Atlus is full speed ahead with Persona 5 Tactica marketing as we continue to see what the upcoming strategy RPG offers players come November.
In short, my interest has been piqued as we’ve yet to see any Persona game tackle the genre in such a way and yet, every trailer continues to provide enough proof that this is a match made in the Velvet Room.
The latest video forPersona 5 Tactica focuses on the main party, including Ryuji, Ann, Yusuke, Makoto, Futaba, and Haru.
We see a glimpse of each character’s skills to survive in November and how they work together in battle to survive the Shadow onslaught they must face.
While we’ve seen the series as a turn-based entry with Persona 5 Royal, and an action RPG in Persona 5 Strikers, the upcoming Tactica transforms into a strategy game featuring the Phantom Thieves. Instead of invading the Metaverse, Atlus is now revealing Kingdoms, a new area surrounded by Legionnaires.
Their leader, Marie, has brainwashed the Phantom Thieves, except Joker and Morgana. Together, the duo are saved by Erina, leader of the Rebel Corps, letting them know the Metaverse is now The Kingdoms. After evading pursuit from Marie’s troops, our heroes arrive at the Rebel Corps hideout to find it’s an identical version of Leblanc.
Your goal is to discover the truth behind the Kingdoms and find a way to save everyone from Marie’s control—additionally, her master plan is to host the perfect wedding within her Kingdom.
The gameplay is similar to Mario + Rabbids, where the two games allow you to use cover to defend against enemies while also moving around for the optimal damage path to enemies.
Persona 5 Tactica launches on Xbox One, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC on November 17, 2023.
