SmashPad’s Most Anticipated Games of 2017

6.) Persona 5 (PS4, PS3)

Persona 5 also ranked very highly in our Most Anticipated Games of 2016, so again, this is here by default. Persona has arguably become the face of modern JRPG’s as of late, and I honestly cannot wait to see what Atlus has come up with in all these years of development.” – Danreb Victorio

“Yes, persistent delays certainly hurt the hype of Persona 5 compared to where it was before, but even though gamers in the west were robbed of an epic Persona 5 vs. Final Fantasy XV faceoff on the release calendar, the consistent quality of what has become Atlus’ flagship property is undeniable. When Persona 5 finally lands in April, it will undoubtedly be one of the early favorites of the year, and based on everything we know of it so far, should still be in the back of gamers’ minds when it comes time to discuss 2017 as a whole in the past tense.” – Patrick Mifflin

“More teenage angst, more incredible creativity, more Freudian monsters, and ACID JAZZ!” – Brandon Perkins
