Almost fifteen and twelve years after its release in Europe, respectively on PS2 and PSP, the Atlus hit is back to try appeal to new fans who have given up on Persona 5 Royal. So we embark on an adventure that will last forever a convex number of hoursand it will take at least that much to get around the scenario you will be investigating the “Shadow” threatin and around Gekkoukan High School, with a large cast of characters, ready to help you and bring out their Persona in turn-based battles. Note that there are a whole bunch of little new features to better immerse yourself in history (French subtitles, difficulty options, …).

As for its firstborn, mentioned above, this episode of Persona is mixed a storyin the form of visual novel with new characters, in the fictional environment of Inaba, turn-based combatof equipment management as well as the mechanical salt maker of the Persona series. In the same way, it will make it possible for the new version of the game to take better advantage of its plot because it is embedded the same coquetry as Persona 3 Portable with a little subtlety: an “Album” section. to replay the dialogues of some passages and explore all the facets of the scenario.
A Space for the Unbound
An indie game that will take you back in time to the mid-90s in a small town inspired by the Indonesian countryside, anyone? This is exactly the journey that A Space for the Unbound promises usbut more than a walk in unknown lands, this too an inner journey promises the software developed by Mojiken. We definitely dive in a relaxed setting and a plot with a supernatural accentbut also in the minds of Raya and Atma who live their last moments as high school students and caught emotional disturbance and anxiety awakened at the start of this young adult life. And then, the last thing: between two discussions with the locals, you can stop for five minutes to hug the stray cats: this is more than a positive point!

Fire Emblem Engage
Almost three and a half years after the episode Three Houses, Nintendo is back in charge with Fire Emblem Engage to offer us a good dose of strategy.

This power will be a lifesaver for our hero who can callwith its beautifully animated turn-based tactical battles, some of the most famous heroes of the license. Behind this aspect of fan-service, we can still see a most attractive dynamic appearance and particularly neat visuals. In fact, this episode arises, no more or less, as a Nintendo Switch staple at the beginning of the year: this is what we explained to you at the end of our game preview !
