Persona 5 released earlier this month and has been highly praised by the gaming community, becoming one of this year’s highest rated games. To celebrate the game's success, publisher Atlus has released the game's accolades trailer.
The newest transfer student of Shujin Academy in Tokyo is a bad kid. Well, that's what the rumors say at least. The truth is that the protagonist of Persona 5 was framed for a crime he didn't commit by crooked authority figures in his hometown. Unfortunately, he's simply the victim of a corrupt system, and he must remain on this best behavior in order to avoid more trouble with society. This will DEFINITELY prove difficult because he soon discovers the power to travel into another world, known as the Metaverse, and change the most distorted desires of wicked people.
Persona 5 is a game about the internal and external conflicts of a group of troubled youth who live dual lives. They have the typically ordinary day-to-day of a Tokyo high-schooler - attending class, after school activities and part-time jobs. But they also undertake fantastical adventures by using otherworldly powers to enter the hearts of people. Their power comes from the Persona, the Jungian concept of the "self;" the game's heroes realize that society forces people to wear masks to protect their inner vulnerabilities, and by literally ripping off their protective mask and confronting their inner selves do the heroes awaken their inner power, and use it to strive to help those in need. Ultimately, the group of Phantom Thieves seeks to change their day-to-day world to match their perception and see through the masks modern-day society wears.
Persona 5 is available for PS4 and PS3.
