Persona 5 is a 2016 role-playing video game , which is developed by Atlus. It is based on modern-day Tokyo and follows a high school student known by the pseudonym Joker who transfers to a new school after being falsely accused of assault and put on probation. Over the course of a school year, all of the students awaken to a special power, becoming a group of secret vigilantes known as the Phantom Thieves of Hearts. They explore the Metaverse and a supernatural realm born from humanity's subconscious desires which steals malevolent intent from the hearts of adults. In previous series, the party battles enemies known as Shadows using physical manifestations of their psyche known as their Personas. The game incorporates role-playing and also dungeon crawling elements alongside social simulation scenarios.
Persona 5 is the sixth installment of the Persona series, which is part of the larger Megami Tensei franchise. It was released for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 in Japan in September 2016 and worldwide in April 2017, and was published by Atlus in Japan and North America and by Deep Silver in Europe and also in Australia. An enhanced version featuring new content, Persona 5 Royal,was released for the PlayStation 4 in Japan in October 2019 and worldwide in March 2020, published by Atlus in Japan and North America and by franchise owner Sega in Europe and Australia. Royal is set for release on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, Windows, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S in October 2022.
Persona 5 was developed by P-Studio which is an internal development studio within Atlus led by game director and producer Katsura Hashino. Along with Hashino, a returning staff from earlier Persona games included character designer Shigenori Soejima and music composer Shoji Meguro. Preparatory work began during the development of Persona 4, with full development beginning just after the release of Catherine in 2011. First it was announced in 2013 that Persona 5 was delayed from its original late 2014 release date due to the game not being fully finished. Its themes revolve around attaining freedom from the limitations of modern society, while the story was strongly inspired by picaresque fiction; the party's Personas were based on outlaws and rebels from the literature.
Persona 5 has won several awards and has been cited as one of the greatest role-playing video games of all time, with praise given to its visual presentation, gameplay, story, and music. Including Royal, it has also sold over five million copies worldwide, making it the best-selling entry in the Megami Tensei franchise. Several other media have also been released, including two spin-off games, and Persona 5 Strikers, as well as manga and anime adaptations. The game's cast has made appearances in other games, such as Joker appearing as a playable character in the 2018 crossover fighting game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
