Persona 5 is finally out in North America and Europe, and it looks like it has been worth the wait. Apart from the general praise the game is accumulating all over the internet, its launch trailer is pretty darn awesome and really makes you want to gives this game a go.

The trailer even manages to appeal to someone like me, who is not a fan of JRPGs, by highlighting the game’s visual style and upbeat soundtrack with great-looking anime cutscenes and gameplay moments.

Persona 5 puts you in the stylish suit of a new transfer student of Shujin Academy in Tokyo. After you were framed for a crime by a crooked authority figure in your hometown, you must stay on your best behavior in order to avoid even more trouble. That is why joining the Phantom Thieves and traveling the Metaverse to “battle evil shadows, negotiate with Personas, solve dangerous puzzles, discover terrifying secrets, and change the hearts of evil people by stealing their most vile core desire,” might not be the best of ideas.

Still, it sounds a lot more fun than my high school experience, so what do I know. Persona 5 is currently available on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.
