Persona 5 Tactica is the upcoming Tactical RPG from Atlus and a spinoff of the popular Persona 5 JRPG released in 2016. The game will again see players join the Phantom Thieves on a new mission with new characters, gameplay, story, and art style while retaining all the charm the series and its characters are known for.
If you are interested in this new take on the Persona 5 title, we’ve got all the details on the upcoming release in this guide, including the release date, platforms, preorders, and trailers.
Everything to Know About Persona 5 Tactica
Persona 5 Tactica will see the return of Joker, Morgana, and all the Phantom Thieves in a new adventure that will take the series into a new genre. The game will take place during the events of Persona 5, and players explore new styles of the metaverse, with Joker and Morgana being the only two unaffected by brainwashing from Marie, the game’s antagonist and leader of the Legionnaires. As you free your friends, you’ll work with the Rebel Corps and their leader, Erina, to save and free these new strange universes with all the flair and thievery fans have come to love.
Players can expect a tactical RPG with a turn-based grid battle system and several mechanics and features that will provide a fresh way to experience and play as the Thieves. This includes plenty of returning features from the series, such as elemental effects, fusing personas, dialogue options, and several from the genre, like cover, elevations, and abilities.
Persona 5 Tactica will also feature several unique mechanics such as voltage, a meter that, once filled, lets you pull off powerful attacks, skill trees and growth points for extra customization and variety, and triple threat attacks, which see you surround and attack enemies all at once with multiple characters. Overall, Persona 5 Tactica is shaping up to be another stellar addition to the Persona 5 collection of games.
