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 masks 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.

My Persona street cred isn't huge as I just played Persona 4 Golden not even a year ago, so I'm new to these games. I loved Persona 4 the whole time playing through it, and Persona 5 has already met my expectations and I'm not even done yet.
The story line is well written and very exciting throughout the game. I really enjoy every character so far in the game with each having their own personality that fits well with the group.
Combat is turned based, and it has it's little extra here and there's to make fights really fun. I won't go into detail as the tutorial in the beginning of the game will explain everything. This game is a time sink, so don't expect to beat this game in 10-15 hours. I'm about 55 hours in, and I don't think I'm really close to being done.
I mention before but if you're new, the tutorial will be very helpful for you. It goes through almost everything in the game, which is great because there is a lot you can do in this game.
I highly recommend this game for anyone who might like any JRPG games, or any previous Persona fans.
