Have you heard of this mysterious game the schoolkids have been whispering about? It's called the Persona game. With the help of our friend Ian, we take on the very first installment in the Persona series. Released for the PSX in 1996, the first Persona is a lot closer to Shin Megami Tensei than what the series would become, but there are plenty of portents of what would come later. You've got teenagers, the Velvet Room, and a shadowy corporation pulling the strings...along with non-sequitirs like a fearsome mouse-tank boss.
