Although a few days out from the game’s official release, ATLUS West made a somewhat controversial decision by making early access to Persona 5 Strikers (by several days) available to those who pre-ordered the game’s Digital Deluxe Edition on the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch or Steam. If you are one of those people who purchased this specific edition, then good news! Head to your chosen digital distribution platform and begin hacking and slashing your way through hundreds and thousands of shadows as the Phantom Thieves!
For those who did not purchase the Digital Deluxe Edition or otherwise purchased the game at retail, you will be able to access the game starting 23rd February 2021 in North America (or regional equivalent).
Persona 5 Strikers is a sequel, spin-off game to Persona 5. Rather than traditional RPG mechanics, players are made to hack’n’slash their way through hundreds of shadows in an experience co-developed by ATLUS’ P-Studio and Koei Tecmo’s Omega Force team. This time around, players will set out on an epic road trip with the Phantom Thieves, where they strike back against a new corruption overwhelming cities across Japan.
