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.
This is a game that has an identity, and it wears it proudly on its sleeve. The music also manages to convey this style, as here the visuals and audio go perfectly hand in hand. If you're simply doing your part-time job in the ﬂower shop, the music is calm and soothing, while an exhilarating tune is hammered through when combat ensues.
