DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know Persona, also known as Shin Megami Tensei: Persona is a spin-off of the Shin Megami Tensei (SMT) series? Persona series started when Atlus created Revelations: Persona on the PlayStation in 1996. So far, there are sixth main games: Persona 2: Innocent Sin, Persona 2: Eternal Punishment, Persona 3, Persona 4, Persona 5 and the first one previously mentioned. Each Persona game has a different story sharing a similar approach. Wherein it follows high school students in different settings around Japan. But what makes Persona unique is because of its urban fantasy concept, which is different from the normal Japanese RPGs. Besides the main games, there are several spin-off titles of Persona. It includes free-to-play online games like Persona 3: The Night Before and Persona Ain Soph, which are now offline. Atlus also created spin-offs continuing the stories of the characters on Persona 3 and 4. But, those spin-offs did not have any major impact on Persona 5. Now, the most asked question for those interested in the game is what is the best Persona game to start with? Well, there is no right answer for that, as it differs for every person.

Moreover, it has been more than two years since the release of Persona 5. Fans are now wondering if there will be upcoming Persona games. Fret not, because Altus is now working on a new version of Persona 5 called Person 5 R. But Altus hasn't confirmed whether it will be a remake or enhanced version.

    "Still a good game but definitely not the best persona one. This one doesnt really have a story driving force so it feels a bit lacking for me. The best would probably Persona 5 for me. "
