Persona 5

Persona 5 - Title Screen

While the story is certainly not devoid of anime tropes…it’s easily the best written and thought out story that the modern series has seen so far.



Mikami also noted that Vanquish was heavily inspired in both look and feel by the 1970s anime Shinzou Ningen Casshan by Tatsunoko Productions.

Phantasy Star Nova

Phantasy Star Nova - Title Screen

Phantasy Star Nova is essentially Sega letting tri-Ace run with Phantasy Star Online 2, with the guidelines that it must be story and single-player focused.

Bayonetta 2

Bayonetta 2 - Title Screen

The best compliment I can pay Bayonetta 2 is that I had more fun with it than I did playing any other video game in a very long time.

Sakura Taisen: Hana Gumi Taisen Columns

Sakura Taisen Hana Gumi Columns Title Screen

All in all, this title really has a lot of great things to offer to Sakura Taisen fans. There is a ton of original art displayed in the background as the Columns matches are going on, a good amount of original voice acting is featured, and you can even customize the jewels to be tiny Sakura heads.
