Last Modified May 8, 2024 10:48 GMT

Persona 5 Tactica is part of Atlus’s renowned Persona series, which is part of an even bigger game universe, the Megami Tensei franchise. The events of this game take place simultaneously with that of Persona 5. The Phantom Thieves mysteriously get stuck in an alternate world, where the citizens are being oppressed by the military group, Legionnaires. Now, they must fight the military group while also unraveling the secret of their new mysterious friend named Erina.

Persona 5 Tactica Gameplay

Atlus started the development of Persona 5 Tactica in hopes of creating a tactical role-playing Persona game. The players control a three-member party on a grid-based map that is filled with enemies. Upon confronting the enemies, the players get into a turn-based fight, something which has been a staple for the Persona series.

Every character on the player’s part has unique Personas and skills. However, the characters can be equipped with other ones as Sub-Personas, which will grant them additional skills. These extra Personas can be acquired as a reward from battles or fusing multiple Personas. As for the Skills, they have different elemental affinities as in Persona 5. However, every elemental affinity would have the enemy move differently during a fight in Persona 5 Tactica.
