Pros and cons of Persona 5 (P5) Scramble The Phantom Strikers – Benefits:

Persona 5 Strikers is the sequel of Persona 5 Royal, & it launches on 23 February, 2021 on Switch, PC & PS4. Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers is the first game that changes its genre to RPG. P5 Strikers has a story & the game is set 6 months after P5 events.  

In Strikers, your objective is to defeat a horde of enemies at once. After the events of P5 Royal, your objective is to solve the riddle behind new change of heart cases occurring in Japan.

Joker is accompanied by Baton Pass.

New Jails give you chance to switch between game characters at any time you want. There are multiple playable characters available so it is up to you how you complete the game.

Now you can use button mashing in real time combat with classic Persona 5’s turn-based battle. 3 playable characters can be chosen in this game. Hack & slash battle is taken from Dynasty Warriors & it is combined with RPG battle from P5. You can enjoy real time battle instead of turn-based battle. When deciding abilities from the menu, P5 Strikers will pause, & will allow you to control tactical position of heroes. You can play as every hero of Phantom Thieves both in & out of battle.

Team mates can acquire special moves that you can perform.

If your team mate is able to fill the meter of “Showtime” bar by defeating enemies, then they can perform a destructible Showtime attack.

The game lets you collect Personas that are dropped when enemies are beaten, & they can be fused in the Velvet Room.

The Band system of P5 Strikers allows players to access & update crucial perks, by interacting with special points that can be collected after winning fights. When finishing narrative campaign, you can unlock more abilities.

The game allows you to equip multiple personas, which are dropped randomly or you can acquire them after finishing mini bosses. These Personas can be carried to Velvet Room, which can be used to create new Personas. Instead of Persona 5 Confidant system, you can use Requests, which are side quests, & you can use the Band system, where improvements in level can provide you perks such as stats improvements. The Band levels can be enhanced by interacting with team mates, beating enemies, & achieving milestones during the game.

You can create an active team of 4 playable characters at maximum, but Joker can’t be removed from it. When you are not involved in battle, active team members can be interchanged with the standby team mates. Exploring dungeons is similar to P5 Royal, which allows you to use stealth to avoid fights or puzzles can be solved for progression. Third Eye returns from P5, which can help you in highlighting opponents’ strength & interactive objects. Time will not progress when you leave dungeons, & there is no sufferings in leaving dungeons.

Battles start when you approach opponent, or you can perform a surprise attack to achieve an advantage against an unnoticed foe. Use real time combat system but there is an option to use command-based skills menu where skills of Persona can be used. If team can produce a critical damage or can damage weaken enemy, then the enemy will be knocked out for an “All-Out Attack” which produces severe damage. If every group member is knocked out in battle, then game will end.

I would like to see long ending in P5 Strikers that felt somewhat rushed in P5. In P5, some parts of the narrative remained unresolved so I would like to see more details in the last chapter of the game. This is the only problem I noticed in P5.
