WELL THANK GOD! After ten thousand years and a bunch of worthless games (not Catherine that was awesome). I can't wait for it to come to America and other places outside its Home for us true blue turn based JRPG nutcases!

They will rue the day they took this gameplay away from us. All must fall in line and support Persona's epicness with a day 1 purchase if you can even remotely afford it (and I only can in theory) or I will personally pee in your coffee.

I am definitely looking forward to this and i even hope that special edition gets released outside Japan, i rarely buy or care for special editions but that one looks awesome.

Wow 15 days before FFXV – ATLUS is going for it.

I'm excited for both – but I know that PERSONA 5 will definitely be the better "RPG."
