Persona 5 Strikers has lastly launched worldwide for PlayStation 4, PC, and Change, and also you in all probability know by now that it is a sorta-sequel spinoff that continues the timeline of Persona 5. However with the unique RPG not being accessible on non-PlayStation platforms, the query of whether or not or not newcomers can nonetheless get pleasure from Strikers is a pertinent one. And the straightforward reply is: Sure, however your mileage will fluctuate.
In my Persona 5 Strikers review, I praised the sport’s action-RPG fight mechanics, glorious soundtrack, and new characters, amongst different issues. And the truth that I bought to see my previous mates, the Phantom Thieves, once more as they go on a summer season trip to get pleasure from life and save the world yet another time was an actual deal with. The opening hours do spend time plainly re-establishing the character traits of its returning solid, however after all, it isn’t the identical as seeing them develop into who they’re of their 100-hour journey prior. So if you wish to have a very deep bond with the solid, I might suggest taking part in Royal first.
Nonetheless, the charisma of the Phantom Thieves shines by in how they specific themselves and battle within the Metaverse, the alternate dimension the place all of the battles happen. If they do not make a powerful impression on you when assembly them of their regular lives, they’re positive to win you over with the way in which they stylishly tear by demonic adversaries. Their personas, particular assaults, and distinctive animations in Strikers actually embody the Phantom Thieves’ combating spirit, and that alone says so much about who they’re.
