The Persona series moved way to fast for me to grab hold of the speeding train. I swear it went from a tiny name I only heard in obscure passing to the franchise everyone adored over night.
Having said that, I'm going to make a concerted effort to explore the series with the upcoming Persona 5. This game is looking gorgeous and the subject matter is pretty enticing.
To illustrate that, get a look at these new screenshots showing off the game. I love the mix of mundanity and the fantastical. Plus this art direction doesn't hurt either.
