Why You Should Play (Not Watch) Persona ft. DataDave

2 years ago

The Shin Megami Tensei series is renowned for its brutal combat, apocalyptic settings, and mature themes. What started as an offshoot titled "Shin Megami Tensei Revelations: Persona" quickly became its own series, with the Persona series now eclipsing the original in popularity both inside and outside of Japan. Combining aspects of dating sims, party management and Pokémon, the Persona series helped to revitalize the relevancy of turn-based JRPGs, with Persona 5 being one of the most lauded games of last generation.
