Simply put, Persona 5 IS THE BEST JRPG this gen, if not one of the best games too. You need to buy this game. It is essential playing, right up there with Persona 4 Golden.
Another amazing entry in the persona franchise. For those who don't speak Japanese (I myself don't) please be aware that there are multiple guides that have the text translated for you and a fan guide for a lot more of persona 5 is currently being worked on and updated by tarudksoft. And be aware that you should always have google translate ready for when playing incase puzzles or social links that the guide didn't go over (there is a camera feature that makes it super helpful). Overall persona 5 is a great Altus game with awesome music like always and the new streamlined gameplay will always be fun as can be with its outstanding style.
Probably.. no, definitely the best game released this year! And I played alot of different western/jp games. Hands down Atlus, I can feel that titanic effort you put in this masterpiece. Definitely must buy for those who can speak japanese.
I have never played the other Persona titles before, and I got curious because of the interesting mix of RPG and life-sim. Really like both parts of the game and the fact that everything is influencing each other.
I play it without problems on a German PS4 so if you can speak Japanese and don't want to wait until next year, I can just recommend it.
