    Review Dragon's Crown Pro

    Allow this heart to beat again

    One of the best side-scrolling beat-'em-ups of the last decade is back, but not with a bang. Dragon's Crown Pro offers a welcome return to the beautifully drawn fantasy world of Hydeland, but those who have already sunk hours upon hours into Vanillaware's brilliantly old school romp -- either on PlayStation 3 or PS...

  • News Lengthy Atlus Survey Asks About Persona 6

    And various spin-offs

    Atlus isn't hanging around: it wants to know if people are eager for Persona 6. Obviously, the sequel seems inevitable at this point, but it's still interesting to see the company mention it in its latest Japanese survey. Said survey goes over many of Atlus' properties, asking fans about platforms, spin-offs, and even remakes...

    Review Rock of Ages II: Bigger and Boulder

    Boulder dash

    Rock of Ages II: Bigger and Boulder is one of those games that, on paper, sounds like it shouldn’t work. A sequel to 2011’s Rock of Ages on PlayStation 3, this title is a blend of tower defence and physics-based racing/platforming, all under an aesthetic that immediately brings to mind Terry Gilliam’s Monty Python animations. If...

  • News Persona Maker Atlus Finally Found Europe on a Map

    There is a God

    Atlus fans have had it rough in Europe over the past few years. Persona 5 did just about make it out on time here – primarily thanks to a publishing partnership that the Japanese company signed with Deep Silver – but past releases from the firm have been notorious for their setbacks in the old world. And that’s if they even made...

  • Poll Is Persona 5 the Best Persona Game?

    Now it's personal

    Now that Persona 5 has been out for a good few months, we thought it was about time to ask the ultimate question: is it the best Persona game? Atlus' latest entry in the role-playing series was met with universal critical acclaim and it's safe to say that gamers went absolutely nuts for it. It quickly became the best selling title...

Atlus has released a bunch of screenshots showing off the playable characters of the two titles. On...

  • News Two Brand New Persona Dancing Games Announced for PS4, Vita

    Persona 3 and 5 in the spotlight

    Persona 4 got its dancing game, so now Atlus has decided to reanimate the corpse of Persona 3 so that it can join the party alongside Persona 5. The latter was an inevitability, but a rhythm title based on Persona 3, too? Well, okay, we guess. So here's what's scheduled for 2018 in Japan: Persona 3: Dancing Moon...

  • Rumour P5R Domain Name Suggests Persona 5 Spin-Off or Enhanced Edition

    Chasing phantoms

    Persona 5 getting at least a couple of spin-off games is an inevitability -- especially considering its worldwide success -- but what could they end up being? That's a question that leads to some very interesting theories, as Atlus has recently registered a bunch of Persona related domain names. One suggests a new Dancing All Night...

  • News Persona 5 Has Stolen the Hearts of Around 1.8 Million People

    SEGA provides sales update

    Persona 5 has shipped 1.8 million copies worldwide, according to publisher SEGA. Obviously shipped doesn't mean sold directly to consumers, but as we always say, retailers aren't really in the habit of buying stock that they won't be able to shift. It's also worth remembering that Persona 5 ran into a number of stock...

  • News Persona 5 Streamers Can Now Go Further Into the Game Without Annoying Atlus

    Yay?

    Right, so when Persona 5 launched earlier this month, publisher Atlus made it clear that it didn't want anyone spoiling the game's story - whether by screenshot, video, or livestream. The title blocks the PlayStation 4's share button for a start, and in a statement released by the company, it warned that those who share footage past a certain...

  • News So How Does Persona 5 Compare Between PS4 and PS3?

    Let's find out

    Digital Foundry is back with yet another graphical comparison video, this time taking a look at Persona 5 on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.

  • News Unlike Atlus, Square Enix Sees the Value in Streams

    Imagine being outsmarted by Square Enix

    Square Enix may act like the stupidest organisation on Earth sometimes, but it's not quite as dumb as Atlus when it comes to gameplay videos and streams. You may remember the latter causing something of a stir recently when it decided to block the share button in Persona 5 on the premise of spoilers. It then...

  • Poll Has Persona 5 Been Worth the Hype?

    Now it's personal

    Persona 5 launched just a few days ago, so naturally, we want to know what you lot think of it so far.

According to the press, the years upon years of waiting have been well...

  • Guide Persona 5 Tips and Tricks For Phantom Thieves of All Skill Levels

    Let us start the game

    Persona 5 is probably the most accessible game in Atlus' series thus far. It's got plenty of small tutorials that ease you into each system, and a range of difficulty options cater to players of all skill levels.

    Over 1.5 million copies shipped

    Persona 5 is a certified hit for Atlus, as the company has announced that over 1.5 million copies have been shipped worldwide.

  • News Why Is Persona 5 Streaming and Sharing Banned?

    Share button blocked

    Persona 5 is one of the very few PlayStation 4 games that will outright block the use of your Share button. The game won't allow you to take screenshots or stream gameplay directly from your console - but the limitations don't stop there. Even with capture equipment, there are strict guidelines in place to stop you from showing...

  • News Atlus Blocks PS4 Share Button in Persona 5 to Avoid Spoilers

    No changing this heart

    Persona 5 isn't just an outstanding game - it's also a gorgeous work of art.

    Review Persona 5

    Steal yourself

    Persona 5 is a difficult game to review – not because of its quality or lack thereof, but because it's such an intricate release. It's a role-playing title made up of many different parts, and explaining each and every one of them in detail would take way too long. With that in mind, we'll try to be brief: Persona 5 is a Japanese...

  • Hands On Persona 5 Has Absolutely Stolen Our Hearts on PS4

    Let us start the game

    There's no point in beating around the bush: from what we've played so far, Persona 5 is utterly brilliant. We're around 20 hours in, and although we still have potentially triple that amount of playtime to go, we can't deny that we're absolutely enraptured with Atlus' latest. Even as we're sitting here right now, writing this...

  • News Atlus Survey Asks if You Want Persona HD Remasters

Translated by Siliconera, said survey asks a bunch...

    Phantom thievery

    Unsurprisingly, all of Persona 5's downloadable content will be making its way West following the game's release on the 4th April.

We say clutter,...

    Utawhat now?

    We may have to copy and paste its name over and over again in order to write this article, but the Utawarerumono series is heading West later this year. And yes, we say series because there are actually two titles coming in 2017: Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception and Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth. The former hits this spring, and the...

  • News Persona 5's Soundtrack Is as Brilliant as You'd Expect

  • News Persona 5 Snatches Dual Audio on PS4, PS3 as Free DLC

    Turning Japanese

    Persona 5's been delayed. Yeah, we're disappointed, too - but at least it seems like Atlus is trying to release the very best game that it can here in the West. Case in point: the role-playing title will now feature dual audio as free downloadable content, meaning that you'll be able to play the game with either the English dub or...

  • News Persona 5 Gets Delayed Until April on PS4, PS3

    Back into the shadows

    Bah. There was a rumour earlier this week saying that Persona 5 would be slapped with a delay here in the West, but the source wasn't something that we could base a report on.
