Persona 5 Strikers is just shy of one month away from its Western debut on PS4, Switch, and PC. Atlus is starting to bust out the big guns for its Musou-infused sequel to the original Persona 5, with the latest media splash being last week’s action-packed new trailer.
Rejoice, all ye fans of the Phantom Thieves, for Atlus has once again blessed us with fresh footage of Joker and his cohorts dishing out damage in the name of vigilante justice.
The trailer centers on the unique combat abilities each party member possesses, showcasing that trademark P5 stylishness with every flashy move. I’d hate to be a Shadow in this particular Persona entry; it’s like they exist to be ridiculed by animations ten times cooler than anything they could ever hope to achieve.
Persona 5 Strikers will launch in the West on February 23rd. If you’re the pre-ordering sort of player, you’re in luck — the incentives are pretty strong this time around. Not only will buyers of the Digital Deluxe Edition have the chance to play the game four days early on February 19th; you’ll also gain access to numerous handy stat-boosting items and a nice little collection of music tracks from prior installments in the acclaimed Persona franchise.
Look for our review around release, and in the meantime, don’t miss Nathan’s hands-on preview!
