The Persona series is a spin-off series in the Megami Tensei family of games which began with the release of Revelations: Persona in 1996. There are currently five titles in the Persona series, with a sixth title announced to be released in July of 2008. All the games in the series take place in the same universe and share certain common elements.

Differences Between Megami Tensei and Persona

Unlike in Megami Tensei and Shin Megami Sense, the Persona series does not involve recruiting demons to fight for you. The player characters still carry a firearm and melee weapon like in Shin Megami Tensei, but magic comes from Personae as opposed from demons. Like demons, these Personae can be fused in order to create more powerful Personae. In addition, the lunar phases are important, which is a common theme in MegaTen games.
Persona features an angled third-person perspective, but dungeons are still navigated using Megami Tensei's first person view. Since the release of Persona 2: Innocent Sin, the first-person dungeon exploration has been removed.
