Persona 5 is one of the most unusual RPG games to come out on the PS4. The game saw an overwhelmingly positive response from critics and fans alike because of its brilliant visual design, amazing characters, and an outstanding campaign. The campaign stretches to almost 100 hours despite being a linear game and quite impressive considering even open-world RPGs fail to offer that much content even with filler side quests involved. While fans of open world games might not like the linear design, it is definitely worth checking out. In case you want to know more about the franchise you can check out the official anime as well.
As soon as you start a new game, the player has to infiltrate a casino with other main characters of the game who are known as Phantom Thieves With the police surrounding you, your only option is to escape from the ceiling. This is where you are introduced to Shadows for the first time. Shadows are created from the lower parts of the human psyche which contain suppressed thoughts. Those who are capable of harnessing the power of Shadows are known as Persona-users. Even if you beat the shadow that appears at the start of the game, you can’t escape, and you end up in police custody and thus begins our protagonist’s tale.
Persona 5 was first announced in 2014, and it took three years until it finally came out. On the one hand, we have games like Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry with one sequel after another and very little to offer when it comes to innovation, Persona 5 offers something truly unique over its predecessor. The popular RPG by Atlus is by no means groundbreaking or an innovative title with new mechanics that have never been seen before. In fact, the game was actually inspired by other popular titles as well as the work by Carl Jung, who is a famous psychiatrist and psychoanalyst based in Switzerland.
The turn-based combat is similar to older Final Fantasy titles the art style is similar to what you would find in anime, but the color palette is striking. Persona 5 is stylish in every way but it does not put a façade on what’s inside Players who tried out Persona 3 or 4 before hopping on to Persona 5 will find themselves right at home. The game has dungeon crawling mechanics similar to Diablo, and there is no procedural level generation involved. Unlike the massive amount of time players got to clear objectives in Persona 3 or 4, Persona 5 is much more frantic and you are constantly racing the clock.
How to Get All Persona 5 Endings
There are five endings to Persona with 3 bad endings, a good ending, and a bad ending. There are a number of prerequisites to some of the ends, so you need to be very careful with your gameplay if you want to get the best endings. All of the endings affect not only the protagonist but also the other main characters of the game. The endings also affect the whole Metaverse as a while. Since you are given multiple Personas to control, your choices can change the outcome heavily.
