culture (no, anime marathons don’t count). But even if the dark social and political commentary or themes go over our heads, a good time is still pretty likely.
