Persona 5 Strikers puts a new spin on a modern classic by radically changing up many of the things players are familiar with. As Joker, you’ll be heading back into the Metaverse in order to fight for the hearts of the people of Japan. It’s awesome to see the cast leave Tokyo and fight for truth and justice all across Japan and we’ve got the goods on how to best assist them in their endeavors.
While much of what players know from Persona 5 will still kind of work here, there are a lot of new things to keep in mind. Luckily for you, everything you need to know and more can be found right here in our guides and features hub. You’ll be cutting a swath through the demonic hoards in no time. Just watch out for spoilers. Some things are better left unsaid.
