Robert’s Pick: While some might consider Japanese role-playing games a niche genre, Atlus’ Megami Tensei series has been the outlier, attracting a growing audience with each successive iteration. With a context in modern-day Tokyo, anime cutscenes produced by Production I.G., and a theme about not quite fitting in, Persona 5 represents everything I enjoy about JRPGs.

  1. Yep, P5 for me. Been waiting forever for the game.

  2. “Dick Wilde”, huh? That’s an interesting name!

  3. No surprise for your pick this week.

  4. The regular edition of Persona 5 only comes out after the steelbook launch version has been sold out.

  5. Will you be reviewing P5 this week?

  6. Persona 5 this week. I’ve been waiting for months to play the game.
