Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 5 for PS4, PS3 and X360 is the latest entry in the popular Japanese RPG series, Persona, which is a sub-series of the bigger Megami Tensei franchise. Responsible for the game’s production is, once again, an in-house developer studio of the Atlus company, consisting of the creators of previous parts, like lead designer Katsura Hashino, composer Shoji Meguro and chara designer Shigenori Soejima.
Gameplay and plot
The plot once more puts us in a role of an ordinary high school student, who finds himself in possession of supernatural powers. With his newly discovered abilities he needs to face the forces of darkness. The game follows a typical jRPG pattern, with our hero being relatively weak at the beginning, so much of the gameplay focuses on gaining experience points to develop our character.
Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 5 for PS4, PS3 and X360 is powered by Atlus' new, original graphic engine. The visuals set a cartoonish, yet dark atmosphere that employs the style known from Japanese comics (manga) and animated movies (anime).
