Persona 5 Strikers Gets A Stylish New Story Trailer Ahead Of Launch

Persona 5 Strikers has received a new story trailer ahead of its upcoming launch this month and shows off some of the game’s new characters.

The release of Persona 5’s highly-anticipated sequel, Persona 5 Strikers,  is fast approaching and Atlus has celebrated the occasion by releasing a brand new story trailer for the game on YouTube. The trailer gives us a further look at the game’s story and features a couple of new characters. Zenkichi and Shadow Alice – who both first appeared in the game’s Western reveal trailer – are given a little bit more screen time this time around.

The “Liberate Hearts” trailer is the second released for the game this year, the first being the “All-Out-Action” trailer which was published last month. Unlike this latest trailer, “All-Out-Action” showed off some of the live-action combat you’ll be able to experience, alongside the ability to control characters other than Joker.

The Persona series has included turn-based combat since its inception, but Persona 5 Strikers is the franchise’s first attempt at something a little more fast-paced. Instead of slow, methodical fights, Strikers has been developed with the help of Omega Force and will feature the iconic hack and slash style of combat as seen in games like Dynasty Warriors and Zelda spin-off Hyrule Warriors.

Persona 5 Strikers takes place six months after the events of the original Persona 5 and not Persona 5: Royal, as has been confirmed by the game’s director. Joker and the gang set out on summer vacation but plans quickly go awry and a mysterious investigation takes the Phantom Thieves all across Japan. The game will feature all-new characters as well as a new addition to the team in Sophia.

The pandemic may have delayed the game to 2021, but Persona 5 Strikers will finally release on February 23rd for PC (Steam), PS4, and Nintendo Switch. Owners of the elusive PlayStation 5 will also be able to play the game via backward compatibility. If you’d like to learn more about Persona 5 Strikers, you can read our review of the game here.
