Both spin-off and sequel to the incredible J-RPG Person 5 that we can only recommend, Persona 5 Strikers will see the light of day on PlayStation 4 (and 5 necessarily), PC and Nintendo Switch on February 23. Already available in Japan for a while, we necessarily know what to expect with this Muso developed by none other than the little guys from Omega Force (Dynasty Warriors, Hyrule Warriors, Attack on Titan), with the participation also from P-Studio.
With very high marks in the Japanese press, the game is shaping up to be one, if not the best of its kind in recent years, which is no small feat as it is codified and carry out a cross-over between two universes having nothing to do with a base, in this case those of Person and the Muso, is always a tough test.
Moreover, this western exit from Persona 5 Strikers is already shaping up to be critically successful as the game is currently running at an 85/100 average on Metacritic, making it one of the top rated titles of the start of the year by professionals in the video game press.
For the record, the game therefore takes place some time after the events of Person 5 while the city of Tokyo seems struck by countless political scandals. The Phantom Thieves are then forced to resume service and find themselves once again confronted with the Shadows and the unexplained appearance of new Palaces.
As expected and promised by Atlus, Persona 5 Strikers will be released entirely with French subtitles, as for the Royale version of the fifth episode, with the added bonus of English or Japanese dubbing. This is pleasing and a good witness to the ever growing craze for licensing in our country.
Finally, know that we are currently in the midst of the beast test and that our verdict should fall soon. Waiting, take a look at the launch trailer below titled “Liberate Hearts” which will offer you a muscular overview of the gameplay, as well as English dubbing which we find very correct by the way.
