Persona 5 is undoubtedly one of the best JRPGs that we’ve not only seen in recent years, but perhaps we’ve ever seen. The follow-up to the classic that was Persona 4 builds upon its forebear in every department, both in terms of its dungeons and its day-to-day shenanigans. Aside from a few weird pacing issues and some uninteresting boss fights, Persona 5 is at the top of its game, which will delight fans of Japanese games and culture around the world.
Persona 5 is special, even more so for people who have been paying attention to this series for the past few decades. Just, you know, clear your calendar for a while.
I could nitpick about small issues, like some textures that are painfully blurry or a handful of quirky localization issues. Those issues fade into the periphery, however. What doesn’t is simply this: Persona 5 is a triumph of game design that stands apart from other JRPGs. RPG fans owe it to themselves to drop what they’re doing and play now. You won’t regret it.
