We cover all of the great game releases here on Best Buy’s blog. We even send bloggers to E3, the biggest gaming event in the world, every June so we can bring you the latest information about gaming. However, we rarely get a chance to give away one of those coveted new releases: until now! Enter now right here on the blog for your chance to win the amazing new Persona 5 video game.
Many people have been anticipating the arrival of the newest version of Persona in Canada (read a full review of the game by Gaming Editor Paul Hunter) I’m happy to say that it is here at Best Buy. To help celebrate, Best Buy and video game publisher Atlus, are giving away 3 copies of the game: 2 Steelbook Launch Editions and one Take Your Heart Premium Edition (prizes shown above).
What is special about Persona 5
Person 5 is a role playing game set in Tokyo. You assume the character of a high school student: he and his friends, live double lives. As the rebellious Phantom Thieves of Hearts, the group of troubled youth spend part of their time using fantastic powers, to enter the hearts of corrupt people to basically destroy the evil and transform them. This series is wildly popular so you know that Persona 5 is going to be huge gaming hit in 2017.
Our gaming writer, Paul Hunter, received an advance copy of Persona 5 and quickly wrote a mini-review after trying it out for a few hours so we could learn a little about this new game (go here for his full review). His more detailed review is forthcoming next week after many hours spent discovering all that is new and exciting about this version of the game. Here are a few of his early observations:
- includes many gorgeous cutscenes :Everything looks superb, perhaps the best anime-style cutscenes in a video game yet
- it is chatty
- fights I’ve be in so far have been very much traditional Persona fare
- Legendary composer Shoji Meguro is back to score Persona 5: the soundtrack is upbeat and inspired
Read Paul’s initial impressions then come back here to let us know what you are looking forward to the most in the Persona 5.

I love the story line.
With Persona 5 having one of the most surreal experiences and representation of modern day Japan, I wanted to play Persona 5 in the hopes of experiencing Japans culture as a ticket to fly to Japan along with accommodation would cost significantly more. I really can’t wait to just enjoy the experience of being a student while taking down enemies at the same time!
one of my favorite feature is the sound track of the game is amazing. Also the anime scenes of the game.
I’d say the anime cut scenes

One of my favourite features in Persona is the soundtrack, and I hope the music in Persona 5 is as good as the previous titles.
Looking forward to watching the anime cut scenes.
I would love to see the fighting cutscenes and the same amazing style of artwork!
I’ve heard so many people rave about this game, and excited to play a classic turn based rpg. The ‘confidants’ social aspect looks really intriguing.
The cut scenes specifically because they are Anime styled
I am going to say the fighting & cutscenes
The cut scenes are the best!
I would say the fights
The soundtrack for Persona 4 golden was really catchy, Atlus games in general have very good soundtracks like Catherine. Persona 5 soundtrack is more like acid jazz I have heard a bit of it, its great can’t wait to start my 100 plus hour journey with persona 5 soon!
Making friends and getting to know the various characters better thought the social link system
your duplicate entry was deleted as you requested: the blog often delays posting comments and asks me to manually moderate.
The fighting & cutscenes.
100 hours of beautiful gaming play in tokyo, I am in !
Can’t wait to be submerged into 100 hours of beautiful game play in Tokyo…
I’ve read multiple good reviews on this game, and seen the stylish gameplay. Seems worth a shot.
I hope they leave in the fight scenes
I hope persona 5 has the cutscenes
This look like a fun game. Love to have one
I am looking forward to the fights!
My favourite feature is the cutscenes!
I love when a game syncs up perfectly with what you are doing in the game. It enhances it so much more. This soundtrack with the fight must be great.
The fighting and the cutscenes. I’ve always been a fan of anime styled games so I look forward to the each of the Persona games!
1. The quality of Social Links or in this case, the Confidants. They play a huge role in the Persona games and are always welcome.
2. The combination of exciting turn based battles and the upbeat music that syncs very well with them.
Has to be the fight scenes!!!
Dating and the dungeon.
My absolute favourite part of the Persona games is the flashy art styles and exciting fight sequences. Everything combined really helps to immerse you into the game and I look forward to playing Persona 5 hopefully if I win! It would be an excellent prize to celebrate finishing exams.
The extremely flashy and colourful animations throughout the game and especially in the fight scenes are my absolute favourite parts of Persona and especially Persona 5! I would love to be able to play the new game now that I’m finally finished my exams!
I love the art of Persona, so starting at will be my favourite, and I’m looking forward to all the cutscenes!
I have to agree, the cutscenes are amazing.
