Persona 5 is the newest entry in the long-running Shin Megami Tensei series, and it just so happens to also be one of the best. In fact, Persona 5 is one of the best JRPGs we’ve gotten in years, combining the best elements of previous games in the series into something fresh and new.
Persona 5 tells the story of a group of teenagers living in Tokyo, who discover they can harness the power of Persona. They form a group known as the “Phantom Thieves of Hearts,” and begin to explore supernatural realms known as Palaces. Their mission is to steal the ill intent from the hearts of adults, thereby making the world a better place. Persona 5’s mix of dungeon crawling, battling, and social simulation is hard to not love, especially as it balances everything so well.
For any fan of the genre it’s truly an experience that shouldn’t be missed out on. We’ll walk you through just a few of the reasons why Persona 5 is a must-have.
