  • News Catherine: Full Body Arranges a Ménage à Quatre

    Ogle some new screenshots

The game’s...

    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 Persona 5 Has Shipped a Very Healthy 2.2 Million Copies

    Steal your heart

    Persona 5 is the best selling game in Atlus' long running series -- we've known that for quite some time -- but where has it ended up in terms of actual figures? According to SEGA's latest financial report, Persona 5 now sits at 2.2 million copies worldwide, across both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. That's a good amount for a...

  • 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...

  • News Get Your Groove on with First Persona 3 Dancing and Persona 5 Dancing PS4 Screenshots

    Sweet beats

    Hey, these new Persona dancing games are looking good, aren't they? Both Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5: Dancing Star Night are coming to PlayStation 4 as well as Vita, so it's nice to see that the visuals really seem to pop. 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. It's safe to say that the vast majority of players will have bought the game on Sony's latest home console, but it's still interesting to see how the last-gen version shapes up - especially...

  • 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. Atlus' role-playing game is currently the third highest rated PlayStation 4 release ever on Metacritic, sitting at a supremely impressive metascore of 94. 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. Having said that, though, Persona 5 can still seem rather daunting at times. The fact that the game runs on a...

  • Guide Persona 5 Best Ending Walkthrough - Good, Bad, and Other Endings

    How to get the true ending in Persona 5

In this guide, we'll be showing you how to avoid the bad endings and end the game on a relatively happy note. We've split this Persona 5...

  • Guide Persona 5 New Game + - How to Start New Game + and What Carries Over

    The cycle repeats

    Like previous games in the series, Persona 5 has a New Game + mode, which unlocks after you finish the game. It allows you to carry over multiple things that you unlocked during your previous playthrough into a fresh run. Essentially, you can start a new story with a bunch of bonuses. In this guide, we'll detail all aspects of New...

  • Guide Persona 5 Social Links - Where to Find All Confidants and How to Rank Up Fast

    All possible social links detailed

    Unsurprisingly, social links make a return in Persona 5. By choosing to spend your free time with characters that you meet during the game, you'll be able to increase their confidant rank.

  • Guide Persona 5 Difficulty Settings - What Does the Difficulty Level Change?

    Safety, Easy, Normal, and Hard difficulties detailed

    Right near the start of the game, you'll be asked to select Persona 5's difficulty level. There are four difficulty options to choose from: Safety, Easy, Normal, and Hard. Keep in mind that if you choose anything other than Safety, you'll be free to change the difficulty at any time outside of...

  • News Persona 5 Is a Commercial Smash for Atlus

    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. We know that around 550,000 units were sold in Japan when it released last year, so that means roughly one million copies have been distributed around the rest of the globe. Given that the...

  • 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...
