The Smosh Games YouTube channel released a new Honest Game Trailer for the Persona series, in honor of the release of Persona 5. We would have preferred a P5-specific trailer, but we’ll take it. It’s well worth a watch for new and longstanding Persona fans.

For a brief video, it manages to touch on a lot of the key strengths and weaknesses of the series: the crazy boss designs, traveling to the meat dimension, insta-kill death spells, collecting all the waifus and so on. But how could they not mention the music? Even if a 80-hour dungeon crawler / social sim isn’t your cup of tea, who could resist the toe-tapping craziness of a Persona soundtrack?

Check out the Persona honest trailer below:

We do, however, have one objection to this new Honest Trailer: “best girl” Chie? She’s a fun character and a solid party member, but from our point of view there are way better girls to crush on in the Persona series. For us, it’s a toss-up between P5 newcomer Futaba and P4’s high school detective Naoto. Of course, these kinds of arguments about who to romance are one of the most delightful parts of the series.

Here’s hoping we get a female MC option in Persona 5 Golden (which could already be in the works), so we can live out our dreams of romancing the articulate weirdo painter Yusuke and friendzoning the shit out of that try-hard Mishima. But even if P5G happens, our hearts will always belong to P3’s adorable brawler Akihiko and his fetching tee / speedo combo.
