Persona 5 now has an 'Ultimate Edition' and it's $125

$125? Come again?! While it's true that Atlus is offering an Ultimate Edition of Persona 5 on PlayStation Network, it's essentially just a DLC bundling for the sake of convenience; this isn't equivalent to those "game of the year" editions ...

Persona 3 dorm found in Persona 5 (Update)

[Update: Word has gotten out that the Persona 3 dorm assets were not a discovery, but actually someone's custom mod work. I was fooled like many others by the internet. Sorry for getting anyone's hopes up, but this is still pretty cool...

Oh dang, Persona 5 is getting a vinyl set

The next vinyl from iam8bit is a big one: Persona 5! It's such a good candidate that I can see it pushing people into game vinyl ownership for the first time -- assuming they have the money. There will be two sets, both of which will ship i...

PSA: Persona 5's free swimsuit DLC is out now

If you're knee deep in Persona 5 but feel like you haven't accomplished much yet, I feel you. It's a long ass video game, made even longer when you're compelled to re-run dungeons to level up and wander around Tokyo aimlessly trying to cour...

Persona 5's 'Phan-Site' blog is now real

At some point in Persona 5, and I won't reveal too much as I know it's a long ass game, the crew has access to a blog called a "Phan-Site," which covers their goings on. Naturally someone decided to create their own real Phan-Site, and whil...

Some fans are pissed about Persona 5's localization

Localizing a game is no easy task, especially a game like Persona 5. It's a good game, but also a huge one, and localizing it was apparently a mammoth undertaking for Atlus USA. With reportedly 50% more dialogue in its script compared ...

Here's when Persona 5's free and paid DLC hits

Not that you need any more reminders, but Tuesday is Persona 5 day in North America and Europe. That date, April 4, is easy enough to remember. But there's a whole mess more to keep track of in terms of DLC. For everyone's convenience, Atlu...

Persona 5 has a hard block on screenshot and video capture

Easy-to-use, baked-in game capture functionality is one of the best aspects of this console generation. Taking screens and video or even streaming a game can be a mere button press away, and I've grown so accustomed to the feature on PS4, X...

Review: Persona 5

When I was a kid, the Persona series was on the fringe of a niche. I had to be introduced to it on the original PlayStation by way of my cousin, who subsequently went on to show me Wild Arms and a few other classics. But after the resoundin...

Persona 5 is exactly what the Persona series needed

Back when Persona 4 Golden released, I considered its advent as the sign that we as a society had hit the point of "Peak Persona." That game took the already-polished structure of Persona 4 - itself a refinement of&...

Peep two hours of the English version of Persona 5

Look, I know it's not exactly the consolation you're after considering that Persona 5 just got delayed almost two months. It's a bummer for sure. Maybe, hopefully, absence really does make the heart grow fonder. But, Persona 5 do...

Atlus is pushing Persona 5 back to April 4, 2017

Persona 5 is coming later than expected, uh, again! Hopefully this is the last time. Atlus confirmed a revised April 4, 2017 release for North America and Europe today during a livestream. That's a short-term bummer, no doubt about it, but...

Come meet the English voice cast for Persona 5

After playing a game, do you ever look up the voice cast and trace their history only to learn that, "Oh whoa, he also played that guy? And he was in that show? What the?!" (Semi-related: I'm still not over the fact that Uncle Phil from T...

Catherine gets some love in free Persona 5 DLC

Persona 5 has been out for a few weeks in Japan and seems to be doing well. The game garnered a near perfect score in Famitsu and even managed to sell more than 500,000 copies in the dying Japanese console market. Either in celebration of t...

Persona 5 is coming to Dragon's Dogma Online

Persona 5 is out in Japan right now, lucky ducks. And Atlus is strutting -- especially with Final Fantasy XV delayed until the end of November. I just wonder if it won't affect Tokyo Game Show attendance. Atlus is working with some major J...

I'm completely obsessed with this Japanese PS4 Slim trailer

The PlayStation 4 Slim is launching on September 15. Persona 5 is also launching on September 15. Somehow I don't think that's a coincidence. So how do you adequately advertise the biggest game of the month and the launch of a new cons...

This Persona 5 gym training mechanic brings back memories

Maid cafes CONFIRMED for Persona 5

One of my favorite things about playing RPGs set in Japan (before I was able to visit for myself last year for the first time!) is wandering the streets and learning new customs. The Yakuza series (minus the egregious cuts for 3) was r...

Persona 5 battle-wear is my fetish

I loved Persona 4's vibrant pop aesthetic just fine. Entering the TV world to the tune of catchy department store jingles while wearing school clothes (or, later, the Dojima costume!!!). And I like that Persona 5 is doing something differen...

Atlus reveals Persona 5's ninth party member, 'co-op system'

It might all be in Japanese, but Atlus has shown off a lot of Persona 5 gameplay during their special E3 stream. The main takeaway is the reveal of the ninth party member, named "Goro Akechi." He's not just a detective, but he's a high...
