Atlus 5’s Persona 5 is running for only $39.99 on PS4, slashing $19.99 off the original price.
Persona 5 is the sixth instalment in Persona series. This time, the RPG title tells the story about a group of Highschool students who manage to awaken their ‘persona’ powers, allowing them to live dual lives as ‘Phantom Thieves’. The ‘persona’ ability is based off Carl Jung’s concept of ‘Self’ and the disparity between your ideal self and realistic self.
Persona 5 is a game about the internal and external conflicts of a group of troubled high school students – the protagonist and a collection of compatriots he meets in the game’s story – who live dual lives as Phantom Thieves. They have the typically ordinary day-to-day of a Tokyo high schooler – attending class, after-school activities and part-time jobs. But they also undertake fantastical adventures by using otherworldly powers to enter the hearts of people. Their power comes from the Persona, the Jungian concept of the “self;” the game’s heroes realize that society forces people to wear masks to protect their inner vulnerabilities, and by literally ripping off their protective mask and confronting their inner selves do the heroes awaken their inner power, and use it to strive to help those in need. Ultimately, the group of Phantom Thieves seeks to change their day-to-day world to match their perception and see through the masks modern-day society wears.
