Persona 5 still knows how to keep it weird in the Velvet Room

Atlus just opened up the 25th anniversary Shin Megami Tensei site

My first ever experience with the SMT series was with its spinoff, Persona, back in 1996. My older cousin randomly picked it up because of the demonic imagery, and we spent hours huddled around a crappy TV playing it, switching off at key p...   read
