Set 6 months after the conclusion of Persona 5, Persona 5 Strikers reunites the Phantom Thieves of Hearts for a brand new experience. Rather than concentrating on Tokyo, Persona 5 Strikers broadens the experience to consist of a journey to different areas throughout Japan. Not just is the scope of the journey broadened, however the battle is entirely various from the turn-based fare of Persona 5. 

This time around, the Phantom Thieves traverse dungeons and encounter Shadows, setting off action-packed, hack-and-slash fights. However, the turn-based motivation finishes to Persona 5 Strikers, as Joker, Ann, Ryuji, and business can still summon their Personas for pause-and-plan series that stop the action while you browse the menus. Just as each character has their own Personas with special capabilities, each member of the Phantom Thieves has their own unique capabilities and affinities.

Today, Atlus launched a brand-new trailer highlighting a few of the battle capabilities of the Phantom Thieves. Whether you’re talking Ann’s capability to utilize fire attacks or Makoto’s nuclear affinity, a lot of Persona 5 Strikers’ battle counts on making use of opponent weak points to set off Follow-Up chances and All-Out Attack series. You can see the group reunited and fighting it out with Shadows in the brand-new trailer listed below.

Persona 5 Strikers strikes PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC on February 23. However, you can access the video game beginning on February 19  if you acquire the Digital Deluxe edition.

For more on Persona 5 Strikers, take a look at my early impressions of my time with the video game here. If you have actually failed on Persona 5 to this point and wish to begin at the start, the boosted re-release Persona 5 Royal is the method to go (even if Strikers acts as a follow up to the vanilla variation). To find out about that video game, you can read my evaluation, or take a look at associate editor Jason Guisao’s viewpoint piece on why it’s a video game worth playing – even if you currently experienced the initial.
