PS4/PS3 Exclusive Persona 5 Awarded Near-Perfect 39/40 on Famitsu; Lasts 80 Hours

on September 6, 2016 11:23 AM

As usual at this point of the week, the first copies of Famitsu have been leaked in Japan, and they bring good tidings. Persona 5 was awarded a 10/10/10/9 by the publication’s four reviewers, summing up to a near-perfect 39/40.

The review also mentions that the average clear time is 80 hours, and that there’s a lot of additional content to enjoy on top of it.

Incidentally, Famitsu has tightened its review scores in the past few years (they used to be a lot more generous), and awarding a 39 out of 40 is definitely quite rare.

Looks like we’ll be in for a treat on February 14th, when the game will be released in the west for PS4 and PS3.
