Has Persona 5's Gameplay Trailer Dulled Your Excitement for Final Fantasy XV?

Persona-lly speaking

Some wouldn't like to admit it, but it's not often that a Japanese role-playing game has the weight to make waves in the current climate of our industry – at least, not here in the West.

Would you look at that

This is going to be a pretty short article, mainly because it consists of a single picture that was found by Twitter user @snowdust_sky. With the marathon Persona stream still going on, we're slowly but surely reaching the end of a countdown that's supposedly tied to Persona 5. What'll happen when the clock hits zero? We're...

You'll Never Guess Who Was Voted Persona 4's Best Character

Scandal

Persona 4's stuffed full of brilliantly written characters, so it's always going to be hard picking a favourite. You might adore idol-on-a-break Rise, or you may think that knucklehead-with-a-heart-of-gold Kanji simply can't be beat, but neither of them have taken the top spot on this fan poll. The vote comes courtesy of the utterly...

Prepare Yourselves for 30 Hours of Persona Goodness

Ready teddie

If we ran a poll right now asking you to vote for your most anticipated game, we'd hazard that Persona 5 would finish somewhere near to the top.

Citizens of Earth (PlayStation 4)

Recruit 'em all

It's not every day that a developer fails to fund its game through Kickstarter, but still gets picked up by a publisher of legendary stature like Atlus. However, this is the exact route taken by Eden Industries with its SNES-inspired Citizens of Earth, which borrows heavily from Ape and HAL Laboratory's cult classic, EarthBound. With...

Rollers of the Realm (PlayStation 4)

They see me rollin'

There are some unusual mash-ups of game genres out there that are either smashing successes or faltering failures. There are RPG third-person shooters like Mass Effect, hack-‘n’-slash action RPGs such as Darksiders II, and then there’s something like Destiny, an MMORPG open world first-person…well, you get the gist of...

Get Those Trendy Specs On, Persona 5 Is Taking a Train West Next Year

Surprise we guess

The disappointment was almost palpable during Sony's PlayStation Experience event earlier today as Adam Boyes mentioned Persona 5, only to confirm that it is indeed coming to North America in 2015. And, er, that was about it. We didn't have any doubts that the highly anticipated RPG would make it West, but at least now it's set in...

Smooth moves

Just when you thought fan favourite tough guy Kanji Tatsumi couldn't possibly embarrass himself further, he appears in this new trailer for Persona 4 Dancing All Night sporting a dumb smile and some pretty hilarious moves. The buff blonde isn't alone, though, as he's joined by fellow dungeon-delvers Yosuke and Chie. All three persona...

Hamil Smash!

For fans of Japanese titles, there are always those of myth and legend; the games everyone has heard about, but very few mortal souls have seen them with their own eyes. The strategy RPG series Tears to Tiara falls into this bracket after never being released outside it's native country — that is, until now. Skipping a generation,...
