RPG June 2019

A classic dungeon crawler with a turn-based combat system, developed for the 3DS portable console. The game is the second (after Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth) spin-off of the popular series of Japanese role-playing games developed by Atlus. The protagonists of Persona Q2 are the cast of Persona 5 from 2016. The game utilizes gameplay mechanics and principles of the Etrian Odyssey series. It is a typical dungeon crawler in which the player is traveling through a series of dark labyrinths while observing the action from a first-person perspective. The player’s party can consist of up to five characters, each of which has unique skills and attacks, taken from the main entries in the Persona series. The battles are conducted in a turn-based system, on a separate screen. The game features one of the characteristic options of the Etrian Odyssey series – the possibility for the player to manually draw maps and dungeons to explore.

The fifth entry in a popular jRPG series and a part of the Shin Megami Tensei series, started in 1987. As always, the developing studio is Atlus, which created the series. The plot of Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 5 revolves around the theme of seven cardinal sins and puts us in the role of an ordinary high school student, who discovers supernatural powers in himself. The protagonist lead a normal teenager’s life during the day, solving typical school problems and interacting with schoolmates, while at night he turns into a superhero, engaging in a deadly fight against evil. In terms of game mechanics, the production follows in its predecessors' footsteps, combining features of classic jRPG games and their turn-based combat with elements of school life simulator and the, popular in Japan, visual novel genre. Graphics have been created using a new, original engine and feature a dark, though cartoonish, style.
