The Phantom Thieves are back! The Digital Deluxe Edition of Persona 5 Strikers is available now and launches for all players February 23 on PlayStation 4.

In Persona 5 Strikers, we’re exploring Jails instead of Prisons, releasing hearts instead of stealing them, and travelling across Japan instead of getting lost in the train stations of Tokyo. However, the same Phantom Thief crew has got your back!

My favorite mechanic of the game is playing as any of the Phantom Thieves. As shown in the episode, you can wield an axe as Haru, execute All-out Attacks after leaping off ice sculptures as Fox, and Baton Pass back to Joker anytime mid-combat. You can explore the cities through platforming and solving puzzles, and it’s all wrapped up in flashy menus and over-the-top combat sequences.

Lastly, the newest member of the group, Sophie, Humanity’s Companion, provides a new way to join the Phantom Thieves through yo-yo-slinging gameplay that you have to try out for yourself.

Or, if you’d rather mow down enemies as the Morgana cat bus, we’ve got you covered:

For the ATLUS and ω-Force developers, the best part of creating the game was working together to blend elements that give Persona 5 Strikers that ‘Persona’ touch, its story and setting, with an incredible action combat system!

For both action and Persona fans alike, Persona 5 Strikers is a brand-new story. So, you’ll be able to jump in the camper and road trip across Japan with the Phantom Thieves just fine.

Persona 5 Strikers officially releases on PlayStation 4 February 23.

Check out what critics are saying about the Phantom Thieves in the new launch trailer:

  • Already preordered, After 165 hours for platinum in P5R i still want more from this world and the amazing characters.

  • Looks interesting. Is this only going to be on PS4 or is it coming to PS5 as well?

  • Will the game have a standalone PS5 native version? Not buying anything until they come clear with their Playstation5 plans.

  • Hi my name isClifton

  • I would like to know also if there are PS5 enhancements?

  • When you get excited seeing the word “Free” but then there is nothing free afterall. LOL

  • For those of you wondering about PS5, there is no native PS5 version and there doesn’t appear to be one in the works.

    HOWEVER, if you run it in backwards compatibility mode, you do get some benefits:

    – You can run it in the quality mode, which is 1440p/unlocked framerate, and the framerate stays pinned to a hard 60fps with no dips that I’ve seen
    – Running it off the internal SSD means load times practically don’t exist

    It’s not as good as a native PS5 version, but it looks VERY sharp (at least on a 1080p TV) and runs butter smooth. If you have a 1440p monitor that’s capable of tricking the PS5 into thinking that it’s 4K, have a TV with a good upscaler, or are still rocking a 1080p TV, it’ll look (and play) phenomenally.

    But even if you’re just running 1440p on a 4K screen with no native upscaler it’s gonna look very, very sharp. Persona 5’s graphical style/art design made the original game a beauty even at lower resolutions on the PS3, and that’ll absolutely carry through here.

    Pick it up, it’s great fun, pretty, and stable.

  • when i play Naruto to Boruto Shinobi Striker on the Sony PlayStation 4. the player are lace and high off of blood just to sit and watch me do all the work drunk off blood

    • so if the player is not playing then they are their for the children for sex on the internet with a game. high off blood

    • if my team never do nothing but i do all the work then they are lace and high off of blood just to sit and play and do nothing

  • I quit working at shoprite to work online and with a little effort I easily bring in around $45 to 85 per/h. Without a doubt, this is the easiest and most financially rewarding job I’ve ever had. I actually started 6 months ago and this has totally changed my life
