It should be noted that the console versions of Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4 Golden, and Persona 5 Royal were exclusively announced for Xbox Series, Xbox One, and PC via Microsoft Store for a 48-hour window before ATLUS confirmed the titles will be available for additional platforms such as PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC via Steam. Gematsu understands Persona 5 Tactica will be available for multiple platforms.
Here is an overview of the game, via ATLUS:
After a strange incident, the Phantom Thieves wander into a bizarre realm where its citizens are living under tyrannical oppression. Surrounded by a military group named Legionnaires, they find themselves in grave danger until a mysterious revolutionary named Erina rescues them and offers an enticing deal in exchange for their help. What truth lies behind Erina and the deal she offers to the Phantom Thieves?
A revolution in your heart.
Nearing graduation, the members of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts gather at Cafe Leblanc on a snowy day. Then suddenly, the world shook and something unusual occurred. A strange light began to illuminate from the doors of the cafe. Cautiously opening the doors, what awaited the group was a new, never-before-seen world.
In a town reminiscent of medieval Europe, Joker and the gang were attacked by a mysterious armed group. Right when they were facing certain doom, they were saved by a person who goes by the name “Elle the Revolutionary.” In return for saving them, she asks for their help in her “revolution” efforts. Will the Phantom Thieves take up her offer?
Led by Elle the Revolutionary, the story begins to unfold!
- Joker (voiced by Jun Fukuyama) – This game’s hero, and the player’s avatar. A second-year high school student. After getting involved in the Psychotic Breakdown incidents, he awakened his Persona. He is the leader of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts, a group that aims to make rotten adults repent and reform. His codename is “Joker.” His Persona is Arsene.
- Morgana (voiced by Ikue Otani) – A mysterious, talking, cat-like being that our heroes met in another world. After being saved by Joker, he tags along with the group. He knows a lot about this world, and so he acts as a guide, as well a mascot. His codename is “Mona.” His Persona is Zorro.
- Elle (voiced by Rie Takahashi) – A girl who saves Joker and the Phantom Thieves when they wandered into the world. She isn’t the best at thinking of details, and tends to act without putting much thought into things. But it is through this ability to act, and her cheerful and spirited personality that she was able to garner the trust of others, making her the leader of the “revolution.” In order to accomplish this revolution, she tries to strike a deal with the Phantom Thieves to help her. But what will happen?
The New All-Out Attack: TRIBANGLE! Show It Off in Battle! – Choose a party of three from the members of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts and Elle. Use “1MORE” to perform an additional action after knocking down an enemy, then finish it off with the All-Out Attack “TRIBANGLE,” which is triggered when the three surround the downed enemy.
Guitar sounds that will pull on your heartstrings!
The concept of the music is some good ol’ rock sounds featuring the guitar as the main component. Vocals for the opening, ending, and inserts will of course be handled by Lyn! The sound composer was the guitarist at the Persona Super Live 2022: Atlas Sound Team’s Toshiki Konishi.
Additional episodes will release at launch alongside the game!
“That long-awaited character” who isn’t mentioned in the main story will make an appearance! Releasing at the same time as the game is the downloadable content “Repaint Your Heart,” complete with new stories and new rules to enjoy battle with.
