Persona 5 follows the story of a group of high school students, consisting of the protagonist and companions he meets during the game’s story, who all live dual lives as Phantom Thieves. By day they are your average students, but by night they go on adventures using supernatural powers to enter the hearts of others. By confronting the mask society forces them to wear, the heroes can finally unleash their hidden power and help those in need.
I have never personally played a Persona game, but I know a few people who love the series. I was looking to get into the series, and this instalment promises to be playable to veterans of the series as well as newcomers. Also, that Premium Edition is amazing value. Like wow seriously!
