ATLUS has confirmed that Persona 5 Strikers has been localised for a western release on Nintendo Switch in the coming months.
You will have the chance to rejoin the Phantom Thieves, as they set out on a road trip to seek some rest and relaxation. That is, until a ruthless Kyoto detective enlists their help to investigate a series of strange cases that have started to occur across Japan.
With Joker threatened with being arrested if he does not cooperate, the Phantom Thieves’ summer vacation is cut short as they work to uncover the secrets behind the mystery and discover another realm where innocent people are being jailed and forced to forfeit their hearts’ desires by the whims of its ruler.
New story and sights – Persona 5 Strikers features a deep story campaign and thrilling combat that makes for a true Persona experience. Visit 6 different cities across Japan, cook tantalizing regional recipes, and lend a helping hand to those in need; then fight against the Shadows to uncover the source of the corruption within the Metaverse dungeons. Jump into the story whether you are a newcomer to the series or a longtime fan!
Fight with Style – Attack enemies in the hybrid battle system that fuses explosive action-combat with pause-and-plan sequences to decide your next strategic move. Gain an advantage over your enemies by ambushing them, striking their elemental weaknesses to knock them down, and deal the finishing blow with an All-Out Attack!
Harness the Phantom Thieves’ full strength – All Phantom Thieves are fully playable, so utilize each character’s specific skills and summon their Personas for smooth, elegant combat! Strengthen their skills and abilities and fight with your own style. Each character has their own unique suite of wide-ranging, flashy spells and magic to clear out big hordes. Have you ever wanted to fight as a giant cat bus? Well, look no further. Persona 5 Strikers is purrfect for you.
Persona 5 Strikers will release at retail and on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 23rd February 2021.
