Do I need to go watch the four Persona 3 movies and the Persona 4 and Persona 4 Golden anime to see this? And do I need to play the game first?

Well I think you might be a little too late to try playing Persona 5 before watching the anime. You should check out the prequel anime, The Day Breakers. That should give you a sense of what Persona 5 will be like.

This will be a follow-up anime connected to the Persona the Animation: THE DAY BREAKERS that aired September 2016.

In the spring of his second year of highschool, Ren Amamiya transfers into Shujin Academy in Tokyo. Due to unforeseen circumstances and an incident, Ren awakens as a “persona” user. Together with his newly-made friends, they form the Phantom Thieves of Hearts.

While stealing the “distorted desires” of adults who have been bathed in evil, they force them to reform. They also go around their town and solve incidents one by one involving adults who have mysteriously lost their minds.

Three Episode Impression

Persona 5 tells the story of Ren Amamiya who has just transferred in. There, he meets Ryuuji and they become friends. Obviously, a lot is going on behind the scenes and Kamoshida, the gym teacher and volleyball coach is at the center of it. Later they learn that he’s abusing the students after Ren and Ryuuji wander into a palace and have their personae awoken. Oh and of course, Morgana makes their debut as well. After that, they try to find a way to expose Kamoshida and help Shiho who has just attempted to commit . Then Ann gets a persona as they try to figure out what to do next. If you have played the game, then be prepared for the exact same thing. We saw it with the Persona 3 movies and Persona 4’s anime. The story is moving slow enough that we are probably looking at a 2 cours anime, but nothing has been announced officially. However, past habits do indicate that this is going to be 2 cours. If you have not played the game, the anime, like the game, is going to be very dark and gritty and confront various different issues throughout. If you have caught the Persona 4 anime, then you are going to enjoy this. We are going to keep watching as it was interesting enough.
